For dog parents, spoiling our fur babies is a 365-day-a-year activity, but there’s no time like the holidays to kick it up a notch. And as a new dog mom, I might be going a tad overboard for my Chihuahua mix Barney’s first Hanukkah. From cute squeaky toys to treats to cozy little sweaters, I can’t wait to shower him with extra goodies for being such a good boy this year.
And, let’s be honest, I’m in good company: According to shopping app Klarna, 75% of pet owners plan to shop for their pets this season. Whether you’re looking for something practical or slightly (fine, very) bougie, I did some digging to find the best presents of the year for dogs large and small, as well as the parents who love them. Just do me a favor and don’t tell Barney what I’m getting him—I want it to be a surprise.
The coolest dog brand out there finally introduced a daily carrier, and it’s practically perfect. Roomy, with tons of pockets and two sets of handles, it’ll keep your pup safe and cozy during your adventures. Best of all, it’s made from 100% post-consumer polyester from plastic bottles.
I can think of at least 101 people—dog owners and otherwise—who would love this dalmatian print from fashion fave Gray Malin in their homes.
If your pup has anxiety when left alone, they’ll love this sweet companion. It has a belly pouch to hold a heat pack (that stays warm for up to 24 hours) and a battery-powered “heart” that pulses to soothe them until you walk through the door.
