Dogs of the World Calendar

This adorable desktop calendar from DoggieDrawings’ shop on Etsy sure ticks off a lot of boxes. It’s small, practical, adorable, and informative. Compact enough for any desktop, it’s perfect for the world class dog lover in your life. Plus, the paper is durable enough to frame the illustrations when the year is up, making it an enjoyable gift for years to come. $10

Dogs or Cats of Disney Leggings

The legging trend isn’t going anywhere, and Disney dogs and cats are here for the comfy fun. With the upcoming “Lady and the Tramp” remake, we think these Disney dogs leggings will get a lot of wear.

There are also these Disney cat leggings with options for the “The Aristocats”, Cheshire Cat, or Figaro – good luck picking your favorite. $39.99

(If you're a diehard Disney-loving pet parent, you might also need a pair of these mouse ears for your pet from PifflesProper on Etsy. $16)

Leash and Treat Holder

This sturdy pine leash and treat holder from BranchedandCo is sure to please any gift recipient. It features multiple hooks for keys, leash, purse, treats, poop bags, and even a shelf for miscellaneous items needed while running out the door. Your pet-loving pal’s entryway will look so polished by giving everything its own place. It’s 16 inches by 9 inches, with a few phrase options to pick from. $58

Enamel Cat Pin

Enamel pins are a timeless way to wear your personality on your lapel, purse, or lanyard, and I honestly struggled to pick just one of the adorable cat pins on Etsy. Finally, I settled on this Literary Kitty from JustineGilbuena because it’s perfect for the cat loving bibliophiles out there. $10

Pet portraits are guaranteed to be good gifts, and we think any pet parent would love one of these engraved pendants with their furbaby’s face from MignonandMignon.

It’s delicate, personalized, and timeless for the sensibilities of any jewelry loving pet parent. Starting at $22.50

Deebot Pro

To say that getting a Deebot has changed my life would be an understatement. I’ve had robot vacuums before and, frankly, felt scammed. A friend told me how much he loved his Deebot so I got a refurbished one, and let me tell you: I love walking barefoot on the floor after it’s been swept by our little robot friend. While I have the one for hardwood, tile, and low pile carpeting, I can only imagine how in love I’d be with the Deebot Pro, a vacuum and mop combo for deep cleaning. Even during the snowiest of winters and muddiest of springs, you’ll have a like-new floor and more free time for your dog all year round. If you love a pet parent, get them a Deebot. Starting at $279.99
