For eight days and nights every year, Jewish families come together to celebrate Hanukkah by lighting the menorah, eating traditional foods, and gifting each other presents. Naturally, you don't want the most important members of your family—your pets, of course!—to feel like they're left out of the celebrations.

That's why we rounded up the best Hanukkah pet products so your dog or cat can join in on the holiday fun. Each night as everyone exchanges presents, your pet will be paws-itively kvelling when they realize one of the gifts is for them! Your dog or cat might not be able to play dreidel, but that doesn't mean he can't chew on his own plushy version with these adorable dreidel and gelt toys. From festive bandanas to menorah-shaped chew toys, these Hanukkah pet products help your favorite furry friend get in the festive spirit while also creating adorable photo opportunities.
