It's pretty easy to spot a dog lover these days. If they're not posting cute photos of their pet, then they're rocking a breed-specific bumper sticker, taking their pup to breweries and coffee shops, including them in their Halloween costume, and the ultimate tell making their pooch the star of their annual Christmas card.

In fact, we bet you have several dog lovers on your list. So why not draw inspiration from their favorite subject and treat them to a pawsome gift? Here are 45 ideas — from funny stocking stuffers and cute dog-themed decor to essential travel gear and tech — that will please the dog lovers, dog parents and even dog walkers and sitters on your list.

Best Stocking Stuffers for Dog Lovers

If you ask us, the best stocking stuffers are practical or something fun that they wouldn't think to buy for themselves. Knock it out of the park this year with a Pooch Selfie Stick for their Instagram feed, a FurZapper for their clothes or an Aquapaw Lick Mat to make bath time easier. You could also go with a mug, desk calendar, bottle opener or a card deck about interpreting dog body language.

Best Ornaments for Dog Lovers

You can't go wrong with a meaningful ornament. Commemorate the day they brought their best buddy home or a special memory from this year with a custom ornament for their tree. Even a simple paw print featuring their pet's name will make the recipient smile big time.

Best New Pet Supplies for Dog Lovers

If they recently welcomed a new pet to their home (or they're getting a puppy for Christmas), then make the transition a little easier with some caregiving essentials. We love the gift bundle below because it includes a rope leash, a waste bag holder and a few toys to get them started. But if you're not sure which items they actually need, you can always opt for a Chewy gift card, a toy storage basket or a tote for use on the go.

Best Personalized Gifts for Dog Lovers

The quickest way to a dog lover's heart? A personalized gift that will help keep their fur baby close. Ladies will love the engraved ring and necklace below, while men will appreciate the custom face mug and photo-realistic pillow for their favorite chair. And if there's a little dog lover on your list? Go ahead and grab the "How My Dog Saved Christmas" book to read on Christmas Eve.

Best Home Decor Gifts for Dog Lovers

Combine two of their two greatest loves — dogs and home design — with an accent they can proudly display around the house. Think a cheese board that you can customize to their specific breed, a set of cocktail glasses, a festive wine bottle holder, an embroidered throw blanket, etc. We have a feeling they'd get a huge kick out of the "No Need to Knock" doormat as well.

Best Wearable Gifts for Dog Lovers

What dog lover doesn't want to match their pet on Christmas morning? If they already have a set of tartan pajamas or a cozy knit sweater, then dial up the fun with a coordinating outfit for their four-legged best friend. Or, if their style is a bit more low-key, then surprise them with comfy slippers or a new fanny pack to wear on long walks around the neighborhood.

Best Travel Gifts for Dog Lovers

If they regularly travel with their pet, then take note and treat your dog lover to some useful gear. The non-slip car seat cover and portable dog paw washer will protect their vehicle from scratches, stray hair and dirt. (Which is so necessary after a trip to the dog park.) Meanwhile, the all-in-one travel tote and elevated cot-style dog bed are convenient for flights and camping trips respectively.

Best Tech Gifts for Dog Lovers

Technology keeps getting better and better for pet parents. If they're dying to know their dog's breed or what their pal is up to during the day, then hand them a Wisdom Panel Essential Dog DNA Test or a Furbo 360-Degree Treat Tossing Camera. Other thoughtful tech gift ideas include a waterproof GPS tracker for hikes and an LED safety light for long walks at night.

Best Gifts for Dog Walkers & Dog Sitters

How do you possibly thank the person who helps care for your fur baby? Start with an Amazon gift card and pair it with something cheeky, like an "I Let the Dogs Out" t-shirt or a novelty mug for their morning coffee. A custom ornament will go a long way as well.
