I’m all about the stocking stuffer. I go to sleep on Christmas Eve, and the next morning my fuzzy red sock is crammed with a seemingly infinite amount of little treasures. At my house, we wrap every single stocking stuffer, even if it’s a pack of gum. That might seem silly to some, but it totally extends the present-opening experience. Within the mystery stocking is a collection of wee mystery packages. The whole business is so mysterious. Just like Santa.
In addition to the candy, pens, notepads, and more candy that land in my stocking on Christmas morning, I always have at least a few kitty-themed trinkets. Score! Santa really knows me.
Here are 10 fun, cat-themed items you might want to ask Santa to slide into your stocking this holiday season.
What says “fresh air” better than a cat in a cone of shame? The silly folks at Archie McPhee have done it again with this 4-and-a-half-inch-tall kitty that hangs from a car’s rearview mirror. A commute buddy that inspires guilt and suffering! Well, he’s pretty cute.
Who needs a pinecone air freshener when you can have a cat-cone one?

Sock It to Me offers a wide variety of whimsical goodies, including these It’s Raining Cats socks. Everyone knows most cats don’t like to get wet, so carrying an umbrella makes perfect sense, right? Also, who doesn’t need more cat socks?

Another Animal Rescue Site find, this silicone diffuser looks like a kitten enjoying a hot tub inside a warm cup of tea — else he’s trying to climb out of the cup. But either way, how can you resist? And remember — with every Animal Rescue Site purchase, you fill shelter pets’ bellies!
Triple T Studios features some of the most charming products, and these big-eyed cat coin purses are right on the money. No worries — these kitties will have no trouble keeping an eye or two on your sweet moolah. Plus, there’s a handy zipper closure just in case.
