As a reader of this blog you know that this space is a place to help bereaved pet owners find help in healing after suffering pet loss through inspiration and art. I’m now a foster pet parent and appreciate finding new and creative ways to celebrate our furry family members living in the present and the past.
Like many pet parents our furry family members are the lights of our lives. So, finding unique and clever gifts to share with friends and family is always fun. Discovering pet memorial gifts like personalized key chains, custom portraits and paintings are just a few ideas I’ve come across. It’s a positive way to remember our loved ones in grief without focusing so much on sadness. Focusing on the joy and happiness our pets make us feel is important and helps heal the heart.
This brings me to my recent experience. Several weeks ago I was contacted by a company called PuppyYou.com. As a fan of Impurrfectlife they wanted to share a sample of their most popular product with me. They understand that pets are family and after taking a look at their company, I was fully on board. In exchange for receiving this gift I’ll be sharing my honest review. All opinions are my own. So with that said, let me tell you about PuppyYou.com and how they can benefit you.

My personalized pet photo pillow experience
As I mentioned before, I’m a fan of new and unique gifts for pet parents. So having this opportunity to have a personalized pet photo pillow of my own was exciting.
Since this company reached out to me via email I placed my order the same way. Normally, you can order online via their website. The pillows come in four different sizes. Four sizes available: 16”,20”,24”,28” I was sent the 20” size.
First, I was asked to send a clear pixel (1000×1000) image of my pet. I have lots of pictures however very few with most of her entire body. However, I decided to use this image
Second, the company will crop the outline of your pet and let you know if the image is approved for printing.
Thirdly, once approved my next step was to provide my mailing address for shipping. The company ships worldwide. After about 15 business days I received my product in the mail.
My pillow arrived
Final My thoughts
This is the final product. So what are my final thoughts?
Overall I love it. The pillow is big and super soft and fluffy. The picture I sent in looks identical to the printing on the pillow. The colors are spot on as well.
Good customer service
I appreciated the great customer service when submitting my order and communicating back and forth regarding image details. I like that the company makes sure you approve your image before printing to help ensure you are satisfied and also they deliver quality.
The pillow is machine washable (although I haven’t tried that yet). More than likely, if I was to get the pillow dirty, I would probably spot clean it.
Although I received this pillow in exchange for my honest opinion, I can say that the pricing is pretty reasonable. Starting as low as $39.99 and up I think this price is affordable compared to some companies which provide a similar service. If this price point is still to high for you, this company does offer other personalize items like phone cases that are under $30.00.
I like the fact that shipping is worldwide and they also provide a tracking number too.
They accept PayPal or major credit cards for orders as well.
The only negative thing I can see being an issue for some people would be the shipping time. From the time of notification of shipping to receiving, it took about 15 business days or three weeks. So, if you are the type of person that needs expedited shipping, this may not be an option for you. I’d suggest ordering products well in advance if it’s a gift for a friend or loved one.
Final verdict is in
Two thumbs up!
After my own experience with this product, I give it two thumbs up and definitely would recommend to others! I think this 3D personalized pet photo pillow would make for a great gift for both bereaved pet parents and all animal lovers. PuppyYou.com offers these pillows in the style shown above or square shape too. Sizes vary starting at 16” inches and up.
If you are not a fan of pillows, they also offer a few other accessories personalized with your pets photo. Don’t forget you can save 20% off your order by using code “puppyyou” at check out.
I like that this company started from an idea to help a bereaved pet parent. I think that’s very touching and relatable to us all as pet parents. We all can agree that pets live on in our hearts forever. And this company offers another way we can keep the memory of our pets alive.
