Happy Mother’s Day
Cool Gifts For Dog Moms
Mother’s Day is this Sunday. How will you be celebrating?
I’m planning on having brunch with the family and spending a relaxing day outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather. For me, the best gift I could be given would be time with the whole family. Unfortunately, one daughter is living overseas but I will have my younger daughter and my “Favourite child” as the girls call him- little rescue pug Kilo.
Since adopting him into the family he has given me the gift of love and humor every day. He also gave me a little plush pug from PugALug Rescue- he likes being an only-dog-child. He then proceeded to claim it for himself.
Last year Talent Hound’s celebrated Mother’s Day with a fun compilation video celebrating the love between moms and their fur babies.
Kilo and I also whipped up some tasty and healthy Fruity Frosty Hearts.
For Mother’s Day this year, we’ve compiled some cool gifts out there for the moms who love dogs! From foster moms and dog sitters to lifetime fur moms, dog mamas deserve to be spoiled. I mean after the year of “accidents”, training sessions and maybe some destroyed shoes in my case, Mom deserves some pampering. If you want to thank a dog mom in your life, consider these amazing gift ideas we found around the web.
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas For Dog Moms
We love personalizing gifts! Talent Hounds has made custom t-shirts, coffee mugs and tote bags. These are all available from a variety of sources including Vistaprint. We will soon be offering customized phone cases with Dog photos – I can’t wait for mine.
Photo Sessions or Portraits
I think a photo session with a local pet photographer, or a portrait by someone like our talented friend Sadie or a customized plush or miniature in the image of a dog can all make wonderful gifts.
The Fidose of Reality Dog Lovers’ Online Store features adorable t-shirts, unique dog lover jewelry, home accents, and more. I saw some of this fabulous range at the Wigglebutts Uncorked Gala. Carol’s Heart Beats Dog so her products are perfect for Dog Moms.
Fall in love with this beautiful, unique and symbolic bracelet that memorializes the relationship between a mom and a dog who has passed on. Each piece features the following elements, all designed to honor the memory of her beloved pup:
- 1 Paw Bead: Symbolizes the paw prints they left on your heart
- 1 Heart Bead: Symbolizes the piece of your heart they took with them
- 22 White Agate Beads: Each bead represents a meal donation made in honor of your dog. For each purchase, 22 meals will be donated to rescues and shelters through RescueBank®
Kilo the Pug and Beau are both models for this awesome local company that makes great doggie bow ties. Make mom happy with a fun way to dress up her dog. Check out the petals and collars also available.
Dog Books By and For Dog Lovers
Books about dogs or featuring dogs can make amazing gifts. Check out our lists below to find the perfect choice:
Doggy Boot Scrapers
With spring comes rain and with rain comes mud. I was given a fabulous boot scraper that sits by the front door so I looked around and found some on Amazon. A really attractive and useful gift for a Dog Mom. My husband would say a hair remover or vaccuum would be even more useful with all Kilo’s black hair everywhere.
Every day can be “bring your dog to work” day! I love this desk frame that comes with an easy DIY kit to framing your dog’s pawprint for life.
Never miss a playdate! Choose your mom’s fave breed for the clock.
Dog Moms can be proud in this fun t-shirt.
BarkShop/Rescued Wine‘s Candles
Wine bottles transformed into beautiful candles that come in Champagne, Cabernet, and Mimosa. Bonus: a portion of the profits goes to help pups in need. It’s a win-win for the wine loving dog mom! Just make sure to keep candles out of reach of all pets.
This beautiful bracelet has a blue bone that says “dog mom” and several stunning coordinating beads.
Perfect for crafty dog moms! This fun kit makes ornaments she can hang on the wall, Christmas tree, or tie around a candle or hurricane vase for a fun accent to any décor!
Pet Cube allows you to talk to your dog through the device and shoot (safe) lasers to play with them when you’re not home!
BarkShop/Fenella Smith‘s Pug Throw Pillow
This might just be for me 😉
I also love a lot of the Pug gear from Scribble Pug for fellow Pug Moms.
Gifts That Keep Giving
You can make a donation to a charity in someone’s name or buy goods from places that give back like Auction4PetSupplies
Over the last year, we have seen great posts on beautiful DIY gifts like Treat Jars with homemade or store-bought dog treats and last week a Schedule Board from Miss Molly Says
A Ticket to the BlogPaws Conference
I already have my ticket for the annual BlogPaws Conference in June, but I think that would make a wonderful Dog Mom gift if I did not.
