1. A paw cleaner to prevent floors from being covered in muddy footprints when the dog comes inside. All they have to do is add water, and the gentle silicone bristles remove caked-on dirt and mud.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I have four dogs in NYC. I have to wash their feet after every walk because the streets are so filthy. It would take me about 10 to 15 minutes to clean their paws with a spray bottle and towel. Now it takes about five minutes. And the towel doesn’t end up filthy. The dirt gets caught in the cup. Plus the dogs seem to like it. The silicone bristles must feel good. A huge thumbs-up!" —Sandra

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

2. An adjustable lizard leash with adorable wings so they can let their reptile explore outside without getting lost.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "The smallest-size collar leash was perfect for my frilled lizard. Easy to put on. Much easier to remove. Secure. The leash has many snap-ons that are very useful in some situations." —Jon

Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in two colors).

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

Promising review: "My cat and I are both obsessed. The bird is even cuter in person. The string is soft and thick. It clearly will not easily break or fray, which is important for me because, for whatever reason, when it comes to wands, my cat is just as interested in the string as whatever is on the end of it. The bird is a great size (perfect for snagging but not too bulky), and the ribbons on the end are clearly quality. This has quickly become one of her favorite toys! Can't recommend enough!" —peaches

Shipping Info: You can qualify for free one-to-three-day shipping on orders over $49. For anything under $49, a $4.95 flat rate applies.

Get it from Chewy for $2.68 (also available in purple).

4. A lick mat that can be attached to a shower wall to distract skittish dogs with yummy peanut butter while their human gives them a bath or grooms them. The dog owner you give this to might just love you forever.

Promising review: "I used this to calm my hyper-neurotic schnauzer during grooming. Poor little guy was abused by a groomer when he was young, and has been VERY difficult to groom ever since. I’ve long been on the lookout for anything that will help calm him. Can’t take him to a groomer anymore, because he gets so stressed out. Grooming can take hours because he is so nervous. This tool was amazing. I was able to use the electric trimmer to do his belly, back, and hindquarters quickly with no drama! Going to try it with my other schnauzer during his bath. My advice is to use just a little peanut butter or wet dog food at a time. Very thin layer. That way the dog really has to work for it and doesn’t fill up and get bored. This is the best grooming aid ever! It’s a wonderful, wonderful thing!" —Jeannie

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

5. A dog raincoat that's just as functional as it is adorable. It'll keep their dog's fur dry thanks to the waterproof fabric, and with holes for a leash and reflective strips on the outside, it's the perfect walking-in-the-rain outfit.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Love these raincoats. Ordered three altogether. They are tough, cute, and keep my dogs dry. I have purchased other flimsy raincoats that did not keep my dogs dry. I am extremely pleased with these. The little hoods are cute too. The purpose of the raincoats are so that I only have to dry off their feet when they return from their walk. These sturdy little coats are great. And my furry kids seem to like them and and they stay in place without slipping and sliding. Fantastic price for great product." —Barbara N.

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $10.10+ (available in sizes XS–XXL).

6. A set of ridiculously cool-looking dog toys from Wild One that are made out of 100% natural rubber. They're designed to stand up to strong chompers and the color and designs are so aesthetically pleasing, no one will even mind when their pup leaves them on the living room floor.

The set comes with a Triangle TugTwist Toss, and Bolt Bite, which can all be bought individually as well.

7. A ball launcher that tosses a ball farther, meaning they'll have more time to rest their arm between throws. Bonus: They'll never have to actually touch the slobbery ball.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "She absolutely loves this and it makes playtime so much easier. I’m recommending one to all of our friends with active dogs whose arms get tired of throwing! This is a must; no more wet soggy balls to pick up." —Kami Cowley

Promising review: "My 85-lb Labrador mix is comfy as can be on the Jumbo size. I was pleasantly surprised at how big this bed actually is, bigger than the XL beds I have seen elsewhere. She can spread out on this one. She's an old dog and seems to find this bed very easy on her old bones. I don't know yet what the longevity will be, but have bought more expensive beds that didn't last long, So if I get a year out of this one I will be happy." —Leslie K

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in five sizes and 14 colors).

9. Or this shaggy, donut-shaped dog bed designed to calm down anxious dogs. The dog owner you give this to will greatly appreciate how secure and supported their four-legged friend will feel as they burrow into the bed.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Our 11-pound Chihuahua, Lucy, absolutely loves this bed! It took her a few minutes to get used to this new thing in her life after we first introduced her to it, and now she practically lives in it! We bought the small size. It’s incredibly soft and well-padded on the sides and the bottom. The interior edges are deep enough that she can burrow into them. She’ll often put her leg(s) or head into that area. It’s as comfortable when placed on our hardwood floors as when it’s on the sofa. If they came in human size, I’d be tempted to order one for myself! 😁" —katydid26

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $28.73+ (available in four sizes and eight colors).

10. A car seat cover for anyone who is sick and tired of vacuuming up clumps of shedded dog fur after every car ride. It's also waterproof and scratchproof, so it'll protect the car seats from any messes the dog might track in.

Promising review: "I have a Swiss shepherd and he often gets very messy. I used to take him to the park and lake without a seat cover and my car was a big mess. My last cover broke pretty quickly so I replaced it with this one. I love the nonslip bottom; it is waterproof and protects my car seats from mud, water and fur. The seat belt openings are large enough. This is a great product, high quality and reasonably priced." —electric

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $36.96+ (available in two sizes and four colors).

11. A microchip pet feeder that only opens when the cat with the assigned microchip approaches. This is great for multi-cat households where one cat likes to be a jerk and steal food from the other.

Amazon

Promising review: "At first, I thought these were a little overpriced. After all, it's a cat food feeder, right? Turns out, after a week of use, these are worth every penny. I have three cats. One is a diabetic and I just learned that one is starting to have kidney problems. Food for these two situations is completely different. The diabetic can't eat the renal food, and the one with the kidney issues can't eat the diabetic food. These feeders work well and seem sturdy. Most of all, they allow me the peace of mind to know who is eating what without having to stand over the three of them all the time. As all of you know, that's an impossibility, especially when the cats like to graze and you have to go to work." —Amazon Customer

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $172.49.

12. A set of waterproof dog booties to keep their dog's paws from getting damaged due to rough surfaces, hot pavement, or sharp thorns. With these on, their dog can roam free and the owner can relax knowing their dog is protected.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Awesome booties. These babies stay on. She runs, jumps and does everything she normally does except, she can't scratch if needed. (Just gonna have to wait, that's all.) Bought a size 6 for my 50-lb. girl pitty. She's small but solid. Live in NW 'burbs of Chicago. We walk a couple of miles a day. Our neighborhood has no sidewalks. When it sleets or snows, road salt is an issue. As most dogs do, she likes to off-road it, so it's in the snow, on the street, repeat. These keep her paws from getting packed up with snow and salt. Initially, it's kind of a hassle getting them on, but it gets easier. If you buy them, put them on your dog in the house and let figure them out. And strap 'em down good." —earshplitten

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in seven sizes and six colors).

13. Or a pair of RifRuf dog booties that protects their dog's feet while looking so dang stylish. With a durable rubber sole, a breathable mesh upper portion, and adjustable straps, these functional yet fashionable dog sneakers are made from the same material as human sneakers!

RIFRUF

If they have a dog with bigger front paws, you can get split sizes (denoted with "/") so they'll get two shoes in each size.

RifRuf is an Asian-owned small business that's creating design-driven dog shoes. The idea for the shoes was developed when one of the co-owner's dogs kept getting irritated paws while living in New York, and they wanted a pair of shoes that met their high expectations for paw protection and style.

Promising review: "I love these shoes, my pup doesn't have any issues running, walking or jumping. They are of great quality and really sturdy. Easy to clean, well put together, and a great-looking shoe." —Maria

Shipping Info: They offer free standard shipping within the contiguous US and flat $15 standard shipping to Canada on all orders. You can also get rush shipping (two to three business days) for $20 in the contiguous US If the size or color you selected is on preorder, it will ship by mid–late November.

14. An elevated dog and cat bowl that is perfect for messy eaters. The surrounding barriers stop any food from escaping, and spilled water is caught in a basin below.

amazon.com

Promising review: "My two cats always had a habit of playing with their water bowls and spilling water everywhere. I hated cleaning it up constantly. I was looking for a solution when I came across the Neater Feeder and thought it was a great idea. It is small but it's the perfect size for both my cats. Not only did this product look super nice when I set it up it actually worked!! All of the water got trapped on the bottom and the food was trapped on the top as well. Made cleanup so much easier." —Kelli Palen

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Promising review: "This bowl is such an excellent quality. I was a little hesitant to spend so much on a bowl for our new goldendoodle but I couldn’t find anything I liked from lots of time scouring all the pet stores and looking elsewhere online. I finally purchased and it arrived yesterday and I am so glad I ended up getting this set. The size is perfect and the colors look great in my home. Not the eyesore dog accessories usually are at all! The craftsmanship is wonderful I look forward to my pup using it for years to come. He seems to like it, too!" —Elizabeth L.

amazon.com

Promising review: "All five of my fur babies love this little guy. They took to it immediately, no hesitation at all, even though they have never had a fountain to drink from before. The pump is whisper quiet and provides a nice flow over the little flower. The filter needed rinsing out after a week, but like I said I have five cats, so cat hair is pretty much a seasoning in my house." —The Redhead

21. Or this interactive toy that'll keep small pets like rabbits and chinchillas occupied while they search for treats hidden in the toy.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This product is absolutely wonderful. I have a very smart rabbit who constantly needs enrichment. The fact that this product has different levels of intensity and how hard it is to reach the treats inside makes it more enriching for my rabbit. He absolutely loves this thing and figured it out fairly quickly. It will keep him busy for a good hour or two, which is wonderful! I would definitely recommend to anyone who owns a rabbit!" —Sam25

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Chewy for $76.99 (currently available in small).

Promising review: "We are foster parents to a LOT of kittens, and while we wait for them to find their forever homes, even though we clean the litter twice daily, things can get smelly. I was certainly skeptical about this candle because all the reviews heralded it as some sort of miracle product. But it totally is. The first night I came home that it had been delivered, my partner had lit it and I walked into a house that DID NOT SMELL LIKE CAT despite there being 11 kittens actively everywhere. Poop smell — gone. Kitten fart smell — GONE. General messy kitten smell — GONE. We like keeping our house clean and safe for the little ones in our care, and this helps us feel a little more sane while we take care of our own cats, and take care of the ones still looking for their families." —Elizabeth Lincoln

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

24. A towered track ball toy that activates a cat's natural hunting instincts, which means they'll stop pouncing on random items around the house and focus on playing with this toy instead.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "My first thought when I opened it was it looks kind of a like a baby toy. It is absolutely adorable and it has been the favorite toy since we got it. I have three cats, aged 5, 1, and 5 months. My oldest cat is not too playful usually, so I didn't think she would enjoy it. The first one to check it out was the youngest, who immediately began having the time of his life. He played with this toy for at least an hour straight! I noticed while he was playing with it, the oldest cat was watching very intently. Sure enough, as soon as the kitten walked away she was all over it. All of my cats love this, which I can't say about any of their other toys." —jjblh

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $10.88+ (available in three colors).

Promising review: "I get lots of compliments for how cute my dachshunds look and the fit is perfect. Not a single rash or chafing on either of my pups, even after miles-long hikes. My little girl pup has sensitive skin with some dilute alopecia in her armpits (hairless patches), and she has never shown any signs of irritation from this harness. It fits loosely enough to wear over a sweater in the winter while still being breathable in the summer, but still snug and secure — no wiggle room to escape." —MotherOfDachshunds

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XXXS–XL and 13 colors).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Great product for the price. Premium-quality bowl. Holds up to everyday use. We always have it clipped onto our dogs leash and also keep one in the car. Both bowls come with a matching color clip. Collapses down with little to no effort but stands up great for food and water. Would recommend!" —Kyle

Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ for a pack of two (available in two sizes and four color combinations)

28. A fish-shaped toy that'll keep their cat entertained for hours as it flips and flops around. It has a pouch to place catnip in so their cat will be attracted to this toy the second the box opens.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This toy has bewitched and confounded my big boy, Garfield. The fish is a nice, substantial size, easy for my rather big cat to grab and kick, chew and lick. The battery charges rapidly — less than 30 minutes to full charge — and lasts a fairly long time, through numerous play sessions. As I was unwrapping the fish, my cat immediately came over to 'help,' and seemed really excited and anxious for me to give it to him so I suspect it had some catnip scent initially. If that's true, then it's very clever of the toy developer, since that scent ensured that Garfield took to it right away. He was a bit unsure the first time the fish started to 'flop' but he figured it out fairly quickly." —B. Smith

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four designs).

29. A deshedding brush for dogs and cats that seemingly leave behind more fur on the carpet and furniture than is actually still on their bodies.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I don’t know what kind of sorcery was involved in the creation of this brush but I will always make sure I have one around for as long as I have cats. I’ve bought lots of other brushes that didn’t seem to do much so I didn’t bother brushing regularly and just vacuumed and lint rolled more often. This brush is a game changer. I could go longer and get more hair off but even though they enjoy the brush, that’s the max amount of time they’ll tolerate being brushed. I’m sure over time I’ll get less hair off of them each brushing session and their shedding will decrease as advertised if I keep up with it. Since I first brushed them with this three days ago I’ve definitely seen a significant reduction in cat hair around the house." —Dani

Shipping Info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will arrive by Christmas (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $15.87+ (available in three colors).

30. Or this pet grooming glove with 255 silicone grooming tips that will essentially massage their dog as they run the glove over their dog's body to pick up loose hair. Their pup will seriously love how good it feels, making grooming time so much more enjoyable for everyone involved.

Promising review: I have a 4-month-old husky pup (Sasha) who just started shedding. These grooming gloves are the perfect solution! My puppy would sit and let you scratch her all day if you had the time! I can sit and wipe her down and 'scratch/pet' her with the gloves on and she can't get enough of it! It is a win-win scenario. The gloves are super easy to clean, too. I initially made the mistake of trying to pull all of the hair off, which doesn't work well since it is obviously meant to hold on to the hair. Instead, rub the gloves together like you are trying to warm your hands and the hair will quickly ball up and fall off into the trashcan!" —IT Guy

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

MeowyJanes is a wonderfully named small business based in New Egypt, New Jersey. It specializes in catnip and catnip alternatives.

Promising review: "I have two young Siamese mix cats that chew wires, shoes, wooden spoons. These chew sticks are perfect for them. They sniff the sticks, rub on them, and then start chewing. My two cats that are over 10 years old just rub on them but don't enjoy chewing them. If you have a very active cat that does destructive chewing, these are a great substitute." —JEM4612

Ot has a locking mechanism to prevent accidents, and also has a special metal guard on the back side to keep you from clipping the nails too far. I didn't even notice it at first, but there is a built-in nail file that slides conveniently into the handle! These are sharp enough to get the job done right on the first try." –Cara

Promising review: "Litter mats that I've tried in the past came with a few downfalls: 1) my cat didn't like stepping on them and would instead launch himself out of the box (along with his litter) to avoid it, and 2) they were terrible to clean if the cat overshot the box or puked on it. This mat has none of those problems! I was worried about cleaning puke/clumped litter out of these little hexagons but since the mat can be "opened up" a rinse under the bathtub faucet was all it needed! I'd like to thank my cat, who threw up on this mat just hours after it arrived, for making it possible to bring you this review." —Christina
