Written by:

Sloppy kisses. Snuggles. Tail wags. Purrs. If you just turned into a puddle reading all of that, then chances are you’re a pet owner. When it comes to your pets, it’s probably safe to say you’ll stop at nothing to make them happy year-round.

But now that the holidays are here, it’s obviously the perfect time to spoil them even more! Since dogs and cats can’t actually talk and tell you what they want, that might make finding the purr-fect gift a little challenging—but we’re up to the task with our first-ever holiday gift guide for pets!

We’ve rounded up the top gifts for pets—keep reading for what should definitely be waiting under the tree for them this year. (Oh, and we found a few special gifts for pet owners too.)

The best gifts for pets

Saatva Dog Bed/h3>

Obviously, our dog bed has to top the list! And for good reason—we’ve taken the traditional pet bed to new heights, thanks to its ergonomic, responsive micro-coils for healthy spinal alignment and ease of motion. It comes in three different sizes to suit a variety of your furry friends, and it’s designed in luxurious plush comfort fibers that are baffle-quilted to prevent shifting and give your pets a cuddle-friendly sleep surface. Plus, the high-performance fabric cover has water-repellent barrier protection, you know, just in case your pet gets a little too excited. If you ask us, tails will definitely wag when the wrapping comes off this gift.

Taking your dog for a walk on a rainy day isn’t necessarily the most fun activity. But once you slide a pair of Wagwear WagWellies onto their little paws, well…the cuteness just speaks for itself. The set of four puddle jumpers is crafted from 100% rubber and features a secure, comfortable fit. They come in eight colors (including adorably vibrant yellow and bold red) and eight sizes.

Ouai Pet Shampoo

Ouai Pet Shampoo

We’re already pretty obsessed with all of Ouai’s products for humans, so it stands to reason we’d immediately fall in love with their shampoo for dogs and cats too. The gentle shampoo is suitable for all pets—it cleanses without stripping and helps hydrate the fur and skin while leaving the coat smooth and shiny. It’s also free of parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, sulfates, and other bad-for-pets ingredients, and it’s vegan and gluten-free. The brand’s Mercer Street scent—a blend of orange, peony, jasmine, and musk—will leave your furry friends smelling fresh and sweet.

Radley London Palace Gardens Crossbody Bag

Radley London Palace Gardens Crossbody Bag

We know dogs are usually the ones who get the zoomies, but we have a feeling a bag this cute may give pet owners a round of ’em too. From the purple and cream plaid pattern to the rubberized Scottie dog emblazoned across the front, the Radley London Palace Gardens crossbody bag deserves a round of a-paws. It’s designed in recycled polyester with water-based trim and finished with an adjustable webbed crossbody strap and top-zip closure. Just be careful of the pup-arazzi!
