It seems like Valentine’s Day sneaks up on us every year, which can make finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones difficult. If you’re looking for a present shortly before the holiday, try to place any orders at least a week in advance, just to ensure that the gift arrives on time. If you’re planning a present months in advance, you’ll walk into the holiday well-prepared.
If you’re in the market for a gift for a friend whose Valentine is their cat, you’re in luck. We compiled a list of the best Valentine’s Day gifts that you can get for your cat-loving friend, regardless of your budget. There’s a gift here for everyone!
Top 10 Valentine’s Day Gifts
1. Cat Beds
- Our Pick: Hepper Nest Bed
We all know that cats love to snuggle into bowls, baskets, and boxes, and the Hepper Nest Bed is perfectly designed to appease cats. This bowl-shaped cat bed has a Sherpa fleece lining that can be removed and washed. The material of the bed itself is a soft-touch molded foam that is covered with fabric on both sides, so it’s sturdy but also cozy. The wide lip of the bed provides the perfect spot for a cat to rest their head and still keep an eye on things in the room. This Valentine’s Day, this bed will be the perfect gift for your cat or for a cat-loving friend’s cat.
2. Cat Trees
Consider giving your friend a gift that will please their cat while improving the look of their home. The Mau Lifestyle Cento 46-in Modern Wooden Cat Tree & Condo is the perfect Valentine’s gift for this purpose. This attractive cat tree is made with a modern, minimalistic design and unique accents, like real tree branches, woven baskets, and a cat condo covered in faux fur. The cushions inside the baskets are cozy but also washable. It also includes two dangling pom-poms and both tree branch posts have a section covered in jute for scratching.
3. Hand Towels
For a friend with a cat and a dog, they’ll love the Mud Pie Funny Beware Embroidered Tea Towel for Valentine’s Day. This colorful and cute tea towel features an embroidered cat and dog, as well as beautiful flowers and tassels. It also has a funny quote that your friend will love: “Beware of the Dog. The Cat is Shady Too.”
This 14” x 21” tea towel is made from cream-colored natural cotton, giving it an organic look and feel. If you’re looking for a silly but pretty gift that makes a statement, this is the perfect option to liven up your Valentine’s home.
- Our Pick: Pet House Fresh Citrus Candle
There are few things that pet owners love more than a house that smells good, especially cat owners who are constantly having to deal with litter boxes. If your Valentine loves a fresh-smelling home, the Pet House Fresh Citrus Candle will brighten their day.
This bright-smelling candle radiates the scents of oranges and lemons, as well as a hint of vanilla sugar. These candles are hand-poured in the U.S.A., and they’re made with plant-based wax and a cotton wick, giving them a clean burn. They’re free of dyes, paraffin, phthalates, parabens, and formaldehyde. Your friend can expect to get up to 60 hours of burn time from their new gift.
5. Signs and Pictures
- Our Pick: New View Had Me at Meow Box Sign
One of the home décor items that has become very popular in the last few years has been signs of all kinds. For your Valentine who loves cats, the New View Had Me at Meow Box Sign is a lovely home décor gift. This sign has a white, wooden backing with the words, “You had me at meow,” on it. The word “meow” is brought into full focus through large, all-capital lettering in matte gold. It’s made to be freestanding, so it can be placed on any surface instead of requiring wall space and holes.
While being a cat lady was an insult for many years, many people have begun to playfully embrace the phrase, happily claiming it to show their love for their cats. The Pet Shop by Fringe Studio Cat Lady Ceramic Coaster is a great Valentine’s Day gift for your friend who proudly considers themselves a cat lady. This ceramic coaster has an off-white background with red trim around the edges of the circle. On the inside are the word “cat” in bright, big lettering and the word “lady” in vibrant gold.
Life with cats can be less than glamorous sometimes, and the book, “Sorry I Barfed on Your Bed (and Other Heartwarming Letters from Kitty)” is a fun way to celebrate the ups and downs of cat ownership. This book includes fun letters written “by” cats to their owners, as well as tons of full-color photographs, all to give you a “cat’s eye view” of the world. This may not sound like a very romantic Valentine’s Day gift—probably because it’s not—but this is a fantastic gift to give to a friend with a great sense of humor.
8. Coffee Mugs
- Our Pick: Fringe Studio Stoneware Mug
Most people love a nice cup of coffee in the morning, and the Fringe Studio Stoneware Mug is a gift that is the perfect combination of functional and fun to give to your Valentine. This mug features a glossy color glaze across most of the mug, while the lower portion of the mug is exposed stoneware. The design on the mug features a cat sitting in a box with the phrase, “Because, cats” underneath it. This one is pretty self-explanatory to people with cats, since sometimes cats do odd things simply because, well, they’re cats.
- Our Pick: Pet Friends Cutout Cat Drop Earrings
Gaudy earrings aren’t the best Valentine’s Day gift for everyone, but the Pet Friends Cutout Cat Drop Earrings will make a great gift for your friend who loves statement jewelry. These gold earrings are shaped to look like cat faces, with small, green stones as the cats’ eyes. They have a drop design, and they’re a great way to finish off an outfit, whether your friend is going to the park or to work. The lever back makes these earrings easy to get on and off, making them a convenient staple for your Valentine.
- Our Pick: Tribe Personalized Socks
The Tribe Personalized Socks are available in pink and blue, and they’re made to fit up to a men’s size 11 foot. They can be customized with a photo of a pet, so you can get your Valentine a pair of socks that will show off their favorite feline. Tribe will crop the photo you send in to only feature a face, so make sure to send in a clear picture of your friend’s cat’s face. Pictures will be edited for best lighting and are printed in high resolution, ensuring the picture on the socks is high quality. These socks are extremely soft and comfy, and they’re made from recycled plastic bottles, so they’re sustainable as well.
While there may not be very many romantic gifts on this list to win over your crush, if you’ve got a friend or family member who loves their cat above all else, there’s definitely something fun for them here. Many of these gifts are functional on top of being fun, so you don’t have to worry about adding to your friend’s clutter. Just remember to place your order at least a few days in advance of the holiday to ensure your friend’s gift arrives on time!
