Ahh, the days when life was simple, and I could use Turbo Tax to do my taxes. To be honest, we used Turbo Tax this year, but we obviously should have hired an accountant. Next year I am leaving it up to the professionals. After all, they go to school for this and take an exam to become certified.
If you are here, you are shopping for your accountant or someone you know who is an accountant. In either case, I am sure you will find these gifts for accountants to your liking. They are meant to give them a break from their hard work, as well as make their work lives easier.

Accountant gag gifts
Accountants often get a reputation for being uptight and boring because they deal with numbers. However, sometimes it is those people who really cut loose. Give them a good laugh with some toilet paper with a money print.
For fun at the office, give them a tax season clock with tax terms instead of numbers.
You can even get them math-themed underwear! This comes in styles for both men and ladies.
Gift ideas for accountants
Many people are finding it more economical to work from home. They either meet clients at their places of business, their homes, or a neutral location. Let’s face it, it saves on expensive office rent. Plus they get to use those home office tax credits. While in the past traditional briefcases worked just fine, they aren’t as practical today. Science has shown long term effects on the neck and back from carrying heavy items. A rolling laptop briefcase will protect their computer while also making space for paperwork and other office supplies needed on the go. Plus it will reduce neck and back strain.
They will also need a portable powerbank for keeping their technology charged. Clients won’t take them seriously if their battery dies in the middle of doing their taxes.
Another useful gift is a business portfolio. These can organize supplies needed such as pens, notepads, calculators, business cards, and other items for meeting with clients.
Best gifts for accountants
Accountants use the logical part of their brain all day. Give them the gift of creativity with a subscription to Masterclass. They can use their right brain to learn to play an instrument, get tips on writing that screenplay they always talked about, or unleash their inner artist. The best part is that if they start singing and realize they are tone deaf, they can switch to something else like gourmet cooking. With a subscription, they can take as many classes as they want, even some “boring” business classes.
Or you can give them an experience gift such as learning to make love potions or cocktails.
Since they use their minds all day, maybe they would like to create something physical with a 3D puzzle. They can build famous architecture, pirate ships, or even clocks.
Fitness gifts for accountants
As a writer, I know what it’s like sitting at a desk all day. When working from home you don’t even get those extra steps going to and from the car, or up the steps to your office. I recently got an under desk elliptical machine to use while working. Talk about multi-tasking!
Sometimes it is hard to get to the gym, but if they have space, a treadmill for their home office will be a life saver. They can work out while listening to podcasts, making phone calls, or just taking a break for their eyes.
I just started using a fitness tracker to monitor my steps. Keeping track reminds me to step away from the desk and move around. If they work at home, they can get some steps in while taking out the garbage, watering plants, or emptying the dishwasher. For the office, they can park further away, use the stairs instead of the elevator, and take a ten minute break to walk around outside every few hours.
Presents for accountant’s home office
Many people transitioned to working at home in recent years. For some, the change was temporary. They decided to make do with using the dining room table. However, if the change is more permanent, they will eventually need a desk. After all, it’s not always practical to put paperwork away every night so that the family can eat dinner. These adjustable desks come in different sizes so you should be able to find one that fits in the space they have. Plus an adjustable desk gives them the flexibility to switch between sitting and standing positions, which is better for their circulation.
For the times they are sitting, give them an ergonomic office chair. These provide back support.
Or you can get them a kneeling chair to improve their posture while working. This is on my wish list.
Cool gifts for accountants
I always think these look so classy in a study. They add a sense of sophistication that says, “This person has good taste.” These make nice retirement gifts for accountants too.
Another classy gift is an old world bar. I have one of these, and it always evokes conversation with guests.
A set of geode bookends will add to the classic decor while keeping their books from falling off the shelves.
Gifts for an accountant woman
If you are looking for a feminine gift, a dainty charm bracelet is elegant, but not so big it gets in the way when working.
You might want to take a look at gifts for other jobs too!
What can you gift an accountant? We all know accountants work long hours, especially during tax season. Why not give them a basket of gourmet coffee?
Sometimes they may be so busy that they don’t have time to finish a cup before it gets cold. To prevent them from suffering through that cup of cold joe, give them an electric coffee warmer. It will also save them all of those trips back and forth to the microwave.
You can even get them a mug for accountants emblazoned with some CPA humor.
Gifts for an accountant man
If you are looking for an accountant gift for him you can get a tie clip with a dollar sign.
10. Goofy Pint Glass
Funny accountant gifts
These beer pints are great for after work when accountants can let their hair down.
Thank you gifts for accountants
Everyone loves food baskets filled with tasty treats such as meats, cheeses, and sweets.
Or you can get them a relaxing thank you candle gift set to show your appreciation.
If you want a smaller token, grab an accountant themed keychain to say thanks.
Useful gifts for accountants
Sometimes accountants get stuck working into the evening hours without much time for a break. While normal insulated lunch bags are great on a regular day, they will need a large lunch bag to accommodate breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Another great option for busy accountants is a portable lunch warmer. They can heat food right at their desk. This is great if they don’t want to waste time waiting in line for the office microwave. Who knows the last time that got cleaned anyway?
To entice them to stay hydrated, you can get them a fruit infuser water bottle. Many people who aren’t big water drinkers find they drink more water when it is flavored with fruit. Plus, think of the extra vitamins they will be getting.
13. Desk Name Plate
Gifts for accountant graduate
Becoming a new accountant means it will be time to find a new job. Help them start their career by letting people know who they are with a custom desk plate.
You can also get them a certificate frame for their diploma or one for their CPA certificate.
If they have their own office, give them a custom door plate so everyone will know where to find them.
