Looking for a gift for a medical librarian?

Check out the NLM Giftshop. I particularly like the coasters, given my background in mediaeval studies, but others may prefer the botanical gifts or electronic gizmos. Anyway, it's a little different place to look. Another great place to look is the ALA Store. Or you can try Overdue Media (which is related to the comic strip syndicated here).

Just a thought. We squirrelly librarians are hard to shop for; sure, a book is great, but how to know we haven't read it yet?--(although checking out the Amazon wish list of the person is always a possibility).
