I don’t know what happens at your house, but Santa brings goodies for the pets too. Stockings are hung for each and every member of our family, including the furry ones.
Christmas gifts for dogs and dog owners
1. Yummy, delicious treats.
The way to your dog’s heart is through his or her stomach. Treats are a delicious and healthy natural snack you’d be proud to gift them over the holidays.
2. Donation to pet shelter.
Personally, I love when people make a donation in my name. I really don’t need a thing, and it warms my heart to know that someone in need is getting help – especially when it’s animals. Shelters are very crowded this time of year especially, but they need donations all year long. Any pet lover would be thrilled to get this gift for Christmas.
3. A new food/water bowl.
A nice shiny new bowl is always a nice idea. Our bowls get dirty and gross so I always welcome a new one. But that doesn’t mean we’d throw it away (see gift idea #2 above).
It’s funny, because I was looking for a new frisbee for my kids and I kept coming across ones made for dogs. There were lots of cool outside toys for dogs which make a great gift and good exercise for not only the dog but the pet parent.
5. A pet portrait ornament
This one again is geared toward the pet parent, but isn’t it just precious? This would make a lovely personalized gift to be enjoyed during this Christmas season and each one to come.

I think my fur baby would love the chicken jerky. He loves chicken and chicken liver so I won’t have any trouble giving this to him as a treat. I love the idea of making a donation to a local shelter. That would be a great help!

We do not have any pets, 5 kids soon 6 is enough for me to handle :) These all sound like amazing gift suggestions!

This is a nice list and it is a good thing to do to include your pet on the holiday.
I especially like that donation to shelter idea.

These are great ideas. A pet portrait ornament would be awesome and it’s always a good idea to pick up some tasty dog treats for the holidays.

These are all great ideas. We have two pooches so definitely will be checking out some of these.
I love the pet portrait ornament idea. One of my cats has a personalized ornament and I need to get some for the rest of the cats!

I am loving the Christmas tree decoration that is so cute and Sally definitely needs a new bowl, the OH managed to break hers yesterday. x

That little pet ornament is such a cute little memento for your pet! My pups like the chicken jerky. I bought a bag for their stocking this week, actually! They’re going to be so excited. I haven’t put it in there yet though, I imagine they’d smell it through the bag. They love that stuff!

We got Milo some treats and a few new toys this year. He will be happy!
