Dr. Jen Chatfield’s favorite things

Want to wrap up your holiday in a perfect bow? There’s no better place to turn than Dr. Jenifer Chatfield’s list of favorite things.  Her selection includes great gift ideas for everyone on your list.

Dr. Jen hand picked these great gifts from Amazon.  And, if you use AmazonSmile to place your order,  Amazon donates 0.5% of the price  to the charitable organization of your choice.  Dr. Jen added Mission Rabies as her AmazonSmile organization and you can, too!

For kids: 

  • Having a background in conservation,  Dr. Jen recommends Conservation Critters plush toys for the kids on your list.  These cute toys are not only affordable (most are less than $13), they also teach kids the importance of conservation.

  • Studies show that the more words that are in a child’s language world, the more words they will learn, and the stronger their language skills are when they reach kindergarten. Dr. Jen’s lifelong love of lemurs makes her next pick sort of easy: How to Lose a Lemur board book by Frank Preston-Gannon. The parade of lovable lemurs will have children laughing and reading this again and again.

For your girlfriends

  • Being the co-host of Vet Candy’s Podcast and one of the most sought after speakers on the circuit (she’s speaking at VMX and WVC, so check her out), Dr. Jen likes to keep her voice speaker ready with a hot cup of tea. Her favorites have fruit essence, like peach or raspberry, but she really likes variety. Tea Forte has a limited edition tea gift set with five festive winter spiced tea varieties – Rum Raisin Biscotti, Ginger Snap, Raspberry Ganache, Spiced Ginger Plum and Winter Chai.

  • Even though most days you will find Dr. Jen wearing khakis, boots, and t-shirt while she works on her farm, she’s a girly girl at heart. One of her favorite things is makeup, and the more glittery the better. Too Faced Let it Snow Girl makeup set includes 18 Shades Eyeshadow Palette, 4 Shades Breakaway Palette, 2 Shades Breakaway Palette & Better Than Sex Mascara!

Veterinary friends:

  • Dr. Jen’s brother and co-host Dr. Jason Chatfield is also a veterinarian. Being the Vice President of Zoological Operations at Miami’s Jungle means that Dr. Jason has to wear a uniform everyday. Dr. Jen’s pick for Dr. Jason and anyone else who has a work place dress code is crazy animal socks. Socks N Socks has a great set of men’s cotton dress socks that are colorful with trendy animal patterns.

  • Dr. Jen is obsessed with infectious disease prevention. She spends a lot of her free time volunteering with medical reserve corps (her mom, Jeri does, too).
