Top 5 Nurse Gifts Ideas
It’s the first of December and Christmas is just around the corner and for those who have not yet taken care of their Christmas gifts, you still have 23 days to choose and wrap it up and be all ready for Christmas day. But this hub is not about Christmas gift ideas as I see a lot of hubs with some really great suggestions. My hub is more on some nurse gift ideas that are really awesome and cheap and not necessarily just for Christmas but year-long and any occasion nurse gifts suggestions.
Good nurses make such great impact on our lives especially when they really take such good care of our loved ones. Most often than not we become close to a nurse when you feel how much they do, not only because it is their job but they are by nature such caring individuals. Celebrating their presence in our lives, although we hope it does not happen again, is easy to appreciate. And we want them to know how much good they have given us. These nurse gifts ideas are something that I saw are much needed by these great nurses.
1. The Gift of Time
When I made mother’s day gift suggestions, my number 1 and 2 gift ideas were the gift of time, giving 2 options how to give the gift of time. The same way that mothers want and need this, nurse gifts should also be a gift of time. Or to be more specific, the gift of A-L-O-N-E time. They spend a lot of their time giving and caring and I feel they will absolutely appreciate a time that is simply for them. If they are married, then remove everyone from the house, including pets and in-laws, for a day and allow the nurse to enjoy time alone. He or she can do whatever she wants to so, whether they spend it watching TB, taking the time to clean her house, her fridge or whatever, the important thing is that he or she gets to choose what to do with their time. This is easily done if you know the nurse personally, if not then there are other ways for you to give her alone time but it may be a little expensive and that nurse gifts ideas comes next.
A day of relaxation wherever he or she wants in whatever manner they deem best. Spa gift certificates will allow recipients to choose a service from a diverse menu based on their own personal taste.

All these nurse gifts ideas can be printed and given personally, emailed or sent as a gift in a gift box, with additional charge for shipping.

3. Gift Card
There are great nurse gifts available in the internet nowadays. But if you feel that you want to give your nurse the ability to choose the nurse gifts he or she wants, and then give her a gift card to a store that carries inexpensive medical gifts and jewelry and let her choose what he/she wants. This would ensure you do not pick something offensive or laughable to give your favorite nurse.
Books are a great way to relax, whenever wherever. If you can find who your nurse favorite author is that would be the best. You can go to the author’s website and order an autographed book. Or buy the latest book from his/her favorite author in the latest book store. If you do not have the time to find out favorite author, here are some great books you can give a nurse.
