Finding gifts for surgeons can be tough—especially since most people don’t understand surgeons or medical practitioners as well as, say a teacher or a contractor. On my search for the holy grail of surgeon’s gifts, I discovered these five gift ideas for surgeons:
1. Funny Tees & Mugs
Though cliché, I’m almost certain that your surgeon friend will appreciate a funny tee or mug as a gift. Zazzle has a whole collection of funny t-shirts and mugs for surgeons that you can pick from. In terms of options, there are plenty, ranging from The Eat Sleep Operate Shirt or The Trust Me I’m A Surgeon Shirt.
2. Reserved Parking Sign—World’s Best Surgeon
Nothing beats having your own personalized parking sign—and, what gift’s better for a surgeon than a parking sign that reads “Only For The World’s Best General Surgeon”.
3. Medical Neckties
Medical neckties are a great gift for your surgeon friend—especially if they appreciate something with a medical flavor to it. There are plenty of medical-themed tie options available for purchase on the web—just running a Google search gave me about 105 million results.
4. Medical Specialties Rosewood Pen Set
A rosewood pen set engraved with the surgeon’s name or the school where he or she attended medical school makes a great gift. You can have pens custom-engraved or purchase a ready-made version such as these:
5. Etched Medical Wine / Champagne
If your surgeon enjoys his drink, it might be appreciated if you gifted them with something truly their taste—an etched medical wine / champagne bottle. Each bottle is exquisitely etched, engraved and hand-painted.
