I’ve started looking for gift ideas for paramedics and EMTs because I have a relative who will soon be finishing her training and I want to buy an interesting graduation present. I like giving gifts that are memorable…. I’ve found that a memorable gift is usually either funny or very useful. So, I’ve tried to put gifts that fall into those two categories on this page. These ideas are ideal for graduation, Christmas, birthday, and other special occasions.
Coffee Mug with the Paramedic Prayer – And Featuring the Star of Life
A coffee mug like this one is a thoughtful gift idea. This one has a special paramedic prayer, making it an ideal gift for a Christian. If you’d like, you could put a gift card or other treat inside of it!
High Visibility EMT Jacket – Great for anyone who might be outside in the rain! This is something that they might need. It has pretty good reviews and it comes in a large range of sizes, from small to 4XL.
Paramedic Symbol Cufflinks. These come in a high quality gift box! Cuff-Daddy has a lot of really interesting cufflinks that make great gift ideas.
Leatherman High Quality Multi-Tool – This pocket tool has knives, pliers, wire cutters, blades, and other useful items! Have you heard of the Leatherman brand? They have a very good reputation and their multi tools are often recommended for first responders and emergency workers. I’ve read lots of the Amazon reviews and they generally get an average of 4+ stars!
A quality multi-tool is a great piece of equipment for a paramedic or EMT to own. This one will sure help them solve many problems that they come across. Check out the reviews.
EMT Watch – A Practical and Beautiful Gift Idea. This has rose gold trim, large numbers, and luminous hands. This is also water resistant and has a silicon strap for comfort.
Best Unique Gift Idea – Paramedic Wine Bottle Holder – For the EMT or Paramedic who enjoys wine! This highly detailed paramedic sculpture is designed to hold a bottle of wine! It is handcrafted out of recycled steel! For the ultimate gift, give this with a favorite bottle of wine. This is something that you can be pretty sure they don’t already own! Great gift idea for the person who already has all necessary supplies, clothes, equipment, medical books, etc.
Great Deal on an EMS Jump Bag – This kit comes with most everything for a starter ready bag! I’ve read the reviews of this kit, and it looks like a good starter kit for a first responder. If you want to buy a gift that will help them out, this is a good item. It comes with some supplies and they can add more supplies to fill out the bag.
This kit is a great item for a Paramedic or EMT to carry in their car incase they come across an emergency.
A Pocket Field Guide is a Must Have! – Perfect Gift for the Student or Graduate While working on this gift guide, I researched what EMT and Paramedics recommend for graduation gifts, and this pocket guide comes highly recommended! It’s great for looking up medication dosages and other important information. As a couple of the reviewers point out, software on cell phones doesn’t work when you don’t have a signal, and having a hard copy is important.

A few last thoughts. I hope this page was helpful to you. I always try to think about what I would want to receive. I think I’m good in putting myself in others’ shoes. I try to only link to high quality items. I read reviews and consider whether a product is good or not before recommending it. Sometimes things change, so if I missed something, please don’t hesitate to comment in the guestbook above.
Do you know someone who is training to become a paramedic? What are your thoughts on congratulation gift ideas? I’d love to hear your ideas and thoughts.
