The Best Gifts for Cat Lovers

Practical, hardwearing and very Christmas cute, the Catmas door mat is one of our perfect gifts for cat lovers. Made from 100% coconut coir fiber, it is idea for outdoor use and can take the muddiest or snowiest boots in its stride. With its Christmas cat motif, and a fun ‘Meowy Catmas’ message, it is also a good choice to put out during the Holidays to give your guests a feline-warm welcome. Sized to fit smoothly under most doors, there’s no sticking with it either as your door should simply glide open across the surface. It is also easy to shake clean. For around $25 it comes in at a good price and can be brought out year after year for a seasonal welcome to your home.

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.

And the fit into the ear super secure too, thanks to the lever-back closure, so you don’t have to worry about losing what will become a really special gift that any cat lover will treasure.

When looking for the perfect cat stuff for cat lovers, you can’t really go wrong with a little bit of dress up, especially as it is the Holiday season. And while these gorgeous collars are for a cat, they are sure to make the cat lover in your life smile. Made from durable polyester, with fine yet tough stitching, this two-collar pack gives you the choice of two different cat Christmas designs. Each collar sports a super-smart festive bow plus a lovely jingle bell. And what we like about this two-collar set is that they are not just a gimmick as they work well as everyday cat collars. The plastic buckles are really durable and well made, and there’s a breakaway clasp should the collar get hooked onto a branch of the Christmas tree!

For cooks who also love their cats, we think this delightful kitchen dishtowel would be a welcome addition to their Christmas stocking. And the message ‘home is where your cat is’ will resonate to those who really care about felines. The black and white thin stripe design with the cat motif are modern and smart and will look good in any kitchen. Made from 100% cotton, this is a quality dishtowel that not only looks good but is practical and long-lasting too. The general towel measure 18×28 inches, so will make light drying work of even large pots and pans. And it can be kept sparkly clean by popping in the washing machine, before tumble drying on a low setting. With this cat embellished dishtowel, we think you’ll have your search for gifts for cat owners all wrapped up.

With plaid both smart and Christmassy, this handsome collar from Necoichi has to be one of the best cat lovers gifts and will make their kit the total star of the Holidays. Handcrafted, this is a high-quality piece for the price and is a standout thanks to the lux red/black/white plaid fabric. As an addition to their kit’s Holiday wardrobe it is durable enough to be worn both inside and out and features a jingle bell, so you know where they are. The front plaid bow is also set off by a Christmas green back bow and the whole collar is cat safe, thanks to the quick-release buckle that comes undone if they find themselves in any holiday scrapes.

For the fashion-conscious cat owner, these stunning silver earrings are a wonderful way to wear their pet-loving heart, if not on their sleeve then certainly on their ears! With the silvertone silver, enhanced by the tiny crystals, giving these earrings a star-like shine, you also get jet inset in the shape of a feline paw. As drop earrings, they hang beautifully with the black and silver styling really catching the light. And for extra security, the back-ever closures ensure they can’t lose their precious cat lover gifts. We think these earrings will add a pop of shine to any Christmas outfit, making them the perfect cat lover gift this Holiday time.

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. You can even add a name and a date as a really special tribute and to keep your kit a central part of your family Christmas. It is also double sided, for two photos so you always get a glimpse of your cat as the ornament swings on the Christmas tree. Cute, poignant and totally unique, we think this simple but effective idea makes for one of the best Christmas cat items for cat lovers this yuletide.

A Christmas gift for a cat fan doesn’t always have to be for their pet, as this quality piece of wall art beautifully shows. Emblazoned with the words ‘My Kids have Paws’, this string art recreates their precious paw print and would look stunning on the wall in any room of your cat lover’s home. And it really is a statement piece, adding a rustic charm to the décor. Made from real wood that has vintage plank appeal, the color is warm and understated so won’t clash with your home’s design. The cross-pin string is also quite mesmerizing, with the nails and black line coming together to recreate the shape of a paw print. The whole piece is also a versatile size – 6 x 1.75 x 6 inches – so small enough to free-stand on your desk as well as hang neatly on your wall.

Make an outdoor statement with this cat paw inspired garden sign, and let Santa know you have a kit that’s been well-behaved waiting for his presents at home! With its subtle Christmas red colors, this garden flag is also versatile as it will look good all year round.  Printed on both sides, the flat is made from thick polyester cotton that is weather durable and will retain the vibrant colors. And we like the way the design includes a faux wood panel pattern that really catches the eye. This outdoor flag is a way for a friend or family member declare their love for their cat as well as letting others know this is feline territory. And the metal flag frame is durable and should stand the test of time. A great way to show the cat love this Christmas time.

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.
