Just in case you feel that you haven’t spoiled your pooch enough, or just need another excuse to do so (we’ve got plenty!), don’t fret, the holiday season is not yet over! As they say… new year, new me dog.
There are a lot of great things that you can get for your dog over the holiday season - some affordable, some delicious, some practical. So whether your dog is on Santa Paws’ naughty or nice list this year, we’re here to help you make sure that you and your pup rings in the new year in style!
We’ve listed some of our favorite (fur-avorite) holiday gifts for your dog below!
1. PET PLAY Brunch Collection
Our favorite dog plushies at BYOP are Pet PLAY’s Brunch Collection. From the Egg’s Benedict with a detachable egg, squeakers in the bun, and a ham that crinkles, to the Buddy Mary plushie that comes with a crunchy bottle, crinkle in the lime, and a bungee shrimp, these plushies will for sure stimulate multiple senses on your pooch! These plushies are a great size, able to withstand even the toughest biters, and we love that they are essentially a 3-in-1 toy (aka a bang for your buck!).
Does your dog love treats, but eats them too quickly? Need a distraction before sneaking out of the house before your dog notices? This toy from West Paw is both a puzzle and treat toy, designed to be filled with a dog's favorite kibble or treats, giving your dog the ability to use its nose to nudge the treats out. A great tip is to add yogurt or peanut butter with fruit, or your pup’s favorite treat, freeze the Topple, and voila, endless hours of distraction and playtime!
3. Puptails (@puptails_hk)
Who says pups can’t have fun during yappy hour as well? A local Hong Kong small and woman-owned business, Puptails, creates vet-approved broth-based cocktails made with hormone-free Australian chicken, and contain nothing but human-grade ingredients.

5. Freeze Dried Wagyu Cuts by Beasty

How We Roll - Eco Friendly Products designed in Australia
How We Roll (HWRco) is committed to making sustainable eco alternatives easily accessible. BYOP and HWR believes that it only takes one sustainable change at a time to make a start towards minimising our individual waste.
HWR’s 100% Compostable Poop Bags, priced similar to other poop bags, are made from corn starch and are 100% Certified Compostable & Biodegradable Dog Waste Bags. A box comes with four rolls (15 bags per roll) and as we’ve tested, feel great, are great for the environment, and are even bigger than the other poop bags we’ve used! HWR also works with One Tree Planted to donate towards reforesting and conservation efforts for every AUD100 spent on HWRco products. Let’s work together to cherish and save the planet that we all need.
