This 10+ Gifts For Dogs post is sponsored.
I have a habit of buying gifts for people’s pets. If I’m going to see you for Christmas and Fido is around, Fido is getting a gift too. I’m not even giving it a second thought when I’m picking up gifts for dogs. Fido is a part of your family too, and he’s getting celebrated on Christmas.
But maybe, don’t invite me to your dog’s birthday party. That’s where I draw the line.
If you have a couple dogs on your shopping list, or maybe you just want ideas of what to buy for your own dogs, you’re in luck.
Beth, who you may remember from the very start of Drugstore Divas, picked out a few gifts (toys and treats) for her dog Sophie to try and gave us Sophie’s opinion on those. We also added a couple other items to the list that your dog might enjoy too.
This 10+ Gifts For Dogs list is just one of the gift guides we have on Drugstore Divas in hopes of making your shopping life so much easier.

10+ Gifts For Dogs
As with most of our gift guides, this list is in no particular order. Beth’s comments about the items Sophie tried out are in italics.
Individual Chicken Jerky ‘Slim’ Dog Treat
The Individual Chicken Jerky ‘Slim’ Dog Treat is lick your chops good according to Sophie! She devoured this in just a few bites.
Individual treats are perfect for dogs because you can open one at a time instead of opening the entire bag at once. That way, they’ll stay fresher for longer.
Donut Plush Dog Toy
Sophie doesn’t usually like squeaky toys. But she loves donuts!! Including this strawberry Donut Plush Dog Toy. The toy is sturdy and the squeaker is the entire donut ring.
Sophie’s fave is the strawberry, but you can get this donut plush dog toy in blue, green, purple, or white. The sprinkles are embroidered, so you don’t have to worry about them coming off.
The Anxious Pet Supplement Bars
Sophie wouldn’t eat The Anxious Pet Supplement Bars (originally). So I broke it up and put it in her dish. Well, there goes the cat sniffing it. Once Sophie saw that, she scarfed it down.
The supplement bars come in three types: Hip & Hop Supplement Bar (for hips and joints), Relax & Roll (to calm dogs down), and Bright Idea (for cognitive health).
The supplement bars are made with all natural ingredients and are packaged so they’re easy to take with you on the go.
Hemp Double Knot Rope Dog Toy
The Hemp Double Knot Rope Dog Toy is great for tug of war. Very strong and didn’t come apart or shred like some other rope toys. Sophie wouldn’t let it go even when she was tired out from playing!
A rope dog toy comes in a variety of sizes, so you definitely want to make sure you’re buying one that is the appropriate size for your pup.
Hedgehog Shaped Dental Chew Dog Treat
The Hedgehog Shaped Dental Chew Dog Treat is pretty cute and provided good chewing time for Sophie. The hedgehog is hollow inside and super hard. Great dental chew.
You can’t really tell from the photo with Sophie that she’s chomping down on a hedgehog. If you click the link, though, you can see the hedgehog in all its glory. The vegetable-based chew toy is not shaped that way just for aesthetics, but rather, for function. The “spikes” on the hedgehog’s back reach the areas that are usually difficult to clean.
Sniffany & Co Gift Box Plush Toy
Every girl needs that little blue box in her life! Sophie liked this Sniffany & Co Gift Box Plush Toy so much she used it as a pillow. There is a squeaker, but it is kind of hard to find. The squeaker is very small compared to the toy, which, for Sophie who doesn’t love squeakers, was a good thing.
Stella & Chewy’s Raw Coated Biscuit Dog Treats
Stella & Chewy’s Raw Coasted Biscuit Dog Treats have a good crunch and are very fragrant. I like that they are grain- and poultry-free for dogs with allergies to enjoy too.
There are four different variants to choose from: lamb, beef, chicken, and duck. Sophie tried the beef recipe, in case you were wondering.
Collapsible Dog Bowl
If you’ve read any of our posts about road trips with dogs or traveling with dogs, you know we always suggest bringing a collapsible dog bowl with you. So, while you’re picking out a dog gift this year, you might want to pick out something that’s actually useful … for you.
Your dog won’t know the difference. Your dog will just be happy to see that collapsible dog bowl coming out of your purse when you’re on a walk.
Dino Bruto With Chew Guard Toy
This Dino Bruto With Chew Guard Toy comes at the suggestion of my friend Erika, who has a very spoiled dog. And this dino toy is one of her dog’s favorites.
It’s made with a Chew Guard Technology that has double stitched seams and heavy-duty lining. The brand, goDog, stands by this technology so much that if your toy doesn’t last longer than standard plush toys, the brand will replace it once in 30 days (although you may get a different toy as a replacement).
BilJac PBnanas Treats
Most dogs love treats with peanut butter. If yours does, then the perfect gift would be these BilJack PBnanas Treats. They have a rare 5-star rating on Amazon, and they come with a high recommendation from Erika’s aforementioned dog.
There’s real chicken in them, and no soy, fillers, or rendered fat added.
DIY Gifts For Dogs:
If you would rather make a Christmas gift for your pet instead of buying one, our DIY Dog Treat Advent Calendar is perfect. What’s great is you can reuse it year after year, but you only need to make it once.
Purchase Gifts For Dogs Online:
These aren’t all of the gifts for dogs online, just our favorites. There are more out there, like the Personalized Dog Bandana above. For more dog gifts, check out the stores below:
