Doctors have a serious and stressful job. Give the medical professional in your life a unique gift that allows him to remember the difference he is making in the lives of many people and helps him relax a little. Try to avoid gag gifts that serve little purpose beyond getting a laugh. Instead, make it your goal to select a gift that is both useful and entertaining.
Every doctor needs a pen when he does patient rotations. So buy him an entertaining yet useful writing utensil--a syringe pen. This pen writes like a standard ballpoint pen, but it is shaped like a syringe and has colourful liquid in the syringe base for effect. You can have the pen imprinted with a name or message. The doctor can use it to get a few laughs from patients while recording what they need in their charts.
Old Timey Doctor's Equipment
Buy vintage doctor's equipment from online vendors and antique stores. Vintage tools such as a doctor's bag, stethoscopes, sterilizer jar and even eyeglasses are items that work together to make an impressive display in a study or office.
Weekend Study Retreat
Doctors love to learn--but they may not get the time they want and need to invest in personal research projects. Gift the doctor in your life with a weekend study retreat at a retreat centre, where he can rest, dive into his books and make some progress on projects that have been put on hold.
On-Call Emergency Kit
Doctors always are on call. Provide your loved one with an "on-call emergency kit" filled with toothpaste, a toothbrush, a hairbrush, an extra set of clothes and snack items such as granola bars, trail mix and chocolate. Another good idea is to pack a framed photo of his family. With so many hours spent away from home, a photo of loved ones can be a welcome and needed sight.
Purchase vintage medical signs from online vendors and antique stores. An example would be an old "Doctor Is In/Out" sign with a clock with movable parts. These signs can be used to decorate a room in the doctor's house or in his office at the hospital.
