Lives of Doctor Wives: Medical Related Christmas Gifts?

Medical Related Christmas Gifts?

Merry *almost* Christmas everyone! I thought it would be fun to see if anyone got their spouse something medical related for Christmas. I found a couple of things that are under the tree for my husband:

1) Long sleeve shirts to wear under his scrubs. Ladies, whole other conversation but we should discuss whether you have to wash his scrubs or if he works at a hospital with laundry service because MAN am I washing a lot of scrubs...
Anyway, my husband likes the more silky athletic materials under his scrubs so I found some Under Armor ones I hope he likes...
2) A Clipboard. Haha! He has been saying for weeks he wanted to find a clipboard that is clear and you can put a sheet of paper inside the board part so he can have a reference sheet of common drugs/doses/etc. I found one online.
3) A scrub cap. Since my husband is doing anesthesia he wears scrub caps and generally surgeons/anesthesiologists have unique caps. I got him one from with our college logo on it (he has several others like it).
4. Pens, he uses a lot of black gel pens to sign orders and such.

I think that's it! Be sure to keep it a secret! Did you find anything medical related to give your spouse/SO?

I'm not getting my husband anything medicine related this year, but he's gotten tons of medicine gifts in the past. An illustrated hard-bound copy of Gray's Anatomy... A stethoscope... An ophthalmoscope...

I love the idea of getting him undershirts to wear under scrubs. My husband has only two long-sleeved undershirts, but they are getting more important now that it's snowy!

Nothing medical this year. He has gotten scrub caps in the past and his stethoscope for graduation. Every now and then he gets a funny OB/GYN gift from family or friends. I like the pregnant woman coffee cup the most. I agree with the whole washing of scrubs. My husband prefers to wear scrubs into work rather than clothes and then have to change into scrubs once he gets there. Clothes has a tendency to get lost at the hospital if he wears them in to work. I am pretty sure he changes at least once a day at work too.

Not ACTUALLY medical. As a joke of sorts, and just for fun, I got J the game Operation. It was on sale very cheap at Target and I just couldn't pass it up :) We are kids at heart. :) When he opened it (we celebrate Channukah) he had to immediately take it out of the box and play with it. :)

I didn't get him anything actually medical either but I did get him a T-shirt that says "Please Don't Ask...I'm studying for Boards"...

He loved it...we exchanged gifts a little early this year :D.

I was actually going to buy my husband some long-sleeved T's until he told me he gets way too hot! Where did you find the clipboard? He's been wanting one, and one with space to put a document in sounds perfect. Also, do you have any good online sources for cheap scrubs? I am washing the few we have all the time.

I got the clipboard here:
It's VERY nice quality!!

We don't have to buy his scrubs because he can check out an unlimited number of sets from the hospital (we still have to wash them though!). However, I do know lots of outlet malls have a store dedicated to scrubs and medical uniforms. I can't remember the name right now though...

Happy holidays to you all :)

Oh gosh no my husband would die if I got him anything related to residency for the holidays. Isn't the point of the holidays to get away from all of that?

In reference to the scrubs- I am not aware of a hospital who doesn't have scrub service. I simply have a scrub basket in my husbands bathroom and I refuse to wash them. They go in a trash bag back to the hospital and he gets fresh ones.

I got my husband a white coat clipboard (it folds up to fit in the coat pocket). He dropped a hit a few months ago, but had forgotten all about the clipboard until he opened it yesterday. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

I got Ed some PacSun shirts to go under his scrubs or to double as nice casual shirts for going out. Also, from Cafe Press, I got a TShirt that says, "Professional Gas Passer" and has a stethoscope on it. very cute. It's subtle enough that he will wear it and really thought it was funny. :)

I don't usually get my husband anything medical related. He wouldn't like that. Although I did buy him a down ice scraper mitten thing and a scarf because we accepted a job in Madison, WI and he will need them :)
I used to have to wash his scrubs during residency. He had swiped so many pairs that we had three large garbage bags to return when he graduated, haha. I don't have to wash scrubs now because the hospital he is at only lets employees check out one pair at a time. I'm loving it because they also have a white coat service. I haven't had to iron a white coat in over a year and half.

A while back, got J a t-shirt that says, "trust me, I'm a doctor." He totally loved it and still wears it to this day. :-P (We love sarcasm. :-D)
