Dogs express their gratitude in many ways, from a simple wag of the tail to a barrage of sloppy kisses all over your face. But while dogs are great at showing the love, it’s safe to say that gift giving is not their forte. In fact, their idea of a “present” is usually something they killed in the yard, or a turd on the living room carpet.
I think we can all agree that dog moms deserve better than that. That’s why we’ve put together this selection of the best gifts for dog moms. Whether it’s for Mother’s Day, Christmas, a birthday, or just because, these dog mom gifts are sure to melt the heart of any proud fur mama.
“Best Dog Mom Ever” Coffee MugThere are lots of coffee cups for dog lovers on the market, but this one seems especially fitting for the truly devoted dog mom. Of course, coffee cups featuring the words “Best Mom Ever” have been a go-to gift from time immemorial. This handsome mug emphasizes that yes, dog moms are moms, too.
Willow Tree Angel of FriendshipThis handcrafted figurine makes a thoughtful gift for a rescue dog mom or someone who has recently lost a beloved fur baby. Heck, it’s great for any sentimental dog mom who unabashedly loves and treasures her pups. Standing about 5 inches tall, this decoration comes with a card bearing a message about friendship.
Whistle 3 GPS Pet TrackerFor the overprotective dog mom, there’s this nifty gadget. It attaches to the dog’s collar and allows mom to track Fido’s every move via phone app. There are just a couple of caveats: 1) the dog must be in the United States, and 2) there’s a monthly subscription involved.
CJ&M Funny Dog TagConsider this the cheap alternative to the high-tech dog tracker above. If Fido gets lost, this hilarious dog tag should give his rescuer a good laugh. Note that there’s no option to get the dog’s details engraved on this tag – you or the dog mom recipient are responsible for that.
“Drinking Alone” Wine GlassThis stemless wine glass is perfect for ladies who love their wine almost as much as they love their dogs. The “drinking alone” etching is amusing, and guaranteed to get more amusing every time the glass is emptied.
Heymiss Womens Dog Mom ShirtHere’s something for the lady who wears her dog mom-ness with pride. While there are a number of “dog mom” shirts out there, this one caught our eye due to its style and simplicity. As the product page notes, this is a lightweight shirt rather than a thicker sweatshirt that you might expect based on a quick glance at the picture.
Forever Love Heart Pendant NecklaceThis sterling silver pendant makes a thoughtful gift for any jewelry loving dog mom. It comes with the optional engraving “Always in my heart,” which seems especially appropriate for someone who has recently lost a dog. You can find this same paw-and-heart design – with or without the engraving – in bracelet form.
Tuff Pupper PupFlask Portable Water BottleActive dog moms will appreciate this ingenious product, which makes it so much more convenient to give Fido a drink on long summer walks (not to mention car trips). The silicon “bowl” folds down when not in use, making this gadget as easy to carry as any other water bottle. Pop some ice cubes in there and you will have one happily hydrated hound.
Fire Hydrant Ceramic Treat JarThis is actually sold as a cookie jar, but it’s more fun to think of it as a treat jar for mom’s little whizzer. The ceramic jar stands about 11 inches tall, making it a nice size for dog biscuits and other canine goodies. Just make sure mom doesn’t leave it on the floor for any length of time, unless she wants it to get, er, wet.
“Best Friend” Tote BagFinally, here’s a gift idea for dog moms who are always carrying too much stuff. This little tote bag features a cute design, with dog ears serving as handles and a touch of bling on the collar. Of course, you can always use this as a canine-themed gift bag to hold other presents you might like to give the lucky dog mom.
