21 Optometry Gift Ideas

BTW, why was the phone wearing glasses?

Because it lost all of its contacts.

1. VINTAGE PERSONALIZED OPTOMETRIST PLAQUE

Crafted in the USA and personalized to order, this Vintage Personalized Optometrist Plaque features a hand-carved 3-dimensional eyeglasses applique and witty old-fashioned banter.

The optional hanging nameplate can be personalized with the name and/or business name, and you can hang multiple nameplates for offices with several optometrists.

2. WOODEN SPECTACLE HOLDER

Indian wood bust-style eyeglass holder. This creative display looks great on any optometrist’s desk or nightstand. Use as a fun display or to actually hold your glasses!

3. BE THE GOOD YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD

This is a great optometrist gift because it isn’t quite as goofy and obvious as most other optometrist quotes. It’s a classic quote, so it can be done in a variety of ways that don’t scream out “optometrist’s office!!”

The handmade design pictured above takes the form of an eye chart, which is pretty clever. You can also have this quote personalized on a variety of other products – in the eye chart style, or as a simple quote, or even with the recipient’s name or optometry business name added to it.

Here are a few options for items on which you can engrave or print this quote:

Note that the price of each of those items includes personalization, so you can put anything you like on the item including logos, names, quotes, and more.

 How many optometrists does it take to change a light bulb? One? Or two? Or one? Or…. Two?

7. MY EYE DOCTOR SAYS I NEED GLASSES

If they’re into wine more than coffee, try this optometrist humor sign on for size. The idea is that they can prescribe the perfect “pair” for their “condition.”

10. VINTAGE PLAQUE WITH HOBBY THEME

Just one of many themes… Browse more vintage plaques here.

You don’t have to get an optometrist something that says “Optometrist” all over it.

Consider a gift like one of our personalized vintage plaques that reminds them of the things they love outside of work: Golf, tooling around in the garage, going fishing, enjoying the fruits of their labor in a luxurious home bar.

11. PERSONALIZED TUMBLER

Here’s another optometrist gift idea that may or may not have anything to do with optometry. Vacuum-sealed tumblers are all the rage right now, and even better is one that is customized.

You can go with the doctor’s name, business name, or logo; you can do a cute optometrist quote (borrow one from one of the other gift ideas listed here), or you can keep it simple with a name or simple line art depicting a favorite hobby.

When personalizing one of our YETI or RTIC tumblers, the options are endless!
