Unwrapped: For The Obsessive Dog Parent


We all know one

Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that's a full month in which we'll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life.

We all have that one friend who can't go two full minutes without talking about their dog. If we don't, it's probably because we are that friend (guilty as charged!). When the holidays come around, these well-loved pups deserve just as much attention as their owners—their obsessive human would probably prefer a gift that made their pup's tail wag, anyway.

Below, we've put together a list of all the things obsessive dog parents would kill to have wrapped up under the tree—to make their beloved companion happy and, you know, create a little envy on their dog's Instagram feed. From collars with a matching best friend bracelet for you to a camera that'll let you check in on your furry friend even when you have to go to work, we've got you covered.

UGG, Sherpa Pajamas With Removable Hood, $20, available at Bed Bath & Beyond; UGG, Sherpa Dog Booties, $11, available at Bed Bath & Beyond; UGG, Sherpa Pet Blanket, $21, available at Bed Bath & Beyond.

If you didn't literally yell when you saw this picture, you probably have no feelings. Everything in the picture is available for purchase at BB&B, and at a low price point, so a pup with any budget can be swaddled in fuzzy jammies on Christmas morning.

DL1961, Fido Canine Trucker in Puppy Breath, $49, available at DL1961.

Arguably the coolest piece of dog apparel I've ever seen. Size up if you want to be able to use the buttons (my German Shepherd looks just fine with all the buttons open, though, thanks).

Mungo & Maud, Petite Amande Dog Frangrance, $71, available at Mungo & Maud.

Even the most dog-obsessed person has to admit that their beloved pet can smell pretty funky. This spray is as beautiful as their bond, though.

Max Bone, Bunny Poop Bag Holder, $55, available at Max Bone.

Poop? Not chic. This poop bag holder? So chic.

Friendship Collar, Faux Ever Friends Collar, $50, available at Friendship Collar; Friendship Collar, Furry Furry Night Collar, $35, available at Friendship Collar.

Match with your dog, even when you're apart. Each collar comes with a matching bracelet (and comes in many styles and colors), so you can snag a set to match any outfit.

Brklz, Snowflake brkl, $49, available at brklz.

I didn't know that charms for collars existed until I stumbled across brklz, and now I need one for every season. Brklz's collection with Swarovski is extra-sparkly, so your dog can be just as extra as you.

Mutts & Hounds, Ultimate Pamper Hamper, $128, available at Mutts & Hounds.

Basically a care package for dogs, this set is completely customizable and doubles as toy storage once it's been opened up.

Pendleton, Large National Park Dog Coat, $59, available at Pendleton; Pendleton, National Park Chelsea Rain Boots, $110, available at Pendleton.

Pendleton really perfected the matching dog and human wardrobe with its collection of national park-themed items. The rest of the Glacier National Park collection features accessories, jackets of every size, even beds, all with the same rainbow stripes to keep everything coordinated.

X-treme Organics, Paw Balm, $8, available at X-treme Organics.

Keep their paws soft through the long walks and harsh weather. Why should their beauty routine be any less elaborate than your own?

Enchanted Home Pet, Library Sofa Dog Bed, $170, available at Petco.

When you want your dog to be cozy AF, but can't sacrifice your home's aesthetic, Enchanted Home Pet has you covered.

Nike, Air Max 270, $150, available at Nike.

A cool sneaker that you can throw on before one of your countless dog walks, or before a jog with your furry friend, will make sure you can keep up with your high-energy beast. Pup sizes are unfortunately not available.

Bluebird Botanicals, Companion CBD Oil (1oz), $25, available at Bluebird Botanicals; Bluebird Botanicals, Pet CBD Capsules (30 count), $40, available at Bluebird Botanicals; Receptra Naturals, Receptra Pet, $45, available at Receptra Naturals.

Get lit with your pup! No, but seriously—CBD can help even the most anxious pets calm down, and is perfect for when you have parties and don't want all the commotion to stress your dog out.

American Apparel, Flex Fleece Dog Hoodie, $18, available at American Apparel; American Apparel, Unisex Flex Fleece Hoodie, $38, available at American Apparel.

If you weren't already convinced that matching hoodies are a must-have, this American Apparel collection also benefits A Purposeful Rescue.

Muttonhead, Waterproof Rain Camping Hoodie Softshell in Yellow, $140, available at Wildfang; Muttonhead, 3-Way Waterproof Pant, $59, available at Wildfang.

There's quite literally nothing worse for a dog parent than having to go on a walk on a rainy day—have you ever tried holding an umbrella while walking a leash-puller? Wildfang offers a completely waterproof 'fit that is actually cute and comfy, which means you can ditch the umbrella and enjoy the walk with ease.

Petcube, Play Camera, $200, available at Urban Outfitters.

Love your dog, but have to go to work to pay for their bougie lifestyle? Check in on them anytime (and relieve your FOMO in the process).

Found My Animal, Ombre Leash, $62, available at Urban Outfitters.

Not only is this leash super-cute, but the multiple links and carabineer clips allow it to be adjusted to different lengths, so it can easily be held, or wrapped around your waist, without having to make any knots or DIY changes.
