My dog loves to open up gifts at Christmas.
I don’t mean just receiving them, I mean actually opening them up.
I’ll wrap them up in soft tissue paper and hand him the gift.
He’ll give it a few sniffs and then use his paws to rip it open.
For that reason, I always get my dog gifts for his birthday and Christmas. I love to see his happy face when he sees his new present.
From toys, treats, clothes and accessories—there’s so many options, but not all are worthy as gifts. We’re narrowing it down to the top 32 things to get your dog this holiday. Since all these can be found on Amazon, almost everyone can order them and get them before the holiday with plenty to time to spare!
Dog Gifts: What to Consider
- Personality— What does your dog like? Is he more of a squeaky toy dog? Or does he prefer tug-of-war type games? Or perhaps he enjoys interactive toys to pass his days. Keep his playful personality in mind when selecting toys.
- Dietary restrictions— Treats are also a great gift, but keep in mind your dog’s likes and dislikes. Is he sensitive to any ingredients? Does she have any favorite flavors?
- Wrapping— If your dog is like mine, he may love to open up his gifts. If you want, try it out for yourself. Although my dog could open regular wrapping paper, it’s easiest to do on his own using tissue paper.
- Splitting Gifts— If you have more than one doggo, you may wish to split up treat gifts into their own individual packages. This way, they can both open up their gifts and you don’t need to spend money on an extra bag.
- Sizing— There’s a few doggy clothing options on this list. If you choose one, here’s a few tips to get the sizing right. Instead of randomly purchasing by guessing, use a fabric tape measure (or string and regular measure) to get your dog’s dimensions. Then, compare them to the brand’s sizing chart. Also, check reviews to see what sizing worked for similar sized breeds. If you want, you can sort the reviews by pictures to get a better idea.

Using the tips above, scroll through these finds to select the best Amazon Christmas Present for your dogs.
#1 Doggo Ice Cream
Okay, I know it may be the middle of winter where you live, but I promise your dog doesn’t discriminate against ice cream. Even on a freezing cold day, she’ll still gobble down a few scoops. Puppy Scoops is a mix that you add water to and freeze. Whenever you’re ready, simply pull it out and serve it up. There’s many flavors for every pup’s palette:
- Maple Bacon for $8.99
- Peanut Butter for $8.99
- Vanilla for $8.99
- Pumpkin for $8.99
- Carob (dog-safe chocolate flavor) for $8.99
- Blueberry for $9.99
Pawsative Ruffview: “The ice cream was a hit. I bought this for my dog for her birthday. She loved it. Even my cats got to taste it and they liked it. And …. don’t tell anyone, but because of the ingredients, I licked the spoon to see what it tasted like. I’m impressed. I’m not going to sit down and eat a bowl of this stuff, but it didn’t make me gag. It just tasted like salty, bacon flavored milk. I’ll buy this again for MY DOG for other special occasions.”
#2 BarkBrew Chicken Ale Dog Beer
Many people enjoy a nice cocktail during the holiday season, so why shouldn’t your dog? This variety pack comes with beef and chicken ale which can be used as a liquid treat, food topper or frozen. Of course, it doesn’t actually contain alcohol.

Other options include:
Pawsative Ruffview: “It was my dogs 3rd birthday(21st) and we had some of his friends over and that really liked it.”
#3 Pet Winery’s Dog Champagne
How will your dog toast without his own champagne/wine? Now she can! This all-natural drink is enriched with wild Alaskan salmon oil to help promote a healthy coat and skin. It can also be frozen for a “champagne pop” treat. Don’t worry, this one is also non-alcoholic.
#4 Gumby Dog Toy
If you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on dog gifts, this is one of our cheapest recommendations. Gumby is a random… green thing? that’s plush-filled and comes with a squeaker. To be honest, we’re not really sure what it’s supposed to be but it has so many excellent reviews.
Pawsative Ruffview: “Gumby has been in my home for about two weeks now. My dog grabbed Gumby out of my hand when I took it out of the box and it has become his new favorite toy. Everywhere that he goes in the house, Gumby is hanging out of his mouth. If he is laying down somewhere, Gumby isn’t far away. He treats this toy different than the other ones that I have purchased for him. It’s not a chew toy to him and he doesn’t throw it around. He just holds it in his mouth. All the time. It’s just odd but we are going with it because it seems to make him happy.”

#5 Dog Christmas Onesie
If it’s cold where you live, snuggling up may be a lot easier in a onesie. Also, they look super adorable on doggos. If your pup likes clothes, check out these adorable snowman onesies. They also come in an owl design. If you’re looking for more holiday options, read: 6 Dog Christmas Onesie: The Most Festive and Adorably Doggy PJS.

#7 Dog + Family Matching Pajamas
Here’s a gift for the whole family! These designs come in every size imaginable for you, your dog kids and your actual kids. We’ve featured one design here, but we have an entire post of more options. Read: Snug Up with These Dog and Human Matching Christmas Pajamas: 7+ Options.
Pawsative Ruffview: “My extended family decided to do matching PJ’s for each family member. We got ours (including for our doggo) and they are amazing. They are very soft and fit perfectly. Our dog is a Chi and weighs about 5 pounds. The XS was a little big for her, but I was able to roll up the sleeves and she was good to go.”
#8 Puzzle Brick Dog Toy
This interactive 2-level toy allows you to hide treats under the compartments. The compartments shift around and can be lifted up using your dog’s nose. It provides mental and physical stimulation while also being easy to clean. He’ll be busy all Christmas day!
Pawsative Ruffview: “Bar none, the brick puzzle is the best toy/treat/activity item I have ever, ever purchased for my 9 1/2 lb Yorkie. Piper is totally food motivated; willful, stubborn, and way too smart! This puzzle is a perfect size, extremely durable (believe me, Pipe beats the s%#* out of it), just difficult enough to keep her attention and desire, but not so much as to frustrate her.”

#9 Wabble Wag Giggle Ball
This ball features a tube inside that emits giggle sounds (and it doesn’t even require batteries!). There’s 6 pockets for your dog to grab easily as he rolls, fetches and shakes the ball.
Pawsative Ruffview: “I have a 7 month old Corgi puppy and this was his favorite toy out of all his toys he got for Christmas! He loves it so much that I have to put it up and away just so I can sleep. It’s sturdy and not way too noisy. (I live in an apartment). His toy preference is for toys that make noise instead of plush toys without squeakers. It’s lasted a whole week of play without any problems unlike another toy he already tore up, so it seems durable, at least for small to medium breeds.”
Get the Wabble Ball for $11.99
#10 Treat Throwing Dog Camera
If you work away from your dog, give him a gift that he can use every day. This camera allows you to see and hear your dog from your smartphone. Since the audio is two-way, he can hear your praise too! It can also throw out small treats whenever you want. If you want to see other options, read our Full-Guide on the Best 6 Dog Cameras According to Reviews.
Pawsative Ruffview: “I love being able to watch my pug literally just sleeping for seven hours a day and my coworkers really enjoy the constant updates of me telling them where my pug is sleeping and forcing them to watch his small, fawn body laying in the same spot. I have learned that my cat must leave the house when I go to work because I never catch her on the camera. Maybe she has a job? It would be nice if she paid some rent. The treat shooting mechanism shoots small treats, which is fine for him, well maybe not for him because he’d prefer it shot pizza slices, but they’re the proper size treats for a smaller dog.”
Get the Dog Camera for $199
#11 12 Pack of Adorable Dog Toys
While we don’t recommend this one for strong chewers, it’s a good idea for gentle dogs who love everything cute. Ranging from ice cream and donuts to bananas and a baby bottle, this pack comes with 12 adorable squeaky plush toys. You can even same some as gifts for other special occasions.
Pawsative Ruffview: “They are all stuffed animals, so creative too in the choice of animals. My little Shih Tzu loves them and they all have squeakers in them. Well worth the price, just watch your dog if it is a chewer. Mines a squeaker and gentle on toys. He was so excited at Christmas for his new presents and plays with them a lot. I only gave him 2 to start with until he gets bored with them.”
Get the 12 pack for $15.99
#12 Hiding Squeaky Squirrel Toy
Smart pups are going to love this interactive toy. You simply place the small squirrels inside their tree trunk and watch your dog try to find and get them out. The large size is perfect for big breeds while the mini size is ideal for little runts 🙂
Pawsative Ruffview: “My dog LOVES this toy. I gave it to her for Christmas and it’s still the only thing she wants to play with. Usually she gets bored with toys in a week. It’s been about four weeks and she still loves her hedgehogs. It didn’t take her long to figure out how to get the toys out. It used to keep her busy for a while but now it takes about 10 seconds for her to get them all out. She’s gotten very fast at getting the hedgehog’s out. She still loves to play with them and wants me to load them back up. I always make sure to load them up before I go to work in the morning and they are always all over the house when I get home.”
Get the Squirrel Dog Gift for $13.99
#13 Gingerbread Burrow Toy
If you’re into holiday dog toys, choose the Christmas version of the one above. These gingerbreads hide inside their house waiting for your doggo to find them.

Get these Extra Soft Dog Nest for $16.99
#15 Wild Bear Knotted Toy by Kong Christmas Toy
Kong is one of my favorite dog toy brands because it takes my dog A LOT longer to destroy them. Rather than being filled with regular plush, it has a knotted rope inside, making it good for tough chewers. Since the outside is still covered in soft fabric, my pup likes it as much as plush (sometimes he gets bored with hard canvas material toys). This is one of my top recommendations!
Pawsative Ruffview: “I bought this for my 8 week old Dane puppy. It quickly became his go to toy. It’s been his favorite from the day he came home. He’s now 12 weeks and believe me, it’s gotten a LOT of abuse!! Lol, he gnaws, shakes & tugs at this poor bear for hours every day and it STILL looks great! No tears, unless you count the fact that he’s managed to loosen a couple of the decorative patches that tempted Ruger enough that he felt they needed to be removed. He hasn’t managed it yet, but give him time! They’re only to make the bear cuter, just cosmetic.”
Get the Kong Teddy Bear Toy for $19.10
#16 Designer Dog Cologne
Omg. I can’t tell you how much I love this dog spray. It makes my dog smell amazing. It’s just like a regular man’s cologne, only instead of DKNY it DGNY (Dogs of New York). Spray him after a bath or whenever he’s smelling a little sh!tty 😉
Pawsative Ruffview: “Long lasting. Smells great.”

Pawsative Ruffview: “Lemon Drop got a Chewy Vuitton for her birthday. It’s her favorite purse LOL! She is a 6lb Papillon and it can be tricky to find toys small enough to fit in her jaws. I ordered this in size small and as you see in the pic it fits and she enjoys carrying it around. Just like a lady holding her clutch!”
Get this Dog Purse Toy for $12.99
#19 Cozy Waterproof Dog Reversible Jacket
This water-resistant jacket is perfect to wear during those snowstorm walks you can’t avoid. We also love that it’s reversible so your dog can select his fashion style each day. Comes in varying sizes to fit every breed.
Pawsative Ruffview: “A very well made coat and very warm. My dog can move around freely in it. I have an 18lbs shih tzu and he fit perfectly in the Medium. I haven’t had any issues with it and his harness clip can easily be accessed through the hole on the back.”
Get this Cozy Dog Jacket for $20.99

Pawsative Ruffview: “My baby is obsessed with these coffee look alike dog toys! He originally stole the puppermint mocha toy from our dog’s toy bin, and being that she’s a lab, she so graciously allowed him to acquire it as his own. I got him this toy so he could have a coffee mug like mommy and daddy and he loves it just as much as the other one.”

Pawsative Ruffview: “It’s sooooo cute!!!! Love it, used the photos for my Christmas card this year!!! I actually ordered a men’s small for the sweater because I didn’t see women’s in the one that I wanted, and it worked out great. I ordered the 14” length for my dog, also fit pretty well. It can be hard to find things that fit the lil guy, he is a beagle but a mix, his legs are long and skinny and he’s only 22 lbs. Just measure your dog’s back like they say and make your best guess.”

#24 Simply Turkey Freeze-Dried Treats
While you enjoy your nice turkey dinner, give your dog some of these. These all-natural, human-quality bites feature only turkey as the ingredients. It’s made in the USA and has no preservatives.
Pawsative Ruffview: “This brand is awesome, and I wish my local pet store carried them. I have tried (or my dog has tried) both the turkey and the lamb flavors; I love that these are all meat, no processing, no flavors, nothing else added to them – my dog has several food allergies and these are a great training/reward treat that are easy on his skin and stomach.”
#25 USA Turkey Strips
Another choice for your dog’s “turkey dinner” are these jerky treats. They’re only made with free range turkey and use no additives. They’re like chicken strips only for doggos!
Pawsative Ruffview: “My dog literally cannot get enough!! I usually put down 2 or 3 other treats at a time just to get an idea of what she really likes and these are almost always her top choice next to beef jerky. It takes her no less then 3 minutes to eat one and the length of each is about 2/3rds of a ruler. These treats are a moderate chew, not soft but not very hard either. Overall a great product.”

This cutely packed container has 50 treats in a variety of shapes such as paws, trees and bells. They’re made from human-grade ingredients and are freshly baked.

Will buy from this company again and recommend them to friends.”

Pawsative Ruffview: “Just gave a cookie to the dog on Christmas, and he loved it! He’s a an 18-lb terrier, not very big, so now I give him 1/3 or 1/2 of one. They are about the size of a standard Christmas cookie, so they’re big to give him a whole one. He has grain allergies, so I’ve not been able to get him real “cookies” before. This is a great treat.”

Pawsative Ruffview: “I have a finicky eater, my British Lab…but when I put a few of these Snowflake Vanilla treats on top, he eats his entire serving of food! They also make great training treats and they are easy to break apart to make them last longer.”

Pawsative Ruffview: “I’m a dog trainer and canine behaviorist. I have two Siberian huskies and we live in the desert… And its summertime. Needless to say, we only go out after dark. The pups wait out the sun with games, training, and lots of naps. Since buying the DogPacer, my dogs have stopped pacing the house every afternoon, bored out of their minds. Instead, they hop on the DogPacer and wait for me to turn it on! I love the pre-programmed workouts; they are a great challenge and confidence-builder.”
