. 8 min read

With gatherings happening much more than last year, there's a lot to celebrate this time of year. If your to do list is getting long and you're feeling ovewhelmed by the long list of presents you need to buy, have no fear, Ollie is here to help. We've made a list of our best gift ideas for every pup and the people who love them no matter their interests and your budget - there's something on the list for everyone!


For ones who think every day is no bones day

For the pups (and their parents) who wish every day was no bones day, we recommend the coziest sleepwear, bedding and blankets so they can practice their good self care. Our pics for this year include...

Animals Matter Ali Jewel Puff & Cozy Waterproof Blanket

Let your pup relax into Animals Matter’s Ali Jewel Puff. It’s available in a variety of sizes and colors to suit anyone’s taste and decor. If you companion is on the older (or younger) side and accidents are a concern add this cozy waterproof blanket to make no bones days more comfortable while protecting your furniture.

CB2 Faux fur channel throw in oat

While this throw blanket is really for the humans, we can’t blame the dog for stealing it. The ultra soft faux fur makes this the perfect blanket to curl up together on the couch for a holiday movie marathon.

Printfresh flannel pajamas in Bagheera Flannel

Printfresh’s first foray into flannel is a great gift for the pet parent in your life. These warm and cozy pajamas are beautiful enough to be seen on those early (or not so early - hey, it’s the holiday season) dog walks.

For the one with the boundless energy

For those high energy pups (and their parents) gifts that engage their brains and bodies and support their needs on the go are gonna be your best bet. We suggest...

Mark & Graham Color Block Canvas Dog Tote

For the one who wants to carry their pup in style, this dog tote comes with an interior leash to secure an adventurous pup and a removable liner to keep them comfortable on the go. For total personalization, add their pup's name to the front.

Wild One Airline Compliant Pet Carrier

For the jet setting duo who prefers to take their adventures to the sky (or even a train) consider the Wild One Airline Compliant Pet Carrier. Available in three colors including a festive spruce this pet carrier will keep their pup safe in style! The bag also opens into a pup cabanna with an interior mat to help them relax on the road. Note that this carrier is best for pets under 16 pounds.

The North Face Shellista IV tall boot

These boots will keep their feet warm and cozy for all the best wintertime outdoor adventures. Whether they prefer to hit the trails or the hot chocolate stall at the winter market, they'll do so with warm and dry feet!

DogPACER Dog Treadmill

If the weather is too severe for adequate outdoor exercise, try the DogPacer Treadmill. It will keep your pup safe and engaged while they get in a workout. Just remember to have them check in with the vet before starting a new exercise program!

For the one who likes to hang in the kitchen

Since food is what we do, these pups and their humans have a special place in our hearts! For those who love to eat, drink, and cook, try...
