Budget Cat Gift Ideas: 5 Items Under 20 Dollars

Cat gift ideas for people on a budget. Here are five items for under twenty dollars that will make any cat lover sit up and purr.

One thing that is certain about cat lovers is that they always appreciate anything that honors or represents the feline, regardless of cost. It doesn't have to be fancy, or large, and you don't have to make a big deal out of it. It just has to be, well, cat-like.

These inexpensive gifts are sure to please...


#1: Key chains

One of the most popular gifts at Amazon is this high tech Coby 1.5-Inch Digital Photo Keychain. It has a 1.5-inch CSTN LCD full-color display and can store over 60 photos of your favorite cats.

Now you can have 60 pictures of your cats with you at all times!

It supports various formats, and can display picture files in JPEG, GIF, and BMP.

There's a USB port so you can transfer your files to your Windows or Mac OS computer, and a built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. Makes a great addition to your cat gift list.


#2: Stuffed Animals and Plush Toys

The Webkinz Himalayan Cat makes a cute gift, as do the rest of the Webkinz crew (and other stuffed animals). Kookeys plush cats, like this Kookeys Tiger Kitten come with a key code so you can register your new pet online. The Kookeys website provides an online world based on the Kookeys plush toys, where children can have fun while learning.

#5: Cat Calendar and Stationary Items

It's the law. Every cat lover must have a cat calendar.

Since having more than one calendar is common (kitchen, home office, work office, organizer), you really can't go wrong by buying calendars as presents.

I can't remember the last time there hasn't been a cat calendar in my house, either on the wall or on my desk, or sometimes both.

There's a huge selection of over 700 animal calendars at Calendars.com.

Amazon also has a good selection of calendars, such as the 365 Cats Page-A-Day Calendar.

Lance Smith, of Country Music Television fame, has written a children's book called The Old Man and The Cat
