    I know it's a little early, but I was wondering what are some good Xmas gifts for my vets? My vets are so awesome I'd like to give them something nice. I am a crafter, so I can make things, too.

    A baked goodie? (Probably without chocolate.) Or a framed counted cross-stitched sign with a sweet pet related quote?

    What kind of crafts do you do? Maybe something personal, like a picture of their dog(s)/cat(s). I also do crafts, mainly sketches, paintings, needle point, kniting, crocheting (you can knit/crochet pictures also), etc.

    I make skincare, can craft with paper, paint, draw... but I think I may be too ambitious. I have a new baby and finding time to do things is tricky. :lol:

    I second baked goods/fruit basket/something edible... don't forget, your vets are part of a team of techs and office staff who also deserve a big thank you! Something the whole office can share is always a good idea.

    Vets like food, vet techs like food, animal care techs, front desk like food, managers like food. Yes something for the team because without them, no matter how great the vet, your experience would be miserable.

    Trust me I know.

    It's done. I put together a foodie basket for the whole office (I hope). I included Christmas teas, gingerbread cookies, peppermint bark, fudge, shortbread, peanut brittle, etc and apple chips, too.

    I hope they'll like it!

    Every year I buy a big box of candy and take it in to my vet's office. I don't know how much of it my vet sees, but the staff loves it and IMO they're the backbone of the practice. They're the people who get me in right away when I call in a panic, take care of my special requests and who make sure everything runs smoothly.

    That sounds wonderful! I am sure they will really appreciate it.

    Happy holidays!

    I do the same as Ann. A nice box of candy.
