Who runs the world? DOG MOMS.
We spend so much time pawmpering our pups, that we deserve presents too. Treat yo’self is a well known phrase for a reason - it’s really important!! The holidays can be such a stressor for people, so I’m all for treating yourself to something you want for Christmukkah too.
Check out 9 gifts that I’m buying for myself and my dog mom friends!!
Top 9 gifts for the dog mom under $100:
Dog mom AF beanie by Ripley + Rue $24.99: a beanie is the perfect, affordable gift for the holiday season, and there’s no cuter way to rep being a proud dog momma than this Ripley + Rue beanie! The little pompom on top is just icing on a perfect little beanie cake.
Doodle buttons by Bridget Doodles Dogs $22: who doesn’t love Bridget Doodles Dogs? Her doodles are always so on point! When she started offering these buttons I jumped on them immediately. She doodled Watson back in the day for a Game of Thrones as Poddrick (isn’t he soooo Poddrick too?) so it was really affordable to get these buttons. She’ll doodle your dog if she hasn’t before for an additional fee! PS: I wore this button on the Price is Right :)
Pawfect Paintings Custom Ornament $54: my friend Kim, the lovely Sheepish Addie’s mom, got me this for Christmas last year and I honestly cried a little when I opened it. It sits proudly front and center on our tree!
Matching palm leaf shirt for mom & dad (& dad too!) by Shop Dog Threads $68+: you know #twinningiswinning and Watson and I love to be matchy matchy! If you want to show off your twinning style, the extensive line of matching sets from Shop Dog Threads is the way to go. The Palm Leaf pattern is my favorite, but you can’t go wrong with any of them!
Urbanears Pink Headphones $99: when you buy your dog “pizza” (see my gift guide for pets here!) you’re going to need good headphones to drown out the noise. I couldn’t recommend my Urbanears wireless more! Plus they come in pink.
Matching Leggings / Bandana set by Ripley + Rue $56.99: like I said, we looove to match! And I think this cozy matching set takes the cake. Something both Watson and I would really wear! I mean, Ripley + Rue just gets me.
Bichon frise phone case by Casetify $39: until I recently switched to the Pixel 3 (#teampixel sorry not sorry) this was my phone case for years. The bichon pattern looks so much like Watson!! They have a ton of dog case options if bichons aren’t your thing though ;). And the bumper around the phone protects the phone so well!
Dog Mom mug by Shop Bark YYC $21 CAD ($15 USD + transaction fee): I use this mug almost every morning!! It’s so cute and makes me smile every time I sip.
Lifelike Pet Pillow $49.95: the first contest I ever won on Instagram was this LiLiPi pillow, and it’s still my favorite. I travel EVERYWHERE with this pillow (unless real Watson is with me) and I always get stopped to talk about it. No joke. It’s also the perfect shape for falling asleep on a plane. Check out the amazing picture below of me with WP (Watson Pillow’s nickname) in the Bahamas last year - my coworkers thought this was actually Watson when I first sent them the pictures!
