If you know anyone who lives with a lively, friendly, devoted and entertaining Chihuahua, Chihuahua gifts are a must. While it is easy to pinpoint a perfect gift for this breed (ahem, a chew toy), finding Chihuahua gifts for dog lovers and Chihuahua parents sometimes can feel like a challenge. However, as long as the item is Chihuahua-centric, the gift recipient should be nothing short of ecstatic.
With a spunky pup by their side, Chihuahua pet parents also need decorative items that show off their bold side—and Chihuahua pride! Check out these eight Chihuahua gifts for dog lovers.
1. Chihuahua Coffee Mug
A kiss from your Chihuahua is a great way to wake up, but add a hot cup of coffee and your morning gets even better. Sipping from Dimension 9’s Dog Breed coffee mug will start your day off on the right paw. The durable ceramic coffee mug features a charming Chihuahua image on the front and black paw prints on the top, inner rim. Charming and functional, it holds up to 8 ounces of liquid and is microwave and dishwasher safe.
Chihuahua parents can either bring the mug to work to show off their unbounding love for their canine companions or simply sip and savor from the comfort of home.
2. “It’s Not a Home Without a Chihuahua” Sign
No house is fully a home without a Chihuahua. Parents of the feisty breed can express that fact proudly with Imagine This Company’s “It’s Not a Home Without a Chihuahua” sign.
This Chihuahua gift is both thoughtful and makes a perfect decorative accent. The 10-inch by 5-inch wooden sign has an endearing picture of a Chihuahua and several red paw prints within the quoted saying, and it comes with an attached rope for hanging. It’s both a cute way to express your Chihuahua love and adds flair to any household room.
3. Chihuahua Street Sign
Dog gifts come in all shapes and sizes, and a Chihuahua Court street sign from Imagine That Company tells recipients just where they are located—no GPS required! This authentic-looking, Kelly green decorative street sign is made out of durable plastic and features boldfaced white lettering printed on both sides.
Measuring 18 inches by 6 inches, the sign easily can be hung from the two holes at the far right and far left top corners. This unique Chihuahua gift can be placed in a home’s entryway, on the mailbox or even at the top of the pup’s dog house, so every visitor knows exactly where they’ve arrived, and who owns the street!
4. Chihuahua Figurine
A miniature figurine of your best friend makes the perfect desk accessory, and reminds you who eagerly awaits you at home. Conversation Concepts’ Chihuahua figurine measures 5 inches long by 13 inches high and naturally adds beauty to a room, sparks conversation from friends and commemorates the recipient’s favorite four-legged friend.
5. “101 Uses for a Chihuahua” Book
Chihuahuas are proof that big personalities can come in small frames. “101 Uses for a Chihuahuas,” published by Willow Creek Press, is a humorous book and showcases the many “jobs” Chihuahuas are eager to take on, such as garbage disposal, backseat driver and home security alarm.
With pages full of comical and charming photography of Chihuahuas tackling their many “duties” and self-appointed household roles, this engaging book makes an ideal gift for dog lovers who love seeing their favorite breed exhibit this delightful, amusing behavior.
6. “Chihuahuas for Dummies” Book
Sometimes Chihuahua parents desperately need an owner’s manual on this feisty, energetic toy breed. Luckily, Jacqueline O’Neil, a renowned dog breeder, exhibitor and trainer, wrote “Chihuahuas for Dummies, 2nd Edition,” a comprehensive guide of everything a Chihuahua lover could possibly need to know about these fearless pups. Designed to be an all-inclusive guide to raising a Chihuahua, content includes grooming, training, feeding and healthcare advice for the breed.
In addition to proper Chihuahua care, the book includes essential information you need to know, but may not think to ask—such as how to prevent common behavioral issues, socializing the breed with children and other animals, and fun tricks to teach. This ideal gift delivers the information in a conversational tone and with entertaining anecdotes.
