Our pets may not understand what makes the holidays so special, but we surely do. Don’t let holiday parties and vacation time keep you from showing your little friend some extra love. If you still haven’t thought about what to get your dog, cat, or fish, we have some excellent ideas of holiday gifts for pets to inspire you!
Big, comfy pillow.
If your pet loves to spend their days relaxing, tap into their chill nature with a gift they’ll use every day. Pet cushions come in a variety of colors, and you can even customize yours with initials and patterns that match your existing decor. Just make sure the fabric is washable!
Box of treats.
Everyone, humans and animals alike, loves being gifted their favorite food. Give your pet a present they’ll immediately appreciate and buy extra to reward good behavior later.
While we can’t deny that your pet will probably care more about the contents of the stocking than the stocking itself, you have to admit this is a cute gift idea. You can even get a picture of your pet printed on the front.
Collars are practical, but they don’t have to be boring. Play around with colors, prints, and unique identification tags. If the collar your pet currently has needs replacing, use the holidays as an opportunity to get a more comfortable and functional one.
Bath time can be a stressful time for many animals. Make the process easier with soaps that leave their fur hydrated and glossy without irritating scents or harsh chemicals. A little thought can go a long way.
Aquarium decorations (for fish).
Fish need a change of scenery too. Pet shops are full of innovative tank decorations that range from oxygen-producing plants to intricate castles. New accessories will not only please your fish; they’ll also catch the eye of anyone passing by.
While this gift might not offer immediate enjoyment, pet insurance provides you with peace of mind when it comes to the health of your fur-baby. By paying a monthly fee each month, your pet receives medical coverage for expensive treatments and illnesses that you would otherwise be unable to afford.
If you rescued your dog from a shelter, you probably don’t know much about their history, including their exact breed. While you can usually tell the primary breed of a dog by their appearance, sometimes they’re a mix of several breeds. Canine DNA tests like Wisdom Panel provide you insight into what makes your dog who he or she is! It can be fascinating to learn your dog’s lineage and how it contributes to both their physical and character traits.
Shopping for holiday gifts for pets is easy, because you know they’ll love whatever you give them. We wish you and your pets a Happy Holiday!
