Gift ideas for cats & owners who have everything

I'm a new cat owner. My boss has 3 cats, all rescued. She's been so supportive to me, giving me lots of cat advice, giving me free time off to take Daryl to the vet, and she gave Daryl a goodie bag full of treats, food, toys and a collar. Since Christmas is coming, I'd like to get her and her cats something special, but I have no idea what to get that she doesn't already have. Any ideas?

I'd get HER a giftcard to somewhere like Bed Bath and Beyond or Linens and Things (are they still around?), or Pier One.

I'd get the CAT a gift card to Petco or Petsmart (whichever she has nearby).

Daryl,
Does she have a favorite cat rescue or organization?
If so, making a Christmas donation to one of those places, in her and her cats names, by you, I'm sure would be very appreciated!
Most rescues/organizations have Special Cards for those purposes, especially during all the Holidays!
So there's one idea...

That charity donation is a great idea, 10cats.
I'd see if maybe I could offer her free pet sitting (by you) for a weekend sometime during the year when you're not busy, if she doesn't already have a cat sitter she uses already.

I think this year my cats will get a huge scratch/lounge from me, I've been wanting that thing for months!

An invitation to CatForum.com...the best cat gift ever!

I like the cat sitting idea. Make up a little certificate and include a few toys or treats. Da Bird is a great toy if they don't already have one.

And what quality of food and treats is she using? If she's not well educated in that area you may be able to show her there's better stuff out there.

All great suggestions, thank you!

I knit and crochet and thought about making a kitty toiletpaper cover or something, but she's a little "high end" so I'm not sure it would be appreciated. I, for one, would love to have one in my bathroom!

How about crocheting a 'cat' cat bed for her. I'd LOVE that.

Didn't know something homemade would be an option

How about making each kitty their own mini throw that they can lay on? When I volunteered at the shelter we had a woman who crocheted large granny squares and a new one was put in the cage with each cat when they came in and went with them to their new home. They would always be laying on them an kneading.

I have a friend that makes clay ornaments of people's cats. They are gorgeous and great quality and value. One of each of his cats would make a great gift!
