There’s one family member on your Christmas shopping list who will love whatever gift they get. Shopping for pets for the holidays is especially easy in Ahwatukee Foothills.

Bone Appetit Bakery will be closing its doors for good on Dec. 30, but this holiday season they’ll still have their famous homemade treats available for purchase.

The bakery will once again be making a Fido’s Feast. The frozen meal contains roasted turkey, mashed sweet potatoes and molasses and brown rice with bacon. It allows pets to enjoy a nice meal with their owners, without getting anything they shouldn’t be eating.

Bone Appetit will also have some baked Christmas treats available for pets and boutique items for up to 75 percent off.

Foothills Pet Resort is having a sale on all treats, including Buddy Biscuits and Zukes, and will be doing free teeth brushing with all grooming appointments in December.

Authentic NFL-licensed jerseys for dogs appear to be the hot item this year. Foothills Pet Resort recently began carrying the jerseys and say they’ve sold more jerseys for dogs in the past three months than all their retail combined in the last three years.

Wiggles and Wags Pet Resort says antlers for dogs seem to be flying off their shelves this year.

Malinda’s Pampered Pets stocks their shelves every year with Christmas-themed dog toys and outfits. Malinda Malone, owner of the Ahwatukee shop, also suggests new collars, leashes and dog bowls. Malinda’s Pampered Pets and Wiggles and Wags Pet Resort in Tempe have traditionally hosted pictures with Santa for pets.

Wiggles and Wags photos with Santa will take place Saturday Dec. 7, 14 and 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Customers can bring in their pets for photos with Santa or with a different holiday background.
