There’s maybe one person you trust more with your pet than yourself – nope, it’s not the veterinarian (too many immunization shots, ouch) It’s your dog groomer. Who else can quell that crazy, stinky beast when he needs a bath and a cut more than ever? What better way to say thanks than with a small gift this holiday season. This list features a wide variety of gifts and prices, so you’re sure to find something perfect for dog groomers.
One of my favorite things about my dog groomer is her office. It is decked head to toe in years of gifts that grateful clients have given her. And yes, they are ALL dog-themed. This clock would make a perfect compliment to all her paraphernalia. Now that I think of it, I’m pretty sure the only thing she’s missing is a clock!
Tis’ the season to be grateful, and what better way to show it than with this decorative ornament for your favorite groomer? It’s shaped like a snowflake, but the catch? It’s made from scissors! It’s complemented with a gemstone center and would look perfect on or off a tree. Don’t be naughty this year, make sure to show your gratitude with this funky holiday gift.
You know that one cafe in your town that has funny signs, like “unattended children will be given coffee”, and stuff like that? If your groomer has a sense of humor (and I’m sure they do), they’ll love this hilarious sign that reads dogs welcome, people tolerated. Honestly, with this political climate, I’m tempted to buy two – one for my dog groomer and the other to hang around my neck.
I’m going to be honest, chihuahuas are gross. But, many, many people love them. These colorful earrings are made in the style of Mexican street art – vibrant, playful and wearable with just about anything. They come in a variety of styles and are made from stainless steel, so they won’t break the bank.
I have two dogs and both of them are little babies. I mean, infants. They are so scared of any sound – skateboarders going by, a big oil truck backing up, or me singing Fiona Apple in the shower (ok, that last one is pretty scary). This set of sheers are specifically made for dogs, and the best part? They are virtually soundless. Perfect for those scaredy-cat dogs we all know and love.
Want to make a bet? Your groomer enjoys at least one good glass of wine a night. This gift will secretly nod to their nightly ritual while putting a smile on their face. It is a metal wine bottle holder – the feet hold the bottle in place and the head acts as a topper if you don’t manage to finish the whole thing in one night. There’s even a little collar that loops over the neck of the bottle. It’s cute, and could hold other, non-alcoholic things…I guess.
Every profession has a secret slogan. Teachers? Keep calm and drink as much as possible. Just kidding. That one’s for doctors. This delightful t-shirt has a slogan i’ve actually never heard, which is amazing because I’m a writer. It reads, It’s not dog hair, it’s canine-confetti. A nice play on words sure to make that special groomer laugh. Also, the next time my boss complains that I am covered in dog hair, I know exactly what I’m going to say.
Is your dog groomer vaguely religious? Do they enjoy big eye paintings and cherished moments figurines? Then look no further, friend. Here is a sculpture depicting an angel cuddling a dog. You may ask yourself, whose lost, the angel or the dog in this scenario? Or maybe my mom was wrong when she told me dogs don’t go to heaven. Either way, this is a perplexing gift that I’m sure will make many a groomer ask themselves many deep questions.
Ok I know it’s gross but honestly what is cuter than a little dog butt? – tail a-swingin, feet a-clopmin’ – a dog’s butt is a universal symbol of happiness. Ok, maybe it’s not a universally recognized symbol, but whatever. This set of cast iron hooks may be made to hold your keys, necklaces and bags, but their secret purpose is to make you laugh every time you walk out the door. I’m definitely picking two up – one for me and one for my groomer dog grooming salon.
10. Cherub with Dog
This figurine is of an angel holding a dog – so I guess this is a thing now. The angel is of the cherub fashion, and the dog it is holding is nondescript, but looks pretty cute. It would look great in a little garden or in a potted plant to spruce up the office. This also comes pre wrapped in a beautiful gift box, so it takes the preparation out of at least one gift this holiday season.
It’s another funny T-shirt! Talk about hitting the nail on the head. Get this grooming T-shirt for your dog groomer. If nothing else, it will put them in their place and remind them who they really are in this great big world of ours. It’s blue with grey typeface, so it would be fine for any and all genders.
This cute tote bag shows a groomer in their natural habitat – trying to calm down an animal. It’s funny because it’s true. This would be a great gift, and your groomer can throw all the things they need into it – brush, clippers, leash and most importantly, some treats. Or you could fill it with something fun, like a framed picture or their favorite food. This is a nice gift because it’s easy to personalize.
Not going to lie – this microdermabrasion pet blow dryer looks nice. Like, nice enough for me to use. Actually, way nicer than my own blow dryer…wait a minute. Featuring two different air speeds, hot and cold air and a variety of different nozzles, this set is a steal for the price. Mh only worry is you’ll get this for your groomer and realize you’ll want to keep it for yourself.
AHHHH! This gift is so cute and original I can’t stand it. Everyone loves their animals, but we also love ourselves, so why not immortalize our bonds and get a cartoon portrait done? The artist uses a style very similar to that of the animated series The Simpsons, and the effect is familial and comforting. This would make a great, cheap gift that your groomer will put on their wall with pride.
Jensen Pierro’s Snowbabies Classic Collection features hand-knit adornments and traditional winter scenes. This particular figurine showcases a Snowbaby and pup going for a walk on an icy winter’s day. You can almost imagine the frost in the air, the smell of the freshly fallen snow, or the toasty warm cup of hot chocolate that is waiting for both of them just inside’s Grandma’s kitchen. They are all handcrafted from high-quality bisque porcelain with hand-painted accents, so you can be sure this is a classy gift to give this year.
I actually had a co-worker with this very mug. I envied it because she wasn’t a dog groomer, we didn’t work with animals and the randomness of it made it cool. It appears black, but when you add your coffee (or any hot liquid) the photo slowly appears. It would make for a cute gift – you could even keep the image as a surprise and let dog groomer think you just weirdly gave them a plain black mug.
The original SleekEZ has made a name for itself as one of the easiest and best dog or cat grooming tools out there. They come in variety of sizes and are easy to hold. The design is nice, too – the handle is made from a natural wood and is shaped to comfortably fit the hand. I guess the most important thing is that they work really well. Your groomer would be happy to receive one of these babies, it would make their job a little bit easier.
The second clock featured on this list is a bit, shall we say, groovier? It looks like it’s made from an old vinyl record (for those millenials out there, that was like a big, grooved CD that we scratched to make music – I know, crazy). I think it would fit nicely with a lot of different personality styles and in different settings – an office, the bathroom or in a waiting room. As an added bonus, this is actually made from recycled material, so you don’t have to feel extra guilty about adding to the plastic island this year.
This is a great looking business card holder for the dog lover. This card holder is an eye-catching, wooden design that’s sure to make dog groomer look a bit more professional. The dog bone shaped holder holds about 50 standard size business cards. It is made from cherry hardwood, and is quite handsome. The company says because it’s a natural product, each holder is bound to be slightly different – that adds to the uniqueness of this gift. It’s casual and thoughtful, a great gift if you’re not sure what to get.
Ok, this bag looks professional. It’s got pockets for just about every tool your groomer has (and we know, they have a lot) AND it looks soft and fluffy to boot. It comes in a couple different colors and has a hang-open feature which allows you to easily grab certain things when your hands are tied. It has a nice shoulder strap too, so you could take it on the go with you whenever, wherever.
These are nice, sterling silver matching earrings for that special groomer out there who deserves an extra delicious gift this holiday season. They show little labrador retrievers, and the effect when you are wearing them is that they are facing each other. It’s adorable. They come in a nice box, too, so you can grab it right from the mail and be ready to give it at your next appointment.
22. Funny Mug
Another kitschy, albeit cute mug for the list. This one says “You know what I like about people – their dogs!” and honestly, me too, mug, me too. This year has been extra, and I’m at the point where I’d prefer to socially interact at the dog park than at my neighbor’s party. Dogs are just so chill and nice, you know? Why can’t we be more like that?
For the last on the list, a very thoughtful, unique gift for your dog groomer. A hand painted black and white “busy” sign for them to hang when they are with a client. It adds an air of professionalism to their job, but it is also hand crafted and chic, which doesn’t make it too stuffy seeming. They are available in a variety of different colors, but I think the classic black and white would be the perfect gift for just about any groomer.
