I truly can’t believe it’s time to start shopping for the holidays! I mean it feels like the whole summer zipped past me. I’m a planner. I try my absolute best to make sure that when the holiday shopping season rolls around I plan out the gifts I’m getting my loved ones. And that includes my pets. I have an adorable dog named Bailey and a very sassy cat named General Mittens. Yes, it is probably the best name in the world for her. Regardless, I need to make sure I buy them something for the holidays otherwise they’ll feel left out. So pet gifts are a must!

I know what you’re thinking. “What makes it a gift for them? Is it just toys?” Well, no it’s not just toys. In fact, I usually like to go the route of one toy, one treat, and one special item just for them. What makes it a gift for them though? Honestly, I think the main answer to that is that it’s something they’ll get joy out of. The items I chose for this list have that in mind.

Yes, you can absolutely grab your pet a bunch of toys for Christmas. But what about a cute new collar or bandana set? How about a place to hang their favorite leash? And yes, there will be some great toys on this list that I’m sure you and your pet will love. But I also love thinking outside of the box. The holiday shopping frenzy is starting, so as you go into this season, I hope this list helps you find some great new pet gifts for your favorite furry friends!

  • 4 Pack Dog Christmas Bandanas

    How incredible are these? I can already see my pup wearing these. Honestly, I love that they come in a pack of four too. My dog is a wonderful girl, but she does love rolling around in the grass, and her bandanas get dirty quickly. This way I can rotate them out much easier, while still feeling like she’s in the holiday spirit.

  • Nestpark Pup Claw Dog Toys

    I love spoiling my pets. And for me, that means they have more toys than they should. But I can’t help it! When I see something like this, I just have to grab it for them. While I’m enjoying a White Claw, the dog can enjoy a Pup Claw. It’s kind of the same thing, right?

  • Giant 9.5" Dog Tennis Ball

    I think this is my dog’s dream ball! She hasn’t mastered the art of retrieving part of fetch and retrieve, but hey she loves tennis balls. This giant one is definitely going under the tree for her this year.

  • Personalized Dog Leash Holder

    Okay, this gift might not be for your pet… it might just be for you. I feel like I always misplace my dog’s leash. This is a super cute and fun way to make sure leashes have their own specific place. Plus, you can get it personalized so it’s a great little way to feature your pet in your home’s décor.

  • Personalized Reusable Pup Cup

    I’m obsessed with this! If you also love grabbing a pup cup from Starbucks for your pet then this is a really great option for a gift. The little red ceramic cup can be personalized, which is so fun. The cup comes in multiple colors and has a variety of colors for the text.
