    ModKat Litter Box, $180
    A litter box MIGHT be the very last thing you'd ever think to get someone, but this is, without a doubt, the best looking litter box ever created. And the steep price definitely makes it gift worthy, considering they probably would't buy it for themselves — as much as they'd love one.
