Shopping for others can be easy and pleasurable or stressful and time-consuming. It often depends on the sex of the recipient and how well you know them. However, shopping for a cat lover is almost always a breeze. Cat lovers have a special, sometimes called “crazy”, affinity for felines. Selecting the right gift for a cat lover starts by choosing something with a cat design on it. In many cases, that is the only guideline you need. Something, anything, with a cat image on it will satisfy most cat lovers.
However, the range of items with a cat design involved is quite wide these days. You can easily find almost anything with a cat flare to it, from apparel to kitchenware to art to jewelry. With so many alternatives out there, how can you select the right gift for the cat-loving person on your list? Do not despair. The following tips will put you well on your way to becoming the friend or family member that gives the best!
To reiterate, the first step in pleasing a cat lover is to make sure the gift you select has something to do with cats. Your next step is to consider what you know about the person for whom you are shopping. You may know little or you may be quite familiar with their interests. If you do not know much, think about how you can find out more. If you have a mutual friend or relative, it will not be difficult to do a little research about the tastes and interests of the person you are shopping for. Even if you drew his or her name from a hat at the office and you have only occasionally passed in the hallway, there is going to be someone that knows your gift recipient better than you do.
Even just simple observation skills can give you hints. Does she wear jewelry? Is she a decorative scarf enthusiast? Does he carry a gym bag on a daily basis, indicating that he is an exercise nut? Is he known around the office for betting on every football game or other sport? Maybe your Pollyanna is the person who always brings those yummy baked goods to the office or family get-together. Perhaps your friend is known for being a collector of figurines or artwork or mugs? With good observation skills and a little research, you can most often come up with a perfect cat-themed gift.
In the jewelry category, there is an extensive line of cat-themed whimsical and fine jewelry. Gold, silver, colorful, black and white…you can find any style and any price range. There are a large number of fantastic artists designing cat jewelry.
Some of these same artists show their work on scarves, art prints, mugs, calendars, dolls, figurines, totes, plates, clothing, clocks, stationery…the list truly is endless. You can find a cat-themed item for any room of the house and for any hobby, interest, or occupation.
