How to Spoil Your Hamster This Christmas

The festive season is a time of giving, and finding the ultimate Christmas gift for your friends and family isn’t an easy task. Between the party planning and frantic shopping, it can be easy to forget about the furry members of the family, who no doubt also deserve to be spoiled with a gift under the tree this year. If you’re a Hamster parent looking for the pawfect gift, you’ve come to the right place.

Below, we’ve compiled our best ideas on how to spoil your hammy this holiday season, from ideas on decorating his enclosure to some yummy treats he’d no doubt appreciate, to the top recommended toys!

Decorate His Enclosure

Just as we put up decorations and get into the holiday spirit in our own homes each year, why not do the same for your hamster? The ROSEWOOD Naturals Wintery Hay Cottage is a perfect wintery addition to any hamster cage. A cosy house made from tough, fun to gnaw parchment board coated in meadow hay, it is also topped with a real coconut snow roof! Perfect for getting into the Christmassy mood.

The CUPID & COMET Fiesta Snowflakes make for a colourful, seasonal decoration in your pet’s home, as well as a great gnaw. They’re made from wood fibres combined with vegetable extracts and alfalfa, and are as hard as solid woods. They cannot splinter and, like other safe woods, they are safe to consume and are a source of beneficial indigestible fibre.

You can also brighten up your hamster’s home with our 15cm diameter, CUPID & COMET Christmas Wreath. Made from natural corn leaf, loofa and slices of wood, on a metal frame, it is fun and safe to nibble for all small pets.

Feed Him Festive Food

Treat your hamster to some delicious food to nibble on this festive season, such as the CUPID & COMET Edible Christmas Puzzle Tree, which is a fun, edible forage tray that is made from wood fibres combined with vegetable extracts and alfalfa. Ideal for adding your own treats, but comes with wood and alfalfa based edible gnaws.

Or why not check out CUPID & COMET Christmas Cake for Small Animals? A wonderful treat to give your pets as you’re enjoying your own Christmas cake at the table, this guilt-free Christmas cake doesn’t have any dairy or added sugar, just 100% natural ingredients. The edible, cellulose-fibre walls and lid are dressed in scrummy crushed carob pods (which are rich in beneficial phytochemicals and indigestible fibre) and coconut, topped with two carrot-shaped “holly leaves” and lingonberries: all hiding a wonderful herbal salad mix filling pets will love to nibble and forage.

The CUPID & COMET Berry, Carrot ‘N’ Coconut Trees is a delicious treat for any hamster. These vegetable-based trees are decorated with carrot, coconut and vitamin C-rich elderberries. They are also packed with herbs; plus, beneficial linseed. Crisp, crunchy and loved by all Small Animals.

Holiday Entertainment

Looking to keep your hamster entertained during the holidays? The CUPID & COMET Pudding Snuffle Forage Mat is ideal for hunting for treats and keeping your pet occupied for hours. Perfect for playing hide and seek with your hamster’s favourite dry food or treats.

The CUPID & COMET Water Hyacinth Trio Tree is a fun to chew, hanging toy is made from 100% natural materials with no glues or metals. The rattan star sits atop two woven, water hyacinth balls. It’s 20cm tall and 8cm wide. Hang as one toy, or remove the cord to have three separate toys.

The TRIXIE Cuddly Tunnel for Small Animals is a great addition to any hamster obstacle course. The tunnel acts as a maze for your pet to scoot through, where you can hide some tasty treats within for them to find. This toy will appeal to their digging and burrowing instincts, as well if they simply want to hide away or go asleep. The Nylon/Polyester fleece makes it perfect for your little pet to snuggle into.

If it’s one thing all breeds of hamster love, it’s chewing. Hamsters require a decent supply of items and toys that they can gnaw on to keep their continuously growing teeth in top condition. Toys such as TRIXIE Natural Living Bark Wood Dumbbells and TRIXIE Straw Carrot and Corn Cob will help appeal to your hamster’s natural chewing urges and keep their teeth healthy and strong.

Hamster wheels make for fantastic exercise outlets for your hamster. The TRIXIE Wooden Exercise Wheel has a paw-friendly running surface made of cork, and has a smooth and quiet motion due to ball-bearing. Remember, the size of any exercise wheel you choose should be suitable for your breed of hamster. For more on breeds of hamster, see our blog post here.
