The loyal companions who give us the best gifts year-round, welcome home dances, warm snuggles and unconditional love, deserve to receive some gifts as well. Our pets are truly the best givers, and while they might not ask for much in return -- a belly rub here and there is always appreciated -- that doesn't mean they don't deserve to be spoiled a bit, too. And even if you pamper your pet daily (my dogs eat better than I do some nights!), they'll still love a gift.
We called on
for their recommendations for sure-to-please gifts for dogs, cats and other furry friends:
A New Bed:
Cushioned with surrounding bolsters,
is made with cotton fabric and stuffed with a signature fiber. Perfect for the pooch who wants to lounge, this bed is not only comfortable, but functional too: The cover is removable and machine washable!
If you're singing "Baby it's cold outside," chances are your pet can feel the chill, too! Keep your dog warm and putting its best paw forward with
. Not only do the metal buttons and chocolate brown faux suede say flawless flair, but the Sherpa Lining will keep your pooch snug. It'll suit the teeniest of pups through the larger lot, coming in sizes X-small up to XX-large.
A Fresh Taste -- and Look:
Keeping your pet's food fresh and easily accessible can be easier said than done. Our dog food bag has toppled over one too many times, and the re-sealable closure doesn't always hold up to its name. The
will ensure your pet's food stays fresh, while keeping it handy for feedings. The canister comes in a variety of sizes holding 10 to 40 pounds of chow.
Warmer Bellies & Paws:
My little doxies can double as feet warmers; they love staying toasty under the covers on cold winter nights, so this gift has their names written all over it! K&H's one-of-a-kind
would be the perfect present for the pup that loves to find hot spots by the fire. It's non-toxic, and only takes minutes to heat up in the microwave -- plus it stays warm inside their bed for up to 12 hours!
Travel in Secure Style:
If your dog likes to cruise in the car, keep it safe in
. The comfortable carrier can be attached to the headrest of any passenger seat and holds up to 30 pounds.
Of course the simplest of pet gifts will do just fine, too. Show your pet love with a nice scratch under the chin and don't forget the nose rub -- just watch out for the licks of appreciation!
