How to DIY the Purrfect Gift Box for Your Cat
Not sure what to get that special feline someone for the holidays this year? Here's a gift that will really get him purring: A gift box full of his favorite Meow Mix® goodies. Plus, once you've unwrapped kitty's holiday gifts, he can hang out in the cozy box all year! Follow these tips to create a gift box your cat will absolutely adore.
1. Pick the Perfect Edible Gifts
As every cat parent knows, each cat has his or her own preferences. While the gift items below will make a healthy adult cat's day, feel free to swap out other Meow Mix® yummies for cats of different ages or health needs. For nearly all cats though, a dry food, a wet food, and a treat is a winning holiday combo:
Dry food: Meow Mix® Bistro Recipes™ Seared Tuna Flavor What cat can resist the flavor of seared tuna? This crunchy meal is made with real tuna—an ideal holiday dinner.
Wet food: Meow Mix® Simple Servings™ Seafood Variety Pack Flavors of salmon, tuna, shrimp, whitefish—how's a cat supposed to choose? With this indulgent variety pack of perfectly-portioned wet food, he won't have to.
Treat: Meow Mix® Irresistibles® - Crunchy With White Meat Chicken & Turkey They're called "Irresistibles" for a reason. Whether it's the holidays or halfway through summer, your cat will shower you with extra head-butts for these treats.
2. Use a Simple Box as the Gift Basket
Create the ultimate cat gift using one of your cat's very favorite things: a cardboard box. Cats love a good box to curl up in year-round, so giving him one of his very own this holiday is a great way to delight him. Make sure it's big enough for your cat to sit in—as well as big enough for your Meow Mix gifts.
3. Put it all together
Who needs fancy packing materials? Put a small, already-loved blanket or shirt in the bottom of the box. Its familiar smell will help your cat know this is a spot for him. Place the Meow Mix goodies on top, nestling the items decoratively amongst the fabric.
All this gift needs is the purrfect bow. But string can be dangerous for your cat, so here's a better way to tie together this kitty gift: a drawn-on bow. Grab your favorite permanent markers and draw a beautiful bow—or whatever holiday decor you and your kitty like best.
That's it! Your cat now has a box full of yummy Meow Mix® delights to enjoy this holiday season, as well as the perfect place to snooze once he's gobbled them up.
