Secret about the Good Flea – I’m a tote bag addict. Soap you knew. This you did not. So when I came across (thank you, Kimberly!) a start up company, ToteTails, which makes custom dog themed tote bags, and was looking for bloggers willing to write reviews, I was all SIGN ME UP. And this one is one of the best gift ideas I’ve seen for pet lovers in awhile.
First, ToteTails offers a huge variety of breeds to choose from. You can choose a Cocker Spaniel, for instance, and that silhouette is part of the flat rate in ordering, with a name or saying on the bag. I just went to the Cocker Spaniel page and chose the option for one pet name, a paw print in black, the eye and highlights on the silhouette, and the extras were just a buck. Try it. Go choose a dog silhouette, add and choose all the extras you want, see what happens.
The staff at ToteTails is a dream to work with. When you’re looking for gift ideas for dog people, the last thing you want is a difficult customer service experience, right? Not happening here. Emails flew back and forth. Proofs were sent. Questions were asked by both parties. Service was speedy. And then I had the cutest dog tote bag ever, right in my hot little paws.
The custom graphic option, which I chose, costs more, but it would have been worth the extra for me. It’s a single bag, not mass produced. I’m the only person with a bag like it. And it’s Rocky, the Jones Natural Chews mascot. I can take it everywhere, full of treats, and represent Jones. They did a fine job of rendering the highlights in the dog, when the image I sent them was this:
I didn’t ask for paw prints. It’s just not my thing. I was pleased as punch to see Rocky on the bag and that was enough. The bag itself is a nice quality unbleached canvas. It’ll probably last forever, just going to dog treat photoshoots with me, full of Jones chews. I like that it’s a natural look, since we’re an all natural treat company. And everyone at Jones will be jealous when I show up there next month carrying the best dog tote ever. I’m not smug. Nope.
I hope this helps you choose an amazing gift for the dog lover in your life. Especially if that’s you. 😉 The graphic artists at ToteTails work directly with you to customize your design. You’ll love their bags. Well, I love my bag. I might even fill it with soap. Wouldn’t that be a dream come true?
Now go give your dog a Jones Natural Chew and watch it smile. Naturally.
Until I write again …
