It can be a real challenge to buy the boss a birthday present -- especially if your boss is a doctor. With an average yearly salary of $100,000 to $200,000 or more, according to the Payscale website, most doctors are well-off enough to purchase whatever they want. So when it comes to finding a birthday gift for the boss, it's more the thought that counts.
Personalized Wine Bottle Prescription for Stress Relief
If you're looking for a unique gift to give your doctor boss that won't break the bank, give her a personalized bottle of wine with a custom prescription for stress relief. Buy an inexpensive bottle of wine and remove the label. Then create a custom label that looks like the doctor's prescription pad and write a prescription for the doctor to take a dose of wine to combat stress, as needed.
Dress up a small stuffed bear with a toy stethoscope for a birthday present for your doctor. Find a specialty store that will allow you to build a bear with a theme. Look for a doctor's white lab coat or a set of surgery scrubs. Dress your bear in the doctor outfit and don't forget to have the doctor's name embroidered on the bear's shirt or jacket.
A good caricature is funny, yet tasteful. Submit a photo to a caricature artist and have your boss drawn in a quirky likeness. Or, if you're artistically inclined, you can use a step-by-step tutorial to turn a photo into a caricature. Frame your caricature as a special presentation for the doctor for his birthday.
If you would like to make a kind gesture on behalf of your doctor boss, make a charitable donation in the doctor's name for her birthday. Locate your doctor's favorite charity or make a donation to a charity that is related to the doctor's work. For an oncologist, you might donate to the American Cancer Society or for an obstetrician gift, you can donate to the local children's shelter.
