Do you know what to choose as gifts for therapists in your life? Shopping for gifts can be a difficult task, but we are here to help! Below, we have compiled a list of gift ideas that are perfect for any therapist. We hope this guide helps you find gifts for those who care deeply about mental health and well-being.
Things to mind about Gifts for Therapists
1. Know their interests
You can never go wrong with a gift supporting your recipient’s interest.
- If they enjoy cooking, give them a cookbook or kitchen utensils
- If they love to read, give them a book or subscription or gifts card for their favorite store
- If they enjoy music, get them concert tickets, an iTunes gift card or CD of their favourite artist
*don’t forget about smaller gifts that might be missed- like bath bombs and candles. These are great things to have in your home as well.*
2. Know what they do for work
- Because they’re a therapist, you could get them a book on therapy techniques or something related to that field, but make sure to choose the high-quality one by checking reviews first.
- You can also think of practical gifts to help with their daily work: Desk accessories – desk calendar, pens, sticky notes, etc
3. Consider their personality and lifestyle
- If they have a specific hobby or are really into travelling, you can get gifts related to that, such as a cool backpack, gifts cards to their favorite store or gifts related to a specific country.
- If they’re really into sports, you could get them tickets for an event that’s coming up soon – if it’s not too expensive of course!
- If a therapist is more of the outdoorsy type, you could buy gifts like fishing poles, hiking gear and/or camping equipment.
- Also if the person is an introvert, then gifts related to being alone may suit them more than gifts of public praise (like recognition in front of others). For example, you may get them a beautiful book on nature or gifts they can use in private.
The idea is just make sure the gift matches how they are and build from there.
4. Make sure the gift is thoughtful, and personal if it’s someone close to you
Try to stand on their shoes to understand what they need and get them a thoughtful present!
- Therapists are often on their feet for long periods of time, so a nice pair of shoes can be the perfect gift
- Watch with a therapeutic message like “you’re enough” or “let go”
- A massage chair for when they need some self-care time
If the recipient is close to you, personal gifts are reccommended to leave deeper impression. For example:
- A personal journal to write down thoughts and feelings is always helpful
- For family members: Try buying gifts related to activities together
Many gifts are impersonal in the sense that it can go towards any person who has this interest but make sure when giving gifts to those close to you (family members) is especially thoughtful because these people have given you so much already throughout your life and deserve some extra effort even when not celebrating anything specific with them .
5. Remember how much money you want to spend
Know how much you can afford before buying anything more expensive than $10-$25 because therapists don’t usually have extravagant tastes.
Here are some inexpensive but appreciated gifts:
- Inexpensive stationary sets (stamps, pens, notebooks)
- Certificate of completion for a course on their interests or passions that they could hang up in their home office
- New desk accessories like a cool lamp or even some plants to liven up the space and make it more personal. You can also buy them an inspirational quote written on metal art. These gifts are thoughtful because you’re helping them stay organized!
- Gifts cards from places where therapists would treat themselves if they had enough time – like Starbucks so they can get coffee while working late at night without having to spend any money out of pocket. They’ll appreciate this especially when feeling drained after work with no energy left to do anything but drink caffeine .
- Another option is just gifting money (perhaps wrapped up nicely) which can go towards anything on his or her wish list – this often provides added flexibility because they have control over what gifts will best suit their needs but remember not to give cash if he has restriction about that.
