Nook: Gifts for Medical Professionals, Pill Pushers and Hypochondriacs


Gifts for Medical Professionals, Pill Pushers and Hypochondriacs

Above: The Hypochondriac's Pocket Guide to Horrible Diseases You Probably Already Have is a satiric guide about horrible, but very rare, diseases.

Our Rx for hard-to-shop-for people continues with these ideas for the medically-oriented friends and family in your life.

We rounded up all kinds of gifts (well, stocking-stuffers) to suit all types. Some are useful (a special cup and dish as a reminder to take your medicine, an eye chart to know it's time for bifocals), sweet (cute gel packs for bruises, sock monkey blankie), gross (scabby bandages), helpful (first aid kit, cozy hot water bottle) or very, very concerned (a Yes, You're Probably Dying wheel -- because laughter has medical value too.) Best of all, each of our finds is under $100.
