For the four-legged animal in your life who requires multiple walks a day, thinks nothing of gnawing on your new slippers, refuses to play nice with the mailperson—and loves you more than anything (even chasing after squirrels).
N.B.: You can use this list also for the doting dog parent on your list.
A Cushy Nest Above: Does this come in queen size? Mungo & Maud’s Igloo Bed, stuffed with downy polyfill, guarantees a sound slumber for your canine love. With a 14.5-inch diameter, it’s sized to fit small breeds (think a chihuahua or Pomeranian); $265. A Soft Travel Bed Above: This is not the first time we’ve recommended Cloud 7’s travel beds. We’ve long admired the German brand’s simple design and quality materials. Its machine-washable Tweed Travel Bed comes in two sizes; $106 and $136 at Amara. Something to Chew On Above: Tuck an antler chew into your dog’s stocking. Biting on one helps remove tartar and plaque builup. The Antler Chews from Blue Ridge Bath & Body Co. are sourced from antlers that are naturally shed by deer every winter in the Rocky Mountains; $8.88 each. Toys You Can Both Love Above: There is no reason to have unattractive dog toys. Harry Barker make some great, well-designed options, including these squeaking Shark Canvas Dog Toys with eco fiberfill ($12 and $14) and the Cotton Rope Tug & Toss Dog Toy (from $8). A Wooden Puzzle Above: Dog & Co’s Cheeky’s Challenge Treat Game is constructed from solid wood in upstate New York. It’s designed to be both a fun mental and physical activity for your dog; hide treats under pegs or sliders and marvel as she figures out how to get to them; $62. A Cool Dog Tag Above: Designed exclusively for Mr. Dog by Brooklyn-based Gauge NYC, the Brass Initial Dog Tag is available in every letter of the alphabet; $60. Stylish Bandanas Above: Billy Wolf makes bandanas just for the canine set. Pictured are the Davis Bandana and the Beau Bandana; $25 each. An All-Weather Coat Above: The Wagwear Colorblock Rainbreaker protects dogs from rain and wind. It comes in multiple sizes; starting at $48 at Dog & Co. A Necessary Accessory Above: The modern, minimalist Poop Bag Carrier features a serrated opening for easy bag dispensing. The soft holder comes in multiple colors (shown are tan and gray); $12. Ceramic Dog Bowls Above: Dog bowls are on display all the time; why not make sure they’re nice to look at? We especially like Farmhouse Pottery’s Laurel Dog Bowls; $48 each.
