I’m being a good daughter this year — and saving myself a lot of last minute trouble — by not waiting until the Saturday before to pick out a gift for my mom. I got her something I know she’ll love, and it reminds me of the vacation we took together last summer.

My mom is actually pretty easy to shop for. She’s a big fan of rings, especially oversize ones, and she can generally use something practical for the dogs under my parent’s foster home rescue care. Of course, she’s also a fan of impractical things for dogs and dog decorations, so there are plenty of directions you can go.

I went with a mix of both practical and impractical gifts, but I tried to only pick out things we would both really like. I don’t think she’d be as excited about the mix-tape pattern collar as I am, but I hope she’d love the dog leash holder just as much. I love how bright and fun this one is, but I found some other, more subdued versions too.

Maybe if I get her a ring she really likes, she would let me put the bowtie on Jojo, my parents dachshund. He would look like such a gentleman!
