From the gourmet dog to the senior dog and more, there's something for every set of paws out there! Here are our "paw-some" gift picks for the dog in your life!

The gourmet dog

Dog donuts

Who says donuts are just for humans? Spoil your dog with these Gourmet Tails Vanilla Mini Donuts with Sprinkles Dog Treats for a sweet treat. (Amazon, $5)

Gourmet Dog Treats

Because our dogs are part of the family, shouldn't we feed them the same? These Becca's Barkery Bacon, Egg & Cheese Gourmet Dog Biscuits are made of 100 percent human grade ingredients and have no added preservatives. (Amazon, $31)

gourmet dog jerky

Throw away your average beef jerky and upgrade your pup's pallet with Loving Pet Gourmet Meat Treats made of 100 percent duck fillet.
(Amazon, $15)

Green Interactive Feeder.

For the dog who loves mealtime, make it a little more interesting with the Green Interactive Feeder. He'll delight in finding all of the hidden morsels and will be begging to use the feeder with every meal. This feeder, suitable for all size dogs, also stimulates curiosity and slows down eating. Sure beats a regular old feeding bowl! (Amazon, $27) 

The festive pup

The active dog

Release N Run Leash

If you often walk your dog off-leash and hate carrying around the leash once you unhook him, the Release N Run Leash from Rad Dog is exactly what you've been waiting for. Super strong and made of climbers webbing, the 4-foot built-in leash retracts into the collar, leaving your hands free to throw balls and sticks at the park. When you need to use the leash again, just grab the loop on the collar. Easy and really handy, right? (Amazon, $40)

Chew Guard Technology toys

For the dog who takes playtime extremely seriously, look no further than the durable toys from GoDogFun. Built to last with Chew Guard Technology, these brightly colored toys are what your pup needs if he gets a little carried away when it comes to chewing and biting. Made with safety in mind, these toys stand up to the most aggressive tug-o-wars. Our favorite? The floppy goDog dragons! (Amazon, $13)

Dog booties

These Ultra Paws Traction Dog Boots are the perfect present for your pooch's paws warm this winter. They are maximized to ensure good traction to prevent slips and come in sizes extra small through extra large. (Amazon, $23)

You might just be jealous of your dog with this one! (Amazon, $120)

Yes, pets are part of the family too so I see no reason that they should be excluded from the gift portion of Christmas! Although I think the goggles are absolutely adorable, I'm sure what my dog really wants is some of those grillicious treats!!

Cool stuff! I love to dress up my dog and make him more festive (he's not so excited about it) for holidays. Thanks for the cool tips!
