If you have a nurse in your life, you are aware of how hard their work is. If you are helping a nurse to celebrate a birthday or just want to give a gift to thank them, we have a few gift ideas for nurses that they will appreciate and cherish.
One of the best things to give as a gift is something that represents their profession. There are many gift ideas from gear for work to items for home. We are also adding some gift ideas for nursing students and graduates. Regardless of how long they have been a nurse, these gifts will be perfect to show how much they are appreciated.
On The Job Gifts
When someone becomes a nurse, they spend the majority of their day on the job. You can give a practical gift that will help make the job more organized or comfortable for them, especially if they are working long shifts a lot.
A heavy duty tumbler can keep drinks both hot and cold. This will be versatile enough to use for both ice water or coffee. This is especially good for when your favorite nurse is working a double and needs lots of caffeine. Make it extra special by adding a gift card for the local coffee shop.
Those longs shifts can be quite grueling on the feet. These socks are great for promoting good circulation and for preventing swelling.
Lightweight Jacket or Fleece
You know how cold hospitals can be. You can get a medical scrub jacket or an athletic one that can be worn any time.
Badge or ID Holder
Every nurse needs to wear ID. You can get a badge clip or even a necklace type ID holder that will match scrubs just fine.
These are great for storing everything in one place. Be sure that there are plenty of compartments for equipment. One that holds a clipboard or laptop is even better.
Pens are always needed and you know they always manage to disappear just when you need one. You can make sure that they have plenty of pens so they are never without one.
Gifts to Enjoy at Home
When a nurse is finally done working for the day or has a few days off, spending time just relaxing is great for the body and the soul. You can find a gift that can help them to relax and enjoy their down-time
Fuzzy Soft Blanket
There’s nothing better than curling up with a good book and chilling out unless of course, you’re binge-watching your favorite television show. A soft and fuzzy blanket just adds to the relaxation.
Wine and Glasses
Wine is perfect for a day off. Be sure to get your favorite caregiver his or her favorite wine. Adding a few monogrammed wine glasses gives it that personalized touch.
A scent that reduces stress can be the perfect way to relax. The soft glow from a candle’s flame is a nice change from all the bright fluorescent lighting in a hospital.
Who wants to get dressed on days off? Lounging around in a personalized robe is a great way to enjoy some time off.
