Does your dog have a stocking with her name on it? Do your friends think you’re a tiny bit special for it? Don’t mind them; they’re boring. Instead, check out our winter picks, which just happen to be ideal stocking stuffers.

1. Santa’s Little Squeakers from P.L.A.Y.

Trim your tree and spoil your dog at the same time with these ridiculously cute toys from P.L.A.Y. They’re filled with stuffing spun from recycled plastic bottles and squeak delightfully when mauled. There’s also a five-piece gift set.

$6.50 and up at petplay.com

2. Fashion vest from Gooby

Our new favorite bomber jacket for dogs is surprisingly lightweight with a water-resistant shell. Extra points for the zipper at the back, which makes for easy dressing.

$30 and up at goobypet.com

3. Pocket Leash by Paco Collars

This one is for everyone sick of lugging a massive leash to the park. True to its name, you can stash it in your pocket, or use the O-ring on the handle to clip it across your body as a chic alternative.

$45 at pacocollars.com

4. Wellies boots by Canada Pooch

Wellington boots are officially no longer just for humans. Pick up this pair for the cuteness factor, and keep them around to prevent your pup from sliding around slick or snowy streets.

$17.99 CAD and up at canadapooch.com
