Create A Gift Basket For A Cat Lover!
The choice of what gift to give your family and friends can
often be a difficult one. One of the best gifts that you can give
is a themed gift basket. A gift basket is that one present that
comes in many shapes, themes and of course price ranges. A gift
basket can also be a new arrival gift idea for that family
The diversity of gift baskets is never-ending. You can give a
cat gourmet food gift basket (make sure they are good quality
products to ensure the feline doesn't reject the food!) or a bath
and grooming necessities gift basket. In fact the list is
Here is a simple basket that you can easily create yourself
for that special "Cat Lover".
Pick a basket style. I like to use either a bucket (can be
used to store grooming products in) or a cat basket. There are a
lot of choices on the market so choose between one with two side
handles or without handles. A cat likes to feel snug in their
environment so a closed in fabric padded style basket will also
be well received. Make certain the basket is large enough to hold
the gifts you have selected and of course if it is intended for
the cat to sleep in it, large enough to accommodate that special
Choose a color that complements the cat lover's home decor. If
in doubt, choose a neutral color by selecting a natural wicker
Next select a variety of items that have a cat theme. When
selecting the gifts for the cat lover choose items with cat
themes such as cat calendars, coffee mugs, computer mouse pads,
T-shirts, note cards, stationery, cat magazines, include fiction
and nonfiction books and picture frames.
Select some grooming brushes and cat toys for their cat.
If you are on a budget try a small basket and include:
A photo frame, a disposable camera to take some memorable
moments between the recipient and their special feline, a photo
album, along with a voucher for photo finishing.
When you are finished choosing the gifts and have selected the
basket, wrap the completed Gift Basket with cellophane paper and
a nice ribbon to give it a finishing touch. Use shredded paper
inside the basket to hold the goodies in place. Tie a humorous
gift tag with a message for that added touch.
