Baths just got a whole lot cuter with these turtle bath bombs! They’re vegan, not tested on animals, and just plain adorable. (And read this blog post to learn some fun facts about turtles!). 

7. WWF symbolic adoption kit 

WWF symbolic adoption kits include a stuffed animal, gift bag, and an adoption certificate! You can pick from a ton of different species like elephants, river otters, and ladybugs. 🐞

Anything related to Jane Goodall will surely touch any animal-lover’s soul. And this pretty quote plaque with Goodall’s wise words is just the perfect reminder that our choices matter. 

10. Make a donation to animal rescue organizations in their name

One of the most thoughtful ways to show an animal-lover you care is to make a donation to an animal rescue organization in their name! If you’re looking for a place to give back, we’re absolutely obsessed with our partners at Rancho Relaxo, The Riley Farm Rescue, Woodstock Sanctuary, and Sale Ranch Sanctuary

Check out this post to learn more about the four animal rescue organizations we support.

11. Wild Armour rhino jewelry

These sparkly handmade rhino earrings are not only gorgeous, but they also support anti-poaching units in Africa (40% of profits are donated to Air Shepherd, which uses drones to stop rhino poaching).

We also love the vegan ring, which donates to The Vegan Society. 

12. How the Animals Around You Think book

How the Animals Around You Think by C.P. Rosenthal

For the friends in our lives who understand that animals are far more thoughtful and aware than they are (often) given credit for, this book by C.P. Rosenthal will give all sorts of validation. Full of thorough research and playful anecdotes of a cat named Cheese, How the Animals Around You Think will make you smile and look at the world a little stranger (in a good way). 

13. Socks that help dogs 

Spread love to pups with your feet! These comfy socks from Conscious Step donate to Best Friends Animal Society to help rescue more dogs. 

14. Manatea Infuser 

Show love to animals, drink more tea! This manatee tea infuser will surely add joy to the tea-sipping, animal-loving friends in our lives. 

15. Playful Pets Puzzle

Sometimes a towel like this one from Paper Source just says it all! And don’t worry, they have a cat version, too!

17. Pangy the Pangolin children’s book

Need a gift for a kiddo with an animal-loving heart? “Pangy the Pangolin” is for you! The children’s book is about a pangolin, the world’s most trafficked animal, learning to embrace the things that make her different from other animals. The best part: 50 percent of the profit goes to the Save Pangolins foundation

18. Custom paw print ring

Does it get any more irresistible than this custom paw print ring?! And seeing as Caitlyn Minimalist has more than 62,000 amazing reviews, we don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
