Holiday shopping can be stressful. Fortunately, you can nix the in-store madness by doing all your shopping on one great site: PETACatalog.com. The best part is that your purchase will directly support PETA’s vital work—making it a happy holiday for animals in need, too!

The PETA Catalog has something for everyone. Scroll down to see our suggestions:

For the Dog Mom or Dad

The PETA Catalog is chock-full of gifts that are sure to warm the heart of any canine guardian. Help your friends or family members celebrate their adopted furry friend with a stocking featuring the message “Adopted: It’s a Wonderful Life.” Or give a gift that their companion would love: a dog treat wreath that doubles as a flying ring toy.

For the Cat Lady (or Lad)

We all know one. Give the cat lovers in your life adorable handmade PETA Bunny and Heart Catnip Toys—100 percent vegan and 100 percent fun. And if they like jewelry, help them celebrate the love that they have for their companion(s) with this “Adopt Kitty” Necklace.

For the Chef

Choose from a selection of vegan cookbooks, including Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking, Veganize It!, and Crossroads. Each one is packed with delicious vegan recipes.

For the Person Who Shares Your Compassion for Animals

A PETA Gift Membership is the perfect choice for the person in your life who wants to help change the world for animals. Your friend or family member will receive a one-year subscription to PETA Global magazine, an exclusive calendar, a special 10% member discount on items sold through our PETA Catalog, and so much more.

For the Person Who’s Impossible to Shop For

Everyone needs a calendar! Why not give someone a 2018 PETA Rescued! Calendar filled with beautiful portraits of animals, along with the heartwarming story of each featured animal’s rescue.


Don’t forget a card. Send wishes of peace and joy for all, and remind your loved ones to be kind to animals at the same time.

These charming holiday cards will surely put a smile on that special someone’s face—and compassion in his or her heart.

BONUS: For the One Person Who Says, ‘I Don’t Need Anything’

We all have at least one friend or family member who, every year, selflessly declares, “Don’t waste your money—I don’t need anything.” If you want to do something special for this person—while still obeying his or her wishes—check out PETA Presents, where you can purchase virtual gifts that help protect animals. Choose from options like a bale of straw for a “backyard dog,” a durable dog toy for a lonely pup, and supplies that will help PETA investigators expose animal abuse.
