I do not have, nor know where to find, a list of all magical items in 5e. I know the list is fairly short comparatively to other D&D games.

I'd like to know if there's a weapon, or item, that allows a PC to regain HP (that isn't a one-time use item), even for short bursts.

    \$\begingroup\$ What kind of regeneration? Are you looking for any item that allows a PC to regain HP? Is it specific to worn equipment and the like? \$\endgroup\$

Ring of Regeneration

Ring, Major, Very Rare (Requires Attunement)
While wearing this ring, you regain 1d6 hit points every 10 minutes, provided that you have at least 1 hit point. If you lose a body part, the ring causes the missing part to regrow and return to full functionality after 1d6+1 days if you have at least 1 hit point the whole time.

Source: Dungeon Master's Guide, page 191

Ioun Stone, Regeneration

Wondrous Item, Major, Legendary (Requires Attunement)
[Removed unrelated effects.]

You regain 15 hit points at the end of each hour this pearly white spindle orbits your head, provided that you have at least 1 hit point.

Source: Dungeon Master's Guide, page 176

Hand of Vecna

Wondrous Item, Artifact (Requires Attunement)
[Remove full item description.]
Properties of the Eye and Hand. If you are attuned to both the hand and eye, you gain the following additional benefits:

  • [Removed unrelated effects.]
  • If you start your turn with at least 1 hit point, you regain 1d10 hit points.

Regeneration Ability

The above items give you something weaker than monster regeneration (which can be upwards of 10 HP every round, usually 20). As far as I'm aware, there's no official item which gives Regeneration of that grade to anyone. The closest you'll get is 1d10 HP every round with the Hand of Vecna, and only if you attune the Eye of Vecna as well. Both of which are Artifacts of the highest rarity, body parts of one of D&D's most-famous Liches.

    \$\begingroup\$ @NickBrown The consensus here is to provide self-contained answers, not link-only ones which need readers to go elsewhere. \$\endgroup\$ May 14, 2018 at 14:57

    \$\begingroup\$ @NickBrown Since 5e is not open material, there is no such place with all official items available. The 5e SRD only has a subset. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @NickBrown Still, linking to any Wizards Official source has it's demerits. I cite the example of Wizards deleting their community forums: rpg.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5931/… \$\endgroup\$

Nothing stops you from creating your own. Pick a ring/amulet/rock/whatever fits, decide on the regeneration effect, give it a catchy name, and you're set. I would suggest adding some penalty (cosmetic or otherwise) like perhaps a cool-down period, or the inability to sleep for 24 hours, or whatever, just to deter the player from becoming (or believing they've become) bulletproof.
