What to Buy a Loved One After the Death of Their Beloved Dog

death of a dog gift

Just like losing a close family member or friend, losing your dog or any household pet is such a tragic and devastating time. Everyone deals with grief differently, so it’s important to understand whether your loved one needs space and time to themselves to come to terms with their loss or whether they need a shoulder to cry on. Offering your deepest sympathies and putting them at ease is a good place to start.

When we see our closest family and friends upset, it’s a natural reaction to want to make them smile again whether that’s by sharing happy memories or giving them a thoughtful gift.

Knowing what to buy someone after the loss of a pet is a hard decision, however, if you’re looking for a death of a dog gift that’s personal and thoughtful, you’ve come to the right place.

Read on to discover Yappy’s lovingly selected gifts to give your loved one after the death of their dog. We sincerely hope they help provide some solace during this upsetting time.

Give the Gift of Comfort

Time can be the biggest healer, so just know that the grief your loved one is experiencing will get easier for them to manage in time. However, offering them any form of comfort once you’ve heard the news about the death of their beloved dog is a kind gesture which we’re sure they’ll appreciate.

Dealing with grief is not only emotionally overwhelming but completely exhausting. During this time, your loved one may just appreciate having their own space – so why not try and make that space as comfy as possible with a cozy blanket?

When it comes to choosing a gift for a loved one after the death of a dog, a luxuriously soft blanket can offer them some much-needed comfort.

With photo upload gift options available, you can customize your blanket with their favorite photo as a precious memory of their pooch. We also have a range of blankets that lovingly feature their dog’s name or Yappy icon as a more subtle reminder.

If you’re searching for more ways to encourage your loved one to unwind and relax, then a personalized pillow makes a beautiful gift. Your loved one will be able to cuddle their new pillow and always remember the special pooch who left paw prints on their heart (and muddy paw prints on the couch).

And, to offer your loved one further comfort, a personalized mug is a touching way for them to enjoy a soothing hot drink and raise a toast to their beloved pup.

Moments to Cherish Furever

A personalized photo-upload gift is a thoughtful way to show a loved one that you’re thinking of them during difficult times.

If you’re looking for a small way to make a kind-hearted gesture then a customized keychain is a wonderful choice, carefully designed to accompany your loved one wherever they go.

We know that choosing a death of a dog gift is not a decision to be taken lightly. If you’re struggling to find the right words to say during this sensitive time, then why not put pen to paper with one of our thinking of you cards? Sending a sympathy dog card will allow you to share your love and thoughts.
