  • Book icon.
    Books, Movies, Music

    After a hectic day in health care, your loved one will appreciate a chance to unwind with a good book, a movie or favorite music. Shop locally or online to find the newest popular titles – or find a favorite classic that’s sure to be enjoyed. (Get one for yourself and tag it “from Santa.”)

  • Stethoscope icon.
    New Stethoscope – Personalize It!

    You can’t go wrong with a 3M™ Littmann® Cardiology IV™ or 3M™ Littmann® Classic III™ Stethoscope in one of our new mirror or champagne chestpiece finishes. Just add some love and tie the bow. Add a personal touch and have it engraved, too. Or select a stethoscope ID tag to help express their personal style.

  • Espresso Machine
    Espresso Machine

    Coffee is a clinician’s best friend. An espresso machine gives them a boost at home or at the office when they need it most. Make it a manual for a whole latte love.

  • Personal fitness device icon.
    Fitness Wearables

    Help your special healthcare professional stay healthy with a user-friendly fitness device that tracks activity, monitors heart rate, receives email, plays music, and more. The options are endless.

  • Shoe icon.
    Comfortable Work Shoes

    Being on your feet all day is easier when you have comfortable and supportive shoes that look fashionable, too. Whether your special person favors clogs, trainers or slip-ons, shop for the shoe that offers the most comfort and best support for their busy feet.

  • Person asleep in a bed icon.
    Bedtime Comfort

    After a long day’s work, it’s time to quiet the mind and relax into a good night’s sleep. Try a sound machine with soothing sounds of nature or white noise, comfy pajamas, socks for cold feet, or a sleep mask. (Get some for yourself, too.)

  • Stopwatch icon.
    Time Savers

    Caring for others all day can be exhausting and the last thing to get done is housework. Give your favorite person a gift card or gift certificate for professional house cleaning, yard work, babysitting or auto maintenance.

  • Stack of stones icon.

    It’s not only housework that gets left behind when trying to manage a hectic schedule. Give a gift card or gift certificate for a day at the spa, a facial, a manicure and pedicure, or a relaxing and rejuvenating massage. (Don’t forget to pamper yourself, too!)

  • Scrubs icon.
    Coats and Scrubs for the Fashionable Professional

    Whether your favorite professional wears a lab coat, smock or scrubs, there are countless ways to dress fashionably in a healthcare setting.
