95 Percent of Pet Owners Buy Christmas Gifts for Pets, Survey Finds

November 24, 2015

According to a survey conducted by Rover.com, 95 percent of pet owners have bought a Christmas gift for their pet.

Christmas is the most popular holiday for buying presents for pets, ahead of their birthdays and Valentine’s Day.

“Our pets love us unconditionally, so it’s no surprise many pet parents treat their dogs like another member of the family,” said Brandie Gonzales of Rover.com.

The gifts range from holiday items like Christmas trees to extravagant presents usually reserved for humans. The price of the gifts averaged about $36, but five percent of respondents said they’d bought something that cost over $100.
