If you haven’t put any thought to your holiday wish list, now is the time to do so. A locum holiday gift guide or gift guides for medical professionals usually entail things they may need, such as lab coats and briefcases. Or quirky and funny gifts such as sassy mugs or anatomically correct shower curtains. Don’t settle for such gifts this year. You probably have enough nice pens as it is. Create a locum holiday gift guide that is full of things that’ll make this coming year easier and a bit more bearable. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Locum Holiday Gift Guide
Make mornings bearable and do your liver a favor and add coffee to your locum holiday gift guide or wish list as the gift that keeps on giving. For the serious coffee lovers, the AeroPress provides you with some quality espresso-like coffee with just a single press. Ridiculously simple, easy, and compact, the AeroPress is the obvious choice for any coffee-loving locum tenens.
Whether you’re a lover of K-cups or a lover of things that require no effort whatsoever, the AnyCafé is for you. The AnyCafé is a rechargeable, dishwasher-friendly, coffee thermos that brews your k-cup in the thermos. Repeat: a thermos that brews your k-cup in the actual thermos itself. I’ll give you a minute to process that.
Wine can be just as or more important than any old cup of coffee — even if it was brewed in its own thermos. By adding a wine club to your wish list you’ll avoid those unthinkable moments of opening the fridge after a long hard day at work to find there is no wine in there. I’m no expert, but these people are, so take it from them and choose the wine club that’ll suit all your needs. Without lifting a finger, you can reap all the benefits that a glass of wine has to offer. If wine isn’t exactly your thing, no worries, there’s a club for everyone. Just pick your poison: vodka, whiskey, or gin?
Keep up with the times, practice what you preach, and add wearable tech to your wish list this year! Depending on your field of expertise, you can bet there’s a bit of technology out there for you. Take a cue from the surgeons that have integrated the use of Google Glass into the OR. But if this is your first introduction to wearable technology, there’s no need to be as fancy and high-tech as Google Glass. Opt for the most common wearables such as smartwatches and activity trackers.
If you’re the type of locum tenen that is leading the jet-set lifestyle, then you’re going to need the tools of the trade. Fit for 007 himself, the Bluesmart carry-on has been dubbed “the iPhone of luggage”. With the ability to charge your electronics, keep you within the weight limit thanks to the built-in scale, and remotely lock it and locate it from anywhere in the world right from your mobile device, you’ll find yourself eager to start a new assignment that’ll head you to the airport.
For the locum tenen that has everything, time makes the best gift of all. Kick back and relax while someone else does the cooking, cleaning, and/or yard work for you. Time is precious, so why not add one of these services on your wish list this year?
