The Purrfect Gifts for Cat-Loving Colorists
Cat Coloring Gifts
I think it’s safe to say that almost all of us know at least one person in our coloring community that adores cats. I have a few dear friends who love sharing pictures of their cats “helping” them while they color. It’s adorable! Cats are amazing companion animals and I really wanted to honor that by coming up with some unique gift ideas for my friends this holiday season that combine both their passion for coloring and their love of furry felines.
After much searching I’ve put together a list of my favorite gift ideas for anyone that enjoys both cats and coloring and I hope you enjoy!
Cat-Approved Coloring Books
I like to begin all my coloring gift guides with the coloring books themselves. We can’t have cats and coloring without them and I found a few treasures that will warm the heart of any cat lover, plus a few other must-haves that are perfect for any colorist.
- Cats and Quilts by Jason Hamilton is a beautiful coloring book full of realistic cat images combined with the comfort and nostalgia of homemade quilts. A warm, heartfelt coloring book perfect for anyone who loves cats.
- Rooted in Wacky Fun by Jeanette Wummel is a hilarious collection of silly designs that are a blast to color including my personal favorite – Taco Cats! For variety
- I’ve included Whimsical Mandalas by Sue Chastain. This is Sue’s first volume in her OrnaMENTALs series and features 30 gorgeous mandalas to relax with. These designs are great for any colorist and are easy to color even with a feline friend in your lap.
- Creative Cats by Marjorie Sarnat is a classic in the coloring community. This coloring book features adorable cats in all kinds of different playful scenarios. This book is a definite must-have for any cat loving colorist.
Useful Coloring Gifts with a Feline Flair
The Tote: Charles Wysocki Cat Tails
Every colorist needs a bag that can hold a few favorite coloring books, media and other on-the-go coloring essentials for traveling or even simple storage. This stunning tote by The Bradford Exchange featuring exclusive art by Charles Wysocki is the most fabulous gift for a colorist, a cat lover, a book lover, you name it…this is the one! It’s a little bit of a splurge, but whomever you gift this bag to is probably going to love you forever. I would!
The Mug: Coffee Crew Cat
Mixing cats and coloring can be tricky because cats love to jump on tables and walk all over everything. It can be risky business trying to enjoy a beverage while coloring with a cat lurking about. Save your coloring from certain doom by putting your favorite beverage in this adorably kitschy travel mug. Great for at home or on-the-go, this mug is cat lover perfection and makes a great gift.
Bare with me here. I know this is supposed to be the “useful gifts” section and yes, these cat butt magnets are useful. You can use them to hang your favorite colored pictures on the fridge! Okay, that might be a stretch but ask any cat lover and they will tell you how often they get this view from their fuzzy pal. They are a fun addition for any cat-themed gift bundle and will definitely make your friends giggle. I’ve included a less cheeky version for the more timid cat lover.
Gifts for Our Fluffy Friends
If you are looking for the perfect gifts for your cat-loving, coloring friends – don’t forget their cats! Keeping their fur-babies busy with toys or treats will help give your friends some elbow room so they can color in peace. For a moment at least.
That wraps up my gift guide for cat-loving colorists. I hope you’ve enjoyed these fun ideas for this holiday season.
