Fluffy fur, wagging tails and slobbery kisses. Dogs truly are man’s best friend. While it’s easy to remember gifts for family and friends over the holidays, sometimes your pup can get overlooked in the hustle and bustle of the season. Even though you’re dog will be more than satisfied with an extra-long belly rub or trip to the park, it’s easy to shower your pet in love with a doggie gift basket. Seriously, it comes together in minutes! Here’s how to put it together:
Step 1: Find the perfect dog gifts
From squeaky toys, to larger-than-life bones and even a cozy blankie, we rounded up a few of our favorite products that our dogs can’t get enough of. You can even whip up some homemade cheddar or beefy treats for an extra-special touch.
Step 2: Bring it all together
Once you have all the toys and treats in order, it’s time to assemble. Ditch buying a bag or basket and opt for using your pup’s new bowl or bed to hold the rest of their gifts! Remove all tags, wrappers and other packaging from your gifts and arrange the goodies. Feel free to add a bow or ribbon to the basket, if you like, but make sure to remove it before giving your pup their basket.
Step 3: Show your dog some lovin’
After gifting your furry friend their multitude of gifts, but sure to take some extra-time for lots of pets, treats and play!
