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?)

We became obsessed with C.Bonz’s custom embroidered sweaters back in October, when we sat down to chat with founder and designer Celine Benz. A fave among celebs like Hilary Duff, Lil Wayne, and Lady Gaga, C.Bonz is perfect for the haute couture homebody. Put the pup’s name above their photo or do something a little different like Duff chose to do while working with Benz:

“I did a portrait of [Duff’s] two chickens on her Goyard bag,” she told The Wildest last fall. “She sent the bag back to me after one of the chickens died, and we added ‘RIP,’ so now it says, ‘RIP Delores.’”

Maybe keep it a little lighter this time, but here’s a reminder to have some fun with your C.Bonz gift. —Rebecca Caplan

Urban Oasis Crystal-Infused Water Bottle

While many cities are quickly doubling down on their dog-friendliness by offering communal water bowls at parks, outside of restaurants, or near hiking trails, the unfortunate truth is that these tend to house bacteria and other toxins your pet should surely avoid. The more expected truth is that many dog moms — with their superhuman preparedness — are probably aware. However, they may not be aware of this solution, so give them a pleasant surprise for once — contrary to what their dog usually spontaneously presents on the carpet. Made of 100 percent eco-friendly and non-toxic materials, this bottle from Merci Collective features a selection of hand-picked healing crystals stationed in the middle to help promote better energy and uplift mental and physical health. —SZ
