UPDATED FOR 2021

Below is just a small smattering of inexpensive gifts for cat lovers in your life.  Perfect as teacher gifts, Secret Santa presents, holiday stocking stuffers, or hostess gifts, please browse the selection below.  There is no more appreciated gift to a cat loving friend than one which showcases that affection. Maybe you’ll want to buy an extra or two to keep on hand for a thoughtful last-minute gift.

Many of these would also be quite charming as “thank you” gifts to your local shelter workers.  They work hard, often for low pay, because of their love for animals – why not get them a special treat as a token of appreciation?

All the inexpensive gifts for cat lovers listed below are available through Etsy.  I have also chosen items that will ship relatively quickly so as not to disappoint a recipient due to late arrival.  All sellers have ratings of at least 4.5 stars.

I have also been careful not to list any strictly holiday gifts, so that you can return to this guide anytime you need inexpensive gifts for cat lovers.
