If you have a dog or cat, there’s a good chance your smartphone’s camera roll is absolutely stacked with images of them — especially if you don’t also have human children. These photos are great memories to look back on, and they can be fun to share with friends and family on Instagram. Why not take it a step further and turn them into stylish art and wall decor for your home?

With just a photo or two of your dog or your cat — or your pet bird, horse, snake, bunny, hamster or chinchilla — artists can make paintings, embroidered gifts and digital masterpieces you can print and frame. A pet portrait can be a great way to show how much of a part of your family your pet really is, and it can also be a beautiful way to honor a pet who has passed away.

These options for all budgets also make great gifts for the friend or family member, whether their new puppy is all they’re able to talk about or their pet has been by their side for years. Because believe it or not, the past few months have flown by, and we’re already creeping up on the holiday season.
