If you recently adopted a new puppy into your family, congratulations! A puppy shower is a great way to welcome your new dog home and start their socialization training by exposing them to new people and pets.

Of course, every gathering is even better when attendees go home with gifts. And there are plenty of options for both human and canine friends.

To keep the spirits up long after the party is over, send guests home with goodie bags that have dog-themed party favors. Here are some ideas of what to put inside!

Homemade dog treats

Baking your own dog treats can seem daunting to those who don’t spend a lot of time in the kitchen. But it can be a lot simpler than you think, and your guests will appreciate the personal touch.

Take a look at our list of homemade dog biscuit recipes here. One of the recipes requires only two ingredients. There is nothing easier than that!

And if you want to take some of the guesswork out of the process, you can purchase a pre-made dog biscuit mix to bake. You can find a mix of dog treats here!

Your canine guests will be delighted to receive a bag with new toys to play with. They don’t even have to be fancy or expensive to hold partygoers’ interest. Sometimes even a tennis ball will do!

Toys can be as simple or extravagant as you want, but just make sure they’re safe for puppies. If you have larger dogs, for example, small toys can pose a choking hazard. Think about what your puppy guests will safely enjoy.

cute bandanas

It’s hard to make fashion choices for others, but luckily every dog ​​looks great in a bandana! They’re also a good choice because they just go around dogs’ necks like their regular collars, rather than wrap around other parts of their bodies like many dog ​​clothing options do.

You can get lots of simple bandanas for all the puppies at the party to match. Get ready for some adorable photos!

Or you can go extra and get bandanas personalized with your dog’s name or the names of your guests. You can get custom dog bandanas here!

Teething toys for puppies

If you have a lot of puppy guests at your party, chances are they’ll start teething soon if they haven’t already. This means they will need something suitable to chew on.

Teething toys can help with this and can also relieve some of the discomfort that teething puppies experience. Many options are available. Some teethers are flavored and some can even be refrigerated to soothe sore gums.

Personalized wine bottles

It’s important not to forget the human guests at your party. You’ll also want to send them home with something.

Wine is a great choice because, unlike other gifts, your guests won’t have to wonder what to do with it or where to put it. It probably won’t stay on a shelf until someone finally decides to throw it away in a year.

If you’re good at designing and printing, you can make your own wine bottle labels with a photo of your pooch and stick them on yourself. But if you prefer you can also buy personalized wine bottles here!
