The Ultimate Guide to Veterinary Gifts

Veterinary 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 veterinary 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 veterinary 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 veterinary gifts this holiday season. When you get your veterinary 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 Veterinary Gifts

In a hurry? We understand. We’ll cut right to the chase and share our top three picks for veterinary 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 FIVE times -- so if you're thinking of grabbing a few as veterinary 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 (click here to check out our walkthrough of the inside of the journal on TikTok).

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 veterinary 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 gifts (and we recommend grabbing a matching headband or scrunchie to go with it). We have several designs available for you to choose from — ranging from our best-selling I <3 Spicy Purritos + Sorry I’m Dragging A$$ designs, our perfect for anatomy lovers Skull design, and our most-loved “Smelling ISO” for those days when you notice a leak and it's a little too late 🥴.

The Indestructible Pocket Notebook

The Indestructible Pocket Notebook for Veterinary Professionals is a must-have veterinary 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.

An Ugly Sweater Perfect for Vet Techs

Ugly sweaters are an essential for holiday parties — and what could be more fun than an ugly sweater designed specifically for the vet med community?! As far as veterinary gifts go, winning the “best ugly sweater” contest at your clinic’s holiday party is hard to beat!

Last year we gave our classic Dragging A$$ design a festive makeover (see below)— and we’re excited to announce that we’re bringing our Dragging A$$ Through the Snow design on a new Ugly Sweaters this year! But if you or the vet tech in your life already has that design, don’t worry 😉 we’ve also transformed our Jingle Bells sticker design into an ugly sweater in an exciting way. Click here to get a sneak peak on Instagram

These are only available during the holiday season — and we’re not sure if we’ll bring them back for next year or do something totally new — so grab one or two as veterinary gifts before they’re gone! 

Interested in purchasing one of our ugly sweaters as a veterinary gift for the vet tech or veterinary professional in your life? Both designs will be available starting 11/25 at 12PM EST.

Winter Apparel for Veterinary Staff

Ugly sweaters are great for holiday parties but what about the rest of the hoilday season? Well we’ve got you covered with shirts and sweaters perfect for the veterinarian or vet tech on your holiday list. Our winter apparel will include some of our previous designs like “Be the Change You Wish to See in Vet Med” and “No Questions About Your Pet” in new colors that are perfect for winter, and make excellent veterinary gifts that can be worn around the house or at the clinic. Available starting 11/25.

3. Veterinary Gifts New to Love Huvet

We are so excited to announce that we are launching a brand new product on 11/25 — something we have never had in our shop before and something people have been asking us to create for a long time! And this will make an incredible gift for the veterinary professional in your life — especially the one who loves their Crocs!

That’s right! We’re launching Croc Charms!

When it comes to veterinary gifts, this one is a no brainer. Crocs are a staple for veterinary professionals and now you can decorate your favorite pair of crocs with cute vet med charms available in our best-selling "Dragging A$$" and "I <3 Spicy Purritos" designs and more. 

These will be available for purchase individually or in a set on 11/25 at 12 PM EST! We suspect that these croc charms may sell out so make sure to grab yours quickly if you're planning on giving out a few as veterinary gifts this holiday season.

Stickers are Easy Veterinary Gifts

We couldn’t create a list of the ultimate veterinary gifts without including STICKERS! In case you didn’t know, when we first launched our business in 2020 we were actually known as VetStickers. As our product line evolved, so did our name — but we are still sticker lovers through and through.

If you are buying veterinary gifts in bulk, our sticker packs are a great way to get some of our best-selling and most-loved stickers at a great deal. But we’ll leave the hard decision of dividing up your sticker haul amongst your staff to you.
