If this is the first time you’re hearing about Vet Tech Week aka Veterinary Technician Appreciation Week, check out our blog post Celebrating Vet Tech Week 2023 to learn more about this annual veterinary holiday. You’ll also find tons of ideas on how to make Vet Tech Week special or how to celebrate the veterinary technician(s) in your life.
Now before we get to the gifts…
Let’s get personal: personalized vet tech gifts
Before we share some of our best-selling vet tech gifts and exclusive bundles, let’s talk about what really matters when it comes to vet tech gifts.
Your techs aren’t expecting you to blow your budget, they just want to feel seen, valued, and appreciated. They understand if you can’t afford to spend hundreds of dollars on vet tech gifts but gifting them random items that nobody would ever want or (maybe worse) corporate swag that nobody would ever wear just isn’t going to cut it.
We asked over 150 veterinary technicians in our community what their employer, managers, and veterinarians could do to help them feel appreciated during vet tech week and the number one choice was personalized gifts.
Some people said they would love personalized vet tech gifts in the form of instruments, accessories, or clothing with their name or title on it. Others said that to them a personalized gift meant a gift that was curated to the things they like.
If you feel like you don’t know each of your veterinary technicians well enough to pick out vet tech gifts that they will absolutely love (or maybe you just want to 100% guarantee you’re grabbing their favorite snacks), then create a physical or digital form they can fill out to share their preferences and favorite things (you can use Google Forms or just write it on a piece of paper + make copies).
We offer custom vet tech gifts
And if you are interested in ordering vet tech gifts with your staff’s names or titles — or creating a totally custom project that your vet techs will love — we would love to help make your dream a reality. Check out our customs page for more information or send us a DM on Instagram / email email@example.com to tell us more about your project.
8 Must-Have Vet Tech Gifts
Alright, let's cut to the chase. You're not here for a history lesson; you're here for vet tech gifts that are as awesome as the people receiving them. Here are some of the best-selling products from our shop that any vet tech would love to receive for Vet Tech Week!
1. Vet Med Wellness Journal
The Vet Med Wellness Journal is one of our best-selling vet tech gifts! This journal offers a holistic approach to mental health and helps veterinary professionals create a daily routine that promotes self-reflection and emotional wellness — a much needed habit for the professionals in our field who often face high amounts of daily stress that can lead to compassion fatigue, burnout, and mental health struggles. When you gift this journal to your vet techs, you are helping to make a difference in their lives!
Our new and improved Vet Med Wellness Journal features a hard cover with our classic floral veterinary caduceus design and new + improved prompts, including a new health tracker for tracking sleep, steps, and water intake.
And if you’re a clinic interested in gifting a journal to each of your vet techs, check out our bulk journal discount. Buy 10 or more journals and you can save 20% with code BULKJOURNALS10.
Oh, and if the vet tech in your life is more of an iPad girlie than a physical journal lover, check out our new ultimate digital veterinary planner that includes the Vet Med Wellness journal! It also includes monthly and weekly planner pages, weekly reflection prompts, and SOAP template pages.
2. Scrub Caps
The veterinary technician in your life can NEVER have too many scrub caps. I mean, who wants to look boring during surgery? Not YOUR vet techs. We offer different designs to match every personality on your staff and two sizes (ponytail + regular) to fit no matter how long your mane, I mean hair, is! And scrub caps don’t just look good, they are made from a durable material that can withstand the chaos of a vet clinic. Check out some of our new + classic designs below.
3. Vet Tech Gifts: Hair Accessories
Keeping your hair out of your face (or even worse places that we don’t even want to imagine) is crucial for vet techs. Our collection of scrunchies and headbands feature fun veterinary inspired designs that are perfect for in the clinic or showing your vet med pride while off-duty.
We recently launched two new designs that our community has been asking about for a long time. If you’re a large animal vet tech, this one’s for you!
And after many many requests, we’re so excited to finally have our Dragging Ass design available in headband and scrunchie. Hair accessories are a great option for affordable vet tech gifts that your long-haired vet techs will love!
Check out our other hair accessories designs below. And keep scrolling for more vet tech gifts!

Look good, feel good, and show off your veterinary pride with Love Huvet’s collection of apparel! Check out our new shirts, sweatshirts, baseball caps, and beanies perfect for Fall.

5. Croc Charms
Crocs have quickly become the unofficial footwear of the vet world. So we can't talk about vet tech gifts without talking about croc charms! Check out our collection of unique veterinary croc charms below.
6. Vet Tech Gifts: Stethoscope Charms
Add flair and personality to your look with our interchangeable stethoscope charms. What’s cool is that these charms feature a velcro backing that works on both our stethoscope tag and badge reel attachment. Swap any of the charms in our shop from stethoscope to badge reel with ease or simply swap from one charm to the next to fit your mood + personality!
We know, we know. Iced coffee is basically a staple for vet techs or anyone who works in vet med. But we can’t be the only ones who absolutely hate the desk puddles that form once the ice stars melting!
Enter: iced coffee koozies. These koozies are a great idea if you’re looking for vet tech gifts that are fun but still affordable. Our 16 oz is good for your favorite beverages from Starbucks or Dunkin and can even work with your tumblers. We also carry slim can koozies perfect for energy drinks or those afterwork beverages 😉
8. Vet Tech Gifts: Stickers
We can’t talk about vet tech gifts without talking about STICKERS! And we have a sticker for every mood, vibe, or personality. Check out our ultimate sticker guide for a run down on our entire collection!
