Great Holiday Gift Ideas for Nurses

The holiday season is here and many of us are caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays. It can be hard to know exactly what to get your co-workers. But if you are a fellow nurse, you know that those “nurse knick-knacks” are probably not on their list. Fortunately, we’ve got some great ideas that will even make the crankiest supervisor crack a smile when he/she unwraps your gift.

 

Manicure/Pedicure – Now it is easy to get this gift for someone who gets their nails done regularly, but why not get it for someone on your gift list who doesn’t usually get their nails polished and who could use a little pampering? If you’ve ever been to a nail salon, you know it is more than just picking out what color they choose to polish your nails. Giving this gift means someone gets a full hour to relax and they leave looking terrific. It’s the perfect gift to give that busy mom nurse or new nurse you know who is always on-the-go.

 

Coffee Mug w/Treats – Anyone can give a coffee mug, but what makes this gift special is giving your fellow nurse their favorite “with coffee” treat that they love to enjoy. It could be a cookie they indulge themselves in on a good day. Or a chocolate they’ll buy occasionally. Most nurses you know will be generous and share any treats they receive, so be sure you give them a big box or package of treats that can be passed around to the group and they’ll still be able to enjoy some themselves.

 

A Really Good Read – A very busy nurse I once know loved to read books every chance she got. Of course she was too busy during her shifts to read, but on her days off, she was known to read one or even two books in a day. You probably know a nurse or two like this, who simply can’t resist a really good read. Giving a bookstore gift card can sometimes be the best gift because then they can pick out a book they haven’t read. Or ask if they’ve got a book in mind they’ve been longing to read & go pick it up for them!

 

The Gift of Laughter – This is a great gift to give any nurse, as we know sometimes the days can be long and sometimes they can be stressful or tense. Any nurse could use a good laugh at the end of the day. Get tickets to your local comedy club and have a Nurses Night Out after the holidays. Or get them a DVD of their favorite TV series like Seinfeld, Friends or The Golden Girls so they can giggle and laugh while changing out of their scrubs.
