Our Top Five Dog Mom Gift Ideas

Updated: Dec 30, 2020

I have scoured through Instagram, Etsy, and Pinterest to find some of the best custom dog gift ideas that are not only unique, but also support a greater cause - keeping our small businesses alive and thriving.

Check out our top five dog mom gift ideas for 2020!

Ruff Gems Custom Order Frosted Teardrop and Snowflake Necklaces

Looking for personalized dog gift ideas? I highly recommend checking out Ruff Gems, a new dog tag shop that launched on Etsy in 2020. Ruff Gems offers handmade crystal and gemstone resin dog tags with a large variety of high quality stones and designs to choose from.

One of my favorite new designs is the Frosted Teardrop Monogram Charm, pictured below.

Pure sophistication!

This timeless design is now also available in an 18 inch necklace, perfect for dog moms, and, as with the majority of the dog charms, is completely customizable.


Customization Options:

1. Hardware: The hardware is available in bronze, silver, and gold.

2. Stone: There are numerous stone options including Rose Quartz, Spessatrine Garnet (as pictured above), Jade, Blue Lace Agate, and many more.

3. Font: You can choose to print your letter (match your dog or choose a different letter) from one of the five different Monogram Font Options.


If you love this look, but are looking to include a full name on a necklace, then check out the Personalized Blue Calcite Crystal & Resin Snowflake Necklace, charm pictured below.

Bubbles Choice Custom Reusable Totes

Looking for the cutest dog gift ideas? Bubbles Choice has adorable reusable tote bags that are perfect for the dog park, beach, or shopping.

The customization options on these totes are endless. You can choose from a variety of ready-made dog quotes (e.g., "All I need is coffee & canine kisses", "Live, Love, Bark", or "Life is Golden with a Doodle") and breed specific options like the "Long Haired Dachshund Mom" pictured above. What is really cool though, is that if you have something specific in mind, you can email Bubbles Choice to see if they can make it for you. I sent in a request to have a bag say "Bailey's Outfits" (see above), and was thrilled when they were able to design this for me.

These totes are 100% cotton twill with soft web handles. To protect the vinyl, these totes should be washed on a cold, gentle setting or hand washed and air dried. Bags come in natural canvas, navy canvas, and heavy cotton denim and are priced at $23, which includes the price of customization (even special requests).

Galaxy Paw Original Custom Pet Art

Looking for dog photo gift ideas? Galaxy Paw has lots of fun custom digital art options to turn your dog's photo into a work of art.

My absolute favorite is the custom watercolor flower pet portrait. I purchased this photo and had it printed on canvas and it is just darling.

This is a beautiful watercolor boho design that features the bust portrait of your pet. It is delivered in a digital file format where you can then have it printed on canvas or any other medium. The digital file is $68 and takes approximately 12 days to deliver.

If this, however, is outside your budget consider a custom one line pet portrait! This option is currently on sale for $20 and takes less than 5 days for the digital file to be delivered. I had one done of Bentley and is a perfect representation of him.
