The cat mom or admirer in your life will certainly appreciate any gift that honors their child so elegantly. Alex Friesen’s custom embroideries are becoming more and more difficult to get on the waitlist for because they can take up to 60 hours to make. If you’re looking for a homemade gift without having to actually make it, this one’s a great choice.
How fitting is it that your little weirdo cat friend would be perched atop your desk, cast in ceramic glaze, creepily staring at you, as they do every day? We appreciate a gift that’s true to form, and if we’re being honest, the real portrait here is more personality than surface level.
Handcrafted, stamped, and glazed in Los Angeles, Kibble and Bone believes your pet should be dining in style. If these gorgeous bowls — which come in Classic ceramic, Poppy red, Mojito mint, and glossy Midnight black colorways — aren’t selling themselves, consider that for every bowl purchased, the brand donates dog food to LA’s Wags and Walks animal rescue.
Little L’s Dog Bakery was founded after Lenny Forde scoured his neighborhood for healthy, wholesome ingredients to create homemade dog treats for his pups Lily and Lulu. Forde shared the treats with his community of dog parents and word got out. Little L’s “krak’ems” and “woofulls” are made with human-grade meat and other healthful ingredients, such as banana and blueberries, at Forde’s pet bakery in Brooklyn.
Austin-based Nana and Marcus Pfeifer started Homescape Pets after losing their first pup to cancer. “We knew we couldn’t save her life, but we could give her a better quality of life. That included less hardcore drugs and more of what nature provides,” they say. After consulting with integrative veterinarians, they developed all-natural joint supplements, CBD oil, and single-ingredient chews that are all chemical-and-toxin-free, made in the U.S., and contain only organically grown herbs. The Pfeifers also support local shelters, including Austin Pets Alive.
Made with a cornstarch blend, these eco-friendly poop bags are extra thick, leak-proof, and unscented, so you can get the bare essentials without all of the extra fluff.

The first ever no-tear poop bag rolls, Diggs’ Klenex style rolls make it easy to clean up after your dog on walks. This way, you won’t have to worry about spilling your coffee while trying to separate the bags with one hand. The cardboard core is recyclable, which is always a win in the world of poop bags.
The tonic’s antibacterial and anti-fungal formula naturally mitigates itching; it loosens dirt and debris in the ear canal. Using organic aloe vera, witch hazel, neem oil, calendula oil, white willow bark, rosemary, and chamomile extracts, Major Darling’s all-natural handcrafted ear wash and skin tonic relaxes your pup by soothing irritation caused by allergens.
It’s hard to believe it has been almost eight years since the video of a rat dragging a full slice of pizza down the subway steps went viral. It was the perfect marriage of two iconic NYC symbols, which makes this hand-made toy about as New York as it gets. That said, it is a bit on the pricey side, so probably better for gentler pups.
If you’re looking to add just a touch of Barbie to your pet’s wardrobe, consider this custom acrylic collar tag. Plus, this accessory is actually available in blue (in addition to pink, obvs) if you’re a Barbie with a penchant for an expanded color palette.
This cat collar is seriously identical to Barbie’s iconic gingham dress in the movie. However, unlike Barbie’s dress, this collar features an adorable fish clip and a little bell. And as Greta Gerwig made clear in her masterpiece, it’s all about the details.
