2020 has been stressful enough, but finding great gifts doesn’t have to be. Check out In The Know’s gift guides to make holiday shopping for every person in your life easier than ever.

If you have someone in your life who is a self-proclaimed fur parent (for clarity, I’m talking about people who are parents to dogs, cats and/or other furry animals), then you may be wondering what to buy them for the holidays.

As a mother to two Mini Schnauzers, I’ll be the first to tell you that practical gifts are best. I always look for products that are made with high-grade ingredients. If they also happen to save me time and money? Even better.

What is a good gift for a dog?

If you’re struggling to find great gifts for pet parents this holiday season, don’t worry. I found four great pet gifts below that my pups Sky and Piglet can’t get enough of. And trust me, Sky and Piglet are very selective when it comes to gifts. #Spoiled

Shop: Portland Pet Food Company – Natural Wet Dog Food Pouches (4-pack), $27.96

These wet food pouches are made with the best ingredients for your dog. They’re gluten-free, wheat-free and grain-free. My two dogs ran through these like birthday cake and they make dinner time very easy.

Shop: PetSafe Dog and Cat Food Dispenser, $24.90

Credit: Amazon

This pet feeder is one of the greatest inventions ever for pet parents. The food dispenser makes it extremely easy to feed your pet whether you’re working on a schedule or you’re actually away from home. FYI, it also has over 6,400 ratings on Amazon.

Shop: Earth Rated Dog Wipes, $8.99

Credit: Amazon

Trust me when I say accidents happen, no matter how big someone’s fur baby is. These wipes are 100 percent plant-based and unscented, though they do contain all-natural shea butter, aloe and chamomile. These are genuine lifesavers, especially when your fur baby has a runny booty.

Shop: Benebone Real Bacon Durable Wishbone Dog Chew Toy, $11.59

Credit: Amazon

Of course, every dog loves his bone! This wishbone is not only an Amazon best seller, but it’s also built to last. It’s great for dogs that are aggressive chewers (like my two terriers).
