Best gifts for cat lovers
1. Adicreat 3D Printed Funny Tank Tops
Calling all body positive cat lovers. If you’re a fan of skin-tight tops, fire breathing dinosaurs and can’t get enough of magical pussy cats, then your passions have collided in this Adicreat 3D Printed tank top. To say it’s attention-grabbing doesn’t do it justice. We’re talking an intergalactic backdrop, T Rexs and kittens uniting in an epic battle of unlikely coalitions, and a random school of goldfish flying up your rib cage - feline fantasy meets fabric. Pick one up from £11.99 and stand out from the crowd today.
2. Fluff you cat mug
This isn't the only mug in our list but it's the most office appropriate. When deadlines are piling up, idle chatter is on the rise and aggression is out of the question, a bit of passive aggression could be just the ticket.
A fingernail clink of this mug with a well-placed glance at a colleague who's taking the biscuit, and they should get the picture without taking offence - nothing like an illustrated cat to defuse the tension.
3. Ceramic Kitten Surprise Mug (cup)
As for the mug to get that colleague you actually like, this one is a heart-melting surprise waiting to happen with every brew. Strictly speaking, it's more of a cup than a mug given its small size, so it might not be ideal for thirsty coffee lovers.
That said, thanks to an adorable ceramic kitten at the bottom, every cup of tea or coffee going forward will end on a cat-tastic high.
4. Cat Opoly
If you think you already know exactly what this is, chances are, you probably do. This unofficial copycat takes our favourite property-based boardgame and swaps out streets for cat breeds, ‘Free Parking’ for catnip and the traditional metal pieces for cat-themed items like catnip treats and a ball of wool.
Costing £36.99 and having received great user reviews, if anything was going to bring a cat-loving family together, it would be Cat Opoly.
5. The Winsterch Cuddly Plush Cat
There are few things in life more heartbreaking than a cat lover without a cat, so if you know a wannabe pet owner who needs some love, our recommendation would be some low maintenance fluff.
The Winsterch Cuddly Plush Cat is a big, huggable toy that comes in two sizes, 30cm and 50cm. Starting at £16.99, it’s significantly cheaper than a real deal, is perfect for kids and big kids alike, and can be had in black and grey versions.
6. Mother of Cats
Game of Thrones may be over, but that doesn’t mean it can’t live on in your wardrobes in the form of this Mother of Cats t-shirt.
It packs a beautiful kitty Khaleesi crest on the front, paying tribute to mothers of kittens and feeders of cats everywhere. Available in a range of colours and sizes, each with ornate floral patterning, this gift is machine washable and will set you back £15.99.
7. Sorry, I'm playing with my cat - T-shirt
If you have a cat, you’ll know the feeling: it's time to leave the house when all you want to do is stay in, your cat looks at you longingly, begging you to stay, maybe even throwing the odd meow and purr your way to convince you. Maybe it’s time to start encouraging giving in to this temptation, relaxation and cat time. Gift a friend or loved one with this t-shirt, and they can set their sights on an evening of indulgence and cosying up to their kitty.
8. Cat bingo
What do games and cats have in common? They’re both a lot of fun. That’s why when we found out Cat Bingo existed, it just made sense.
With no less than 64 breeds, this multiplayer game sees participants mark the breed called off on their card, and when all their cats have been called … “BINGO!”. They’ll learn breed names, colourings and characteristics, combining education with a love of all things feline.
