Gifts by Profession: Unique Gift Ideas According to Career

April 18, 2019 3 min read

gift ideas suggestions by job profession

Can't decide what to give your loved one for their birthday or a special occasion? One tip to try is to give them a present related to their profession. After all, there's a big chance that their career is synonymous to what they love, and a job-related item can be useful or stimulating for them.

Still, you don't want to just give a box of chalk to a teacher, do you? You want your present to be beautiful and memorable as well. We at Gear Den hear ya -- check out these unique suggestions for job-related gifts and presents.

 

1. For a teacher

It's nice to impart an appropriate thank-you gift for your child's mentor, or to simply honor a teacher friend for the vocation they've chosen. A lovely motivational wall art is the perfect thing for them to hang in their office, classroom, or home. The one above is both inspiring and full of respect.

 

2. For a doctor or nurse

Doctors, nurses, dentists, and other medical professionals often lead hectic lives, so they deserve a sprinkling of humor every now and then. A funny item, like the customized shot glass above, could just be the breather they need.

 

3. For a writer

For the wordsmith in your life, forget the symbolic fountain pens -- they likely get lots of those already. Instead, gift them with something as romantic as their literary icons. A novel-inspired tea package is an excellent example.

 

4. For a firefighter

There's something about being married to a firefighter that's just exciting and fun. On your anniversary, surprise your brave husband (or wife!) with a bold-but-sweet personalized wall sign.

 

5. For an artist

Gifting to a painter, designer, or photographer can be tricky because you expect them to have a keen eye for aesthetics. So how about a simple but timeless experience instead? An afternoon at a quiet spa or a quick log-cabin getaway can invigorate their artistic spirit.

 

6. For an accountant

Accounting and business are two fields where coffee is a vital fuel -- and where humor is a needed commodity. Combine both with a funny coffee mug that takes a lighthearted jab at their career choice.

 

7. For a performer

The performing arts are rife with beauty, and you can capture this beauty to make a unique gift for your dancer, singer, or actor friend. Select a stunning photo of them in action, and have it turned into a framed portrait.

If your beloved performer is a child wonder, opt for a kiddie version of this gift. The ballet wall decal below is an inexpensive but pretty gift for a budding talent.

 

8. For a tech guru

Techie friends are always on the lookout for gadgets and accessories that make their jobs easier and more efficient. Thankfully, you don't have to spend $$$ to get them the latest phone or computer. An affordable but useful accessory, such as a tech-savvy desk organizer, would be nice enough.

 

9. For a chef

Chefs have to stand a lot of heat in the kitchen, and they have to stay on top of it, too. So what gift could be better than this funny-snarky kitchen wall decor? Well, a Sub-Zero fridge would actually be better, but let's face it, this wall sign is more realistic for our budget.

10. For a soldier

Whether your spouse is in the Army or your dad is in the Navy, a personalized dog-tag pendant could accompany them everywhere they go. It's even sweeter if you get matching pendants so you both keep each other close despite the distance.

 

11. For an athlete or sports coach

Sports equipment may be the first thing in mind when looking for presents for a sportsperson. But for a truly one-of-a-kind gift, give them something customized. The sports-inspired name wall art above would look great in their bedroom or office.

 

12. For a parent

Of course, we can't forget the most important job of all: parenting. It's a 24/7 vocation, a lifelong career, and a vital element in anyone's life. Express your appreciation in a heartwarming way, such as through a loving wall art that they can see daily. (Find a lot more ideas for your parents and grandparents here.)
