It’s been a long year for our pets, too.

Sure, they were super stoked to find their favorite humans were suddenly home forever, which meant more walks, more playtime and more head scratches, but they’ve also had to put up with a lot more of our human bullshit. We’re sure you’ve gotten angry with your pup a few times for incessant barking during important Zoom calls or taken issue with your cat choosing to take their nap directly on your keyboard. We can also bet you’ve talked their fuzzy little ears off during quarantine, while unfortunately, transferring some of your human stress onto them.

We owe a lot to our official/unofficial support animals, and now more than ever, you should shower them with all the tasty treats, fun toys and fancy litter boxes they deserve this holiday season. So below, we’ve included items we think you and your furry friend will both love — from human-inspired food treats to ergonomic bowls and distracting toys, everything you need to get through these next few months together is here.

Wild One

Wild One Organic Baked Treat Kit

Treat your dog to the food they always beg for but can never have. Wild One recently launched three human food-inspired flavored treats: PB&J, Veggie Burger and Fruit Salad — all made with clean ingredients and Certified USDA Organic. This treat kit features the three 8oz. bags each, packed with 60 tasty treats.

Cat Person

Cat Person Bed + Bowl Bundle

Cat Person designs cat essentials to meet the needs of both your cat and your modern home decor. This bundle from the brand includes a 3-in-1 modular bed/canopy with memory foam that can be adjusted to fit your cat’s needs, along with the ergonomic Mesa Bowl that’s designed to keep your cat from hunching or agitating their whiskers.


Whimzees Holiday Dog Dental Treats Variety Packs

These holiday tree- and snowman-shaped dental treats are made with all-natural, non-GMO ingredients to keep your pup’s mouth clean all season long.


Revol Dog Crate

With an emphasis on safety, Revol has reinvented the clanky, slightly hazardous dog crate to become a much more attractive, injury-preventive cage. The Revol is completely collapsible with a handle and set of wheels and for seamless transportation or storage. It’s also stocked with a removable tray for easy cleaning, plus a divider and ceiling hatch for even easier puppy training.


YETI Boomer 8 Dog Bowl

Because even your best friend deserves to have their very own Yeti they can depend on. This Boomer Dog Bowl holds up to eight cups of water and kibble and is built to handle whatever your pooch throws at it. Plus, it’ll look pretty dashing on your kitchen floor.

Uncommon Goods

Laptop Cat Scratching Pad

Your WFH-buddy could use a working device of their own. This cat-approved cardboard laptop doubles as a convenient scratching pad and even includes a furry little computer mouse.

Max Bone

Max Bone Sport Leash

Made from a durable nylon fabric primed for lots of rough tugs, this sporty style Max Bone leash is lightweight, fits comfortably in hand and features reflective accents so you and your pup can stay safe on those late-night walks.

L.L. Bean

L.L. Bean Rugged Quilted Dog Blanket

A fan-favorite from L.L. Bean, this blanket features super-soft fleece on one side and a durable quilted cotton twill on the other, so whether you lay it on your floor, couch or backseat, your dog will love cozying up with this extra layer of comfort.


Baguette Catnip Cat Toy

Cats can have a little felt baguette filled with organic catnip, as a treat.


The Game by Fable

Feed, exercise and distract your dog all at once with “The Game” from modern pet brand Fable. Designed to “mimic the experience of hunting prey,” The Game can hold up to 1.5 cups of dry food and keeps your dog entertained for up to 30 minutes. You can also spread peanut butter on the silicone top for extra playtime and a lil treat.


Orvis ComfortFill-Eco Wraparound Dog Bed with Fleece

You have your weighted blanket, your dog has their wraparound security bed. This oval-shaped alcove is designed to increase their sense of safety, while the ComfortFill-Eco cushioning keeps them supported and elevated, and features a bit of spring, making it perfect for dogs who need to burrow or dig to get comfortable.

Wild One

Wild One The Sh*t Free 2021 Set

Speaking from personal experience, this Wild One duo has seriously elevated the most undesirable part of daily dog walks. The brand’s Poop Bag Carrier easily attaches to any leash or tote and makes bags quickly accessible. While the blush-colored, eco-friendly poop bags are noticeably thick, leak-proof and biodegradable. This appropriately named set includes a sleek carrier in the color of your choice and a 6-month supply of sturdy bags.


Good Pet Stuff Hidden Cat Litter Planter

In continuing with making your pet’s bathroom breaks better for everyone involved, for those who do their business indoors, this litter box disguised as a plant is perfect for owners who are tired of looking at their cat’s shit. Plus your cat will love the privacy.

The Good Dog

Hemp Dog Collar Avocado Corduroy

Crafted with hemp and organic cotton corduroy, this hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial dog collar looks good and feels even better, thanks to the ultrasoft material that won’t rub harshly against skin. Or if you’re a Cat Person, shop the feline counterpart.


Bloomscape Cat Grass

Cat Grass is an easy-to-grow plant cats are actually encouraged to munch on. Not only will it add some flavor to your home decor, but this plant from Bloomscape will help with your cat’s digestion, breath and boredom.
