• Holiday Gift Guide for the Pug Lover

    December 6, 2013

    You guys knew this post was coming! Winking smile

    Are you shopping for a pug owner this year? Or maybe you’re a pug lover yourself and want to give your family and friends some ideas? Well, look not further. Here are a bunch of holiday gift ideas that just about any pug lover will enjoy!

    2014 Pugs of Instagram Calendar

    The Pugs of Instagram Calendar features photographs of some of the most adorable pugs from the Instagram feed of the same name. How adorable. Murphy is hoping to get his picture in the 2015 calendar. Other great pug calendars: Pug Mugs, Just Black Pugs, and Pug Puppies.


    ModCloth Wisdom by Winston Tee

    Every pug owner needs a pug shirt in their wardrobe. This one is adorable and stylish at the same time. I love the flattering scoop neck and extra long length and, of course, the simple, geeky pug image on the front. Mal and I always say “pugs are the nerds of the dog world!”


    Some other pug t-shirt suggestions:

    Anthropologie Pug Pendant Necklace

    I love this pug necklace from Antropologie so much. Usually, pug jewelry is kind of over-the-top and a bit gaudy and not something that I would typically wear, but this necklace is simple and delicate. I also love these 18k gold plated stud earrings: Pug Stud Earrings. They’re pretty without being too much.


    Coin Pooch Change Purse

    This pug change purse is the most adorable thing ever, and it would make a great stocking stuffer! This coin purse is also adorable!


    The Stressed Out Pug Ankle Socks

    These socks are so ridiculous and make me smile every time I see them. They’re guaranteed to give the pug lover in your life a good laugh! P.S. There’s a Frenchie puppy pair too! Other pug sock favorites: Polka-dot Pug Socks and Pug Dog Socks.


    Fab Vanca Craft Pug Keychain

    How adorable is this keychain? I love that it’s made from fine leather, so your keychain looks a little sophisticated—well, as much as it possibly could as a pug keychain. Ha! It comes in both black and fawn. A couple of other pug accessories that the men in your life might need: Pug Tie and Pug Cufflinks.


    Puppy Dog Eyes Toiletry Bag

    A pug face on either side of your toiletry bag? Adorable. This glossy, zippered case includes two full-length pockets to help you keep everything organized.



    BarkBox is something both dogs and humans will love! We’re big fans of it here in our house. It’s a fun gift for any dog lover (or dog)!


    The Adventures of Milo and Otis Movie

    Every pug lovers needs this movie! I think Otis was the first pug that I fell in love with. My favorite part: Here comes the dog, strong and brave… woof


    Pug Lotion & Toothbrush Holder Set

    Because you need pug décor in every room of your house, obviously.


    I hope this post gave you some fun ideas for the pug lover in your life!

    Happy shopping!

    Ha! The Adventures of Milo and Otis – I haven’t seen that movie since I was a kid. I can’t believe they don’t show it on cable stations more often – its much better than some of the movies they show.


    Linda @ running4two December 6, 2013 at 8:32 am

    Those socks!!! I would totally wear them and make sure people could see. LOL. Very cute gift ideas.


    Sam @ Better With Sprinkles December 6, 2013 at 8:49 am

    I basically need to send this to everyone I know 😉 this is our first Christmas with our pug, Atticus (he’s 9 months old) and I think that by now, everyone knows how generally pug-obsessed I am!
    But those pug socks….those I definitely need. :-p


    Livi December 6, 2013 at 9:00 am

    so cute! I love that anthro necklace!


    Chrissy December 6, 2013 at 9:05 am

    Milo and Otis still makes me cry!!!!


    Melissa December 6, 2013 at 9:24 am

    Wow, haha! This is hilarious. Now I’m curious about if there are some of these products/gifts for Bichon lovers (I have a bichon frise named Oliver!)


    Jacqui @ All in Moderation December 6, 2013 at 9:27 am

    I saw this wall art at Bed, Bath and Beyond that would be perfect for every pug beer lover.


    Sara @ LovingOnTheRun December 6, 2013 at 9:48 am

    Hahaha love all of these! Especially that shirt – I think you should get it for sure!!


    Elizabeth @ Positive Change December 6, 2013 at 10:05 am

    I love this because I love pugs but I am not able to have a “real” one because I am so allergic! That t-shirt is awesome and I am totally putting it on my Christmas list!


    Jackie December 6, 2013 at 10:19 am

    Ashley December 6, 2013 at 11:10 am

    Mary December 6, 2013 at 11:29 am

    Hi Tina! I think the pug necklace from anthro is this necklace by dogeared (also in gold) http://www.dogeared.com/wag-bulldog-necklace%2C-sterling-silver/D1SS200010299.html#prefn1=collection&prefv1=wag-by-dogeared&start=7
    And today through Monday, you can get 20% off on their website! Just thought I’d share the promotion.


    Tina December 6, 2013 at 11:32 am



    Tara December 6, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    @Mary: Thank you for the link! I just ordered one for a Christmas gift!


    Ashley December 6, 2013 at 11:37 am

    Milo & Otis was my favorite movie!! Planning on getting an orange tabby and a pug so I can name them just that!


    Tina December 6, 2013 at 11:47 am

    I had an orange tabby growing up, and now I have Murph. Milo and Otis was definitely a big factor in my decision! :)


    Hayley in Training December 6, 2013 at 11:49 am

    Hahaha! This whole post made me giggle.


    michelle kim December 6, 2013 at 11:49 am

    I don’t even have a put but the pug toiletries bag is super cute! It would make me smile every time I saw it, hehe.


    Caitlin December 6, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    I wish I owned a pug so I had an excuse to buy all these amazing things!!


    Katie @ Peace Love & Oats December 6, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    Tina@GottaRunNow December 6, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    Sarah December 6, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    Tina December 6, 2013 at 1:44 pm
    Fizz @fizzsbizz December 6, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    Hahaha this is too much!

    I can’t believe there are enough things to do a full post for pug enthusiasts. Amazing!


    Jessica W. December 6, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    These are great! My husband actually put fawn-colored pug on his Christmas list!


    Shel@PeachyPalate December 6, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    Tina December 6, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    THAT WAS SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Alex @ Kenzie Life December 6, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    I loved this! These are all great ideas for my family since I’m the biggest pug lover :) But I do have the “Pugs Not Drugs” Urban Outfitters shirt. That’s always a winner in my book :)


    Bezzymates December 6, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    Oh to have the life of a pug.


    Megan @ Meg Go Run December 6, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    I don’t have a pug, but reading your blog makes me want one. :)


    Anna December 6, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    Oh my goodness! As a pug owner myself I am loving all these ideas. I may have to get a few of them, the t-shirts, jewelry and key chain are my favorites. The calendar would be hysterical too.


    Hannah December 7, 2013 at 2:49 am

    My boyfriend will die when he sees this! We’re planning on getting a pug: I just adore their little squishy faces. Great post! xx


    Alyson December 7, 2013 at 8:49 am

    This could possibly be the best blog post ever written.



    Tina December 7, 2013 at 10:33 am

    Haha! Thanks!


    Erica @ For the Sake of Cake December 7, 2013 at 9:55 am

    Love ALL of these! My husband has the Pugs Not Drugs t-shirt and just recently got the Notorious P.U.G. one… I think I need a pug shirt of my own!
