The Dodo found some of the best Christmas gifts for new dog parents — from matching pajamas and DIY ornament kits to Christmas-themed dog treats and squeaker toys.

There’s something for both parents and pups on this list, and everything is so good that their stockings are definitely going to be overstuffed.

PajamaGram Matching Christmas PJs

Gift the entire family matching pajamas from PajamaGram — and there’s even a pair for your new dog included in the set! “If you’re considering buying these for the holidays, do it!” one pet parent wrote. “I ordered these for me, my husband and my dog! They are soft, perfect size, well made, and vivid colors.” You can order the correct sizes separately.

Baby Mushroom Ultimate Pawprint Keepsake Kit

These paw print kits from Baby Mushroom on Amazon are the perfect gift for any new dog parent. They can create keepsake ornaments of their dog’s paws using the included air-dry clay. And this kit even comes with letter stamps so that pet parents can include their pup’s name on the ornament.

ZippyPaws Holiday Burrow Interactive Dog Toy

Stuff the log with all three Santa hat-wearing chipmunks and watch your dog try to get everyone out of the log. Each chipmunk has a squeaker inside, so dogs can’t resist solving this puzzle toy. “This toy is super cute! My Goldendoodle went crazy when I gave it to her,” one five-star reviewer wrote. “The three little animals that hide in there are so cute. She's had it a few days and the squeakers still work!”

Malicious Women Candle Co. “My Dog & I” Candle

This candle from Malicious Women Candle Co. perfectly describes the attitude of all dog parents. Though the label says the candle is infused with “profile stalking,” the candle itself is actually scented like a lemon drop martini, and all candles are hand-poured in Snohomish, Washington.

Lepawit 2-Pack Christmas Toys

These plush toys from Lepawit both have squeakers in them, so they’ll entertain your dog all Christmas morning (and then some!). They’re made to last with strong embroidery and sewing, and the hot chocolate rope toy makes for a fun game of tug-of-war.

St. Nicholas Square Pawprint Stocking

“Love this stocking for our dog,” one five-star pet parent wrote about the St. Nicholas Square pawprint stocking on Amazon. “It will be big enough to fit a couple [of] toys and some treats … Quality is excellent. It will undoubtedly last longer than our own stockings.”
