If you’re like me, you’re racing around last minute to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift! I’m a procrastinator, and now I’ll probably have to spend more money to ship the gift to Mom in Colorado, than I spent on the gift itself!

However, I really enjoy shopping for presents for people I love. And, in all honesty, I love receiving presents as much as giving them! Who doesn’t? So, along comes Mothers’ Day, but I’m not a mom in the traditional sense. We have no human children, but I’m certainly a Mom to my dog, two cats and two miniature donkeys. That surely counts.

My husband is well trained, and on most gift giving occasions he’ll surprises me with a cute card from Chilly and the cats. Sometimes a gift too! As a matter of fact, I saw a really cool piece of art last weekend and I said to him “Wow, maybe Chilly will get that for me for Mother’s Day!”. He got the hint☺

There are millions of pet moms and dads out there that should be celebrated, because pet parenting requires a lot of love, time, responsibility, and dollars! What we receive in return is certainly worth it, but it’s also fun to be the recipient of a gift from the pets on Mother’s Day (or Father’s Day).

Here are some of my favorite gift ideas for the deserving Pet Mom in your critter’s life. By the way, I have all of these items, and have not been paid to recommend them. I just think they are the bees knees!
