Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8th, so there’s still time to find a thoughtful gift for your mom to honor her special day. And while your mom never wants you to spend money on gifts for her, moms with dogs and those with beloved granddogs will enjoy a surprise that speaks to their doggie devotion.
Read on for Woof Report’s top gift picks for Mother’s Day and check out the links further below to find more gift ideas. As always, Woof Report product picks are handpicked and not advertisements.
Create custom notepads featuring your mom’s not-so-secret admirer, her dog or granddog! Visit PinholePress.com and upload a photo of your choice, and it will appear in full-color on the notepad cover and on the bottom of every sheet. Your mom’s name can be included at the top of each sheet too, $12.99 per 50-page pad.
Eat chocolate to help dogs and cats? Yessssss. Indulge your mom with delicious Rescue Chocolate, and 100% of the net profits are donated to animal rescue organizations around the country. Another plus, the packaging of each flavor of Rescue Chocolate sheds light on a different aspect of the current pet overpopulation epidemic. If that’s not enough, the chocolate is vegan, kosher, and made in the finest Belgian tradition, $5 per bar.
With the help of Blurb.com, create your own bookstore-quality books using photos of your mom’s dog or granddog (and even sneak in a few photos of non-fur family members). Choose from seven book sizes, pick a hardcover or softcover, then upload photos, add optional text, and send off a one-of-a-kind book your mom will cherish. Prices start at $12.95.
Celebrate your dog’s good looks with a frame that sets off his fur. Just visit SendAFrame.com, choose from hundreds of frames in all styles and sizes, then upload a photo and even engrave the frame and have it sent directly to mom, fuzzy mug shot included. Prices start at around $9. (Search for ‘personalized’ frames to find those that can be sent with a photo).
Honor mom’s generous spirit with a donation to an animal shelter or rescue in her honor. If you’re not sure which to choose, consider Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, where your donation of $25 includes a free subscription to Best Friends magazine and its heartwarming stories of the abandoned animals the organization serves.
The Gift of Time, its mom’s most treasured commodity, and it’s free for you. Wrap up a custom-made coupon for dog washes or grooming, dog walking or dog sitting, or even a photo shoot. Your bonus: extra doggie love and your mom’s appreciation.
Dog moms will love this whimsical Handmade Glass Dog Vase, which can hold flowers, pencils and more – and easily brighten a room. Individually hand blown and made in Italy, these one of a kind pups are a steal – discontinued and originally $56, they’re now $19.99 while supplies last.
Any mom who’s a feline fan will delight in these charming Meow for Measuring Cups. Complete with tiny paws and curved tail handles, they’re too cute to pass up, $34.99 per set.
