What Should I Get My Pet for the Holidays?

What Should I Get My Pet for the Holidays?

Holidays are family events, and you may want to include your pets in the gift exchange. If you have small children, they’ll want to know what their pets are getting for Christmas or Hanukkah. So what are some great gift ideas for your four-legged family members?

For cats, consider the following:
•A homemade toy, like a decorated sock or ball of yarn stuffed with catnip. Kids can make these toys for their pets as part of a family crafts session.
•Catnip toys are always loved by cats.
•Collar charms for your cats’ collar.
•An “IOU” for an hour of play time — this is another great way to get your kids involved in their pets’ gifts.
•A new cat tree or scratching pad.
•Your cat’s favorite all-natural treats.
•A comfy cat bed.

For dogs, here are some of my favorites:
•A holiday-themed toy, like a squeaky Santa.
•A winter sweater/coat to keep him warm on his walks.
•A rawhide candy cane treats.
•Fresh-cooked doggie biscuits.
•A glow in the dark collar so your dog will be safe and visible at night time outings.
•An extra-tough chew toy like a Kong – you can fill with treats or peanut butter.
•A day at the “spa” — send your pet in for a day of grooming, where she’ll be pampered and brushed and come out looking and feeling like a million bucks.
•An “IOU” for a nice, long walk or a day at the dog park with the family.
•A cozy dog bed.
These are some of my favorite holiday pet gift ideas. What are you getting your pet for the holiday?
