There’s nothing quite like the love between a human and their dog, especially if said dog has A) changed their life in some shape or form, B) proven to be a world-class snuggler, or C) been generally awesome. Which is pretty much a given, if you ask me anyone.

Dog lovers don’t need a holiday to show their pups how much they care, particularly because dogs do not understand the workings of a calendar, but their people certainly won’t mind. Check out these 21 bomb Valentine’s Day gifts for dog lovers!

1. BarkBox (or Super Chewer) Subscription, $22/mo+

Give the gift of quality toys designed in-house, full-size bags of treats, and meaty chews each month for the pups who happily take the blame for your gas. You guys are the real troopers.

2. Custom Handmade Dog Bowl, $48

These personalized wheel-thrown stoneware bowls are hand-stamped and dipped in a glaze that suits your fancy. Serve up that fancy filet mignon V-day dinner in something just as special!

3. Orthopedic Gel Memory Foam Dog Bed, $34.99–54.99

Dogs get a healthy 12-14 hours of beauty sleep on the daily, so their snoozles should be spent on something worthy. The gel + memory foam combo provides relief for sore joints, and the removable and washable cover is a huge cleanup bonus.

4. Canvas Pet Tote, $160–180

As canine chauffeur, you know that comfort and convenience are top priorities for travel. The folks at Love Thy Beast designed this carry tote with tough, double-layer canvas, a wide head scoop, and storage pockets for stray treats and poop bags.

5. Dog Park Trio Bundle, $58

Made for pup parents who are all too familiar with those dog park struggles, this bundle includes a roomy canvas tote with treat pocket, ball pouch, poop bag holder, six rolls of poop bags, and a four-pack of the best balls ever.

6. WagWellies, $64

Wet and muddy paws are the bane of floors everywhere, so why not stop the mess at the source? 100% rubber, open-vented slits for easy dressing, and a secure strap make these booties last through all manner of puddle jumping.

7. Shock Absorbent Leash, $35.99–41.99

Got a case of shoulder-pulled-out-of-socket? Dogs lunging at squirrels are NBD with these leashes’ shock absorbent spring, locking leash clip, and comfy padded handles.

8. Ombre Cotton Rope Dog Collar, $56

Dedicated to communicating the importance of rescuing animals, the humans at Found My Animal built this collar to last as long as your undying love. It’s hand-dyed with domestic leather and marine-grade rope.

9. Custom Watercolor Dog Portrait, $30–50

Whether they hang it on the living room wall or frame it on their desk, literally no one would be disappointed to receive a portrait of their pup. This artist works with watercolors and is happy to customize–just ask!

10. Goodwalk Non-Pull Harness, $65–99

There’s no need to sacrifice style for practicality. Designed with strong hemp webbing and reliable brass hardware, this harness from See Scout Sleep will get you where you need to go, no matter how hard your pup pulls.

13. Rescued Wine Candles, $28

14. Pooch Selfie: The Original Dog Selfie Stick, $9.99

18. “Best In Show” Collar Charm, $18

Every dog deserves “Best In Show” for something—length of a fetch game, stinkiness of farts, cuddliest of snuggles, you name it. Attach this adorable charm to your key chain or right on your pup’s collar to show ’em the love.

Spend a cozy afternoon with your best friend, a glass of wine, and a dog puzzle. Can you think of a better lazy day? This 1,000-piece jigsaw will help you brush up on your breeds AND your fine motor skills.
