Whether mum is sporty, a budding adventurer or gardener, has an eye for fashion, art or home design or is a rescue supporter, here are our top picks to ensure this year's present is one she will treasure for years to come. 

Born out of a love for creating with polymer clay and an affinity with pets, Dani from Pawfect Love sculpts with heart to enable pets to be with you through fun and unique everyday accessories. 

Pawfect Love

Jenny Mack has always been passionate about art; she is a talented Australian pet portrait artist specialising in realistic soft pastel paintings. Inspired by her love of animals, she takes commissions internationally from clients wanting bespoke portraits of their beloved pets, wildlife or landscapes.

She always works from photos to achieve a good likeness and capture your animal’s personality and will ideally require 3 or 4 good quality reference images if possible. 
It's worth enquiring if you have any doubts though, as Jenny is sometimes able to work from lesser quality photos.

A priceless present for a dog mum is a pastel painting of her beloved pet in a realistic, personality-filled style that she will be proud to have in her home and treasure for many years to come!

A reflection of the quality of her work, the turnaround is approximately 3-4 weeks for a single pet portrait in pastel so book early to avoid disappointment!
