Mother’s Day is the perfect time for researching gifts for pet parents. If your mum (or dad for that matter) happens to count their pet as another kid, then buying something dog or cat related is a clever idea for a gift. They’ll love that you’re recognising and sharing in the joy of how much they love their pet.

Now might be a good time to treat yourself as well. Sshhh… we won’t tell anyone.

Here are some great gifts for pet parents this Mother’s Day.

Gifts for pet parents: Say it with a shirt

We love the idea of a printed T-shirt you can completely personalise. This shop by Etsy has you send a pet picture and their name, which they turn it into an extremely awesome shirt like this one:

Furriends.com offers other customisable options, like inserting the pet’s breed into a shirt like this:

If personalised is not what you’re looking for, there are some other fun Furriends.com options:

Or this cute cat shirt, also on Etsy:

Pet portraits

If you think they’d rather frame their love than wear it, pet portraits may be the way to go. We love this idea because there are so many different art styles and ways to go about it that you can get something beautiful and unique. 

This’ll make a beautiful surprise for any pet parent, and you can get as creative as you like with it. From different poses, outfits, art styles, colours, paint or graphic design ideas and more – you can really make it special.

Check out Next Gen Paws, Paint My Pooch or Themy Wall Art for amazing pet portrait options.

Gifts for pet parents: A photoshoot

If you’ve ever gone into the archive of photo albums from your childhood, you know there’s something magical about revisiting old memories in the form of photos. They hold a dear place in your heart and the thing that makes them so special is they’re irreplaceable. 

Add a new chapter to the photo album with a pet photo shoot. You can either book it for your mum or give her a voucher so she can book it themselves. These shoots by pet photographer Erin King might be just up your ally.

Or, if you’re feeling REALLY creative, you could offer to do the shoot yourself! For that, read our cat and dog photography guide. It’s for Easter, but the majority of the tips in it will work for any shoot.

Say it with a sticker

Some people find great happiness in collecting things, and perhaps you could either add to their bumper sticker collection or help them start one?

A cute custom pet sticker saying “I love my dog/cat”, or a picture of their favourite fluffball is an awesome idea for a gift for a pet parent. Peeler Stickers offer plentiful options; there’s definitely going to be a sticker gift for every pet parent.

Print your pup or purr friend

We’ve already mentioned T-shirts and stickers, but the objects you can print their image on are endless!

How about a fridge magnet by Zazzle, phone case by Paint My Pooch or a mug by My Photo Mugs? It’s a constant reminder of their favourite furball and doubles as a friendly reminder that you love them as well.

Fun, simple, cheap and easy, we love this idea as a gift for pet parents.

The ultimate gifts for pet parents: Pet insurance

Here’s a gift that won’t chip, stain or tear. A gift that could save a life.

Why not sign up your mum’s pet for pet insurance and pay for a portion of it?

With pet insurance, the pet parent in your life will know that their dog or cat is covered in case of emergency – something that we think tops it all. Get a free quote today.
