4. Personalized Tumbler Mug
Even the doctor that has everything still has to take a drink now and then. Help them stay hydrated (or caffeinated) in style with this durable and beautiful personalized tumbler.
Available in multiple sizes and colors, these tumblers keep beverages blazing hot or freezing cold for hours on end. Each one includes free personalization, which you can modify however you like to add or change the text from what is shown above.
Plus you can get great bulk discounts when ordering tumblers for the entire staff. (And yes, the bulk rates apply even when you are personalizing each individual mug!)
5. Caduceus Pen Set
Really? A pen set? Why, yes! The better question is, why not?
Doctors write quite a lot, whether it’s prescriptions, special instructions or explanations, research papers, you name it. And they need a pen to do it!
Of course it’s really easy to lose pens, too… so help your doctor keep track of theirs with this pretty wooden pen set and case from Etsy.
This set includes two checkered pens (hard to lose!) as well as a beautiful emblem of the Caduceus staff on the top.
6. Personalized Portfolio
Any professional can benefit from a quality portfolio to keep track of significant documents.
Technology makes that super easy to do, but there’s still nothing quite like a physical notebook to keep important papers organized.
This particular portfolio can be personalized with your doctor’s name, making it that much more special. You can also choose between seven different designs.
7. Custom Engraved Bird Feeder
After a trying day at the office taking such good care of others, what could be more relaxing than to sit back on the porch and watch the birds?
Give your beloved doctor the gift of a peaceful afternoon or evening with this personalized cedar bird feeder from Northwest Gifts.
Made to withstand the outdoor elements for years, this bird feeder can be custom engraved on both front and back panels, with a logo and/or any text your want.
This bird feeder is also an excellent gift idea for the physician who’s getting ready to retire.
8. Graze Box Subscription
From pediatricians to emergency room physicians, doctors have extremely stressful jobs. While they’re busy taking care of everyone else, it’s very important for them to remember to take care of themselves.
Remind the doctor in your life to do that (and in a fun way) with this healthy snack box subscription. Tell them what your doc prefers, and the pros at Graze will carefully choose delicious, and nutritious, snacks just for them.
Each subscription box includes four different snacks to try, and will be delivered to your doctor’s home or office every two weeks.
9. Vintage Style Doctor’s Plaque
From A Simpler Time, this series of doctor and medical specialty plaques are crafted from real wood planks and distressed by hand for that vintage feel.
This particular plaque is for a cardiologist, and features a relief-carved heart in the center along with memorable quotes. Choose the optional hanging name plate for a personalized touch. Mounting hardware comes with your order so it will be ready to hang.
Does your doctor specialize in something besides cardiology? Browse through many other vintage-style medical plaques right here. And for medical-themes plaques that have a more contemporary look (and can be customized more as well!) check out the Pacific Crest series from Northwest Gifts.
10. Floral Anatomy Poster Art
This interesting anatomy poster art is equal parts beautiful and quirky, making it the perfect gift for that doctor whose personality matches!
Each poster measures 11.7″ x 16.5″ and features a skeleton wrapped in a colorful floral design, atop a classical text background.
BONUS Gift Idea: Funny Doctor Mug
Doctors dedicate years and years of their life to studying and understanding a particular field of medicine. But when it gets right down to it, even the very best of them aren’t always appreciated for all they know and do.
Using humor, show your doctor how much you respect their knowledge and care by gifting them this funny mug.
Even the doctor who has everything would find this mug funny, and would most likely accept it with no problem!
We hope you found it helpful to browse these 10 (well, 11) gifts for doctors who have everything!
