Need a great gift idea for the next time the stellar doctor in your life or practice deserves a reward? Look no further.
Have you or a loved one recently received amazing treatment from your regular doctor that went above and beyond their standard excellent practice?
Is one of the doctors in the clinic you work at about to have a birthday or work anniversary that requires some kind of gift giving? Or maybe someone in your family is grinding through the hard slog of medical school or is about to graduate?
If so, here are five inspiring, useful and practical doctor gift ideas that might help you in your quest for the perfect surprise for them.
1. A fountain pen
Sure, we live in an age where nearly everything is computerised or digitised, and those old doctor jokes about how bad a doctor’s handwriting is are mostly a thing of the past. But this doesn’t detract from the fact that a really fancy fountain pen still makes for one of those traditional and classy doctor gifts.
If you have a bit of cash to splash, you might go for the classic Mont Blanc or Lamy or if you need something more affordable, the Parker or Waterman is the answer.
A fountain pen may seem a bit old school or of another time but it will always be put to good use by the doctor in your life.
2. A stethoscope
OK, maybe this one is a little cliched, and, for sure, nearly every doctor will have a stethoscope as one of the key tools of their trade. But why not give your doctor one of a range of fancy stethoscopes that are highly functional, well respected professionally and that look just that bit special?
Like these Littmann ones, that come in a range of colours and styles…or if you want something in a lower price range, you could get a personal ID tag that clips onto their regulation stethoscope. Either way, your doctor will always have you “in their hearts” once you hand over one of these!
3. Scanmarker Air Pen Scanner
If the doctor you need to buy a gift for is still very much involved in research or is a lecturer/professor at university or is a student still doing their medical degree, they will be doing a lot of reading.
To make their lives easier, this nifty bit of tech will ensure their reading or study is way more efficient – the Scanmarker Air Pen Scannercan scan 3000 characters per minute, translate over 40 languages and has a text-to-speech function. Pretty cool tech that will impress just about anyone.
4. Brainy bookends
Staying on the reading and slightly nerdy trend, and aimed for the more humorous doctor, this set of brain bookends would sit proudly in any doctor’s room supporting their reference books.
Or it could look just as good at home holding up whatever books your doctor likes to flip through in their leisure time.
5. Personal massage devices
Long days of back-to-back consulting can lead to carrying a lot of stress, sore muscles and stiff backs. While for some of us, this is the moment we go to our regular massage therapist for a body and mind relieving rub, time-poor doctors may find it more difficult.
Hand over one of these and the doctor in your life or stressed our med student is going to be thanking their stars you thought of them as their stress and sore muscles are eased away.
