It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And of course we wanted to help you in case you had any last minute shopping to do for the animal lover in your life. So, without further ado, here are our Pawliday Picks for 2013!
1. Schmitty The Weather Dog! This adorable book combines a cute Yorkie with science. The illustrations are great, and the story is perfect for kids of all ages. Schmitty, the star of the book, is a real Yorkie who does the weather with Ron Trotta. Be sure to check out their YouTube channel to see them in action.
2. Santa Hamster. Yes, an hamster wearing a Santa hat! Could it be much cuter? Well actually no, but you can find this and other adorable animal themed goodies in the Bubble Dog Etsy shop. Oh, FYI, I bought myself this hamster pillow for a pre-Christmas gift and it is even more adorable in person.
3. Rescue Chocolate. For the chocolate lover in your life, Rescue Chocolate is the perfect gift! Not only is the chocolate delicious, it also helps animals in need. As the name suggests, they support animal rescues. They have quiet a variety of flavors that are sure to please anyone on your list.
4. The PawNosh Pet Bowl. Made of recycled glass, this bowl is more than just gorgeous. It’s heavy and will last a lifetime. Not only that, it is made in the USA. Yes it is a bit more expensive than your average pet bowl, but this is not your average pet bowl. Did you know that this bowl started as a Kickstarter project? That product was fully funded, and now you can order bowls via their website.
5. Holiday Toys from PetSmart. We got these two adorable toys from PetSmart (they provided them to us for our review) and Baby has loved them ever since they arrived. They are from the Martha Stewart line and are specifically made for dogs who love a little comfort. Snugly and soft, they are perfect for the anxious dog who wants a bit of security. They are also super cute! They have a wide variety of toys for dogs and cats (and even smaller animals can join the fun).
6. The Wrapping Dog Scarf. This is on my personal holiday wishlist. It’s cute. It’s functional. Oh, and did I mention that it comes from Shop For Shelters? Feel great about buying this gift because part of the money will help shelter pets in need. It is also made in the USA, which I love.
And may we suggest some fun titles from the Cartoon Network, so you can stay warm and cozy indoors with your pet! Our pup Baby loves to watch Cartoon Network (seriously, when it’s on she can’t stop looking at it), so we think these are a great fit for people and pets!
Our picks: Adventure Time: The Complete First Season, Adventure Time: The Complete Second Season,
Regular Show: The Complete First and Second Season, Adventure Time: Jake the Dad, and of course, Robot Chicken: Season 6! Find these and other great Cartoon Network Shows titles on Amazon.
We hope our picks help make your “Pawlidays” bright! Enjoy!
