Phew! It's almost the end of 2018..... already!!

The year of the dog, well has been an year of the dog - both literally and figuratively.

It's time to "wrap" this year up and get ready for 2019. 

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.
