Michelle's FoodNetwork.com Picks:
Is there anything better on a cold winter's night than a steamy cup of chocolatey cocoa? No, we didn't think so. Though your pup won't be able to drink any with you, they can still play with their own cup thanks to this abarkable hide-and-sneak plush toy. Best part of all — unlike your human-version, your pup’s marshmallows will only disappear for a second or two.
If you've been working from home for the last few months and have struggled to adequately keep your pup entertained at the same time, you'll want to add this app-controlled Wicked Bone to your shopping cart asap! Simply set it to "interactive mode" on days when you're really swamped and sit back as your pup plays a game of fetch all by themself.
Health is a big priority these days, so give yourself some extra peace of mind when it comes to your pet’s overall wellbeing with these lamb-flavored chewy bites from Zesty Paws. Each one is packed full of natural ingredients, like apple cider vinegar and salmon oil, to help promote immune system activity and digestive health, and combat things like rashes, itching and sneezing. The brand also just came out with a cat-friendly version too, so stocking up for all your furry friends this cold and flu season has never been easier.
Though this life-sized gingerbread house isn't made from freshly baked cookies, sugary icing or gumdrops, it's still sure to get everyone in your household purring with excitement this holiday season. It's made from waterproof vinyl and nylon and comes with a heated floor pad to add a little extra warmth on those frosty days when your kitty prefers to hang out on the porch or in the garage.
Whether your pup spends their day rockin' around the Christmas tree or walking in a winter wonderland, keeping him or her adequately hydrated has never been more convenient thanks to this collapsible travel bowl. Not only is it extremely lightweight, you can even fold it up and keep it in your bag or jacket pocket for easy access anytime. It's also machine washable, so you can fill it with biscuits and kibble, too!
If donning matching pajamas is part of your family's Christmas morning tradition, these adorable pet sized ones from Frisco are a must-buy. Not only are they made from super soft fleece to keep your fur baby adequately cozy, they also feature a whimsical Christmas cookie design to add an extra dose of sweetness to everyone's day.
Fair warning: once you see your dog snuggled up with this fuzzy velour throw blanket this winter, you're going to want one, too! Thankfully the brand also offers a human sized version! The very best part of all — 20% of your purchase will help fund dog rescue initiatives.
Get your kitten in on the cookie decorating fun this holiday season with this cat-friendly cake kit. Each one comes with a bag of microwavable turkey flavored cake mix, yogurt flavored frosting mix and a reusable fish-shaped baking pan to give your fur baby a sweet treat they can dig into while you're hosting your virtual cookie swap over Zoom.
Wish your pooch a very Merry Christmas with this festive holiday gift set from
I and Love and You. Each box is packed full of three bags of the brand's best-selling dog treats and an ugly sweater themed bandana to have your pup feeling merry and bright all season long.
Treat yourself while simultaneously spoiling your furry sidekick with this three-in-one gift. You'll get this super cute coffee mug and a bag of Grounds & Hounds' newest Lovable Coffee Blend, which contains notes of milk chocolate and toasted vanilla, while your pup gets this adorable latte-shaped squeaker toy. How's that for espresso’ing just how much you care!
You'll be able to see your furry friend when they're sleeping, know when they're awake and know if they've been bad or good with this high-tech, treat-tossing camera. It'll even send a notification to your phone when your pal is being a bit more naughty than nice.
Monkey bread was meant to be shared, and these scrumptious biscuits will help you do just that for your little (or big) pooch. Made from all-natural ingredients like bananas, honey and cinnamon, one whiff will be enough to get your pup's attention.
