I’m sure most of you don’t even know when doctor’s day is!

Different countries celebrate it on different days… Well in India, it’s celebrated on 1st July in honour of the legendary physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy.

Most of you may be wondering the importance and significance of Doctor’s Day. Well… until a few years I, myself didn’t know that this day even existed until it came up during a debate in college.

Like me, most of us fail to appreciate our respective doctor’s as we only visit them when we are sick and once cured, they are forgotten, right?

A few years ago, I happened to visit my family doctor inspite of me being perfectly fine. He too was shocked to know that I just came to visit as I hadn’t done it in many years and this took him by surprise.

Well… inspite of knowing about doctor’s day, I have never gone out of my way to gift him and thank him for his medicines and being a father figure to me.

So this year, I have decided to gift him either one of the following… You too could take these ideas if you like if you’re intending on gifting your doctor on his special day.


A doctor is always in need of a pen to write down prescriptions. Very well then, this calls for your first choice – a personalized pen engraved with his name. This would be an ideal gift because it’s personalized, showcases your love and gratitude and would always remind him of you whenever he hold the pen in his hand.


I don’t know if you have noticed, but doctors always like to keep a diary by their side. I too don’t know the reason but I have noticed it. Since diaries are their best friend, you could gift your doc, a personalized diary. By personalized diary, I mean personalize the cover not the entire diary 😀


Doctors are constantly on their toes attending to patients all the time. They too need a break – a coffee or tea break just like we do. So run along and get your doc a personalized mug. By this I mean, it doesn’t need to be a digital caricature of his face but the cup could contain some doodling – a one which he hasn’t seen before.

Well there are many more things we could gift our docs but first make do with these ideas. The fact that you have remembered to wish him/her and get him/her a gift, will be their ultra special moment.

So this doctor’s day, don’t forget to buy your doc a gift!
