Shih Tzu Gifts and Collectible Ideas
For the Shih Tzu Lover

Shih Tzu Gifts for Everyone on Your List

by Janice Jones     |Last Updated 05-10-2021

Maybe a Shih Tzu Gift might be the perfect idea for someone close to you either for a holiday celebration or just to say, Thinking of You.  If you are like me, though, I have to admit that I can’t often wait for someone to give me one of these special mementos so I go searching them out on my own.

For anyone who has fallen in love with this breed, finding a Shih Tzu Gift Treasure can feel like a kid in a candy store.  Since the breed is popular, there is no shortage of ideas, so whether it is for you, the Shih Tzu lover or for someone you know how adores the breed, I have tried to assemble some cute and clever items that any Tzu lover would be pleased to own.

These collections are not in any special order of importance, but remember if you are shopping for a friend or loved one, take into consideration the hair color of their Shih Tzu. 

People are very partial to certain colors, especially if they match their current dog. 

Shih Tzu Gifts

Shih Tzu Jewelry

Jewelry always make a nice little gift for someone who loves the breed.  Most are inexpensive and any Tzu lover will be proud to wear a piece that shows the world just how much they love their dog.

Shih Tzu Gifts For the Home, Car and Office

There are probably more items available in this catch-all category than any other.  Whether you’re looking for a gift for a co-worker, a favorite niece, or shopping for yourself.  Items in this category add a touch of whimsy to the décor, be it in your home or your office and always have the tendency to break the ice. 

Statues, figurines, curios, collectibles, whatever you prefer to call them, my mother always had cabinets full of what she called knick-knacks.  Whether it was birds, or dogs, angels, or cute little kids, she collected and proudly displayed her treasures in prominent places throughout her home.  if you are a collector, now is a great time to start a Shih Tzu collection.  Most are true to the colors of the Tzu and so many of them are so well painted that they look almost life-like.

Home, Car, Office

Christmas Tree Ornaments

This is an easy “no-brainer” for someone on your list and the price is perfect for a stocking stuffer, a teacher gift, or your favorite groomer.  While you’re looking for a friend, sneak one in for yourself too.  If unsure about what color to get, ask your Tzu lovin’ friend what color her dog is.  That way you can’t go wrong.

Do You Send Christmas Cards?

Even within our digital world, a physical Christmas card is so appreciated and if you love dogs, the best way to let everyone know is to send out cards that tell the world that you think canine campanions are just the best!.  Over 2 billion Christmas cards are sent in the US each year and at least 2 billion dollars are spent in the U.S. on sending Christmas cards even when we have alternatives such as e-cards, e-mail, and texting to convey our holiday wishes.  Hallmark, a leader in the card industry celebrated their 100th birthday in 2015. 

Note Cards and Stationary

Shih Tzu Gifts for the Great Outdoors 

While delivering a puppy to someone, I happened upon a ceramics store with a hefty 25 pound cement Shih Tzu staring me in the window.  It wasn’t long before I had purchased that “little” one along with all the paint and brushes I needed to bring it home and bring it to life.  If you have someone who loves the breed, don’t forget that garden decorations is just as big as indoor décor.

D.I.Y. Arts and Crafts

Love needlework?  Scrapbooking?  Jewelry making?  All the rest?  There is plenty to love if you want to make a counted cross stitch Shih Tzu or a needlepoint Tzu.  Check out these options.

Ever thought about hanging a hand painted piece of art?  Here are a few Shih Tzu art prints done by various artists.

Perfect Shih Tzu Gifts for that Special Tzu in our Lives

Now that you have everyone on your list covered, it's time to think about your fur baby.  She or he needs something new too.  

There are so many options like toys, and chews, and clever beds, and clothes, and ...  that I had to add another page.

Here is just a sneak peak of the different types of toys that Shih Tzu dogs particularly prize.
