Send Someone's K9 to Cloud 9

Looking for some inspiration when it comes to finding a great gift for a dog owner? Just about any friend or family member who owns a dog will appreciate a gift certificate to a local dog groomer!

A dog grooming gift certificate is guaranteed to be a much-appreciated present on a day when the gift recipient is in need of a bath and brushing. This is especially the case during tough economic times when many pet owners bite the bullet and groom their dog at home to save money. A gift certificate to a local dog groomer will provide a nice break for the dog owner, who can spend the afternoon partaking in an enjoyable activity, rather than wrestling with a wet, shampoo-covered dog in the bathtub.

Does Someone Have a Green Thumb? Surprise Them with a Gathering of Garden Supplies

Tools are always a great idea for anyone with a green thumb. If you have new homeowners on your gift-giving list, consider buying them some larger tools, such as a shovel, digging fork, rake or even larger items such as a wheelbarrow or patio set. Don't forget about those handy accessories, from kneeling pads, to watering cans and wands, pruning saws and pruning snips -- there's a wide variety of tools and accessories for every budget.

You can make up your own gardening gift basket by filling a decorative pot with gardening gloves, small tools, fertilizer, twine and other smaller items.

In the new year, many gardeners will want to get a head start on spring by starting seeds and cuttings indoors. Gifts of seed trays/inserts, soil, peat pellets, plant starter fertilizer and rooting hormone will help give them a jump start. While gardening does require warmer temperatures, winter is also the perfect time to settle in with a gardening book full of possibilities and dream of spring projects.

For the gardener who seems to have all the tools and plants they would ever need, look for an interesting piece of garden art that you feel would appeal to them. Garden signs, stepping stones, benches, lanterns, bistro and patio sets all help to make an outdoor living space unique and interesting.

Decorate Someone's Home with a Work of Art

The best kind of gift is personal, unique and of course a surprise! Purchasing fine art as a gift doesn't have to break the bank. Most of the time you can pick up a masterpiece very inexpensively if you do some research. Artwork makes a great gift, especially a commissioned original, because it is unique, personal and lasts several lifetimes.

A painting also makes the perfect corporate gift to celebrate and commemorate those special events, such as anniversaries, birthdays, retirements, loyalty and corporate hospitality.

Cycling Equipment for the Outdoor Enthusiast

If you want it to be a surprise then get as much information about the type of cycling they do, a preferred brand of cycling equipment they use or just generally snoop around to get this information without them knowing. Take this information to a local sports or cycle shop and ask the people there for their advice.

Are they mountain bikers or road cyclists? Do they passionately cycle for hours or just go out to blow off some steam and have fun? Maybe they only use their bicycle to commute. Knowing this will help find a more personalized gift.
