People generally feel one of two ways about encountering anesthesia. Either they don’t know what to expect, and the thought of it makes them want to pee their pants, or they have been there done that, and are all about being put to sleep.
Let’s face it, the days of biting down on sticks, or downing hard liquor to drown pain do not sound enviable.
Whether you know and are thankful for a good anesthesiologist, and would like to give them a thank you gift, or have someone you love in this career, we have a list of anesthesiologist gift ideas to get you started. We will keep it short and sweet, like we all wish surgeries would be!

This is a good way to get those vitamins in your system for an excellent morning go-juice.
11. Organic Bird Seed Wreath
Give a festive gift, to brighten the home or office. Cool thing about this particular wreath: not only is it organically grown, harvested, and hand-crafted in Oregon, when the holidays end you can put it outside to feed the birds! That’s why it’s called the “Feast for Feathered Friends.”
12. Circulation Socks
It may sound silly, but from firsthand experience I can say, good socks make amazing presents! (The ones above are wonderful!)
