It’s never been a better time to be a pet in America. Our national love for dogs and cats (plus, to a lesser degree, rodents, birds, and reptiles) has created a $60 billion industry. The flood of money means come gift-giving time, there are thousands of products specifically designed to spoil your pet.
Below, we’ve compiled a list of items you can wrap, and then unwrap, for your pet this holiday season.
For the tech obsessed
For the pet who has everything
For the health-conscious
Individually wrapped meals. Each one of Just Food for Dogs’ prepackaged, handmade meals, which comes in flavors including turkey and whole wheat macaroni, turducken, and venison and squash, is approved for human consumption. Made in Southern California, they include detailed calorie and nutritional information and can be shipped across the country. $3.45 to $6.95 for a 7-ounce meal.
Puptato chips . These “guilt free” snacks are “dried, not fried” and “virtually fat free,” which makes them good for canines with particularly sensitive stomachs. Order a bag of puptato chips your dog, grab a bag potato chips for yourself, veg out on the couch, and call it a perfect night. $4.99 for a 2-ounce bag.
For the fashion-forward
Bamboo knit fleece hoodie . The hypoallergenic, sustainably sourced, comfortably soft hoodie features a harness opening on the back, so pups don’t get tangled before going on a walk. Most importantly? It’s really, really cute. $46 to $56, depending on the size.
For the practical-minded
Cat stroller . Ever tried to walk a cat? It’s a recipe for disaster. Luckily, there’s a more convenient option for owners who want to take an amble with their feline companions: a stroller for cats. Just latch your cat in, and you’re ready to go. $199.99.
