This Pet Gift Guide Comes Dog (& Dog-Mom) Approved

The quickest way to melting any discerning person’s heart — whether they be stoic bosses, uptight inlaws, picky family members, or high-maintenance SOs — is through their pet. (I say this with confidence as the very particular dog mom of a 15-pound rescue pup who now owns more knitwear than I do.) When the holidays roll in and difficult giftees start to stump you, your safest bet is to buy something special for their four-legged someone instead.

To lend a paw, I put together a shopping guide to the most stylish, surprising, and aww-inducing pet gifts that I would be thrilled to receive — plus, a handful that I already own (IRL model shots of my fur-child, Arlo, included). There’s everything from pet-sized Carhart jackets to hot-sauce chew toys, dog DNA-testing kits that give 23andMe a run for its money, and cat-scratch lounges fit for a roped-off corner of Art Basel. Whether you want to spend a lot or a little, for feline or canine, the presents ahead are crafted to impress the hands that feed them. Because remember: a gift for a pet is, at the end of the (holi)day, a gift for its human.

Never Specific, an LGBTQ+ All Inclusive Clothing and Lifestyle Brand Gets Approved for Official U.S. Trademark.

Never Specific, an LGBTQ+ All Inclusive Clothing and Lifestyle Brand Gets Approved for Official U.S. Trademark.

New York, NY, November 05, 2020 –(– A new clothing brand called Never Specific whose logo features two non-descript stick figures holding hands has been officially granted Federal Trademark protection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. This designation gives the brand exclusive rights to use that imagery on clothing and apparel.

According to the owner of the brand, Chris Daniels from New York… “Love knows no gender, sex, nationality, religion, race, color, creed, social, economic, or any other category. It cannot be predefined and therefore can never be specific.”

The owner, who identifies as a heterosexual black male also states that although the logo includes the LGBTQ community, the brand is also about all-inclusivity. “Overall, people get the message and have responded positively, now and then we’ll get some hate messages or someone saying something like ‘but what about children’…my answer to that is the logo means whatever you want it to mean, the figures could be lovers, friends, family or even strangers of any background….love is and always will be universal.”

He continues by saying, “We choose to hold our audience and potential customers in the highest regard and know that they realize the logo is obviously not promoting any illegal or non-ethical activity.”

The company currently sells clothing and other goods with the logo on its website and through online retailer Etsy with this link below:
