Creative Pet Gift Wrapping Ideas 

Today my dog Sport and I are very excited to share some creative pet gift wrapping ideas. We made wrapping paper and came up with some very fun ideas for pets to give their families.

Sport and I have been busy getting ready for Christmas. He (we) decided it would be fun to do some Christmas shopping for everyone in the family. And then he (we) decided it would be fun to make some wrapping paper that was obviously from him! Fortunately, Sport agreed that I could share some creative pet gift wrapping ideas with you.

I will be honest that at first, I had what I thought was a brilliant idea.

Sport (I mean me) thought it might be fun to make wrapping paper by putting paint on Sport’s paws and letting him walk all over butcher paper. But I started thinking of what would really happen. I am pretty confident that would consist of Sport running all over our back patio and “forever leaving his footprints” everywhere.

Thank heavens I decided that was a bad idea.

So I bought this adorable dog paw print stamp instead. I got it from Amazon (it costs less than $7) and it can still be delivered before Christmas.

Since I averted one disaster by using a stamp instead of Sport’s paws, I decided to tempt another one by hosting a Facebook Live with Sport and me today! We (hopefully only me) will be making wrapping paper and showing all of the gift ideas he (we) found for everyone in the family. 

I will likely have some fresh chicken in my pocket to bribe him to sit next to me. Wish me luck, because I think this is going to be very interesting. I am guessing he will last on the couch for about one minute.

Join Me and Sport For a Live Video Today

You can watch Sport and me on Facebook Live today at 10:00am PST (12:00 noon CST, 1:00pm EST) here.

I will post the video here once the live broadcast is over.

Look how adorable this wrapping paper turned out. And just so you know, it took me about ten minutes to make a big sheet of wrapping paper.

Which is a good thing since I have teamed up with some amazing bloggers to feature a thirty-minute craft.

Once a month, Janine from Happy Happy Nester, Karianne from Thistlewood Farms, Christina from The DIY Mommy, Jen from Tatertos and Jello, and me, will be sharing a 30 minute craft. Today’s theme is gift wrapping.

All of their beautiful 30-minute ideas are below. Be sure to swipe down to see them.

Imagine that I am the only one that thought of wrapping gifts for pets. Haha.

Sport loves these Plush Toys and he (we) might have ordered a few for him too. 

Of course, it’s a surprise and he doesn’t know it yet.

I can’t wait for you to meet Sport today. He has quite the personality and he (we) is a pretty smart Christmas shopper. Almost all of the gifts he (we) bought are for him, 

Such a smart puppy.

  1. That is so totally cute! I wish I was closer to retirement so I didn’t have to be at work and could watch your lives at 10! 🙂 You and Sport make a great team, and as soon as I get a dog, their footprints are going on some wrapping paper! Hope he sat still for you, and Happy Friday!

  2. Thanks for a great idea!! However, instead of gift wrap (bc we finished wrapping today, phew!) I’m going to take my pug’s paw and press it into dough and make ornaments for the tree, the kitty too! Thanks for ALL of your great ideas and Merry Christmas and may we all have a Happier 2021!!
