2021 Holiday Gifts to Surprise Your Favorite Dog and Cat Lovers

What gift do you get the pet lover who has everything?

The holidays are a time when we show appreciation for our friends and relatives with gifts. Of course, we want those to align with our loved ones' interests, hobbies, and lifestyles. Taking the time to tailor the gift to the person is one way in which we spread love and cheer during the holiday season.

And we all have a dog lover or a cat lover among our nearest and dearest. We may even have a pet fanatic, the person whose fur baby is everything to them. (Hey, there's no shame in that game.) And the fastest way to warm their heart this holiday is with a present that acknowledges the fuzzy love of their life. Whether that person is a parent, sibling, spouse or best friend, we've got ideas.

Holiday Gifts for Pet Lovers

Neato Robotics Vacuum For Pet Hair

Pets are such bringers of joy. They also bring fur, so an important arrow in the pet parent's quiver is a vacuum. This vacuum is called "D" because that's what it's shaped like. This design means that, unlike a round vacuum, it can reach into corners. As it intelligently navigates the home, it moves in straight lines, not a random pattern. This is a gift that will seriously upgrade your pet lover's quality of life. Voice control is available through Alexa.

The Dogs: Human Animals

Photographer Vincent Lagrange captures the soulfulness of dogs in the photos in this book. He learned techniques of portrait photography at the studio of his father, Marc, and uses those techniques to present an array of pictures that capture the essence of dogs of many breeds. This great gift for dog lovers will have your giftee coming to appreciate  their bond with their pet even more than they already do.

Kitnip Box

Here's another gift that will remind them of your thoughtfulness all year long, but this one's for cats. Once a month, you'll receive a box of feline magic to share with your cat. Inside will be yummy treats and interactive toys, wands and catnip goodies. The subscription comes in single and multiple cat varieties. And there's a perk sure to score you bonus points with your pal; part of your purchase price is donated to animal shelters and rescue organizations.
