Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)
They say that becoming a mother is the greatest gift on earth. They are also usually explaining why they forgot to send flowers on Mother’s Day. By all accounts, being a mom is equally exhausting and rewarding — and let us not forget about dog moms in this appreciation shuffle. As a symbol of the warmth, sacrifice, and love humankind is capable of, moms deserve more than a bouquet of flowers once a year (though, the pet-friendly flower bouquets we picked out are pretty nice).
We rounded up the most creative gift picks to show gratitude to the dog mom in your life, from custom pet portraits to matching designer cardigans to self care essentials for both mom and pup. Also, seriously — do not forget the flowers this year.
Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)
These stems are sure to make Mom smile (and avoid a trip to the pet ER).
Custom ceramics, whimsical puzzles, plus feline-themed kicks, clutches, candles, and more.
It’s Mother’s Day. These products that are cool, calming, and for good causes.
Nothing beats a thoughtful gift (and nothing evokes oohs and awws like our beloved pets).
