Anesthesiologists Have to Be Hyperfocused All Day Long — Help Them Unwind At Home With Luxury Gifts They Deserve

Did you know that anesthesiology is one of the most stressful practices in the medical field?

That’s because anesthesiologists must deal with:

  • A patient’s life being in their hands — This is a big one! Anesthesiologists administer powerful drugs that can kill a patient if not monitored and titrated correctly. 
  • Working long hours and being on-call — This is a stressor on the mind and body.
  • Dealing with patients with more comorbidities — Today’s aging population means that patients are older and we have to be even more careful sedating them.
  • The opioid crisis affecting how they care for patients — In an attempt to minimize the need for opioids, we try to be creative by giving blocks and other procedures to minimize pain.
  • And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. While anesthesiology is a rewarding job, it has plenty of stressors. Losing focus for even a moment can be the difference between life and death.

    Because of this, physician anesthesiologists need all the help they can get relaxing and unwinding when they get home. Leaving the cares of the day behind will give them the strength they need to get up the next day and do it all over again.

    Check out this list of luxury anesthesiologist gifts to help them do just that.

    #1: Aroma-sthesia’s® Propofol Candle to Help Them Relax After a Day in the OR

    I had a great time designing this candle line based on the drugs I use in my practice every day. The Aroma-sthesia’® Propofol Candle is the OG of the family.

    No, it doesn’t actually contain propofol. But it will make you feel calm and carefree!

    This candle has a delicate floral aroma of red roses with a hint of tart currants and is designed to help you relax, unwind, and take a much-needed mental vacation.

    We say the propofol candle is best for people who have a high-stakes job or work long hours, so what better gift could you get for your favorite anesthesiologist?

    #2: Fashionable Surgical Caps Featuring Some of Today’s Biggest Icons

    As patients are drifting into unconsciousness in a blissful haze of sedatives, the face of their anesthesiologist may be the last thing they see before they close their eyes.

    So why not make sure they look fabulous and fashionable in a custom surgical cap?

    I designed these cute caps to honor two American icons. They are handmade in the USA, and a portion of the proceeds from sales of all of my items are donated to The Family Place.

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    What better way to show your feminist pride than by wearing a cap honoring late Supreme Court Justice — and hero to many —  Ruth Bader Ginsburg?

    As only the second woman to ascend to the U.S. Supreme Court, she used her voice to speak up for women, minorities, and the LGBTQ+ community. She became a pop-culture sensation and even earned the nickname “Notorious RBG.”

    Small but mighty, she was a trailblazer on the Supreme Court for nearly 30 years. This cap shows her in her trademark horn-rimmed glasses and dissent collar

    Dr. Anthony Fauci

    Unless you have been living under a rock for the past couple of years, you know Dr. Anthony Fauci! This septuagenarian immunologist found himself the unlikely hero of the pandemic and was even dubbed America’s Coronavirus Crush by The Atlantic.

    Dr. Fauci is a strong figure who put us all at ease with his wisdom and sense of calm, so he’s a perfect figure for an anesthesiologist to wear on a cap.

    These scrub hats show Dr. Fauci presiding over us all in his signature lab coat.

    #3: A Needle-Free, Pain-Free Skincare Delivery Device 

    The long hours and extreme stress of an anesthesiologist’s job can take a toll on the skin. Just because we wear masks in the OR doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be in tip-top shape underneath!

    I work with needles every day, but I love the Droplette device because it gives me healthy and glowing skin without having to put any needles in my face.

    While most topical creams or serums sit on top of your skin and never fully absorb, the Droplette infuses the skin with a water-based mist of dermatologist-developed formulations. This hydrates the skin and targets any problem areas.

    With regimens such as …

    • Radiant Detox
    • Ultra Hydrate; and
    • Wrinkle Repair

    … the anesthesiologist in your life is sure to find a formula they will love.

    #4: Healthy, Fresh Meals at Their Fingertips

    I can’t tell you how often I’ve faced a long day at the hospital and didn’t have time to pack snacks or meals to keep me going.

    It can be tempting to quickly grab some junk from the vending machine or heavy food from the cafeteria in a pinch. But I know that will leave me feeling worse in the long run!

    That’s why I was thrilled to discover Gardencup. It truly is clean eating made easy. Gardencup creates salads in flavors like:

    • Southwest
    • Cobb
    • Applegreen; and
    • Mediterranean

    They are all-natural, plant-packed, and nutrient-dense. Plus, they have a seven-day shelf life and are delivered right to your door.

    Now keeping your favorite anesthesiologist fueled for the day is easy with Gardencup. They can just grab the cup of their choice from the fridge each morning and go! Plus, their reusable containers are environmentally friendly.

    #5: A Heavy-Duty Salve to Save Their Skin

    Constantly wearing gloves can leave anesthesiologists’ hands chafed and dry.

    There’s a reason Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve is known as the GOAT in operating rooms across the world. 

    This paraben-free formula is thick, rich, and deeply hydrating. Formulated with … 

    • Shea butter
    • Avocado butter; and
    • Sesame seed oil

    … the unique formula absorbs water from the air and creates a glove-like barrier on parched skin.

    The anesthesiologist in your life will thank you for saving their skin if you give them this gift.

    #6: Hydration and Style All in One

    As anesthesiologists, we advise our patients to drink lots of water after being sedated. But sometimes we don’t follow that advice ourselves during our regular workday!

    S’well offers stylish and eco-friendly reusable food and drink containers. I especially love their insulated water bottlesthese things are so cute that it’s easy to stay hydrated when I look extra Insta-worthy while drinking out of them

    You can even get a bottle personalized for your favorite anesthesiologist. And don’t forget the metal straws. They make water extra cold and tasty while saving sea creatures at the same time. That’s a win-win!

    #7: The Ultimate Gift of a Calmer Mind

    What if you could give the gift of Calm? Now you can with the number one app for meditation and sleep.

    When someone opens the Calm app, they are asked if they want to:

    • Reduce anxiety
    • Develop gratitude
    • Increase happiness
    • Improve performance
    • Build self-esteem
    • Reduce stress; or
    • Get better sleep

    Then recommendations of sounds, stories, audio classes, and guided meditations are made based on those goals.

    Calm is an excellent platform for people who are new to meditation, as it teaches about mindfulness and accessible practices.

    I already talked about how stressful an anesthesiologist’s job is. Wouldn’t this type of doctor love a premium one-year gift card to let Calm help them improve their health and happiness?
