Best Christmas Gift Ideas for Nurses 2017 – The holiday season is on the horizon and it’s time to get started creating your shopping list and deciding which gift to buy for which person. If you have a friend that’s a nurse or if you want to give gifts to nurses at you or your child’s doctor’s office, then you can find some meaningful items they’ll love.
Because they’re on their feet all day long, a great gift idea that you can get for nurses is a pair of comfortable shoes, a thick pair of warm footie socks in the winter time and a foot massager for home use.
To wear at home or at work beneath a smock, you can get t-shirts with heartfelt or funny sayings that deal with life as a nurse. Or, find a set of scrubs that you’d like to gift to a special nurse in your life.
Being a nurse means being on the go. Nurses often have a lot of items they have to bring to and from work, because nurses have to take continuing education classes to stay up to date on new medical procedures and medications.
There are books and charts and portable medical devices. A tote bag that has plenty of pockets would make getting these items back and forth a lot easier and help them keep everything organized. These bags are stylish and come in various colors. You can also get them in leather, too.
Snacks are always a hit because of how hectic the nursing lifestyle can be. More often than not, working in the medical field means a rushed lunch or not getting one at all. Gourmet snack baskets with trail mix and nuts, popcorn and individual tea packets would be appreciated.
Hand lotion gift sets make great gifts to help sooth away skin that gets dry from using the harsh hand cleansers they have to use during the workday. Bubble bath products and spa baskets filled with bath products and decadent chocolates or wine and cheese that are set in a lined, keepsake basket will give her a night of pampering.
Nurses often feel that their work is a calling, so gifts that reflect their love of their work means a lot to them. Jewelry will appeal to any nurse and you can get necklaces that have the medical symbol or ones that have a nurse’s hat or other items related to the field.
Bracelets and earrings – like cute little animals or birds dressed as a nurse make great gifts. Beautifully framed poems about nurses are gifts she’ll love hanging in her workstation. You can also find gifts that will appeal to her or him outside of work. Give her a gift certificate to a local movie theater so that she can have a movie night or a movie weekend out with friends.
