Pharmacist retirement gift

Pharmacist gift

This is a retirement gift I did recently. I was told there were five generations of pharmacists in the family. I knew there were probably far too many mortar and pestles in their gift collections! People come to me for gifts that will really make an impression.

After considerable thought this is what I came up with. Sparing you lots of details here are a few highlights. I decided the base could be like the tray they count pills on. I made the capsule and two “main” pills. I balanced it out with three small pills with the recipients name spelled out with one letter on each pill.

I like to hear about the person you are honoring. Let me think about some ideas on how to create a piece that will really surprise them and make them happy. Why do ordinary gifts when you can do extraordinary?
