With the holidays coming up, sometimes we forget to spread the cheer to all of our family, including our furry friends. I enjoy making it a point to include my sweet dog into my holiday shopping, and I usually end up buying her plenty of gifts to last all year. I headed over to my local Walmart to pick up some great gift items to create a lovely gift set for my doggie. I couldn’t resist buying her a new bed, along with some great new toys, and I just had to get her these Milk-Bone Flavor Snacks and Pup-Peroni Original Beef Flavor treats I found in the dog treat aisle.

I love my dog like she’s my child, and being able to create this gift basket was a great way to celebrate her this season and make her feel special. Did you know that the Milk-Bone Flavor Snacks have the same vitamin enrichment and teeth cleaning ability as the Milk-Bone Original Biscuits but in five delicious flavors? Or how about how Pup-Peroni Original Beef Flavor has REAL BEEF as their first ingredient? I love being able to give back to my dog with delicious wholesome treats like these that I know she’ll love.

I just had to do something great for my sweet dog this year, so let me share with you how I created this wonderful gift set. I picked out toys, treats, even a special dog bed that I knew my baby would enjoy. Don’t forget about man’s best friend when you shop this holiday season. I hope you get inspired by this fun tutorial to get creative and make your doggie a special holiday gift. Here’s how I made my Pooch Approved Holiday Gift Set.


  • Milk-Bone Flavor Snacks
  • Pup-Peroni Original Beef Flavor Treats
  • Dog Bed
  • Assorted Toys
  • Bow

How I Put Mine Together:

Step One- I cut all the tags off of the dog toys so when Zoey dove into her gift set I didn’t have to worry about the danger of the tags.

Step Two- I used the dog bed as the base for my set and added the little toys into the bed and of course, the delicious treats I bought her.

Step 3- You could personalize this set any way you wanted by adding ribbon or a big bow, or even trying to wrap the whole thing in wrapping paper, however, for the safety of my dog, I decided to add a simple bow and just pulled it off as she was going through her gift set!

I just love my dog so much, and what better time to show her some extra love than the holiday season? I really liked the fact that I could get everything all in one place at my local Walmart, that saved me a ton of time from having to go to several stores like I usually do when I don’t shop at Walmart first.

Your dog will enjoy these yummy treats, too. Take advantage of the season and spend some extra time, get creative, and make your dog a great personalized gift set filled with their favorite toys, and I would highly recommend these treats for your gift basket. Dogs love the flavor of these treats and with five different flavors in the Milk-Bone Flavor Snacks, your dog will go nuts over them every time you give them one. The fact that the Pup-Peroni treats also have real meat as their first ingredient makes me feel good about giving them to my dog, too. Not to mention you don’t have to worry because these treats are made for dogs of all sizes!
