Funny Gifts For Cat Lovers -- Cat Lover Gifts

Updated on March 4, 2012

Novelty Gag Gifts For Crazy Cat People

I am a self-described crazy cat lady and am proud of it! My cat, Maya, is like my child (though my husband heartily disagrees) and my life just wouldn't be the same without her.

As much of a crazy cat lady as I am, though, I know cat lovers who are even bigger feline fanatics. One of my friends now has four cats. They drive her up a wall, especially when they meow at five in the morning (this is why I try not to stay over there), but like me, she loves them as if they're her children. Meanwhile, I've met people who've had six cats or even 10 cats! We live in an apartment, so one is enough, but you have to be a crazy cat person is you've got 10 of them.

That said, if you've got some crazy cat people in your life, a great gift idea for them is to give something, well, cat-related. If you really want to make them smile, though, try for a novelty gift. This way, your present will be a little different than the usual cat-related things, such as cat calendars or cat mugs. I have about a billion of them. But give me a Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure and I know that you share my same strange sense of humor!

As with all novelty gag gifts, make sure the person you're giving them to will appreciate it. For instance, you might not want to give a Cat-Opoly board game to your elderly aunt who has 15 cats and serves their food on her finest china. Just sayin'!

But if you have a close friend who's very into felines (like me), chances are, he or she will get a kick out of receiving a crazy cat lady costume.

Here are some ideas for cat lover gifts. Meow!

Here are some more great gifts for cat lovers -- just don't be too surprised if your pal purrs with gratitude!

Toys For Cat Lovers

Cats looove toys. My Maya goes crazy when I get out the laser pointer and also enjoys batting at shoelaces if we dangle them. So it makes sense that crazy cat people would love toys, too.

The aforementioned Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure is hilarious. She comes complete with a robe and six cats (though a true crazy cat lady would probably have more). She just reminds me so much of myself in the morning when I'm drinking coffee in my robe and Maya is perched on the couch behind me. You can also get the crazy cat lady magnetic sculpture set and have yet more cat stuff to play with!

Those cat butt magnets are also adorable. I like to point and laugh at Maya's "fuzz butt," so these are just awesome. There's no denying it: cat butts are cute!

Cat-Opoly is the feline take on Monopoly and looks like it could be a lot of fun. And it makes sense, too, because well, most cats monopolize your home, right?

Finally, there's the Cat-A-Pult Kitty Flinger. This is for those times when someone gets annoyed with their cat, such as when the kitty licks up some of your food. Ewww! Might as well take out your frustrations on fake cats!

Crazy Cat People Clothes

 If you're a crazy cat lady like I am, wear it loud and wear it proud! Don't be ashamed to show off your inner cat-i-ness ... your feline friends will appreciate the shout-out (or would that be "meow out?").

That Crazy Cat Lady Costume is one of the funniest things I've seen. It's just so over-the-top and ridiculous, how can you not laugh? It would make a great gag gift for cat lovers and would be perfect to wear to a Halloween party. Though truth be told, you could probably get away with wearing that robe around the house. The cat hat, on the other hand -- not so much.

Being a crazy cat lover takes practice, so you might as well start 'em off young. If you have a friend who is a cat lover, a great gift would be the Crazy Cat Lady and Crazy Cat Lady In Training infant body suits. Each comes in several colors and is the perfect way to make sure that a baby feels like a member of a family full of crazy cat people.

The Crazy Cat Lady boxer shorts make a funny novelty gift for any cat loving guys in your life. Like my husband. I'm thinking of getting him a pair of these as "punishment" for refusing to acknowledge that our cat is like our baby. If he wears these boxers, he will be forced to remember this fact every day!

Mugs For Cat Lovers

Another great gift idea for cat lovers is to give them a mug. This way, you're letting them know that you appreciate their feline obsession ... but you're doing so with a household item that is very practical.

Take the Crazy Cat Lady Travel Mug. Not only can a cat lover be reminded of his or her interest, but this novelty gag gift can be taken on the road. It's sure to bring a smile whenever the user drinks coffee ... or laps up some milk.

Meantime, the Chester The Cat Teapot obviously isn't a mug, but it's so adorable how the teapot itself is shaped just like a curled-up cat. Any cat lover would like this. Plus, she can pour her tea into her Crazy Cat Lady mug.

The coffee mugs with the cat tail handles are also very cute, especially the way the clever handles blend right into the illustrations of cats. Anyone who uses one of these will immediately be pegged as a cat lover, which is what we cat lovers want!

      I love your ideas, but I must say as a crazy cat lady (with more than 10) I get tired of the cat gifts! Everyone thinks because I love cats I want everything to have cats on it. I already have a bunch of animals! Still love the mugs and peppers shakers though! Great ideas.

      I love that crazy lady costume - if I wore it I may go unnoticed - yes, I too live in NYC. And have been a life long cat adorer. My amazing felines have been a source of great joy and many good laughs.

      Many friends are cat lovers too, so thanks for the gift ideas. I may go with 'Catopoly' - what fun! I love the sneakers and would like those for myself. What a great shopping list.

      Thank for a very very very necessary hub!
