Christmas is just around the corner and this is the perfect time to show your pet just how much they mean to you. Many pet owners treat their pets like members of the family and do go the extra mile to keep their cat, dog or fish comfortable and healthy. There are a few things you can do to show your pet appreciation and love for the holiday season.
One gift you can give your pet this holiday season is to get a mailbox and have the pet's picture pasted or painted on it. Outside the front door, put a welcoming mat with images of the dog just outside, showing that both human and canine guests are welcome. Find kitchenware and coffee mugs where you can have the dog's picture printed on. Water bowls and dog food with the name of your dog stenciled on it are other great ideas.
Bed Covers and Treats
You might also want to consider giving your pet a new bed cover or a pet store gift card. Dog treats are a favorite among dogs and tying these up with a red ribbon in a basket is a good idea. Look for doggie Christmas stockings and tree ornaments to help celebrate the holidays with your pet.
For dogs and cats, apparel can also be given this Christmas. Knitting booties or sweaters for pets that happen to be in colder climates will truly be appreciated. On the other hand, waterproof fabric such as neoprene are also going to be great to use for creating apparel. For a unique pet gift this Christmas, you might want to attach metal or red and green crystal studs to the collar of your dog or cat.
Gifts for Show Pets
Many show dog and cat lovers love bringing their pets on the road to be part of pet shows. One gift this Christmas would be to put personalized license plates or a license plate holder on the car with a message that caters to the breed or name of your dog. A first aid kit you can bring with you on the road is another Christmas gift that will benefit both pet and owner. In addition, a portable grooming kit and novelty scoops for poop are going to be convenient for traveling away from home.
