Stocking Stuffer

The 5 Best Holiday Stocking Stuffers for Small Dogs Under $20


Holiday stocking stuffers for under $20? Is this too good to be true? Filling up your dog's stocking so there are endless toys during the holidays is one of the best ways to celebrate your four-legged friend. He gives you unconditional love all year and helps you live in the moment so your dog is of course at the top of the holiday gift list!

Our staff decided that gifts under $20 allow pet lovers to still save and give back to an animal organization on behalf of their pet! We focused on gifts for small dogs for this guide as there are so many big dog toys and chews!

These five will all fit inside a large holiday stocking!

1. Fleece Pet Blanket/Throw with Paw Print Design

Dog households can never have enough blankets! Who has ever heard of a small dog that didn't have a few of their own for cuddling? This blanket is ultra soft and warm.


This stylish blanket is available for $7.49 on Amazon - a great deal for little munchkins!

2. Christmas Dog Bandana 

Stocking Stuffer Etsy has a lot of wonderful handmade options for stocking stuffers for your best friends! They come in smaller sizes like XS for little necks.

This bandana from RuffHippie is available for $11.00. There are others to choose from and literally thousands of gifts from Etsy artists for dogs and dog moms!

3. ZippyPaws Holiday Squeakie Pad Reindeer Squeaky No Stuffing Plush Dog Toy

Does the stuffing get torn out in minutes by your dog? That's not the least of your worries, either because then the toy is a choking hazard before the holiday ends and gets thrown out? Your small four-legged friend can now enjoy this toy with the squeaker without anyone worrying whether it's safe or not!


This "no mess" toy is available for $6.70 and is our staff's fave stocking stuffer for a great value!

4. Chuckit! Indoor Roller Dog Toy for Small Dogs 

These durable fetch toys are made with small dogs in mind. It's perfect for indoor fetch and won't destroy the house.

This can also be used with the Chuckit! launcher and is available for $5.73 on Amazon.

5. Kuoser Dog Coats Dog Jackets

A dog stocking wouldn't be complete without a jacket for your best friend. These are designed for cold weather and waterproof. This jacket is made for small and large dogs but it was too cute not to add here for smaller breeds. It comes in XS and S sizes.


The coats are available right now for $19.99.

Another stocking stuffer not on the list? Handmade ID tags are also a great gift for your dog and dog's parents. This is another stocking stuffer that can be found on Etsy.

The holiday season is stressful for pet owners. There are a lot of gift guides with items that we also have on our list including rope toys, dog collars, dog beds, a dog chew, Kongs, dog food, bow ties, water bowls and these are wonderful Christmas gifts, but in our experience, they're a little expensive when it comes to filling up that stocking!

We hope this short list of less expensive gifts for your dog's stocking won't break the bank. Even though DIY gifts are also a great option for dog lovers, so few of us have the time! We hope your dog enjoys these gifts on Christmas morning. If it's Fido's first holiday with you, we hope you make it extra special.
