If you clicked on this article, you’re probably scratching your head to find a pharmacy-themed or pharmacist gift that’s tasteful (there are so many tacky gifts out there!), affordable, and practical. To help you out, we’ve come up with a list of pharmacist gift ideas that are accompanied by a long list of positive reviews. Just like nurses, doctors, and teachers, pharmacists are essential workers who we’ve been depending on this year, especially. Who’s there when you have 5,000 questions about your antibiotics? The pharmacist. Who’s calling your GP non-stop to make sure they fill your dang meds? Your pharmacist. Who also rings you up for that sneak Essie nail polish purchase you threw in your cart while waiting for your birth control pills to be filled (and thereby avoiding the long line at the normal register)? Your pharmacist, aka the badass in charge at the drug store.

Here are 31 pharmacist-approved gift ideas each categorized by its individuality, usability/practicality, and tastefulness to show your appreciation.
