If you’re like me, then your pet is a part of your family. And as such you probably spoil him or her a lot more than yourself. So not only have I created a simple recipe for making a DIY dog paw balm to pamper your pooch, but I also found some pretty sweet pet care products from UncommonGoods that my dog and I can both enjoy! In particular, I’m crushing on this dog bowl water bottle that’s perfect for long walks and hikes. (Hello, Fall!)

In addition to the great gift ideas for pets (and pet owners) UncommonGoods also has great gift ideas for co-workersunique housewarming gifts and fun home accessories for customizing your favorite spaces.
