During the holidays I spend more time in the kitchen than I have during the year. Or at least it feels that way. After I’ve done my Christmas baking I’m covered in flour and chocolate and dribbles of batter. But I could change all that with this festive apron:


The apron makes a great hostess gift and is nice enough to wear while giving a dinner party. A steal at $19.95.

You’ll be the belle of the ball at your office Holiday party with this sparkly bracelet/earrings set:

If you prefer jewelry that can be worn year-round, consider this sweet cat charm bracelet:


It features seven fine silver plated pewter cat charms showing cats in various poses and forms, as well as a heart shaped charm that says ” my cat” on one side and has a pawprint on the other. (There are a total of 8 charms).

Got cat? We’ve gotcha covered. This modern fleece jacket is purrfect for the Rocket Cats in your life:

I know how hard it is to find good cat-themed Christmas cards (which is why I make my own). Check out these mod cards:

These cards are professionally printed on 100 lb pure white cover stock and measure 4.25 x 5.5 folded. There are 20 cards and 20 envelopes per package. $35. Click here for more info.

While we’re on the topic of stationery, think of all those thank you cards you’ll have to write if Santa was good to you. Aren’t they more fun to write on when they feature a couple of cute, colorful cats?

Professionally printed on heavy 80 lb. pure white cover stock, these high quality thank you notes measure approximately 3.25 x 4.75 (folded). Each note comes with one coordinating plum envelope as shown. Click here for more info.

Looking for a stunning and unique Christmas ornament? Dig deep into you pockets and check this out:

This is a perfect ornament for a cat person! There are six beaded panels draped over a Christmas bulb with crystal tassels hanging off it. 2 gray striped Tabbys, 2 white fluffy Persians, and 2 Siamese. The ornament cover can be easily slid off so you can switch out the color of the bulb if you like. The panels are made of glass Japanese delica beads woven together with thread.

You may not know this, but my favorite color is pink. So Skeezix and I both flipped over these pale pink Christmas kitty ornaments:

You can buy them in sets or individually. $9.50 for individual hand-sewn ornaments. Click here for more info.

These custom painted ornaments do double duty as ornament and magnet, so you’ll be able to use it long after the holidays have passed.

The size of the finished ornament is just under 2-1/2″ (not including the ribbon) and comes with a silvertone pawprint charm attached to the ribbon. A magnet is attached to the back for using after the holidays. $25. Click here for more info.

Next up, some delightfully whimsical food bowls, customized for your cat!

Just send a clear photo of your cat, showing front paws, chest, tail and face, along with your cat’s eye color and your cat’s name. The back of the piece will be turquoise blue. $35. Click here for more info.

Sitting at the lucky 13 position on our list is a double-sided good-kitty/bad-kitty vintage style pillow:
