The wonderful people at Target were kind enough to give me and Keep the Tail Wagging’s community a sneak peek at the Target Holiday Look Book to see what’s coming for our Fur-Holidays (I should trademark that! – it’s probably taken – LOL).
The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays makes me happy. I start warming up to the cooler weather, I love the Nutcracker theme that plays on commercials, and I even love Black Friday (although I spend most of that morning at pet stores).
When I went through the Target Holiday Look Book, I chose items to share with you based on our love of animals and what we as dog parents would find most useful and fun…
Check out my Fur-Holidays Pinterest board to see more of my holiday wish list items!
If you’re like us, you let your dogs on the furniture. We don’t want our house to look tacky with random blankets tossed here and there so I love the idea of these throws. Anything that can stand up to paws, the occassional smell dog, and a weekly washing great!
If the fur throws aren’t your style, I love these cable knit ones. Our home has a country feel wth the wrap around deck and I love it. These throws would look amazing on our furniture; dressing up a room while protecting the furniture is always a win win.
It’s always a great idea to stock up on winter gear for the dog park. I dress in layers, choosing my boyfriend’s warm hoodies to wear beneath my winter coats. I even double up on gloves on the really cold days. The dogs aren’t as bothered by the cold weather as I am. In fact, those freezing temps seem to energize them, which means that we’ll be walking 3-5 miles. I’m cold just thinking about it!
I love taking pictures of our dogs. I have an entire Flickr set devoted to them, because they are so darn adorable. A good camera is a great investment and I think all dog owners should treat themselves to a camera that can give them quality images of their fur babies. Nowadays, you can turn those images into paintings, postcards, holiday cards, and more. Love it!
So far everything has been for the fur parents; so here are a few things for th fur kids. Kitty toys, because if you have dogs, you might have a cat too. Dog toys (the stuffed toys with no eyes for our fur kids to swallow – smart move Target), and the craft ornaments (the dog is my favorite).
So that’s it for now. When I find new ideas from my favorite stores, I’ll share them with you. Hopefully, I’m saving you a big headache by giving you these great gift ideas!
