It’s that time of year again! The holidays are here, and you’re beginning to search for ideas for Christmas gifts for the special someones in your life. And, of course, high on that list is a gift for your pup… or at least for the dog-lover(s) in your life.

Well, look no further.

I’ve compiled a list of great holiday gift ideas for dogs and their hoomans, so shopping is made easy for you! Not to mention, there are even some great discount codes down there saving you some cash.

So, without further ado, I give you The Holiday Shopping Guide for the Dog (or Dog-Lover) in Your Life!

Gifts for the Dog-Lovers

1. A Wisdom Panel DNA Test

If you have a dog owner with a rescue pup in your life, look no further than this excellent gift idea! DNA tests are cool, and when they’re divulging information regarding your dog, they become even cooler. 

We did the Wisdom Panel DNA tests on both Isabella and Penelope after adopting them, and it was so cool to learn what breeds they are both comprised of. 


2. A New Tee from allyouneedisdogs

This Etsy shop is owned by a friend of mine, and I love her t-shirts. The tees are high-quality, don’t shrink, and have super cute sayings. 

My personal favorite is the “blessed and dog obsessed” tee, but you really can’t go wrong with one of these as a gift. 


3. The Aquapaw Pet Bathing Tool

The Aquapaw makes an excellent stocking stuffer! You can find them on Amazon for under $20, and they make bath time so much easier on dog pawrents. It eliminates the need for rinsing with a cup while holding the dog in the tub which, all dog owners know, sounds so much easier than it is.

If you want to go above and beyond when it comes to bath time gifts, throw the PamperPaw into their stocking too for the ultimate combo. 


4. The Black + Decker Handheld Vacuum 

Fortunately, Bella and Penny aren’t huge shedders, but if you have a friend or family member whose dog sheds a lot, they will love you for this gift! This handheld vacuum makes spot cleaning so much easier. This vacuum is especially a life-saver in the spring when the weather starts getting warmer, and those winter coats have to go somewhere.

5. A Kurgo Car Seat Cover

Kurgo has a variety of car seat covers to choose from so there’s one for every car, and they’re all excellent quality and wash up well. We’ve had ours for years, and it’s been a game-changer. 


Gifts for the Dogs

1. A New Leash from Sleepy Cotton Co. 

If you’ve followed Isabella + Penelope for a while, you already know how much I love these leashes. Not only are the leashes cute, but Sleepy Cotton Co. backs such a great cause and creates all products animal-cruelty free.

If your pup or the dog-lover in your life is due for a new leash, you should scoop one of these up. Plus, you can get 10% off your order using our code: isabellaandpenelope10


2. A Barkbox Subscription or Toys from Bark Shop

A subscription to BarkBox really is the gift that keeps on giving. Each month, the dog in your life will receive a box with two bags of treats, two high-quality toys, and one miscellaneous item (either another toy or treat). 

I’ve been signed up for BarkBox for several years now, and it’s much cheaper than going to the store to stock up on more treats and toys. Not to mention, the themes are so fun. 

Sign-up using our referral link, and you can get your first box free.

And if you’re not looking for a subscription, you can still get special toys and treats from the BarkShop. All the same uniquely themed items, just without the subscription. 


3. A New Collar or Bandanas from Stella Mae & Co. 

If it’s time for a new collar or you want some new bandanas to dress up your pup, check out Stella Mae & Co. Isabella + Penelope’s grandma runs this shop, but we’re not biased - her stuff is fantastic! 

Each collar and bandana is created from 100% cotton fabrics and handsewn by my mother. With tons of different styles and prints available, you’re bound to find some cute gift ideas. 

Plus, take 15% off using our code: ISABELLAPENELOPE15


4. A New Treat Cannister From Amici Pets

I love this treat cannister from AmiciHome! I don’t know if it’s the donuts or what, but it’s so cute, and it makes such a great gift. And if the donuts aren’t your thing, Amici has tons of different options.

5. A New Dog Bed from Crate & Barrel

Last, but certainly not least, how about a new dog bed? 

These futon beds from Crate & Barrel are amazing! The beds are easy to wash, come in cute prints to match any room of your house, and are super plush, so they’re comfortable for your dog.
