Edible Holiday Gifts for Dogs and Dog Lovers

With holiday food and fun overflowing, I love to give gifts that are easily contained and carried — and are adorable, too! Mason jars are all the rage right now, and it’s no surprise why. They are the perfect container for all edible holiday gifts:

Recipe for Dogs: Layered “Gingerdog” Jars

Easy to make and easy on your wallet, these layered jars include all the dry ingredients for a holiday dog treat so the recipients can make them for their dogs.

Mason jars are available in many sizes, so you can double these up or cut them in half depending on your jar and how many pups your recipient has.

What you’ll need:

  • Mason jar
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup quick (not instant) oats
  • 2 tablespoons ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon cloves
  • Bone-shaped (or other dog-themed) cookie cutter

Additional ingredients for when the cookies are ready to be made:

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup molasses

Directions:

Layer the flours and oats in your jar, and top with the spices. To make the gift complete, tie on the recipe card and a cookie cutter.

Recipe for Humans: Pupcake in a Jar

These people-only snacks will bring a smile to the face of any dog lover. Putting them in the Mason jar makes a usually messy dessert easy to travel with, fun to eat and keeps them fresh for up to a week!

What you’ll need:

  • Mason jar
  • Your favorite cake mix — I love spice cake or gingerbread for the holidays
  • Icing — I recommend using a decorator’s icing, which is thicker and will hold your design. You can make this or buy it at a craft store.
  • Food dye (optional) — these are perfect in white, but if you want to match a dog’s coat or make them in holiday colors, you can color your icing.
  • Black icing — you can color the white icing or buy gel icing already colored black available at most grocery or craft stores
  • Piping bag
  • Icing tip — small open star (looks like it has teeth)

Directions:

  1. Bake your cupcakes and allow to cool.
  2. Cut in half and place one half in the jar.
  3. Add a layer of icing.
  4. Place other half of cupcake on top.
  5. Depending on your jar size, keep going with your cupcake layering until your jar is almost full. When you get to the top do not add more icing yet.
  6. Using the tip, create fur on the top layer, using upward motions until your cupcake is covered.
  7. Using the black icing, create eyes, a nose and a mouth.
  8. Close up the jar and give the gift of a sweet puppy surprise.

Decorating your mason jars:

Mason jars are adorable on their own, but you might want to add a little extra pizzazz to your gift

  • Stick a holiday bow on top.
  • Using thick ribbon, tie a bow around the jar, just below the lid.
  • Cut out holiday fabric. Measure your jar lid and cut a circle 1 to 1 ½ inches larger. Center the fabric on top of your jar before closing the lid around it.
  • For a more rustic look, string yarn or raffia around the lid.
  • Put a festive sticker on top of the lid.

How to Deck the Halls for the Paw-lidays

The holidays are here, and many of us are busy finding those last minute gifts and adding the finishing touches to our holiday decorating.

My love of pets plays an important part in my home decor, and that doesn’t change when the holidays come around! Why should people get to have all of the holiday fun? From the Christmas tree, to holiday pet gear, I love to throw in as many pet-inspired decorations as I can.

What about you? If you’re looking for stylish ways to include your pets in your holiday decorating, look no further! Here are some of my favorite ideas for decking the halls, pet parent style.

7 Pet-Inspired Holiday Decorating Ideas

1. Hang Stockings for Your Pets

Giving them their own stockings is a paw-some way to include pets in the holiday fun. Make sure your pets’ stockings have their names on them or are pet-themed. And then stuff them with goodies like treats, toys, collars, or grooming supplies.

If you’re crafty, you can probably make your own pet stocking without too much trouble. If not, there are plenty of places where you can find them ready made.

Here are some ideas for stockings for dogs. And for your feline family members, these fish stockings would be purr-fect!

 

2. Add Pet-themed Ornaments to Your Christmas Tree

Or, even better, decorate an entire tree just for your furry family members. Buy a small tree at a craft store or a real tree stand and adorn it with meaningful pet-themed baubles.

You can find absolutely adorable ornaments on Etsy, and you can customize them with your dog’s name or breed.

Or, if you pre-fur, you can make your own. Here is a great tutorial for making super-cute ornaments using vinyl decals and clear plastic ornaments you can find at a craft store. Or you could create a one-of-a-kind keepsake by capturing your pet’s pawprint in an easy to make salt dough.

 

3. Plant Cat Grass in a Holiday Containercat grass kit

I love this idea because it doubles as a decoration and a gift for your kitty! You could use any mug or bowl you want – just add dirt and seeds. Or you could try this convenient kit from Chewy.com

4. Buy a New Bed for Your Pet

If you want to keep some of your holiday decorating a little more on the functional side, try buying your pet a new bed in a red, green, or festive holiday print. This will add a pop of holiday fun to any festive room, while giving your furry friend a cozy place to curl up and enjoy the festivities.

5. Decorate With Toys

Speaking of functional, here’s another idea that’s both stylish and fun! Spruce up your pet’s collection of playthings with some holiday toys and stuff a toy basket for all to see. Even when your dog leaves his chew toys laying around, they’ll be adding to your holiday theme! I LOVE these from the Barkshop!

6. Wrap Gifts in Paw Print Paper

Do you buy just as many gifts for your furry family members as you do for the human ones? I know I do! And why not? They’ve been good all year, too! Your pet’s gifts will really stand out under the tree if you wrap them in their own special paw-print paper!

7. Add Some Outdoor Holiday Pet Cheer

When it comes to decorating, you don’t have to stop with the inside of your house. You can have just as much fun adding holiday pet cheer to the outside! While you’re hanging wreaths, stringing up lights, and adorning your yard with sleighs or elves, why not throw in some pet-themed decorations too?

 

 

By keeping your pets in mind when you deck the halls (and making sure that they get some extra attention too), you’ll make sure that they enjoy the holiday season just as much as you do!
