Thread: Christmas Gift for your pet

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Christmas Gift for your pet

    Hi, have you ever thought to buy your pet a gift in Christmas time? I have some tips for you

    If that person is a cat lover, though, it is something you are probably aware of however often you may see them. There is every chance that choosing a cat lover gift of some sort will be well received.

    Cat lover gifts fall into two categories. The first is something the cat itself (or themselves) can use; the second is something for the cat owner which is adorned by something feline.
    It is probably better to opt for a gift that belongs and stays in the home. For example:

    Cat Blanket

    There are some very warm, comfortable and attractive cat blankets around, and they make nice cat lover gifts. We all know how cats love to curl up in front of a fire in the winter; with a warm fleecy blanket to lie on, they will be in heaven. You can add a personal touch to this gift by having the blanket personalized with the cat's name. The cat won't care about that, but it's a nice touch for the owner's pleasure.

    Cat Basket

    Something a little bit more elaborate as a cat lover gift is a cat basket. I am referring here to a basket to sleep in, not something that is simply for carrying a cat to the vet. Remember, though, that cat's can be very choosy. It would not be surprising if the cat turned it's nose up at a new basket, at least initially. If you spend a lot of money on the basket, then that can be a disappointment, even if the cat owner is very appreciative.

    Cats, though, have moods. One day it may take to the basket, especially if you tell it not to get inside!

    There are, of course, other things you can buy for the cat itself. Small toys, food treats (fresh salmon may go down quite well), but what is it in the home that cats enjoy most? Sleeping. That means that a cat blanket or type of bed could be a popular gift. We all know, however, that the cat will be the one to decide if they want to use it or not. Never mind, the cat lover recipient will appreciate your gift.

    Gifts For The Cat Owner

    The choice of gifts that are cat related, and may be suitable for the cat lover, is much greater than for the cat itself. If you think about it, just about anything in the home could have a cat theme to it. Many of these gift items have cat pictures on, or are cat shaped.

    Some examples of what you can buy include plates, place mats, coasters, clocks, fridge magnets, ironing board covers, doorstops and a whole lot more. Many of these types of items will be appreciated by a cat lover as a gift.

    One good idea is to find a gift that you can personalise, with a picture of the owner's cat. If you have a digital camera, it should not be difficult to get a picture of the cat while visiting before Christmas, without arousing too much suspicion of what you're up to. Once you have the picture, then you can probable find somewhere to add that picture to mugs, place mats and other household items.


    If that person is a Dog lover
    It is possible to find just about anything with a dog motif – pajamas, mugs, t-shirts, statues, etc. – but that does not mean that your dog lover will appreciate any or all of these things. So, what should you get for a dog-lover?



    Before getting a gift for the dog, make sure that you know what sort of dog it is. For instance, a small dog will not be able to handle large toys or bones, and a small dog bones could pose a threat to a large dog. Also be aware that a puppy has different health requirements than an older dog. Depending on the ailments of an older dog, he may not be allowed to eat protein, may only be able to eat soft food, or might have other requirements that must be followed. A good dog gift is one that does not cause harm to the dog! Also, be ware that while a dog might love a toy that sings or beeps, his owner may not!


    So, what should you get for a dog? One great idea is to sign him up for a “stuffed animal of the month” club. Every month, the dog will receive a brand new stuffed animal, just in time to replace last month's old, ratty, and chewed-up one.
    Consider baking your own dog treats for the dog (again, be aware of the specific health guidelines that that particular dog might have to follow). There are great dog treat recipes on line or in doggie cookbooks that you can follow.


    Anyone wants to add another gift for your pet?

I was just asking DH what we can do special for them during the holidays. Any ideas. we give them canned food for thanksgiving and CHristmas but I want to do something more than just stockings this year!
    Wishing you many hot cocoa mornings and firesky nights throughout the new year!

    Elevated outside bed/cot

    I got my dog an elevated bed or cot for outside. The fabric allows water to pass thru, keeps her off the ground, keeps bugs off her. She loves it, out there most afternoons getting her sunbathing in.

    I was looking at some doggie beds today at big lots for Buddy Lee he sleeps on a blanket on hubby's side of the bed on the floor. I think he would enjoy a bed. Sassi sleeps on the loveseat at night. I guess she feels she needs to be close to the door in case someone tries to come in. Anyway we found a nice black bed for $20.00 today but we did not have that much between us. Fred's had some for a portion of that that I liked so we will go back there and check on them. he is a medium size dog. Bassett hound mix! Both my dogs are inside we are not allowed to have outside dogs and Buddy no longer likes his tie out lead for some reason.
