Invest in Pet Pampering For The Holidays

Last month, as part of the BlogPaws Pet Blogger Influencer Group, myself and many others filled out a survey answering questions about our holiday shopping trends for our pets. The results are in and have been compiled in a festive infographic. Check it out and then I'll tell you more about our responses below.


* Online vs. in store shopping. This year, I've done both. I've picked up a few things for Truffles in local stores, and other items I've purchased from Amazon and Etsy.

* Annual budget. I come in at under $50. I'm pretty frugal and Truffles already has so, so much.

* Pet blogs. I definitely use other pet blogs as a gift resource. They are how I discovered Petmate's line of Jackson Galaxy toys, and the Gingerbread House Cat Scratchers available at Target.

* Holiday cards. This year Truffles starred in her very first Christmas card!

* Gift guides. Truffles produced her first annual list of favorite treats of the year that would be purr-fect for stocking stuffers. I wrote a Tortie Shorties: Christmas Edition post highlighting a few of my favorite new Christmas books.

* Holiday attire photos. I went all out dressing Truffles up for Halloween, so I went easy on her for Christmas and depended on PicMonkey for her festive attire.

Tell us about your pet pampering spending this year!

  1. We're lucky to get so much free stuff, we didn't need to spend any $ on gifts for our spoiled kitties. The stats are fascinating!

  2. I bought most of our Secret Paws gifts and Carmine and Milita's presents at the store (and some at Cat Care's Meow Mart, which benefits the adoptable kitties). I only had to order Milita's present from Amazon because it's not available in the store.

    We loved your treat and book reviews! :)

  3. With pawticipating in Secret Paws and some of the things we have received to review, we probably won't get much else for Christmas, though I did ask for a new scratcher. ~Wally

  5. I see packages under the tree but none of them have my name on them. YOu know what, thought? I'm going to take all the paper and roll in it. That's plenty for me. - Crepes.

  6. I definitely used online shopping for kitty presents and got the idea from blogging friends. WE've been doing our Catmus cards for several years now. So I think we fall right in line with the inforgraphic!

  7. I took that survey but lost the link. MOL! TW did my shopping both in store and online. She didn’t buy as much as she usually does cos she says I get a Secret Paws package. I didn’t get my usual cat tree cos Pop bought me one during the summer. I always get cards and stamps to send out.

  8. We had our very first Christmas card of our own this year. Mom and Dad bought us two biggish gifts this, year or so that's what we've heard. One was purchased at PetSmart and one on-line. Mom usually does all her shopping on-line. Ho, ho, ho, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  9. We can totally believe these stats, but it is fascinating to see them all in one infographic! :)
