Easy & Thoughtful Holiday Gift Basket for Cats

This past summer our family adopted the cutest little white and peach colored cat. She was so friendly in the shelter and kept on high-fiving me through the cage. I knew she would be perfect for our family, or so I thought. We named her Milkshake and brought her home.
Our little Milkshake was the perfect cat at first, but she soon became very protective of me. She wouldn’t let me interact with my kids and she started to tease the dog. Eventually, she started attacking my kids for no reason and caused some minor injuries. It was heartbreaking taking her back to the shelter but it had to be done.
Now, we just have one cat in our immediate family and his name is Greyson. He has been my Mom’s companion for 3 years and has kept her on her toes. He is pretty laid back but since he is a senior cat he is set in his ways.
Greyson loves to explore and be nosey.
He loves rubs around his neck and his underbelly.
Treats are his favorite and he will do some dances for them.
This pretty kitty also loves a clean litter box. He is super particular about his litter being fresh, clean, and sifted right after he uses the box.
My Mom might have spoiled him with this, but it works out for them both in the freshness department.
Since my Mom is obsessed with fresh scents, she is always looking for the next best litter. She is a Tidy Cats person but is always willing to try new scents and formulations.
Greyson totally approves of this too! The most recent variety she is trying out is Tidy Cats with Glade Tough Odor Solutions. We were able to purchase a 40 lb box of Tidy Cats with Glade Tough Odor Solutions and save $3 at Sam’s Club. This litter is clumping which is a must for cat owners to make litter box cleanup a breeze.
Did you know you can also shop online at Sam’s Club? We had our litter shipped and it was here before we knew it!! I love that you can shop from the comfort of your own home without heading in-store. This makes thing super simple–especially this hectic time of year.
My Mom is really loving this litter because it
Since we are in the middle of the glorious holiday season, I wanted to feature an Easy & Thoughtful Holiday Gift Basket for Cats. Since I had to start from scratch with our Milkshake, I know most of the things both a cat, and cat owner can appreciate.
I didn’t opt to include food in mine because every cat’s dietary needs are different, but I did include some staples and some suggestions in case you were thinking about making a cat gift basket this holiday season.
Cat Gift Basket Filler Ideas:
- Litter Box as the gift basket base
- Litter- Check out Tidy Cats Glade Litter by Purina-available at Sam’s Club.
- Litter Scoop
- Litter liners
- Cat scratching post or pads
- Cat Toys
- Cat Treats
- Cat Collar
- Cat foods bowls
- Cat brush
- Cat bed or blanket -even though they will probably sleep wherever their pretty little selves want to.
- Cat food-only if you know the cat’s preference and dietary needs
- Cat nail clippers
- Cat spray to prevent them from scratching certain areas
- Flea & Tick treatment if they go both indoors and outdoors
- Catnip spray

This would be a great gift idea for a family that has just adopted a pet. Or for a child that will be getting a kitten or cat for Christmas
Liz Mays says
Aww, those cat gifts are going to be super handy and plenty of fun. The litter box and cat litter should be key parts of any cat gift basket!
Annemarie LeBlanc says
That sure looks like a nice gift basket for cat parents. My nephew has a cat that is huge! I am going to send him a gift basket like this next week. I am sure he’ll be very grateful.
What a cute idea for a cat lover :) It’s so fun to put together thoughtful little gift baskets!
Kerrie Mendoza says
I have a couple of friends in mind for this! They would love this! think this is purrfect!
Kathleen Bailey says
We don’t currently have a cat because my second daughter has allergies but we have a “porch kitty” that lives in the neighbourhood and loves to come visit our porch and get pets. We even bought treats and a toy to play with her with. I think you covered everything that a cat would need.
What a great idea for a cat gift basket. I don’t know what we would do without clumping litter. I remember that the regular stuff was so hard to clean when I was young. I didn’t know there was a spray to deter scratching. I need some of that for my cat.
My kids want to get a cat. Such fun pets, beautiful cat.

I love everything in your basket! This is such a great idea!
My daughter would totally love this as a Christmas gift for her cats! She has three. I think I might try making her one like this for Christmas for her babies
Gervin Khan says
Wow, these cat gifts are so cute. I will definitely share this with my friends as she own a cat and I am sure she will get one for her pet.
You have such beautiful cats! And I love the idea of putting together a cat gift box in a litter box. So genius!
Cat Tree UK says
That is a fantastic idea! I am sure many people would love a cat gift box once a month!
