Caring Gifts That Give Back




I love to give gifts that when you purchase them some of the proceeds give back to a charity.

 I wanted to show you a great gift idea for the animal lover in your life.

A charity that is near and dear to my heart is the ASPCA.  You can read about this wonderful organization and all they do to help protect and care for animals here.




I found these pillow covers on Pottery Barn Teen.

Super cute and with every purchase of one of these,  Pottery Barn gives back to the ASPCA.

This is the one I purchased.  Yep! looks like someone that lives in this household!



I did not receive anything from Pottery Barn to give a shout out on these pillows.  I just love when I can find gifts that have meaning and give back.  This one of the basset hound touched my heart and I love to support the ASPCA.

Hope if you are still trying to find a special gift for the animal lover on your Santa list  one of these pillow covers might just be that perfect gift.

Hope you are having fun decorating, shopping, wrapping and baking. Ahh this time of year goes too fast.

  6. You know, I am sorry to have been so dumb all this time. I never realized that Libby was a Basset hound! That pillow could have been made from her picture! That was my brother's favorite breed of dog- a basset hound and he had several over the years. That is great and I love those gifts that do double duty! You are SUCH a good soul! xo Diana

  12. What a great cause, Kris, and oh, how neat that your pillow looks exactly like your baby!! I have to remember to look at Pottery Barn Teen, they have a lot of things that are perfect for many of us who are NOT teens!!

    I just read that you have a contract on your home---how exciting and the post was bittersweet. A police officer, how fitting. I wish you all the best in finding a new position for Terry and a home that makes you as happy as this one has.

    Love to you,

  24. Love the pillow that is such a wonderful likeness to your.... fur baby.
    Love giving back..... We here donate to our local shelters with food gifts for the sheltered lost pets, or abandoned and abused.
    So much can be gifted back as to blankets for there cages, pet food, feeding bowls, you name it they appreciate any support they can receive.

    The kitty pillow is a likeness to Vera's (Max.)
    I wonder if they have an Italian Greyhound that matches our " Pia Bleu" ?
    Must go find out :)

    Wonderful post Kris, coming from such a giving heart as yours.

  40. These are just darling! Yes, that's a good match for your little fuzzy face! How fun these. Thank you for telling us about them. I see a little Boston Terrier pillow that would be wonderful for my son and daughter in law. They have Bostons. Thank you so much for popping in to see me and your kind words about my little Carter.

  42. Fabulous charity Kris, and what adorable pictures. You know how much I love my fur babies :).

    (I emailed you to thank you for the lovely tote bag, which I received yesterday, but it was returned. Not sure what went wrong so I thought I'd stop by here and let you know).

  43. These are so cute! I love the basset hound Libby pillow! I need to go check out the Boston Terrier one now! I always like to access Amazon and other sites through OBG Cocker Spaniel Rescue. When I do a portion of my purchase goes to help those adorable little wiggle butts! It's nice to give an extra donation, above and beyond our regular ones! Great post! Hugs, Leena

  44. I LOVE the Libby pillow... these are adorable and I love that they help all those sweet little bugs! We lost our dear Hannah in August and we adopted a rescue dog in Sept. A beautiful, horribly abused 2 year old Japanese Chin, named Gizmo... we call him Gizzy, it fits! Anyway, we were starting to figure out he had some vision problems and then he ran into a shepards hook in the backyard and popped out an eye, it was horrible. 3 surgeries later, he did lose the eye and now the cone but he has stayed sweet, strong and is still so very handsome, we love him to bits. I'll share pics soon, it's been all about Gizzy here lately! Thanks for sharing these adorable pillows and the gift of giving to our wonderful fur babies! Hugs, my friend!
