How To Spoil The Dog Mom in Your Life

May 8, 2019

Dog Mom’s Day is almost here! This special holiday is celebrated each year on the second Saturday of May. Our friends Casey and Leigh Isaacson of Dig Dates actually submitted Dog Mom’s Day to The National Day Calendar last year and were approved, so you know it’s legit!

As with any fun holiday, the perfect gift can really set the day apart. Here’s our list of perfect gifts to buy the Dog Mom in your life. Remember, our furry friends can’t buy gifts for us either so picking out a gift for yourself is completely acceptable to do!

Our favorites:

We recently found a shop on Etsy called HitherRabbit that creates amazing handpainted dog items. Our favorite is this tote bag that is actually handpainted and then printed to resemble your pup. The bag is a soft and durable 100% cotton canvas and is made with eco-friendly inks. We love that this bag has long straps so you can comfortably wear it over your shoulder.


This splurge-worthy item comes from our friend at Cuddle Clones. 

For $199 you can get slippers made the look exactly like your dog. These slippers are handmade and will look exactly like your pet. They are simply AMAZING! Cuddles Clones also has a number of other products like golf club head covers and even purses too.


Sequin pillows are popping up all over the place, from dorm rooms to living rooms. This sequin cushion from Pawlibra has a solid color on one side that changes with the brush of your hand to a photo of your dog! For only $19.99 you’re going to want to get one for every room of your house!


Paying homage to the classic idea of friendship bracelets, Friendship Collars is a company that creates matching collars and bracelets for you and your pup to wear! They even have a collection on their site of Dog Mom sets and are offering 20% off with code DOGMOM.

We recently received The Mucky Pup pattern and are absolutely obsessed.

We’ve been wearing our matching collar and bracelet non-stop. Some of our other favorite patterns are:

The Great British Canine

and The Classic Pup: Arancia


Now it's time for some cuddly lounge clothes! We also can’t say enough about these super soft muscle T’s from I’d Rather be with my Dog.

We think it is the perfect shirt for snuggling on the couch watching a movie with your pup or for going for a nice run. You can even add a matching Doggie Bandana to gift your dog with something stylish of their own.


Last but not least is a great company called Pop Your Pup. There offer so many different products all featuring your furbaby. Our favorite item has to be this custom beach towel with your dog’s face on it!
