1. Cuddler Pet Bed & Gift Set
Don’t sleep on upgrading your pooch’s bed. Pups love to curl up and snooze, especially during the winter. This stylish plaid-print bed with cushion headrest and plush bumpers is perfect for small- and medium-sized pets. To help achieve maximum levels of comfort, a bone-shaped squeak toy/pillow and cozy snuggle blanket are also included.
2. KONG Holiday Floppy Knots Reindeer Dog Toy
Fido can finally show Rudolph who's boss when he gets his paws on this reindeer dog toy. The knotted rope texture and squeakers will satisfy your canine's natural instincts, and the hapless yet sturdily built reindeer is sure to last long after Santa has returned to his village, sans one of his herd.
3. Christmas Cozy Cat Bed
Kitties enjoy their privacy, making this Christmas tree sleep cave an ideal gift for any festive feline. The round cushioned base provides a soft spot to purr the night away, and the decorative design complete with colored balls and a bright gold star adds to the yuletide flavor. Although more suitable for cats, small breed puppies can turn it into a personal doggy den until they outgrow it.
4. Pearhead Red PawPrint Dog & Cat Ornament
Brighten the holidays by creating a custom tree ornament from your pet’s paw print. This crafty kit requires no mixing or baking. Just press your pal’s foot into the non-toxic soft clay and wait for it to dry. Redo the casting as many times as you need to ensure the purrfect capture. Finally, cherish your furry family member by prominently displaying the ornament on your Christmas tree.
5. Frozen Olaf Dog Costume
With Disney’s “Frozen 2” out in theaters, now is the perfect time to dress Fido as one of the movie’s most lovable characters, Olaf the happy-go-lucky snowman. This Disney costume from Rubie's Costume Company features a step-in suit with attached arms and pullover headpiece. It will immediately transform your four-legged thespian into a bonafide big screen icon.
6. Yummy Yuletide Log Plush Dog Toy
If your pooch is going to chew on something this season it might as well be a Yummy Yuletide Log. This plush squeak toy made using non-AZO dyes and stuffed with Planet Fill filler sourced from recycled plastic bottles boasts a double-layer exterior adorned with holly leaves and red berries. It’s great for playing fetch on Christmas morning or snuggling with in front of the fireplace on Christmas Eve.
7. Ugly Sweater Holiday Cat Tunnel
Sweaters designed with garish colors and headache-inducing patterns are as much of a holiday tradition as kissing under the mistletoe and Aunt Agnes’s inedible fruitcake. The ASPCA has taken this seasonal staple one step further with their Ugly Sweater Holiday Cat Tunnel. Made using a collapsible frame wrapped in red and green zigzag crinkle paper, it’s a wonderfully tacky toy for fever-pitch felines to race through the openings and swat the suspended toy ball until they inevitably lose interest.
8. A “Christmas Miracle” Artisan Tree Topper
This adorable angel pup ornament by iHeartDogs will not not only brighten your Christmas tree or mantle, but the proceeds from every purchase help feed 30 shelter dogs. It makes a great addition to any pet-loving home and also serves as a lasting symbol of what’s truly important during the season of giving. The company also sells customizable Christmas stockings made just for Fido. Enter your pooch’s name when ordering and it will be embroidered across the cuff when it arrives at your door. Your purchase will help feed three shelter dogs.
9. Holiday Reindeer Dog & Cat Sweater with LED Nose
Fido and Fifi can channel their inner Rudolph by sporting this fashionable Reindeer Sweater complete with light-up LED nose. The 100% acrylic fabric adds extra warmth, and the built-in leash hole ensures your "reindog" or "reincat" will be safely harnessed while guiding you on a foggy Christmas Eve walk through the neighborhood.
10. Santa Softies Dog Treats
Your furry elf can enjoy a taste of the season with these yummy Santa Softies Dog Treats from Blue Dog Bakery. Infused with natural gingerbread flavor and made with real molasses, oats and nonfat milk, these low-calorie chewy bites of Christmas goodness ensure Fido won’t feel left out while you chug spiced rum eggnog at the holiday family gathering.
11. DJ Deck Scratching Pad
Your kitty has been tasked to provide the entertainment for the neighborhood Christmas soiree and is desperate for suggestions. Problem solved. Fifi can drop some sick beats and dull her claws at the same time thanks to this crafty DJ Deck Scratching Pad. She’ll be the talk of the cattery after spinning an ice-melting mashup of “White Christmas” and “Cat Scratch Fever.”
12. Super Cozy Merry Paws Throw Blanket
If there’s one thing our furry friends appreciate on a cold winter night, it’s a warm blanket. Snuggle with your cuddle-buddy under this attractive holiday-themed throw, which comes in both dog- and cat-friendly designs. Best of all, each purchase feeds 71 shelter animals!
