These Pet Grooming Gloves Keep Your Animal Cleanvia AmazonWhat cat doesn't love a good rubdown? These K&K Pet Grooming Gloves allow you to give your feline friend a relaxing massage while cutting down on excess hair at the same time.

Simple, effective, and much more fun than waiting for the hair to fall out so you can vacuum it up later.
A Kettle That Heats Water Ultra-Quickvia Amazon
For a tea-drinker like myself, this electric kettle is an awesome find. It brings water to a rolling boil in an ultra-quick 7 minutes or less depending on how much water you use. When you go through as much tea as my household does, that's pretty important.
It makes boiling water for pasta or any type of dinner easier than ever and looks good while doing it. I love a multitasker.
These Magic Erasers Are Worth Their Weight In Goldvia AmazonIf you've got kids around the house (and even if you don't), these are going to come in handy.

It'll remove crayon from walls, grease from your stovetop, and much more.
This Makeup Organizer Made From Durable Acrylicvia AmazonPersonally, I like to keep my makeup spread out all over the bathroom just to piss my boyfriend off — but you?

The added engraving is a sweet touch that he'll see every time he breaks out your "Honey-Do" list.

Keep An Eye On Your Pet While You're Gone With The Petcubevia Amazon
Every now and then, if I am gone for a while, my oldest corgi gets separation anxiety and chews on furniture and walls. Because of this, I like keeping an eye on her when possible. The Petcube gives you 1080p HD video with night-vision, built-in vet chat, and the ability to speak to your pup to calm them down or just say hello. Who doesn't want a way to check in on their pup while they're at work?

This Slow Feeder Adds Stimulation to Mealtimes and is Great for Wet Foodvia Amazon
Check out this amazing slow feeder bowl. I like rotating this out with the puzzle feeder, so that my puppy doesn't get too acclimated too quickly to one or the other. It uses an elevated design to keep kibble from getting too clumped together. I also use it for wet foods, which would otherwise be too much of a pain to clean out of the other one. It's such a cool gadget to keep pets from chomping down too quickly and to keep them interested at mealtimes.

These Dry-Erase Sticky Notes for Work Remindersvia Amazon
I'm not the best at remembering all the little things I have to get done during the workweek, so I tried out these dry-erase sticky notes that I saw on @taponlinefinds 's TikTok.

A Filtered Water Fountain Made For Pets
You might think your pet doesn't need this water fountain, but trust me — my little French bulldog started drinking way more water since we got it.
