Back in December 2016, we released an episode for our first ever Holiday Gift Guide. This has become one of our more popular posts, and we soon realized that having gift ideas for EM docs (or any physician for that matter) can be a valuable resource for many people.
In light of this, we have decided to make a perpetually updated list of gift ideas. As any of the EMoverEasy crew hear/find/create new gift ideas, we will update it here. Please feel free to contact us if you have any great ideas that you think would fit as well!
*we have no affiliation with any of these products or ideas, and are not receiving any compensation to list them here. Basically, this is all cool crap that the three of us like.
