Top 5 Reasons to Give a Lab Coat as a Gift

When you give a Medelita lab coat as a gift, you're giving more than an object, more than a simple garment - you're giving the gift of pride and helping to transform an often uncomfortable and shapeless uniform into a source of style and sophistication. But when is a good time to give such a gift? In my opinion, there's no such thing as a bad time to give a great gift, but here are a few suggestions.

1. Holidays
Birthdays, Christmas, Hanukkah, Father's Day, Mother's Day, even Valentine's Day! Every gift-giving holiday is a good occasion to give the medical professional in your life a lab coat that they will cherish every time they wear it.

2. White Coat Ceremonies
"For many students, dreams of putting on the white coat begin the day they are accepted into medical school. This coat finalizes our hard-fought journey toward gaining admittance as years of constant, rigorous work have finally paid off; all of the pre-requisites of high school, SATs, college, MCATs, AMCAS, and every other acronym you can think of are behind us; and becoming a doctor seems to be in sight at last," said medical student Timothy Dempsey.

What better way to celebrate such a major accomplishment than with a high-quality student length lab coat like the Elizabeth B. or Fleming, that medical students will feel proud to wear? Medelita has a school discount program. Personalized for each participating educational institution, the Medelita School Discount Program offers students in medical fields an opportunity to save up to 40% on lab coats purchased in bulk for White Coat Ceremonies.

3. Graduation
What often distinguishes a student from a practitioner is the length of the lab coat. After all of that hard work, and the long hours of studying and passing board exams, the short white coat can (finally) be replaced by a long white coat. It's a source of pride and accomplishment, and the occasion deserves much more than a poor quality, ill-fitting unisex tent of white fabric. A Medelita full-length lab coat is the perfect way to say "congratulations."

4. Saying Thank You
Doctors change lives, and oftentimes the people whose lives they have changed search for a way to say thank you. If a medical professional has changed or saved your life, or the life of a loved one, a fruit basket can seem like an insufficient way to express your gratitude. If you're looking for an extra special way to say "thank you", there is no better gift than an embroidered lab coat. Worn an average of 2000 to 3000 hours a year, a Medelita lab coat is a beautiful and lasting reminder each day of how grateful you are for the physician in your life. It means a great deal to everyone here at Medelita when we know we're a part of something so special.

5. You Deserve It
Not all gifts have to be bought for someone else. As a physician, you work long and often stressful days. You grab meals between rounds, and you spend your life rushing from one place to the next. Your commitment to others is astounding and admirable, but you rarely take a moment out of giving to others to simply give something back to yourself.

Medelita has taken a great deal of time and care to ensure that the comfort and wellbeing of our customers always comes first. Every Medelita lab coat and set of scrubs is geared towards making you look and feel your very best. Treat yourself to a lab coat that you will love - you deserve it.


Sometimes giving a lab coat as a gift can a little bit stressful because you have a lot of choices to make - style, size, and embroidery. At Medelita, we're experts at helping people choose the perfect gift. We even offer gift-wrapping option as a finishing touch.
