Steph, Executive Editor
Cat mom Steph knows how notoriously difficult cats are to shop for—you never know what may be a hit or miss. She’s leaning on her knowledge of feline faves (see cardboard, scratching and boxes) for her picks. And since she’s found herself traveling more this year—even if it’s just to the office—she’s got a gift on her list to help her stay connected to her fur child, Luna.
Frisco Christmas Tree Cardboard Cat House
“Cats love to scratch—they need to scratch—and I always have several kinds of scratching posts and boards around for Luna to sink her claws into. This cat house disguised as a Christmas tree with cardboard scratcher inside makes for a festive addition to our holiday decor. And it just might deter her from digging into our actual Christmas tree.”
Petcube Bites 2 Lite Treat-Dispensing Pet Camera
“Luna and I have spent a lot of time together over the last couple years thanks to the pandemic. But lately life has taken me out of the house. I love that this pet cam can help me keep an eye on her (separation anxiety much?); she’ll love that it dispenses treats. ”
Goody Box Holiday Toys, Treats & Accessories for Cats
“What I love about this Goody Box is that the thinking is already done for you. (Chewy to the rescue!) This curated box of cat-approved gifts includes cat treats, plush cat toys and a soft blanket that I just know Luna will love to knead. And hey, even if for some reason the gifts end up being a bust, I know I can count on Luna loving the box. "

Frisco Red Buffalo Plaid Dog & Cat Bow Tie
“Some pets love to dress up in holiday sweaters. My pets are not those pets. So, this classic plaid bow tie is the next best thing. It attaches to their collar for maximum comfort, making it an easy way to 'dress them up' for holiday family photos.”
Sizes XS/S and M/L, $6.99
Frisco Holiday 52.3-in Reindeer Cat Scratching Post & Tunnel
“OK, so technically, I bought this cat tree last year, but it should totally be on your 2022 shopping list. Fun fact: It sits in my living room year-round. During the holiday season, the reindeer is the star of our holiday decor. Then come the new year, we detach the head, transforming a unique Christmastime decoration into a basic cat tunnel and scratcher. Win-win!”
GREENIES Gingerbread Flavor Regular Size Dog Dog Treats, 6 oz.
“When you’re short on time, adding a seasonal twist to an everyday routine is a great way to get in the spirit—and one routine Zeno never forgets is her morning Greenies treat. This limited-edition gingerbread flavor is a cute, easy way to spice up our usual schedule (pun intended).”
Kristine, Senior Editor
This holiday season is a special one for Kristine: It's her puppy Odesza's first Christmas! And oh-holy-night is she stoked to dress up (and spoil) her Shepherd-Terrier for the occasion. From Dez’s first stocking (it's personalized, of course) to all the squeaky gifts, here's what this good girl's getting for Christmas.
Frisco Paw Holiday Personalized Dog & Cat Stocking
"Every pet deserves their own stocking (where else will you hide those special gingerbread-flavored treats?), and I’m eyeing Frisco's personalized holiday stocking, which is available in three prints: plaid red, plaid green and classic satin red. You can even personalize the stocking down to the thread color (there's six options!)."
Frisco Nordic Fair Isle Dog & Cat Hooded Sweater
“On Christmas morning, the whole fam will be slipping into a warm, cozy holiday sweater. Desza's will be Frisco's pink pom-pom adorned Nordic Fair Isle Sweater, which notably features the cutest pink hood with antlers! Our selfies are going to be extra-cute this year. Now to find an antlers headband to match…”
Sizes XS-3XL, starting at $13.99
Frisco Holiday Hipster Helpers Plush Dog Toys
“Dez can't sleep without destroying one of her toys—and she's getting not one but three new plush squeaky dog toys this Christmas. She's been a good girl, after all. Frisco's Holiday Hipster Santa & Friends Plush Squeaky Dog Toys comes with a hipster Santa, hipster reindeer and hipster elf.”
