Of course, Fido needs some love under the tree too. These cotton rope leashes are hand-dyed and whipped with wax hemp string (all locally sourced materials) by Erin Schmitt of Portland, Oregon-based Grey Paw Design. Available in 25 colors, each leash is made with the traditional eye splice loop commonly used by sailors.
Your pup will look good and feel good too: A portion of Grey Paw's sales supports pet relief organizations. Leashes from $35 -$42 each.
