It is well-known that most cat lovers know no bounds in showing their endless appreciation for these adorable fur balls. However, you’ll find that your average cat lover typically comes in two breeds.
Those who cherish cats so much that they’ll appreciate receiving anything cat-related, and those who hold their cats dearly would love to immortalize them with personalized cat gifts.
To get started, you can always browse gifts for pets to find unique ones on Etsy. Also, check out our selections below.

General Cat Lover Gifts
A nutritious snack or a topper for a raw-food diet, this quail egg yolk is freeze-dried carefully to ensure it is long-lasting but retains all the good nutrients. Packed with protein and beneficial vitamins, quail egg yolks are the perfect additive to your cat’s diet if you’re avoiding eating chicken eggs or chicken in generally.
Cats seem never to want to stop playing, making this large activity mat one of the best cat lover gifts for those whose fur balls need more exercise. This is a dual-layered rug that can be set up in many configurations. The top layer has cut-up holes where the cat can peek or poke a little paw.

This banana-shaped toy is filled with organically grown catnip and dyed with natural substances that are entirely non-toxic for cats. They will adore this shape, making it irresistible for bunny kicking or nuzzling. In addition, the catnip inside is high-quality, ensuring your crazy cat will cool down and relax after sniffing it. Remember, though – only 60% of cats react to catnip – so make sure your kitty or the one you are buying for it is a catnip kitty!
This nifty little cat litter scoop has such a practical and innovative design. It may become a game-changer for any cat owner and one of the most useful gifts for cats. The feature that sets it apart from its competitors is how the blades were conceived – the peaked blades prevent litter from getting caught in and clogging the scooper.
5. Zen Clippers
This is the ultimate gift for cat owners who have difficulty cutting their cats’ nails. Especially if they cannot identify the quick area on the cat’s nail – the blood flow area of the nail. Suppose the cat has a tendency to wiggle during this process. The Zen Clippers are ideal for preventing unpleasant scenarios, such as pain and bleeding.
Most cat owners struggle with removing cat hair from their clothes and homes but to no avail. However, this Be Forever Furless Brush can do this since it is specifically designed for pet hair removal. In addition, with its ergonomic shape, this brush is an excellent alternative to carrying around a vacuum or using a lint roller.
Cats have an impressive need for sleep and an equally considerable compulsion to scratch and sharpen their nails. With this in mind, the Necoichi Scratcher Bed is a gift that satisfies both needs: a bed and a scratcher. In addition, this practical gift is made of corrugated cardboard, making it a long-lasting and, ultimately, a recyclable product.
An excellent product that puts a different spin on the vertical scratching beam, the Felix beam is a horizontal scratcher to mimic a stair to which so many cats tend to be attracted. This practical beam is covered in hemp, a rough texture all cats love. It is supported by rubber feet, which prevent the product from slipping away.
A two-in-one gift, the PurrFur Scratch Pad is a scratch pad and a bed that cats can use for some nap time after they’ve finished sharpening their claws. Its retro and stylish design makes it a perfect addition to any home. Not only will its new owner be okay with having it around, but it will use it as a home decor accessory.
A bigger version of the PawNosh Glass Pet Bowl Cubby Mini is presented as #1 on this list. This glass dish is an ideal gift for cat owners who want an easy-to-clean and reusable item. In addition, this bowl is highly durable and comes with a lifetime against breakage; many find it a piece of art.

Filled with fascinating two-page stories and beautiful pictures, the Shop Cats of New York book makes a great gift. Tamar Arslanian, one of New York’s lasting residents, put it together. These are stories of ordinary kittens and cats of all breeds that have found their forever homes in the most unusual places: convenience stores, hotels, and pharmacies.
The Blackhole Catch, The Tail Cat Toy, is an interactive cat toy that will engage your cat to play without you having to participate. It is an excellent toy for cats of all ages, and it comes with five-speed settings and a squeaking mouse sound to make it even more attractive to your cat. It is compatible with a wide range of surfaces – such as wooden floors or carpets, but it can also be mounted on the wall.
Buy the Catch the Tail on eBay.
A cat bed like no other, the Bowsers Pet Bed Urban Lounger is made by a Canadian manufacturing company. They use high-quality fabrics that come together through exquisite craftsmanship. The bed is washable and durable, making it a tempting gift for any cat owner willing to invest in quality and comfort. And most importantly, it is made of non-toxic materials that are safe for your kitty to lie on for hours. They also come in many different fabric choices.
Do you have a cat-loving friend who also loves to bake? Another great gift for a cat lover would be something as quirky and practical as a cat-patterned wooden rolling pin. This would make an excellent addition to the kitchen and a great conversation starter when cookies come out of the oven in an adorable cat pattern. This rolling pin is made of natural birch wood and is treated with a non-toxic oil.
There are no seasonal restrictions when showing appreciation for cats. This is why a cat-themed, cozy pair of gloves would also make a great gift in chillier months. They are made of a soft and warm type of wool and have an endearing cat design on the palms. Think crazy cat lady or any cat lady, in general.
Undoubtedly, many people would enjoy a coloring book filled with fun silhouettes of cats in various positions and breeds. As a result, adult coloring books have caught the spotlight these past few years. For a good reason, too. Coloring can have a powerful, calming, and soothing effect.
These colorful handmade balls are a lot of fun for cats, who will love to paw them around and chase them. They’re made from alpaca fibers wrapped in sheep wool and come in various shades (which you can request or get a mix). You can also order them pre-steeped in catnip tea, and they can be refreshed and re-steeped at home.
Then again, each cat owner ultimately has different needs when it comes to providing for their cat. This is why the best gift you could give a cat lover would be a gift card to their local pet store. This way, they can get whatever they need or want.
Buy gift cards on Amazon or in the store of your choice.
20. Donation to a Local Shelter
On a similar note, many cat lovers would do anything to help abandoned or suffering cats. However, they may not be able to contribute as much as they’d like. With this in mind, they’d love it if you donated in your name to your local shelter.
Crazy Cat Lady or not, your friend may very well love to discover she is now a happy subscriber to a monthly Cat Lady box like CrateJoy. Cat box subscriptions usually contain several items ideal for any cat lady: cat t-shirts, cat jewelry, cat art, and cat home decor.
Following the same idea from #21, you could also make a cat lover happy by offering them a gift card to an online pet store, such as Chewy.com, OnlyNaturalPet.com, and The Cat Connection. This way, they can get anything they want from the comfort of their own home.
27. Cat Shelf
This gift would not only make a cat lover swoon but also make a cat extremely happy. This cat shelf can be mounted on a wall as a resting place or a transition step from one level to another. This is an excellent opportunity to introduce a bit of fun and challenge in the cat’s life.
The Nina Ottosson Dog Brick Treat Puzzle Dog Toy is a pet toy that helps animals exercise their minds. Pets have to flip open the top compartments, paw and nuzzle to remove the middle compartments, and then slide the blocks into the lower compartments to get the treats inside. It turns eating into an enjoyable activity and improves a pet’s mind.
30. Scratchy Ramp
After several readers asked me if we had reviewed the Scratchy Ramp, I finally researched to find the company behind it. I asked if they could send us one to review – not knowing they had two sizes. They were so kind and sent us both sizes to check out. Here’s our unboxing video – both ramps were a hit when I pulled them out of the box.
You can grab one here and use the Scratchy Ramp discount code FLOPPYCATS20 to save 20% – that code also works as an Alpha Paw promo code or coupon code and works on the Paw Ramp.

Buy an etched 3D block.
37. Photo Blanket
Another great item in the series of gifts for cat lovers, a cat photo blanket may be one of the most fabulous gift ideas you could have. This will be a large, pixel-by-pixel rendition of your cat on a soft, easy-care polyester blanket. All you need to do is to provide a high-quality picture, and you’re set.
38. Photo Canvas
The same idea as with #28 is applied here but with the photo canvas. So you can own a canvas print of your favorite photo of your cat, which you can hang proudly on the walls of your home. The ink is good quality, and the image will be long-lasting.
39. Photo Mousepad
A cat photo mousepad can be a small yet practical gift all cat lovers can appreciate. You can use any picture to make one, regardless of how funny or cute the cat looks. This way, the cat owner can smile whenever they glance at their beloved fur ball printed on the mousepad.
This personalized cat notecard set comes with flat cards and envelopes from which you can choose the color. In addition, you can customize the name next to the playful cat silhouette – an excellent gift for any cat lovers out there.
Cat lovers will always find new creative ways to show appreciation for their loveable pets. A customized photo necklace of their cat is undoubtedly a gift they will forever be thankful for. It’s made of sterling silver and will be an endearing depiction of the pet.
This stainless steel cat bowl is excellent for cats suffering from whisker fatigue. It has a solid steel design and a wide, shallow curve, which means cats can quickly reach their food without straining or brushing their whiskers against hard, raised sides. In addition, as it’s made from steel, it’s easy to clean and suitable for preventing chin acne.
Another version of the coloring book is to make your coloring book by getting a printable cat drawing to your liking. This comes in a JPEG format that you can download up to 20 times and print how many times you want to. Or you can get one to frame and hang on your wall.
