Make Your Mom’s Christmas Extra Special 

When the holidays come around, it’s the perfect time to make the most important people in your life feel special. Your mom is certainly no exception. In the midst of holiday festivities, it’s a great idea to take time to celebrate your mom with a meaningful gift this year. She’ll feel loved, and you’ll get to enjoy the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes with making someone special to you happy.

Knowing where to start when it comes to Christmas presents for your mom is often tough. As people get older, they tend to have less specific wishes when the holidays come around. Your mom would likely tell you that she is content to get to spend some quality time with you and the rest of the family this holiday season, and that no gifts are necessary. While this may be true, you know deep down that she’ll be glad if you get her something that she loves. The challenge is figuring out what your mom loves most.

One thing that you can know for sure is this: if your mom has a pet, it holds a special place in her heart. That makes your mom’s pet the perfect subject matter for your Christmas gift to her this year. There’s plenty of great options for pet-themed gifts, and they mean a lot to the pet lovers you give them to. Giving a pet-themed gift makes sure that your mom’s furry friend doesn’t get overlooked this holiday season. After all, they’re a valued part of the family and a big part of your mom’s life. If you grew up with that same pet, they certainly have a special place in your heart, too! This makes it all the more worthwhile to give a gift to your mom that includes her pet.

In this article, we’ll cover some of the most meaningful gift ideas that are sure to make your mom feel extra special this holiday season. There’s something for everyone here, from the crazy cat ladies to the dog moms and bird lovers. When giving a gift to your mom, you want to especially make sure that she knows how much she matters to you and the rest of your family. If your mom has a pet that she loves, that furry friend of hers makes the perfect basis for a great holiday gift!



What do you get for the mom who loves her cat?

If your mom is a diehard cat lover, you can make her holidays extra special by getting her something that celebrates the unbreakable bond between her and her favorite feline. At Crown & Paw, we know as well as any cat-loving mom how great owning a cat can be. Cats are loyal, level-headed, clever beasts, always willing to stay by your side and quietly keep you company. They’re low-maintenance, too, perfect for the moms who need to be out of the house getting things done throughout the day.

For the cat-loving moms out there, Crown & Paw has something that’s bound to get some big smiles and laughs from your mom and the rest of your family – an expertly painted cat portrait. Unlike their often-goofy canine counterparts, cats tend to have an air of class and regality. Maybe it’s because they’re quiet, maybe it’s because they sit and stare at you and give you those looks that only a cat can. Whatever that je ne sais paw might be, it gives a cat the perfect look for a renaissance-style portrait.

Crown & Paw’s talented artists are pros at capturing the likeness of a cat and adding its perfectly replicated face an eye-catching, conversation-starting design. For cats, with their air of sophistication, the aristocratic look of a renaissance-style portrait pairs perfectly with their feline features. Your mom is sure to love the adorable combination of classy, regal attire with the face of her cat.

What about the dog moms out there?

For the mom who adores her dog, Crown & Paw has something perfect. With an abundance of designs for dog portraits, your mom will end up with a sweet, display-ready gift that reminds her of her favorite furry friend.

If your mom loves her dog and also enjoys a daily cup of coffee or tea, she’s in luck – her dog’s adorable portrait can come printed on a mug! This way, she can stay cozy cuddling up with her pooch and drinking her favorite hot drink out of a mug with the pup’s sweet face on it.

One of the best winter activities to do inside is a relaxing puzzle, hands down. When you’re looking for something to give to your mom this holiday season, a puzzle might come to mind, but you can do better than just any puzzle. For your dog-loving mom, why not grab a puzzle from Crown & Paw that, when assembled, shows an adorable portrait of mom’s favorite pooch? It’s the perfect gift for those quiet winter days.

Grab your mom a pet-themed phone case 

Older generations are often mystified by technology, including the smartphones they carry in their pockets from day to day. It certainly makes sense – to grow up without something and then have it become an integral part of your life is jarring, to be sure. Seeing your parents use their smartphones is often a little bit like watching a cat play with a laser pointer. The cat is fascinated by the nifty little dot, trying to get a handle on it but overwhelmed by how magical it seems.

If your mom is a smartphone user and is still getting used to technology that she didn’t grow up with, you can make things a little more fun for her by getting her a case for her phone that features the likeness of her pet! A pet portrait phone case is a great gift when you want to get something smaller for your mom, but still want to make sure she feels valued and appreciated this Christmas. Just make sure to answer all her tech-related questions, even if they seem simple to you!

When you give a gift to your mom, always, always write a note 

As great as a portrait of your mom’s pet is, it won’t be complete without a thoughtful note. Giving a meaningful gift is a great way to spark joy, and it becomes even more special when you write something kind to go along with it. Use your card as an opportunity to let your mom know how much she means to you. You can even add some cute pet-related puns if you’re feeling a little silly (“You’re PAWsome, mom!”). Your mom will definitely appreciate the extra thought and intentionality you put in when you write a card.

Writing a thoughtful card will take your gift to the next level. When you really want to make your mom feel special, giving her some affirming words is always a good idea. A picture is worth a thousand words, though, as the old saying goes. And when it comes to giving the gift of a pet portrait, that old saying seems to be true!

No matter what you give your mom this holiday season, take the opportunity to let her know that you love and appreciate her (and her pets, too!) Ultimately, the gifts given and received at the holidays are just a bonus on top of getting to spend time with friends and family.
