What’s the occasion?

  • Fourth of July
  • Get well soon
  • New kitten
  • Just because
  • Milestones (new job, new house, farewell, bon voyage)

Choosing the container

Do you want a large or a small container? You can find baskets in different sizes and shapes. You can also choose from a wide variety of styles. If you're going with a traditional basket, you can either pick a wicker or a metal basket. These baskets are found at crafts stores, even at the dollar store.

If you want to make your gift stand out, get creative! Choose a different type of container. Instead of a basket, you could also use:

A cardboard box: A great idea is to cover the box with a nice wrapping paper. The advantage of using a box as a container is that there are different sizes to choose from, and it is really inexpensive. For extra originality use a hatbox.

A bucket: Buckets come in plastic or metal, and they also come in different sizes. You could also use metal tins and pails.

A big cookie jar: This type of container is fun and practical! In addition to regular cookie jars, you can also use cat-themed cookie jars. Another idea is to use a large kitchen canister. You can find canisters in different materials such as glass, ceramic, and metal.

A big fruit bowl: This is another fun idea with a practical twist. As an alternative, you could use a large salad bowl. I particularly love wooden salad bowls.

A large gift bag: A pretty, cat-themed gift bag can also be used as a container, especially for last-minute presents. Just make sure that the bag can support all the goodies.

A wooden crate or box: These boxes make unique containers and they give you lots of space to put all those goodies. You can also find them in different sizes.

Tote bag: A large tote bag filled with cat accessories, cat toys, and/or cat books makes a nice gift.


Okay, you've selected the right container and now the fun part begins! Before filling it up, think about the recipient of the gift basket. Is the gift basket for your furry friend or for your human friend? Or maybe it is for both! Here’s a partial list of ideas for filling up that basket:

Treats for cats:

  • Cat treats
  • Catnip
  • Catnip toys
  • Mouse toys, rattle, balls
  • Plush toys
  • Cat food bowls
  • Cat accessories
  • Pet tags
  • Cat jewelry

Wrap it up

Another option to wrap cardboard boxes is to use gift wrapping paper. For a luxurious look and feel use fabric, lace, or even faux fur!

Remember to include in your pet gift basket a nice note or card celebrating the particular occasion.
