Cat Mum / Cat Dad Mug & Coaster Set

 Cat Mum & Dad Mug and Coaster Sets

If you know the colour of their favourite cat, this combo makes a thoughtful and practical gift. 

Seasonal Accessories - Gloves, Scarves, Socks

Faux fur fingerless gloves, camel

All incredibly popular in our York shop - plenty of people buying for themselves, as well as for gifting.


Cats on the moon suncatcher

This pretty suncatchers can transform a room on a sunny day. A well-priced, easy to post gift, that will bring years of pleasure.

Calendar and/or Diary


Often avoided as gifts for fear of getting "the wrong one". In our experience, cat lovers are pretty flexible - if it has cats in it, it's probably OK! That said, playing it safe with an "artist-led" calendar may give the best result. Our choice for a good "all-rounder" calendar and diary would be Anne Mortimer. 

Gemstone Cat to Match Birthstone Colour*


Very popular in our shop, across all age ranges. Crystals and gemstones are "on trend" partly, perhaps, as a result of an increased focus in the West on mind/body/spirit/mental wellbeing. They might not have a practical purpose, but they are definitely "cute", and make a nice gift.

If you like this idea, but can't see exactly what you want, try our sister brand, The Lucky Cat Shop.

* except August, which should be green, for Peridot

Spiced Pomegranate Feline Candle

 Spiced Pomegranate Feline Candle

A quality candle, with a festive scent, prettily wrapped and ready to gift! Success guaranteed, if your recipient is also owned by a black cat.

Gift Card for The Cat Gallery

If you're still unsure, how about a gift card for The Cat Gallery? Choose from £10, £20, £50, £100 or any multiple thereof. The voucher comes to you by email, for onward transmission by yourself to the recipient, either by printing out or emailing.
