Holiday Gift: DIY Dog Treat Canister

Holiday Gift: DIY Dog Treat Canister

This post is sponsored post by Lunchbox on behalf of Big Heart Pet Brands®. Thanks for supporting our site partners by reading and sharing our posts!

It’s about that time to start shopping for the holidays.  I’ve been gathering gift ideas for family members including the Cuatro Canine Crew, because furry friends need love too! I enjoy thinking of creative ways to treat the pups since it’s something you don’t that often. I find gift ideas for dogs so incredibly cute. They always give me the giggles.

Today, I want to share a quick and simple way to share some holiday cheer with your favorite pooches. All you need is a canister, your dogs’ favorite treats, some ribbon, and a bow. Easy right?



Milk-Bone, Pup-Peroni, and Milo’s Kitchen dog treats
BHG Square Flip-Tite Storage Container
Ribbon & Curly Bow


At Walmart, I grabbed a box of Milk-Bone medium-sized biscuits, oven roasted chicken Pup-Peroni, and Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky. I was surprised to find the Milo’s Kitchen treats since they usually sell out at my local store. Must be some good stuff! I mean, if I were a dainty little poodle princess, I’d eat them. Jerky’s my jam.



I started filling the canister with the Milk-Bone biscuits. I layered a few at the bottom and slipped some of the Milo’s Kitchen and Pup-Peroni treats around the perimeter of the canister. I then, put a few of the Milk-Bone treats in between to make a unique pattern. In the middle of the canister is where I placed the remaining Pup-Peroni and Milo’s Kitchen treats, then I filled the gaps in with the Milk-Bone treats.


I completed this project by attaching some grosgrain holiday ribbon and a curly bow for a classy and festive look. I hope you’ve enjoyed this simple DIY gifting idea for your furry friends. For more howliday gift ideas, visit the TREAT THE PUPS holiday hub on Walmart.com, where you can grab some fun printables to create with!

Happy Howlidays!

    This is such an awesome gift idea! My family members have fur babies and I get tired of getting them the same old toys or sweaters for the holidays! This treat canister would be great! Thank you for sharing!

    That is such a wonderful gift idea for dog owners. I love that it looks a lot more expensive than it actually is.

    Such a cute Idea. I think I will be doing this for Christmas. We have 6 dogs in the family. This would be much more affordable.
