The holiday is fast approaching, so here are some good gift ideas that your pet is sure to enjoy.

Yep, it’s that time of year again. By: foundanimalsfoundation

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and many of you will be giving your pets something special.

There are so many holiday-themed pet gifts that it makes my head spin — tons of lovey-dovey, heart-shaped this or that for Baxter or Mr. Fluffmeister. But not all traditional gifts are safe. With food or treats, for example, ingredients such as chocolate, xylitol and grapes can be toxic to cats and dogs.

Below, you’ll find 9 safe (and fun) Valentine’s gift ideas.

1. Catnip Pickle

Category: Toys

First, we’ll mix it up with something that’s not pink or red — the bright green catnip pickle toy. It’s a soft green pickle filled with aromatic catnip that will have your kitty chasing, grabbing and going nuts.

2. “Kiss Me” Hoodie

Category: Clothes

If you’re still feeling the effects from a cold winter or just love to dress up your pets, a new Valentine’s Day outfit isn’t hard to find. This hoodie is lightweight and perfect for walks; it comes in 6 sizes and is almost half off from The Sassy Pup.


3. Heart Bowl

Category: Bowls & Dishes

Although food and water may just be daily ho-hum necessities, give it some flair with heart-themed bowls and dishes. This heart bowl is available from Amazon (affiliate link).

4. Posh Pink Tent

Category: Pet Beds

Is your pet’s pad in need of an upgrade? Or perhaps your pet is like mine — I get a new bed and she sleeps everywhere but there. I think it’s the bed, so I buy another. Well, here is a fantastically frilly one for Valentine’s Day.
If you like feathers, this posh bed fits the bill.

5. Valentine’s Treat Box

Category: Treats

Oh so scrumptious and delicious — what pet could say no? There are treats you can buy or make yourself to spoil your pet with something special. If you don’t have time to bake, order it! Pictured here is the Valentine’s treat box from Healthy Hound Bakery.

7. Tagg: The Pet Tracker

Category: Pet Trackers

This gift works for the benefit of you and your pet. You get peace of mind knowing your pet can be found, and your pet gets a better chance at coming home if lost or stolen. We used and reviewed the Tagg device and give it 4 paws up.

8. Pamper Your Pet

Category: Grooming

Schedule a trip to the groomer for a bath, ear cleaning or nail trim. Your pet will feel and smell better — and you get a break.

Find a Groomer is a good place to get started. I entered my ZIP code and found a groomer minutes away from my home. Some groomers will come to you. Many will also happily use Valentine-themed bandanas or bows to celebrate the season of love. Ask in advance about what pets and types they will groom.

9. Time

Yes, time is a gift. Your pet loves it, you’ll feel better afterward and it’s free. Play with toys, go to the park, chase some string or just take a midday nap with your dog or cat. Don’t forget to turn off your posting-tweeting-liking electronic monsters so you won’t get distracted.
