Wondering what to give that doctor in your life this holiday? Here's a list that contains a variety of gifts we guarantee they will love, arranged by price, to fit all budgets.
This affordably-priced coffee mug, made of high-quality ceramic, looks just like a prescription bottle. Pardon the pun, but it’s just what the doctor ordered.
The prescription: Drink one mug by mouth, repeat until awake and alert.
This beautifully designed, handmade typographic poster of the Hippocratic Oath would look great when framed for hanging on the doctor's wall. You can choose from a 250gsm glossy card or 165gsm print paper.
With all the textbooks and journal articles doctors have to peruse, little time is left to read for pleasure, which is where a gift of membership to Audible.com comes in handy.
Your doctor can download audiobooks for just about any device and listen while at the gym, driving to and from work, or, in the case of Ambassador Travel Team members, traveling en route to the next assignment.
Members can save 30 percent off the regular price, earn credits toward book purchases, and, for a limited time, receive a $30 Amazon gift card.
Price: 30-day free trial; $14.95 per month after that.
What doctor wouldn't appreciate a high-quality, personalized pen set for Christmas? The sleek ballpoint pen pictured here is constructed of black metal plating and silver accents with a clear lacquer finish.
The pen case, made of engineered wood grain, has a rich black satin lacquer finish. The site, Personalization Mall, offers many options from which to choose.
This handmade t-shirt from Etsy makes the perfect stocking stuffer. And at just $30, it's a steal!
The Physician's Prayer personalized museum-quality canvas print artfully displays a heartwarming verse to inspire, encourage, and reinforce a doctor's commitment to healing.
You can customize the canvas with two lines of personalization featuring your choice of the physician's name, specialty, medical school, or practice. The canvas is printed with solvent inks to protect against UV and environmental damage and is stretched on wood frame bars, and then gallery-wrapped, ready to hang.
Canvas measures 12" x 18."
Send the doctor's photo to OSOG and get a personalized caricature in return. The company does not offer paper print files but will send back a high-resolution (300 dpi) large-size digitized picture via email that you can take to your local printer to do the printing.
While you can't give a physician the gift of sleep, you can present him or her with the next best thing: a white noise sound machine. It's suitable for any sleep environment where unwanted, disturbing, or intrusive noise is a problem. (And the ED certainly qualifies.)

Who doesn't like cookies, especially this time of year, and even more, especially when the doctor has to spend the holiday working a shift?
This cheerful gift tower from Cheryl’s comes filled with an assortment of 42 gourmet cookies and brownies that include buttercream frosted cookies, pecan butterballs, cake slices, and delicious butter shortbread cookies. Each tower includes a hangtag with the message of your choice.
We know doctors spend so much time and energy during their shifts that little of either is left to focus on mundane activities like cleaning the house. A gift of three hours’ worth of cleaning services can alleviate that need altogether.
The service, provided by Amazon Home Services, includes:
- Dusting, mopping, and vacuuming all rooms;
- Trash removal to outdoor cans;
- Kitchen counters, floor, and stove cleaning;
- Bathroom vanity, tub, and toilet cleaning.
The cleaning professional provides all the supplies, too.
Price: $110 for 3 hours
Bonus: Leather Canvas Adventurer Duffel
This leather canvas duffel bag from Tom's makes the ideal gift for a traveling doctor. At $348, it's more expensive than the other gifts on the list, but certainly a beautiful purchase.
The duffel features full-grain leather, a roomy interior, and several pockets to store those needed travel items.
