From something as simple and affordable as a custom cookie cutter to a real splurge with diamond jewelry, here are a few suggestions for unique gifts to make Mother’s Day extra special for the Dog Mom you know and love. And while giving something custom made requires a bit of planning, we bet you’ll agree it’s worth it.

One glance at all the unique cookie cutters at Cookie Cutter Kingdom on Etsy and you’ll be preheating the oven and dreaming of cookies, cookies, cookies. For the dog parent, they make custom cookie cutters! That means paw shapes, dog shapes, and bone shapes with a word or name in the middle. Have fun with the customization ideas: Hungry? Sniffer? Humper? So many possibilities. All made from safe, food-grade plastic.

If you live near a Fred Meyer store, you can drool over these beautiful designs in person. If not, the PAWSitively Yours collection is all available to buy online. Their diamond paw print pendant is a classic, and every purchase from this collection triggers a donation to the Humane Society of the United States.

Let’s face it—if you appreciate creativity and beautiful artwork, there’s no way you’d allow your pup to actually use this as a toy. We prefer to think of these as fiber art. These Pridebites custom discs are an absolutely unique and adorable gift that is worth the wait. After you send your pup’s image, they’ll get started producing a beautiful, fuzzy fabric likeness on a sturdy yet soft disc.

We love that each of the wine glasses in this set of four offers a different bit of canine wisdom. Instead of wine glass charms, use these stemless glasses and each wine sipper will remember their glass by its unique canine wisdom. The classic paw print design ties them all together.

Sara Pulver’s distinctive, contemporary folksy style is easy to love. And when it comes to understanding the heart of our relationship with our dogs, she really gets it. Just take a look at her sweet illustration series of tiny people sleeping at the foot of the bed, while their large dog is sleeping under the covers (with his head on the pillow) —then you can commission 3 Crows (Sara’s Etsy shop) to create your own family illustration in a similar style.
