Fun Pet Gift Ideas

Updated on March 10, 2014

We Love Our Pets

There's no denying that pets are such a large part of our lives. People sometimes treat their animals just as well as they might treat a child! They are part of our families, so there is no doubt we want to show them love by giving them gifts.

Whether you are looking for gifts for a pet lover or just a gift for a pet, here are some fun, humorous ideas to get you thinking.

Snuggle-Worthy Kitties


Pet Attire

You can't deny that a furry creature all dressed up in cute attire is beyond adorable. If you want to dress your pet to the nines, give the gift of pet threads. Cute and a little bit humorous clothing can make any pet a star.

More and more people lately are even including their pets in their weddings! If you're looking for a 'bridal party gift' if you will, for a pet, then consider their pet wedding attire the ticket. So formal and beyond cute, they might just be the best dressed member of your bridal party.


Pet Lover Gift Basket

What if you're not shopping for your pet, instead you're shopping for a pet owner? We all know someone whose pets are their children. When this is the case, you want to give them something they'll love to share. Make a pet gift basket by including things suitable for their special friends.

For a cat, you can include things like catnip, cat dancer (this is like a long ribbon that cats can chase and play with), a laser pointer, cat toy balls, a play mouse, and other similar items.

For a dog, include things like dog treats, rawhide bones, Kong chew toys, a funny collar, or a personalized dog sweater.


Crazy Cool Toys

There are so many new types of toys out there for dogs and cats. Technology and innovation have sure brought us far. Here are some fun toys to look into when it comes to giving a gift to a pet or pet lover:

  • Babble Ball Talking Toy
  • Humunga Tongue Dog Toy
  • Puggs Dog Shoes
  • Flying Fun Interactive Cat Toy

Pet Gift Guide


Pet Cookies

It might not be silly but they sure are sweet. Nowdays, you can ship pretty much anything to pretty much anyone, including treats!

If you've got a sweet-tooth pet lover, then consider shipping them a pretty selection of animal decorated cookies. These come decorated with cats, dogs, and all kinds of animals that one might have as a pet. Not only will they enjoy the thoughtfulness of the pet shapes, but they'll also delight in the sweet treat.

Smart Pet Info

Lastly, make sure that your gifts are okay for the given pet. Make sure the pet doesn't have any allergies, and be sure that they will not be able to choke on any toys or treats that are unsuitable for their size or age.

Once all those things have cleared, you are free to give the gift of fun, laughter and love to any pet and/or pet owner! Happy shopping!

      I am getting a puppy in six weeks. It has been a long time since I had a dog. I might get myself a few doggie gifts for the new addition to the family. Thanks for the ideas.

      I just love the photos in this Hub! I especially like the dog tie and the gift baskets. I have several friends (and their pooches) who would be so happy to receive these gifts. Thanks!
