(As a parent reading this article, you may find our other health articles related to children very useful, especially these:


Given their specialization with children, pediatrics are usually more at their workstation than on their feet like most other health professionals like doctors and nurses. Their work is more preventative and they deal mostly with diagnosing and administering general care to children, and where a specialist is needed they refer the matter to the specialist.

And because they are usually more in their work station than other health professionals, the best gifts are those that would liven their workspace and add some functionality. And it is with this in mind that we have chosen the 25 gifts in our list, as the best gifts for pediatricians.

About 75% of pediatric doctors are female, according to the American Medical Association, and this explains why most gift items for pediatricians in the market are largely tailored for women. And in our list, some of these items have been listed but we have tried as much as possible to ensure that the majority of our gifts are tailored for both sexes.

All the items are equally as great for a pediatrician who is retiring, but we have also chosen three specific retirement gift items because they mention retirement specifically.

Quick Overview: Gifts for Pediatricians

1. Oxo Brew 8 Coffee Machine.

This coffee machine is the latest in the Oxo coffee maker series. It makes your usual cup of coffee at the best temperature and with great taste. The carafe is made of stainless steel which guarantees to keep the coffee hot for longer.


  • It is easy to use. 
  • It is easy to clean. 
  • The coffee jar handle is comfortable to hold. 
  • It brews coffee quickly. 
  • It does not take up too much space.
  • It can brew up to 8 cups of coffee at a go. 
  • All types of coffee work with it. 
  • The carafe is made of stainless steel.


  • It does not come with a permanent filter. You will need to buy one. 
  • It does not come with a timer. 
  • The water compartment is not detachable. A customer suggested locating the water compartment on the same side as the buttons. 
  • It does not work for single-serving brewing without an additional attachment which is not included as part of the package.

Despite the cons outlined, this product remains a great buy and the reviews from the American drinking coffee community as at the time of writing speaks volumes about the capability of this coffee machine. It would be a great gift for a pediatrician because they can brew all their 8 cups in one go and simply warm up during the day, although the carafe would do a great job of keeping it warm since it is made of stainless steel.

2. Bonavita Coffee Machine.

This is another great coffee machine that you can opt for if you want a slightly cheaper alternative to the Oxo. Just like the Oxo, this cool machine also brews 8 cups of coffee at a go. This brand is certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America which tells you how great it is.


  • It can brew 8 cups of coffee at a go.
  • The carafe is made of stainless steel.
  • It does not take up too much space.


  • You cannot take a cup of coffee while it is still brewing.
  • It takes a bit of time to clean.
  • The basket holder has to be detached and kept separate from the unit.
  • The carafe has to be covered with the lid to pour out coffee without spilling.
  • Some customers have complained that the product did not last as long as they expected it to.

The reviews on this coffee machine have been mixed. Overall, it is still good for brewing a hot cup of coffee and the fact that it makes 8 cups at a go makes it a great option. The downsides about the time it takes to clean it may not make it so great for a pediatrician’s office since they may not have the time. So, while we recommend it for the budget buyer, if you can spare the extra cash difference between this machine and the Oxo, which is not too way off at the time of writing, the Oxo would be a better buy to this one for a pediatrician’s office.

You can add a cool inspirational coffee mug and tumble to complement the coffee machine. Buy them cool inspirational coffee mugs and tumblers that would make that quick cup of coffee a quick cup of inspiration and energy. We’ve put a varied selection for you to make your choice of what message works best for your purposes:

3. Keep the Tiny Humans Alive Coffee Mug.

Any pediatrician would love the message on this mug because it resonates very much with what they do, which is taking care of our littlest humans. The size of the mug is your standard size 11oz.


  • It is easy to clean.
  • It has an inspirational message.
  • It comes in two colors – black and white.


  • It is fragile and should be handled with care.
  • The message is printed only on one side.

The message on this coffee mug is just perfect for a pediatrician and we highly recommend it. There are hardly any cons to coffee mugs with cool inspirational messages.

4. Super Amazing Pediatrician Coffee Mug for Her.

This coffee mug is another inspirational mug and made especially for the female pediatrician because of the pink color. It is also your standard size 11oz. Coffee mug.


  • The message is printed on both sides.
  • It is easy to clean.
  • It is microwave safe.
  • It is dishwasher safe.
  • It has an inspirational message.
  • It is packaged in a gift box.


  • It is designed for women.
  • It is fragile and should be handled with care.

The only downside about this great mug is the fact that they don’t have one for male pediatricians. And this is perhaps because as earlier pointed out, the pediatrics profession is largely dominated by women. The fact that this mug comes with a gift packaging makes it a great choice and highly recommended for your female pediatrician.

5. Personalized Doctor Name Coffee Mug.

The amazing feature of this coffee mug is the fact that you can personalize it to the pediatrician by having their name engraved on it at the point of ordering it. Also cool is the fact that the name is printed on both sides.


  • It is personalized on both sides with the doctor’s name.
  • It is microwave friendly.
  • It is dishwasher friendly.
  • The printing is of good quality.


  • It is fragile.

All customers who have bought this mug as a gift at the time of writing cannot testify enough about how much it was appreciated by the receiver.

This is an 11oz. coffee mug with a high difference. We highly recommend this mug because of the very personal touch the name personalization gives to it, coupled with the fact that a stethoscope is also part of the engraving. And this leaves no doubt that it is a doctor’s cup. And unlike the earlier coffee mug made just for women, this one can be personalized for both male and female pediatricians. All the other amazing cons make this a great buy for a personalized coffee mug for a pediatrician. And this is why this mug would be our number 1 recommendation for a coffee mug for a pediatrician.

6. Best Pediatrician Tumbler with Lid.

This is another cool coffee or beverage drinker gift for a pediatrician with a cool message. Tumblers are known for their insulation in maintaining the temperature of their contents, and this one is no different.


  • It comes with a lid.
  • It is made of stainless steel inside.
  • The outside is cool to the touch even with hot liquid inside.
  • It is easy to clean.
  • It has an inspirational message.


  • It does not have a handle.
  • The outer surface is too smooth.
  • It does not have a straw.

The aesthetics of this tumbler and the message on it makes it a winner. The fact that it does not have a handle however is somewhat of a big deal but sadly there are currently no tumblers with handles that have pediatricians written on them at the time of writing, and that is why we had to settle for this one. While the tumbler with a handle would be preferable, the specific mention of the profession on this one makes it a better choice.

7. Thank You For Being Awesome Tumbler with Lid

The message on this tumbler is another winner. Another feature that makes it different from the earlier tumbler is the shape it comes in, as well as its capacity which is about 4oz. more than the earlier tumbler. It also has more of a variety by allowing you to choose from 6 colors.


  • It is bigger.
  • It comes in 4 colors.
  • The inside is made of stainless steel.
  • It has an inspirational message.
  • It is cool to the touch on the outside.
  • It is easy to clean.
  • It comes with a lid.
  • It is durable.


  • It is not dishwasher friendly.
  • It does not come with a straw. 
  • It does not come with a handle.

This is a great mug and with the extra size, it makes it a cool gift. The printing on it is classy and etched on the tumbler meaning it won’t come off easily. It also looks very sleek and stylish. Our comments about the handle on the earlier tumbler also apply to this tumbler. The only difference is that unlike the earlier tumbler, this one is not written specifically for a pediatrician and can be given to anyone. And so if you decide the handle is a reason not to choose it because there is no profession-specific message that would be understandable, although the sleek and amazing finish compensates for it.

You can also buy them some functional items that aid their work. And here are a few top recommendations:

8. Beautiful Leather Stethoscope Carry Case.

This is a chic and classy functional carry case made from genuine leather. It is designed specifically for doctors to carry their stethoscope and other small accompaniments when making their rounds.


  • It is lightweight and easy to carry.
  • It has protective inner linings and casing for medical equipment.
  • It is packaged in a gift wrapping.
  • It comes with a 2-year warranty.
  • The magnetic clasp stays on.
  • The quality is great.
  • It can easily fit into any bag.
  • It does not smell.


  • All the doctors and nurses who have bought this item have only great things to say about it. The only issue that few had with it was the size, which was small for them.

The size issue with this carry case is with very few customers and does not at all reduce the awesomeness of this carry case for any medical practitioner and specifically your pediatrician. The product is praised for its genuine quality and classy feel and look and the fact that it offers the safest and best protection for the stethoscope especially.

9. Knight Pen Holder.

This is a regal pen holder that makes a table look all sorts of royal. It would make your pediatrician’s table look cool, and serve the functional purpose of making the pen easily reachable when they have their office appointments. Another great feature of this is that it does not take up space.


  • It is made of quality wood.
  • It does not take up space.
  • It holds the pen securely.
  • It is regal and stylish.
  • It comes with a metal pen.
  • It is sturdy.
  • It can be used to hold other small items like a letter opener.
  • It is also a good table decor.


  • It does not include base glue for your table. And this makes it great because it means you can move it from one table to another without damaging the tabletops.
  • Some customers have complained that it is a little wobbly.

Notwithstanding the cons, this remains a great buy both for aesthetics and the purpose it serves. To cure the wobbling if it does wobble, you can use a wood friendly glue to glue on the base to the table. The customers who have complained about it being wobbly were just about two at the time of writing, while the rest of the customers have only good things to say about it. So overall, we highly recommend it.

10. Ergonomic Under Desk Footrest.

This ergonomic gift item would make the pediatrician enjoy their office appointments very much, if not too much. It comes with memory foam and is just the perfect size of solid form to the foam to support the foot. And even cooler is the fact that the producer has given the product a lifetime warranty.


  • It is ergonomic.
  • It comes with a lifetime warranty.
  • It is the right amount of soft.
  • It provides good foot support.
  • It helps with balancing a sitting posture.
  • It is washable.
  • The material does not shrink after washing.
  • It is elevated.
  • It can be used as a neck rest and a knee rest.
  • It is very comfortable.


  • One customer at the time of writing said it got squishy and flat after they used it for some time.

The amazing features that this product comes with makes it a highly recommended must-have gift item for every pediatrician. And this is because they sit for long hours at a desk than most other health professionals, and having something soft and ergonomic that can provide support on the foot is a thoughtful way to say thank you to your pediatrician. The positive reviews on this product are substantial and the price is a killer for all the features it comes with.

11. Cellphone Stand.

This is another functional gift item that supports 4-8 inch phones. It allows the pediatrician to keep the phone at a safe yet reachable distance while they carry out their consultations. It also comes with a large hole at the back that allows for charging the phone while it is mounted. And it does not take up too much space, which makes it perfect.


  • It does not take up too much space.
  • It is sturdy.
  • It is compatible with all phone types.
  • It can support all 4-8 inch devices.


  • One customer at the time of writing complained that the charging hole is not very useful for its purpose.

This product is made of quality metal and is so strong it supports any 4-8 inch device. And it comes at a great price. Despite the one review about the charging hole, all other customers who have used the product as at the time of writing have only said good things about it, and are particularly impressed that for what it does the price is great.

You can buy them nice inspirational wall art and bespoke decorations to liven up their work station:

12. Doctor’s Table Clock.

This unique and bespoke table clock is specially made for doctors and comes with a miniature stethoscope and the symbol for doctors. All doctors who receive this clock love it dearly and value it as a gift item of pride.


  • It is beautiful and classy.
  • It is specifically for doctors.
  • It is made of quality material.
  • It uses normal batteries.
  • It does not take up too much space.


  • It is small.
  • It is not engraved but you can engrave it separately with an engraver.
  • It does not come with batteries. You will need to purchase them separately.
  • It does not come with gift packaging.

You can’t go wrong with this clock. Its small size is in fact what makes it a very attractive gift and decor for the pediatrician’s table. The other cons do not detract from its value. The aesthetics and the fact that it is made specifically for the doctor make this item a favorite decor for all doctors and that is why we highly recommend it.

13. Pediatrician Vintage Sculpture.

This is another cool table decor that pediatricians love and especially because the sculpture is one of a pediatrician treating a child. It is also handmade from quality materials.


  • It is durable.
  • It is made of quality materials.
  • It doesn’t take up space.
  • It is lightweight.


  • It may be small on a really big table.

The chances of your pediatrician’s table being really big are slim. This stature is another winner for a pediatrician because it resonates so much with what they do. Every pediatrician that has received this loved it, and we are sure yours will love it too.

14. Stethoscope Wall Art.

Nothing like cool wall art to liven a room. And the picture on this wall art is pretty amazing for a pediatrician because it is a picture of a stethoscope. Giving your pediatrician this wall art as a gift would endear him/her to you. And it comes in cool 3 piece format which makes for great layering on the wall.


  • It is high end and high-quality art.
  • It is classy and sophisticated.
  • It comes in a 3-piece.


  • It is pricey but very worth it.

This wall art just oozes class, coolness, and awesomeness. The coloring, the background, the stethoscope, everything is just so perfect. The price is well worth it, even if it is on the high side. It is a great gift for any pediatrician and an even nicer retirement parting gift.

15. Stethoscope Wall Art with Inspirational Message.

This wall art is a twist to the earlier wall art. The twist is that it comes with a nice message with the stethoscope.


  • It is easy to hang.
  • The artwork is sophisticated.
  • It has a beautiful message.
  • It is a perfect size.


  • It is not colorful but this may be perfect for some art lovers that love grayscale.

While we love the first wall art because it is more colorful than this one, we love this one because it comes with an inspirational message. It is difficult to choose between this wall art and the first one and that is why we highly recommend both of them.

16. Pediatrician with Baby Wall Art.

This one is a wall art specifically for a female pediatrician because the drawing on it is that of a female pediatrician and a child. The color scale though seems a paradox because it has no color but grayscale always goes well with any wall.


  • It is beautiful.
  • It is a perfect size.
  • It is warm.


  • It is not colorful.
  • It is pricey.
  • It is not suited for male pediatricians.

This is great wall art for a female pediatrician’s office. The only downside to it is the absence of color but otherwise a great art piece for her office. We do think though that given the absence of color and how simple it looks, it is a bit pricey.

17. Pediatrician Illustration Wall Art.

This one is more an illustrative piece to color the female pediatrician’s office and to intrigue her littlest patients. Just like the immediate product that follows this item, it is made for a female pediatrician which is a downside.


  • It is colorful.
  • It is very illustrative.
  • The size is perfect for its purpose.
  • It is easy to hang.


  • It is made only for female pediatricians.
  • It is a little pricey.

The only issue we have with this pretty wall art is the fact that it does not have a replica for the male pediatrician. This is perhaps reasonable given that only 25% of pediatricians are male. Aside from this, we also highly recommend this wall art because it is colorful and would fascinate the child at the same time.

18. Inspirational Wall Plaque.

This plaque is low-key and a very good option for opting for not so pricey wall art. It comes with an inspirational message and has a stethoscope engraved as well, leaving no doubt that it’s for a doctor. It is engraved on good wood and can be placed on a tabletop.


  • It is easy to hang or mount.
  • It comes with a beautiful message.
  • It is made of good wood.


  • The size is small.

This is great wall art. The only downside is its size but every doctor that has received it adores it. We recommend it especially if you are on a budget and unable to afford the pricey ones suggested above.

19. Pediatrician Themed Tissue Box Holder.

Every tissue paper box tends to move around when you try to pull out tissue paper, and this can be distracting. Well not anymore for your pediatrician, with this cool and sturdy holder. It holds the box and the tissue paper in place.


  • It is suitable for any standard size rectangular shaped tissue box.
  • It is sturdy.
  • It is lightweight yet functional.
  • It is made of metal.


  • It does not come with a tissue paper box.
  • It comes in only one color.
  • The metal is bendable so you need to handle it with some care.
  • One customer found the depiction of the doctor smoking tobacco while listening to the client not appropriate and hoped a depiction of note-taking would have been more fitting.

The beauty of this item lies in the fact that it’s a nice decor and serves a very functional purpose. We highly recommend it.

You can buy them other personalized and inspirational small items:

20. Pediatrician Appreciation KeyChain.

This keychain comes with an inspirational message that would warm the heart of any pediatrician.


  • It comes with a thank you pendant attached.
  • It is made of quality stainless steel.
  • It comes with a nice plush velvet packaging.


  • It is small although this is to be expected from keychains.

This is a nice low-key appreciation gift. We love the fact that it comes with a thank you pendant attached to it, which conveys the giver’s gratitude.

21. Embroidered Pediatrician Bracelet.

This is another nice piece of jewelry, but specifically for a female pediatrician. It is made of nice embroidered material with a pediatrician engraved metal attached to the front.


  • It is skin-friendly.
  • It is stylish and unique.
  • It comes with gift box packaging.
  • It has a 30-day warranty.


  • It may not fit someone with a big wrist.
  • It is made for female pediatricians only.

Aside from the fact that it may not be for a lady with slightly bigger wrists, this is a cool fashion accessory for a female pediatrician to have.

22. Swarovski Stethoscope Necklace.

Swarovski is reputed for their quality yet minimalist jewelry and this piece does not disappoint in delivering on that promise. It comes with an attached birthstone and is a pretty piece for a female pediatrician.


  • It is skin-friendly.
  • It wears well.
  • It is made of quality materials.
  • It is reasonably priced.


  • It may be small for someone with a slight build.

The minimalist appearance of this piece makes it perfect for everyday wear by the female pediatrician and that is what makes it so appealing and attractive as a gift. We will recommend giving it to your female pediatrician as a gift. Every single medical professional who has received this as a gift has nothing but amazing reviews for it.

For the retiring pediatrician, in addition to any of the items in the list above, you can also buy personalized retirement items.

23. Classy Retirement Mug.

This is not your normal-sized coffee mug but a whopping 20oz. size mug. The finishing on the mug and the message is classy and nice, and that is why we dubbed it the Classy Retirement Mug. The color scheme though suggests that it is more of a female’s cup.


  • It is big.
  • It is microwave friendly.
  • It is dishwasher friendly although hand wash is highly recommended by the manufacturer.
  • It is beautiful.
  • It comes with a beautiful message.


  • The size may be too big for a moderate coffee drinker.

The size of this mug makes it perfect for a coffee drinker who loves to take a big cup of coffee in one go. The material is of good quality and overall has a great finish. It is a cool retirement gift.

24. Retirement is When You Stop Working Coffee Mug.

This cool retirement mug is unisex and can be gifted to a male or female retiree.


  • It comes with a beautiful message.
  • It is microwave friendly.
  • It is dishwasher friendly.


  • It is fragile and should be handled with care.

Another great coffee mug and perfect as a retirement gift.

25. Retirement tumbler with lid.

This final item on our list is great because of the nice message on it as well as the nice finishing of the tumbler.


  • It retains the temperature of contents inside.
  • It is cool to the touch on the outside.
  • The message is laser engraved.


  • It does not have a handle.
  • It does not come with a straw.

This cool tumbler comes with insulated stainless steel inside that retains the temperature of the contents inside. The finishing is sleek and nice and makes for a great present. The only downside is the fact that it does not have a handle which is not ideal given that it is made for older age retirees. It does mean they need to hold it extra carefully and given the smooth finish of the exterior of the cup, this can also make it a challenge.


  • What is a good Christmas gift for a pediatrician?

Any of the items on this list will make for a good pediatrician gift for Christmas.

  • What are creative gift ideas for a pediatrician?

All the gift items in this list are creative gifts but if you wanted to pick one, we would go with the Stethoscope Wall Art because it is top of the range when it comes to an artsy and creative pediatrician gift.

  • Do you have any gift ideas for a pediatrician retiring?

Yes, indeed we do. We have selected three specific retirement gift items but giving a retiring pediatrician any of the other items also makes for a good retirement gift for your pediatrician.
