I used to HATE Valentine’s Day. As a young, single woman it was just another reminder that I was perpetually alone. I hated watching all the happy, beautiful couples gallivant around town, holding hands, exchanging kisses and love, and just generally rubbing their happiness into the rest of everyone else’s miserable faces. But then of course, I got a dog and Bean became my forever valentine. Now, I have a love to come home to every year.
And yes, it may just be a cheesy holiday invented by the card companies to make more money, but I can’t help but enjoy it now. It’s a cute and fun celebration that reminds me just how much love I’m blessed with. Since I’ve adopted Bean I’ve made it a tradition to make a big deal out of the holiday and to shower her with gifts, treats, and love-in the way only a dog mom can.
Of course, I know I wouldn’t mind receiving a gift or two, and the gifts that will always mean the most to me are the ones that remind me of the greatest joy in my life; my dog. Your dog mom just might feel the same.
So whether you’re celebrating with your friends, your family, the love of your life, or just your pet, if you’re in the market for some fun, here are some gift ideas for the dog mom in your life.
