Gift Ideas for Doctors

Prescription Coffee MugIn celebration of National Doctor’s Day (March 30), which celebrates the contributions that physicians give to their communities, we’ve decided to highlight gift-giving by profession today. Usually, events are organized by healthcare organizations to commemorate the “holiday;” staff hold a lunch; and/or presents are given as a token of appreciation. However, if you’re looking for doctor-related gift ideas for all year-round, we hope the following suggestions below will get your creative juices flowing:

Prescription Bottle Coffee Mug

Barware Decanter for DoctorFor the doctor who loves his or her coffee in the morning, this coffee mug sold by Gadget Bargains comes in the shape of a prescription pill bottle that urges users to “drink one mug by mouth, repeat until awake and alert” – definitely a gift idea that accommodates someone with a sense of humor.

Doctor Barware

Themed barware is a functional gift idea for doctors who enjoy entertaining at home. Consider glass decanters, decorative bottle stoppers, personalized wine coasters, and customized glassware as gifts. The featured glass liquor decanter is sold by Gifts for Professionals, and comes with a matching bottle stopper designed for doctors. Underneath the pewter emblem, there is also enough space to add a few engraved lines.

Doctor Say Ahhhh Wine StopperAnother drink-themed gift idea for a doctor is the humorous, basswood-carved bottle stopper below, which illustrates the all-too-familiar ‘say ahhhhh’ that doctors ask of their patients. Both the stopper head and base are signed and dated by the carver, Justin Gordon.

Business Card Gifts

When shopping for someone who has recently landed their first position as a doctor, consider gifts that fall in line with their new job.
