Gifts For The Shih Tzu Lover In Your Life!

Shih Tzu’s are the best dogs on the planet! There you go, I said it! Man, I’ve been writing about dogs since 2007, and have had Shih Tzu’s in my life for much longer than that – I just can’t tell you how liberated I feel for letting my Shih Tzu freak fly free! I love this breed. They are silly and sweet, adoring with just the right touch of independence. I’m sure you know a Shih Tzu lover or two, and that’s why we compiled a listing of the nine best gifts for the Shih Tzu lover in your life!

Today’s Picks: Gifts for the Shih Tzu Lover in Your Life!

We are those people. You know, the ones with themed items strewn about their house, and adorning their bodies. We have Shih Tzu salt and pepper shakers, Christmas ornaments, Valentine’s Day trinkets, t-shirts, socks, earrings, art, cutting board, hand towels, napkin holders, and even a shower curtain. We fight the urge to have them out for use all at the same time. Although, I am thinking about doing it one day, just to see if anyone in the house notices.

Keeping an eye out for unique Shih Tzu items for ourselves as well as our friends is a part-time job. With all of our research work, why would we keep all this goodness to ourselves? No reason, we were just trying not to be those people! Now that our secret is out, we knew you’d appreciate these gifts for the Shih Tzu lover in your life!

Here’s a cool, click to buy, Pinable, infographic that highlights some of our favorite (as of today) Shih Tzu items found on Etsy. If you love what you see, just click and you’ll be shopping from the comfort of your sofa.

  11. Rebecca, you’re so passionate about dogs. I grew up with dogs, their behaviors inform metaphors that I use, yet I do not own any dogs of my own. My brother is the dog lover now. You mentioned that you’ve been writing about dogs since 2007, I know the Shih Tzu is your favorite but what other kind of dogs have you written about?

    Reply
    • Hi Ingrid – we write about all different types of dogs, but we have Shih Tzus and a Chihuahua in our household! Thanks for stopping by!

  12. A colleague I used to have waaaaay back in the day had the cutest Shih-tzu… she used to beg for treats all the time in the office (the pup – not my friend haha!)

    Reply
    • I bet they both begged for treats! 🙂 In all truth, Shih Tzus make great little beggars – they aren’t aggressive, they just get cuter when you deny them for a little while! I’m a sucker, I admit it!

  13. just adorable! planning to get a whoodle this year so this is really helpful!

    Reply
    • How fun – a new pup in the house always makes for great adventures!

  14. I miss having a little dog. Mine passed last year. These are all things I would get if he was still here.

    Reply
    • I am so sorry for your loss. Haven traveled this path numerous times, I completely understand how things just get you at times you weren’t expecting them. I hope you feel joy when you think of all of the good memories.

      Reply
    • Some day! Course that’s from me, a total Shih Tzu lover, always trying to get people to adopt a Shih Tzu! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Omg I love this so much haha. I’ve never had a Shih Tzu, but I don’t know where’d I’d be in this world without dogs. Truly man’s best friend. Side note, that Shih Tzu print is adorable 🙂

    Reply
    • Dogs most certainly are best friends – we’ve had dogs nearly our entire marriage, about 20 years now, and that time has been filled with wonderful, hilarity created by our doggos!

  17. These are such adorable gifts. Shih Tzu’s are wonderful dogs. My sister had one that passed away last year (RIP Tillie ) and she was the sweetest, happiest dog! My sister is planning to get another one, and her I’ll keep these gifts in mind for her!

  18. Shih Tzu’s are so adorable. They are my favorite small breed dog. They have so much personality.

  19. Shih-tzu’s are a very cute breed of dog. But I really like this one cross breed with Shih tzu’s called Zuchons. Those are awesome. But I really think all of these gifts are very cute.

    Reply
  20. I think Shih Tzu are so cute. I would get 3 & 9 if I had one.
