22 Alternative Pet Gifts

From Guinea Pig Costumes to Pet Rabbit Subscription Services

— December 23, 2015 — Lifestyle
These alternative pet gifts range from adorable guinea pig costumes to pampering subscription services that target those with smaller pets like rabbits or rodents. While a myriad of cat and dog products exist in today's market, these niche pet gifts are more specific and will appeal to animal lovers who aren't limited to traditional furry companions.

In addition to futuristic rat habitats, movement-powered hamster toys and modernist bird houses, other notable examples include organic bird seeds and elegant jellyfish tanks -- ranging from compact to oversized options.

Other more bizarre examples include homegrown escargot kits that let one breed their own pet before eating it. While it may seem like a strange concept, this kit encourages food sustainability and urban food cultivation.
