Like all animal-loving households, our pets are a member of our family. And that means, they get gifts just like every other member of our family, during certain times of the year. I’m sure you’re aware Christmas is still a few months away, but with the economy doing what the economy does, and lots of humans and and animals to buy for, we look for tricks to get a jump on our holiday shopping.

One way we do that is through GiftSoc – because it’s a way that you can add human and animal gift lists to your pack’s holiday list. This is a particularly handy tool if you have family members that live out of town, which makes shopping very hard.

So, how does it work? Well, we’re glad you asked! The process is simple:


  1. Create an account and invite your family members
  2. Add the first name of your dependents (that could be your kids, cats, dogs, or spouse)
  3. Create an event (or RSVP to a current event that another member created)
  4. Send out invitations to the event
  5. Search for an item
  6. Add item you want to your sock by clicking the quantity needed and the size, cost, or color.

Now, to add items to another family member’s sock, you simply change accounts. If your dog is absolutely salivating over that Ruffwear Palisades pack or the new Kyjen Hide-A-Squirrel toy, just add them in. You can specify color, size, pricing and more. This is a program that makes shopping a breeze!

For families who live away from one another and may not be up to date on all the latest fads, this is a godsend. You'll be able to reserve the item immediately or you can log back in and click that it’s been purchased. It’s all tidy and convenient and everyone knows what they need to and don’t need to purchase.

The best part is that it’s totally free, safe to use, secured, and you can add anything you want - whether it’s online or a custom made gift (through their custom add).

We know you’ll love this gift giving tool and the ability to add items that your family and pets really want and need! It’s one more tool in your gift-giving arsenal.
