The holiday season is usually the time of year for gathering with loved ones and fun festivities. But sometimes, finding the right gift for pet lovers can be challenging. At LifeLine, we’ve got you covered! We’ve compiled our first-ever pet lovers holiday gift guide: our list of meaningful gifts for pet lovers with some gifts that also give back to LifeLine, saving more pet lives.
2. WAG-A-LOT Gift Card
Looking for that perfect gift for pet parents on your list who travel but can’t bring their dogs along? Get them a gift card to WAG-A-LOT, where their pup can vacation simultaneously! Pups spend their days playing with friends in spacious supervised play areas then sleep at night in cozy overnight dens on raised beds. Gift cards do not expire and are good towards daycare, boarding, grooming and retail at any of their 3 Atlanta Metro locations.
3. Custom Pet Collar or Tag
The holidays are a busy time of year! Make sure that pets have up-to-date ID tags. Shop Divas and Dudes Collar Co and create custom collars for all occasions that will keep your pet stylish (and easily recognizable)!
4. Pet Adoption Gift Certificate
Give the ultimate gift of a new best friend! A LifeLine adoption gift certificate is a great gift for pet lovers. Your friend can use this gift certificate at any LifeLine location when they are ready to adopt. Don’t have a pet in mind? You can also sponsor an adoption fee for one of our shelter pets in need of a loving home! A great gift in someone’s honor.
5. All-Natural Dog Treats
Want to be the favorite aunt or uncle who spoils their furry niece or nephew with the very best treats? Shop delicious dog treats from Big Daddy Biscuits! A long-time supporter and LifeLine partner, Big Daddy Biscuits is a local Atlanta company that handmakes treats with fresh ingredients that are locally and sustainably farmed.
6. Dog DNA Test
LifeLine was gifted 10 DNA kits to learn more about some of the animals in our care this year. Get your very own from Embark or Wisdom Panel to tell your loved one everything they ever wanted to know about their best friend’s breed, genetic traits, and health! You can even snag some great deals and discounts right before the holidays.
7. Custom Apparel & Accessories
Do you know someone who wishes they could bring their pet everywhere? Check out shops like Pop Your Pup that create custom apparel and accessories with your pet’s face on it! Now your friends can bring their pets with them “wear-ever” they go.
8. A Big Throw Blanket
‘Tis the season to be cozy! Colder weather means more snuggle time. A big sherpa blanket from Target or reversable plush throw from Amazon make wonderful options. As long as it’s big and warm enough to fit everyone in the family, a throw blanket is the coziest gift for pet lovers this holiday season. Maybe even throw in an extra one just for the pets! And if you shop Amazon, be sure to visit our LifeLine wishlists to see what our shelters need most any time of year.
Let’s get cooking this holiday season. Do you know someone who loves spending time in the kitchen (and whose pet is always waiting at their feet while they do)? Give the gift of yummy recipes! Purina put together a digital recipe book for humans inspired by favorite cat dishes. The Dodo also compiled a list of favorite recipe books for dogs. These are sure to make your two-legged AND four-legged friends happy.
10. LifeLine Tribute Wall Plaque
A pet’s memory lasts forever. LifeLine’s tribute wall is located in our Community Animal Center. Give the gift of a beautiful tribute that will honor a cherished pet and also gives back to the thousands of pets in need at the shelters and in our community.
11. Custom Pet Portraits
Pets deserve a spot on the family gallery wall without having to always wear a matching flannel. Instead, surprise a loved one with a custom portrait of their four-legged family member.
12. Stocking Stuffers
What do you get the pet parent who has it all, including everything on this list? You can never go wrong with a stocking “stuffie”. A brand new stuffed toy like Lamb Chop for dogs or Plush Mice for cats will keep them happy and occupied while everyone else is opening their gifts this holiday season.
