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.

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 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.

From selling probiotic supplements to picture frames and umbrellas

A Kardashian-level of success doesn't happen overnight, and it certainly doesn't happen without proper planning. Kim Kardashian West clearly knows this because, according to TMZ, she has already filed for trademark protection on the name of her two-week-old baby, Psalm West. From personal appearances and entertainment services to probiotic supplements and scrunchies, she is leaving no stone unturned in terms of possible business opportunities.

Apparently, all of the Kardashian parents file these kinds of trademark protections for their kids even if the businesses never come to fruition. It's done as a precautionary measure to keep others from profiting off of their name and to make sure that, should they ever want to start a business, they don't have to worry about someone else getting to it first. The sheer length of this list speaks to the huge earning potential of baby Psalm, who can't even control his own neck muscles yet, let alone go into business. Still, this brings a whole new meaning to "securing the bag."

Below, a list of all the things Kardashian West is seeking usage rights for.

Well, actually it's crocodile, but she looks out of this world so...

Winnie Harlow walked the Cannes red carpet on Wednesday on her way to a screening of Oh Mercy!, wearing a showstopping gown.

The sheer black dress featured green embroidery on the front and back, which Ralph and Russo confirmed was in the shape of a crocodile. She belted the dress with a black crocodile skin-like belt and finished the look off with some strappy heels. She didn't leave it at just that. For beauty, Harlow packed on full lids of sparkly purple eyeshadow. She kept her hair sleek and simple.

Though the brand says otherwise, as Game of Thrones fans, we'd like to think the embroidery is reminiscent of a dragon's skin. Not to mention, Harlow looks out-of-this-world beautiful in it.

That denim kimono!!

Marion Cotillard shut down the Cannes red carpet on Wednesday at a screening for Matthias Et Maxime. Instead of an extravagant gown that's expected of the event, Cotillard wore a matching black crop top and shorts. Despite wearing an outfit I typically don to a hot yoga class, she looks incredible. She completed the look with an oversized denim kimono, a statement necklace, and heeled booties.

At first, I was drawn in by the crop top and hotpants duo, but, after looking closer at the kimono, it's clear that it's the real scene-stealer. The floor-length Balmain piece was decorated with artful rips and dragon motifs. I would like to live in it.

Let's all bow down to the Khaleesi of Cannes.

"It doesn't make you weak to ask for help"

Singer Billie Eilish is continuing to open up about mental health, this time in a new PSA video in partnership with the Ad Council and Seize the Awkward.

In the video, Eilish insists that "it doesn't make you weak to ask for help." She doubles down on the importance of asking for help, and stresses the importance of friends and family being there when their close ones reach out and checking in on them as well. "You should be able to ask anyone for help, everyone has to help someone if they need it." According to Eilish, there have been times when someone reached out to her at the exact moment she needed it, and it helped.

It was particularly refreshing to see Eilish acknowledge that there are things she still doesn't know and has to learn about her mental health. At the very beginning of the video, the interviewer asks her to reflect on her mental health journey, and all Eilish can do is let out chortle. "I think when people hear, 'Remember to take care of your mental health,' they think that everyone else is, and that is not at all accurate," she admitted. "You know, for me I'm trying to learn still to make sure that I stay okay."

Check out the PSA below.

Kim Kardashian has definitely been accused of borrowing a design now and then. But when Instagram influencer and Kardashian look-alike Kamilla Osman claimed the entrepreneur copied her birthday look for a Met Gala after-party, Kardashian was not going to let it fly—and shared plenty of photo evidence to shut down the claim.

Fashion industry watchdog Diet Prada first noticed Osman's claims on Instagram and shared side-by-side images of Kardashian's Cher-inspired outfit designed by Mugler and Osman's dress. "Never get confused with who 'inspires' who. They won't give you credit but they will copy," Osman wrote on her IG story. "I designed this dress for my birthday last year. Nobody had a dress like this was an original design."

Kardashian responded by posting the true inspiration behind her look: images of Cher, in similarly sparkly, plunging-neckline dresses and wigs, and of model Yasmeen Ghauri walking a Mugler show in the '90s. In fact, the only similarity between Osman's and Kardashian's looks is the bodycon mini-dress style, which the two are not the first to wear. Among the images, Kardashian included a blank slide with the hashtag "NotOnMyMoodBoard," making it clear that this was in response to Osman's claims.

Though I am with Kim on this one, Kardashian does have a history of co-opting other people's work. From being sued over her Kimoji app, to claims she copied makeup palettes and perfume bottle designs, to being accused of copying Naomi Campbell's entire style, it's far from the first (and probably, far from the last) time Kardashian's name will be mentioned like this.
