    One of my closest friends is leaving for Med school next week and her family is throwing her a surprise going away party. No gift is required but I wanted to get her something special. Any ideas? I'm no good at being creative and I'm sure someone in her family has already bought her a stethoscope.

    I'm going to a med school sendoff tomorrow for the daughter of a friend. Same situation. The only thing I could think of was a Starbucks card, because I know med students need caffeine!

    What about something to pamper herself with? Or little travel size items (lotion, body wipes, toothpaste, toothbrush...) that she could keep in her locker at the hospital.

    I dated a guy for years and our relationship continued into his first year of med school ... it is a very stressful time with lots of questioning of abilities ... so, anything to help one unwind, or anything to inspire would be greatly appreciated. Maybe a spa treatment? Or those books that don't require a lot of brain power but leave you feeling uplifted (Hallmark sells them).
