Holiday gift ideas for cats and dogs that are affordable for pet owners

Holiday Hedgehogs by Ethical Pet

According to the 2017-2018 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, dog owners spend an average of $14 per gift and cat owners spend an average of $12 per gift for their pet.

Nearly one third of the country owns a pet, and those pet owners are estimated to spend nearly $70 billion on their pets by year’s end. It’s no surprise that we treat pets in America, like members of the family, which means including them on the holiday gift-giving. The American Pet Products Association (APPA) is pleased to offer pet owners great gifting options that won’t break the bank this season. According to the 2017-2018 APPA National Pet Owners Survey, dog owners spend an average of $14 per gift and cat owners spend an average of $12 per gift for their pet. APPA has rounded up some great gifting options from their members with that pricing in mind, all under $20. See what’s on the list for this year:
