10 Holiday Gifts For Every Pet (And Pet Lover) On Your List
When you give a gift for someone’s pet, you’re really giving them a gift, too. And often for the pet-obsessed, it’s even better.

Whether you’re a dog lover, crazy cat lady, or you have something more unique (miniature hedgehog, perhaps?), we all know that pets end up making it into about 99 percent of our conversations—even if they started on a topic like the weather.
Similarly, pet gifts are the ideal presents for anyone you know who treats their animal like their child. Showering their pet with gifts this holiday season will make them even happier than a gift specifically for them—we guarantee it. So we found the chicest gifts for all pet lovers—whether they have a dog, cat, or even a hedgehog habit.
A First-Class Dog Bed
Casper, the popular mattress company, now makes dog beds. The combination of pressure-relieving memory foam and durable support foam is perfect for dogs that like to dig into their beds to get comfy. Plus, it has a machine-washable cover and won’t lose its shape over time.

Making Fetch Happen
Looking for the perfect small gift for a coworker? This completely adorable peppermint striped ball set from Draper James is literally making fetch happen—with dogs, of course.

Exercise Is For the Dogs
If someone on your gift list is a fitness junkie, then clearly they already have a FitBit. But, does their dog have one, too? Help them take fitness tracking to the next level with the Wonderwoof, so they can start tracking their pet’s activity in real time.

For the classiest of pets (and their pet owners), gift them with Canine Royalty’s Mauve and Ivory Knit, a 100% cashmere sweater, just for their pup. Everyone should own a cashmere sweater, even if they have four legs.

The Pet Teepee
Whether you’re gifting for a dog or cat, every pet loves a good hideaway, and every pet owner wants that hideaway to look chic in his or her home. A pet teepee is the perfect solution to that—a unique little destination for your pet to nap the day away.
