    7 Weird Gifts Every Pharmacist Wants

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



    3. A Trip

    Pharmacy is an ancient and storied tradition, and what better way to experience that tradition than with a little art.

    You don’t have to look too hard to find pharmacists in art. Take The Marshall Apothecary from the "Great Moments in Pharmacy" collection located at the APhA headquarters, for instance. These paintings celebrate the history and culture of the pharmacy, and provide a fun way to look at how pharmacists have been helping people for thousands of years.

    And if you’re wondering why someone might appreciate the gift of a trip to the local art museum or a flight to go see art somewhere else, consider the great impact this could have on someone. This pharmacy student, for instance, went to study art in France in a 6-week program. She found that art helped her appreciate her pharmacy work in a new way, and gave her tools to think about the way she approached problems.

    If that’s not a good enough, you might also consider that a 6-week trip means that you don’t have to deal with your annoying supervisor for six weeks, and you’ll have earned at least a year of good grace. Can you really put a price tag on that?
