There’s never a wrong time to get a gift to celebrate your mom. Mother’s Day or not, it’s always a good idea to show her how much she means to you — if she’s a dog-loving mom, even better. We conferred with the product experts at AKC Shop to compile the very best dog-themed gifts for mothers. From microfleece robes for lounging to hand printed “whine” coolers for chilling vino, here are our top picks.

Best Wearable Dog-Inspired Gifts

Breed-Specific Plush Microfleece Robe

This soft microfleece robe will keep your mom warm and cozy all day long — plus, she’ll be able to show off her favorite breed. With two pockets and a fabric belt, mom can lounge on the couch with her dog and still carry around the essentials (including dog treats, of course). Verified customer reviews say this robe is super comfortable and “holds up to dogs jumping on you.” Other reviews comment on the high-quality of the embroidery and how the dog on the robe looks just like their own. One buyer said the sleeves were a bit long, but overall the robe was still warm, fuzzy, and very easy to wash. This plush robe is available in three colors: Deep Smoke (shown above), Pink Raspberry, or Marshmallow and two sizes: Small/Medium and Large/X-Large. Embroidered in the USA, your mom can choose from over 100 different breeds, dogs from Affenpinscher to Yorkshire Terrier. Price: $69.99.

Breed-Specific Earrings

Many moms love receiving jewelry especially if it celebrates her favorite breed. These earrings are handmade in the USA from recycled sterling silver, so not only are they adorable, but they’re eco-friendly too. You can choose from different earring styles: French hooks or dangle posts, as well as numerous breeds and designs. Some earrings feature just the head of the dog, like the Pembroke Welsh Corgi earrings pictured here, or the entire body. Happy buyers say these earrings are “perfect” and “very high-quality.”

If your mom isn’t an earring person, don’t worry — the AKC Shop has a broad selection of dog jewelry. Starting price for sterling silver earrings: $30.40.

The quartz clock is battery powered, and the dog figurine is hand-painted. Your mom will love to add a little dog to her space with this crafty clock. Plus, she’ll always be able to tell the time.

Breed-Specific Slate Sign

With this gift, mom won’t have to remind you to wipe your feet. Moms will love this slate sign, decorated with her favorite breed (over 100 available). To make it even more fun, you can choose from one of five scenic backgrounds. Show your mom’s favorite breed in the mountains, the beach, the lake, a field or the yard. The leather strap attached makes it easy to hang this sign anywhere. Purchasers say these signs are gorgeous, high quality, and look just like the breed. One thing to keep in mind, however, these stone signs are heavy. Make sure you pick a sturdy place to hang them. Price: $49.99.

Best Custom Dog Gifts

Hand-Painted “Whine” Cooler

Your mom will never drink warm wine again — not after you get her this dog-themed gift. These hand-painted “whine” coolers give your mom the ability to store a 750ml bottle of her favorite wine. Kiln-fired and glazed, the clay keeps the temperature of the bottle inside from rising. Customize this wine cooler for your mom, with her favorite breed, plus coat color and cut. She’ll think she’s looking at a painted replica of her own pup. Happy reviewers comment on “how great” this cooler looks. Price: $64.99.

Hand-Painted Personalized Treat Jar

Choose the number of dogs, 1-2 or 3-5, specify the dogs’ names, and even add a personalized message. Your mom can use the jar to store dog treats, human snacks, or keep it as a decorative piece. Buyers of this personalized gift love the quality of both the jar and the artwork. These reviewers say the jars are “professionally done” and “beautiful.” Price: $250.
