Leading New York retailer, Harvey’s Pet, offers a carefully curated selection of winter holidays gift suggestions for even the most precocious pets
Johnstown, NY – Regarding pets, John Grogan, the New York Times bestselling author of books such as ‘Marley & Me,’ has said, “It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.”
Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa or even Festivus, if you’ve spent the past 18 months+ enjoying an unexpected and unprecedented amount of time at home snuggled up to your darling pet, it only makes sense to shower them with extra love in all its forms – namely with gifts. Pets love gifts.

Some 56% plan to do so this year.

A word to enthusiastic holiday shoppers out there: Shipping delays are to be expected, so shop early as you wouldn’t want to let down your furry or feathered family member. Yes, we understand that the average pet may not recognize that Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa are significant cultural, religious, and/or commercial celebrations in many regions of the world. Do our furry friends know when it’s their Birthday either? No. Will your best pet friend be uber-thrilled to get even more attention from you followed by a special treat from Santa Paws anyway? Heckin’ yeah!
