It’s getting down to the wire for holiday shopping, and we’re willing to bet there are still a couple of pet people needing to be checked off your list. Instead of aimlessly wandering the store aisles, we’ve compiled a ‘ruff’ guide to take the guesswork out of what to buy for the pets or pet people you just can’t think of what to get.
- Warmth. Some may disagree but we say certain dog’s coats could use a boost, especially shorthaired outdoorsy breeds (like Weimaraners and German Shorthaired Pointers) and small dogs. A new coat is a functional gift for the people who love to hike with their dogs year round or anyone who lives where it snows, really,
- Holiday Spirit. Who doesn’t love seeing a spirited pet?! Most pet owners overlook seasonal accessories, making them a perfectly thoughtful gift. Whether it’s a festive collar, sweater, or even Christmas-y nail polish, there’s plenty of gift options for a fashionable Fido.
- Comfort. A new bed is a great options for pals who like to cozy up when they sleep or get cold easily, or maybe a travel bed for the pet owner who frequently hits the road with their pet. And, there are so many design options it should be easy to find something that caters to their personal style.
- Entertainment. Of course new toys are always a great option, but put a little thought into it! From automatic ball launchers and laser light shows to indestructible bones and adorable stuffed (or stuffing-less) toys, you should have no trouble tailoring this gift to the pal you’re buying for.
