Only the best for your pet.
The holidays are a time of family gatherings, indulging in elaborate cheese boards, and exchanging gifts. If you’re anything like us, your pet pal is included on the holiday gift giving list. Maybe they’re even up there before your very own human sibling. We appreciate people like you for loving your dog, cat, rabbit, fish, snake or lizard as much as we do, and so we wanted to clue you into some of the best gifts for Fido or Fisho this year.
Maybe you want your dog to have a matching, lengthy self care routine as you, and a supplement cabinet as stocked as yours. Maybe you want your cat to travel in style. Maybe you want your pet to be so secure in the love you have for them, you commission a portrait of their sweet little face to hang where they can see it at all times. You, and more importantly, they can have all of this.
So if your pet also has a stocking dangling from the mantle, consider stuffing it with the following gifts.
Let’s be real, the home you’re in is your pet’s home. We’re just lucky to be able to live in their kingdom under their benevolent rule. There’s a way to illustrate your love. Literally. West & Willow portraits will turn a picture of your pet into a stunning gallery wall centerpiece.
