15 Ornaments That Establish Your Pet’s Top-Billing Status at the Holidays
Your love for your pet is evergreen, so hang an ornament of their likeness on your Christmas tree this year.
Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)
Decorating the Christmas tree is altogether the most frustrating and entertaining activity of the holiday season, next to getting your mom to tell you what she actually wants, instead of “your presence is my present.” The process usually involves a ladder and stretching your body at unnatural angles as you hang ornaments on the tallest, most awkward branches of the tree. The entertainment part comes in as your dog watches you complete this ritual, while they cock their head in confusion and your cat looks at you with disdain and plots their plan to knock the tree topper to its death.

Below, the 15 look-alike Christmas ornaments that will help you celebrate your pet (or at least a miniature version of them) as they decorate the highest, most coveted branches on the tree.
