I love kitties, but it gets tiring getting gifts of everything "kitty". One year someone gave me a picture of a huge red rose and a white cat, it didn't match anything in my apartment. The picture was lovely and done on gorgeous mahogany wood. It leaned against a wall for several years before I finally gave it away to a charity. I've gotton furry kittens in wicker baskets that sat and gathered dust. Cat crystal ornaments. Cat patterned bowls.
I love cats but that doesn't mean that every gift given to me needs to be cat oriented.
I much prefer practical things such as gift certificates to online sites like Amazon or a store in one of the 3D Graphic communities I frequent, or something computer related like blank DVDs. Socks, panties, perfume, books, CDs, maybe a new wallet or coin purse. I'm not a candle person, but even some nice candles would be prefered over everything "kitty"
