Fun Gifts for Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants

Being an occupational therapy practitioner is a hard but rewarding job. These gifts are a fun way to show off some occupational therapy pride!

Diverse OT T-shirts and Amplify OT Merch

Designed for passionate practitioners and aspiring students, these products feature a striking image of an OT practitioner boldly holding a megaphone and exclaiming the value of OT! The Diverse OT Amplifier Series was made to represent the different occupational therapy practitioners that make up our profession.

Shirts are available in both looser (men’s) and tighter (women’s) styles with various colors, sizes, and types of shirts, including t-shirt, long sleeves, and pullovers. Eligible for Amazon Prime shipping.

The full collection is available on Amazon! Available in all the same designs as our notebooks and stickers.

Diverse OT Stickers

The Diverse OT Amplifier Line also has your favorite Amplifier as stickers as well! Stickers are about 2 inches in size and are waterproof vinyl. Perfect for water bottles, laptops, tablets, and more! Get one or collect ‘em all!

Diverse OT Notebook

Another product from the Diverse OT series is a super cute dot notebook with OT billing resources in the back. Find the Amplifier who best represents your favorite OT Practitioner, and they will love the quick resources and organization they can keep with them throughout their busy day!

Wine Glass

What better way to show your occupational therapy buddy you care about their mental health than this cute wine glass? A great way to “wine” down at the end of a long day.

Available on Etsy

Custom OT Tumbers

Long days require cups that can keep your drink hot or cold for hours at a time! I love a custom tumbler for new grads. It’s so rewarding to see your name with your new credentials listed right along side your name! These are some of my favorites on Amazon. Etsy also has a lot of great options!

Available on Amazon

OT Coffee Mugs

For the coffee or tea lover, an OT mug is a perfect addition to the mug collection. There are a lot of great ones out there, but here are some of my favs. Again, check Etsy for some other great options. I’m always pro supporting small businesses.

Tote bag

Occupational therapy practitioners have to run all over their hospital or even drive to and from clients houses in home health. This adorable and practical tote bag is a great gift to help them stay organized and carry the necessary supplies between clients!

Gifts for Occupational Therapy Students

Occupational therapy school can be overwhelming! Here are some practical gifts to help occupational therapy students thrive and feel the love.


Level II Fieldworks are a stressful time for students, but fear not! The Occupational Therapy Fieldwork Planner and Reflection Guide is just the tool they need. Not only does this document offer planning and journaling pages, but it also includes numerous crucial resources pages on communicating with a supervisor, common billing codes, Medicare plans, ROM and MMT charts, and so much more!

Available on Amazon

Clip Board

This clipboard is a go-to gift for newly graduated occupational therapy practitioners. It folds in half to conveniently fit in a scrub pocket during a busy work day. Even better is that it has a quick reference guide with detailed day-to-day information such as developmental milestones, a list of occupations, a guide to documentation, pain scale, and much more.

Available on Amazon

Coloring Book

I don’t like feeding the trope that no one knows what occupational therapy is, but I couldn’t resist recommending this coloring book. It’s hard to find something custom made for occupational therapy and this seemed like a fun satirical way to deal with daily realities of being an OT or OTA!

Available on Amazon


Help your favorite student relax with this motivational candle. Even when the exams are piling up, they can remind themselves that they are on their way to achieving their dreams.
