Gifts for the Medically Conscious!

My friend Alice-Jane and I were talking the other day and realized we both planned on making gift-guides for blog posts, so we teamed up! We’re alternating days from now on, excepting Sunday. I’m really happy with what we’ve come up with, and you should totally hop on over to her blog to see what she’s up to. We’ve both chosen topics for each other that fit out personalities well. Hope you enjoy!

I’ve chosen these gifts for people like Alice and myself, for people who like watching medical shows and science class! You don’t have to be an aspiring doctor to find these things awesome.

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

TFiOS recently won an award from TIME for ‘Best Fiction book of the year’, and it is certainly well deserved. It was an amazing book, and I have never read anything that portrays cancer as lovingly and realisticly as this. Everyone must read this at least once, and it’s perfect for any teen in your life.

2. Candy Striper Dress

I love being a candy striper, and the only thing I regret about it is that we don’t get to wear cute uniforms like these anymore! This one is salmon pink instead of the usual candy cane stripes, but it’s still very adorable and a steal for something vintage like this!

3. Lung iPhone Case

This anatomically correct lung iPhone case rocks my socks.  It’s a great and chic way to display your love for being medically savvy! The clear cut black and white lines are very aesthetically pleasing, too.

4. Plush Common Cold

This is one of the best gag (or real) gifts to give to anyone medically savvy! Imagine being able to say “I gave you a cold for Christmas!” or, depending on what bacteria you give them, “I gave you mono/anthrax/chicken pox for Christmas!”

5. Anatomy Poster

This poster is great. It’s subtle, which is nice. The colors are muted and the canvas background is better than anything paper ever could be. Vintage rocks.

6. Anatomical Heart Necklace

This has to be my favorite thing on the list. I have always wanted something like this, something that actually looks like a heart.

Well, there you have it, folks! 🙂 Hope you enjoyed it! Alice’s first post is here. Keep your eyes peeled for more to come!
