Thank You Gifts for Doctors That Refer Patients to Other Doctors

Some doctors work almost solely off of referrals. That means that when a patient goes to a general practitioner with a problem, he sends her to a specialist, such as a dermatologist, cardiologist or a obstetrician. And when a doctor refers a lot of patients to another doctor, a thank you gift might be in order. Choose something professional, but that shows your appreciation for this business relationship.


A plant is a particularly good gift idea for a doctor who has his own office because they can help liven up a waiting room. But doctors without an office also could use a plant. He could take it home with him or place it inside his office. Choose a plant that is low maintenance so that he doesn't have to worry about keeping the plant alive. Plants like peace lilies, philodendrons and spider plants make hardy office plants.


Choose a bottle from a local winery or a local vineyard for something a little different. If you know that the doctor enjoys a particular type of wine, such as Chardonnay or merlot, go with that type. If you want, give her a bottle of wine along with a set of crystal wine glasses.

Gift Card

Choose a gift card to a local restaurant that is popular among people in your circle. Spend enough on the gift card that he can afford two dinners rather than only one. You could also choose a gift card to another type of business. For example, if you know that he enjoys playing golf, give him a gift card to a local golf course or pro shop. Maybe she is a fan of a particular sports team. Give her a gift card so that she can buy memorabilia from that team.

Gift Basket

Create a gift basket filled with gourmet cheeses, a cheese knife and a cheese board, for example. You could also make a gift basket filled with chocolates. Choose truffles or chocolate covered strawberries for the box, along with solid chocolate bars and chocolate covered nuts. Hot chocolate mix is another fun addition to the basket.
