Easter Baskets For Pets ~ Cuz They Are Our Kids Too !

Updated on August 19, 2014

What Do You Put In A Pet Easter Basket ?

Pet Easter baskets are all the rage this year because people have realized that our pets are our kids, too ! Whether you make them for your own pet, or your friend's or relatives pets, the question is always the same. What do I put in it ? You don't want to put the same old tired rawhide bones, catnip mice or birdseed bell in your basket. You need some fresh, trendy ideas for pet Easter gifts. Well you have come to the right place. I have dozens of unique ideas that will help you build the best pet Easter basket, ever !

Putting together a pet Easter basket can be a fun family activity, starting with shopping for the contents, then choosing the basket and finally arranging the contents and planning the actually giving. With so many people watching their diet, it may not be very welcome to give a gift basket full of unhealthy, fattening treats. However, a basket of treats for their pet is always welcome. It shows your care not only for your friend but also for one of the things they love most in the world: their pet !

Easter Baskets for Cats

There Are Many Unique Choices For Cats

There are literally thousands of gift choices for Cat Easter Baskets. Don't go the same old route with balls with bells and catnip mice. There are much more original and unusual gifts out there that you can put in your avant-garde basket. Below are a few suggestions that would make great, innovative gifts to fill the most awesome Feline Easter Baskets. I especially like the pirate cat collar with the matching skull and crossbones ID tag ! ARRrrrrrrr, mateys, any self respectin cat would love that !

Easter Baskets for Dogs

Awesome Gift Choices !

Being Man's (and Woman's) best friend, Doggie Easter Baskets have become very popular. Kids make them for their own pet, which is a fun activity for them. Many people make them for other people's dogs, perhaps including items that the dog owner would not buy for themselves, or just to show your friends and relatives that you love their dog as much as they do. These are only a few of the reasons that Easter Baskets for dogs have become so popular. When choosing the gifts for your basket, make sure that you match the items to the dog you are giving it to, such as age, coat type, and temperament. Below are some suggestions that I have found to be great in canine Easter Baskets. There are many more, you just have to use your imagination !

Unusual Dog Gifts - All Kinds From Toys to Treats

Rabbit, Guinea Pig, Hampster, Gerbel, Rat and Mice Easter Baskets

They May Be Small But We Love Them Big !

Who deserves an Easter Basket more than a rabbit ? It's about time that we gave something back to the Easter Bunny, eh ? There are also tons of cute gifts for piggies, hamsters and the myriad of other small and cute pets that we keep, such as rats, chinchillas, ferrets, mice and gerbils. Small mammals love to play and it is healthy for them to have proper furniture and toys in their cage and play space. After spending some time looking around, I have come up with some very fun and unique gifts to put in Easter Baskets for our small, furry friends.

Easter Baskets for Reptiles

Reptile Owners LOVE These !

Even more than birds, reptiles are truly usually forgotten when it comes to holiday gift giving. Many people don't like reptiles, such as iguanas, snakes and such. Owners of such pets are usually pretty tired of people saying "ewwwwwwww, why would you what THAT for a pet?" Imagine how thrilled they will be to receive a gift showing some love to their mostly unpopular pet. I bet they smile for the rest of the day.....and then some. It is easier than you might think to make an Easter basket for a reptile pet, I recently made a Valentine's basket for a friend that has a tank of geckos. (and not one of them offered me a break on car insurance!) He was a happy camper and spent an hour rearranging the tank to include the gifts the basket contained. I have a few suggestions below to help get you started on things you may want to buy for a reptile Easter Basket.
