Woof, what a year! More than ever, we’ve needed (wo)man’s best friend by our side: doling out extra snuggles, tolerating noisy Zoom calls during naptime, and not judging us for stress-eating Thin Mints by the sleevefull in a new tradition we like to call “breakfast dessert.” The holiday season is the perfect time to reward your pooch for their loyalty. Enter: Our 2020 gift guides. We’re kicking off this series with ultra-cute stocking stuffers for dogs. (Check out our 2020 Gifts to Keep your Dog Busy, too.)
Without further a-doo:
1. Dog Playing Cards
Technically this is more of a gift for yourself, given your pup’s lack of opposable thumbs. Our exclusive, limited-edition deck of cards, benefiting Pets For Vets, may even feature your pup’s face on our ace (enter by Nov. 17). Act now, pup! We’re only selling these stocking stuffers for dog owners thru Nov. 22 so you can get ‘em in time for the howlidays.
Get it from Sidewalk Dog for $12.50.
2. Foodie Squeaky Toy
Taco ‘bout cute! Perfect for any four-legged foodie, ZippyPaws’ squeaky toys come in a variety of tantalizing options: sushi, steak, and more.
Get it on Amazon for $7.20.
3. Lamb Dog Treats
A stocking without lamb treats? Baa-humbug. Sojos is known for mouth-watering snacks made with healthy, ultra-simple ingredients.
Get ‘em at Petco for $9.99.
4. Coconut Lime Waterless Shampoo
Waterless shampoo may seem like a boring present—’til your dog realizes they’ll never have to get in the B-A-T-H again. Best. Gift. Ever.
Get it on Amazon for $5.97.
5. Handmade Felt Ornament
Felt ornaments are a super pup-ular stocking stuffer for dogs, and for good reason. They’re irresistible. We’re smitten by these Greyhounds; a simple search will turn up other breeds, too.
Get it on Etsy for $10.
6. Lump of Coal Dog Toys
Who’s a good boy? Surely not every dog. (My pandemic pup still owes me a new sofa.) Give the naughty dog on your list one more thing to chew up in 2020 with these plush-stuffed lumps of coal.
Get it at Petco for $4.99.
7. Custom Dog Stocking
Finally, if your dog still needs the stocking itself, we ruv these customizable cuties. Choose from a number of fonts and two stylish buffalo plaid options.
Get it on Etsy for $23.
