You can show your veterinary staff how much you appreciate their work by purchasing vet-themed gifts for the holidays. Look for apparel, office products and home decor with a veterinary theme or create special gift baskets that include gourmet chocolate or favourite body care products. Add inexpensive small gifts, if desired, such as veterinary decal stickers.
Browse through vet-themed apparel selections on gift sites like Zazzle. Look for aprons that read "Vet Tech: Spay. Neuter. Adopt. Protect" or fitted T-shirts that say "Peace Love and Veterinary Medicine" with coordinating designs. Funny T-shirts are also options, such as those that say "Career Goals: Vet Tech, Ninja" with ticks next to them. White hoodies emblazoned with the words "Veterinary Staff" and a Red Cross symbol are another idea.
Browse shopping sites for vet-themed home decor such as barking dog clocks, which feature a different dog breed in lieu of numbers and barks at their corresponding hours, such as those available on Find Gift.com. Look for decorative soaps featuring a specific dog breed, K-9 ambulance cookie jars, planters shaped like dogs and cats and nail art featuring a horse and veterinarian. Other ideas include "Advice from a Dog" pillows, plush dogs of common pet diseases, pretend and play animal hospital sets for the children of vet techs and caricatures of staff members.
Shop for gifts your staff can use at their desks. Look for veterinary-themed coffee mugs, personalised wooden notepads and pen holders, personalised wooden signs, personalised paperweights, personalised picture frames and custom glass name plates. Browse for veterinary-themed calenders as an inexpensive gift option. Personalised veterinary cartoons are another option staff members can hang up in their respective cubicles. Personalised stainless steel canteens make practical gifts for staff members who always carry plastic water bottles.
Gift baskets are almost always a hit with their recipients. Purchase gift baskets from assorted shopping sites such as Gourmet Gift Baskets and Harry and David or create your own. Assign a theme to the baskets or a theme per basket, such as olive oil, candy and cookies, bath and body products, gourmet chocolate and vet-themed gifts. Include gift tokens to restaurants, shops, movies, local takeout establishments, spas, gyms and sports clubs.
