Is there anything associated with his work or line of study that would be appropriate?

Does he have an IPad? Does he need a new laptop or netbook? Any other electronics? Will his work involve travel? Does he need a GPS?

Does he have a hobby or interest?

non-romantic is the route i am looking for

ah, well there goes my first thought 😉

what about something in his field – doesnt have to be current equipment/book that he can use now but something vintage to show where his field has come from

Does he have a model of the brain to use with his clients? His colleagues could help pick one that was appropriate.

Does he have a membership in the American Psychological Association? check with his colleagues to see of that is the appropriate organization.

A dopamine molecule key chain?

I got my newly minted doctor boyfriend a weekend away in Tasmania – and he proposed to me on the trip!!  Would his coworkers be willing to put in for a nice dinner out, or a night away at a sweet B & B for you guys?  Or were you sure you wanted a “thing” type gift? If so, how about a bottle of really nice booze?  Or a beautiful globe for his office?

Instead of an iPad, what about an Android tablet? I got my husband the Samsung Galaxy Tab for a wedding gift, and it was a few hundred dollars less than an iPad. If your husband has a droid phone, he would probably actually be more comfortable with something like the Tab than an iPad. 

Another option for something techy would be a Kindle or Nook. After all, he is going to have much more time for pleasure reading now!
