West & Willow Custom Pet Portrait

This custom pet portrait is the only gift I’ve ever given him that I know for a fact he loves. These Willow & West portraits turn out exactly like the photographs you submit. It’s a low-risk gift with high reward. -Danielle Fox, Social Media Editor,

Helen Ficalora Dog Bone Mini Charm

I never thought I'd use the phrases "dog bone charm" and "simple and sophisticated" in the same sentence, but this 14K gold charm changed my mind.

SmartCat Pioneer Pet Ultimate Scratching Post

This is the best cat scratching post I've ever owned, as evidenced by the fact that my cats exclusively use this one even though I have others around my apartment. It's large enough for multiple cats to use at once, it provides a good back stretch, and it has a unique, fibrous texture that my cats seem to gravitate towards. -Melanie Fincher, Staff Writer SEO,

Kong Wubba

This is the best toy for aggressive chewers. My dog tears apart every plush toy within seconds, but even she struggles to get through the thick canvas fabric on this one. It features a squeaky ball, a bouncy ball, and tails, so it's perfect for fetch, tug, and just chewing on. And, since there's no stuffing, it doesn't make a huge mess when your pup does manage to tear a hole in it. -Jaclyn Konich, Associate Nutrition Editor,

Jono Pandolfi Pet Bowls

Who says pet supplies have to be ugly? I'm gifting my friends with fur babies this set of stoneware pet bowls. Handmade ceramics are on-trend and since everyone I know adopted a pandemic pet, this gift feels both heartfelt and practical.

ZippyPaws Burrow Squeaky Hide & Seek Plush Dog Toy

I gave this to my parents, brother, and several friends for Christmas in 2020 after I interviewed someone at the Jacksonville Humane Society for a Daily Paws story.
