Christmas Gift for Pets at Staples: Inexpensive Gifts for Dogs

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review . The opinions in my review are honest and my own.

If there is one thing I love about Black Friday, it is finding the perfect gifts for everyone in my family. This year, we are adding pet items to our holiday list with Reya. Like most puppies, she grew up fast, leaving us frantically looking for new beds and other toys for our happy dog. As I was looking for adorable Christmas gift for Reya, I found some of the best pet deals at one of my favorite store – Staples! To say the least, I was even more excited when Staples asked me to review two of their hottest pet gift items – an Animal Planet Memory Foam Sherpa Bed and Sherpa Pet Throw. To say the least, Reya and I couldn’t wait to get started when they arrived!

Christmas Gift for Pets at Staples: Animal Planet Memory Foam Sherpa Bed

Like any pet owner will tell you, memory foam pet beds are very expensive. While they are wonderful for dogs of all ages, they are a bit of an investment if you want a nice one. When I found out that Staples was going to have an Animal Planet Memory Foam Sherpa Bed as part of their holiday gift guide, I was pretty excited, especially with it being available for only $29.99. Many retailers are selling this bed for $50 – $60, making this an awesome deal for large dogs.

My husband and I just had one major questions – would this bed last our very large puppy? While it claimed to be durable, we weren’t for sure if it would be durable enough. To say the least, I was super impressed. While this bed feels like a nice, fluffy memory foam pillow, it also is very durable, designed to handle some pretty tough chewers. When Reya first saw this bed, it was the first thing she checked when she pounced it, tugging on the corners at full force as she made herself comfy on the memory foam. To say the least, Staples outdid themselves when they chose this bed for their gift guide. If Reya’s reaction to the bed says anything, I think the Animal Planet Memory Foam Sherpa Bed will be a hit with any large dog!

Christmas Gift for Pets at Staples: Animal Planet Sherpa Throw

Do you have a pet that loves to snuggle with you on the couch? If so, both of you will love this Animal Planet Sherpa Throw. This throw has a luxurious Sherpa lining and a soft out cover that goes with just about everything. Best of all, it is available for only $12.99, making it the perfect gift for pet lovers. My only problem with this blanket is that Reya didn’t want to share. Every time I tried snuggling with her she pulled the blanket away from me and snuggled back under it. I guess we can say she likes it since she doesn’t want to share!

Christmas Gift for Pets at Staples: Overall

Personally, I think Staples outdid themselves with their selection of pet toys this holiday season. Not only are they high quality, but the perfect price for any owner who is hoping to have a few small gift under the tree for their favorite pet. I seriously can’t believe I could have purchased both of these products for Reya for under $45 at Staples. Based on my own experience with these products, I can’t wait to do more holiday shopping at Staples and give their pet selection an A+ rating. Now, if only I can get Reya to share that Sherpa throw…

      Reya is a little drama queen when you get out a camera. Normally she isn’t a big fan of blankets but wanted this over her. She has also been dragging it around the house!

    I did not know Staples had such great ideas for gift ideas for pets. I may have to get that bed as our dog really loves sleeping on our memory foam bed.

    How cute! I bet my Grandma's dog, Bob, would love a blankie or bed for Christmas.

    Do you consider pets part of your family? I do. Do you treat them same as if they are real people? I do, they have feelings too. I think they also deserve part of the fun during Christmas time enjoying their gifts too. They are so special and deserve to be acknowledged too, do you agree?

    • Susan Bewley November 26, 2013 at 9:52 am - Reply

      I agree! We always very loosely wrap gifts for the animals so that they can take part in the festivities. THey may not understand what is going on but they want to be their humans and join in on the fun!

    I do not usually give my dogs gifts for Christmas since they cannot read the calendar or go to church but, at 29.99 those sherpa beds look like a great deal.

    It seems so strange to me that Staples would sell stuff for dogs! Looks like it would be a nice bed.

    Thank you for giving an honest review.  I was thinking of new beds for my dogs this holiday season, but often they are very expensive and lack durability.  I have four dogs, (2 being puppies) so durabilty is important.  I will be checking this out at Staples.  Thank you.

    This is great! My sister has a huge mutt named Charlie. He tries really hard to sleep in his sisters tiny bed. She is a Chihuahua. I think this is a great gift idea for my "fur-nephew" πŸ™‚

    I didn't know Staples sold these!  I have been looking to get my guys some new pillows – their old ones are about worn through in the middle. These are at a fabulous price!  And my little dog loves snuggling in blankets and my big dog loves using them as a pillow. I know where I'm going to stop next payday. πŸ™‚

    My cat would love this. She loves wrapping up in blankets, sheets, towels, etc. The foam bed would just be icing on the cake for her.

    I have a 12 year old border collie named Lady and I normally buy her therapeutic dog beds. This seems like a great gift for my brother-inlaw's dog Crosby though!

    My shorthaired dog gets cold in the winter; this would be great for her. I'm glad I found out about this.

    Beautiful dog. Dogs like new toys too. The thing to make sure you do is make sure they are safe for the dog. Chew things – make sure they wont harm the dog when they eat pieces of them. In toys – no sweakers – sometimes they swallow them

    • Susan Bewley November 26, 2013 at 11:46 pm - Reply

      Yes, you always have to be careful of squeekers. I have to get double stitched, reinforced toys for Reya.

    I'm paralyzed and I love my memory foam bed. If I didn't have one I would have to wake up every 2 hours to turn so I don't form pressure sores.  I know any dog would be just as comfy on a memory foam bed especially if they have any form of arthritis.

    I had no idea that Staples carried pet items.  We have two dogs and they are our babies right now. I have a short gift list and they make it.

    Same as all the above…never knew Staples expanded the sales line to include pet items.  Good move on their part.   I hear Staples & think "office".  Now I know better.

    I had no idea Staples even had pet items! Guess I haven't been there in a while! I just won my cat, Diamond a cat toy. So I'm going to give some of my kids old , blankets that they have to the animals at the animal shelter. Although it's not a new item, I can't afford new even for my kids/pets this year. so I hope they will help some poor homeless pet out πŸ™‚ 

    I have 5 cats and 3 dogs. but only one cat lives with me, the others are at my parents as i can only have one pet where i am, and i had to fight to keep her. shes 8 πŸ™‚

    What a cutie pie. I have a mixed breed of German Shepherd and Husky. She is cream and tan and has gold eyes. Her name is Sorcha. She is a goofball. I am sure she would love this also and who would have thought Staples would have this? Thank you for your review.
