  1. Awww!   I LOVE the tote bag!  I collect totes so that was neat!  That said, I’d have my cat on there, though.  The necklace was gorgeous too!  Plus the socks.  Those I could totally see getting my mother these items in her breed.  My aunt who has a Golden Retriever isn’t into cutesy stuff though, so I’ll have to give it some thought.  Maybe the necklace as that is definitely pretty.  

    Golden Retrievers are such an awesome breed.  My mother would have loved one if her landlord didn’t have a size restriction.  The shirt with the tricks was hilarious.  I didn’t realize Etsy would have so many neat gift ideas there.  Thanks for the ideas!

    1. Hi Selenity Jade,

      I am glad you enjoyed my gift ideas.  The tote bag is great, I am sure you could find one on Etsy with a cat instead of a dog.  Etsy is really great for having unique items, everything is handmade.  

      Thanks for stopping by.


  2. This is a really amazing post, the truth must be told. I don’t have a golden retriever and I have never owned one before, but I have heard a lot of stories from friends on how interesting they could be too watch. They always create amazing moments with humans and this is a really amazing thing I love about dogs. I also love all the nice dog gifts you posted… I would like to have the necklace and socks… Kudos for a great post.

    1. Hi Willy,

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.  I am completely biased and must say that you are totally missing out by not owning a Golden Retriever!  Lol.  They are the best, just ask anyone that owns one!  

      I am glad you enjoyed this post, the necklace and socks are great gifts!

      Thanks for stopping by.


  3. What a fabulous article.  Golden Retrievers are my absolute favourite dogs.  They always look so incredibly happy.  My sister has one called Honey, and I think that you have given me great Christmas present ideas.  I love the rolling pin (she is always baking cookies for her grandchildren),  and the Don’t stop Retrievin’ sweatshirt.  All of the ideas are completely unique.  I absolutely love it!

    1. Hi, Love Yourself,

      I love the name Honey for a Golden Retriever, so cute.  I am sure your sister will love the rolling pin, it is really unique.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.


  4. Hi,

    Great article about gifts for Golden Retriever owners. My next-door neighbour has one Golden Retriever. She really loves her. My neighbour’s birthday is next month, so I was thinking about what to give her. But after reading your gift idea, I think it will be the best decision if I give her any one of those gifts from your recommended gift list. I know she will be very happy when she will see this. Thanks a lot for your wonderful article.

    1. Hi Nazmun,

      I am sure your neighbour will appreciate any of the gifts listed here.  These items are definitely unique, and you will come across as a very thoughtful person.

      Thanks for stopping by.


  5. Wow! The sneakers are what I found to be really out of this world. I never knew sneakers could be used as a gift for golden retriever owners. I am really looking forward to buying some of these to gift to my daughter. She owns a golden retriever and this would be the ideal gift for her. Thanks for your suggestions.

    1. Hi Shelley,

      The sneakers are really cool, aren’t they?  I have never seen anything like them before.  They are simply great for Golden Retriever owners because of all the walking we do, and not to mention we love anything that displays our favourite breed!

      I hope your daughter will enjoy them.

      Thanks for stopping by.


  6. Wow! Thank you for writing such a specialized article for gifts for people with golden retrievers. That’s exactly what I was looking for. I really like the golden retriever shoes. I think the shirt is a really cool play on words and I like how the person’s hair actually matches the golden colouring on the shirt to some extent. 

    The stubborn tricks are really funny too! Especially when it says stay and then that’s the only one with an empty box LOL. I also like the necklace and socks. Those would be my first picks. 

    I will make sure everyone I know who knows someone with a golden retriever can get to your page for gifts this year! Some of these gifts are even good for people who might not have a golden retriever because they are just nice things.

    1. Hi C,

      Thanks for checking out this list of gifts!  I enjoyed picking them out but had a hard time just picking 12 unique items, as there are so many great gifts found on Etsy.

      Alot of these items can be customized to fit any dog breed, not just Golden Retrievers.  The customized socks can be a photo of anything you want, it doesn’t have to be your dog, it can be your cat or yourself.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
