Posted

When you’re making a list and checking it twice, don’t leave out the furry friends in your life! We’re spotlighting shops across Rhode Island that make it easy when it comes to spoiling your pets, and for finding fun accessories for animal-lovers.

FROG & TOAD - EAST

Cut a dashing figure in a monochrome dog print sweatshirt or cat motif shirtdress, and then cut a pizza with a black cat slicer wheel! Also for the kitchen, find a smiling kitty sake set and scratch-free cat-shaped scrubbing sponges. Providence, FrogAndToadStore.com

GROUNDSWELL

Matte black cast iron dog statuettes make striking doorstops or bookshelf adornments from the Garden + Home store, while real life dogs will lap up Wag Butter in pumpkin spice and banana flax flavors from the Table + Provisions shop. Tiverton, GroundswellCafeGarden.com

IMAGINE GIFT STORE

Equally appealing for dogs and owners are silky Dog-Dana bandanas featuring a pastel-hued rendition of a Rhode Island map. Shop cat or dog cookie cutters and ice cube trays to make the holidays furrier, along with a selection of life-like plush toys in all the fluffiest breeds. Warren, GiftImagine.com

INDIGO ELEPHANT

Resident Spaniel Eloise models hand-knitted, Peruvian dog sweaters from this South County staple, which also carries coastal shampoo and cologne scent for pups – a spot-on choice for Rhody rovers! Westerly, Facebook: Indigo Elephant

KENT STETSON

Stetson’s Pet Collection features conversation-starter clutches with over 40 dog and cat designs, from Dachshunds accessorized with diamanté bone bling to Tabbies with jingling bell collars! Pawtucket, KentStetson.com

THE PURPLE COW

Locals will love this mainstay’s Black Lab at the Narragansett Towers artwork on puzzles, mugs, and portable coffee cups celebrating South County. Stuff your stockings with crazy cat lady action figures, pug toys, feline sleep masks, and more. Wakefield, ThePurpleCowCo.net

SERENDIPITY

“Welcome! No need to knock, we know you’re here - The Dogs” is just one of the hilarious handmade-in-Rhode-Island signs available at Wickford Village’s beloved gift boutique. Another favorite: wine glasses etched with “It’s not drinking alone if the dog’s home.” Wickford, SerendipityRI.com

WALD & SEA 

It’s good to see our feline friends getting equal opportunities with Attenti Al Gatto (Beware of the Cat) ceramic tiles, as well as the canine equivalent. All are sourced from Italy by stylish owner Kim Wald. Newport, WaldAndSea.com
