As a dedicated cat lover myself, I can tell you personally that finding holiday gifts for cat lovers is one of my favorite things ever. There are few things I like more than an item with unnecessary cat ears or whiskers on it. I mean, why drink out of a regular coffee mug when I could drink out of one that makes it look like I have half a cat face, you know? As such, I know that if you have a cat lover in your life, they will fall in love with any of the below gift options immediately.
Any of these would make a sweet and thoughtful present for the person you know who is obsessed with cats (and we all know at least one). Whether you want to get home necessities for your friend, a piece of clothing, or a cute accessory for them to wear, there are tons of options here that would work. Just a warning, though: if you really love cats, you're going to have a hard time getting through this without pulling out your credit card and ordering something for yourself. Resist temptation, and add them to your holiday wish list instead. Check out these 21 purr-fect gifts for the cat lover in your life (because, come on — how can I pass up the opportunity for a nice cat pun?).
1. A Cat Phone Case

Cat Headphones , $40, Urban Outfitters
Headphones are a gift you can't really go wrong with, because they're even nice to get when you already have them. We could all use at least one backup set. These are even better than every other pair because OMG cat ears. Yassss.
3. A Mug

There are lots of cat mugs out there, but this one is my favorite because it's different than the others. Lots of sleeping cats plus coffee or tea equals a big win.
4. Cat Slippers
Haflinger Cat Slippers , $85, Nordstrom
I personally use slippers as a go-to gift for whenever I don't know what else to get someone, but still want to get them something nice. That's because cozy slippers are the best, and we could all use more than one pair. These have a fun cat design on them that any cat lady would adore.
5. A Onesie
