Seasonal Sneak Peek: Embroidered Pet Christmas Stockings

Treat your fur-babies to a special gift this Christmas with a cat or dog stocking. Personalized with their name, these stockings will ensure your pet has a place on the mantel just for him or her. Choose from custom Christmas stockings featuring either a red embroidered cat on green or a green embroidered dog on red. These colors will fit in seamlessly with the rest of your seasonal decor, and best of all—personalization is free! (Just make sure to keep the name at or below 11 letters!)

Looking to get creative with the stocking stuffers this year? Fill cat stockings with gourmet cat treats, a felted toy on a string, or even some catnip cookies. If you can work some sort of jingle-bell toy into the stocking, you’ll be certain to catch your cat’s attention come Christmas morning, when you’re ready to dump out those goodies.

Your dog, of course, will need little coaxing to come over and investigate his stocking. Stuff these personalized pet stockings with rawhide treats, carob cookies, and a brand new squeaky toy. Your pup will be overjoyed to be part of the festivities (and a few snacks are sure to keep him busy, while your two-legged friends and family open their own presents).

Pet Christmas stockings with names are a cute and heartwarming way to include your furry pal. So whether you’re the proud parent of “Zoe” or a “Sebastian,” find an adorable Christmas stocking just for them.

Just Retired! Pet-Themed Clothtique Santa Figurines

Special Santa bulletin: These adorable, pet-themed Clothtique™ figurines have just been retired! Whether you’re an avid collector of these detailed decorations or you’re just starting your collection, you’ll want to “fetch” these figurines before they’re gone!

From Possible Dreams®, these Clothtique™ figurines depict Santa making fast friends with some darling four-legged creatures. These Clothtique™ Santa figurines are designed by Ann Dezendorf, and each has unique details: handpainted resin features and a hand-sewn stiffened cloth costume.

Santa has quite a surprise in his little red wagon. These Waggin’ tails belong to three pups who just can’t wait to meet their new owners on Christmas morning. Tiny Santa hats and a paw print ribbon around Kris Kringle’s gift bag make this one of the cutest Clothtiques™ ever.

Santa would hate for these frisky Three Little Kittens to undo all the elves’ nice wrapping work, so he’s happy to entertain them and distract them for a moment. A dangling red ornament should keep them off the naughty list and out of those festively wrapped presents.

Get Winter-Ready with Snowflake Holiday Pet Furniture Covers

The holidays are fast approaching, and if you’re a pet owner, this usually means two things: one, you’re waging a constant war with pet hair to keep your home looking presentable for guests. And two, a willful cat or sad-eyed pup can never truly be kept off the couch. It just isn’t going to happen.

But all is not lost! Quilted furniture covers are stylish and make tidying up a breeze. With sizes available for your recliner, loveseat, or sofa, the Snowflake Furniture Protector features cushy box-quilting. So your pet may be more inclined to lounge around on your furniture, but that’s okay. The microfiber polyester material is water-repellent as well as soil- and snag-resistant. Just toss your furniture cover in the wash (cold on the gentle cycle!) when your living room could use some freshening up. No more last-minute lint rolling!

As a bonus, the elegant snowflake print on medium blue is perfect for low-key winter decorating. For once, you can find recliner and couch protectors for dogs and cats that actually fit your holiday aesthetic. A few Swedish paper stars all hung in the window, a fluffy throw for some cuddling with your animal friend, and you’re all set!

Do you love digging out the Christmas decorations and turning your home into a holiday wonderland? Do you wrap presents like an origami master? If the holiday season is your time to shine, then enjoy every moment to the fullest—just remember that you might need to make a few alterations and substitutions if you have a furry friend in the house.

Here are a few seasonal decorations and accessories to avoid or to keep out of your pet’s reach, according to the ASPCA and PetMD. Together, you and your pet can have a safe and paw-some holiday!

Choking risks or dangers to the digestive tract:

  • Breakable ornaments

Designed by Ann Dezendorf, these finely detailed Clothtique™ figurines depict Santa with his cute animal friends. Each Possible Dreams® Santa is dressed in a hand-sewn cotton/polyester costume that is stiffened to add realism.

These puppies can hardly keep their tails from Waggin’ at the thought of their new holiday home. Santa has a gift bag to carry, so he’s decided to pull the pups along in a sweet red wagon. The green bag is tied with a red pawprint ribbon to enhance the charming scene.

If he could, the curious kitten who’s climbed on Santa’s shoulder would ask you to Define Naughty. After all, he’s just having a bit of harmless fun, right? Nevertheless, he’s stuck with the “Naughty” cap, while his two kitten buddies (behaving for the moment) get to wear the “Nice” ones.
