Holiday Gift Ideas for Med Students and Residents

It’s little early, but list the great ideas you’ve found for your med student/medical resident:

compression socks
comfortable shoes for rounding/wards (clogs, running shoes)
nutrition bars
crockpot or instant pot
house/apartment cleaning service
Uber Eats, Door Dash, Postmates, GrubHub, etc gift cards
coffee shop gift cards

Guess my kid and her cohorts are weird. They’ve requested pens and lanyards that hold them. Something like this:
I didn’t know how often they lose pens, but I guess there are certain areas in hospitals where they lose their signals on their phones.

Good socks. My kid wanted smartwool and bombas. She is getting both.

Yes to power bars of some kind. My kid keeps them in a pocket at all times…sometimes she doesn’t get a meal break.

I’m not sure how it will work out other years, but this year our resident is getting plane tickets for him and his GF to stay with us in USVI for almost 2 weeks in Feb. Coming from the Snow Belt in NY, he’s really looking forward to it, esp since it will be his first true time off since June. We just have to hope the weather and airlines cooperate.

If you want to splurge a little, it’s hard to go wrong with a Littman stethoscope is they don’t already have one.
