Whether you’re buying yourself a Valentine’s Day gift from your pet, or searching for a purrfect present for your pet-obsessed partner, our 2021 list has the dog- and/or cat-lover in your life covered!
Gifts for Dog Lovers

A romantic glass of wine on Valentine’s Day is practically a requirement. Incorporate your precious pup by toasting with breed-specific wine glasses. In the Company of Dogs offers sets of 4 stemless wine glasses featuring 45 different dog breeds. We’ll drink to that!
Gifts for Cat Lovers
You don’t have to look very hard to find Valentine’s gifts for pet lovers. But if cat owners are truly as picky as their feline companions, finding the right item might not be as easy as it sounds. Whether your cat-loving Valentine loves jewelry, clothes, or spending their time in the kitchen, we’re sure you’ll be able to find the right gift among these options:
Chocolate Cat Candy Bar – $17
Why should Easter bunnies have all the fun? This chocolate cat candy bar from the Amy ChocolateDogPound store on Etsy is sure to satisfy the sweet tooth of any cat-lover this Valentine’s Day. Don’t settle for a boring box of chocolates when you can surprise your Valentine with this sweet (literally!) kitty.

Flowers may seem a predictable gift to send on February 14, but these aren’t just any flowers. This Fabulous Feline arrangement from 1-800-Flowers is shaped like a kitty and is sure to impress the cat-lover in your life.
Cat Slippers – $64
What’s even better than a romantic dinner out on Valentine’s Day? A cozy night in! These cat slippers from L.L. Bean are as cute as they are comfy, and are the perfect choice when cuddling up on the couch with your Valentine–be they human or feline.
Custom Fancy Cat Painting – $49.95
If you can’t afford diamonds for your Valentine, give her the next best thing: a personalized portrait of her cat dripping in gems. Iconic Paw offers Classy Lady Custom Pet Canvas paintings, featuring your favorite feline dressed like Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Valentine’s Day Pet Adoption
Cupid’s arrow is not always reliable. Sometimes you have to go out there and find your Valentine for yourself! Valentine’s Day can be a great time to adopt the new love of your life: a rescue dog or cat. Resources like Petfinder can help you find rescue animals in your area. Breed-specific rescues can also help if you have a particular breed of dog or cat in mind. Be sure to see if local shelters are running any adoption specials for Valentine’s Day.
Sending lots of love to you and your pets! Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Prudent Pet!
