With Christmas literally just around the corner, you’re probably wrapping up your Christmas shopping, and you might still have a few people on your list that you just don’t know what to get. You know, those friends that are just difficult to shop for? I recently came across an awesome gift idea for the dog-lovers in your life: BarkBox!
Barkbox is a monthly subscription service for all types of dogs. Although we don’t personally have pets, I have plenty of close friends and family members who adore their dogs. I know how individual this type of gift would be for them, and I’m always looking for a gift that really speaks to a person.
We spent the day out in Hopkinton (the start of the Boston marathon) visiting with old college friends and had so much fun sharing a BarkBox with their dog, Bella (not to mention watching all FOUR of our cute kiddos running around together while reminiscing about the days when it was just the four of us in tiny college apartments).
Here are a few of the reasons why BarkBox makes amazing gifts for dogs:
If you have a small dog, BarkBox will send treats and toys appropriate for that pup. However, if your dog is bigger they’ve got you covered too. I also love that if you dog has allergies or special preferences/needs you can let them know. Plus all of the products are high quality and the toys are designed in-house. As someone who has friends that live both in the city and in the suburbs, I know how different their pet needs are, and this personalization is really important.
If your friend/family member is a dog owner, then their dog is likely one of the very most important parts of their life. Each dog is a family member, and the friendship between dog and parent is strong. I mean, they don’t just say that a dog is man’s best friend for no reason. The special part of this gift is that you’re tapping into something that holds a lot of meaning for your friend, and you’re also providing them something that allows them to really connect with their pup. Each box gives owners time to open it with their doggy and create new memories together as they check out what’s inside.
Each box has a theme
Not only does each box have a theme, but each theme is adorable! For example, A Lick in Wonderland? I mean, how cute is that? Each month you’ll receive two toys, two all-natural bags of treats and a chew that tie directly to that month’s theme. I like the idea of each box having a different premise because it keeps things interesting for the dogs and the humans. Also, since you get a unique box every month, it really allows every delivery to be interesting and engaging. It keeps things fresh throughout the entire year!
You can actually DOUBLE your first box sent when you purchase a gift subscription for only $19 more to upgrade. This includes double toys, treats and chews so that’s FOUR toys, FOUR full-sized bags of treats, and TWO chews. It would be really neat to not only provide your friend with a subscription, but also be able to double their first box. If you are still searching for that perfect gift for the hard-to-shop-for person in your life, then BarkBox is an ideal option. It’s personalized, meaningful and it keeps the gift-giving going all year long. I can’t wait to see the memories my friends make as they experience BarkBox with their pups!
