Considering the title of this blog, it’s about time I wrote a post about unique gifts for cat lovers.
Yes, we have three cats. Gingie, who belongs to my oldest daughter and was named after my mother. Snickers, who showed up at the door after Thanksgiving dinner just a few days after our beloved Scooter died. And Grey, who amazingly will be turning twenty years old next month.
If you’re a cat lover — or know someone who is — you might want to take a peek at these three really cute gifts I found.
Note: All the gifts in this post were listed at a price over $10 on Amazon at the time of this writing. If you’re shopping with a smaller budget, check out my post on Gifts for Cat Lovers Under $10.
This set of six kitty magnets attach securely not only to wine glasses, but also through regular glasses — say, for iced tea or lemonade — and even coffee cups. The set would be great at a dinner party or any other get-together to help people keep tracks of whose drink is whose. (Not to mention being a good conversation starter.) Reviewers say that the magnets are surprisingly strong, so the magnets won’t be falling into everyone’s drinks.
They also work as refrigerator magnets, so you can easily keep them on display even when you’re not using them.
This set of four measuring cups/bowls in different colors makes a great housewarming gift for someone “who has everything” and could use a gift that’s just whimsical and fun.
It’s worth noting that these are more for decoration and light use. Not only are they delicate, but the fill line is marked on the inside of the cup, on one side only, roughly 1/4 inch below the rim, and the darker the color, the harder the line is to see. This makes it difficult for measurements of dry ingredients to be exactly. But if you’re buying them more for the cute faces and tiny feet than because you expect to bake with them every day, I think you will be pleased.
If you’re shopping for a family of cat lovers, this unique version of the board game Monopoly might make the perfect gift.
In the Catopoly version, the game pieces are a milk bottle, mouse, sardines, cat food, fish, and ball of yarn. Instead of buying houses and hotels for your properties, you buy fish bones and litter boxes for your cats. “Catnip” takes the place of “Free Parking,” and instead of “going to jail, you “fall into the water.”
The most significant difference is that instead of real estate card, you have “cat breed cards” that has trivia about different breeds of cats on the back. So you can learn something about your favorite furry friends while you play.
This shower curtain would definitely make a unique gift! It is made of 100% polyester fabric, so no liner is needed, and it comes with plastic hooks. Some reviewers said that the colors were a little more muted and less vibrant than they appear in the photo, which could be a good or bad thing depending on your personal tastes.
Unique Christmas Gift for Cat Lovers
I’ve heard people say that it’s harder to find black cat trinkets because there’s a stigma attached. I haven’t had a black cat for many years, so I’m not sure if that’s true or not.
Either which way, this black kitty Christmas ornament is adorable (although, at only two inches, pretty small). One of the nicest things about it is that the red and green scarf is removable, so it doesn’t have to be only a holiday ornament.
Of course you can’t have a post for cat lovers without some cute cat videos — so here ya go!
