Nobody makes a better valentine than your pet. They’re always excited to see you when you get home, they make excellent spooning buddies, and most of all, they offer endless, unconditional love. We should celebrate them every day (and we do!), but Valentine’s Day is an excuse to go just a little bit further in expressing how much our pets mean to us.
Here our some of our favorite Valentine’s Day picks for the pets and pet people that you love.
Not all cats love being showered with kisses, but we’re sure they’ll appreciate being showered with Honest Kitchen’s delicious Smittens. Made of 100% Icelandic haddock and only 1.1 calories per piece, these treats are so good and wholesome you can say “I love you” again, and again, and again.
While you may have heard otherwise, sometimes it’s good to play with a heart. Case in point: These adorable toys from Jax & Bones. The hearts are hand-dyed with non-toxic vegetable dyes, and the fraying rope acts as dental floss for your pup’s pearly whites.
Swanky Kitty caters to the discerningly stylish cat. Their styles are unique and chic, and their breakaway buckles mean their collars are as safe as they are functional. This collar is so cute and colorful that your cat can wear it long after February 14th has come and gone.
Nothing says “I love dogs” like a Bulldog in heart-shaped sunglasses. Pair this gift with a bag of beans from shelter- funding Grounds and Hounds Coffee Co. (from $8.50, GroundsAndHoundsCoffee.com). The dog enthusiast in your life will feel your love with every sip.
Flowers are a classic Valentine’s gift, but dogs don’t get much joy from a dozen roses. Instead, treat the canine in your life to a bouquet of felt flower toys from Barkmade. Multiple blooms make this a perfect choice for a multiple-pooch household.
What’s Valentine’s Day without chocolate? Our animal friends can’t exactly indulge, but your kitty will certainly enjoy this unique, pet-friendly chocolate-dipped strawberry with the taste and fun of high-quality organic catnip.
All-natural treats sweetened with molasses and wildflower honey make these the perfect gift for your doggie sweetheart. Just watch out, the peanut butter apple cake recipe is so good that your pup might beg for these year-round.
