The holiday season is upon us, and that means many of us are still scurrying around trying to find last-minute gifts for our loved ones. Wag! knows how much pets mean to their people and how difficult it can be to shop for a dog mom that has everything. Don't worry, though — we've got you!

We've scoured the internet in search of the 10 best holiday gifts for dog moms to make sure your present is a hit. Below are the "mutts-haves" for the dog mom in your life.

Erin Condren Pet Planner

Help the mutt mama in your life start the new year on the right paw with the Erin Condren Pet Planner! Complete with a pet food tracker, vet visit log, plenty of blank pages, and super cute stickers, this pet planner is a "furrific" gift for crafty dog moms. (We should know — we gave one away to one lucky pet parent in September 2022!)

Rescued Wine candles

Rescued Wine Candles is a home fragrance company with a greater purpose. Not only are these wine-scented candles adorable and smell fantastic, but proceeds from every sale benefit dog rescues like K9s 4 Keeps, Pawsitive Ohio, and the Fetching Tails Foundation.

These candles are also eco-friendly — they're made from recycled wine bottles and paper. We hear all the candles are amazing, but customers absolutely rave about the champagne-scented soy candle.

Custom dog leash hanger

Dog leashes are a pet parent essential, but they can really clutter a space if you don't have a designated place to store them. A custom dog leash holder will prevent leashes from getting tangled and look great on your friend's wall. There are tons of custom dog leash hangers available on Etsy, but our favorite is this one by Roots Home Designs (pictured above).

Furbo Nanny Cam Bundle

The Furbo Dog Camera is, paws down, the hottest tech gift for pet parents on the market right now. The Furbo Nanny Cam Bundle ensures your friend has access to all of its "pawsome" features.

This bundle includes all the standard Furbo accessories, like a doggy webcam, two-way audio, and treat dispenser, as well as emergency features that can alert pet parents of sirens, security system alarms, intruders, and breaking glass.

Engraved pet photo charm bracelet

Give your favorite dog mom a gift that allows them to take a piece of their pet with them wherever they go — an engraved pet photo charm bracelet! These bangles are made by Mignon & Mignon, an Etsy shop specializing in custom jewelry that's both hypoallergenic and tarnish-resistant. The bracelet is available in silver, gold, and rose gold finishes and can hold several custom charms for all your friend's fur-babies.

Embark Breed + Health Kit

If your favorite dog mom is in the dark about the heritage of her beloved mutt, an Embark dog DNA test is the "pawfect" present! These tests don't just offer insight into a dog's breed — they also reveal valuable genetic information, like what physical traits and health conditions run in the dog's family. For more information, check out our guide to dog DNA tests!

Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co. coffee sampler

What's better than a cup of hot coffee in the morning? A cup of hot coffee that gives back! Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co. believes in just that, giving 20% of all its profits to rescue organizations working to find loving families for homeless dogs. Besides its incredible mission, Grounds & Hounds has amazing fair-trade coffee, which is sustainably sourced and organic!

We recommend the Three Blend Starter Kit, which includes 3 of the company's most "pawpular" blends. You can even customize the starter kit to your friend's brewing preference, with whole bean, ground, and single-serve pod options available. Grounds & Hounds also offers gourmet hot cocoa samplers for people who don't like the strong stuff.

Dog stroller

This gift is for those dog moms with teeny weenie Chiweenies! Dog strollers are a safe and convenient way for pet parents to keep their pet with them at all times, and who doesn't want that?

We love the Paws & Pals EZ Walk 4 Wheel Pet Stroller because it's lightweight, stores compactly, and has zip-up mesh screens to keep your pet cool and prevent escape attempts. The best part? It's under $50!

GPS dog tracker collar attachment

GPS dog trackers are an invaluable tool for pet loss prevention, so why not give the gift of peace of mind to your favorite dog mom? The Whistle Go Explore tracks dogs with an impressive 15-second refresh rate and sends location and health alerts directly to the pet parent's phone.

This device also helps parents keep tabs on their pet's activity levels, sleep schedule, and behaviors to help parents identify health problems early on. The Whistle Go Explore is only approved for dogs weighing 25 pounds or more. If your friend has a smaller pet, consider the Cube Real Time GPS Dog and Cat Tracker.

Wag! gift card

Give your favorite dog mom a break from her daily duties with a Wag! gift card! She can use your gift to buy herself some doggy-free time or spend it on a training sesh to help her pooch sharpen their skills! That's not all either, Wag! Gift cards are redeemable for any  pet care services through Wag!, including:

Gift card amounts start as low as $25 (which is "pawlenty" to cover a walk!) — making this an inexpensive yet thoughtful holiday gift for every dog mom.
