10 Gift Ideas for Your Favorite Pharmacist

DECEMBER 04, 2014
Pharmacists work hard all year to keep their patients healthy and safe, so why not surprise your favorite pharmacist with a fun, original holiday gift? You can look like a rock star without breaking the bank – and spare your pharmacist ANOTHER coffee mug, necktie, or T-shirt. Here are 10 unique, creative, and affordable gift options that cost less than $50:
  1. I’m a firm believer that every pharmacist should consume coffee. My coffee thermos is my morning lifeblood. I use the best in the business. But if you don’t think it will fit your style, here’s a list of the best coffee mugs on Amazon (highest rated).
  2. For the pharmacist who is also a wine lover, consider the Bellaa Hand Made Designer Wine Holder. This sturdy holder is eco-friendly, functional, and decorative, and it encourages a healthy dose of wine.
  3. If a wine holder isn’t your pharmacist’s style, you might consider these Pharmacist Etched Wine Glasses (Set of 2) as a comical gift option.
  4. Give your pharmacist a break from reading medical news and journals with Letters to a Young Pharmacist: Sage Advice on Life & Career from Extraordinary Pharmacists. Perfect for pharmacists of all ages, this compilation of personal letters provides advice on everything from work/life balance to avoiding mistakes.
  5. Want an alternative to a ho-hum necktie? Add a bit of pizazz to your pharmacist’s everyday wardrobe with these Silver Pharmacy Rx Cuff Links.
  6. The female pharmacist on your list can dress up her work attire with this World’s Best Pharmacist Expandable Triple Wire Adjustable Bracelet.
  7. Pharmacy tote bags are perfect for almost any purpose. Tote bags are available in a range of styles, from comical to conservative.
  8. A whimsical business card holder is a fun addition to any pharmacy counter. A version with a male pharmacist is also available.
  9. When your pharmacist is on the go, he or she can look sharp and professional with the Pharmacy Business Card Case.
  10. An Engraved iPhone Case Cover is available in a variety of colors and can be personalized to help your pharmacist stay connected in style. A variety of cases are also available for other cell phones.
If you truly can’t resist the coffee mug/T-shirt/necktie option, there are many options to choose from. Try the Prescription Coffee Mug, the “Trust Me. I’m A Pharmacist” T-Shirt, or the Pills Allover Tie.

No matter what gift you decide on, your pharmacist will surely appreciate your thoughtful gesture – especially if you grab him or her coffee.
