Amazing Gifts for Pets and Pet Lovers

Published on January 13, 2023

Pets are like family, and they deserve a little gift every now and then. This list will also work for finding gifts to give any pet parents that call their dogs their babies and treat their cats like royalty. Since so many people adopt pets, I bet we all have some pets and pet parents on our holiday list this year.


rabbitgoo Dog Harness

I have a 90-pound Labrador Retriever, and I bought this harness for him when he was about three years old, after years of battling with pulling on-leash. This thing was a godsend. After a few months of using this harness on every walk, my big old boy completely stopped pulling. Even without it now, he won’t pull unless there’s a cat. All bets are off if he sees a cat. If you know someone with a gentle giant that has lots of energy, I can’t recommend this harness enough.

FortiFlora With Probiotics Canine Nutritional Dog Supplement

Here’s another product that my dog has personally given his paw print of approval. If you have a dog with a sensitive stomach, every day can be a struggle. These packets, shaken over a pup’s food once a day, will seriously improve the situation, if not solve it entirely. These packets may not be the most exciting gift in the world, but your dog will thank you for it.

Pet Qwerks Dinosaur BarkBone Chew Toy

Every dog loves a bone! This particular bone is an excellent option. Even the most powerful of pups won’t be able to shred it, at least not immediately. It also eliminates the mess of real bones—a perfect stocking stuffer for the family’s furry friend.

The Original Calming Shag Donut Cuddler Dog Bed

The dog in the picture kind of says it all on this one. He just looks so cozy and comfy. If you have a dog in your life that needs that level of pure relaxation, this dog bed is the perfect holiday purchase for you.

URPOWER 5-in-1 Convertible Dog Car Seat Cover

This is a dog parenting essential if you ever drive with your pup. It will save your backseat from dirt, dog hair, and the general muck that dogs tend to bring home from their adventures. This ingenious device fits most cars, and it’s definitely comfier for the dogs themselves than a regular back seat.

Chuckit! Ball Launcher

The Chuckit! is another dog owner’s essential. This thing makes it so much easier to play fetch. It makes the ball go much further for the dogs and keeps your hand clean at the same time. It’s a simple device, but one that really revolutionizes the game of fetch.

ZippyPaws – Skinny Peltz No Stuffing Squeaky Plush Dog Toy

These toys are every dog’s dream. They’re super fun to drag around the house and also nice and cuddly, if that’s what your dog goes for. If you like to give a stocking to your dogs, too, these are the perfect little stocking stuffers that will make your pup’s whole Christmas morning.

Embark | Dog DNA Test | Breed & Health Kit

If you rescued your dog, you may not know exactly what breed your pup is or what health problems they might be genetically prone to. This is great for figuring out just exactly where your dog came from and what, if anything, you need to be worried about for the future. It’s also just super cool and interesting.


UPSKY Cat Toy Roller

This cat toy roller is both adorable and very fun for kitties to play with. It’s an easy way to keep any cat entertained for hours on end and keep them from tearing up the furniture in sheer boredom.

SmartyKat Hot Pursuit Cat Concealed Motion Toy

This is another great cat toy to provide endless entertainment. However, unlike the previous toy, it’s also super easy to store. Any cat will love chasing this little thing around, and when they’re done, it can be shut up in a drawer before the guests come over.

Cat Window Perch

If you know a cat that is definitely feline royalty, this is the perfect perch for that cat. It sticks easily to any hard surface but is specially made for windows. This allows cats to sunbathe, which is every cat’s dream.

FortiFlora With Probiotics Feline Nutritional Cat Supplement

This is exactly like the probiotics earlier in this list for dogs but specially formulated for cats. Just shake a little on their food, and watch their health improve!

Other and or Both

Furbo Dog Camera: Treat Tossing, Full HD Wifi Pet Camera

Whether the people on your list are dog people or cat people, every pet owner will love being able to watch over their pets with this cool little device. With this camera, you can see what your pets are up to, and they can hear your voice. If you have a dog, it can even dispense treats.

Pet Grooming Gloves

Pets sometimes shed. These gloves will help them shed less. Plus, the cats and dogs of the world will get more love. It’s a total win-win.

Veken Pet Fountain

Okay, so this one is a bit of a gimmick, but it is a very cool way to dispense water to the animals in the house. It has a mat below it to prevent mess, and both dogs and cats will get both hydration and entertainment all in one go.

Flea, Tick, and Mosquito Control Spray for Dogs, Cats, and Home

I genuinely love the smell of this stuff, but more importantly, it actually works. I bought it on a bit of a whim after the beginning of tick season didn’t go that well for my dog. A few sprays of this before a hike in the woods, and there was not a tick in sight. Plus, it makes my dog smell much better than usual.

Pet Grooming Brush

This pet grooming brush is a lifesaver if you have a pet that sheds a ton. While the glove brushes are super cool and great for light brushing, this is much more heavy-duty for animals that really shed. My dog is a major shedder, and this brush makes a huge difference, and he loves it.

Gorilla Grip Slip Resistant Pet Bowls and Silicone Feeding Mat Set

These pet food bowls are super cute and come in all sorts of colors to match every home decor scheme. The nature of these bowls also prevents the big messes that certain furry friends can be prone to. These are a perfect gift for new pet owners that need a more efficient feeding system.

TEEMO Aquarium Groot Air Bubbler Decorations

Last but not least, we have an adorable little stocking stuffer. Again this is geared towards the kids with fish on your holiday list, but this is so adorable that even the adults will love it.
