From hats to jumpers, fewer things are cuter than a dog in a Christmas outfit. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of the cutest Christmas dog outfits around—from reindeer antlers to pyjamas to full-on Santa suits—to bring you a hearty dose of cheer and plenty of photo ops this holiday season.
Whether you’re taking your dog to an ugly jumper party, or simply taking family photos in front of the tree (or around a snowman, if you’re lucky), there’s a Christmas dog outfit here to suit your pooch.
Note: don’t forget to take your dog’s measurements before you shop, and if they’re not into wearing clothes check out our list of festive collars.
A Christmas outfit most of us can get behind? A doggy Christmas sweater. This soft acrylic sweater is great for parties and chilly outings where dog clothing is required.
This darling, hand-knit snood (an ornamental scarf or hood) is made for smaller breeds and comes in a variety of sizes. Can be worn with your pet’s collar (your pet’s pride is another issue altogether).
There are lines in the Christmas movie canon you just don’t forget; “Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal,” is one of them. Thankfully (and perhaps, ingeniously), the expression is now immortalised on this festive dog jumper for you and your “filthy animal” to relive over and over.
Sometimes, a simple accessory or two is all that’s needed to set the holiday mood (and often, such accessories are easier for your dog to wear than a traditional outfit). This colourful reindeer headband and coordinated scarf, available in size small and large, look great in photos and are great for pets with an aversion to costumes and clothing.
This red flannel pyjama set works as both a pair of cosy pjs great for Christmas photos, or as a jumpsuit for brisk winter walks after the holiday season has passed.
Move over Diane Von Furstenberg, there’s a new dog dress in town! This festive knit holiday dog dress recalls the classic DVF wrap dress, only for dogs, with a hood, with a pom-pom. Available in sizes extra small to large.
Kick it up a notch with this joyful snowman collar, featuring a gorgeous red and teal bow tie, perfect for adding a little bit of flair when it’s time for the Christmas party or holiday photo shoot.
A small hidden battery pack illuminates the LED twinkle lights on this pet-safe holiday sweatshirt. It’ll keep your dog warm and visible on a crisp Christmas Eve walk!

11. Elf Dog Costume
Is green really more your dog’s colour? This adorable elf outfit, available in sizes to fit most small and medium dogs, is the perfect costume to match their personality.
