Top 5 Nurse Gifts Ideas

Updated on August 26, 2015

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.


2. Spa

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. They can choose the how, the where and the when, giving them all the freedom of choice, except of course the price because it is up to you how much the spa gift certificate will cost. 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.

RED DOOR SPAS - Red Door Spa Gift Cards allow you to give a special, more personal gift without any of the guesswork! Gift Cards can be redeemed at any Red Door location nationwide regardless of your selection. Available in varied denominations starting at $25.

Let's just hope I do receive a spa certificate from these spas I featured.

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.

4. Books

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.

Inspired Nurse by Rich Bluni, RN -
According to nurses who have received this book, it made them remember why they chose this journey, and they found new ways to look at their career through his (the authors) lens. Nursing is a wonderfully rewarding career but oftentimes challenging and physically and mentally demanding. This book gives nurses a new lease during the times they ask why they persist in their careers; it renews their passion and even brings them back to why they do their work every day.

Angels on Call: Inspiring True Stories from the ER by Robert D. Lesslie
"Angels on Call" is a collection of stories written by Dr. Robert D. Lesslie, MD, he describes some of his experiences and the people he met while working as an E.R. doctor in hospital in Rock Hill, SC. This book makes you realize some lessons in life, one being how fragile life really is. It has Bible verses along with each story that will help you find peace and remind you that God puts angels where we need them. Makes you realize that despite what we see, read and hear on the news, there are still kind and caring people out there.

      @Rich Bluni, I am truly honored and grateful that you have read my hub. And why shouldn’t I recommend your book? It’s not often that you get to read one that is truly inspiring, nurse or not. I have seen how much my sister loves being a nurse, and your book made me appreciate more what she and the rest of you have been going through and are doing for all your patients. Merry Christmas to you and your whole family!
