The 2021 Luxury Holiday Gift Guide for dogs and their people by Atlanta dog photographer CM Bryson

What to give to your dog this holiday –

and a few ideas for you too!

This is my favorite time of year! I love cozy sweaters (even better if they are custom knitted to include my dog’s face – see below!). I love fires in the fireplace. I love the twinkling lights. And I love to spoil my dog with the best. So sit back and enjoy – I’ve rounded up the best of 2021 Holiday Gift Guide for Pet Loving People & Loved Pets!

Spoiling your dog & cat without breaking the bank!

1. Match Me – Dog Bandana & Scrunchie

The Foggy Dog is passionate about making pet products that are as beautiful as they are functional, because your best friend deserves the best. I wanted to start the 2021 Holiday Gift Guide with a gift that also gives back. Not only do you get a beautiful bandana, you also get a little gift for you, AND each time you purchase from The Foggy Dog, they donate half a pound of food to rescue shelters across America.


2. Catit PIXI Stainless Steel Fountain

The Catit PIXI Stainless Steel Fountain provides your cat with a continuous source of fresh, purified water. Running water encourages cats to drink more, which helps prevent urinary tract diseases. The fountain’s hygienic and high-grade stainless steel cover reduces chin acne in cats.


3. Groov Training Aid

Groov is a first-of-its-kind crate training tool that helps pups love their crates. It also doubles as a delicious pupsicle (comes with a freezer shell).


4. Evergreen Marine Rope Dog Leash

Your dog will turn heads at the dog park with this deep green marine rope paired with luxe brass hardware. Now available in a Petite size for smaller dogs, or Standard for larger dogs.

Gifts for pet lovers under $500 from the 2021 Holiday Gift Guide.

Because you & your pet enjoy a little bit of a splurge…

1. Sweater hound custom knit sweater

Take your love for your dog to the next level, knit him or her onto a sweater and wear it daily. Simply upload photo and they will knit you an awesome custom sweater. Made from recycled cotton and knitted in NYC.


2. The Cupcake Pet Bed

The Cupcake Pet Bed is a clever contemporary designed circular pet bed that is elevated off your floor to provide better temperature control. This bed is very convenient for those dogs and cats that want to sleep like a Queen or King. This handmade statement piece brings a cushy comfortable bed for a pet with an even cushier life.


3. Furbo Pet Camera

Ellen DeGeneres #1 Wish List Item for Dog Lovers! Furbo Dog Camera: Treat Tossing, Full HD Wifi Pet Camera and 2-Way Audio, Designed for Dogs, Compatible with Alexa


4. Pet Friendly GETAWAY

Give a giftcard to a pet friendly GETAWAY Outpost. Outposts are designed to be more than a destination, but a way to create distance from the relentless demands of work, schedules, and technology. Guests experience unscheduled, unstructured, and uninterrupted free time — not just for rest and rejuvenation, but to foster inspiration, creativity, and connection.


5. A Signature Pet Portrait Session

Of course, I couldn’t share a 2021 holiday gift guide without talking about my personal favorite gift – a portrait session! Puchase a gift certificate to wrap up & present and then enjoy an incredible experience with your dog in 2022.
