Holiday Gift Guide 2023: The Best Vet Tech Gifts

Vet Tech Gifts

If you or someone you love works in veterinary medicine, then you know veterinarians, vet techs, veterinary nurses, and veterinary receptionists are some of the hardest working people imaginable. They often work long hours at understaffed clinics and have to deal with under-appreciative clients in an already stressful profession. And although they are super passionate about what they do and find their career extremely rewarding (even on the hardest days), 49% of veterinary professionals experience “moderate-to-substantial” workplace burnout.* 1

So we think it’s safe to say that the veterinary professional in your life deserves spoiling (all year round but especially during the holiday season). But finding vet techs gifts isn’t always easy — especially ones that you or the vet tech / veterinary professional in your life will absolutely love.

Whether you’re shopping for yourself, your favorite co-worker, your entire veterinary staff, or a loved one who works in veterinary medicine this holiday season, we have compiled the ultimate list of vet tech gifts to make your holiday shopping easier than ever and guarantee that you give / receive a gift that screams “I work in Vet Med!”

And we want to thank you for shopping Love Huvet for your vet tech gifts and veterinary gifts this holiday season. When you get your vet tech gifts from us, you're supporting a small business owned and ran by a veterinary professional. We appreciate every order and are honored to be a part of your holiday season!

1. The Best Vet Tech Gifts

In a hurry? We understand. We’ll cut right to the chase and share our top five picks for vet tech gifts that will leave any veterinarian, vet tech, or veterinary nurse saying “this is my favorite gift EVER!” 

(TBH: #4 on this list was a really close call so if you have an extra minute, scroll to #4 to see the brand new veterinary gift we're launching on 11/25.)

The Vet Med Wellness Journal

The Vet Med Wellness Journal is our best-selling product — and for good reason. It is truly the ultimate gift for veterinary technicians or anyone who works in veterinary medicine! And we've sold out of it SEVEN times -- so if you're thinking of grabbing a few as vet tech gifts, grab them before they're gone!

This daily wellness journal is the perfect place to vent and reflect after your day at the clinic, and it was designed specifically for veterinary professionals with questions like favorite case of the day, who did you boop today, and so much more. Plus, our Vet Med Wellness Journal received a big revamp this year – with an updated hard cover (available in our Classic Veterinary Floral design or in a sleek matte black) and updated inside pages!

Working in vet med can be difficult and this journal is an easy way to decompress after a long day by getting all of your thoughts and feelings down on paper and off of your chest.

Scrub Caps for Veterinary Professionals

Scrub caps are an essential part of any scrub ensemble and a must-have when going into surgery. It’s true that you can never have too many scrub caps while working in veterinary medicine. But the veterinary technician or veterinarian in your life doesn’t want just any old boring scrub cap! If you're looking for vet tech gifts that will knock it out of the park this year, grab a scrub cap (or two) designed specifically for vet med.

Scrub caps are excellent veterinary and vet tech gifts (and we recommend grabbing a matching headband or scrunchie to go with it). We have several designs available for you to choose from — including new ponytail styles for those with long hair – in sassy and fun designs that any vet tech or veterinary professional will love!

The Indestructible Pocket Notebook

The Indestructible Pocket Notebook for Veterinary Professionals is a must-have vet tech gift for anyone in veterinary medicine (especially great for internships or vet students!)

It's perfect for when you need to write down a mental note, jot down a quick reminder, or record your patient findings. It's waterproof, tear-proof, and smear-proof AND fits in your pocket. Plus, you can choose between our SOAP template or lined paper versions.
