Every year, the Christmas season takes the age-old saying “the more, the merrier” to new heights. This may not apply to jam-packed shopping centers where everyone’s on the quest for the best gifts and noche buena items, but it does ring true to the irreplaceable company of get-togethers and shared celebrations of gratitude that make Christmas one of the most awaited holidays of the year. 

You can’t talk about togetherness this Christmas without appreciating the priceless companionship of pets. They, too, deserve to have as much fun as our friends and loved ones do at holiday gatherings. We put Santa hats and reindeer antlers on them for family portraits (and potential Instagram stardom), but did you know that they can also be inspiration for Christmas presents? 

Nobody understands the life of a pet better than those who take care of one. We may have our own unique preferences that constitute the ideal Christmas gift, but for fur parents and animal lovers, nothing beats the simple joy of unwrapping tokens of appreciation for their beloved fur babies.

Why they’ll love it: Planners are staples for New Year’s preparations, especially for anyone with a knack for jotting down their daily agenda down to the tiniest details. You can easily earn your own planner every year after spending months gathering enough coffee shop stickers, but these hardbound organizers add the personal touch of your pets’ hand-drawn portraits on their covers. With one of these journals on hand, you can carry your pets’ warm smiles everywhere you go while staying motivated to accomplish every task on your to-do lists. 


Bonus: Random Smiles’ planners and journals come with freebies that include writing devices to fill the notebooks up. The shop participated at this year’s MeowCon Cat Show and Convention in Pasig City, where they drew live portraits of guests’ pet cats. Their pet drawings also decorate mugs and tote bags.
