How to Buy Christmas Gifts for Your Cat

It can be fun shopping for Christmas gifts for your cat. But if you feel completely lost about what to buy, you might find yourself Googling “what to get my cat for Christmas” while in a panic. Don’t stress! Before going out and spending money on items you’re unsure your cat will like, focus on the things you know your cat already loves. For instance, does your cat love catnip? Plenty of toys have catnip tucked away inside, and these toys are generally inexpensive.

If you plan on spoiling your cat with lavish gifts, ensure they are things your cat will surely love, like a cat tree. You know your cat the best, so stick to items you already feel confident in. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with taking a chance on a new type of toy, either. However, don’t spend a ton of money on something you’re unsure of if you’re limited on funds.

The Hepper Catnip Stick Toy will surely be a favorite with your beloved feline. This toy is filled with 100% organic catnip to get your kitty engaged and excited to play.

The simple shape is excellent for teething kittens and adult cats who love to bite and scratch. It comes in pretty colors, including cream, blue, and grey, and it’s made in the USA.

2. Goody Box

The name says it all. A Goody Box comes with a variety of, well, goodies! This particular Goody Box comes with 13 toys, which includes a track toy and a pack of 12 assorted toys, as well as two full-sized treats and a sample of Orijen’s dry kitten food.

You will almost always have fun playing with your cat when using a teaser wand toy. These toys are excellent for engaging your cat to play with you, creating a bonding experience that will last a lifetime. The fabric ribbon is designed to encourage play, and your cat can leap, jump, bat, and pounce, all of which bring out your cat’s natural hunting instincts.

6. Cat Tree

Cat trees offer cats a place to retreat up high that they can call all their own. This Frisco cat tree encourages climbing and provides exercise to help your cat stay physically fit. It comes with three long scratching posts wrapped in sisal rope and built-in toys to bat.

9. Interactive Toy

10. Window Perch

Cats love to look out the window to watch birds, squirrels, and other wildlife. Providing your cat with a window perch gives them a comfy place to lounge undisturbed, especially if you have doggies in the home. Cats love to bask in the sun, and the warmth from the window will appeal to your cat.

11. Cat Shelves

FRISCO Hexagon Wall Mounted Cat Wall Shelf

As we know, cats love to be in high places where they can look down from a safe distance and be on guard, an instinct carried over from their wild ancestors. Installing cat shelves on your wall gives your feline yet another place to retreat for some solitude and relaxation. This cat shelf is easy to install and adds cute yet usable décor to your home. It comes with a removable and washable cushion, and it has a sisal mat on the top for your cat’s scratching needs.

12. Harness and Leash

If you haven’t leash-trained your cat, now may be a good time. Training your cat to walk on a leash allows for outdoor time conducted in a safe and controlled manner. Going on walks with your cat also creates a bonding experience for both you and your cat to enjoy together. All you need is a harness, leash, and patience while your cat gets acclimated to the process.

13. New Collar

Frisco Merry Print Cat Ruffle Collar with Bells

Why not spruce up your cat’s look with a new collar for Christmas? This festive collar adds some holiday cheer, and it looks as cute as a button on a cat. The ruffle design kicks it up a notch, and it’s easy to put on and take off. This collar also has bells on the end of the ruffles to add some jingles to your cat’s step. However, not all cats will like this, so it might be better for a cat that is used to bells being on their collar.

14. Cat Grass

Cat grass is something cats love to nibble on, providing them with vitamins and minerals that aid in hairball control and smooth digestion. Cat grass is different from catnip in that catnip is part of the mint family, and cat grass is normally grown from rye, oats, barley, or wheat seeds. Cat grass is also a safe alternative to having plants around in the home that may be poisonous to cats.

This cat grass kit comes with everything you need to start growing the grass, including a cute planter, organic seed mix, and organic soil to grow it in.

How to Buy Christmas Gifts on a Budget

Christmas can be hectic and stressful, and buying Christmas gifts for your cat may not be a priority when you have so many humans to buy for. However, you can always accumulate gifts throughout the year to give to your cat on Christmas. Typically, pet stores will mark the prices down on Christmas gifts after the season is over, and that is when you can snatch up some great deals.

We hope our list of Christmas gifts helps you find the perfect gifts for your feline. You can’t go wrong with toys and treats, but if you want to kick it up a notch and have the funds to do so, the holidays are an excellent opportunity to replace that old cat bed and collar or even supply your cat with a cat tree. Remember that you know your cat the best, and if you’re on a budget, stick to items you know your cat will enjoy.
