Around the Holidays, the top of our list of gift recipients usually includes loved ones, close friends and family members. However, we tend to forget that our friends and their little four-legged sidekicks need love too.

In the event that it slipped your mind to include them on your shopping roster, we’ve compiled a list of eight items you should consider:
