Xmas just keeps getting more and more expensive which is why I love the idea of Secret Santa gifts. The basic concept of the Secret Santa game is simple. All of the participants’ names are placed into a hat, box, etc. and mixed up. Each person then chooses one name from the box, but doesn’t tell anyone which name was picked. He/she is now responsible for buying a gift for the person selected. http://www.secretsanta.com/ An amount is agreed which is usually around the £5/£6 mark so as not to make it a pressure or expensive for anyone.
Here’s my 6 choices for your secret santa xmas presents for cat lovers.
4cats Gingerbread Man – Valerian Toy
A lovely little xmas filler for your secret santa’s cat! This can be tucked into their catty stocking at the end of their little bed or hung on the xmas tree… mmm.. maybe the latter is a bad idea!!! These Valerian toys (and there’s many more 4cats goodies under £6 in the Katzenworld shop) will get your cat super crazy and might bring the whole tree down if they can smell it through the wrapping paper! Only 4.99 – BUY
CAT FACE BOOK MARKER
I adore this cat face book marker. It’s a fun item for adults especially if they have children they wish to encourage to read more. A fab original alternative to bending the corners of your books or using a drab paper book marker. Perfect for cat lovers I would say! £5.00 BUY
I love these cat coasters. They are hand crocheted from 100% cotton and are fully washable with buttons for eyes. They measure approximately 3.5 inches in diameter not including tail,feet and face. If you have a particular cat you would them to Match up to they can do that also!! – £5 BUY
