Ridiculous cat gifts for cat ladies and the cats they love.
For Christmas this year I decided to buy matching pajamas as cat gifts for me and my cats. I was determined to get an adorable Christmas card photo with my whole furry family together. I set up a tripod with my mirrorless camera, installed the wireless remote app on my phone, did my makeup, got dressed, and waited until I had the perfect combination of sleepy kitties and window sunlight.
Yeah, that went about as well as expected…
While I looked adorable, Ford, no matter how tired and peaceful he looked, bit me and full-on attacked the PJs whenever I tried to put them on him. And Rooney? Rooney was so traumatized by the whole experience that he ran and hid under the couch at the mere site of the red polyester jammies.
Cat mom fail.
Anyways, it’s almost Christmas and that means cat ladies like me are busy making lists of all the cat-themed paraphernalia we would like to douse ourselves and our homes with and our greedy little cats are making lists of all the catnip-filled-toys their hearts and claws desire. So I decided to spend my Thanksgiving break compiling a ridiculously long list of ridiculous cat gifts for cat ladies and the cats they love.
Some of these gifts for cat lovers (and cats) are actually practical, some of them are just too cute for words, and some of them are WTF crazy (like a $9,000 cat tree you should totally buy for me with that extra $9,000 you have sitting around).
Any of these are perfect (purr-fect?) cat presents for yourself, your cat-loving girlfriend, or your spoiled-rotten cats…
Cat Gifts for Cat Ladies
The best cat gifts for cat ladies come from the heart (and paw). From cat-shaped jewelry to custom cat portraits and all kinds of cat themed merchandise in between, these cat lady gifts are purr-fect for cat moms and cat lovers alike.
1. Mini Cat Bracelet (Luckee Luv Studio/ETSY)
Jewelry always makes great gifts for cat lovers. Wear your love for your cats on your wrist with this dainty rose gold bracelet with interlinking cat charms.
2. Gold Cat Ears Ring (Luckee Luv Studio/ETSY)
If you like your cat you better put a ring on it. This cat gift for her is a subtle nod to one of the cutest parts of the cat, his pointy ears, this cat-ear-shaped ring makes a delicate tribute to your favorite pet.
3. “My Cat is Famous On The Internet” Tote Bag
If your cat is an Instagram influencer (or aspires to be one) this “My Cat is Famous on the Internet” tote bag is the perfect accessory for declaring her internet fame to the world while hauling a 12-pack of Friskies back from the store.
4. Mali White Cat Ring (GOODAFTERNINE)
Make a statement with a cat-shaped statement ring. This enamel ring is as loud as your cat screaming for dinner (even though he’s already been fed).
5. Cat Picture Frame (Urban Outfitters)
If you love your cat as much as I love mine you’ve probably replaced all the art in your home with framed photos of your little monsters. No? Well even if you only love your cat a medium-sized amount, cute little cat-shaped photo frames make great cat themed gifts to display that one non-blurry photo you have of your cat.
6. Girls and Their Cats Book
Girls and Their Cats is a celebration of the modern cat lady, those strong women taking on the world with a feline by their sides.
7. Cat Mom Enamel Keychain (Hennel Paper Co/ETSY)
Even if you would prefer to never leave your cat’s side, chances are that you have to leave your house every once in a while. When you do, be sure that you grab your keys and that they are on a cat-shaped keychain.
8. Kitten Ear Stud (Catbird NYC)
Wear your cats ears on your ears. How meta these cat lady presents are. These abstract earrings would be dainty additions to your cat-shaped jewelry collection.
9. Crown & Paw Renaissance Custom Pet Portrait
Have you ever wondered what your cat would look like as an admiral, a colonel, or a princess? Crown & Paw makes amazing custom pet portraits of your cat in the style of Renaissance masterpieces. I need a pair to hang over my cats’ food bowls. Or maybe their litter boxes. Anyways. If you’re looking for unique cat gifts for cat lovers, this is the ultimate example.
10. Cat-Shaped Bottle Opener (West Elm)
They say it’s not drinking alone if you’re drinking with your cat so you should both appreciate this cat-shaped cork screw. Grab a bottle of MosCATo and have a wild Friday night at home.
11. Cats Tea Towel (Paper Source)
People I love: 1. Cats. … This tea towel pretty much perfectly captures my every day mood and, therefore, is a fantastic cat related gift.
12. Stay Home Club Custom Portrait
I’m slightly obsessed with all things from Stay Home Club but their custom portraits are next level. You can choose from pre-made templates to recreate your entire family, pets and all, in their signature cartoonish look. The image above is actually one I had made for me and my cats and it’s pretty much the best thing ever. These would definitely make for unique gifts for cat lovers.
13. Suflanda Cat Heart Hoodie
True story: I am in a Starbucks writing this gift guide right now and wearing this exact sweatshirt and two separate random people have complimented it. It’s that amazing. Bonus points that it is also ridiculously soft and cozy.
14. Poppy Angeloff Ultimate Cat Lover’s Dream Teacup Set
Ultimate Cat Lover’s Dream Teacup Set: that name pretty much says it all. Could you imagine the epic tea party you could have with these and all you feline friends (and I guess human friends too)? If you don’t want the whole set you can buy them individually but I kind of want the whole set even though I already have an entire tea set and an entire coffee set and have never actually used either… Anyways, these cups and sauces would make ridiculous crazy cat lady presents.
15. Meowingtons Custom Cat Blanket
If your favorite thing in the world is to curl up on the couch with your cat but your cat is a finicky bastard and doesn’t cuddle at will, this blanket is for you. Custom printed with photos of your cat’s face, you can cozy up whether your cat is into it or not.
16. Ryan Berkley Illustration Rainbow Kitten Art Print (ETSY)
This rainbow-loving cat looks at the world through heart shaped glasses, as we all should. I have this print at home because it reminds me of Rooney if he was a little more fabulous. They make prints with all kinds of cats in different styles and they are all pretty awesome.
17. Catbird NYC Kitten Candle
If your apartment doesn’t smell enough like cat, how about lighting a kitten-scented candle? OK, it doesn’t really smell like a cat (at least…I hope it doesn’t). But also how can you not want to buy all your presents for cat lovers from a store called Catbird?
18. Stay Home Club Another Night In Loose Tee
I have a similar print to this by the same artist (Julia Bereciartu) hanging in my bathroom. This t-shirt perfectly encapsulates what I probably wish I was doing instead if I were to wear it out of the house.
19. Emily McDowell Cat Lady For Life Mug
I have this mug and it’s my favorite mug for drinking my morning coffee or my late-night tea curled up in bed with my babies. Obviously cat lady mugs make the best gifts for cat ladies.
20. Streetzies High Heel Kitty Slippers
ARE THESE NOT THE MOST AMAZING SHOES YOU HAVE EVER LAID YOUR EYES ON? That is all.
21. Cats on Catnip Book
Cats on catnip are hilarious. When Ford has catnip he goes ballistic and tries to eat his own tail. When Rooney has it he rolls around until he’s covered in green flecks than stops and stares for a while. The Cats on Catnip book captures all kinds of kitties getting high on the nip.
22. Art Knacky Pet Table Lamp (Anthropologie)
This regal cat lamp is so tacky I can’t stand it. But I kind of want it. But I also kind of have no idea where I’d put it. And I’m also kind of pretty sure my cats would knock it over no matter where it was.
23. KITTYROO Cat Hoodie
I’m pretty sure that my cats would claw my eyes out if I tried to put them in this cat-carrying kangaroo pouch sweatshirt…but, much like the great matching pajama experiment, I’m willing to risk it. If you also know someone willing to risk their life to get that much closer to their cat, they make great Christmas gifts for cat lovers.
24. Sebastian Cat Brass Ornament (CB2)
Because every Christmas tree should have a nice cat ornament before your cats knock it down, cat ornaments make great Christmas presents for cat lovers.
