The Perfect Pet Gift: Christmas Shopping Ideas For The Dog Or Cat On Your List

Most of us have that one person on our Christmas gift-giving list who’s just hard to buy for. Somehow, you just never know what to get him or her. It’d really help if you could just ask what they want, but you don’t want to be obvious or give it away. If you’re buying gifts for the pet lovers on your list, it’s even harder, especially if you don’t have a pet and really don’t know where to begin. So, you don’t know what to do, and Christmas gets closer with each passing day. You need some fresh ideas, a few gift suggestions that are a little different, a lot of fun and convenient, like an automatic dog feeder so your friend doesn’t have to keep filling up a pet dish.

Canine comfort

Dogs and cats wear sweaters, Snuggies, blankets and little hats, so why shouldn’t they enjoy a comfy bed that’s guaranteed to keep them warm all winter? Your pet lover’s furry friend deserves a good night’s sleep just like anyone else, and so does your friend – without a shedding animal alongside taking up room. You can get a heated pet bed that’s so soft and warm, your friend’s dog or cat may hibernate until the spring thaw.

Sleep wear

If you’re prepared to buy a heated pet bed, why should you feel odd about getting stylish pajamas for a friend’s feline or canine pal? Chewy.com’s festive holiday onesie is made of fleece, is easy to put on a four-legged buddy, and warm enough to see him through the coldest winter night. Between the heated bed and a fleece onesie jammie, the pet on your Christmas shopping list should stay snug and warm in the coldest of climates.

Hair care

How about something for your friend, a gift that’ll help him keep his pet and his home clean and free of loose hair? You can give him a pet hair removal glove brush that’s easy to use and effective at keeping loose hair off the furniture, the carpet, your friend’s clothing and your friend’s pet. Fido or Frisky will love how it feels on his skin, a kind of pet massage. And your friend’s vents, air ducts and nasal passages will remain pet hair- and dander-free.

Kitty chaos

If you’ve ever seen one of those cat videos on YouTube where someone’s waving around a light laser while the cat goes wild, you know it’s hours of fun and exercise for a feline friend. Check out the Petsafe Bolt Interactive Laser, a great source of self-entertainment.

Tabby tunnel

It’s on Amazon.com, and it’s easy to store and set up. What could be better for your pal’s kitty this Christmas? It’s the Cat Play Tunnel, a T-shaped tunnel that cats love to play hide and seek in. If you know someone who has a whole clutch of cats, this is the perfect toy for keeping them all occupied and playing together at the same time.

Big dog toy

When it comes to pet toys, there’s nothing quite like buying for a really big dog. They have to be thick, heavy, durable and usable inside and outside. Few things fit the bill quite like the Kong Classic Dog Toy, a heavy-duty rubber chew toy that no rottweiler, German shepherd or pitbull could rip apart.

You can have some real fun doing Christmas shopping for pets. It’s an opportunity to get creative and cutting-edge in a way you may not be able to do for the humans in your life.
