10 Holiday Gifts For The Discriminating Cat Lady

Skip the basic kitty Christmas gifts this year in favor of 10 purrfect presents that any feline fashionista or connoisseur of kitty chic would love!

1. ASOS Christmas Cat Sweater (also available in Green and Petite Sizes)
Ugly Christmas sweaters are in style at the moment, but I prefer this cuddlier take on the holiday classic. Looking to purchase one for the cat-man in your life? Urban Outfitters has a Santa Kitten sweater that fits the bill.

2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Rue Kitty iPhone Case and Stud Earrings (sold separately)
I'm obsessed with Marc by Marc Jacobs kitty accessories (just check out my current iPhone case), and the latest addition is a cat named Rue, who can also be found on a pendant, or on a pair of soon-to-be-released smoking cat slippers.

3. 20" Big Plush Pusheen Toy
Bring home one of the most entertaining cat comics on the web (Pusheen the Cat), in the form of an adorable plush that you'll never want to let go. Pusheen is also available in a smaller version, if you just ain't ready for all that jelly.

4. Cat Eyeglasses SweaterCat Eyeglasses Mug, and Cat Eyeglasses Pillow
I've wanted this cat sweater by UK-based brand Louche forever, and was excited to see the addition of a mug and needlepointed pillow, that would add a touch of vintage charm to any home decor.

5. "A Cat's Life" by Gemma Correll
UK-based artist Gemma Correll is known for her cute, funny, and quirky take of what goes on inside the mind's of animals. Her kitty-themed illustrations are particularly popular, and have been compiled into this 128-page, must have collection, purrfect for any cat lover.  

6. Set of 6 Hand-Carved Linocut Itty Bitty Kitty Committee Ornaments
Fans of The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, the gorgeous blog dedicated to Laurie Cinotto's fostering efforts for the Tacoma/Pierce County Humane Society, will recognize the felines featured in this hand-crafted set of ornaments by Anagram Press. There are only 200 sets available, and part of the proceeds will be donated to help stock the Tacoma Humane Society's emergency pet food bank.

7. Meow Meow Tweet Birds of a Feather Set
This decadent bath set, which is available in Lavender Lover (yes, plz!), Grapefruit Gang, and Woodsy Wonderland, comes stocked with a bar of soap, soy candle, and liquid soap with a jubilant kitty-printed label. All of the the Brooklyn-based company's products are vegan, 100% natural, 96% organic, and never tested on animals.

8. Cats Are People Too T-Shirt
The Em and Sprout Etsy shop is chock full of super cute and creative apparel and accessories, including cat shoes, bags, jewelry and more! I'm always on the prowl for cool cat threads, and this hilarious advo-cat tee is just too funny to pass up.

9. Dogeared Lucky Cat Charm
The Maneki Neko, or Beckoning Cat is a Japanese symbol of good luck, and this sparkling charm is ready to wave some good fortune your way! The simple, yet stylish feline bling is made in the USA by Dogeared, and is available in sterling silver, or in 14k gold-dipped sterling silver, as shown.

10. Le Chat Poster
Feline-themed art that manages to be cute and chic at the same time? The heart-shaped nose on this mysterious kitty is a nice touch, and the French text makes it a little fancier by default, oui?

Still looking for even more feline-themed gifts ideas to help stuff their stocking? 

A donation to a local animal shelter or national pet welfare organization is a timeless gift that never goes out of style!
