It’s fun to put together gifts for anyone who cares about animals because there is such a wide variety of gifts that would impress and be appreciated by any animal lover.

1. Crazy Animal Socks

Okay, seriously though, who doesn’t love a funny and adorable pair of socks? Getting someone who loves animals a fun pair of crazy animal socks is sure to be a hit. A flashy pair of socks is a practical gift but also a fun one because they make a great accessory to an outfit.

They’re great to lounge around the house in or to wear out and there are so many different crazy animal socks out there, there’s bound to be a perfect pair waiting for the animal lover in your life!

2. Animal Tea Infuser

If you know your animal lover also enjoys a good cup of tea, then consider getting them a cute and fun animal-themed tea infuser! This is a good gift because it’s funny and adorable, but also useful! Tea infusers are a great way to enjoy a really good cup of tea at home.

Rather than using tea bags, tea infusers require loose-leaf tea mixes and often times produce a stronger and more flavorful tea than a tea bag alone. So with this gift, your animal lover is getting a tea upgrade and a really cute animal themed accessory for their mug! It’s a win-win!


3. NWF Adopt An Animal Program

Through the National Wildlife Federation’s Wildlife Adoption Program, you can symbolically adopt an animal from their large list of endangered wildlife species in the name of your favorite animal lover. They have different packages available with varying prices, but the money goes directly towards helping to support the work of the NWF to protect these endangered animals, so it’s truly a gift you can feel good about giving.

The most popular package comes with a certificate of adoption with a picture of the animal you’ve adopted, a poster, a wall calendar, and an adorable stuffed animal! It’s a really thoughtful gift that has a positive impact on endangered wildlife and the animal lover in your life will surely feel touched that you’ve done such a sweet thing in their name. 


4. Animal Jewelry 

A simple yet impactful gift, getting someone who loves animals a piece of adorable animal-themed jewelry is a clever gift they’re sure to appreciate. There are so many different options for places to find adorable animal jewelry, but I’d suggest shopping locally to support small businesses, or try looking on Esty!

There are lots of shops on Etsy that specialize in crafting super cute and fashionable animal jewelry and you can feel good supporting small businesses. With so many adorable pieces and accessories to choose from, you should have no problem finding some cute jewelry that’s perfect for the animal lover you’re searching for!


5. Lokai Humane Society Bracelet 

These bracelets by Lokai support the Humane Society of the United States. When you buy one, one dollar of the proceeds goes towards supporting the Humane Society and the important work they do saving the lives of so many animals each year. They come in a nice seafoam green color and are durable and fashionable! The story of the lokai bracelet is that it helps to keep you spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally balanced in life.

The white bead contains water from Mt. Everest and the black contains mud from the Dead Sea, the highest and lowest points in the world, to help you get through the highs and lows of life while staying balanced. This is a great gift for any animal lover because the proceeds help support the saving of animals, and is super cute!


6. Animal Flower Planter

Who doesn’t love a succulent? These planters are super adorable and look great holding colorful succulents or small houseplants. There are many places to find such cute planters, but again I’d recommend checking out Etsy. It’s a great place to find a variety of different designs so you can have the freedom to shop around for the perfect animal planter for your animal lover!

These planters make a great gift because they’re practical and make a really cute decoration for your animal lover’s place. They look great anywhere and are sure to be a hit with anyone who loves cute animals!

It may seem surprising, but there are actually so many possibilities to choose from when it comes to animal-themed books. You could go the funny route, and get your animal lover a hilarious book of poems written from a dog’s perspective they can read when they need a good laugh, or you could get them a more serious story or novel.
