If your prince or princess has some sleepovers on their social calendar, make your child the center of attention with these sleeping bags from Orvis ($69). Though they are not the typical camping beds the company usually sells, these sacks are sure to get your lil one excited about a night away from home. Each set features a three-dimensional animal on the bag, as well as a matching stuffed animal that can double as a pillow. The bags are washable, which means your tot will get good use out of them.
Never force a pet to spend time outside in the winter. Just because a pet has a fur coat, does not mean that their bodies or hair can handle the cold. Many pets love the winter and have thick appropriate coats, but little, short-haired dogs or cats can get frostbitten quickly. Keep the fur between their toe pads clipped down to prevent mini snowballs or icicles from forming between their little toes and consider coating their dry paw patches with a paw de-icer spray or balm. Make sure to take extra care to toast up a pet after outdoor adventures in the freezing weather – keep a pan or washcloth ready with warm water to rinse paws and plenty of towels for drying and cleaning off, too!
Give pets a leg up with this aptly-designed stool. Just as functional as more traditional step designs, it makes a nice addition to any animal lover's room and could even serve as a small side table. Fear not, all non-pet owners out there, the nonskid strips and solid pine steps are sturdy enough to give you a boost around the house as well. Orvis' Lab Step Stool comes in either a black ash or cinnamon finish for $249.
