Holiday shopping can be so much fun. Thinking of and finding the perfect gift makes you feel great, and seeing the recipient open it up and get excited is the icing on the cake.

Homemade gift baskets are a way to show off your creativity and style and give your friend or family member several gifts related to a unique theme. What better theme is there than cats? After all, people love spoiling their feline friends.

Make some cat gift baskets quickly and easily, and hand them out to all of the cat owners on your list. Don't forget to make some for your own cats, too. Here's one great way to construct a gift basket for a cat, where even the basket and lining is part of the gift.

Start with the Perfect Basket: A Cat Cave

Cat Caves are the ultimate in coziness for a cat. Cats love to climb in, hide, curl up and sleep, and simply watch what's going on from the safety of a cave. They come in a variety of beautiful colors, including some classic holiday ones, so just choose the one you like to be the basket part of your gift basket.

Line the Basket with a Muffin Blanket

Instead of tissue paper, line your kitty gift basket with a Muffin Blanket. They are so soft, and cats absolutely love kneading them, lying on them, and curling up in them. Pick one that complements the cat cave you've chosen, and line the cave with it.

Have Fun Choosing Holiday Cat Toys
