The 21 Gifts for Dog Moms

Gifts for the Pupper

1. Shampoo

Hepper Colloidal Oatmeal Pet Shampoo

All dogs need baths once in a while, and if your friend’s pup is smelling more like a dog than they’d like them to, the Hepper Colloidal Oatmeal Pet Shampoo will be their best friend. This nourishing and moisturizing shampoo has a lovely aloe and cucumber scent. It is made with high-quality, natural ingredients, so it’s something they can feel good about using on their beloved pet.

2. Grooming Kit

FurMe Dog & Cat Grooming Vacuum Kit new

This all-in-one grooming kit contains everything the dog mom on your Christmas list needs to tackle her at-home grooms. It includes things like grooming and deshedding brushes, crevice cleaning heads, cleaning brushes, and electric clippers with various guards. The vacuum’s whisper-quiet function is half as loud as regular vacuums, making it ideal for sound-sensitive pups.

3. Wash Wipes

Hepper Pet Wash Wipes

Pet wash wipes are something every dog owner needs on hand at all times. They’re great for between-bath clean-ups and getting rid of grime and dirt from the dog park. We like Hepper’s Pet Wash Wipes as they’re infused with natural and moisturizing ingredients to not interfere with a dog’s sensitive skin. They have a lovely cucumber and aloe scent to leave your friend’s dog smelling fresh and clean, no matter what kind of trouble they get themselves into. Each container comes with 30 wipes.

4. Cable-Knitted Sweater

Cable-Knitted Sweater new

Winter is cold and downright frigid in some areas of the world, and it’s only fair to provide a layer of warmth to our pets when we’re huddled under heated blankets all season long. The cable-knitted sweater from Frisco is a fantastic option for the dog mom on your list, as it’s super soft, easy to put on, and available in sizes to suit nearly every breed.

5. Subscription Box

Barkbox Subscription

BarkBox is a dog-friendly subscription box you can arrange to have delivered to your friend’s house as a one-off or as often as you like. Each box features a new, fun theme and will contain plush toys and healthy treats.

6. Food Subscription

The Farmer's Dog Fresh Chicken Subscription

If you truly want to spoil your friend’s dog this holiday season, you might consider signing them up for a dog food delivery service. We recommend The Farmer’s Dog as the company is very focused on crafting high-quality, fresh meals made to exceed AAFCO standards.

Of course, you may want to check with your friend before buying them these meals as they need to be refrigerated, and all dietary changes should be okayed by their veterinarian first. Additionally, you’ll want to confirm with your friend that they have the funds to continue with the subscription unless you plan to continue to buy their dog’s food.

Cozy Gifts for Mom

7. Custom Shirt

MintedGiftShop Custom Dog Tour Shirt new

If your friend is a dog lover and a Swiftie, you need to get her this “Dog’s Version” shirt from MintedGiftShop on Etsy. It looks just like the Taylor Swift Era’s Tour shirt, which is available online and at Taylor’s concerts, except it features pictures of your friend’s dog instead of Ms. Swift herself. The shirt is available in numerous sizes, styles, and colors and is customizable with ten or more photos of your friend’s pet.

8. Funny Custom Blanket

Crown & Paw Custom Pet Blanket new

Throw blankets are always a great Christmas gift as they’re functional and stylish. Instead of buying any old throw from your local department store, up the ante with a funny custom dog blanket from Crown & Paw. There are many styles to choose from, each as silly as the last. So, if you know your friend would love a blanket featuring her dog’s heads superimposed onto the heads of the American Gothic painting, Crown & Paw has you covered.

9. Cute Custom Blanket

ModPawsUS Custom Pet Blanket new

Not everyone will like the style of Crown & Paw’s funny blankets, so for those folks, we have these custom pet blankets from Etsy seller ModPawsUS. You’ll choose a fabric type, size, blanket color, and how many pets you’d like on the blanket. The seller provides proofs for every product before printing them, so you’ll have the final say in what you want it to look like.

10. Custom Pajamas

Petsies Custom Pajamas new

Petsies is a fantastic company specializing in custom pet décor and gifts. We’re particularly fond of their custom pajamas featuring your pet’s face. You can choose from short or long pajamas and between many design styles such as “boho rainbow” or “plaid.” If your friend has two dogs, Petsies will put both of their faces on the pajamas for an extra fee. The PJs come in sizes from small to 3XL, so there’s a size for nearly everybody.

11. Custom Socks

The Sock Bar Dog Socks new

You can never have too many products emblazoned with your pet’s likeness, and these custom dog socks are just another item to add to that list. The Sock Bar has 18 different style options for you to choose from, so finding a design that suits your friend’s style and color preference should be pretty easy. The socks can have up to four different pets on each pair, and you’ll get to decide whether you want just their face or their full body on the final product.

12. Pet-Friendly Candle

Pet House Candle  new

Just because your friend has pets doesn’t mean she can’t burn candles in her home. However, many candles on the market are made with poor-quality ingredients that could do more harm to her dogs than good. That isn’t the case with Pet House Candles, though. These 100% plant-based wax candles are non-toxic, eco-friendly, and totally lovely smelling.

Functional Gifts

13. Custom Dog Mug

Cuddle Clones Custom Pet Art Mug new

Whether your friend is a coffee drinker or prefers tea or hot cocoa, everyone needs a good quality mug. The Cuddle Clones custom mug is a beautiful option featuring your friend’s dog’s likeness. You can choose between an 11- or 15-ounce mug and several background images. Perhaps the best thing about this gift is that it’s both microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

14. Umbrella

Uncommon Goods Dog Breed Umbrella new

Even though it’s Christmastime, you know that spring is right around the corner, and with it comes plenty of rain. For protection against these springtime showers, your dog-loving best friend might love this dog silhouette umbrella. You can choose from several of the most popular dog breeds, like Golden Retrievers, Dachshunds, and Poodles.

15. Leash Holder

Callie Personalized Dog Leash Holder new

Your friend needs a stylish place to store her pup’s leash, and it doesn’t get much more beautiful than this stylish holder from Callie. The holder comes in two board colors and four font color options. It’s outfitted with a cute dog head and ear design based on your friend’s dog’s breed. There’s a list of 130 different breeds to choose from, so we’re certain hers will be available.

16. DNA Test

Wisdom Panel Dog DNA Test new

Is your friend’s dog a rescue? Is she not quite sure about her pup’s history? A doggy DNA test can provide valuable insight into her pup’s health and traits, as well as a deep look into their DNA. The Wisdom Panel DNA kit tests for over 365 breeds and 25+ health conditions.

17. Dog Treat Maker

Dash Mini Dog Treat Maker new

If your friend wants only the best and healthiest snacks for her pup, the Dash Mini Dog Treat Maker will surely be a hit for her. With this appliance, she can whip up easy, healthy dog treats with unprocessed ingredients she probably already has in her home. It comes with a recipe book, too, so she can get started making treats for her pup right away.

Keepsake Gifts

18. Journal

My Adorable Dog_ A Journal & Keepsake Book new

New parents keep journals after their babies are born, so there’s no reason why your friend can’t keep one about her dog. The My Adorable Dog: A Journal & Keepsake Book is a baby book spin-off and a one-of-a-kind guided journal to help your friend document special moments with her pup.

19. Ornament Kit

Baby Mushroom Store Ultimate Paw Print Keepsake Kit new

Paw print ornaments are a beautiful way to get pets involved in the holiday spirit. This paw print keepsake kit comes with everything your friend will need to make impressions of her pet’s paws, plus there’s enough clay to make two prints. Since no mixing or baking is required, this project is super easy, even for people who don’t consider themselves crafty.

20. Custom Portrait

CaitCustom Watercolor Pet Portrait new

Your dog mom’s bestie will probably love having a beautiful watercolor portrait of her pet to display in her home. This custom portrait from Etsy seller CaitCustom is a fantastic option from a highly-rated seller. They offer several material options, including shadowbox canvases, mounted canvases, framed prints, and paper prints. You can even buy the digital version to print on whatever medium you prefer.

I personally bought a digital print from this seller a few years ago when my parent’s Toy Poodle passed away. I sent it to Costco to have it printed on an aluminum canvas, and it came out clear, bright, and even more beautiful than expected.

21. Necklace

LittlePawPrintON Engraved Pet Necklace  new

These beautiful sketch-style custom dog necklaces from Etsy seller LittlePawPrintON come in three material options: silver, rose gold, and gold. You can choose between one or two coins per necklace, so if your friend has more than one dog, both can be inscribed on her necklace. Her pet’s pictures will be laser engraved on the coin, and their names can be put on the back, too.
