The holiday season is officially here! I could not be more excited — it’s my favorite time of the year, and I look forward to having a break from work and spending quality time with Husband and Zoey. The tree is up, and I’ve started my gift shopping, so I feel like I am checking things off my holiday “to do” list already.
One of those holiday to-dos is gifts for Zoey, of course! I headed to Target to stock up on all her favorites for the holidays: Purina Beggin’® Strips, Purina Beneful Chopped Blends™ and Prepared Meals™, Beneful Healthy Smile® Dental Twists, Purina Busy® Bones, Purina Moist & Meaty® (perfect for taking on road trips with her), and Purina Beyond® Meal Enhancements. I also grabbed a bag of Purina Beyond® Natural Dry Dog Food to take with us on our Georgia trip for the holidays. It’s the perfect time to stock up because starting the week of December 4, 2016, you can save $10 off a $40 purchase of ANY Purina products when you text PETS to 827438.
How easy is that? (Note: Data and messaging fees may apply and vary based on individual mobile carrier. Not all mobile carriers and plans may support the text coupon offer system.) You can even text and claim this offer while you’re in the store, and that’s a pretty big savings! If you have a dog or cat, you can grab all of their favorites for less. Here’s my cart full of Purina goodies:
I love going to Target during the holiday season because there’s always a one-of-a-kind something that I just have to have. It’s always a bit of an adventure, ya know? During this visit, I couldn’t pass up the holiday dog outfits. I narrowed it down to an adorable knit trapper hat and a Santa beard and hat — and then I bought both. Oops? The trapper hat was tolerated a little better than the Santa hat and beard, so the Santa hat ended up decorating our flamingo statue instead.
I piled everything up under the tree so that she could check out the goods. Zoey is definitely looking forward to working her way through those Busy® Bones this season, and I will admit, I already opened her favorite — the Beggin’® Stripes — as a reward for her sitting for a photoshoot involving two silly hats.
To add to our holiday cheer, I created an advent calendar of sorts for Zoey; for each of the “12 Days of Christmas,” she gets to open a little present. I designed some cute printable tags to use, and you can download and print them by clicking here!
To create your own 12 Days of Pet Gifts, you’ll need the following items:
- at least 12 of your pet’s favorite Purina items from Target
- two coordinating wrapping paper rolls (the ones below are also from my Target trip!)
- clear tape
- ribbon or other decorative wrapping items
- the printable gift tags
Start by wrapping each item, varying the types of paper and ribbon.
Cut out each of the 12 tags. Then, add a “12 Days of Pet Gifts” tag to each wrapped gift.
Pile them up under the tree, and help your pet open one each day, starting on December 14 and ending on Christmas. (Although, the “real” 12 Days of Christmas are December 25 through January 5, so you can celebrate that way too!)
A word to the wise: don’t leave the gifts under the tree when you’re not watching your pet. Some pets — I’m sure not your angel, but some pets — ahem — might get into a bit of trouble if a bunch of yummy Purina treats were left in a reachable location. Just sayin’.
If you’re ready to start checking things off your holiday list too, head over to Target, and pick up some of your pet’s favorite Purina items! (And maybe an adorable trapper hat if your pet will let you?) Don’t forget to text PETS to 827438 and save $10 on $40 worth of Purina products. I hope that you and your pets have a wonderful holiday season!
