If your family celebrates Christmas, woo doggie do we have some great ideas for getting your fur fam involved! Santa claws is coming to town, which means there's bound to be paw-resents under the tree... Okay, now that we've got our favourite puns out the way, let's get into Xmas celebrations the whole family, furry or not, can enjoy!
Stocking stuffers for your pets
We reckon Christmas gifts for your pets are a super cute way to bring them into the fold. Of course, your pet doesn't 'get' that it's Christmas, but if you're celebrating, they do get that there's plenty of energy in the home, maybe people coming in and out, lots of laughing and talking, the tantalising smells of roast dinners and sweet treats, and a flurry of excitement around the Christmas tree while wrapping paper goes flying.
Having a few little treats under the tree for your cat or dog can help keep them entertained and involved in these family memories. If you have smaller pets, like guinea pigs, you might want to get into the festive spirit with some treats and toys for them, too! No need to get your tinsel in a tangle; here are our fun and easy stocking stuffer ideas for pets.
Dog Christmas presents
Keep your goodest pal feelin' festive with interactive toys and delicious treats to get their tail wagging through every Xmas lunch, road trip or gift exchange.
