Be it hitting holiday sales or getting all of that shopping done online, there’s one family member you may be forgetting to buy for: Your furry friend. We know -- outside of that catnip or chew toy, there aren’t always unique pet gifts at your local pet store. This year, find inspiration in these gifts for dogs, cats and other pets that we’ve rounded up from around the Web -- with prices and where to buy -- to make your pet’s holiday the happiest one yet!

Hyper Pet Hyper Dog 4 Ball Launcher Dog Toy: Perfect for the canine that’s relentless when it comes to that game of fetch. This machine launches tennis balls up to 200 feet, collapses for trips to the park, and provides hands-free ball pickup to avoid doggy slobber.
Buy it: $24.04 at Pet360.com

Frolicat Bolt Laser Cat Toy: This cat toy just might be as entertaining for you as it is for your feline, with a high-tech laser stand that sends out a red dot for your cat to chase around. You can control the laser yourself, or set it to automatic and let the laser move in random patterns.
Buy it: $20.99 at Perpetualkid.com

Brainy Bones: OK, so maybe your feline is the brains of the operation when it comes to the pet hierarchy in your household. But that doesn’t mean that your pooch shouldn’t receive a mentally stimulating treat as well! Gift them with Brainy Bones, an intelligent treat-dispensing toy.
Buy it: $6.99-$9.99 at Bed, Bath & Beyond

Airplane Cat House: The cute factor? Off the charts. Cats love to hide in boxes, so this cardboard model will make it more entertaining for both of you. Not only will it be playing to your cat's baser instincts, but most definitely give your entire family a giggle.

Buy it: $35 at Uncommongoods.com

Scent of a Canine: Even after the most caring baths, sometimes your dog just needs a spray of something nice. This year, consider a canine-safe fragrance, which can be used on both you and your dog (or, invest in an air freshener and wrap it up as a gift to both you and your pet!)
Buy it: $74 at Mungo & Maud

Critter Cruiser: If you have not a clue of what to get for your child’s hamster or gerbil (but they’re insisting upon something), check out the critter cruiser, a pet-powered exerciser for small animals. It’s an adjustable racing wheel that moves a small hot pink car.
Buy it: $17.99 at Wag.com
