The Pet Christmas Gift Guide

Christmas gifts aren’t limited to humans – your special furry friend is equally deserving of a good treat after the year we’ve all had. While the pooches have been loving the comfort of owners working-from-home, Christmas is around the corner meaning there’s even more reason to celebrate.


Crew Figures


The brand offers a quirky and memorable gift for all occasions. For animal lovers and pet owners, we have good news – they also specialise in pet models, with its dedicated pet line Pawsome 852 to model you and your pet – or just your pet – to have as a keepsake. The perfect gifting option for pet lovers!

Baking Bark


Launching last year, Baking Bark provides a wide variety of homemade treats for your furry friend. Made to order and tested by the Chief Executive Taster, Bella the bulldog, Baking Bark is packed with natural ingredients minus the preservatives and other nasties often found in other dog treats. Spoil your best friend this year with a selection of Christmas goodies, including naughty and nice biscuits, reindeer poop, decorative (and edible) baubles for the tree, or splash out with a Christmas gift box while stocks last.




Vetopia


Founded by two veterinarians, Vetopia was developed on top of Creature Comforts, one of Hong Kong’s leading vet clinics. Every product on Vetopia, the online store, is vet-certified and approved to ensure that pooches get the best of the best. Order a Buddy Box to treat your pooch on a regular basis (monthly subscription box) or some of the festive and adorable ZippyPaws products.




Woof Pack


Every pet is unique and what better way to showcase your pooch’s individuality than with a personalised keepsake. Proudly made in Hong Kong, Woof Pack is providing a selection of bespoke gifts including bandanas with festive themes such as gingerbread men, candy canes, peppermint swirls and much more. Festive bow ties are also available in a variety of Christmas styles; as well as an exclusive Christmas-themed squeaky toy to pacify even the most serial chewers. Order before December 20 to get your delivery before Christmas Eve.




Buddy Bites


Buddy Bites offer Adult and Puppy kibble, delivered free around Hong Kong, with your monthly subscription. They also donate 1kg of food to HK dog shelters, for every 2kgs they sell. They are nearly covering all of the food needed at Catherine’s Puppies and will be looking for their next shelter partner soon—what better way to give back this Christmas than by supporting this HK start-up in their aim to feed all sheltered dogs in Hong Kong.
