Christmas in 2020 is going to be slightly different to usual years for obvious reasons, and many of us have spent a lot more time with our pets than usual. So that means there’s even more reason to treat our beloved furry friends during this festive season.
We have compiled a selection of pawsome Christmas gift ideas suitable for cats, dogs and the other pets in your life to hopefully make the Christmas shopping a little less of a burden. The best part about it is, you can refer to the gift ideas later on in the year, whenever you fancy treating your pet once more or to celebrate their birthday!
Christmas Present Ideas for Dogs
Let’s face it, nobody and I mean nobody, will ever be as excited to receive a gift than your dog. Sure, your boyfriend might love that flight you’ve booked him and of course your mum loves that gift set that you picked up, but the excitement won’t come close to the gratitude your dog will show. The wagging tail that extends to a bum wag, tongue out laughing, full on jumping about. Sure, kids are cute at Christmas, but have you seen dogs?!
Furbo Dog Camera
If you’re looking to splash out on something special for your four-legged friend, then this Furbo Dog Camera would be a great choice.
Featuring a 1080p Full HD camera with 160 degree view, 4x zoom and night vision, you’ll be able to see your dog easily whether it’s day or night. With the 2-way chat feature, you can also talk to your dog and also hear what he or she is doing.
Furbo can also send a notification to your smart phone if it detects your dog barking, which is a great feature so you will know immediately if your dog is alarmed. You can also play remotely, by tossing treats to your pet via the app (available on both iOS and Android).
Good Boy Festive Selection Box
Treat your dog to this Festive Selection Box packed full of Christmas themed dog treats. Containing 5 different treats including Choc Drops (made with dog-safe chocolate), Mini Marrow Bones, Turkey & Cranberry flavoured Bones and Yuletide Yummies. This is the ideal gift to ensure your dog doesn’t feel left out when you’re tucking in to the post-Christmas lunch treats!
Luxury Dog Sofa Bed
Give your dog the ideal place for them to have their post-Christmas lunch nap with this luxury sofa bed.
Made from a wooden frame, with soft plush covering foam-filled cushions, it’s designed to be comfortable as well as looking stylish. The cushion is removable and washable too. The bed comes well-packaged, and requires minimal assembly, so it won’t be long before your dog can try it out.
It’s approximately 73cm wide x 41cm deep, so is not suitable for larger dogs.
Christmas Present Ideas for Cats
Now, we can’t guarantee that your cat will jump for joy at these gifts but they may just give a little purr of approval, if you’re lucky. Although we all know that they will most likely be more interested in the box they are sent in…
Molly’s Mice Christmas Catnip Mice
