Fortunately, there is a wide array of cat-themed gifts to choose from. You will certainly find something that is fun and affordable for that special cat lover in your life.
So if you're looking for a unique, low-priced cat gift and don't know where to start, take heart. Here are six inexpensive gift ideas for cat lovers. You can find most of these gifts for $25.00 or less.
1. Cat Calendars
You can give a whimsical cat calendar by itself or you can include it in a cat-themed basket. There are several options to choose from: wall calendars, pocket calendars, planners, and desk calendars, just to name a few. You can also give customized calendars.
2. Cat T-Shirts
These make fun gifts for adults and children alike. And they're so easy to find online. Several online stores even allow you to personalize your pieces. For example, you can choose a design from a selection of available logos and images, or you can upload your own graphics. Cat T-shirts come in different styles and prices and most are very affordable.
3. Cat Posters
Does you friend love cats and art? Then cat posters are the perfect choice. And even if your friend is not an art enthusiast, he will surely appreciate this gift. Luckily, there is a wide selection to choose from: from humorous artwork to traditional pictures; and from inspirational works to whimsical pieces. For an extra fee, you can have your poster framed. And if you can afford it, give a fine art print. You can even find reproductions of famous works of art, including Renoir's Woman with a Cat.
4. Cat Magnets
Feline-inspired magnets make fun, and affordable, cat gifts. You can give just one or a whole set. Better yet, you can help your friend start a collection of cat-themed magnets. You can also include a cat magnet in a cat lover gift basket.
5. Cat Books
This idea is one of my personal favorites. You can find cat books on subjects as varied as humor, art, photography, history, inspiration, mystery, trivia, health, cat care, and much more. Undoubtedly, this is the perfect gift for cat lovers who also enjoy a good read. Do you need some ideas? A popular series of cat-inspired books is The Cat Who... series of mystery novels, by Lillian Jackson Braun. A personal favorite is Angel Cats: Divine Messengers of Comfort by Allen Anderson and Linda Anderson. Another popular book is Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul: Stories of Feline Affection, Mystery and Charm by Jack L. Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Carol Kline, Amy D. Shojai, and Marty Becker.
6. Cat Candles
Does your friend love decorating? Does she love candles? If this is the case, your friend will love the gift of feline-inspired candles. You can give one or an entire set, or include it in a gift basket. Candles with cat motifs and cat-shaped candles can be easily found online. And you can find both scented and unscented candles.
A cat-themed picture frame is another fun and inexpensive gift idea. If you can, include a picture of the gift recipient's cat. If you plan on giving a cat lover gift basket, also include a cat-inspired picture frame. It will add a nice touch to your basket.
