They’ve got two options to choose from—tie-back closure and tubular headband.

4. Eco-Insulated Tumbler

Everyone loves a cup of beverage in the morning or whenever they need something to cool off. 

Healthcare professionals aren’t exempted so getting eco-insulated tumblers for them sounds good.

This reusable drinkware is durable and scratch-resistant meaning it will serve your workers for a long time.

Plus, they’ll always think of you when they use it.  

5. Naro Bento Lunch Box

A Naro Bento Lunch Box is one of the best gifts to give your employees that they can use during their break time.

What’s more, the lunch box is made from food-grade materials and is BPA-free.

Additionally, anyone getting this gift will be able to use and enjoy it for years to come. 

6. Self-care Kit

A take-care package is another unique gift you can give hardworking professionals who work for you.  

This gift box comes with a lavender plant they can start growing for its calming qualities, an hourglass to time their meditation, and a relaxing essential oil you can use as a lotion. 

Aside from the fact that it’s an ongoing trend, self-care kits let your employees know that you’re very concerned about their well-being.

7. Copper Vacuum Bottle

A vacuum bottle is a great gift that can be used anywhere. 

It helps keep water clean and odorless with its built-in purification system. It comes with a safe UV bulb that sterilizes your water and displays the results on the cover.

It also has two bags in one for versatility. 

9. Wireless Power Bank with UV Sanitizer

Power banks help ensure our devices remain connected at all times. 

But this particular power bank cranks up the notch a little bit by tripling as a regular power bank, wireless charging pad, and portable sanitizer.

It can sanitize just about anything that fits inside it such as keys or smartphones, more like a digital hand sanitizer. 

It’s the ideal thank-you gift your healthcare workers can use at work, during vacation, or when they’re traveling. 

There’s no telling when one will be without an outlet or phone charger, so having this wireless power bank will be useful

10. Massage Roller Ball

A handheld massage roller ball is a perfect item you can give medical professionals. 

This thoughtful gift is a good way to tell them they mean a lot to you

Healthcare workers are always working long hours—moving from one place to another and as a result, they’re usually stressed out. 

By getting them this gift, they can quickly recover from the day’s stress

All they have to do is to roll the massage over the sore muscles for quick relief.  

If they don’t have time for a shiatsu massage, the massage ball that doubles as a foot massager will do.

11. Fitness Yoga Mat

The cobra and fitness yoga mat allows your workers to work out or practice yoga on a safe cushioned surface. 

As you can see in the image above, it comes with a pouch that makes transporting it easy.
