The Very Best

Custom Pet Portraits

What It Is: Oh so cute, one-of-a-kind pet portraits handmade by Etsy artist Irene, based in Italy. Painted in beautiful water colours, these sweet portraits feature your beloved pet in stunning detail. Whether opting for a solo picture or a dual set, the prices are actually quite reasonable for an 8 x 10 or 11 x 14. And if you’re buying for an animal lover in general, the store also carries a bunch of ready-made animal paintings to commemorate a pal’s obsession with elephants or other exotic animals we aren’t allowed to claim as pets!

Who It’s For: Your friend, that just got a new pet this year and is oh so in love. Your parents, who said goodbye to a beloved pet this year and would love the memento. Your child, who’s heading off to college this fall and wouldn’t mind a reminder of home.

What It Costs: A solo portrait of just one pet starts at $55 Canadian, plus $10 shipping. Two pets starts at $105.

Where It’s At: Etsy shop Dimdi.
