    An expensive gift is bound to make a doctor, who you do not have a personal relationship with, uncomfortable. Keep the item you want to give as simple as possible to ensure it passes the intended message of gratitude.
  2. Get practical gifts
    A pen, a clock, a key chain — items the doctor can use on a daily basis. These practical items are a safe bet and will be considered to be within professional boundaries.
  3. Ask before getting the gift
    Most doctors have administration staff who keep records and tend to the patient’s welfare. If you want to get the doctor a gift and you are not sure what can be considered ideal, talk to these staff members — they are sure to advise you appropriately.
