For the past decade, Cat Socrates has offered shoppers great gifts with an edge, many made by local designers. From books, cards, and stationery to funky totes, lamps, and tapestries, visiting the store is like walking into a candy shop for adults with an appetite for kitsch and clever doodads. There are phone covers, fun mugs, witty jewelry designs, and other cool things that make fantastic presents. There’s even a section of Singapore
-themed items—and cat lovers will appreciate the merchandise with a feline focus.
