Holiday gifts for the pet-loving family
Give the pet-loving family a holiday gift that proudly displays their devotion to their furry, feathered and scaly friends.
This fun black kitty clock (Chimpfeet, $55) is the ideal holiday gift for the family that loves their cat. This cool cat clock features a fishbone pendulum and quirky design. It can be mounted on the wall or used as freestanding clock.
Many pet stores and other retailers offer Christmas ornaments in the shapes of different dog breeds. Check out the Luv-A-Pet holiday ornaments (PetSmart, $5). Whether the family dog is a Rottweiler or Chihuahua, they have the perfect ornament.
Dog soap dispenser
The Parker the Dog Soap Spitter (Chimpfeet, $24) is sure to be a conversation piece. This hand-painted resin character will brighten up any family bathroom. The dog "spits out" the right amount of soap for handwashing when you press his head. This quirky gift is suitable for any dog-loving family.
When the family travels, they don't want to leave their best friends behind. Give them a pet-friendly directory like Traveling With Your Pet: The AAA Petbook (Amazon, $14). This annually updated book features over 14,000 pet-friendly lodgings, campgrounds, attractions, dog parks and more across the United States and Canada.
Heated furniture cover
For the family that loves their pet, a heated furniture cover is a practical gift idea that will be much appreciated. The K&H thermo-heated furniture covers (PetSmart, $150) protect couches, loveseats and chairs while providing dogs and cats with a cozy, warm place to rest. The cover captures loose hair and is easily machine washed.
Just because the family loves their pets, that doesn't always mean they want to sleep with them. A cozy pet bed is the answer to provide dogs and cats a place to rest and stay warm without taking over the family beds. At HomeGoods, you can find a wide variety of pet beds, along with leashes, toys and other pet accessories at up to 60 percent off.
