Our pets are a very important part of our families, and during the holidays, they also want to participate in all the activities. A great way to include them is by giving them a gift they will enjoy.
They might not know what’s going on, but I’m sure they will love to see that being a good boy or girl has benefits. That’s why I picked 5 DIY Christmas gift ideas for dogs!

DIY Christmas Gift Ideas For Dogs
In this list, you will find very easy (and some others not so much) crafts that you can recreate for your pet.
The part I love the most about these DIYs, is the fact that they will be made with love, and that’s one of the things that our furry babies want the most.
They won’t care if they don’t look like the ones in the pictures. So if you aren’t sure about making one of these DIYs, I would say just ahead and try! Let’s get out of our comfort zones during the holidays and let’s try something new.Are you looking for some Christmas gift ideas for dogs? I have what you are looking for! Check out these 5 DIY options I'm sure you and your pet will love. Click To Tweet
1. Dog Biscuits In A Jar
The idea comes from Not From The High Street. It was available for purchase, but not anymore. It doesn’t matter though, because you can easily recreate it yourself.
There you go! You will have a simple, but very cute way to keep your pup’s treats.
That’s why I love this idea so much. I would normally leave Coco’s treats in the original box, but it looks way better and organized in a jar.
This will definitely be my Christmas present for him this year. He’s going to love more the treats rather than the jar, obviously, but it will be a gift for both of us.
2. Paw Print Salt Dough Ornaments
It’s super easy to make and you don’t need many supplies to make it work. I’m sure you will find most of them in your house. Like salt, flour, and glitter.
Not only that. A simple DIY can turn into a fun activity for the whole family. How exciting is that?
3. Dog Teepee Bed
How cute is this teepee bed for your fur baby? minicampLT offers many options of these beds. Not only for your pets but also for your kids!
I just love the idea of everyone getting one of these. The teepees are adorable!
You can buy these teepees from their Etsy shop if you aren’t too crafty, but if you loved the idea you can follow this tutorial.
It’s not as difficult as it seems! Definitely one of the most fun DIY Christmas gift ideas for dogs.
4. Dog Scarf
If knitting is your thing then this for sure should be your next project. If you don’t know how to knit and you still want your pup to feel warm this winter, you can follow this tutorial to learn the basics.
This dog scarf is the perfect item to make your dog look festive without being too uncomfortable.
Click here to follow the tutorial. This cute scarf will keep your pup warm. Not only that, he or she will look adorable with it. I mean… just look at that cutie in the picture.
This can be one of the most difficult DIY Christmas gift ideas for dogs from this list, but if you are up to a challenge this is a good one! I have tried knitting before, it can be a confusing at first, but I swear it just takes practice.
5. Bunny Dog Toy
Even though I know the toy wouldn’t survive long, I would still make the effort. Sadly, he destroys any toy we give him.
Now, this gift involves a little more of work than the other DIYs, but seeing your pup happily playing with its new toy will be worth it. At least that’s how I feel every time I give Coco a new toy.
So, what do you think? Which one of these DIYs is your favorite? Do you usually give your pet a Christmas gift? Let me know in the comments! For more Christmas content, click here.
