2014-12 12 Days of Giving

A few years ago we got our first “inside cat” and everyone started calling me a “crazy cat lady”. Apparently I post too many cat photos to Instagram. Whatever! 

If you have a “crazy cat lady” in your life, check out this handy dandy gift guide I put together for the holidays, complete with links to where you can buy (these are affiliate links)! Trust me, cat ladies know what other cat ladies want. You'll score big with the cat lady if you get her any (or all!) of these cat-centric gifts:

9 Crazy Cat Lady Gifts by Jennifer Priest hydrangeahippo COLLAGE 

[Tweet “Check out this awesome Crazy Cat Lady gift guide from @hydrangeahippo on the #GiftGuide Blog Hop today #12daysofgiving #Crazycatlady #crafts”]

1. Crafty Crap Cigar Box

This metal cigar box is adorable and I already got two of them for Crafty Cat Lady friends on my gift list this year!! This doesn't have anything to do with cats other than the cat on the lid holding a glue gun and the surprise cat INSIDE the lid telling you to get all DIY with yourself. If the Crazy Cat Lady doesn't make crafts (really, we all make crafts) then she can fill this with cat nip treats for kitty. Get your CRAFTY CRAP CIGAR BOX on Amazon for a song ($5 less than I paid at a local gift shop!)


2.  Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure

The bonus is that this comes with a “wide-eyed” look. I think the cat in the hair is perfection. Seriously, she and the cats will love this – they can chew on her face when they get bored.  Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure Set.


3.  Crazy Cat Lady Sweatshirt

This shirt actually looks pretty rad if you pair it with legwarmers and Reebok hightops. Totally 80's man! Bonus point for being heather grey which is the #1 clothing color for disguising cat hair. They obviously did their research before making these… Skip N' Whistle Women's Crazy Cat Lady Raglan Sweatshirt Medium Grey


4.  A Classy Coffee Table Book

I first saw this book at Target and had to have it. This book is small enough to put inside of a stocking and you can slip a gift card to Petsmart inside the cover for your fave cat lady: I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats

5.  Cat Lady Gate

Because its important to block out everyone but the cats. That's right Fido, stay back. Keep the husband and the kids behind the gate and let the cat through. Extra Wide Walk Thru Gate, for cats of course.


6. Make a Cat Scrapbook

Maybe you're not crafty so the next best thing is to make a photo book of the cat lady's cats! Pull her photos off of Facebook and Instagram and make her a sweet compilation of her cats using a photo book service like Snapfish. She'll love you forever. Snapfish Photo Books


7. Cat Butt Magnets

Who doesn't love a little bit of cat butt? Your cat lady does! Her cats are always putting their butts in her face so she will love to see cat butt when she's cooking up kitty kibble in the kitchen too. You're welcome. Kikkerland Cat Butt Magnets, Set of 6 (MG53)

8. Celebrate the CatLady

Often misunderstood, this book discusses the sophistication behind cat ladies everywhere. She'll love that you see her in such a good light, cat hair and all. Cat Lady Chic – check out this review on HausPanther.com


9.  You Can't Go Wrong With Jewelry

And the fact it is cat themed is a BONUS! Check out this Sterling Silver Diamond Mystique 18in Cat Necklace, which would look great with cat hair covered jeans + t-shirt or a little black cat hair dress.


I hope you're all prepared to make this holiday the bestest ever for the cat lady in your life!!! By the way, my address is 9 Lives Way, Catville, CA 99999 … teeheee. If you're into virtual gifts, make your cat lady friend a digital holiday card with the Lego Minifigure Holiday Card Maker
