Here at Lady Dinah’s, we’re big on cat-themed gifting! Over the course of the pandemic, we’ve not been able to meet with family or friends for birthdays or occasions as we’re used to - in turn, the usual gift-exchanging with our loved ones has had to adapt. We’ve seen the market for mail-order treats and bakes booming, and the enormous upturn in e-commerce in the absence of physical shopping trips! Whilst we’re still celebrating lockdown birthdays and approaching our second lockdown Mother’s Day, the Lady Dinah’s team have put together a list of gifts to treat the cat lover in your life (or yourself!), featuring some of our own retail offerings alongside our favourite small cat-loving businesses.
We couldn’t start this list in any other way! If you follow us on social media you’ll have no doubt seen us shamelessly promoting our new product line for the last couple of weeks. We now offer a whole collection of hampers targeted at cat lovers! In the absence of our cats and our guests, we wanted to bring a little bit of the Lady Dinah’s magic to brighten up your lockdown. Our range of hampers cater are perfect for coffee, tea and cake fans with a variety of tasty treats for all diets - and if you’re not a fan of our edible selection, we also offer a self-care hamper containing a selection of soothing pamper products. Our midi hampers even come with a plush kitten; the closest thing we could get to a real cat cafe experience!
Our friends at Cats Protection have their own online store with an array of feline-focused gifts! Amongst their offerings are these rather stylish face coverings, adorned with our furry friends. Protect yourself whilst staying fashionable, and contribute to the running of a fabulous charity in the meantime!
Did you know we design our own birthday mugs? If you’ve ever visited the cafe you’ll know that these gorgeous mugs featuring our (now-retired) residents are normally reserved for those coming to visit us as an in-person birthday outing, but as we can’t currently offer this we’ve moved our stock online! Perfect for a hot beverage on a lockdown birthday, why not treat yourself or a cat-loving pal?
This candle is for the lover of all things feline and gothic! This modern cat-shaped candle melts to reveal a metallic, blazing skeleton. Perfect for a homeware gift that’s a little different!
Ideal for the cat-loving bookworm, our fabulous Cat Paw Bookmarks have been lovingly hand-sculpted by Luca Van Dort and are available in three different colours. Match your black, tabby or ginger kitty and pore over your favourite novel in style!
Bored of baking banana bread and failing to complete your third yoga challenge of lockdown? Hawthorn Handmade’s embroidery kits are perfect for beginners looking to pick up a new hobby! We particularly love this unique cat embroidery, for obvious reasons…
We’ve immortalised our feline retirees in these regal portraits! Choose from some of our most photogenic cat cafe graduates to adorn your new notebook. We think their lovely faces are a pretty fabulous canvas for taking notes from your 5th Zoom meeting of the day! We also stock Vintage Cat Bookmarks to match our notebooks.
Biscuiteers are perfect for your sweet-tooth-having loved one! With a range of long-life treats, their products are ideal for sending by post to friends and family celebrating their birthday in lockdown. We’re particularly fond of this cat-themed box, featuring a range of furry friends. It even comes with a branded keepsake tin - a win-win!
