Holiday time is here again! Shopping for the holi-DAZE can be overwhelming, but we will try to make it easy with a few conventional and unconventional ideas!
Holiday Gift Guide
Consider these ideas for the little gifts for mom, dad, gram, gramps, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, co-workers, mail carrier and more!
Classic Holiday jewelry -- whether it is snowmen or reindeer, we have it ~ and it's always a hit! You can get super Christmas-y like this vintage wreath brooch or, just winter-y with a pair of reindeer earrings. Holiday jewelry covers all budgets too, starting at only $4!
We also have collectable ornaments from one of our best-selling brands, Erstwilder! They can be hung year round as a reminder of the peace and love you give during the holiday season, and come in a sweet gift giving box!
Stick with a traditional gift ~ ties! We have a wide assortment of Vintage & Retro Ties, everything from a conservative stripe to novelty print. Starting at $18, they are a safe investment and if you buy vintage, you are doing a small part in saving the planet by recycling! Many of them are New Old Stock!
We have this gorgeous Chase Jaguar Silk Scarf ~ because sometimes you need to give a decadent gift! This is a collectable "Jaguar Jungle" silk scarf by Lynn Chase from the late 1980s/ early 1990s. It features jaguars, flowers butterflies, parrots on a black background and is in excellent condition ~ perfect for gift giving!
Big foot socks are our best-selling sock designs for the fellas, and we have several varieties too! Perfect stocking stuffers...or should I say SOCKing stuffers?!
That being said, we have an amazing selection of cat socks for men and women too!
For the "hostess with the mostess" gift, consider a pretty vintage apron! Some of them still have their original tags!
Speaking of kitchens...for the Pyrex lovers, we have Butterprint earrings and keychains that are locally made!
For even more stocking stuffers, we have Krampus Cuties hair ties. They are reversible and adjustable, can be worn with a tie at the top, under the hair, around a ponytail or tied around your neck. Cats Like Us is the exclusive retailer of Krampus Cuties and we carry over 50 prints!
Maybe there's a monster lover on your list? Why not give them an exclusive to Cats Like Us, monster garage T shirt designed by local author and artist Monster Matt? They are unisex sizing and come in Small- XXXL ~ they even have a little hang tag that shows the original artwork the shirts were derived from!
Need a simple gift for the gal that has everything? These cropped cardigans are so versatile and come in a variety of colors in S-XXXXL at $28 they are a great price point! It'll be her go-to cardigan, and she'll want them in all the colors!
Vintage -- the most unique gift!
Sometimes people feel weird about giving a vintage gift because it was loved by someone before, so we've curated some really great vintage pieces that are NEW, never used stock for you, all in one collection! They want a new life and are looking for their forever home!
Still Got Nuthin'?
If you're still stumped or need a last minute stocking stuffer, how about a Cats Like Us Gift Card? They are available on our website and emailed to you immediately. If you're local and want a physical Gift Card you can stop on in and you can purchase one in ANY amount!
