There’s nothing more exciting than bringing a new puppy or even a new rescue dog home. While there is plenty of excitement, it can also be slightly overwhelming with so many new things to think about! Puppy proofing, what bed to get, where will they sleep?
Thankfully buying gifts for new puppy owners isn’t quite as daunting, but with so many things to choose from where do you start? So we’ve pulled together some super cute puppy gift-giving ideas.

Puppy’s are BIG chewers! They love nothing more than exploring with their chompers, whether that’s your slippers or a destruction of bedding.
This is usually a result of the teething process. These bone toys satisfy the natural need to bite while also cleaning dental plaque and preventing the formation of tartar.
Tiny bristles on the bone raise during chewing meaning it acts similarly to a toothbrush. The toys are suitable for all breeds and have not been chemically treated or bleached.
Training a puppy isn’t always a walk in the park, especially on your first time. This simple guide talks you step by step through getting your new furry best friend settled.

If there’s one thing you need to be prepared for as a new puppy owner, it’s the number of toys and treats that will fill your home. These handmade personalised dog toy bones, treat bags and dog toy box make a great gift for new puppy owners. They’re available in two colours, natural canvas or polka dot grey.
When you get a puppy, the last thing you’ll think about is getting some nice water and food bowls. But did you know having a good bowl is important? Plastic bowls can harbor bad smells, it’s easily scratched (causing bacteria growth), and of course it can be chewed by puppies. So personalised bowls like this are a real treat, easy to clean and difficult for your dog to pick up. They come in either a gloss marble effect, gloss white, matte black or a deep green matte.
This is more than a cute soft play toy, but it’s a great companion and comforter for young puppies and even smaller dogs. Puppies are instinctively drawn to their mother’s intimacy, physical warmth and heartbeat – so the little pup is used to super snuggles with the whole pack. Of course, this is missed when they move into a new home. So this toy provides a ‘real-feel’ pulsing heartbeat, which provides your puppy with an extra source of comfort for your pet. This can also reduce negative behaviour resulting from anxiety, including whining and barking.
This wooden box is the perfect container for your dog’s treats. Personalised and engraved with their name no less. Keep your dogs biscuits and chew sticks in the oak effect container so your dog knows they have their own special treat box. Just make sure to put it out of reach or the treats might go missing!
This range of pet blankets are expertly embroidered with your dog’s name and adorned with a cute paw print for an extra touch of personalisation. The embossed fleece fabric is soft and cosy, perfect for lining a dog bed or basket. It can also be used as a throw for the car seat or just to snuggle up with your fur baby.
With a choice of three colours and an array of thread colours this blanket will keep your dog snuggly year round.
These dog drying towels are super absorbent and made of soft microfibres. Personalise it by adding your pooches name above the cute pawline outprint.
This towel is lightweight and folds up nicely and compactly meaning it can be used at home or is a great travel and beach option. The high quality of the microfibres also mean you can be sure the towel will be long lasting.
This water bottle is portable and convenient, perfect for walks and days out with your pup. The carabiner can be attached to your backpack or stroller easily. Available in 550 ml or 350 ml sizes you can be sure your pup will never go thirsty.
