10 gifts perfect for doctors you may not know you needed
Do you need some inspiration on what to get your colleagues for Christmas? Or perhaps you are sick of getting gifts you won’t use from friends and family?
This is a list of 10 gifts perfect for doctors which you can use to inspire your colleague’s gifts or share with your friends and family so they get it right.
1. Temperature Control Smart Mug
Just poured yourself that much-needed coffee and your pager goes off? Your coffee will stay warm between patients if someone gets you a Temperature Control Smart Mug. **Cost around $60 - $150 **
2. Home back massager
After a long shift a back or leg massage would be nice, but who has the time (or the money) needed for nightly relief. If someone gets you a home-back massager you can pamper yourself when it suits you. **Cost around $60 - $200 **
3. A one-year meditation subscription
Many of the doctors we’ve spoken about burnout with say that meditation has been life-changing! You may not know you need this gift yet, but trust us you’ll enjoy it. We recommend Sam Harris or Deepak Chopra! Cost around $80 - $150
4. Apple watch
If we didn’t know better we would think Apple watches and doctors had a paid partnership, that’s how popular these are around the hospital! There are so many ways an Apple watch can be useful to a doctor! Cost around $300 - $800
5. A pre-made meals subscription
A pre-made meals subscription or voucher sends tasty and nutritious meals straight to the doorstep of the recipient. This could be a great affordable gift suggestion that would alleviate a couple of nights cooking after a long shift. **Cost around: $50 - $500 ( just buy 1 month or buy 12) **
6. Apple Airpods
Listen to music or audiobooks between patients and take calls and texts on the go. You honestly won't realise how amazing these are until you open them up and they automatically connect to your phone...This will be the beginning of a magical relationship, trust us. Cost around $200 - $350
7. An audiobook
Books are a great and affordable gift, but your busy lifestyle and career may mean you do not have time to read hardcovers, if so, why not ask your friends and family to get you an audiobook? You can listen between patients, whilst you get ready for work, or in the car on your way to work. Cost around $20 - $40
8. Fun socks!
Make sure you've got the best socks on Crazy Socks 4 Docs Day by putting funky socks on your Christmas wish list. This is also a great and affordable gift to get your colleagues. Cost around $20 - $40

There are so many reasons why a Nespresso machine is the perfect gift for a doctor. Make effortless, affordable, and environmentally friendly coffee every morning, or ask for a Mini Nespresso which you could take to work. Cost around $100 (Mini Nespresso) - $1000 (full package!)
10. Air fryer
An air fryer is easy to use, easy to clean and allows you to make quick healthy meals. Put it on your Christmas list to find out what all the fuss is about. Cost around $100 - $150
