Cherished memories of all your family can be captured in photos and your cat is no exception. And this lovely double-framed picture holder from Pearhead would make one of the most thoughtful and unique cat gifts. Made from solid wood and stained a rich espresso, it is a freestanding picture frame you’d be happy to have at work or in your home. And what makes this desk frame really stand out is that one side is for a photo of your cat, while the other holds a clay print of their paw, which you can easily do at home. The kit includes everything you need to make the paw print, including non-toxic, air drying clay, into which you press their paw to get that special imprint. Once dry, the clay paw print fits neatly into the second frame, so even when your cat is not around, he is always close to hand.

Trimming the Christmas tree has to be one of the best traditions of the Holidays, with decorations becoming precious items to pass down in the family. So why not make your cat lover smile this Christmas with a new ornament for their tree – featuring their precious kit.

As a reminder of a past pet, or as a fun way to incorporate a family cat into the holiday traditions, this personalized tree decoration from Frisco is a delight. Cut into the shape of a paw print, you can choose from red or green plaid background before getting a photo of your cat inserted into a central frame.

Our final Christmas gift idea for cat lovers is such a pawsome idea, and a great choice for the car fan too. With this paw print license plate frame, they can take their love for their pets out on the open road for everyone to see. Made from chrome die-cast metal alloy, the frame is really durable, making it corrosion-resistant and long-lasting, in all weather and road conditions. Then around the frame you get an eye-catching pattern of black paw prints, which have been sealed with a clear UV overcoat to prevent fading or chipping of the design. With the frame designed to fit most standard number plates, it is easy to fit too, and can be used on either the front or rear plate – or get two for a full set on your car. However, bolts are not included so make sure you go to the hardware store and buy some to include in your wrapped Christmas gift.
