It is true that the past couple of years were quite challenging for just about everyone because of the ongoing pandemic, but not for your pet. Ever since you’ve worked from home, you’ve probably spent more quality time with your furry bestie than ever before. While snuggle times are already a wonderful gift you could give your pet all year round, it’s still nice to get them something extra special on Christmas day.
After all, the unconditional love and companionship you get from your pet are absolutely some of the things that keep you going as the world gets crazy. That’s why they deserve the best holiday treats in return! So, in between shopping gifts for your human friends and loved ones, don’t forget to pick up something furfect for your cat or dog, too. We want to make your shopping a little easier this year, so we’ve curated a list of the best holiday presents that every four-legged buddy could ask for.
Our Top Picks:
Personalised Pet Dish
If you have plenty of cats/dogs at home, getting their pet dishes personalised is a great idea. It gives each of your pets a sense of ownership, knowing that these particular bowls with their names on them are their own. Of course, it takes a little training session to let them get used to their own bowls. It would even be more lovely if you add some bowl mats that are customised, too. This is to let them know where their seats at the dinner table are. Plus, your kitchen will look a bit organised, which seems more like a gift for you as the pet owner.
Now more than ever is the best time to give the gift of wellness to your loved ones, including your furry friends. If you haven’t heard yet, CBD is short for cannabidiol, a non-psychotropic chemical compound found in hemp plants.
Just like humans, most mammals also have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is thought to have a fascinating interaction with CBD. Hence, pet products containing CBD may help sustain your dog’s overall wellness via the ECS enzymes and receptors that influence various processes in the body, such as pain, stress, appetite, etc.
There are also several CBD products that you can consider for your pets, like tinctures, capsules, treats and various topicals. If in doubt, consider discussing your interest in using CBD oil for your pets with a vet.
Pet Bed Or Sofa
Your fluffy friend will be happy if you give them a big cosy sofa to make their nap times even more relaxing throughout the holidays. Besides the joy of watching your pet snooze the day away on its new sofa, the sofa itself will definitely look gorgeous in your living space.
For pups that are more sensitive to the cold, give them somewhere warm to hide during the winter season. A plush, cosy cave would be a perfect present for your pet. How about adding some cute toy plushies to cuddle to when the cold gets too much? Your fluffy friend will love that for sure!
Interactive Chew Toy
Your local pet shops might have something cool and entertaining for cats and dogs who love to play. A food dispensing chew toy, for example, is becoming a thing these days. This toy fills up with pet food or treats, which must be rolled around in order to get the food out. This is a great way to let your four-legged friend experience working hard for its own food, and at the same time, it helps stimulate their minds by keeping them busy.
Cute Pet Bandanas
Is there anything as adorable as a pet in a colourful bandana? We bet there’s nothing else at all. The bonus is that bandanas aren’t just cute but also provide practical and health benefits for your dog. Bandanas keep your dog warm during the cold season and even protect them from sunburn come summer. At the same time, some cat owners tend to use essential oils in the bandana to help their cats stay calm in stressful situations or during long trips.
Just be sure to look for bandanas that are safe to wear. Those that are made from breathable, high-quality fabric will make your pup comfortable wearing one around its neck.
Indeed, you might want to give this option a second thought, especially if your dog is not used to wearing shoes. But once you discover the many positive (paw-sitive?) uses of dog sneakers, you’ll most likely change your mind and get your dog a few pairs this Christmas.
Pet shoes are not just stylish but also practical if you live somewhere with heavy snow. Just like humans, dogs can get frostbite, too. Snow turns into balls of ice, which can wedge between your dog’s paw pads, thereby causing infection. So, your pet basically needs to wear shoes to protect its paws if you decide to walk them in the snow or If you prefer to take your cat for a walk.
