Best Gifts For Cat Lovers
1. Cat Lady Card Drafting Game
Cat lady is a card game which takes about 30 minutes to play with two to four players.
Each player draws cards and needs to somehow look after whatever cats she draws in a particular way by the end of that game, eg by feeding three pieces of tuna.
By succeeding in that goal you win points. The player with the most points at the end wins the game.
Those are the simple rules – there are a lot of fun twists and turns when it comes to collecting other cards and other pieces (like cubes of cat food) and the tricks you can play on other players.
This game is loads of fun and has very cute illustrations on the cards.
2. Crazy Cat Lady Mug & Bowl Set
As a cat lover, you’re going to go crazy for this matching mug and cat-bowl set.
They’re made from ceramic and have words painted on them with metallic paint. The mug says “Crazy Cat Lady” and the bowl says “Crazy Lady’s Cat”.
Perhaps you’ll keep them to yourself – breakfast time might be the best time to use them when nobody else is around! You don’t want the world to know just how far you’ve gone this time!
The set is beautifully gift packaged. The mug is a large 473ml and the bowl measures 13.8*13.8*4cm. Hand wash only, please.
3. 365 Reasons to Love Your Cat
In a sturdy hardcover 365 Reasons to Love Your Cat (from Baker & Taylor) is a book to browse and meander through for laughs and ooh’s and aaagh’s as you read the clever jokes, riposts and cartoons, and look at the cutest cat pictures imaginable.
This is a 96-page book full of celebrations of all things feline for cat lovers the world over.
From the cute to the curious, the weird to the wonderful, there is a year’s worth of reflections and other morsels to delight and entertain any feline’s friend, all captured in the one coffee table book.
4. Adhesive Kitten Bandages
Purrfect for cat lovers young and old, the Adhesive Kitten Bandages are a novel, fun and attractive way to cover that scrape while it heals.
They come in a box of 18 bandages which are each shaped like a kitten – how cute is that for a little one especially? They each measure 4.5*5cm.
These bandages are completely sterile and safe, so no germs will enter the cut or other injury.
On a more serious note, they will stay affixed for several days without lifting, peeling or becoming unsightly.
And talking about that, they just look like a sticker when put on a kid’s skin – they’ll love them. All better indeed!
5. Crazy Cat Lady Socks
A genuine product from Archie McPhee, the Crazy Cat Lady Socks are intended for those crazy ladies who spend their time in PJ’s, robe and socks at home with their cats, which they’ve completely lost count of.
The socks have the representation of said robed wild-haired lady surrounded by cats and dressed completely in pink, of course.
The socks themselves are of premium quality – they’re comfortable crew style made from soft combed cotton blend fibres (which also have polyester, spandex and nylon).
It has to be said that these are one very cool pair of socks and that one and a spare would make good sense in case stocks run out!
6. Cat Eyes Sleep Mask
The Cat Eyes Sleep Mask has been designed along the thought process that when worn the wearer won’t be disturbed because any likely intruder will be put off by the green cat’s eyes staring nastily out at them, as only cats can do.
Fancy what you’ll look like when wearing these on a long plane flight!
In reality, however, the mask for the wearer is a lovely soft cotton on the inside which prevents all light from entering and disturbing sleep. The elastic strap which fits around the back of the head keeps the mask comfortably on throughout the night.
The mask measures 21cm long and 9cm wide to fit most adults, and is machine washable.
7. Crazy Cat Chaos Card Game
Ginger Fox’s Crazy Cat Chaos Card Game is as mad, and as fun, as the name suggests.
This is a game that everyone will enjoy. It’s a simple game but it requires quick thinking and speed and is highly addictive.
The game aims to collect as many sets of cards as you can by swapping cards in your ‘stacks’ with upturned cards as quickly as you can. Everybody plays at once – that’s what makes it so hilarious and fun for kids especially – it truly is completely chaotic!
The cards include 25 special ‘cat celebrity’ cards which all have funny puns on famous historical people with brilliant cartoon illustrations.
8. Cat Walk Purrfect Odd Socks
If you’re a cat lover, treat yourself to a gift you’ll never regret – a set of six unmatchable completely ‘odd’ socks, literally!
These socks are truly odd, in every way. They are the loudest in design and colour patterns (all kitty-themed of course) you may have ever seen – you’ll be noticed if you dare be seen in public with them on.
And yes, they are also odd – they are all one of a kind and cannot be matched up. What a relief! For once you can simply pick two at random and be reassured that you will indeed have matching socks, in an odd sort of way.
As an item of clothing, the socks are of a high-quality cotton blend with elastane to keep them up. They are a size UK 4 – 8 (Medium) and can be machine washed.
9. Cat Butt Magnets
Oh dear, you'd never have thought a cat's rear end would be facing you every time you opened your refrigerator door, would you? But sure enough there they are – all six of them.
There’s a Persian, a Tabby, a Siamese, and three other breeds. Giving you the, well, the butt’s up!
The Cat Butt Magnets are the brainchild of Steph Mantis, from Kikkerland.
They’re plastic and feature super strong magnets so, unfortunately, they’ll be there for a very long time. Use them for all those bills, or your kid’s drawings if you dare.
Each magnet measures approx. 5*2*3cm.
10. Animal Bluetooth Speakers (Cat)
Compact, powerful and portable, the Animal Bluetooth Speaker series can be easily hung from a handbag, backpack or wrist with its handy wrist lanyard.
The speakers come in three animal designs including cats. They have a 2W sound, can make and receive calls with a built-in mic, and with a rechargeable battery has 3-4 hours of playing time.
The power button doubles as a selfie remote. Measuring only 8*5.5*4.5cm the 2W of sound is really impressive.
The battery can be charged using the supplied USB cable from pretty well anywhere you are, which adds a new dimension to its portability.
