4 GIFTS FOR PETS BLOG HOP AND GIVEAWAY

WELCOME TO THE 4 GIFTS FOR PETS BLOG HOP AND GIVEAWAY !

Not sure what to get the pets for the holidays this year?  If you're anything like me, you probably end up with a bag full of irresistibly adorable dog toys and maybe a giant chew stick, but not much else.  When it comes to the humans on my Christmas gift list I put a lot of thought and planning into it.  For my dogs, not so much. I tend to impulse buy cute items, going overboard and over budget!

This Christmas, I'm going to follow the 4 Gifts Rule to buy gifts for Icy and Phoebe.  The 4 Gifts Rule was created to help parents select great holiday gifts for their children without breaking the bank.

Here's how the 4 Gifts rule works. When thinking about what presents to buy you select 4 gifts, broken into the following categories: SOMETHING THEY WANT, SOMETHING THEY NEED, SOMETHING TO WEAR, and SOMETHING TO READ (OR EAT).


I'm joining several of my fellow bloggers for the 4 Gifts For Pets blog hop and GIVEAWAY!!

The 4 Gifts Rule made it easy to choose the 4 gifts I put on Icy and Phoebe's Holiday Wish List.  Note: PetSmart images contain Affiliate Links as noted, which may earn me a small commission, at no extra cost to you.

Icy and Phoebe's 4 Gifts For Pets Holiday Wish List!
🎅 SOMETHING THEY WANT
The CLEVERPET HUB, the world's first game console for dogs!

The CleverPet Hub gaming console for dogs.
The CleverPet Hub has games designed by animal-loving cognitive scientists to provide hours of mental stimulation for dogs.  Mental stimulation is just as important as physical exercise!  I won't have to feel guilty when I leave them home, or if it rains for days. They'll stay busy and challenged.

🎄 SOMETHING THEY NEED
A Fleece Sweater for Phoebe and a new Backpack for Icy!
Phoebe gets cold in the Winter, so she needs something that will keep her toasty warm.  She has a fleece sweater but it's getting a bit ratty!  This adorable fleece vest in a classic red plaid print will be perfect for her.

Icy is rugged and athletic.  She loves going on long hikes with us but her backpack has seen more than it's share of trails.  It's pretty worn, and it's time for a new one!   A new backpack like this one is definitely on our list for Icy!

🎅 SOMETHING TO WEAR
Matching holiday Dog Pajamas for Icy and Phoebe!
I got Phoebe a pair of human pajamas a few years ago, but they didn't work out very well. This year I decided to get Icy and Phoebe matching holiday themed pajamas made specifically for dogs.  They look so adorable in their holiday pj's, I'm thinking they'll be great for our holiday photo shoot!  I got these cute Fa La La Red Plaid Dog Pajamas at Target.




🎄 SOMETHING TO EAT (they're really not that into books so I chose EAT over READ!)
Box of Assorted Holiday themed dog treats!
I bake holiday cookies for us, but I often don't have extra time to make homemade dog treats.  This year I'm giving the dogs their own delicious specialty holiday treats too!

It's sure to be a Merry Christmas For Icy and Phoebe with these gifts under our tree!!

  17. I love spending Christmas with my dog. I take her to see Santa every year and get her photo taken with him. This year I even had holiday professional photos done with her. I also take my own holiday photos of her every year for our xmas card. She gets tons of presents to unwrap b/c she loves to unwrap them and I love watching her do that. She also gets her own stocking full of treats and toys! Needless to say she's SPOILED! Lol! But I love spoiling her!

  27. Thanks for the gift suggestions. Red would definitely be happy with a sweater because she wears them most of the year, and the game console would be perfect to keep Jack mentally stimulated instead of waiting for a neighbour he doesn't like to walk by and bark at!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I take Mr. N to see lights somewhere each year. Haven't decided where we're going this year yet. Those matching PJs are too adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like this gifts rule. Perfect for the furkids and friends/family too. Particularly helpful when you have a budget too. My favorite gift idea is the treats container. Very cute too.

    ReplyDelete
  30. The 4 gift rule is a great idea for dogs as it is for humans! Plus the dog pajamas are one of the cutest things I've ever seen. Thank you for sharing! ~ Dear Mishu

  31. We don't have a lot of pet centric holiday traditions, but my boys do have stockings and I love seeing them go crazy on Christmas morning with their new toys or treats. It super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  32. What a clever idea! I love the four gifts for pets concept! And all the prizes are so fun! The console sounds like a great way to keep Chloe busy on cold winter days when we can't get outside for our walks.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've always loved the four-gift rule. This pet version is smart and creative. Loving those matching PJ's.

    ReplyDelete
  34. The only thing I wouldn't be able to satisfy would be the "something to wear" because the girls don't wear collars or clothes. They don't wear collars because it would tangle their fur terribly. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You guys came up with such a fun giveaway! I'd love to join if you do it next year. They are all great gift ideas, that gaming hub looks really cool I've never seen it before. Sandra and Dolly

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love wrapping their presents

    ReplyDelete
  42. Our previous cat used to love playing with the trees and presents, and we'd let him mess with the wrapping paper and such. Not too many traditions, though.

    (I'm Margot C___ on the widget, I did that wrong, sorry)

  47. My favorite holiday tradition is for my cat Raven to cuddle up with me in the warm fuzzy blankets. I also try to make him his own ornament every year. I use salt dough and make his pawprint <3
