Fully machine washable this enables the whole family to go out and have as much messy fun as they like with no washing worries later on.

3) Pet Hammock
We always like to have our pets close to us, which makes this attachable hammock great. The pet hammock is not just for cats but is also perfect for ferrets and other small pets. Made from mesh, the fabric is able to breathe and keep the pet cool whilst having a nap, or having a good people-watching session. It can hold up to 5kg of weight and includes clips for attachment. Available in two sizes, this can provide the pet with optimum comfort.
I think we can all agree that pet owners love their pets and would do anything for them. Including making their very own treats, to let them know that they are thought of and loved… and maybe also to give the owner a fun project for their Saturday Afternoons.
You can either go with the very sentimental customized, handmade dog treat cookie cutter, made from ovenproof plastic, complete with the name, very personal and looks quite classy. Or you can go for the Sunbeam Gourmet dog treat maker. Made with non-stick plates and includes recipes for the treats and a delicious pet-friendly frosting! Easy to use, and could be a fun project for the children to be involved with too!
