    7 Weird Gifts Every Pharmacist Wants

    Don’t know what to get your coworkers? Relax, we’ve got you covered.



    1. Avoiding Awkward Conversations

    Picture this: You’re away on vacation or at a conference. You’re staying in a nice hotel, and decide to pop down to the lobby for brunch.

    You sit down with your food and begin to eat, and notice that the person sitting next to you is opening up a container with some pills. You see him drop some on the table, and think you can just make out a couple of the drugs. He palms what looks like a statin … and then reaches for a very large glass of grapefruit juice at his table. Terrible mistake.

    “Didn’t his doctor or pharmacist warn him?” you think. But he’s about to down the glass. Do you say something? You don’t know this guy. Do you think he’ll believe that you’re a pharmacist? How will he know you’re not just some creep who hates grapefruit juice?

    Cue the jewelry. Something like these cufflinks, or maybe something like a charm bracelet, can be a great way to advertise that you know what you or your other pharmacy colleagues know what you’re talking about. This holiday season, consider giving the gift of fewer awkward social interactions at brunch, and your friends will thank you.
