It’s almost the end of 2017 and like some of you, am late in the gift buying trek. Just been too busy with a new Shiba Inu puppy and trying to keep the other adult Shiba pleased.
Choosing gifts for friends and relatives can be both fun and stressful. It’s exciting to see if you can find that perfect gift that really proves you went the extra mile. However, finding said perfect gift is easier said than done.
Since my blog is all about Shiba Inus, and since a lot of my friends have Shiba Inus, it’d be of course fitting to center their gifts around Shiba Inus. For some of my closer friends, it has been tradition and now expected, to exchange gifts for both human friends and Shiba friends.
Despite their off-the-charts cuteness, finding Shiba Inu themed gifts - unless you live in Japan - is rather difficult.
So we buckled down and did our best scouring to find the perfect gifts for your Shiba Inu loving friends, and their beloved Shiba Inus.
This year, we even organized the gifts into categories for easier searching. Have fun!
When Cuteness Reigns Supreme
When it comes to "kawaii" - "cuteness" in Japanese - nothing represents it more than cutesy Shiba Inu merchandise.
However, unless you live in Tokyo, finding Kawaii Shiba Inu merchandise can be a bit challenging.
We did some legwork and found some Kawaii Shiba Inu products that can be easily purchased in the United States.
Shiba Inu Plushies
One of the most popular sites for Japanese anime, manga, and plushie merchandise is TOM, or Tokyo Otaku Mode.
TOM has a large selection of Shiba Inu plushies at a very reasonable price - even with shipping costs. Their website is modern, advanced, and easy to browse through.

Dog Slippers - Shiba Inu Slipper Home Indoor Plush Slipper Shoes - BuryTony
These Kawaii Shiba Inu Plushy "slipper" is probably more cute than practical.
However, going along with the saying, "if the shoe fits, wear it" - who can resist such Shiba Inu shoe cuteness?
This is a one-size fit all shoes, so it will fit up to a women's size 8.5.

Uniqme Shiba Inu Plushie Doll
This plump and plushie Shiba Inu doll is perfect for cuddling - especially if you have "real" Shiba Inus that are not fond of snuggles.
This Shiba Inu plushie is about 21 inches long and can also be used as a comfy pillow. The fabric is soft and the plushie itself is well contructed.

Kawaii Shiba Inu Keychain / Key Cover
These adorable Shiba Inu key covers will fit most standard size house keys - up to one inch in width. However, be sure to measure your keys before ordering.
My only complaint with these Shiba Inu key covers is that they only come in one color. These are so cute that it's hard to buy just one!

Cute Shiba Inu Micro Fleece Soft Blanket Throw Blanket
This Shiba Inu Micro Fleece blanket is perfect for both humans and pups to stay warm and comfy.
This Shiba Inu blanket is quite large, measuring in at 78" by 59".

Cotton Shiba Inu Faces Boat Socks Low Cut Socks
These Shiba Inu "Doge" socks scream fashion in every way. However, take note that these very low cut socks may be more "cute" than practical.
These Doge socks are quite thin but may work well for times when thin, low cut socks are needed!

Dog Meme Socks
These Doge meme socks may not be what traditionalists call "fashionable."

[Gifts For The Shiba Inu Loving Clean Freak]
When Cleanliness Is Top Dog...
We all have that friend that enjoys cleaning and organizing a bit too much. Maybe, some of us are that way ourselves. I do admit to having the occasional o.c.d. Episodes myself.
Being a clean freak and having a Shiba Inu, or Shiba Inus, will present that person with some “challenges.”
Why not help their 2018 get off to a clean start with the following gift ideas:
Dog Gone Smart Large Dirty Dog Doormat
The Dog Gone Smart Dirty Dog Doormat is one of the most absorbent doormats on the market today.
With a GSM absorption rate of 3000, this doormat easily absorbs double or even triple the amount of fluid from other similar doormats. It’s fast drying as well as machine washable.
This doormat is versatile and can be used as a floor mat in the bathroom when giving your Shiba Inu a bath or even in their crate area.
This would be the perfect gift for the Shiba Inu owner that appreciates a clean and dry living area. The cute paw design seals the deal - making this gift cute as well as practical.
