With Christmas around the corner, for dog lovers, for your favourite dog mom (or dog dads!), you’re looking for the best gifts, right?
Well, that’s where I’m here for you, because cherishing your fur baby? Is something I totally get, and it’s something this Christmas gift guide is gonna celebrate with you.
I want to celebrate our four-legged friends and life with those furry boogers this holiday season, whether it’s making life with a dog easier? Or actually celebrating the fact that we are dog moms, and proud. These should be that thoughtful gift for that wonderful, deserving dog parent (and we’re going way further than the renaissance pet portrait – Yawn! I mean, I’m not putting that … on my walls and I wouldn’t suggest it for you).
I’ve either got first hand experience with all of these products, or second hand (e.g. if I’ve gifted them to another dog mama!)
Best Christmas Gifts For Dog Moms

House Proud Dog MomBRIIV Air FilterIt’s not a lie that dogs make our homes dirtier on an average day, than a home without a dog. The good news though, is that it doesn’t have to be that way! And one of the ways that I ensure that my home is as clean as possible, is to have an air filter. To me? They make a wonderful gift. Because I wouldn’t necessarily splurge on something like this for myself. Briiv is the most stylish air filter on the market – and heck yeah I’m gonna say that – and even better? It’s a really nice air filter that does really well with dog skin particles and it does it naturally. My favourite thing about being a dog mom is doing it as naturally as possible, and with reindeer moss, and with coconut fibre and carbon filtering, this air filter introduces nothing negative into my home.It definitely helps to keep my home clean and tidy (and healthy!) – and why wouldn’t that be a fantastic gift?

I hate giving ideas for dog moms that become gifts for their dog? Because sure, I can recommend snuffle mats, or pretty dog tags, or bully sticks, but that’s not for mom, right? Whether you’re celebrating being a new dog owners, or otherwise!
