Christmas will be here before we know it! For most people, their beloved fur babies are more than just pets – they’re family! Don’t forget about them when it comes to giving gifts this Holiday season! Show them a little love with a special treat or a toy! You don’t have to spend a fortune but it keeps them from feeling left out on Christmas morning. Whether your special pet is a dog, cat, bird, ferret, or guinea pig — we have the perfect stocking stuffer gift ideas just for them!
- Dog or Cat Toys
Kids aren’t the only ones who get excited to receive new toys for Christmas! Try giving your dog a new squeaky ball, frisbee, or chew toy so they too can enjoy the fun on Christmas morning. Pet stores are packed with holiday-themed toys to keep playtime festive. And like dogs, cats will enjoy seeing a new shiny toy left in their stocking! Maybe buy your feline friend a new red dot teaser toy, crinkle mouse, or jingle ball. If you really want to give your cat a fun game, buy a challenging toy – perfect for stuffing with a tasty treat!
- New Leash or Collar
Give your animal a festive look with a new leash or collar! Shop for fun holiday designs and colors. They will enjoy getting spruced up and fancy for the holidays along with the rest of the family. Even a new walking or running leash will be a great stocking stuffer gift. Let your dog or cat rock their Christmas collar while you showcase your Christmas sweater fashion!
- Bandanas and Sweaters
Is your furry friend a fashionista? Does your pet get cold or have to wear clothes for other reasons? Or are you the pet parent who thinks it’s cute to dress them up? Stuff their stocking with a new outfit! You can shop for fun holiday attire online – just make sure to snap a quick pic of the new outfit before your pet scampers off in her new duds. Get your best buds outfitted for New Year’s Eve with a cheerful bandana for their neck! Some dog and cat lovers prefer the bandana look over a collar, and this is the perfect time of year to stock up with new duds!
- Tunnels and Tubes
Ferrets love tunnels. Hamsters and Guinea pigs like fun play tubes! There’s a great variety of fun options for new play pieces just for the little fur babies running around! And they fit perfectly into a pet stocking. Ferrets are known to run crazy in crinkle tunnels! They have the advantage of making irresistible noises when your ferret runs through them.
- Puzzle and Forage Toys
Highly intelligent creatures, birds are excellent pet companions! This holiday season, take the time to nurture your relationship with your pet bird by filling their stocking with special gifts that can bring you closer together! Foraging toys are a fun choice to mentally and physically engage your bird by recreating a foraging environment in their cage. Puzzle toys are also a great educational option that can occupy your bird’s time and help stimulate their minds. These types of toys for birds can be placed in a stocking made out of paper or shreddable material. Birds love to shred and chew – the crunch sound of the paper will keep them entertained on Christmas morning!
