For pet parents, furry friends are members of the family, and including them in holiday celebrations is a given. One fun and easy way to show your pet some love on the Christmas tree is to honor them with a personalized pet ornament, of which there are many to choose from on the small-seller page, Etsy.

We've rounded up a list of some of our favorite personalized pet ornaments, and while many of the photos feature dogs, please remember that any type of pet can be featured on yours!
