In 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
For 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.
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.
Another 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.
A few suggestions include:
Doctor Business Card Holder: Crafted from recycled steel and/or copper, decorate an office or desk with the medical-themed business card holder. featured here.
Caduceus Engraved Steel Card Case: Engraved card cases make thoughtful gestures for a doctor, especially for those just starting out with a new practice or hospital. We’ve featured a three-dimensional silver option in this post, which also comes in gold. Decorating the front of this particular card case is the caduceus. The inside lid of the top cover is an ideal place to personalize.
When shopping for a doctor during the Christmas holiday, there are an array of fun and attractive ornaments that cater to medical professionals. Incorporating the doctor caduceus, Kyle Designs sells antique- and polished silver Christmas ornaments for physicians in black, purple, teal, blue, red, gold, and pink. You can also have the ornaments engraved on the back. The two shown are blue aluminum with sapphire beads, and aqua blue with peridot beads.
Out of all the office supply gifts to give a doctor, this caduceus stamp holder is a highly functional, stylish accessory that holds one roll of stamps. Available in a wide range of color combinations, it is the brushed silver stamp holder with green and lime aluminum that you see. This made-in-the-USA product measures 1-1/2″ x 1-7/8″.
Representing eight different specialties, including obstetrics, veterinarians, chiropractic medicine and general medicine, order the classic look of a rosewood pen set. PersonalizationMall.com sells one that you can customize with the engraving of your choice, such as a full name; or the name of a department, title, hospital, or medical practice.
This hand-painted, durable resin piece certainly, which also comes as a Surgeon, makes a gag gift that will get people talking.
