#2: AirPods For Tuning Out the Noise
Everyone loves AirPods!
Whether they’re for blocking out the noise of the bustling hospital cafeteria or jamming to some wire-free tunes on an afternoon jog, you can’t go wrong giving a set of AirPods as a graduation gift for a medical student.
And their compact size means they can easily be dropped into the pocket of their scrubs or tossed in a gym bag.
#3: A Fancy Pen for Signing Their Name a Hundred Times a Day
With their residency ahead, it's time to write like a real doctor. Give them a pen that they'll love — and everyone else will try to steal because it writes so ridiculously smooth.
Disclaimer: No guarantees this pen will improve their penmanship, ‘cause after all, doctors have a reputation to uphold.
#4: Aromasthesia’s Alprazolam Candle for Encouraging Relaxation
Who couldn't use a little more serenity?
Tiffany Moon’s luxury Aromasthesia’s medical candles are triple-scented and crafted with the highest quality essential oils and a premium blend of coconut and soy wax.
With its sweet smell of jasmine flowers, Aromasthesia’s Alprazolam candle evokes images of rays of sunlight shining through a bamboo forest and is sure to help lower the grad’s heart rate and blood pressure after a long day in the clinic.
#5: Dansko Clogs to Keep Them Feeling Great On Even the Toughest Shift
Dansko leather clogs are the fav of pretty much every medical worker.
Their ergonomic design helps reduce leg, back, and foot pain by reducing stress on joints and absorbing shock.
Seriously, the comfort is unbelievable — and they're even slip-resistant on wet, dry, and oil-wet surfaces.
These go-to shoes come in a fun variety of colors and patterns, but basic black is always a great choice.
In your search for the best graduation gifts for medical students, take my word for it — you can’t go wrong with Danskos.
#6: The Ultimate Caffeine Fix for a Quick Burst of Energy
Give a gift that will help them power through those insanely loooooong double shifts — chocolate-covered espresso beans!
These decadent, organic, dark chocolate-smothered espresso beans will give the perfect jolt of energy to help them finish strong.
And they can even pop a few in their scrub pocket to have on hand at a moment's notice anytime their eyelids start to droop.
#7: A Healthy Snack for a Bite to Eat Between Patients
With the bazillion demands of medical life, doctors can struggle to eat healthy meals — or sometimes, to even find the time to eat at all.
These curated snack boxes are an easy-peasy way to quiet a rumbling tummy.
The grad will receive a package that’s filled to the brim with healthy, snacky treats, including things like specialty popcorn, nut butters, granola, energy bars, and herbal teas.
And it even comes with a signature cotton tote for storing all the goodness.
#8: A Fancy Water Bottle for On-the-Go Hydration
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
They’re going to be preaching it to their patients all day long — but getting their own daily needed intake of water may be a whole other story.
With this gift idea for graduating medical students, staying hydrated is something they’ll look forward to.
Not only does Hydro Flask make the coolest water bottles around, but they're also rugged and durable — and available in all the fun colors.
#9: Aromasthesia’s Atropine & Dexmedetomidine Candles for Energy and Focus
Everybody needs a little extra boost every now and then.
The Atropine candle features a refreshing blend of tropical florals and fruits that is sure to help speed them up, while the Dexmedetomidine candle’s pink grapefruit, bergamot, and hint of clove are just what the doctor ordered to help them smoooooooth out some of those inevitable bumps on the road of life.
