Holiday Dog Treat Recipes and Dog Gift Baskets For Our Four-Legged Friends

comments 0

Dogs just seem to add even more holiday happiness to the holiday season, and we couldn’t imagine a Christmas without Baxter or Fido “helping us” open our gifts under the tree. Of course, we need to use common sense and keep our dogs away from holiday “n-o’s” like tinsel, poinsettias, tree water, chocolates, and any small gifts and objects they can choke on. That’s why whipping up dog-approved treats and wrapping them up for your pooch, or a friend or family member’s dog, is a fun way to show that special dog in your life some holiday love, too! Oh, and gifting Holiday Dog Gift Baskets helps you do just that without taking the time to bake your own treats, and many of our holiday dog gift baskets include people-approved gifts, too.

Frozen Peanut Butter Yogurt Treats, from

  • 1 large thirty-two ounce container of plain vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • Cupcake cups and cupcake papers

Place the peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave it until it is melted. Add the yogurt to the peanut butter, and mix. Pour the combined mixture into the cupcake papers, and freeze until solid. Gift to Fido, and enjoy!

Dog Gift Baskets

Canine Cookies, from Starisles Bearded Collies

Blend the following, in a bowl:

  • 1 cup of hot water or hot broth
  • 1 envelope of dry milk
  • 2 teaspoons of bouillon

Then add ¾ cup oil, 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and 5 cups of whole wheat flour to the bouillon mixture. Stir it all to form a very tough dough blend. Roll the dough out, and use holiday-themed cookie cutters to cut the dough into shapes. Cover a cookie sheet with foil, and place the holiday-themed cookie shapes onto it. Bake at 300 degrees F for 40 minutes. Turn the cookies over after 20 minutes. Place the cookies in a cute gift bag for Baxter, and help him open it on Christmas morning!

Our Holiday Dog Gift Baskets, like our Holiday Pizza Pals Dog and Owner Gift, include scrumptious morsels for the dogs in our lives, and the people, too! We’ve heard from our loyal customers how unique they are for gifting to families with dogs – the Christmas gift basket is large enough to gift to the entire family, and there’s healthy treats in there for their dog, too. It’s thoughtfulness, in the form of a gift basket 😉

Wine and Chocolate Gift Baskets Create Delicious Pairings Ideas

We had the pleasure recently of adding quite a bit more Wine and Chocolate Gift Baskets to our wine gift baskets collection, and we’re pleased to announce that we’re now able to ship wine directly to your door, opening up a whole new window of wine gift basket options! Speaking of options – wine and cheese tends to be the go-to wine pairing, but chocolate has taken on a decidedly gourmet form over the last few years. Wine and chocolate pairings are more popular than ever, and we’re here to share some delicious wine and chocolate coupling ideas with you!

Wine and Milk Chocolate Pairings

It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love the smooth taste of milk chocolate – it just seems to conjure up happiness! Choose a few of your favorite milk chocolate candy bars, and stick with wines like a Pinot Noir, a Reisling, dessert wines, or even a sparkling wine. These are all lighter wines that will accent, but not overpower, the chocolate.

Wine and Dark Chocolate Pairings

We’ve been hearing so much about the health benefits of dark chocolate, and when you pair them with the reported benefits of red wine, well, we’ve got a wine coupling that’s good for us, too (in moderation, of course)! Dark chocolate has a very strong flavor, so you need a full-bodied wine to go with it. Go for a Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, or a Pinot Noir.

Wine and White Chocolate Pairings

Take a bite into a white chocolate bar…mmm. Doesn’t it just seem to have a buttery flavor? Think “fun” when you’re choosing a wine to pair it with – namely, a sweet or dessert wine. A Sherry or a Moscato wine is fabulous for it. Want to walk on the wild side? Pair it with its alter ego – a Zinfandel. The coupling of these two tend to balance each other’s “rough edges” out.

Move over wine and cheese – wine and chocolate pairings are a fun, gourmet alternative to traditional wine couplings. Many of our Wine Gift Baskets feature gourmet chocolates, so the gift recipient will be all ready to enjoy wine and chocolate pairings – courtesy of your thoughtfulness!
