Those of us that love dogs don’t consider them “pets.” We call them our children, our fur-kids, our babies. And, since dogs are members of the family, shouldn’t their human mom’s get to celebrate Mother’s Day, too?
Chances are if you’re reading this you know the deserving mother of a furkid, so here are some ideas for a meaningful gift that will make her Mother’s Day just paw-some!
Paw Print Keepsake
For sentimental puppy parents, paw-print keepsakes make the best gifts! Use an ink-pad and a piece of nice paper and frame the print or use a paw print kit to create a clay impression of her dog’s paw. Guaranteed to be a memento she’ll treasure for many Mother’s Days to come.
If your favorite Dog Mom loves her dog as much as we think she does, she’ll absolutely love a portrait of her favorite fur-kid. Enlarge her favorite photograph or hire an artist to paint a portrait and then find the perfect matte and frame to match her decor. Bring a box of tissues when you present your thoughtful gift!
A Fur-Mom Fanny Pack
Waist Pouch, Utility Belt, or Bum Bag—whatever you call it, a fun and funky Fanny Pack is the original hands-free accessory for fur-moms! Toss in a few of the dog’s favorite treats and some doodie bags for a totally awesome Mother’s Day walk!
Flowers are the quintessential Mother’s Day gift, and they’re appropriate for Dog Mom’s Day, too – with a slight adjustment. Many flowers are toxic to dogs, so if you’re buying flowers for your favorite dog mom, make sure they’re pet safe. Flowers to avoid are most lilies, Tulips, Azaleas, Bird of Paradise, Begonias, baby’s breath and Amaryllis.
Her furkids are perfectly safe if you give Daisies, African violets, Begonias, Orchids, or Roses. Don’t forget to finish off your flower arrangement in a cool dog-themed vase or flower pot!
Does Mom enjoy drinking wine? Turns out there are several dog-themed wines available! Grab a bottle or an assortment, and find some adorable dog-themed wine glasses and bottle stoppers to go with it! Bottoms up!
Here’s your chance to combine two of her favorite things – jewelry and dogs! Jewelry is another classic Mother’s Day gift, so why not find your favorite Dog Mom some dog-themed jewelry? Whether she’s into gold, silver, simple or sparkles, you can find a necklace, earrings, ring or bracelet to fit her fancy!
