8 last-minute gifts your pup will doggone love

Presented by BarkBox

The kiddos aren’t the only ones who need a stocking hung by the chimney with care this season. Chances are you have a friend or two with an extra stocking for the furbaby in the family. But maybe you were so busy with the human last minute gifts, and suddenly you’re a total pupcrastinator.

Don’t fret. There is still time to avoid the sad puppy eyes on Christmas. Whether you’re shopping for your own pet or a furry friend of the family, BarkBox will have them chasing their tails in excitement.

The products are made by dog lovers especially for dogs, so you know you’re getting the very best. The company partners with thousands of rescues and shelters providing them with various types of support. Plus, 5% of proceeds from all BarkShop purchases goes to keeping dogs out of shelters.

So in addition to getting your shopping done, and making a beloved pup in the family happy, you’re celebrating the true spirit of the holidays by supporting a company that gives back to other pup pals. We give two paws up to that.

Sign up for a 6- or 12-month BarkBox plan by December 22 and your first box is $5. There’s a guaranteed Christmas delivery if you order by end of day December 20, so act fast!

1) BarkBox gift cards

Nothing is better than getting exactly what you want or need. If you’re down to the last minute, but you’re not sure if the lucky dog receiving a gift has any allergies or special needs, the BarkBox or BarkShop gift cards are both surefire ways to go.  Let the pet owner choose a special treat, toy, or accessory that’s 100% sure to be what they really wanted.

Nothing says “holidays” quite like a string of popcorn to garnish the Christmas tree. Distract a snack-loving doggo from eating the decorations with their own (far more durable) tidings.

5) Pup the Cork Champagne

What are you doing New Year’s Eve? Puppin’ bottles in the club, duh. Inside is not booze, but a giggle stick, which is far less messy when you shake it than actual champagne.

6) Rescued Wine Holiday Pine Candle

Dog moms may get a little more excited about this than actual dogs, but there’s nothing more in line with the holiday spirit than giving back. Purchase one of these pine-scented candles made from recycled wine bottles, and a portion of proceeds is donated to animal rescue groups. You can find even more thoughtful and cute gifts in BarkShop’s Dog Mom collection.

7) How to Build a SnowDog

“Do you want to build a snoooowdoooogggg?” Unlike regular snowman noses, this Orbee Tuff carrot will last, even if a dog snatches it off their face. You can use the extra coal treats to teach them a lesson about being naughty instead of nice.
