Christmas Card Ideas With Pets: Pet Photo Ideas

If you’ll be personalizing your Christmas cards online, adding a photo is easy and can add a ton of personal flavor, fun, and meaning to your pet Christmas cards. There are a variety of fun ways to capture festive photos of your pets, but just make sure not to hurt your pets or upset them while capturing the photo.

For instance, never wrap Christmas lights around your pet. Some Christmas lights have led in them which can rub off while handling them. Beyond possibly poisnoning your pet, wrapping Christmas lights around it will also leave he or she tangled and uncomfortable. There are more things to avoid around the holidays, including tinsel (which can be deadly to cats if swallowed) and holly (which is poisonous to cats and dogs). Find more holiday pet safety tips on ASPCA.com.

Try doing some of these more natural holiday pet photo ideas that wont agitate or hurt your pet:

  • Cats love wrapping paper. Try laying some colorful wrapping paper on the ground. Your cat will likely gravitate towards it right away. Snap a photo while they are playing with it or lying on it.
  • Snap a few photos of your dog playing in the snow.
  • Include your dog or cat in a family photo in front of a festive backdrop, such as your Christmas tree.
  • If your pet doesn’t mind wearing costumes, try dressing them up for the holiday photo.
  • Give your cat a festive, and safe, prop to play with, such as large bells to bat around. Snap a photo as they play.
  • Try incorporating some of these fun Christmas photo ideas into your holiday cards with pets.
  • There are some pet stores where you can by special season treats for your pets, such as dog or cat Christmas cookies. You can also make them yourself — check out Healthy Holiday Treats For Your Dogs & Cats. After you have festive treats for your pets, put some on a plate and give them to your pets. Snap a photo of your pet next to their treats.
