The Purring Peddler: Stocking Stuffer Edition

Welcome to The Purring Peddler, a must read column for the stylish cat lady!

One week from today children of all ages will be diving into their Christmas stockings for fun little trinkets and treasures. Big packages are great, but there's something particularly special about reaching into that stocking and pulling out tiny goodies. The possibilities of what could be stashed in there are just endless!

Of course, I always look forward to finding cat-related items in my stocking. Here are a few things we think cat ladies and gents would love waking up to on Christmas morning:

1) Brainwright Cat Stax, The Perfect Puzzle Brain teaser games are so popular right now, and this one has the added bonus of being cat-themed.

2) Set of 4 Cat Coasters Each coaster features a different artistic rendering of a short haired cat and comes beautifully packaged in a sturdy box that has images of all 4 designs.

3) Beaded Bookmark ''A cat's favorite place to nap is on whatever you're reading.'' Were truer words ever spoken???

4) Cat Paw Thumb Drive The included key loop easily attaches to key chains, so important files are never out of reach.

5) Cats in Art: Mini Notebooks A set of three notebooks featuring charming illustrations of cats in scenes from art history. We all need small notebooks in our purses for when blog post ideas pop into our heads...and to make pet store shopping lists!

What kinds of stocking stuffers do you enjoy finding on Christmas morning?
