Holiday Gifts for Your Pets

Holiday Gifts for Your Pets

With the holiday season here, many families are planning their gift giving. That includes the pets. In fact, a National Pet Owners Survey from the American Pet Products Association reveals 48% of dog owners purchased pet Christmas gifts for their pooch in 2016, as did 38% of cat owners. Aside from pet doors, there are nearly limitless ideas.

In case you need pet gifts ideas, here are a few:

Ideas for Dog Gifts

  • Rawhide, plastic, or plush bones
  • Squeaky toys in any color, shape, or size
  • Ropes with attached squeaky toys or balls
  • Personalized dog collar with name and/or stones/jewels
  • Water bottle with attachable bowl, for long walks
  • Reflective gear for walking at night
  • A new bed; some modern ones have memory foam or down feathers

Then there are some pet gifts that are just as suited for you, including a GPS collar, scratch post, or even a pet portrait. If taking selfies with your pet is a hobby, then there’s a selfie stick with a squeaker ball attached, so they’re looking when you’re ready to take a shot. However, it’s not always the accessories that are the best gifts.

Those in the giving mood sometimes consider pets as gifts. A living, breathing gift can be a great idea if the recipient wants it. If you’re going this route for the holidays, make sure to throw some hints ahead of time, and only if they’re an immediate family member. Also, pay the adoption fees—it’s not considerate to leave a loved one with surprise expenses!
