Best Gifts for Psychologists

Updated on October 20, 2014

My Favorite Gift Ideas for Psychologists

On this page I've tried to feature the best gifts for psychologists. These gift ideas could be graduation gifts, thank-you gifts, gifts for coworkers, Christmas gifts, etc.

Some of these gifts are pretty funny and really cute! Some feature famous psychologists like Freud, while others feature imagery of the brain's neurons and other scientific gift ideas.

"Freudian Sips" Funny Coffee Mug - "When you say one thing but mean your Mother..."

Freudian Sips Coffee Mug - Undo Years Of Repression While You Drink Your Coffee - Comes in a Fun Gift Box

This is sure a great mug that might be the start of many client-therapist conversations!

 

Phrenology Head Statue - An Unusual Gift for the Psychologist

Authentic Models Porcelain Phrenology Head Bust
Authentic Models Porcelain Phrenology Head Bust

Phrenology is the study of the brain based on how the head looks from the outside... It's a science from the 1800s which is now pretty much discredited, but it's a bizarre kind of science and I'm sure that psychologists would get a kick out of this.

 

Sigmund Freud Plush Doll - Great Conversation Piece for their Desk!

Sigmund Freud - Little Thinker - Plush Doll

He is soft and he will spend many hours listening to you.... for free! :)

 

Freudian Slippers - Hilarious Gift Idea! - When you wiggle your toes, Freud's tongue wiggles!

Freudian Slippers - Comfy Plush Slip In Footwear - Size Large

"Walk in the Master's Footsteps"....... You really can walk in someone else's shoes! :)

 

Set of Brain Bookends - Psychologists usually have lots of books!

These unique bookends would look great in the psychologist's office.

 

Funny "Psychologist Parking Only" Novelty Sign - "Violators will go Nuts"

Psychologist - Parking Signs - Picture Art - Peel & Stick Vinyl Wall Decal Sticker Size : 9 Inches X 18 Inches - 22 Colors Available
Psychologist - Parking Signs - Picture Art - Peel & Stick Vinyl Wall Decal Sticker Size : 9 Inches X 18 Inches - 22 Colors Available

Put this parking sign up in their garage, driveway, or work parking spot for some laughs! This would make a great surprise gift or gag gift.

This high quality sign features a psychologist with his patient on the couch.

 

"Don't listen to the voices in your head - Listen to your Psychologist" - Great Coffee Mug! This is funny!

Don't listen to the voices in your head Listen to your Psychologist Coffee Mu...
Don't listen to the voices in your head Listen to your Psychologist Coffee Mu...

I think this would make a great gift for any Psychologist. You can't really go wrong with this one! If you want to make the gift extra special, you could always put something inside the mug. Maybe some money, a gift card, movie tickets, candy, coffee or tea samples, jewelry, etc.

 

Freudian Slips Sticky Pads - Unique Gift for Note Takers

This is a salt and pepper shaker, although it's hard to tell from the picture.

 

Fun Book ~ Kind of a Joke - I'm sure you've experienced Athazagagoraphobia!

The Paranoid's Pocket Guide to Mental Disorders You Can Just Feel Coming On
The Paranoid's Pocket Guide to Mental Disorders You Can Just Feel Coming On

Great gag gift for the psychology major, psychologist, or wannabee therapist!

(By the way, Athazagagoraphobia is "the feeling that you've forgotten something important")

 

Carl Jung's THE RED BOOK - Amazing Collectible Book - HUGE with illustrations!

The Red Book (Philemon)
The Red Book (Philemon)

This book was the last of Carl Jung's work to remain unpublished and hidden from the public until a few years ago. This book not only features his written work translated into English, but also 212 of Carl Jung's illustrations.

This collectible volume is a treasure trove for any psychologist who has studied Carl Jung's theories. At over $100, it's also a pricey volume that the psychologist might be unlikely to have already bought.

 

Ice Cube Brains - A Great Party Idea! - Having a graduation party? Try these for a twist!

Fun Freeze Brain Shaped Ice Cube Tray Makes 4 Cubes

How about some brains in your soda pop?

This ice cube tray produces ice cubes that look like brains. Great idea for the psychologist who has studied the brain.

 

Tote Bag based on Pavlov's Dog Experiment - It's a Famous Psychology Experiment

"Does the name Pavlov Ring a Bell?"

The scientist Pavlov is famous for the "conditioned reflex"... He studied how dogs salivate in reaction to hearing a bell (and expecting food). Maybe it sounds unlikely, but this reaction has a lot to do with modern day psychology. Any psychology student or graduate would know about Pavlov's experiments.

The Best Psychology Articles from Scientific American - Great Book Gift Idea

Best of the Brain from Scientific American: Mind, Matter, and Tomorrow's Brain
Best of the Brain from Scientific American: Mind, Matter, and Tomorrow's Brain

I always like compilations of the best writings from magazines... Lots of good stuff to read all in one book!

 

Thank you for visiting!

I wish much success in finding the right product to celebrate your special occasion!

Any thoughts on gifts for psychologists?
