Whether you have a doctor in the family or you want to offer your doctor a gift for the holiday or as a thank you, there are many good options to choose from. Female and male doctors sometimes might appreciate similar gifts, but other gifts are more suitable particularly for female doctors.
Breast Cancer Donation
Doctors encourage and promote health. Breast cancer represents a significant health threat for women in the United States. Over 200,000 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2010, according to the organization Susan G. Komen for the Cure. A donation to a breast cancer foundation in the woman doctor's name shows you care about her work, especially if she regularly treats women with the disease.
Topically Relevant Books
Some especially relevant books make appropriate gifts for women doctors. For example, "Fabulous Female Physicians", by Kathy Kacer and Florence Kirsh gives biographical history information for famous women doctors throughout history. These historical women may provide inspiration for your favorite female doctors.
Make-up That Supports a Charity
Donating money to a health awareness cause and make-up combine to make the perfect gift for a woman doctor. MAC Cosmetics has developed a line of cosmetics called "VIVA Glam". All of the proceeds from the line go to projects that support individuals afflicted with AIDS/HIV. The line includes several shades of lipstick, lipgloss and a small make-up bag.
