Holiday shopping for our pets can be ruff. Our pets can’t write to Santa or tell us what they want for Christmas. If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for your furry, four-legged best friend, here are some gift suggestions that will make your cats purr and pups wag with approval. I also have great gift ideas for your pet-loving family and friends.
Toys make great gifts because there are so many options to choose from. “Active” toys, like ball launchers, frisbees, and retrieving toys keep your dog active and fit. “Puzzle” toys stimulate your pet’s mind and can keep them entertained for hours. Chew toys can also entertain your dog for hours and can keep them out of trouble. Finally, there is no better stocking stuffer for your pets than their favorite tasty treats.
Pets understand the value of rest. On average dogs and cats spend 12 hours and 15 hours asleep, respectively. In addition, dogs spend another 4 hours awake but resting, and some cats can even sleep up to 20 hours in a day. Pet parents know that if there is any down time, their pets are most likely napping. That’s why your pet will love a cozy new pet bed for the holidays. Let your pets lounge in luxury in their very own Harry Barker beds. Harry Barker pet beds are not only comfy and stylish, but also eco-friendly, and their bed covers are hypoallergenic, easy to remove, and machine washable.
Clothing for your dog is not only about fashion, but also about function. As the temperatures dip, your pets want to look cool, but stay warm this winter. WagWear makes comfortable, fashionable clothes for pets. Made from high quality textiles and featuring elegant designs, their sweaters and jackets will look great on your pet and will keep them warm this winter. You can choose between cozy fleece jackets or toasty puffer jackets in several fun styles and colors. They also make the most adorable dog WagWellies boots to keep your pet’s feet comfortable and dry.
Another pet fashion favorite is Harry Barker. They offer a selection of stylish turtleneck sweaters and cozy dog pajamas. Yes, dog pajamas! And they even make pajama bottoms for people so you and your pet can wear matching pajamas this holiday.
And for Pet-Loving Humans…
Let’s not forget about your pet-loving family and friends. Here are some great gift ideas for people who are as crazy about their pets, as you are about yours. You are not the only one who’s crazy about your pets.
Unless you have a Mexican Hairless dog, Sphinx cat, or non-shedding breed like a poodle, if you have a dog or cat, you are probably fighting a never-ending battle against pet hair. Pet hair seems to magically multiply on its own, forming fuzz bunnies right before your eyes. Although you can’t stop your pet from shedding, you can get the upper hand with a game-changing tool like the Dyson Cyclone V10 cordless vacuum. The Dyson Cyclone V10 is specifically designed with pet parents in mind. It has two different cleaner heads to remove dirt, pet hair, dander and allergens from carpets and floors, and it’s powerful, lightweight, and cordless for performance and convenience. It also has a mini motorized tool that’s perfect for pet beds and furniture.
How about fun unique gifts that show how much you love your pets? Dog Is Good makes T-shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, car magnets and more with fun and adorable slogans like “Dog is Good,” “Happy Holidogs,” “Dog is My Zen,” and of course plenty of “Dog Mom” and “Dog Dad” gear.
A Picture Book for Future Veterinarians
What do you get for the kid who loves animals? Well, if they are like most kids and want to be a vet when they grow-up, my picture book Lisette the Vet is a great gift idea. The book is about Lisette, a little girl who loves animals and wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up. When something happens to the new class pet, Lisette must overcome her fears to save the day.
With the Holidays just around the corner, these gift ideas can help you find the perfect gifts for your pets and friends who made Santa’s “nice” list.
