Mother’s Day gift ideas for pet owners

Get inspired with our ideas for pet-friendly gifts to buy the mother who's a devoted pet-parent!

21st March 2022

With Mother’s Day fast approaching you might be looking for the purr-fect gift for a fur-mama in your life. They’re the pooper scoopers, dog walkers, personal chefs, ball throwers, treat dispensers and everything else in between.

To celebrate all the cat and dog mums that deserve a treat for their fabulous pet parenting, we take a look at some of the gifts you could buy a special pet parent in your life.


With a wide selection of pet-friendly accommodation on offer, giving an Airbnb voucher or gifting a short break means that furry friends can join in on the fun, too! From yurts hidden away in the woods to cottages on the coast, there’s something for everyone when it comes to getting away.

Coffee gift card

While some coffee shops don’t allow dogs inside, you can still sit outside with your pooch on a spring afternoon after a dog walk! Or why not take a drink to take out, instead? Whatever your plans, a coffee gift card can make the perfect present this Mother’s Day.

Donate to a charity

If they have everything they need, why not make a donation in their name? Maybe they have a favourite animal they’d love to help or would like to support a local centre. No amount is too small when it comes to giving this thoughtful gift.


With options for mum and pet, you’ll be able to spoil both with Joules. They offer all sorts from clothes to the must-have accessories for humans and pooches alike! If you’re not sure on what to buy, they offer gift cards for those trickier buys.

Marks and Spencer

With an M&S voucher you could buy anything from a meal for two, some chocolate (keep these away from snouts and paws) or a bouquet of flowers (make sure they’re not toxic for pets!). Or why not surprise them to all three?

National Trust voucher

You could treat her to a nice walk at one of your local (or nearest) National Trust houses or estates. With plenty dotted around the country, find the perfect dog walk to enjoy celebrating the day with your pet parent.

Pet attire

We’re not talking clothes for your pet… we’re talking your pet on clothes. Dogsy lets you put your cat or dog on anything from t-shirts to socks, turning boring clothes to the most amazing gifts while giving owners the chance to show off their best friend.

Pet portrait

Why not turn their pet into a work of art with Purr and Mutt? With designs to match their furry friend's one of a kind personality, you’ll be able to choose from members of royalty to TV and movie characters or opt for a more minimalist print. Whichever portrait you decide, they’re sure to be proud to hang their new art on any wall in the house.

Spotify subscription

Buying your pet parent a Spotify subscription will let them create a personalised playlist for their pooch or feline friend! With 8 in 10 people believing their pets like music, this could make the perfect give this Mother’s Day and give them something fun to do with their furry companion.


Gift a book. Or two! From storybooks to novels, you’ll be able to find the perfect doggy tails or feline fiction for your recipient from their furry friend. Many Waterstones actually sell wrapping paper and a selection of cards which makes them the perfect one-shop stop this Mother’s Day.
