Are you looking for the best Christmas gift ideas for your pet? You can surprise them with something huge during Christmas day itself or put up a stocking where you can tuck in little treats for 12 days. Whether you have a dog, cat, bird, fish or a combination of several animals, they will love these excellent gifts!
15 Christmas Gift Ideas Your Pet Will Love
1. Homemade Dog Treats
You can buy dog treats at the pet store any time of the year, but this Christmas gift is unique if you made it yourself! Create dog cookies, donuts, cinnamon rolls or even eggnog your dog can enjoy this season. They’ll love munching on the treats you made yourself.
You can also make a DIY treats jar to store your homemade cookies for later consumption. Not only will your pooch love them, but you can also be sure that they’re eating dog-friendly food as well!
2. Ball Launchers
The iFetch Too came out recently, and it’s making dogs and dog-owners super excited. Since it’s Christmas, you can splurge a little for this incredible toy. It’ll keep your dog occupied even when you don’t have the energy to play with him.
3. Tacky Knitted Sweater
Christmas is a time for family and friends to gather in their tacky knitted sweaters. It’s only fair that your pet gets one this year, too. You can go the traditional red and green motif, or be more adventurous with the colors. You can even match your sweater with your pet’s.
4. Handmade Dog Toy
Christmas gift ideas would not be complete without a dog toy on the list. Instead of buying one, try making it yourself! If you have old clothes lying around that you want to get rid off, turn them into a handmade dog toy to give as a gift this Christmas. The great thing about making these toys at home, you can also give some to your dog’s best buds! Better yet, embrace generosity even more by donating the dog toys you made to the local adoption center.

Challenge your dog (or cat) with an interactive feeding bowl. Not only will your pet enjoy looking for food in the bowl’s nook and crannies, but it will also stop them from gobbling their food. Consuming too much food can lead to bloat in dogs, which could become deadly.
You can buy a fun, interactive feeding bowl from Amazon for about $10.
6. Dog Water Fountain
There are water bottles and bowls that your pet can drink from throughout the day. However, how can you be sure that he’s getting fresh, clean water every time? Get them a water fountain that they can step on to drink from. This cool product from Diamond Way gives fresh water everytime your pet steps on the pedal. You just have to teach them how to step on the pedal to get water. Then you can sit back and enjoy the day.
Get it from Amazon for $41.99. You can also have it gift wrapped!
7. Dog Umbrella
Have ever been excited about to go out for a walk with your pet only to discover that it’s drizzling outside? Get a dog umbrella for Christmas! With this transparent umbrella from LesyPet, you won’t have to worry about walking your dog in the rain. It’ll keep them nice and dry. Just make sure you bring your umbrella or raincoat, too.
Get the LesyPet umbrella for $16.59 from Amazon. It’s perfect for toy dogs like Pomeranians, Terriers and can fit medium sized dogs up to 19″ in length.
8. Cat Tunnel Maze
Cats love stuffing themselves into boxes and small spaces. Make their dream come true this Christmas with a tunnel maze! Whether you have one cat or a dozen, a tunnel maze will surely entertain them to no end. Kittens will especially love playing around with it. This maze from Amazon is portable and can quickly be set up, so you can carry it around with you.
9. Cat Tree
If you have several cats, getting just one scratching post might not be enough. Show your feline pets some love this Holiday season with a cat tree, complete with hiding places and several scratch posts! Amazon has several cat trees for sale, like this cute one from Go Pet Club.
You can make one on your own as well! Just make sure you have several nooks and crannies, scratching posts and toys to keep your pets entertained.
10. Kitty Sack
Cats can be territorial on top of loving to snuggle in enclosed spaces. That’s why your cat will like this Kitty Sack from PAWZ Road. It’s self-warming and has crinkle paper inside to keep them warm. Getting one will keep them comfortable, especially if you like bringing your pet on trips. Nevertheless, they can still use this inside the house.
11. Interactive Led Light Pointer
There are more great Christmas gift ideas on this list! If you have a hyperactive kitten that loves running around, clinging to things, and disturbing your work, then get them a cute led light pointer. This paw-shaped design from Ruri’s looks more fun, compared to the usual penlights. Your kitty will love chasing after that little red dot.
12. Bird Activity Center
Splurge a little for your beloved pet Parakeet or Budgie. This 3-level bird activity center by BirdsComfort will make your pet’s Christmas the merriest! It has two swings, spiral stairs and a beaded, half-round ladder with an overall height of 28 inches.
If you’re not ready to spend $210 on a play gym yet, try getting a smaller one instead. You can still get a one-level activity center for $16-$48.
13. Foraging Toy
Like the interactive feeding bowls for dogs and cats, birds can enhance their thinking skills and be entertained with a foraging toy. Fill it with seeds and treats and let your pet look for ways to eat them. It’s especially great for birds with high energy. You can get foraging toys in clear acrylic, cylindrical or even in carousel forms.
14. Bird Seed Wreath
Another great way to show your love for your avian pet this Christmas season is to create a handmade birdseed wreath. You can shape it into a Christmas wreath, and even add some bird cookies as ornaments. Or, shape it into a little Christmas tree to hang inside your pet’s cage. He’ll love it!
