Tips On What To Gift A Medical Student

Once in a while, we all have one or two people in our lives for who we find it nearly impossible to select the perfect gift for. More often than not, this is someone close to your heart; and you want to get something very special for them. If the gift receiver you have in mind happens to be a student, then your options are many. However, if you want to concentrate on the fact that they are medical students, then the following gift suggestions may be of use to you… 

  • A call bag – a basic necessity of any on-call doctor in training (or residency). From the basic change of clothes, to make up, hygiene products, emergency personal medications, to even a pillow or a blanket, most call bags are the staple necessity for the survival of overnight shifts. If you plan on gifting it to them, make sure it has plenty of space for them to put all their necessities in. And even though there are “traditionally shaped” doctors bags, you can choose whatever design that you think would suit your gift receiver the best.

  • Useful small electronics or equipment – the life of a medical student is unsurprisingly hectic and busy. In the initial years, they hardly make a lot of money (like most other students), and are severely deprived of sleep. Any electronic or equipment that will make their life more comfortable will make a great gift. And whether it’s a power bank for charging their phone on the go, or a Dermlite to add to their medical equipment Australia collection for the future, we are sure they’ll appreciate is either way.
  • Gift cards for 24-hours restaurants – apart from sleep, if there is one more thing that most medical students are deprived of, it’s good food. Especially during the house doctor stage of their education. Presenting them with a fridge full of “heat and eat” freezer foods will definitely count as a thoughtful gift. However, if your culinary skills or your own hectic schedule prevents you from doing this, even a gift card from 24-hour restaurant or diner close to their home will work; especially if it’s valid for a long period of time!
  • Creative jewelry – most young people get a kick out of jewelry. This is especially true of it’s the fun kind of jewelry. If your medical student gift receiver enjoys wearing jewelry, then consider getting them just that; only with their medical life in mind. And it could be anything from a caduceus pendant to a DNA ring.
  • Slip on shoes for when on the run – like most students, medical students too spend a large part of their day o their feet. Needless to say, comfortable slip on shoes will make a great gift to anyone like this; as it’s practical and useful.
