A Cat Lovers Gift Guide: 2018 edition

Few things in life inspire more joy in a cat lover than a cat-themed gift that they'll actually use. We get it - not everyone is ready to splurge on designer cat furniture. That's why we've put together this list of unique and affordable gift ideas.

We love these items because they combine kitten-like cuteness with the practicality and good sense characteristic of an old tomcat. They're useful everyday items that only get more appealing when emblazoned with cat features.

For the Everyday Cat Lover:

  1. Cat Coasters

This might be the perfect practical cat-related gift, and works well as a housewarming present. Bright simple colours like these go with just about anyone’s home style. These are great to have lazing around when hosting a party.


  1. Cat Planter

 Another gift that’s both useful and rather adorable. This tiny felt cat-faced plant holder is handmade in Italy. A wool cozy dresses up a collection of succulents in warmth and style.


  1. Cat Candle

The world can be a dreary place sometimes. Cat candles make coming home from work a little cozier. This inventive design reveals a cute kitten’s inner demons with a silver skeleton as it melts.


  1. “Cat Dad” T Shirt

For the best cat father you know! There seem to be a growing number of self proclaimed “cat dads”, and we think that’s wonderful. Show your support for the men who love cats with a cool screen-printed cat t-shirt.


  1. Cat String Lights

These string lights are everything a cat lover could want on a cold winter night. They’re also just a cute accent to dress up a room any time of the year.

  1. Cat Headphones

To the naked eye, this is just a stylish black and white pattern. In fact, the screen-printed black lines are taken from an electronic readout of a cat’s purr. The best sound in the world can be with you while you cook with this unique design.


  1. Cat-Themed Soap

A great choice for eco-conscious friends, these cat-themed vegan soap bars are made of natural ingredients like organic coconut oil and organic fair trade shea and cocoa butter.
