Even though there is a variety of different careers young people nowadays can choose from, which often makes such decision a difficult and complicated process, those who end up choosing any career in the medical field deserve a special recognition. Not only are they choosing some of the most demanding studies and are willing to commit to giving up a lot of their free time and social life during their university years, but they are also choosing a profession that requires a lot of responsibility, endurance and sacrifice.
You’ve probably been in a situation where you had to get some sort of an X-ray scan, even if it was as simple as a dental X-ray for your dentist to be able to see what is happening inside your teeth. That’s exactly what radiography is for, providing clear and certain insights into what is happening inside the body which gives doctors the necessary information they need in order to give the right diagnosis.
If you happen to know a radiography student who works hard to become a successful medical worker and you want to surprise them with a little gift to show your appreciation, you’re in the right place! Here’s a list of best gift ideas for radiography students:
- Large Abstract Skull Canvas Art Wall DécorMedical students are usually obsessed with their future career in the best possible way! They are proud of what they are becoming while working hard to pursue it. That’s why they will not skip a chance to proudly mention or show what they’re studying and in which direction they’re heading. What’s a better way to express it than to have a huge abstract skull canvas as an art wall decor in their home, so that everyone who comes in sees what they’re passionate about. Not only will this proudly express the commitment to their future career, but will motivate them to study whenever they pass by the canvas.
- Anatomic Brain Specimen CoastersRadiographers can do scans for different parts of the body, but if the radiography student you want to surprise with a gift happens to be into neuro-radiography that focuses on the imaging of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system, this set of 10 anatomic brain specimen coasters will be such a cool gift! They will adore it and use it in their everyday life, especially when drinking coffee or tea while studying. Each coaster is made of glass, has 4 rubber feet to stop it from sliding, and each one features a slice of the brain so when it is stacked together, it completes a full brain picture!
- Radiology Lined NotebookRadiography students have to write down a lot of new information they hear and learn every day, and even though they probably already own plenty of different notebooks, there can never be enough of them due to the amount of information they have to memorize, so they will always benefit from one more of those. When buying a gift for a young individual who is still studying, it’s always a good idea to add some humor into it and make sure the gift has a cool twist to its design or purpose. That’s why this funny radiology notebook will be a great gift choice for any radiography student.
- Bone Shape Ballpoint PensJust like there can never be enough notebooks in a student’s desk or backpack, there can also never be enough pens, as they can run out of them real fast because of how much information they have to write down on a daily basis during their classes or studying. This set of bone shaped ballpoint pens will be the coolest gift choice for any radiography student, as it has such a cool and humorous twist to the design. The future radiographer will totally love this gift and it will definitely make their day and put a smile on their face.
- Radiologist Braided Leather BraceletAnother great little gift for any radiography students who wants to proudly show off their skills and their future job, a braided rope leather bracelet that’s made of stainless steel and PU leather, engraved with a cool message that reads: ‘’Trust me I’m an awesome radiologist’’. Every student will appreciate such message as during those years they are still studying and might be insecure about their level of knowledge, so this bracelet will be a great motivational gift as well that will inspire them to study even harder and become the absolute best in their future job.
- Radiography Review Value Pack (Exam Prep)Even though radiography students already own tons of books covering radiography practices and they have to use them on a daily basis for studying, they will always benefit from additional ones that will broaden their knowledge even further. Though this might not be the coolest and most exciting gift, it will definitely be very useful and have a positive impact on their future work life which is what all medical students value the most. This radiography examination Q&A book that comes together with a radiography exam preparation book in a pack will be an amazing gift for their studies and professional education.
- Human Skeleton ModelWhen you think about X-rays, the first picture that might come to your mind is a scan that mainly shows bones. Even though radiographers can see much more than just bones on those scans, human skeleton is still an essential and often fundamental part of every other aspect of medicine and as such needs to be understood completely by all medical workers. That's why this human size skeleton model will be a great gift for any radiography student to place as a decorative piece in their study room and maybe even use it later in life in their work place.
- X-ray Shield Radiation ProtectionGetting x-rays or performing them means being exposed to some radiation, and even though the levels of radiation during medical scans are minimal and not harmful, a prolonged exposure to it might negatively affect health. That’s why it’s not dangerous for patients, but it can be for medical workers who spend every day in x-ray rooms. This is why everybody who uses radiography equipment needs to wear protective clothing, and gifting a radiography student their own will make them feel really professional, and they might use it later in their work. This set has a full body apron as well as a special thyroid protection part.
- Anti-Radiation Wrap PonchoNobody knows more about radiation than radiographers, and in their student years they learn about the dangers of it as well as the protective measures that will save them from any harmful effects. Although there are professional shields they have to use during their work, they are also well aware of the dangers of common radiation each one of us is exposed to in our everyday life, even in our safest place - our home. The radiation of electrical devices, such as computers and smart phones is a real thing, and this wrap cotton poncho will be a cozy yet effective protection against that, especially important for radiographers who are already exposed to even stronger radiation at work.
- ‘’Caffeinate Before You Irradiate’’ Coffee MugDue to the fact that radiographers are exposed to the radiation every day, even though they are always safely protected from the negative effects of it, this funny coffee mug will bring some humor into the student’s everyday life as they study for exams, or in their future work years and coffee breaks. This bright yellow coffee mug made of premium ceramic is a perfect gift for any radiography student, with a funny message printed on it that reads: ‘’Caffeinate Before You Irradiate’’, and will be the special mug that will make them the cool colleague in their future workplace. Ideal for those coffee breaks in between patients.
- Medical Uniform Scrub SetEven though radiography students will have to use special uniforms that provide protection against radiation in their everyday work life, underneath them they need to wear the regular medical uniform. Surprising a young radiography student with a professional medical scrub set will make them feel really special and professional, one step closer to fulfilling their dream, graduating and getting a real job as a radiography professional. Seeing themselves in a real medical uniform will inspire them to study hard even when they lack motivation, and make them finish those exams faster, as they will be eager to see themselves in a professional environment as soon as possible.
- X-Ray Radiography Clip Neck KeychainStudents often have to carry many things with themselves to their busy university days full of important classes and a packed schedule, and during that busy schedule there is a high possibility of losing some important small things such as keys, smartphones or cards.

This Merrill’s pocket guide is a handy reference that’s summarizing all the essential information they will encounter in their future clinical practice, such as step-by-step explanations of how to position the patient for approximately 170 commonly requested radiographic projections.
- X-Ray BroochesBecause future doctors love showing off with their field of study and future job, any type of jewelry related to their specialization will be their new favorite piece in the accessories collection. However, professional doctors are not supposed to wear a lot of eye-catching jewelry as it does not look professional and can be distracting for the patients. This especially applies to radiography specialists as jewelry is not allowed near the X-ray equipment, neither for doctors nor for patients. That’s why this little brooch will be a subtle piece they will be able to proudly wear in their everyday life while still looking professional. Its cool design makes it look like a real X-ray.
