4. Basepaws Cat DNA Test Kit: For the Curious Cat Guardian
Who wouldn’t want to find out more about their cat’s ancestry? The Basepaws Cat DNA test is a novel gift that offers insights into Kitty’s genetics and which breeds may be in his past. If you opt for Basepaws’ more expensive Breed + Health report, in addition to learning which breeds and wildcats your cat is most closely related to, you’ll also gain access to information on how your cat’s genetics may be connected to certain health factors. This information is based on Basepaws research and data and is by no means a reliable method of assessing a cat’s propensity to different health conditions, but it’s interesting and can be fun to sift through.
We tried the Basepaws DNA test a little over a year ago and you can read our full review of the experience here: Basepaws Cat DNA Test: What Breed is Wessie?
Overall, a Basepaws DNA test kit is a fresh and modern gift that will interest most any cat person. Basepaws DNA tests start normally start at $99, but Basepaws is currently running an early Christmas sale through November 30th, so make sure you order early!
You can get 30% off the Basepaws Breed Groups DNA test kit with the coupon code PUR30 and 50% off the Breed + Health DNA kit with the code PURRR. This deal is only valid through November 30th!

12. Hexbug Nano Robotic Cat Toy: For the Techie Cat

It’s fun to buy gifts for your cat sometimes. However, it’s not necessary to make your cat happy.
It’s fun to spoil your cat and cat-loving friends—but sometimes we need a reminder that extra toys and gifts are not necessary for our cats’ happiness. Gifts and store-bought toys are not what makes our cats’ lives rich and happy, so don’t feel bad if you’re on a budget and feel like you can’t buy everything you want to for your cat. You’ll find ideas for gifts you can give your cat this Christmas without spending a dime in our article, Why Cat Toys Are a Waste of Money.
Now enjoy the holiday season and don’t forget to give your cat a taste of turkey from the table!
