Each of us either knows someone or is someone who views their pet as an additional child. While, of course, we did not birth them, they often become such an integral part of our households that they are considered part of the family. When it comes to giving gifts for pet parents—whether that’s for a birthday, holiday, or a random compulsion thanks to the gift-giving love language—there are few things that a pet-obsessed parent will appreciate more than something relating to their animal.

That’s because the unconditional love and loyalty that pets give truly can’t be found anywhere else. No one gets quite as excited to see us after a long day, appreciates us as much when we’ve prepared dinner for them, or cuddles quite as well as a dog. Some cat owners may have a more transactional relationship with their animal. But even the most nonchalant cat shows appreciation for their human in their own way. 

The good news is that there are gifts out there meant specifically for pet lovers. Some gifts scream sentimentality by being customizable, while others are more practical. Whatever the case, we set out to find the best of the best gifts for pet parents for us to refer to when we’re shopping for that friend or loved one who goes feral for their fur baby. 

For the person in our lives who can talk for hours about their dog or cat, look no further: We’ve found the best gifts for pet parents.
