Christmas Gifts for Doctors

Dec 15, 2021.

Looking for a last minute Christmas gift for a Doctor you know? 2021 has been another challenging year, especially for our amazing Healthcare Professionals, so, if you know a Doctor (or a Nurse, or Healthcare Associate) who you want to show your appreciation to with a lovely gift, take a look at our handy guide below!

Coffee time!

A coffee break is precious time when you’re a Doctor, and a personal travel mug that can keep drinks hot is a fantastic gift, especially when it comes to grabbing a few sips between shifts! You could even add a voucher for their favourite coffee place so they can pick one up to or from work.

Not sure where to start when it comes to travel mug Christmas gifts? We love the range at Personalised where you can personalise your gift to make it extra special!

A meal together

Catching up with loved ones is so important, especially after the couple of years we have had! But it can be especially difficult for a Doctor to take that well-deserved time out for a lovely meal. If you know their favourite restaurant, a voucher for a meal out there, or a handwritten note with an invite to a meal could be just the tonic they need after a stressful week on the wards.

Time to de-stress

Coming home after a busy shift can be bliss, and even more so with a relaxing way to unwind… a really nice Christmas gift idea is a beautifully scented candle – to light and unwind with during a relaxing bath. We love these natural soy candles, by Russell and White, or how about a Wellbeing Diffuser? These mood-enhancing diffusers by Neom Organics help promote better sleep and ease stress with the touch of a button. Easy to use, once filled with your choice of 100% essential oils, they release a heatless, fine mist of scented vapour into the atmosphere to stimulate the senses and enhance wellbeing. We love the gentle light and the soothing sound of trickling water too!

Another great stress-buster gift is a voucher for a relaxing massage, which you can find available at all good beauty salons.

Stocking fillers

Looking for small, yet handy stocking filler gifts for a Doctor you know? Here’s our top three gift ideas!

Mobile phone sanitiser – mobile phones can be a breeding ground for germs, but handy mobile phone sanitiser wipes are such a useful gift!

Stress balls – perfect for having in your pocket, stress balls have so many benefits, as stress expert Dr. David Posen explained to the Huffington Post:  ‘The benefit of squeezing [a stress ball] is that it releases some kind of energy—it also induces you to relax. Squeezing a stress ball can also relieve arthritis and strengthen muscles in the wrist and hands.’

There’s plenty to choose from, so you may be spoilt for choice, but a great place to start is these top picks from verywellmind.

Notepad and pen – who doesn’t like a nice notepad and pen? And, if you personalise them, even better! Take a look at this lovely selection from Getting Personal and take your pick for a truly thoughtful gift.

We hope we have inspired you with our handy suggestions and here’s to a happy festive season too… Season’s Greetings to you all and happy shopping!
