Before you make a selection, check out reviews so you know you are getting safe, durable products for your pet or any pet lover who makes it onto your shopping list.
Tasty Treats for Stockings
The way to most dogs’ hearts is through their stomachs, so you cannot go wrong with some delicious treats to stuff those stockings. If you are handy in the kitchen, you can use some festive treat recipes to make batches of biscuits, cookies, and treats to check off all the dogs and pup parents on your list. Whipping up some tasty mutt mints or peppermint treats will also leave your home smelling like the season, but if you prefer to purchase treats, there are many options to explore. You can find a list of the best treats to buy for dogs over at Business Insider, ranging from training treats to dental bones.
Tech to Keep Your Connected
If you really want to splurge on your dog or a dog lover in your family, you can check out some high-tech pet gear that is guaranteed to impress. Some of the more fun items on this list are interactive toys that allow pup parents to play with their furkids even when they are away. If you want to give your pup parents peace of mind, you can also opt for tech that helps keep their dogs safe. Pet trackers and GPS collars are becoming more popular, and there are a variety of models to choose from, so you can find one that fits your budget.
Cozy Beds for Multiple Naps
Dogs love to doze away their days, so why not get them a bed that will keep them comfy during those long naps? Beds make a great Christmas gift for the pets on your list, and you can easily find a bed for any size, shape, or health need. Small dogs will love cuddling into a little bed shaped like a bowl, whereas larger breeds may need something they can stretch those massive limbs out on. If you have any older dogs on your list, you may want to look for something that provides more support for achy joints. Orthopedic dog beds are a safe choice for older and larger dogs who tend to have more issues with pain and stiffness in their body.
Gear to Keep Pets Active
For those active pups and dog parents on your list, you may need to think outside of the box for Christmas gifts. Check out stores like REI for hiking and outdoor gear that will keep even the most adventurous dogs outfitted. You can pick up backpacks to help dogs carry their own supplies or specialty creams that will protect paws from exposure to ice, snow, and other elements. REI’s flexible exchange policy also makes it easier for recipients to make returns if something doesn’t quite fit on their pooch.
Finding the perfect present for the pups and pet owners on your shopping list doesn’t have to stress you out. You can check out reviews and product lists online, so you are sure to get gifts that will put a smile on any dog or dog lover’s face.
