Cat owners who set out to find the perfect gift for their feline friend are faced with a worryingly large number of options. Choosing the very best gifts for cat lovers isn’t easy but we have narrowed the choice to the 15 best gifts for the upcoming holiday season.

Along with “I love you” mugs, cat-themed mugs are one of the tackiest gifts out there. However, a cat lover can still appreciate a gift mug if it’s original enough. If you cannot find a matching mug, then you can always have a logo or a message printed on a heat reactive mug.

Scratchers come in all shapes and sizes but unless your cat falls in love with them, the couch is going to become a provisionary scratching post. Modern lounge scratchers are designed in a way that fits into every interior, so cat lovers will like them as well.
Dogs reign supreme when it comes to playing catch but cats are fond of a good run-out as well. Owners who keep their pets indoors have play balls but there are often inadequate in the sense that a throw in the wrong direction can take out a lamp shade, for instance. That’s why a light, foam ball is perfect for a cat lover, as it won’t break anything inside the house, nor injure the animal.

Again, a dog on a leash is far more common than a cat on a leash. However, we’ll let you in on a little secret: most cat owners are actively thinking about buying a cat leash (unless they’ve bought one already).
This holiday season, you can buy them precisely that and help make up their mind that it’s about time they took Fluffy for a walk in the park. Just make sure you buy the harness of the right color and size to match the animal’s built.
A cat in a bag doesn’t seem like an inviting thought, unless the bag is custom-tailored for felines. A short online search for clear bubble cat backpacks will reveal a whole world of funny-looking cat carriers that would put a smile on every cat lover’s face. Unlike a leash, a cat would be perfectly safe (e.g. from dogs) on its owner’s back.
Generally speaking, cats are playful animals, especially when they get excited about something. We all toyed with cats when we were children using laser pointers but now it’s time to take things to a whole new level.
Professional pet shops have lasers made especially for cats that allow you to change the image displayed, as well as the color of the laser itself. The “perfect,” shiny gift for the upcoming holiday season.
Using the words “cat” and “candle” in the same sentence gives cat owners reason for concern. However, scented candles don’t have an adverse effect on cats as the animal won’t suffer any harm from the chemical. Of course, the cat-themed candle you purchase should be placed in such a way that the cat doesn’t knock it over while sneaking by.

Every cat owner already has a litter box but they are probably lacking a Zen garden (for themselves and the cat). Such a present does exist and it would blow away every cat lover. The difference between it and a plain litter box is the addition of stones/pebbles and a tiny wooden rake.
Cats usually don’t need pedicure but you can beautify their paws using soft nail caps. These come in different colors, as the will make your cat stand out from the crowd, i.e. the clowder. Nail caps have a practical purpose as well, as they prevent the cats from scratching your furniture.
Fond of yoga? Then you need a cat-themed yoga mat. Not only can you order these online but there are many charities and animal shelters that offer yoga mats in exchange for a donation to help homeless pets. A win-win situation for every cat lover.
A true home is not complete without a clock and what better design that the one with two “cat ears.” This present is cheap to get but you get to choose from hundreds of different designs of clocks whose dials replicate a cat’s head/face. Even catlike alarm clocks make for great gifts!
Cat lovers hoard all feline-related stuff but they probably don’t have a puzzle set! This gift is not only inexpensive but there are thousands of stock images to choose from online. However, our advice is to find the picture of your friend’s cat and create a puzzle with its image.
Cat lovers who work using a laptop would love to stick cat decals on their laptop. This is another of those ideas that they have been thinking about for a long time but never found the time to execute it. Find good-quality sticker that peel off easily, so the laptop isn’t damaged.
In the end (literally), cats are animals, which means they perceive food as the top sign of affection. The holidays are the perfect time to buy special treat for your or your friends’ cat. Whether it’s salmon nuggets or tuna fillets, it matters little, as long as the animal devours them in a single go.
Whether it’s a candle or a heat reactive mug, you should strive for originality when shopping for your (or your friend’s) cat this holiday season. Use the fact that there are so many feline amenities out there to select the very best gifts for cat lovers.
