Collectable Himalayan Cat Souvenirs - Gifts for Himalayan Cat Lovers

Updated on August 18, 2015

Himalayan Cat Breed

The Himalayan cat is a cat breed that is sort of a cross between a Persian cat and a Siamese cat, although it is most similar to the Persian on exception of the point coloration. Himalayan cats is a very thick coated cat with long hair; the breed comes in a variety of color coats to include blue point, chocolate point, red, seal, cream, and lilac point, as well as tabby and tortoiseshell point.

The breed has a round body with short legs, so they can't jump as high as more slender, long- legged cats, but they can still jump about 7 feet into the air, which is still pretty high.

Himalayan cats are not only beautiful, but they are also very sweet, intelligent, and social cats. The breed is known for their calm and gentle nature, making them great indoor companions, but that doesn't mean you should ignore their playful side. Himalayan cats will run and play fetch with paper crumples or balls. These cats love to be groomed, but the feature that makes them even more favored among cat fanciers is that they are very affectionate.

Just be careful and have your Himalayan cat checked for the gene that causes Polycystic kidney disease. Generally, breeders will have their breeding cats tested before breeding in attempts to reduce the spread of the gene, but that doesn't mean that all breeders are responsible in spaying or neutering cats that have the gene. Just keep in mind that the gene that causes PKD is common among Himalayan cats.

The Himalayan cat breed is a very popular breed of cat, whether in its purebred form or in a mixed form, as even mixes will carry over the friendly and social nature of the Himalayan cat. So, you'll find that once someone has a Himalayan or a mixed Himalayan cat, they're probably going to be stuck on the cat breed. For these people, items that feature their favorite cat breed make wonderful gifts.

Figurines and statutes make great trinket gifts. You can find some porcelain and ceramic Himalayan cat figurines that are collector's pieces, which make great gifts for someone who collects Himalayan cat souvenirs.

Cheap Himalayan Cat Gifts

If you're looking to buy a cheap Himalayan cat gift, then you don't have to look too hard, on eBay you can find tons of great gifts and products available. The most popular cheap gift is probably going to be a basic key chain or a coffee mug, but your definition and price range that describes what "cheap" is, may vary from another person's idea of cheap.

Generally, key chains may cost anywhere from $5 to $15, and coffee mugs can cost about $10 and up. But, again, there are many products that you can purchase for cheap other than these two. Just check out eBay to see what is available within your price range that features the Himalayan cat breed.

You can find them expressing all the normal and popular Himalayan cat poses and personalities, which make them great gifts. Depending on the rarity, size, and artist, you may find that the collector's plates can be marked as high as $50 or more, but the mass produced ones are much cheaper.

Otherwise, you can find Himalayan license plate holders. These are pretty popular gifts, as well. They definitely feature the love of a cat breed for anyone to see.

Personalized gifts are always a great choice because it shows someone that you're paying attention. You can have just about anything personalized, whether you want personalized address labels that feature Himalayan cats, a picture, key chain, license plate, shirt, hat, or bag.

There are many options that you can choose from; you just have to look around before you make your final purchase.

Depending on the product and the amount of personalization that you want to have done, the price will vary. Sometimes you can get better deals is the vendor or seller that has the product can do the personalization as well as sell you the product, so keep that in mind.
