Humorous Gifts for Doctors

Laughter is the best medicine for the doctor that spends his day dealing with coughing, sneezing and bodily fluids. Instead of giving a gift that shows you recognise his professional side, offer one that shows his human side with something that makes him chuckle and remember why he went into the business. The perfect humorous gift for a doctor may not be the easiest thing to find, but with a little patience and searching, you will offer a gift that really makes his day.


Give the gift that shows both her professional side and personal side with a custom drawn picture of her in full medical attire, only in a humorous setting. A picture of the doctor will be required. Submit it along with a description of the setting you would like and you have a portrait unlike any other. Possible ideas include the surgeon standing over a patient on the table with the surgeon holding a scalpel in one hand and a "how to" book in the other. Other options include the family doctor crying while a smiling child is giving her a needle.

Infectious Clothing Motif

Give a gift that makes him remember the good old days of patients' coughing and sneezing --- and much worse --- on his tie by presenting him with his own infectious tie. He can proudly wear a tie with a number of infectious diseases from which to choose, such as the dental plaque tie for dentists and the Ebola tie for the internal medicine practitioner. If he already has too many ties, go with the infectious scarf to add some humour to dress attire while keeping him warm in the winter. Top off the gift with some infectious bottoms and the package is complete. With a high-quality elastic band, these boxers feel comfortable and display one of many infectious diseases.

Stuffed Animals

Stuffed animals, such as a pretty bear or bunny rabbit, are cute and cuddly. Many varieties of disease-themed stuffed animals are available that will make her laugh. One option is the diarrhoea plush doll to help remind her of what she worked with during medical school. At night, she can cuddle up with the sleeping sickness plush doll that is sure to offer interesting dreams. Plush dolls vary in size from 3 inches for the mini doll up to 20 inches for the large size, and they come in a variety of colours, depending on the disease.

Intravenous Lamp

We all need lights to see around the home or office and the doctor is no exception. Instead of a traditionally stylish lamp, go with one that matches his professional style with an intravenous lamp. Designed by Christian Maas, the intravenous lamp hides the electrical wires with rubber tubing, the same kind that is used with an actual intravenous, to give the ultimate effect on appearance. The lamp incorporates normal-sized light bulbs allowing for traditional white, or you can be creative and use a red tinted bulb.
