10 Posh Gifts for Pampered Pets and Owners

It can be difficult to decide what to get for your favorite pets and pet lovers — even if money is no object — because we all really want to give the perfect thing.

The good news is that we’re here to help you (or your personal shopper) come up with the ideal lavish gift for the pet or person in your life who deserves some pampering this holiday season. We have even found a few gifts that are both luxurious and affordable. From $20 pet toys to $250 waste bag carriers to $4,500 doghouses, there are many fun items to consider.  

Though, of course, as with all the items in your pet's world, you need to keep an eye out to make sure there's nothing your pet could injure himself with or accidentally ingest. That means watching for stuffing being pulled out of pillows or buttons or other materials coming off clothes or furniture. And you should always supervise your dog or cat when he plays with toys and replace them when there is any wear or tear. Your pet is depending on you.   

Luxury Gifts for Pets and Pet Lovers

Kelly Wearstler Dog Houses
Kelly Wearstler Dog Houses

Doghouses don’t have to look like they belong in a "Peanuts" cartoon. These three abodes from celebrity designer Kelly Wearstler look more like pieces of fine art, although they are actually made of durable wood: Douglas fir (left), walnut (center) and ipe (right). Each house also features either Wearstler's signature burnished bronze kiss motif (left and center) or her burnished bronze sphere (right). And although each house also comes with a cushion upholstered in outdoor fabric, your dog will probably enjoy these more if you keep them inside your home. That way your pet can be warm, dry and stylish all at the same time. 

Kelly Wearstler Dog Houses, from $2,500 to $4,500.

Cat Mat for Yoga Cat Toy
FelineYogi Cat Mat for Yoga Cat Toy

Your kitty probably already observes you while you practice your sun salutations and Ujjayi breath, so why not give her a yoga mat of her own to enjoy alongside you? This feline yoga mat can be used as a scratcher, lounger and feeding station. Plus, there’s an attached catnip-stuffed toy made of sisal and natural twine for her to play with as well. Namaste indeed.

FelineYogi Cat Mat for Yoga Cat Toy, $24.99 at Etsy.

Bon Ton Waste Bag Carrier

Add a little sparkle to your (or your dog walker’s) daily outings with this waste bag carrier made of solid brass and metal alloy. Cleanup won’t seem like such a chore when you gingerly pull a plastic baggie out of the dazzling golden carrier attached to your leash.

Bon Ton Waste Bag Carrier, $250 at Neiman Marcus.

Yellow Jade Petunia Cat Water Fountain
Yellow Jade Petunia Cat Water Fountain

Cat owners know that kitties can be a little finicky about what they drink their water out of. A lot of times, a simple bowl just doesn’t cut it. That's why you'll be tempted to gift your favorite feline with this gorgeous ceramic fountain. The flowing water may appeal to your cat, and the fact that it’s easy to clean will probably appeal to you.

Yellow Jade Petunia Cat Water Fountain, $169 at Thirsty Cat Fountains.

Monarch Vegan Croc Collar

Everyone needs a little bling, including your dog. This handcrafted and hand-jeweled vegan "crocodile" collar comes in black or brown and features a row of three-carat hand-cut gems — either rubies or white sapphires — accented by one-carat white sapphires. Just keep in mind that your pup could accidentally scratch off and swallow the gems, so you should always supervise him when he’s rocking this spectacular collar.
