‘Tis the season to go gift shopping! If you’re looking for fun, memorable presents for the special people in your life, try to think outside of the box this year. Here are just a few rare and unusual Pug Christmas gifts to get you started.
The great thing about Pug-opoly is that you can unwrap it on Christmas morning and start playing immediately. It has the same rules as the classic version of Monopoly, so nothing is unfamiliar; it has just been given a furry makeover. You’ll wield “Good Dog” and “Bad Dog” cards as you navigate a board filled with toys, treats, and bones. Just make sure to avoid the kennel!
2. Black Pug Crossbody Bag
Would they appreciate a gift that lets them carry their love of Pugs everywhere they go? It’s possible with this crossbody bag. The bag is shaped like the head of a Pug, and for extra comedy, it has wide, googly-style eyes as well as 3D fabric flaps for its ears. Anyone who has been woken up at 3 AM by their doggo will recognize this face. It makes for a fun bag and an even more fun present.
3. Pug Notebook or Journal
Gorgeously crafted, this notebook puts other notebooks to shame. It offers a black, faux-leather hardcover with an embossed Pug print in the corner, and its white pages come with everything from an attached fabric bookmark to a banded enclosure that will hold everything in place on the go. It’ll be a stylish and sophisticated writing tool for work or any other purpose.
4. Black Pug Angel Tree Topper
This tree topper lives up to its name by being a hilarious conversation starter. You see, it isn’t an ordinary angel; it’s a Pug in a white robe with golden wings! It’s so ugly-cute that your gift recipient will instantly fall in love. For the best results, give it to them a few weeks before Christmas so that they can get full mileage out of this amazing holiday decoration.
5. Personal Stalker Pug Dog Shirt
Novelty t-shirts are a dime a dozen, but this one is so unique that it really stands out from the crowd. It features a jailhouse Pug holding up a mugshot sign with paw prints rather than its name, and its crime is described thusly: “Personal stalker. I will follow you wherever you go, bathroom included.” Pug owners will definitely be able to relate.
6. Bah Hum-Pug Christmas Gift Tags
Even the Scrooge in your life deserves Christmas presents, so wrap up these gift tags to bring a little holiday spirit into their life. They come in a pack of 12, and each one is printed with a Pug in reindeer antlers saying “Bah Hum-Pug.” The pooch is visibly unimpressed with its costume, which just makes it even funnier. Maybe your Scrooge can relate!
7. Pug Buddha Garden Art Statue
Help them find their inner zen with a “Pug Buddha” statue. It bears the face of their favorite breed, but the funny, big-bellied body is all Buddha. They can stick it in their home, office, garden, and more; since it’s made from concrete, it’s suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments. Tell them to rub the belly for good luck.
8. Pug Popper Ball-Shooting Toy
Do they have a Pug of their own? If so, their little gremlin will probably enjoy this ball-shooting toy. It can launch foam tennis balls up to 20 feet, but it doesn’t have any special gears or mechanisms; it’s a simple squeeze shooter, so even kids can use it to initiate some outdoor playtime with their pooch. Did I mention that it’s shaped like a Pug as well? The balls pop out of its mouth.
9. Night Before Christmas Pug T-Shirt
If their holiday traditions include an annual viewing of The Night Before Christmas, you’ve just found the perfect gift for them. It’s a t-shirt featuring the iconic curly cliff from the movie, but instead of Jack Skellington on top, there’s a small but mighty Pug. It’ll be a fun and unique tee that they can wear from Halloween to Christmas and beyond.
10. Hug The Pug Throw Pillow Cover
“When all else fails, hug the pug.” These words of wisdom can provide comfort on even the coldest and darkest of winter nights, so put them on a throw pillow cover to offer some love to a friend or family member. In addition to its message, it also offers a soft cotton linen material and a durable, invisible-zipper design to ensure longevity.
11. Pug Sticking Out Tongue Premium Gift Wrap
Last but certainly not least, if they’re an avid gift-giver themselves, they’re sure to get some use out of this wrapping paper. It has a fun, colorful pattern of bubble Pugs sticking their tongues out, and it’s made from premium heavyweight paper cut into a 30 x 72-inch roll. It’ll be perfect for any belated Christmas presents as well as future birthdays and holidays.
These are just a few Pug Christmas gifts that you won’t see on the shelves of your local department store. Some are handmade; others are simply rare and unique. If you want to do something special this holiday season, get an uncommon Pug gift.
