You’d never forget to get your fur baby a Christmas gift, but not just any Christmas gift for cats will do. Cats are individuals with distinct personalities and preferences.

To help you pick the purr-fect Christmas gift for your cat this holiday season, we’ve rounded up a range of gift ideas. From cat shelves and cat scratching posts to cat beds and even a cat harness, you’re sure to find one that fits your unique feline friend.

Not bad and my cats enjoy them!
Overall decent quality and easy to install. We've had ours for a couple of months now and they are holding out well, even with a rather tenacious kitty. The more relaxed cat out of the two likes hanging out on them as well. Only tiny downside is that you might have to bend the ends of the leaf things to keep them from falling if you have a hyperactive cat. It is a very simple and easy fix though. I definitely recommend!
How I love my cat
She loves it It wasn't really hard to put together she can't wait to eat that leaves hahaha I hope she gets some exercise lol
AJs new man cave!
These are well-built and easy to install. My cat loves him and his able to finally chew on the fake flowers without being yelled that!

I love this item and so does my cat Precious, I no longer have to worry about her scratching the furniture or door frames anymore. Thank you Precious' momma Sharon C.
New fan favorite
Both of my cats went nuts for this. It was an adorable, festive addition to the apartment for the holiday season. No regrets for this purchase.
Nice Scratching Post
Got 4 of these Holiday scratching posts for our cats (we have a few). Chewy really had a great deal on these around Thanksgiving. They are very easy to assemble in under 5 minutes. The cat's really like to play with the hanging ball and love to give the star on top a good wack! If you have taller/bigger cat's they do have to arch their back a little more for scratching. For extra stability I usually wedge part of the platform under a piece of furniture. The cat's you see in my pictures are on the smaller size, like 8 pounds or less.

Sturdy structure and fabric. Long lasting cat tree
Bought one of these back in March 2020, I still have it and it's in perfect shape other than a small piece of carpet shredded on the bottom corner of the base. Had to rewrap 4 of the sisal rope poles once a couple of months ago due to normal wear and tear but I've only done that once since the entire time I've had it and I have three cats. It's sturdy and held up amazingly well against my three hyper clawing kitties. Buying another one to add to another room and will buy again if I ever need another one.
72 inch Cat tree
My cats love this, they especially like the highest level I am very pleased with the item. The only thing was a missing bolt for the upper condo. It is staying in place with the smaller bolt in the hole, but would be more stable with the right one. Over all, I recommend this if you have more than one cat.
Best cat tree I have ever had
I have 3 crazy, high energy cats that use their cat tree constantly. Usually they last around 6-8 months because of how unstable and ratty they end up looking. This one has lasted over a year and 4 months and I would keep using it but I've already moved it to a different apartment once and I'm moving again and I'd rather just buy a new one. I honestly think this could last another 4 months AT LEAST. Obviously the cord/rope is tattered a lot, but it's still so sturdy I've just been rotating it every so often so they focus on scratching different areas. Nothing is so tattered that I can see cardboard or whatever would be underneath it....

Great Quality & Potency
Product arrived in a plastic Tupperware within a plastic bag. This is my first time using this brand and silver vine, but I am very satisfied with the results. The catnip and silver vine mix was well-sized, and it has not been dusty so far. My adult cat very much enjoys the mix, so it seems to be potent and work well. No signs of irritation or allergy. Price seems reasonable for the product, too!
Cat loves it
The container came in squished with about a 1" crack because it was packed with litter and no cardboard spacer. Luckily, not much spilled. My cat absolutely loves this combination. I also have a bag of regular catnip from another company and he prefers this one. I have the container near my computer and no matter how quietly I try to pick it up, he'll wake from a deep sleep and sit bolt upright. lol
All my cats love this and even my Coon Hound. Of course my dog waits until her kitty siblings are finished then she goes and rolls in the remaining nip on the floors. It is so very cute when she tries to join her siblings.

Great for the price!
Works great, came with extra batteries! The laser button was a little stiff at first, it took some fiddling but I got it to work. The cats love it, but we can't play with it unless the dog is outside because she's terrified of it, LOL! But all in all, a great product for the price.
My cat loves laser lights. This one comes with batteries in it plus a replacement set so you don't have to buy new ones or a new laser pointer because button batteries are Not cheep!!
Came with batteries too!
Loved it my dog even played with the red light so much she pushed the cat out of the way to get it
Best for Cats Who Prefer Potty Privacy
Good enough to buy twice
I purchased one of these I think a year ago and just bought a second since I have two cats. They were super easy to put together. Instructions were great. I love the fact that I can put stuff on top of them. You will need to crouch down to open and clean the liter box, but I prefer that to the top opening boxes just because of the counter space that I would lose. The wood feels pretty solid and the hardware is good quality.
Perfect and so nice to look at
This is a must for any cat owner that has limited space. This keeps a large litter box perfectly for our four cats. We keep their food and water bowls on top. Cannot say enough about this
It's perfect !
Big enough for my 15lb cat to go in and out and have enough space to turn around inside to bury the stuff and shake off the litter toes.
Best for Cats Who Wish They Could Catch a Bird
Best toy ever!!!! My cat is like a kitten again..doing rolls and backflips to get the feather she stalks..the attachments are so easy to switch out.. I'd recommend it to anyone
Love this toy!
Very sturdy and flexible at the same time. Once you've firmly attached the wand poles together, you're all set ready for play with your kitty/kitties!
Gets her moving
My senior cat enjoys this very much. She was beginning to show signs of boredom and now we play several times a day .
Best for Cats Who Won’t Tolerate a Dirty Litter Box
How did I live without it?
I love my Litter Robot boxes. It is so nice not to scoop litter. The phone app proves usage info so I know when to empty it.
I can honestly say that I am thrilled with this well made, innovative alternative to a litter box and wish I had made this purchase years ago. It took a total of five minutes to get it up and ready to use. One of our cats jumped in the first day and the other two are still checking it out but I know they will make the transition soon. For hygiene purposes for both humans in the house and especially for the cats this is the only way to go! Once you see the quality of this system and witness it's operation it is much easier to accept why it costs what it does.
Cat Love it. Huge timesaver
I have 4 cats and would have to scoop their 5 litterboxes constantly. I bought this and I love it. The cats all took to using it right away and my youngest cat is obsessed with watching it spin. I am so glad I bought it and am seriously debating getting a 2nd one. I will say litter does occasionally stick to the sides, but that's an easy fix and has only happened twice.

It's a great harness for tiny puppies!
It fit my very tiny puppy really well. Unfortunately when I put it on her, I left it a tad too big and she got it in her mouth and chewed it, just about broke it. It's not the harness, she just has very sharp puppy teeth.
Love how it looks on my cat, and it doesn't pull on there neck , stays on great too, just a little hard to get over the head.
Harness for cat
Not bad harness for my Thor. He has not tried to escape it yet. I don't think he can. Works well so far.
Best for Cats Who Want Their Own Cat Cave
I purchased this for a new to me 12 year old cat who likes to hide. He loves it and is very roomy for him. He is 10 lbs. Will be purchasing another one for our other kitty who like it also.
Cats love it!
I was looking for a cave like bed for one of my cats who likes to sleep under the bed occasionally. She likes to be closer to the floor when she sleeps. She immediately loved it... but... my older, territorial cat wouldn't let it happen for her. He fell in love with it too. Right away I ordered another one so that both of my kitties will be happy. It has been shipped and we are waiting. My only concern is keeping it clean. It says hand washable but I don't see it as being simple. I put one of their small kitty blankets in it to lay on to keep it clean longer. The bed I have right now is a medium and fits my older 11 lb cat...
A picky boy’s sanctuary!
Finally a cat bed my boy will actually use! I was shocked that he immediately got in it and took a nap as soon as I took it out of the package. If your cat likes boxes and soft things, but hasn’t taken to any traditional cat beds, this is definitely worth a shot! It is clearly high quality, thick, just as pictured. Hopefully my picky, fickle cat will keep using it. He seems to like having the edge of the opening to rest his head on— soft but supportive. Glad I went for it!
Best for Cats Who Like to Play Hide-and-Seek
harpers favorite toy ever
My cat is obsessed w this tunnel she plays in it by herself or uses it to hide before attacking the fishing rod I'm waving around. Just got this week so far no damage which is very impressive with how many hours of play we have already had!!!
MultiCat and Dog Home: LOVE
My cats love it! It's the most engaging tunnel(s) we've had yet. Our roomie who is a dog loves it too! Easy to clean, assemble, and disassemble. Pretty cool that it has velcro connectors to add more tunnels :)
I got this for our 5 8 week old kittens and they love it. The only thing is that it’s so lightweight they will start out in one place,and get to playing,and will end up across the room while still inside. Will definitely be looking at getting more toys for them.
Best for Cats Who Walk the Catwalk
Fits perfectly and very well made. My girl loves it. Heavy duty Velcro closing so no worries about it coming apart.
I was surprised and loved how the dress closes in the front. Plus, the "velvet" and poofy sleeves is adorable. Chewy has a great clothing line.
Shayla On New Years Eve
As a pet parent, what I love about Chewy is their wide selection of clothes for pets that is very affordable. I really enjoy shopping for my Shayla. With the wide selection of dresses Chewy has, my Shayla looks like a little princess, and the price is always right.
Best for Cats Who Like to Drink From the Sink
Stops kitten from splashing water out onto floor
We can finally leave the cat alone with his water! He was digging all the water out of his bowl which is unsanitary, a walking hazard for us, and limiting for himself and the other cat from getting enough water. The water drips onto a shield so the kitten tried to paw it unsuccessfully one or twice and then quit. It's heavy enough when full to minimum level that a 4-month old Maine Coon doesn't knock it over.
My cats would rarely drink from their bowl, preferring the tub where the faucet drips. I bought this fountain and they definitely enjoy it and drink more water. It’s quiet and easy to maintain. Great purchase!
My 3 cats really like the fresh water. They seem to be drinking more water which the vet said that all animals need fresh water

Wicked good turkey dinner!
Oh my! There is no bad Temptations flavor, and this one is easily the fans' favorite! This clowder's New Year's Resolution is to convince the good people at Temptations Treats to produce this flavor year round!
My cats love the Temptations Classic Holiday Dinner Turkey and Sweet Potato Flavor cat treats!!! I love spoiling them for the holidays and this was the perfect way to do that. They are happy kitties!!!

Smoothing things out
Attempting to introduce a kitten to my 11 year old cats was not going as expected. The addition of diffuser made an instant difference, brought the heat down several degrees.
Been using Feliway for many many years
This is a great product! I've had cats all my life and tried this for a territory marking problem when it was first introduced. I was hooked! I use the diffuser in various parts of my apartment (I used one for each room when I had a big house) and the spray made hurricane evacuations much less stressful. This cat lady highly recommends it!
My cats calmed down and my older gal is grooming herself again. My vet uses these at her clinic and recommended it. I am so happy I tried it.

DNA panel for kitties
I bought this as a gift for my daughter who has three "rescue" cats. We've used the Wisdom Panel for dogs for our own two rescue "poodle/terrier mixes" It was fascinating to see the breeds of which they were a part. My daughter can't wait for the results for her three girls.
Fun to find out
It was a cool test to see where our shelter cat came from and to get information about health/traits. We didn't learn anything surprising, but it was entertaining nonetheless. Collecting the sample was a bit of a process, but I made my cat into a purrito, took the swabs, then gave her a treat.
Comprehensive with detailed explanations
This started as just plain curiosity and developed into so much more. I work in the pet industry, and have been witnessing the increasing longevity of pets lifespans. Having reviewed test results from other vendors, I was completely blown away by the extensive, in depth results we received for our cat. Every piece of information telescopes into detailed origins and explanations. You can absorb just the percentage of your pets breed DNA representation, or you can follow an entire prospective lineage tree of where those breeds derived. There are also very detailed descriptions of any genetic predispositions. I was thrilled with the level of...
Best for Cats Who Are on Santa's Naughty List
The doggies were all happy & kept them on all day. They are thin, however that is perfect for our three chihuahuas. They were all individually wrapped. Very happy with the purchase
So Cute and Appropriate
Got this for my new Shiba-Dach puppy. This fits her personality. The scarf is very cute and well made. The size I ordered was too big for Molly now and I had to roll the top which hud some of the printing.
Adorable and good size
This handkerchief is adorable and fits our corgi sized dog well. It has enough length so that it’s easy to tie.
