Posted by Erin Ballinger

Dogs love their (human) mothers. Mom makes sure Fido is clean, healthy and always fed on time. She gets up in the middle of the night to take her pups out, is a poop-scooping queen at the dog park, and gives the best snuggles. As a way to show appreciation for all that she does for her four-legged children, we’ve compiled a list of 10 of the best gift ideas for the special dog mom in your life, update for Mother’s Day 2020 or National Dog Moms Day. Dog mamas, we’re sure your pup would want you to treat yourself to something amazing from this list, too!

1. Flowers From Fido

You can never go wrong when you give any mother a bouquet of flowers. We like the “Precious Pup" floral arrangement from 1-800-Flowers (which is delivered by UPS, FedEx, USPS or a local florist with no physical contact necessary), but any arrangement will do. If you’d prefer to gift some seeds (like these for dog-friendly zinnias) to grow in her garden, we’re sure her pup can help with the fertilizer. Check out our guide to the best flora to plant in your pet-friendly garden.

The "Precious Pup" floral arrangement starts at $59.99 on 1-800-Flowers.

2. Spend Quality Time Together in the Kitchen

Dog moms will squeal with delight when they open a custom portrait of their pup! Afraid that commissioning a one-of-a-kind piece of art is out of your price range? Have no fear, Etsy offers several affordable options for custom pet portraits. Some artists can rush orders to be available in time for Mother’s Day if you’ve been “paw-crastinating."

5. A Furbo Dog Camera

It’s an interactive, smart dog camera that will allow mom to see in high-definition, talk to and hear, as well as toss treats to her dog from the Furbo app on her smartphone.

A gift of matching Joggies pajamas are sure to be a bit hit with the dog mom who likes to curl up on the sofa with her pup and binge-watch the best dog movies on Netflix. And let’s be honest, who couldn’t use more loungewear right now? We chose these hooded onesies because they are made out of sweatsuit material and can be worn as outerwear on walks through the neighborhood, too.

Joggies Family Matching Hoodie Onesies cost $17.95 for dogs and up to $44.95 for adults on Amazon.

7. Custom Dog Socks

Now more than ever, it’s important to appreciate the little things. Like being able to enjoy a drive-thru Starbucks run with Fido. Roll the windows down, turn up the tunes, and treat the dog mom in your life to her favorite caffeinated beverage and her four-legged copilot to a puppuccino. It’s sure to perk them both up!
