It’s been a while since the
last kitty-kat inspolist, hasn’t it? To make up for that, here’s a special
Christmas edition – a gift guide for cats & cat people alike! From cat food
to a cat bow tie and rubber stamps with cats, this is a selection of my
favourite cat things that will make any cat or/and a cat person happy!
🎄 Santa cat hat
(99p, 99p Store): Obviously, the ultimate fashion piece your cat needs for the
festive season is a Santa hat (& a collar). You can see Cookie modelling a
Santa set from 99p Store. Very fancy, right? They come in different sizes, so I
would advise go for a size bigger – cats have big heads, believe it or not –
otherwise your little beast might end up looking like the above – with the hat
on just one ear, oops! If you’re into DIY, then go ahead and place your cat on
a furry rug, in front of a fire place, under the Christmas tree & snap away
– the ultimate personalized Christmas cards sorted.
🎄 Cat bow tie (£7,
Not On The High Street – buy it here)
For a special occasion wear you might want to get your
kitty a bow tie. Just because of this. You don’t need more explanation.
🎄 Moggy bag
with treats (DIY + treats from your local supermarket)
You know how some
people bring you magnets from their trips? We bring treats. For Cookie. Once we
got him this little moggy bag full of organic treats & since then we just
keep refilling it! Now, you don’t have to buy it – it’s super easy to make at
home. Stitch up a piece of cloth into a bag shape, add a string & a ribbon
– et voila! You can get yummy kitten treats for as little as a pound!
kitty stocking (£3, Asda)
An alternative to the moggy bag – although a
rather lazy alternative. You get two tubs full of treats & a wobby treat
toy. They are apparently good for chubby cats because they push them to run
about to get the treats – yeaah, Cookie is not a fan of these, but I always
try! Might need to get him a cat treadmill next year, fat git.
🎄 Cat storage
Casey London – buy it here)
A present for both of you – can’t go wrong, right? These
storage tins are genius and so so affordable. You can store your jewellery in
it, or you can use it for dry food for your cat. It keeps the dry food nice
& fresh (I’ve noticed that when I buy the big box of dry food it sometimes
goes mouldy at the bottom because Cookie doesn’t eat it that quickly, ew!), so
this tin is the perfect solution! And it looks absolutely adorable, too!
🎄 Cat rubber
stamp collection (£5.99, eBay – buy it here)
Okay, these stamps are not the best quality –
the glue is leaking and the rubber doesn’t stay put on the little foam cubes,
but they still work just fine! I use them for that little extra touch on
greetings cards, envelopes and packages – just so people know it’s from me
before they even open it, haha! You can get quite a few different designs with
different animals, so have a browse!
Cat notepads (£1 for a
small one, £5 for a
bigger one, Casey London – buy them here)
either your little ones or to write down your cat’s vaccinations etc. I use
mine as a little to-do notepad – it’s so small you can just throw it in your
handbag & you won’t even know it’s there! The kitty pen is a souvenir I got
from Redwings Horse Santuary when we went there for a day out (read more
here), but I’ve seen them in a few charity/hospice shops, too.
🎄 Katy Perry Meow! EDP (£12 for 30ml, Fragrance Direct – buy here)
cat ex libris (£10, Etsy – buy here)
If you have a friend who you consider to be a bit of your private library, you
might want to get them a personalized ex libris stamp. I’ve had so many people
borrow books from me & never return them that I started stamping them.
Haven’t noticed much difference in the return rate, but at least my books are mine,
presents this year?
