Have you thought about what Christmas gifts for dogs you will offer this year through your dog bakery business?
Based on a survey of pet owners, dog treats and toys were at the top of the gift list and the gift givers indicated they would be willing to spend from $20.00 to $50.00.
Those of you who make dog treats might want to consider offering dog gifts baskets or specifically a dog treat gift basket filled with assorted tasty treats for your customers to give as holiday gifts either to their own dog or to family and friends with dogs.
It may or may not come as a surprise that people volunteered that they were more inclined to give pet gifts rather than to family, friends, or….a boss. And, they considered giving out gifts for pets because they saw the suggestion in an advertisement.
Dog Christmas gifts for the dog’s best friend are also a popular choice. Consider this in your advertising! You may want to make up some pet gift baskets that have a feminine theme and some with a masculine theme.
A interesting twist on the gift basket is to use the foil bone-shaped cake pans that come with lids.
These can be packed with treats and/or other items as well. As an added bonus, the foil pan can be used to bake a dog cake so they are essentially getting two gifts in one!
One last interesting tidbit: The surveyed pet owners preferred to make up their own stockings for their pets rather than to buy the pre-filled ones. For those of you who exhibit at Farmer’s Markets, think about offering smaller healthy dog treats or other small items as a Christmas stocking package for dog lovers to have unique stocking fillers that the large chains like Petco and PetSmart will never carry!
