the cutest gifts for pets and pet parents for presents this year! by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth #gifts #giftguide #pets #presents #christmas #holidays #ideas

Around here we are allll about our cat, Thomas!

If you’re new here, Thomas is basically our second child. So it’s only natural for us to spoil him like crazy for Christmas, too.

Let’s just say Christmas is as exciting for him as it is for Gwen since his favorite thing in the entire world is to attack the Christmas tree every 5 seconds (see photo above).

Since we realize not everyone is just a cat lover, we put together a gift guide for pets that covers a little of everything (sans reptiles, sorry!). I literally want to use this color block food bowl for myself, haha!…

Also, if you love your parents who happen to be plant lovers, check out our Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Gifts & DIY’s For Plant Lovers, best for mom with a green thumb.

We’ve rounded up all our favorite cat and dog toys, accessories, and beyond!

  1. These are some really great gift ideas for those with pets. Some people treat their pets like their own children – so this would be so special.

  2. I adore the getting my puppies Xmas gifts… omg the little tent kills me!!! I’m getting so many dog gifts for my little chunky so excited.

  3. I love how beautiful all of these items are! I’m a sucker for aesthetic and I don’t think that things have to be crazy colors just because it’s for pets.

  4. Gosh, I have enough presents to buy without buying for pets too… I don’t think my fish will notice though, lol!!

  5. LOL no lizard gifts? Bummer, that’s the only kind anyone in our famliy has these days (my bro married into a couple of them), thanks to the fur/dander allergies we’ve all developed to everything else!
