This cat themed gift guide will help you choose the purrfect, sorry couldn't help it, cat gift for the cat lover in your life. Sometimes our minds are a blank (well often in my case) and it is super helpful to look at some fresh ideas.
Maybe you need to buy a gift for a co worker at the office. You know that he/she loves cats because the cat is an ad nauseum recurring topic of conversation but exactly what are you going to buy for that person?
Maybe it is a Secret Santa gift and in that case there is probably a spending limit. Often we think we know our co workers until we need to buy a gift and realize we know less than we thought.
We cat lovers do tend to get drawn to kitty cat things but if you are not a cat lover, cat things will not be on your radar.
Hang on, you may even turn into a cat lover.
Yes, I’m sure I heard you say that.
Well with so many cute cat things it would be worth it, I say.
Stocking stuffers are inexpensive and are a great small appreciation gift for a cat lover at any time of the year.
I find that stocking fillers or stocking stuffers actually take up a fair amount of my thinking and shopping time as I look for inexpensive items but items that are also useful, have a purpose or are fun because I’m not about wasting my money, even if it is a few dollars.
Because buying online has made shopping for gifts a whole lot easier, it is fun to browse and check out the very clever cat related ideas for gifts..
I love these bag clips, perfect for clipping kitties food pouch closed or any half finished packet for that matter.
I often seem to have half finished packets of all sorts of things and sometimes use pegs to keep packets closed.
These little kitty clips would be so handy and make a cute gift.
Just for some extra appeal, the clips actually make a meowing sound.
They are a decent size, 3 inches x 2.75 inches x 1.75 inches so there’s plenty of clipability.
This is a cute way to store Post It notes. I use so many Post It notes, I wish I had invented them.
I like the way that they are in a dispenser as my Post It notes are floating around my desk in no particular place.
It only takes one hand to pull the note from the dispenser. That’s handy!
There’s a little pop up button that keeps the notes in place even when the pad starts to get thin.
The cat is weighted so it won’t slide around when removing the Post It notes.
Cute with a capital C and top effort for good thinking.
This would be a great little gift for a co worker.
This is fun and although it doesn’t really fit my useful criteria it does fit the fun criteria.
Fun is useful too. I can justify anything really!
Great for an office gift for a co worker who loves cats.
There are twenty cards, each one has a funny cat picture and funny cat sayings.
It can be hard to buy for coworkers because you don’t really know their likes and dislikes.
A smile or laugh in the office is a great way to maintain balance or take the stress out of a situation.
Cat magnets are just plain fun but still fit the useful criteria.
Pardon the pun but I seem to be a bit of a magnet for fridge magnets and have quite a few already. I have some magnets that I have had for years. They are probably just about collector items.
Here are some cute cat magnets I found...
Now don't be thinking boring because they are always useful and perfect for a stocking stuffer. Plus, there's some really cool cat dish towels.
There's some more cat dish towels here now that I have convinced you that they are not boring.
Cat saying on t shirts are a funny thing because what I might find funny you might not and maybe I have a weird sense of humor. I'm okay with that.
There's also a good color choice because we like a choice, right! I have just chosen two to give you an idea. The fabric in these shirts is good quality.
I only use silicone rubber ice cube trays now because it is easier to get the cubes out of the tray compared to plastic trays and unlike plastic trays I don’t have to worry about the BPA aspect.
Once again perfect for a cat lover and another thing that you can never have too many of – ice cube trays. They seem to go missing and all turn up at once.
I don’t know why but ice cube trays have a habit of disappearing in our house, not quite as bad as socks but running a close second.
WongSinTong Women Large Canvas Handbag Tote Cat Printed Cute Shoulder BagOkay, I admit it, I want this! This is a very cute set. It is a cat themed without being over the top so understated cat elegance in a very cute tote.
Something I always look for in a tote is a zipper at the top because I like having the option of being able to zipper everything away from sight. I may not always use the zipper but it’s definitely something I look for.
I really love the coin purse because it has a strap which is super handy when you needs hands free, for more shopping.
I would probably put odds and ends in the coin purse, like tissues or lippy as I tend to just take my normal wallet with me when I go shopping.
Actually I am thinking this bag would be great to take to work because it is just the size to carry all those extra bits and pieces you need at work.
A really good buy and a stocking stuffer with a bit of class. Actually it would probably fill the stocking so there you go, all problems solved.
I think I could be wearing these snug slippers right now and have warm, toasty feet. These kitty cat slippers are pale blue but there's other colors available. Now if someone would just bring me a nice, hot cuppa, I will be fine for a couple of hours. A friend of mine slips her slippers into a tote when going to the movies.
I am a knitter but haven’t knitted a beanie like this. I must put it on my list.
It comes in lots of different colors and just seems to make everyone happy. If a beanie can do that, well it’s a good buy.
Plus don’t forget the usefulness of a beanie. You can never have too many beanies…bags…shoes…
These cute little kitty tea infusers are made from food grade silicone and just sit nicely over the rim of a cup or mug while the tea is brewing.
The bottom half pops off and this is filled with tea.
I am a tea drinker and probably have far too many cups, up to 7 or 8 cups a day in winter and just a few less in summer.
Tea infusers are great because you get the full flavour that only leaf tea can really supply.
Just leave it to brew for as long as you like.
I put the tea leaves in the kitchen compost so it’s a win win all round.
These little guys can be washed by hand or go in the dishwasher and they have a lifetime guarantee.
Pair this with a mug and some leaf tea for a nice gift.
I really had to look twice at this the first time I saw it. It is very clever and funny.
Give it someone who can laugh at themselves and have a bit of fun.
You know it is going to get a smile whenever it is used.
Just two cute, little kitty cat spoons.
They are also available in a set of 6, so a couple of options.
This would make a great stocking stuffer or office co worker gift. Just add some coffee or tea and a cup or mug. Bundle it all up with some clear cellophane tied with a nice ribbon and if you are feeling particularly good spirited a couple of chocolates wouldn’t go astray.
The spoons make it the standout and they definitely have the awwhhh factor! Everyone will love you.
I love, love, love these door stoppers.
We have quite a few doors that need door stoppers. That’s what happens when you live in a windy place.
I have got a wrought iron stopper but it’s awkward to move because it is heavy, as it should be but also quite small so I have to really get down to the floor to pick it up. These door stoppers in addition to looking extremely cute are much easier to pick up and move than an iron door stopper.
The design also features different cat breeds too. They look pretty darn realistic.
We always have a big container of cat grass for the cat to nibble on.
Actually a regular doggie visitor to the house also has a nibble.
This is a great stocking stuffer as everything is included, soil, planter and seeds. Can’t help with the green thumb but it’s pretty easy to grow. Look at ours in the picture below and it’s in a big pot.
This grass is a combination of blend of wheat, oats, rye, barley and the flax and it organic so chemical and GMO free.
Cats eat grass for digestive issues, this is a safe way to provide grass that has not been sprayed with insecticides.
I have a soft spot for Golden Books which is partly nostalgic but they do always deliver when it comes to appealing to kids.
They have to appeal to the parents, grandparents and big sisters and brothers and everyone else who read the books to the kids.
It has to be fun for us too.
Grumpy Cat is a cutie even with that face.
There are several Golden books in the Grumpy Cat series.
Pete The Cat books are great for emergent readers. The sentences are not too complex and the images give great picture cues.
This is the sort of book I read to my kids before they could read and because they were so familiar with the story and the words they were able to read the books themselves quite easily, when the time was right.
All reading strategies help but reading to your kids from Day One is one of the most important things you can do as a parent and little kids still need picture books.
I have a pile of handmade books one of my kids made, written and illustrated by him when he was a preschooler.
He mainly wrote them for his little brother, ABC books and truck books.
He then wanted me to take them to the bookshop with the hope of selling them to the shop – a budding entrepreneur.
Build a lifelong love of reading and you have given your child a precious gift.
This is a great books for kids who want to know more about their cats, a kids FAQ about cats.
It appeals to kids but is also not light and fluffy because there’s reasons for the information, so you get a decent answer.
This is the sort of book that can be picked up and put down and passed on to other kitty lovers, even Mums and Dads because the information is interesting and relevant.
It’s surprising what you may learn.
This is hilarious and will appeal to any cat lovers, adult this time not kids although older kids may understand the humor.
As a cat owner everything is highly relatable and Matthew Inman has that gift of being able to translate cat and human behaviour and how they intersect in a very funny way.
This is a fun read and will make you laugh out loud.
I love over the knee socks. Last winter I wore over the knee socks a lot as I feel the cold and wow, what a revelation for me. As long as they were not too thick and didn't interfere with skinny jeans they were a winner.
I've saved the best till last. This jewellery is not expensive but nevertheless there are some really pretty pieces. I love the ring holder as it is cute and practical.
I am seriously wanting these cat earrings. I adore them.
It’s just that moment when you go, Yes, no other words needed.
They are classic and would go with anything. My determining factor is always will they go with my jeans. If that gets the tick , well they are mine basically.
Plus they are VERY reasonably priced.
The cat is in the bag with this one.
What a lovely ring holder. The first thing I always do when I get home is take off any jewelry which includes rings I don’t want to wear around the house.
This is a routine for me that is entrenched.
This ring holder is just perfect for popping rings onto and it is a pretty piece of jewellery in itself.
Some people like a ring holder in the bathroom or in the kitchen . If you always put your rings on a ring holder there is less chance of forgetting where they are or even worse, losing them and going into a panic when they can’t be found..
Here are some more cute and affordable cat earrings.
Cat themed anything is always a topic of conversation because everyone can relate to a pet themed item. A cat themed gift is going to bring joy to any person who loves cats. Jewelry is a bit out of the scope of ordinary gifts and it helps to see lots of things to choose from. Here is a link to more cat themed jewelry.
You don't have to be a cat lover to enjoy shopping for kitty cat related gifts.
It may be easier if you are and if by now you are teetering on the side of becoming a cat lover we will keep your secret.
Don't tell the dog. He's not listening anyway. He's waiting for food.
Still looking for that perfect gift? You know, the one that will be perfect when you see it.
