    1. Musher's Secret, so they can play all winter long in the snow while their cute lil' paws are protected from salt and ice — and it also protects them against hot pavement or sand.,

    Promising review: "Amazing invention! We tried everything for our Westy and highly contagious to ice Chihuahua/terrier mix. We bought rubber boots, hard boots, made duct-tape boots...nothing worked. Couldn't possibly stand the idea of them using the bathroom on the floors the next few months so I tried this being extremely skeptical. It is wax so you put on and in the paw, and when the cold temps hit it it solidifies, keeping rocks, salt, ice from bothering the dogs. Once inside it softens immediately and you wipe it off. We apply every time and our floors are happier for it even with near-zero temps in Indy!" —Carmel Lou

    Get it from Amazon for $12.75+ (available in 60-gram, 200-grab, and 1-pound jars).

    2. An Insta-worthy (and affordable!) shark bed for your smol pupper that everyone who visits won't be able to stop talking about. I mean:


    Promising review: "I really, really, really love this bed. It's adorable. Everyone who sees it wants to get one for their dog. I love that even though it's so inexpensive it still has four fins, gills, eyes, and teeth that actually stay on. Half the time my chug wants to lie inside it and the other half, she loves squishing it and sitting on top of it. It always pops right back up and she can still go inside it. Note: It was a little smaller than I thought it would be, but that is probably just from my perception of the photo. Just check the sides and know you may want to order a size larger than you think you do." —Dramagirl1

    Get it from Amazon for $12.27+ (available in two sizes and fuor colors).

    3. A squeaking hide-a-squirrel toy for the insatiable squirrel-chaser to safely get their fix indoors.,

    Promising review: "I have to say, this is THE BEST dog toy EVER!!!! My dog is a 7 lb morkie, he's almost 5 months old, and teething like crazy! He's chewing on and playing with everything and this toy keeps him occupied for hours. He takes the squirrels out & I put them back in. He walks around the house with them, he absolutely loves them!! He practically fits inside the log when trying to get them and it's really cute too." —Segal

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three sizes and four other designs).

    4. A handheld massager, because name one dog who doesn't deserve regular massages?


    Promising review: "My sweet girl has some arthritis and she loves to get massages with the ball. As soon as I grab it she lies down so I can massage her." —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98.

    5. A Squishface paste for cleaning wrinkles and tear stains to minimize itching and irritation for breeds like pugs and Frenchies. This antibacterial and anti-fungal formula will give 'em the gift of comfort this holiday season.

    Promising review: "I got this for our pug, Pinky, who has had the nastiest stink coming from her wrinkle since we adopted her eight months ago. We have bathed, used medicated wipes, and honestly, nothing lasted for more than 12 hours and then the stink was back. I work at a veterinary office so I tried pretty much every appropriate option. I saw this product while browsing and thought the name was cute and then I saw the great reviews and thought maybe we should try it out. This stuff is a miracle! I have applied a small amount daily to her face folds and the stank is gone. She also appreciates that the product is not scented. I am so happy!" —Jeff Cohn

    Get it from Amazon $20.72.

    6. A paw-fect blanket to cozy up to that they can call their own., Amazon

    Promising review: "Super cute, super soft, and cozy. My little girl loves her new blanket! I keep it in her crate, where she sleeps at night on a pad. She has been sleeping longer and more soundly since I gave it to her. She's a bed-digger, so she likes being able to actually move something around to make her bed. I appreciate her not tearing up her crate pads attempting to dig them more comfortable!" —Kayla Denise

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sizes and in pink, purple, and brown).

    7. A hip wool sweater for the trendsetting pupper who loves pattern play.

    Ware of the Dog

    Made of 100% lambswool, this sweater features a leash hole on back panel. Dry-clean or hand-wash cold and lay flat to dry.

    Get it from Ware of the Dog for $80 (available in five sizes).

    8. Pet steps so you can give your tiny-legged pup the gift of climbing up to the couch, bed, or window sill with ease.

    Promising review: "These steps are perfect for my 5 lb and 10 lb dogs to easily get up and down from the bed. It was easy to train them to use the steps. They’re very lightweight so it’s easy to move away from the bed when I don’t want them in the bed. Recommend to help little dogs on furniture. Even if they can jump up and down like my 10 lb dog can, this is better for their joints." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in three sizes and 15 colors).

    9. Some smol treats in fun seasonal flavors like gingerbread and snickerdoodle that any diminutive doggo would be be thrilled to find in their stocking.


    Promising review: "Nice little treats, and they smell good too. My dog loves these little treats, they are small enough to hide in his toys/treat balls." —Beverly

    Get the Blue Dog Bakery Jingle Bites gingerbread treats from Chewy for $5.99 and the Three Dog Bakery snickerdoodle treats from Chewy for $7.99.

    10. An elegant tweed dress that'll have the pup-arazzi turning their heads.


    Promising review: "Classy dress for your furbaby. I bought this for my dog — she was invited to a dog adoption event. The dress drew a lot of attention. So pretty on." —Felice585

    Get it from Petco for $19.99+ (available in sizes XXS–M).

    11. A booster seat for the car so you and your pup can head out on the open road comfortably and safely. (I mean...just look at how happy these lil' woofers are!)


    This booster seat is recommended for dogs up to approximately 20 lbs., but can hold up to 30 lbs.

    Promising review: "I love this seat! I purchased it for my Chihuahua mix puppy and he loves riding in the car now. No more whining or whimpering. Installing the seat is super simple. Now getting my little guy in and out of the car is effortless. As he is so small, 3 lbs, he has a ton of room in the seat so I placed a toy in for snuggling and a blanket to raise him up just a little. As other reviews have said the D-ring it comes with to attach to his harness is way too big. I replaced it with a simple $2 keychain I picked up at Home Depot. Also, the metal clips that attach the strap to the basket get incredibly hot in the warmer temperatures so I picked up a couple seat belt strap covers and problem solved." —Meghan J

    Get it from Amazon for $56.69+ (available in six colors).

    12. A cute, comfy, and Instagram-ready front-facing bag to tote your pup around so you can give them the gift of adventures!


    Promising review: "My 8-pound Pomeranian is super spoiled and wants me to carry her everywhere. She never 'lets' me carry her in regular carry bags, but she LOVES this one! She feels like I am holding her and carrying her, and she likes being in front of me near my face. I could carry her on long walks, and she doesn't squirm or ask to be let out like she does with other carriers. I highly recommend this product!" —JMHO

    Get it from Chewy for $13.36+ (available in two sizes).

    13. A Santa hat, because is it even the holidays if your dog isn't donning a festive hat?


    Promising review: "This is the absolute best Santa hat! We’ve tried many and this is by far the best. The elastic has cutouts for the dog's ears and is adjustable. Also, the hat already has a bit of stuffing to help it stand up." —Pippa

    Get it from Chewy for $2.99+ (available in three sizes).

    14. A pair of doggie leg warmers so their teeny-weeny legs can stay nice and toasty all winter long (and so they can channel their inner '80s aerobics instructor).

    16. Some wee lil' Nylabone chews so they can satisfy their chew fix without destroying your home.


    This two-pack comes with a bacon- and a peanut butter–flavored chew.

    Promising review: "I have a very small 9 lb dog. He loves to chew but the moderate chew toys are usually too hard for him — but you're not supposed to give a dog with adult teeth the softer ones. I tried these hoping the shorter size might make it easier for him to chew and I was right! He loves these and carries them all over the house." —Reanna Rosloniec

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    17. A soft and comfy harness that's expandable — perfect for a new puppy.


    Promising review: "I love this harness for my 9 lb rat terrier. I purchased it because our other dog had one when we adopted her and it seemed like a nice harness. I was not disappointed! It is soft and comfy and super sturdy. The dogs can go all day in this harness and never have any issues like red spots, chafing, or hair loss like other collars and harnesses have given them." —Kyle G

    Get it from Amazon for $12.59+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 14 colors).

    18. A canvas backpack so your pup can tote all the essentials — a much more adorable alternative to bringing your own bag on their walks.


    Promising review: "This is perfect for my 10 lb dog. I can carry his treats inside, toys, and doggy bag. Easy access!" —Jrivera4973

    Get it from Petco for $14.99 (available in two sizes).

    19. Some Greenies dental chews that are so delicious, your pup won't even know they're designed to keep their chompers healthy and their breath fresh!,

    The "teenie" size is recommended for dogs 5–15 lbs, and the "petite" size is recommended for dogs 15–25 lbs.

    Promising review: "I have tried dental sprays, rawhides, and daily teeth brushing and nothing has worked for my dog's stinky breath until now. I gave my dog these dental dog treats and on day two my dog's breath was no longer killing me!" —Irma T

    Get a 12-ounce bag from Amazon for $14.98 (available in four sizes).

    20. A stylish memory-foam dog bed with a machine-washable faux-fur topper so they can lounge in luxury.


    The bed is designed to ease joint pain and provide maximum support for your pup, and includes the removable faux-fur topper, a waterproof foam cover, "human-grade" memory foam, and a nonskid rubberized bottom.

    Promising review: "This bed has succeeded not only mine but my Aussie's expectations! It’s very comfortable, high up off the ground, and firm enough that she doesn’t sink to the ground. She was a little unsure at first but now it's her favorite! I love how the cover is removable and washable,and in the summer when it’s warmer I can take the fur pad off. Will definitely be buying another one for her and one for our terrier!" —Jen

    Get it from for $99+ (available in four sizes).

    21. A chic-as-heck pet carrier that'll have your woofer feeling like royalty.

    Wild One

    The bag features a cushioned base, soft non-slip straps, durable structured exterior, and a cutout so that your pup can chill comfortably. It fits most dogs 25 lbs and under!

    Promising review: "I ordered the carrier in black and absolutely love it! We were looking for something to use on an Amtrak ride that would let our little pug sit up, look out, and lie down. Now we take her everywhere in it — train, cab, subway, even out to eat dinner al fresco — and she loves it! I also get tons of compliments on how sleek and chic it looks. People don't even know it's a dog carrier until they see Lady's head popping out. The rubbery straps and base are perfect for carrying and placing down anywhere. Easy to clean, and it has a clip inside to make sure Lady is secure. There's also an interior pocket that we've used to hide an ice pack in the hotter weather. Highly recommend!" —Emma M.

    Get it from Wild One for $180 (available in tan, navy, and black).

    22. A "Dear Santa, Define Good" festive tee for the pup who's not sure if they're on the naughty list this year. (But even if they are, they're still getting tons of presents.)


    Promising review: "I got it in a size medium. It's a little big on my Dachshund, but I wanted it to go over her harness as well so it's the perfect size." —DachshundMom

    Get it from Chewy for $7.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL).

    23. And an easy-on-the-eyes collapsible dog crate that's a cinch to travel with, so your pupper can join you on adventures with minimal hassle.


    Promising review: "Initially I was hesitant to spend this much money on a dog crate. However, after researching and looking at the instructional videos, I could not find another product similar to it. We are an active family and I needed a crate that could easily collapse and travel with us. The puppy divider was an added bonus since our puppy is only 8 weeks old. The crate was SUPER easy to open up. The puppy divider installation a little more challenging but I figured it out. We also do carry our crate upstairs at bedtime. It is not super lightweight but I am a petite 5'3" female and manage on my own just fine. For our needs, this crate meets our criteria and I am glad I spend the extra $$ And...their customer service is AMAZING!! I can't think of too many companies that are as responsive and understanding as this company." —Chanal P

    Get it from Diggs for $245+ (available in three sizes; size S fits dogs up to 30 lbs).
