Do you get your pet a present for Valentine's Day?

For most people, pets are considered a part of the family. So much so, people include them in their family photos, holiday cards, vacations, and even have birthday parties for them.

How important is your pet to you? Enough to purchase them a Valentine's Day present?

Don't get me wrong, I love pets but a Valentine's gift? I understand Christmas but this seems a bit much.

According to, it's not a crazy idea.

"Americans plan to shower their pooches and feline friends with goodies on Feb. 14."

"A number of retailers have jumped on board with Valentine’s Day-themed pet merch."

This could actually be a good idea for at least one reason. People who don't have a significant other to spend the day with now have another option.

Will you be getting your pet something this year?
