    Promising review: "We have a hamster named Nebula, and she has a space themed cage, so this blue bedding completes the look. She loves the bedding and has fun making hills with it." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $18.99 (available in 10 sizes and six colors)

    2. A two-floor Favola hamster cage equipped with a water bottle, wheel, and food dish because your pet's dream has always been to show off their home on MTV Cribs.

    Promising review: "I have purchased every kind of hamster cage there is over the years, and I think this one beats them all. The deep pan fully contains the bedding and gives plenty of space and depth for my pet to burrow around. It's about twice the size of your average Critter Trail cage, and it has well-defined corners, which help hamsters orient themselves. The wheel isn't silent, but it doesn't squeak, and it's the best kind: solid, one-piece construction that's safe for tiny feet and tails and also very easy to wipe clean. I love cleaning the cage, which is extremely easy. I make sure my hamster is on the lower level, then remove the wire top and the ramp." —Naya Tybs

    Price: $64.99

    3. A pack of cheese- or fruit-flavored Yogies treats made from real yogurt to switch things up for your ham when their other food gets boring.

    Promising review: "Our cute dwarf hammy ADORES these treats!! He literally smells the bag opening and knows it's coming, gets all excited and once we offer it to him, he steals it, gives it a few bites and runs to his hideout to stash the rest for later. I read about these in an article about healthy treats for hamsters. We just give him one a day, so he cherishes it even more!! I def recommend!!" —Mama knows best

    Price: $2.99+ (or Subscribe & Save for $2.84; available in two varieties)

    4. A 4-pound bag of Wild Harvest hamster food that includes everything hammies find delectable: grains, bite-sized fruits, nuts, vegetables, and seeds.

    Promising review: "Our new hamster loves this food. Well, he saves the brown log things for last, but I think that's because all the other stuff tastes better (I would too). There's corn, split peas, a variety of different seeds, Froot Loop-looking things — it goes on and on. It has a great variety, and I'm happy to feed it to my daughter's new hamster." —C. White

    Price: $5.47

    5. A pack of super-absorbent Arm & Hammer cage liners to control moisture and odor, making cage clean up so much easier.

    The Arm & Hammer cage liner

    Promising review: "Highly recommend! We have two robo hamsters, and it seemed like the day after cleaning their cages, it would begin to smell in the room. With these liners (and bedding on top), I can clean cages once a week (or even push it 10 days), and the room has no odor!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $6.14 (also available in a three-pack)

    6. A 10-pack of natural wooden pine toys and accessories that includes a swing, climbing ladder, seesaw, and molar string for the hamster who has never explicitly said they wanted to visit Disney World, but deserves their own theme park all the same.

    Promising review: "These hamster toys are fantastic. First of all, you’re getting an amazing deal for a large selection of toys for your hamster. I’ve only had to use two or three so far and none of them have even worn out yet. There is literally bound to be something your hamster will take a liking to in here. The one I found to be the best is the large hanging chew of the different log pieces. My hamster took a liking to it immediately, and it’s still the one he uses the most. Honestly, I think this is a no-brainer purchase if you’re looking for good toys for your hamster." —Brent Schoffstall

    Price: $18.88

    7. A quality hamster sand bathroom and scooper so your furry friend can relax at the end of the day with a tiny glass of wine, enjoy a soothing bath, and keep their fur clean.

    Promising review: "After reading some reviews that it might be too small for a Syrian, I was nervous to buy it, but I decided to give it a shot. I'm glad I did. He REALLY loves it, and I use the little scoop to clean it out every day and replace the sand in it every three days to make sure he isn't cleaning himself in soiled sand. The scoop is my favorite part." —Brittany

    Price: $12.99

    8. And a canister of bathing sand made with high quality ingredients so your hamster can soak for hours.

    Promising review: "I always buy this sand for my hamsters to bath in because all of the pet stores around me only sell dust, which is bad for them since the dust can cause breathing problems. My four little hamsters always enjoy getting fresh new sand, jumping right into it, and doing barrel rolls." —Whitney

    Price: $8.99

    9. A set of durable and adorable ceramic food dishes that are extremely easy to clean and will jazz up the look of any hamster home.

    Both of the decorative ceramic bowls

    Promising review: "We bought these for Astro, our teddy hamster. We got a set of bowls so that he could have one for his dry food and one for fresh fruits and veggies. He loves the bowls, and they hold a decent amount without taking up too much space in his tank. They are thick ceramic and easy to clean." —Mauyko

    Price: $15.99

    10. A super-silent exercise wheel with an adjustable base for the hamster that likes to go ham when running but tends to get the zoomies in the middle of the night.

    Promising review: "Don’t hesitate — this wheel is great! Our Syrian was having trouble with the pet store wheels. They would tilt and were too narrow for him to run comfortably. This wheel is super quiet, wide enough for our chunky Syrian boy and nice and sturdy. Overall, great quality." —JP

    Price: $25.99+ (available three sizes and twelve colors)

    11. A leak-proof water bottle to help quench your little bud's thirst without making a huge mess, compelling you to clean the cage yet again.

    The water bottle positioned in a hamster cage

    Promising review: "It never drips and is very easy to attach to the cage or readjust. It's a lot more secure (or at least feels a lot more secure) than bottles that are held in place by chains or wires. The product is separated into three parts (the attachment, the nozzle, and the actual bottle), and once the attachment is on the cage, it's very easy to take the nozzle and bottle off to refill (without having to readjust and position everything as with others). You just snap the bottle back on when you're done. They've also never had any issues drinking from it, as with some other bottles where they have difficulty moving the ball." —Kristen L Crumpacker

    Price: $10.99+ (available in six colors and packs of two)

    12. A three-chamber hamster hideaway because your ham wants all the adventures of a maze along with a solid place to stash their treats.

    Promising review: "I got this for my dwarf hamster for his first birthday, and he loves it! He barely uses his other hides anymore. He uses the backroom to store his food and sleep in, and I like to imagine he uses the front room as a sort of mudroom. It's really well-crafted and well put together, as well. I was surprised by the quality. I also love that the top is totally flat, so it's a platform where you can place other items and do activities — it doesn't feel like wasted space at all. I think this is the best purchase I've made for him yet." —E. Torres

    Price: $16.95+ (available in three styles)

    13. A canister of Nature's Miracle cage scrubbing wipes made with extra thick materials and odor-eliminating enzymes to make your least-favorite part of owning a hamster just a smidge easier.

    the cage wipes

    Promising review: "This product works really well for cleaning out my hamster's cage! The towel is made of a material that is similar to Lysol wipes, and it is of a size slightly larger than a facial tissue. It doesn't dry out quickly, and I am able to use just one towel to clean the entire cage. The towel has two sides to it. The 'scrubbing' side does an excellent job of removing the pee stains on cage surfaces. Although this product may be a little pricey, it has saved me a lot of time and trouble during cage cleaning and I would definitely recommend it. We are already at our second tub and there's really nothing we can complain about." —WE.Neo

    Price: $9.99 (for a pack of 30)

    14. A banana-shaped hamster hammock to keep your ham nice and warm in one of the cutest miniature beds ever created.

    Promising review: "Very good quality. It ended up being bigger than I expected. Our hamster really enjoyed this plush banana hideout. It was a Christmas present for him." —Anna Itzen

    Price: $8.99

    15. A small coconut hut for a ham who wants a safe and cozy hideout with a *touch* of a tropical feel.

    Promising review: "I love the coconut! It's adorable. Our hammie loves her coconut house! She’s a Syrian and fits perfectly in it. I think she feels very safe in it." —Jennifer

    Price: $9.99
