    1. Collapsible travel dog bowls to take along on long road trips or camping trips. They barely take up any space, they're easy to clean, and you can even attach it to a leash or a backpack.

    2. A lightning bolt-shaped toy from Wild One that's expertly designed with two "elbows" so your dog can hold onto one end with their paws and chomp down on the other end. It's made with 100% natural rubber, has a hollow center (perfect for hiding treats!) and is nearly indestructible.

    3. An adjustable lizard leash with adorable wings so you can let your reptile explore outside without getting lost.

    4. A bird teaser toy with real feathers if your cat is spending way too much time napping and hiding. This budget-friendly toy will help ensure your cat will get some quality playtime in thanks to the built-in pockets of catnip.

    5. A ball launcher that tosses a ball farther, meaning you'll have more time to rest your arm between throws. Bonus: you'll never have to actually ~touch~ the slobbery ball.

    6. A pack of all-natural cheese dog treats your dog will love so much, you might as well buy a few packs now to satiate their cravings.

    7. A purring cat toy especially great for any anxious kitties. It has a built-in purring mechanism so your cat will feel like they're actually snuggling up with another cat.

    8. A packet of plant-based compostable dog wipes to always keep on hand so you don't have to give your dog a full bath every time they get a little bit dirty. They're great for cleaning up muddy paws, crusty faces, or dirty bums.

    9. A tube of wrinkle balm (yes, wrinkle balm!) you'll apply in your dog's skin folds to prevent infection and annoying irritation. Shar-Pei everywhere are rejoicing.

    10. A large plush toy shaped like a duck about to become your dog's favorite thing in the world (besides you, of course). They'll fall in love with the squeaker, how huggable it is, and how it stays together even through endless hours of rough play with sharp chompers.

    11. A cat toy tower with spinning balls that will keep your cat occupied all day. Even the most disinterested of cats will find joy thanks to this!

    12. A slow feeder dog bowl designed to prevent your dog from scarfing down their food in one minute flat and ending up with an upset tummy. This bowl can also help reduce bloating and vomiting that lots of fast-eating pups can often struggle with.

    13. This pet-grooming glove with 255 silicone grooming tips that essentially massage your dog as you run the glove over their body to pick up loose hair. Your pup will seriously love how good it feels, making grooming time so much more enjoyable for them and you.

    14. Or this pet grooming brush that works as a great comb in the bath and a massaging comb at the same time. Cats especially love the super-soft silicone material and will be practically begging you to give them a brushing session after you use this for the first time.

    15. A pack of leakproof poop bags in case you've been burned one too many times when using a flimsy plastic bag to pick up your dog's poop. You'll love how reliable and sturdy these are — they make a very unglamorous daily chore a little less miserable.

    16. A self-groomer cat toy that you can mount on a corner or just keep on the ground for your cat to scratch up on. It collects loose hair and has a compartment for catnip to entice them to use the groomer.

    17. A pack of chicken-flavored Pill Pocket dog treats with the ability to actually mask the smell of any pill you put inside so you can administer medicine to your dog in the most painless way. Don't you love how easy it is to trick your pup?!

    18. A "Did you feed the dog?" sign to finally give yourself an answer to the age-old question you ask yourself twice a day. Now you never have to worry about whether you're over- (or under-!) feeding her.

    19. A pack of matatabi chew sticks if your cat is constantly scratching up furniture and you want to give them an outlet for all that energy. Matatabi is a plant native to Japan and is actually an alternative to catnip, so if your cat is stubborn and shows no interest in catnip, this might finally be the way to distract your feline from clawing away at every surface of the house.

    20. A bird bath so your small to medium birdie can splash around all the livelong day. It can lock onto the sides of their cage but is also easily removable for cleanup days.

    21. A tub of dog paw wax, which acts as a protective layer for your dog's paws so things like snow, ice, and hot pavement won't irritate them. Just apply it on their paws before they head outside, and they'll be prancing along pain-free!

    22. An interactive cat toy if your cat has a box full of toys they have absolutely no interest in. Even though this is basically just a spring steel wire with rolled cardboard on the end, they are bound to have a blast pouncing on it.

    23. A highly reflective collar so you can go on your nightly walks and rest assured that you'll be visible. Reviewers say they love how vibrant the colors are even during the day!

    24. A nail trimmer if grooming your dog's nails always results in a temper tantrum. This has a safety guard to prevent overcutting so you won't accidentally hurt your furry friend.

    25. A cat scratcher board to keep your cat occupied so they can finally stop clawing at your poor couch and coffee table.

    26. A packet of ear wipes designed to get all the gunk that builds up in your dog's ears, which will help prevent them from getting infected. After using this consistently, you'll notice they won't be pawing at their ears as much!

    27. A set of can covers if your pet only eats, say, half of what's in the can and you end up throwing out the rest. Thanks to these covers, you can serve them the exact serving you know they'll eat, and then save the rest for the next feeding time!

    28. An aquarium fish tank glass scraper that scrubs off all that built-up algae in between tank cleanings. It has a magnetic handle that you operate from outside the tank, so your hand stays dry and clean.

    29. A pack of Nature's Miracle litter box scrubbing wipes that effectively gets off all that caked-on debris and eliminates any lingering odor. Cleaning your cat's litter box is never pleasant, but these wipes make the experience a little less grody.

    30. And a cat litter scoop with an extra-large bowl design so you get out as many turds as possible with each scoop. The oversized holes allow litter to sift out while keeping all that gross stuff in the scoop so you can throw it out easily.

    31. A cat toy tower with spinning balls that will keep your cat occupied all day. Even the most disinterested of cats will find joy thanks to this!
