As appealing as a week at the beach sounds any time of year, for pet lovers who are forced to leave their four-legged companions at home, there can be a bit of separation anxiety — on both sides. Since taking Fido or Fluffy along with you to paradise isn’t always an option, three pet lovers in Sydney, Australia, came up with what just might be the next best thing: beach gear featuring your favorite fuzzball’s mug.

Known as Petflair, the company — which recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter that has already raised more than four times its initial goal of $11,917 — will customize a range of beachwear and accessories including swimsuits, towels and bags, with an enormous photo of your beloved pet. Saint Bernard on a Speedo? You’ve got it! Beagle on your beach tote? No problem!

In the swimsuit department, women have got three options, all of them one-piece suits: the open-back Millie, the cross-back Frankie or the string-back Coco. Men can order the Max, an Olympic-style swim brief that comes in a dozen different colors and also allows for a pattern add-on — there are also beach towels, bags and sticker sets. Turning your furry, feathered or finned friend into a fashion icon is super simple: choose your item, upload a photo of your pet, pick a color and hit send. Check out the video below for a closer look.

As the Kickstarter campaign is still ongoing, the first batch of orders are expected to arrive in December — which makes this a perfect holiday gift for the animal obsessive in your life.
