It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The decorations are out, the sing-a-longs are on repeat, and it’s time to SHOP. Of course I thoroughly enjoy receiving presents, but my favorite part is giving them. I love thinking of interesting gifts that are unique to the person I’m buying for and something that they wouldn’t necessarily utilize for themselves. I’m also a big advocate of buying things you want not things you need.
This post is about buying for a particular personality: The Cat Lady. Let’s face it, we all have one of those crazies in our life in some form or another. Your mother, your sister, your wife, your bestie, or maybe that creepy neighbor that lives next door. It is so easy to buy junk for a cat lady – kitschy stocking stuffers that are always well appreciated, but even cat ladies have a limit. What I am going to suggest today, is gifts for that classy cat lady (if there even is such a thing). Something more unique, fashion forward, and that won’t be pushed aside with all her other kitty figurines.
Budget Friendly Kittens
Gifts under $50
Price: $40 USD – shop
Active wear headbands handmade with Swarovski crystals! The perfect gift for a cat lady who loves to workout. All the designs are made to order and one of a kind. Inspired by bohemian glamour and all things feline, Boho Kitty is a brand that adds a touch of sparkle to everyday life. Oh, I just also happen to be the designer/creator (shameless plug).
Price: $38 – shop
When I was a teenager, I remember getting photo frames and candles for Christmas and hating them. Somehow over the course of getting older, they have become two of my favorite gifts to receive. This Kitten Candle is the Catbird signature scent, created to capture the essence of Brooklyn, NY. A candle made for a girl with attitude and confidence.
Price: SALE $20 USD – shop
I am such a fan of White Moose and have ordered from them on several occasions. I own a gold cat (not this design) that sits on top of some magazines in my apartment. I love that the designs are eclectic and the metallic gold is right on trend. White Moose designs will bring an unexpected and playful accent to your living room.
The Purrfect Mid Range
Gifts between $100 – $200
BOYS AND ARROWS
Price: SALE $77 + $71 = $148 USD – shop
Animal print is always playful (and sexy) especially on bikinis. I love Boys and Arrows swimwear because they are so flattering on the body. This is gift is great for Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere, or for any cat lady planning a holiday in the heat. Meowwww.
PUSS PUSS MAGAZINE
Price: Roughly $100 USD – shop
I am a huge fan of PUSS PUSS Magazine as viewed in a previous post on Heid & Seek. I also own the whole collection and am absolutely in love with every issue. PUSS PUSS Magazine is a great gift for cat ladies who love art, music, culture and fashion. It is the type of magazine you keep forever.
Kitti Cat Leather Bag
Price: $195 USD – shop
Ted Baker bags are beautifully made and take any outfit to the next level. Even though this crossbody bag has a cat motif, there is still a strong sophistication in its design. This bag is a great gift for the girl who is classy but with a touch of edge. A great accessory to dress up or down.
Fashion Forward Felines
Gifts around $300
Angry Cat Print Iphone 7 Case
Price: $295 USD – shop
In my dreams!!! Unfortunately I could never justify buying this Gucci iPhone 7 case for myself (not to mention I have yet to upgrade from my iPhone 5s), but nevertheless, I’m obsessed. This present would be a great idea when a bunch of besties are looking for a designer gift for one of their cat lady friends. Any fashion forward feline would die over this.
Embellished Cat-Eye Gold-Tone
Price: SALE $312 USD – shop
I tried these sunnies on the other day and was instantly in love. I don’t usually like cat-eye designs but there was something about this particular pair that felt like the perfect statement piece. This is a great gift for a girl who is fashion conscious and loves to add a bit of glam to her everyday get up.
Black Velvet Kitty Flats
Price: SALE $271 USD – shop
Charlotte Olympia shoes are always bold, and her signature kitty design has taken form in a variety of styles. Charlotte Olympia shoes are for a woman who is not afraid to take risks. These black velvet mules are definitely on-trend right now, and would be a great pair of flats to add some style to a casual outfit… think ripped denim jeans and a white cotton tee.
