Ahh, graduation. After years of hard work, your favorite medical student is becoming a DO. How do you show your appreciation of their remarkable achievements?

These six creative, useful and extra cute gifts are bound to help send your new grad on a path to residency success.

1. The Ostrich Pillow

The Ostrich Pillow will help new residents catch power naps anywhere they need to by creating their very own cocoon. The pillow is filled with microbeads for extra comfort and has a small opening on the front side for easy breathing.

2. Scrubs

Looking toward the summer months, Januu recently introduced a pop of color and style to its ultra-fashionable uniform lineup. The clothing line strives to provide tailored designs made to flatter, according to its mission statement.

3. Stethoscope

With infinite color combinations and finishes, a classic Littmann stethoscope with a bell and diaphragm will be most appreciated by a new grad. Make it extra personal by getting it engraved.

4. Compression socks

When we said “extra cute,” we weren’t kidding. These graduated compression socks will help keep a little kick in the step of that busy resident. The socks increase blood flow in the legs to support critical muscles and tendons. Bonus: A proprietary blend of materials wick away moisture.

5. Meal delivery service

A healthy diet will ensure plenty of energy for residency. Give the gift of nutrition with a meal-kit delivery service such as Hello Fresh, Plated, or Blue Apron.

6. Smart watch

A smart watch will help your new DO stay connected and check notifications during residency without having to pull out their phone.

7. Home store gift card

Is your new grad moving out of state to complete residency? A gift card from a home store like Bed Bath & Beyond, Lowes, or Target will ensure they can get the perfect home essentials for their new place.
