‘Tis the season to be jolly! Check out this list of top nine gifts you can get for your four-legged loved ones! For many people, pets are like family, so how could we forget to wrap up something nice for them under the tree? Sure, they may have a different way of unwrapping gifts than we do, but they’ll enjoy their gifts just as much!
9. UGLY SWEATERS
Who doesn’t love a festive ugly holiday sweater? They’re so much fun, let your pet rock one too! Having an “ugly sweater” holiday party is one of those funny festive events that can be enjoyed by all. Just like ugly holiday sweaters for humans, there were sweaters for pets too. Find a vintage ugly pet sweater and I’ll personally applaud you!
8. HEATED PET BEDS
We all love to feel warm and cozy during the holidays – let’s make sure our babies feel equally as comfy! Pick up one of these heated pet beds and watch your pet indulge in warm and cuddly delight!
7. CANDY CANE TREATS FOR PETS
Don’t worry – they’re not really candy! These are perfectly safe and delicious dog treats just as tasty as their regular raw hide treats – except they are festive and fun! Hang these on the tree or in their stocking to add little gifts for your furry family members.
6. ALL-TERRAIN DOG SHOES
Have an active family? Bring Fido along for caroling in these and s/he is sure to stay comfy and warm. All these gifts are about splurging on your pets just as you do for your human loved ones. Your pup will be able to run free just the same, but keep their paws warm and safe from the cold!
5. STAR WARS GEAR
Petco has a line of ‘Star Wars’ toys and clothing for dogs to dress up like characters from the film like Princess Leia with her signature bun hairstyle. Some pets love to prance in new outfits, if yours is one of them, s/he might love this!
4. DEVICES FOR OLDER DOGS
Solvit Pet Products make it easier for senior dogs to get around by helping them avoid injury with a Department of Transportation-tested safety harness or helping them ease their way out of a car vehicle for those who can no longer jump.
3. PET CHARMS
This can be for a pet collar or for your key chain. Add a little something heart-warming and festive that signifies this year with your pet loved one. I like to add a charm with the year so that I can add it to my pet’s christmas ornament each year.
2. GOPRO INC.’s FETCH DOG HARNESS
Do you love making video clips with your pet? Or just want to see what life is like from the other side? Check out the first dog harness by GoPro Inc.! Just like a regular GoPro, this is built in to your dog’s harness and attaches facing the front or back. Imagine how many stories could be told and revealed with this!
1. ADOPT A PET
The greatest gift of all would be saving a life. During the holidays especially, there are many adoption events like the one recently held in Irvine, CA, where thousands of locals were invited to visit with pets needing a new family home. Check out the LA Animal Shelters for a list of upcoming adoption events in your area. I promise you that nothing will feel more rewarding than bringing home a rescued dog or cat.
Happy Holidays from Noho Arts District!
