Trendy Gifts for Pets and Pet Lovers

Breed-Specific Gifts

The gift of someone's favorite breed is sure to be appreciated.

Breed pride appears to be at an all-time high, with everything from home decor to accessories to clothing and more. If you're buying for a Boxer buff, you can't go wrong with this Christmas-y iLove My Boxer Christmas pillow from iLeesh ($29.99) — and, yes, it comes in other breeds.

This collar will go perfectly with something in your home, won't it?

If you like that, then you should also take a look at a Halogen cashmere crewneck sweater ($98 at Nordstrom), which showcases a truly fashionable Frenchie. And though undies might be a bit of a, ahem, cheeky gift, we think any Labrador lover will be thrilled with Dogs With Antlers boxers from J.Crew ($18.50).

Whimsical and Stylish Pet Products

For too many years, we opted for pet products — bowls, collars, toys, etc. — that were functional but far from reflective of our own personal style. But not anymore!

Complement the decor of a coastal home with the Capri dog bowl collection from Unleashed Life ($30-$47).And we can't write about whimsical style without bringing up Gwen Gear. The company specializes in dog and cat collars guaranteed to make you smile, such as the new Marin Blue owl dog collar ($33).

Made in the USA and Eco-Friendly

Most any dog will dig a box full of squeaky toys.

What more is there to say? We all love supporting American companies, so why not do so when holiday shopping for your pets? The Can Toy from Wag More Bark Less ($10.99-$19.99) is a cute, durable treat toy that's sustainable, nontoxic and made in the USA.

Sticking with the eco-friendly theme, we've got P.L.A.Y.'s Santa's Little Squeakers ($37.90 for a five-piece gift set). They're covered in fun patterns like snowflakes, fir trees and ugly holiday sweaters, and are stuffed with the company's eco-friendly PlanetFill polyfiber. Though P.L.A.Y. products aren't necessarily made entirely in the United States, all designs are created by artists in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York.

Internet-Famous Pets

We all have our favorite Internet-famous pets, and this seems like the right time of year to celebrate them in a big way. Kids ages 5 to 95 will love Gund's Pusheen plush toy ($23.99), and this list wouldn't be complete without something fun — er, terrible — from Grumpy Cat, like a set of four coasters ($8.95).
