The Holidays are around the corner, and we all know how overwhelming gift shopping can be. But we find it exciting when we find a pet parent on our gift list! It's an opportunity to seek out fun gifts for their four-legged family members.
We thought long and hard about what us Freshpet parents would want under this year, and put together this list of ideas for you to consider when buying gifts for your friends and family (or maybe even yourself!).
For the Techie
is great for both cat or dog parents who want to stay connected to their pets even when they're not home. Petcube is a remote wireless pet camera that keeps a watchful eye at home while an app allows to check in on them. And with added features like sound so you can hear each other, and a laser pointer for play time, pet parents can feel less guilty about having to leave the house.
For the Health Conscious
Whistle's Dog Activity Monitor
keeps tabs on a dog's activity level plus how much rest they're getting. It's a great way to make sure they're staying healthy and fit. Set goals, track progress, log food intake and record medication, in order to keep good habits.
And good fitness habits should be accompanied by a good diet. Fresh, all natural meals are the best way to keep a pet's energy up. And just like you would bring a dish to the host of a Holiday party, you can always bring a healthy dish for the pet's too!
Consider bringing Freshpet's newest recipe, Fresh From the Kitchen
, a home-cooked meal with shredded chicken, spinach and cranberries for dogs. Or a dish for cats like Roasted Meals Chicken and Beef
recipe with carrots and spinach.
For the Design Lovers
We're all for West Paw Design
's cozy Bumper Beds
for both dogs and cats. They're extra fluffy and it's shape lends to curling up for nap time. With all the color and fabric options, your bound to find something to match someone's interior style.
This Pyramid Cat Home
from Love Thy Beast
is also a fun option for cat parents who want a place for their cat to nap and play. It's made out of 100% recyclable cardboard and is easy to assemble. Some of our Freshpet cats have put it to the test and give it the paw of approval.
For the Outdoorsy
Lot's of time outside? Consider a jacket. For technical gear, we think Ruffwear
. The K-9 Overcoat
is ideal for colder days. A fleece interior for warmth, and a wind + water-resistant fabric to lock out harsh weather.
We also love Billy Wolf
and their Rupert Waterproof Jacket
. It's reversible with plaid wool on one side and waxed canvas on the other. Their tie-on bandanas
are also perfect for some added style.
Anyone can always use a leash!
's Funston leash
, you get simplistic style and functionality. It's tangle-proof and weather-proof, with a coating that will keep your leash "soggy-free" on rainy days. Also the Durable Cordura nylon handle gives more grip and security on walks.
