When shopping for gifts this Christmas, it’s important to remember the furry members of the family. Dogs bring us cheer every day of the year, so we should all do something special for them too! In fact, there’s no better way to show your love for the “good-est” dog of them all than through a holiday-themed gift, especially if it comes with a squeaker.
With the holiday spirit in mind, here are 7 great dog gifts for Christmas!
The Grinch stole Christmas and your dog’s adoration and attention. These toys—inspired by Dr. Seuss’ most famous curmudgeon character—are filled with surprises. From a bouncy “Santa Grinch” to a plush wrapped present that must be ripped open to reveal its contents, these toys aren’t just suitable for Seuss lovers. There’s also a durable rubber toy, “Home of the Whos,” that doubles as a treat dispenser and super chewer staple.
Ho, ho, ho and a box of new toys! With a plush gingerbread man and a crinkly, kissable mistletoe toy, there are handfuls of adorable options to choose from in this collection. Bark’s beautifully-designed Christmas toys are filled with cheer, as well as stuffing, squeakers, and spiky balls. For instance, with its multiple components, “Santa’s Jolly Cookie Jar” will keep dogs occupied all morning. Or, warm your pup up after a jaunt in the snow with a double-stuffed “Hazelmutt Latte” or a fluffy “Got Hot Toddy?” There’s a toy here on every dog’s Christmas list, guaranteed.
Can’t decide on which holiday-themed toy to buy for your little cutie? Bark (and Santa) understand. If your favorite family member has been extra good, consider splurging on this Bark “Season’s Treatings” bundle. It includes every Christmastime toy, as well as a handy container to store them in. Buying in bulk is also an excellent money-saving option for those handing out dog toys as gifts for other furry friends this year. (Cost: $169.)
At first glance, this bundle may seem like an odd choice for a present. Yet, while many dogs may enjoy the chaos and non-stop company of the holidays, more sensitive pups can get overwhelmed. Thus, this gift is the next best thing you can give to an anxious dog besides a trip to the doggie spa. With six long-lasting turkey chews, a distracting and delicious treat dispenser, and a bottle of CBD hemp oil, every dog can have his (holi-)day. (Cost: $49.)
Dogs might not understand the words, “Merry Christmas,” but they’ll pick up on the question “Want a (pumpkin spice) treat?” pretty quickly. Filled with rolled oats, honey, and real pumpkin, Bark’s crunchy “Pumpkin Spice Treats” celebrate the sweetest time of the year. After all, humans shouldn’t be the only ones snacking during the holidays. Still, if your pup isn’t a pumpkin lover, consider ordering a bag of molasses and bacon-flavored Bonfire Bites. Or, try stuffing Fido’s stocking with a box of “Yum In the Oven—Duck Cranberry” treats instead. (Cost: $4.50 to $5.)
For the dog who has everything, nothing but steak will do. This big and meaty chew is hand-trimmed and slow roasted for days, making it more tempting than even the Christmas ham atop the dining room table. For dogs that have been extra good this year, there’s also an eight-pack of steak chews that should last well into the new year. (Cost: $3 for one, $16.20 for 8.)
