It’s almost that time of year again! Time for families to come together and celebrate the joyous occasion of Christmas.
To some, buying Christmas presents for pets might seem silly. But for animal lovers like us, it’s completely normal to have a few little goodies under the tree with your feathered or furry friend’s names on them! Which is why we’ve decided to put together a list of our favourite gifts for your dog, cat or bird, which you can draw some inspiration from this Christmas.
Christmas Presents for Dogs
The iDig is the first ever digging toy for dogs! Being voted the Best Dog Toy of 2018, the iDig is the latest toy from the famous iFetch family. Load with toys or treats and watch your pup dig for its treasure. With a hardshell compact or a pop-up version, there are multiple flap designs to provide variations of digging challenges. The benefits of using the iDig are to provide an outlet for your dog’s innate desire to dig and it will offer hours of physical and mental stimulation.
Pamper your pooch this Christmas with a personalised Houndztooth Pamper Pack. Your dog will feel extra special this Christmas with its very own personally named Christmas Pamper Pack that is individually wrapped with your own special Christmas message. Select from any of the natural goat milk blends of shampoo and conditioning deodorising spray plus one of three flavoursome natural Clean 100% Australian Dog Treats.

Does your arm ever get tired from continuously throwing a ball when playing fetch? Your dog will have a great time playing fetch with the PetSafe Automatic Ball Launcher and will save your arm the aches and pains. This handy device is water-resistant and great for both indoors and outdoors. You can even adjust the angle and distance settings. It’s a win-win for both you and your doggo.
If you’re looking for something less expensive, the DOOG Seasonal Sticks are a great stocking stuffer. Other than looking super adorable, the sticks are safer and more durable than any regular stick and are still just as perfect for a good game of fetch. They ﬂoat in water, glow in the dark and have a built-in rope with a handy grip – all the essentials for any dog toy.
Christmas Presents for Cats
Say goodbye to clothes being torn to shreds or coming home to mass destruction in your living room! Curb your kitty’s playful destructive tendencies with a Cat Scratching Post Tree. Suitable for cats and kittens of all sizes, this tree will support positive scratching behaviours and keep your kitty occupied for hours on end. This particular scratching tree is ideal for indoor use as you can simply pop it in any corner of any room.
Your kitty will look purr-fect for any occasion with a Dharf bowtie cat collar. From stripes and polka dots to playful prints, there’s something for all the cool cats here. The collar comes with a detachable bowtie so your kitty can be ready for any type of event. These bowtie cat collars are the perfect addition to your cat’s wardrobe.
Capture your favourite pet moments forever with a pet photography session. Each pet has a unique and awesome personality, but it can be difficult to capture their unique personality in a photograph. Our very own Samford Pet Resort pet photographer, Hannah Millerick, captures those spontaneous, priceless moments of your pet’s unique personality in photographs that will last forever.
All pets love food! So why not get your cat a food dispenser. This modern, fun sensor food tree will keep your cat amused for hours as they try to find their favourite cat treats. Designed for any cat, big or small, they can sit, stand or lay down while playing, and the tree can be set to any one of three levels of difficulty.
Treat your precious furry friend to not one but seven toys…seven toys we are sure will keep your kitty busy on Christmas morning and beyond. With this cat toy mega pack, your cat will enjoy endless fun and variety when playing with the unique material toys. With so many to choose from, they won’t be able to contain their excitement. Each toy is made from natural wood, sisal, elastic and feathers, so you can have peace of mind whilst your cat gets busy developing their hunting skills.
Christmas Presents for Birds
Play stands are the perfect gift for birds to have an out-of-cage exercise opportunity. Think of them as a mini gym for your bird. Play stands can also be used to lure reluctant parrots from their cages so that they can become accustomed to people. This specific Wood Play Stand is durable and environmentally friendly. We recommend you hang toys and snacks from the stand for added enjoyment.
A bird toy is an exciting element to add to any bird enclosure. Every bird cage needs some fun toys for birds – they’re just as essential as perches and bird feeders. Keep your feathered friend happy and entertained hours on end as well as exercising their brain with these unique bird toys.
With these great gifts, you and your beloved pet will have a very Merry Christmas. If you really want to treat your furry and feathered friends, why not book them a holiday with us, at Samford Pet Resort. We cater for dogs, cats, birds, and even rodents. Give your pet the holiday it deserves!
