Whether your dream of getting a new pet for the Christmas is coming true (seriously, is there anything cuter than watching a puppy or kitten jump out of a ribbon-topped box?!) or you already have a furry friend, the holidays are the perfect time to show them a little extra love and attention. FoodNetwork.com and Food Network Magazine editors, Michelle Baricevic and Erica Finamore, packed this gift guide full of adorable picks for good boys and girls, big and small. Choose your favorites to give your furry friend something to open on Christmas morning and ensure they have the happiest paw-liday season!

Is there anything better on a cold winter's night than a steamy cup of chocolatey cocoa? No, we didn't think so. Though your pup won't be able to drink any with you, they can still play with their own cup thanks to this abarkable hide-and-sneak plush toy. Best part of all — unlike your human-version, your pup’s marshmallows will only disappear for a second or two.
