Gift Guide for the Cozy Dog

Check out this gift guide for dog beds, dog apparel, cozy dog items, and more.

Dog beds have come a long way as have dog clothes. Years ago, many people would not consider dog apparel nor a dog bed, but times have changed for the better. Even if your dog isn’t into dog clothes, there is likely something in this gift guide for that cozy dog in your life.

Whether you are shopping for a family member or friend’s dog or your own pooch, this gift guide will help you with some fabulous cozy dog finds that make for unique and memorable presents.

Easy to use gift guides are my favorites, so that is the goal of this guide and the others that can be found below. There are 20 gift ideas in this guide, broken out into five categories with four items in each category. We will include a bonus item at the end, too. We are including items from $5 bucks and those in the $200 range, too.

Dog Winter Jackets

(Fidose Hot Pick) Made By De: Baby it’s cold outside. My rule of thumb: If you need a jacket, so does your dog. One of my favorite winter jackets of all time comes from Made by De, who sells on Etsy and makes custom fit coats for dogs. his one is made of diamond ripstop, which is four times as tough as my standard ripstop nylon. If you need rugged, this is the one! These custom dog coats are waterproof on the outside and soft on the inside for comfort. With so many available options, you’ll have the perfect one of a kind dog coat for your pup. I make each one to your specifications, with breed specific knowledge that leads to a fabulous fit. I know, we own two!

Dog Beds

It’s always a good idea to change your dog’s bedding, ensure the fill is supportive and geared to your dog’s health and needs (arthritis?), and the right size. Here are some of the beds we use and have experience with, so we feel good recommending them:

Only Natural Pet Sweet Dreams Blue Peaks Dog Mat is hand sewn in the USA from upholstery grade fabric. Stuffed with hypoallergenic fill made from recycled plastic bottles, these beds are eco-friendly and super comfy; a size for every dog!

Dog Pajamas

Anyone who has followed our social media accounts knows that our dog, Dexter, is often seen sporting a pair of what we call “man-jamas.” Doggy pajamas help to keep pet dander and hair off furniture and are functional after bath, in cooler months, for photo fun, and during times when the air conditioner is on and want your dog to have a layer of warmth and for the cozy dog, these are paw-fect!


Dog Bath Products

Since you have the pajamas ready, a good way to put them to use is with a doggie bath! Here are some of our favorite shampoos and dog bath time products:

Only Natural Pet Pure & Clean Deodorizing Shampoo & Spray set is specially formulated with zinc, a proven odor neutralizer that works on everything from normal dog smell to “what did you roll in?!”

Only Natural Pet Pure & Clean Itch Relief Shampoo: We have a serious crush on this shampoo and noticed a difference with our dog’s itching after using it. Fall leaves mean itchy skin and winter temperatures can dry skin.

Only Natural Pet Soothe & Shield Paw Balm: Treat the feet. After I bathe my dog, he is in doggie pajamas and relaxed, we treat the feet and put this soothing balm on his paw pads. It is petroleum-free all natural paw balm to moisturize and help heal cracked, dry foot pads. It has rich shea and mango butters, plus avocado and coconut oils to moisturize your dog’s hard working feet. Soothing herbs like calendula, rosemary and aloe vera, along with Vitamin E help tender foot pads feel good fast.

This lightly scented combo features 70% organic ingredients, and both shampoo and conditioner are 100% free of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) and paraben.

Dog Accessories

What better way to close out this category than with the accessories to compliment a clean, cozy dog!? Here are some gifts ideas for accessories for the favorite dogs in your life (perhaps your own)!

Snowman Dog Collar: This is a collar your dog dons and then doesn’t take off until warmer weather moves in. From The French Dog, we are swooning for this snowman dog collar.

Dog Bow Ties: I might be addicted to these. You will be, too. From The French Dog, these bow ties are perfect for dressing up your dog for occasions, or no reason whatsoever. They fasten with velcro around your dog’s collar; simply cut the velcro to fit if it’s too long.  They are perfectly stiffened to retain their shape even after wearing for weeks on end. They won’t droop or crumple under the strain of a baggy dog’s neck wrinkles.
