There’s one thing that cat parents and admirers love more than cats and that’s…well, nothing, to be perfectly honest — but cat-themed gifts run a close second. That’s especially true when the gifts are unassailably chic, clever, and easy on the eyes. Good news: all the items below fit the bill. Whether you’re shopping for a cat lover in your life or splurging on yourself, these cat-themed picks are all you need for a perfect holiday season.

Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)

Without a doubt the most decadent item in this entire gift guide, the price varies based on what you want customized — anything from a clutch, box, or tray, to coasters, a lighter, a hand mirror, and more — and the complexity of your design. It’s true handmade couture with designer Edie Parker’s signature combination of luxury and whimsy. The entire process is 100 percent custom; you work directly with Edie’s team and choose the colors, design, fonts, everything, and they make it happen. It’s a unique and wonderful way to celebrate your unique and wonderful cat.

This thick and luxurious cashmere sweater doesn’t have cats on it or anything like that, but just look at it! Doesn’t it feel like a cat parent’s sweater? The colors, the pattern, the fit — it all just screams “cat person.” I mean, come on — can’t you imagine someone sitting by a fire, reading a book in this sweater with a lovely little tabby curled up beside them, nestled snugly in its cashmere softness? Also, I can’t help but feel like this sweater would actually benefit from a sprinkling of kitty glitter (a.k.a. cat fur). I don’t know why — I just do. It’s the kind of sweater that wants to be owned by someone who is owned by a cat. It just is.

Commemorate the special love you have for your little fur ball with a custom photo shoot in your home, facilitated by the wonderful BriAnne Wills. Sessions take between one and two hours and result in five to 10 fully retouched photos of you and your cat(s) and a special bonus solo photo of each of your feline friends. Wills’s services are only available to women and non-binary cat people in the New York City area (Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens), and all of your cats must be rescued or adopted in order to qualify. Wills also offers a sliding scale for BIPOC clients in need.
