Millennials are getting back into the spending mood, especially for the holidays, and they’re planning to spoil their pets a little extra this year.

It’s the holiday season, which means we’re buying gifts for people. Or rather, we’re buying gifts for our pets. Yeah, they say that “millennials” are expected to spend a lot of gifts for their pets this year.

I don’t know how they come up with these figures. I wish I did, because that sounds like it would be an interesting job. Still though, they say that millennials are going to spend big on their pets for the holidays. Like, more than double the amount the “average” consumer will spend on their own pets. Specifically, the average millennial will drop about $183 on things for their furry friends. On average, the rest of the shopping group will only drop about $67.

There’s a reason behind the logic. It seems that more and more young people are beginning to “humanize” their pets. In doing that, pets are starting to be treated as more than just a pet – they’re getting fancier foods, more comfortable beds, and more expensive toys. We’re literally treating our pets like actual human members of the family. I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with that, but I also don’t think a dog toy should cost 20 bucks, but that’s my opinion. Check out a little more info over here. Are you spending a lot on your pets this year?
