Anyone who celebrates Mother’s Day wants to get them something special that is unique to them.  This can put a lot of pressure to find something a little different, but the easiest way to find the right gifts is to think about what they like to do or what is in their daily lives.

If your mom just happens to be a cat lover, then problem solved!  You can’t go too far wrong with something that reminds them of cats.  I have found 6 slightly different and yet useful gifts that will not simply sit on a shelf to collect dust.  They can be used, read, worn and enjoyed by your cat loving mom on Mother’s Day!

Cat Pendant Necklace for Mom

I love this baby black kitty with its mom.  I think this would represent an awesome gift for her especially for Mother’s Day.  It really stands out with the black kitties, and is a stunning pendant.  If you love the idea of jewelry and mom is a cat lover as well as a woman who loves to wear jewelry, then the two get combined in this beautiful gift.  It is affordable necklace that really makes a statement.  Love it!

Mug - For the Cat Mom with a Sense of Humor

I love this simplistic mug but it simply says it all.  Every time she pours a coffee or tea she can be reminded of her cat or cats.  I would leave this out on the counter to display as it is so cute and typical of a cat.

Cat Magnet Butts

I got a good chuckle from these.  They are not only realistic but also useful for pinning things to the fridge or metal cabinets.  You get these in a set and are an affordable Mother’s Day gift idea.  We always need magnets in my house for the latest kid picture or grocery lists.  These will make you chuckle every time you get to open the refrigerator.  They literally look like they are entering the fridge.

Detailed Metal Bookmarks of Cats Playing

If you mom loves to read as well as loves cats, you can combine the gift!  These are very intricate designs and come with envelopes ready to give.  This is not something she would likely buy herself and you get 5 different poses of kitties that will make her smile.  This is also a great gift idea if you need to mail yours, as other gifts can get heavy.  This could be tucked into a nice card and she would enjoy it as a token gift from you.

Cat Lover Adult Coloring Book

These coloring books have become very popular for adults and are a great way to relax and create a piece of art at the same time.  What better subject matter than the cat!  As you can see these are a great project for your mom to do.  She can then frame the pictures when she is done.  Adult coloring books are way more detailed than kids, and can take her away from day to day worries.  You don’t have to be crafty or an artist to enjoy this craft.  Add a pack of markers and it is a complete gift package.

There are many of these to choose from online, you may want to get a few.  There are many styles, some more abstract while others more realistic and she can color them any color she wants.

Give Her the Gift of Your Presence

Another awesome gift idea is simply you coming to visit if you live out of town or Skype and enjoy a conversation if you can’t visit.  Stay in touch, really Mother’s day is every day, but it is nice to make this day special.  Restaurants and cafes can get busy, so you could come up with your own ideas such as cook a meal for her while she relaxes, or send her to a spa day if the budget allows.

Experiences Are another Gift idea

If you don’t want to get “things” you could go to the movies with her, a walk in the park, or a botanical garden or simply coffee together.  Appreciate your mom and recognize the day the best way you can and what your budget will allow.

My son took me on a beautiful hiking trail for the afternoon with dinner at the end of it.  It was a gorgeous day and totally enjoyed the experience.   I was quite happy with just the hike; I didn’t even need dinner out to enjoy it.  Just spending time with my adult kids is enough for me to enjoy the day, but as a cat lover I must admit I love the above gift ideas too.

My daughter took me out to get our nails done together and I won’t forget it.  Experiences can be memorable, don’t forget to take some pictures of her having fun with you that she can then stick to the refrigerator with the cat magnets!

Fill the Mug with Extras

Take the first gift idea which was a cat mug and fill it with chocolates, or a gift card to her favorite store, or a homemade gift certificate from you for something to do later that you know she will enjoy. 

Purchase the Cat Book and the Bookmarks together as a double gift.
