By Lea Jaratz

This year’s list of gifts for dogs is sure to excite your pup. We’ve got a little bit of luxury sprinkled in, to make their holidays full of comfort and joy.

Sheri Self-Warming Dog Bed

I’m envious of the doggie model that got to snuggle up in this giant plush donut. It’s shaped to alleviate pressure from the joints while supporting the neck. The vegan shag fur and self-warming stuffing mimic a mother’s snuggle. It’s washable and comes in a variety of colors and sizes for dogs up to 150 pounds, making this an affordable luxury we’d love in our homes.

Starting at 34.95 and ships free in the US.

Ruff-N-Tuff Reindeer

West Paw crafts their toys to last for ages, so this Ruff-N-Tuff Reindeer will be fun all year long. Perfect as a stocking stuffer, this durable squeaker toy is filled with their patented recycled filling. It’s great for snuggling, chewing, fetch, and whatever else your dog can think up.


ChiChewy Ball

For the dog who always needs a project, the ChiChewy Ball brings the durability we expect from KONG with a shape and texture dogs love. You can stuff it with peanut butter or cheese to keep your dog extra busy or use the wedge to hold a treat. It rolls in a bit of a wonky way to keep your dog guessing where the game will go next, making it the perfect enrichment toy for when you’re stuck indoors.

3 sizes available, starting at $5.99

Holiday Cookies

Dogs can share in the taste of Christmas with these charming holiday treats that look almost good enough for your cookie exchange Full of peanut butter, cinnamon, and honey, but without common allergens, they’re an ideal year-end gift for neighbors, clients, friends, and any dog on your shopping list.

$12.95 (You might also like these Lumps of Coal treats for the dogs on your naughty list.)

Dog Collar with Bottle Opener

The Holiday Cookies collar isn’t just festive and bright. Made in the USA, it’s also eco-friendly, has super durable hardware, and its waterproof lining prevents that dog smell that eventually ruins most dog accessories. It has a matching lead and...wait for it...a bottle opener in the tag ring. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! Take a second and browse the rest of their patterns, because there’s something for every dog on your list.


Fleece Dog Sweater

Keep your puppers snuggly in this cozy fleece that is just Christmassy enough to be a holiday sweater but stays in style all winter long. The neck extends so you can tuck in their cold widdle ears and the waist cinches so it keeps out all the drafts. Slightly stretchy and super soft, your dog will appreciate it on chilly days.

$45 in sizes S-XXL

Zoo Snood

I’m not sure if this is more a gift for the dog or for the dog parents, but let’s say both. I am in love with Zoo Snoods. They’re ear warmers! They’re costumes! They’re photo props! They’re amazing! The baby alien is perfect for the Mandolorian fan on your list and the reindeer is perfect for your walks and sleigh rides. Just one thing: If you buy one you have to send us pictures of your dog wearing it.

Starting at $14.95

We’re spending more time with our pets now than ever, so why not do a little something to let them know how important they are to us. If funds are tight, don’t spend one second feeling bad. Your dog still loves you. They don’t even know about the holidays. There are lots of ways you can spoil your dog on the cheap. Bake them homemade dog treats or spend some bonding time with them. That would be the greatest gift for them, and you’d be treating yourself too.
