Let the shopping begin! As I mentioned in my previous post, I am doing a gift giving guide for 2018. Hopefully I’ll help you find something for everyone, and everything, on your list.
Whether you’re shopping for a pet owner or pet of your own, this pet gift guide is for you. Take a look at these unique pet gifts that are perfect for the furry friends on your list. Warning, some of these techy gifts are a little pricey no matter what brand you get.
This little gadget is perfect for gift for dog lovers and cat lovers. I’m sure you’ve seen at least one commercial for similar items. Basically, you can schedule your pet’s food to disperse right from your phone event when you’re not home. It’s a really simple way to make sure they’re fed and not have to rely on someone to stop by when you’re running late getting home.
Here’s another super cool pet Christmas gift to consider. Do you constantly think about your pets when you’re away from home? If you’re like me, the answer is yes! When I can’t bring my pups with me, I want to know exactly what they’re doing and talk to them. This little camera lets you virtually play with them using the attached laser and also see what they’re doing while you’re away.
Your pet’s safety is probably one of your main priorities. If my dogs ever got lost, I don’t know what I’d do. This new collar from the American Kennel Club works not only as a GPS to help track your dog, but it also records their daily activities right into your phone. It’s an awesome option for an active person on your list. It even has safety sensors built-in for night walks and to alert you when it’s too hot or cold outside for your pet.
*This collar does not replace the importance of a microchip. When pets go missing, collars and tags can fall off. If your pet is not microchipped, schedule your appointment with The Animal Foundation. It’s only $20*
Dress your pup to impress with a cute bow tie collar. This little collar comes in multiple prints including flamingo, dogs, anchors and geometric. It also comes in multiple sizes for all sized dogs. It’s on sale right now for $10 as part of Amazon‘s pre-Black Friday deals.
Some cats cannot stop playing, especially when everyone is trying to sleep at night. (My cat lovers know what I’m talking about.) When my parents youngest cat was a kitten, we got him a ton of cat toys including a single level roller like this. He loved it! Toys like these help stimulate pet’s minds to keep them active mentally and physically. Playing is a great part of overall pet health and this toy is super affordable at under $10.
Whatever you choose to buy your pet for Christmas, you can’t forget the treats! I’m grabbing one of these for my big chewer Smokey. He can shred every toy I’ve purchased and not even think twice about it. For a little dog, he has powerful teeth. This cool chew bone is not only affordable, it’s said to last a while even for the biggest chewers. I’ve had the green and white Nylabone for Fiona for years and she’s barely chewed down one side.
Pet beds really are my favorite pet gifts for Christmas. For several years, I’ve taken Fiona to the pet store and let her pick out her own. One year she picked a pink and black polka dot one. Another year, she chose a red and white Christmas patterned one. (We literally just got rid of this one because Smokey finally chewed through it). Like slippers for people, dogs love cozy beds and blankets to cuddle up in. This one is actually under $20 so it won’t break your bank.
