2023 Holiday Gifts for Pets & Pet Parents: Local Dog Products
Gorilla Dog Beds
The Houston area is home to great pet product manufacturers. Among them is Gorilla Dog Beds. They make luxury chew-proof, orthopedic, and attractive dog beds for dogs of all sizes. They also make crate pads, crate covers, collars, and leashes. Their claim to fame is their focus on quality and durability and commitment to manufacturing their products in the USA. Their dog bed mattresses, for example, are American-made and 100% certified by CertiPUR-US.
This level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is sure to be noticed by the pet lovers in your life. And, thanks to your generosity, their pets will have something cozy, comfy, and safe to sleep on for years to come.
Local treats are all the rage at Doggie Express, makers of all-natural dog goodies. Their menu includes wuffins, pupcakes, bones day cakes, ice cream, you name it! They have a subscription box, help plan doggie parties, and are located in Houston proper.
Their creativity, packaging, and passion for wowing dogs will not go unnoticed by the dog lovers in your life. And, their hand-decorated treats are sure to gain a fandom from the dogs that are lucky enough to receive these mouth-watering treats.
2023 Holiday Gifts for Pets & Pet Parents: Houston-inspired Pet Products
Houston Texans Apparel & Accessories
The Houston Texans fans in your life will love to receive pet apparel that celebrates their favorite team. From Texans bandanas and jerseys to toys, this thoughtful gift idea will make you look like you scored the winning point. While most of these types of products are designed for dogs, even those with cats can join in the fun. A Texans hoodie is sized for both cats and dogs would look amazing at the holidays, for example.
Even if they don’t use this gift often, it’s a fun way to celebrate your loved one’s home team. And, while we’re loyal to Houston’s local teams, you can, of course, choose teams for the whole family around the US and beyond.
Houston-Area Brewery Gift Cards
Support a local business and give your local loved ones the treat of a gift card to Fulbrook Ale Works Brewery in the Pecan Grove area of Richmond, Texas. They are dog-friendly, are open seven days a week, and host family-friendly events year-round. We like the idea of supporting local when gift-giving because it celebrates Houston businesses and residents while boosting the local economy and reducing consumerism.
I would personally love to take my family to a fun afternoon for food and refreshments at a local spot like Fulbrook Ale Works; I’m sure your friends and loved ones would too. You can find other breweries, wineries, and restaurants in and around Katy on Bring Fido.
