Since May 6 is National Nurses Day and kicks off the start of National Nurses Awareness Week, why not get the nurses in your life some amazing gifts? Show them how much you care with any of these sweet gifts! \n1. A piece of jewelry: Jewelry is always a sweet and sentimental gift. Whether you get her a diamond necklace to wear on special occasions or choose one of our silicone rings for men he can wear while on shift, jewelry always sends a message of love and appreciation. \n2. A pair of sturdy shoes: Your favorite nurses spend long hours on their feet. From tending to patients and running reports to and from doctors, they’re constantly on the move. A pair of sturdy, supportive shoes is a must. Not only should they have arch support, but they should clean easily as well! Nurses get a lot of gross stuff on their shoes – bodily fluids, namely – so they need shoes that will clean off easily with just a cloth and warm water. \n3. Something to de-stress with: Whether you get them a handheld massager or a Himalayan salt lamp to plug in, nurses need something to de-stress with! Their shifts can last for 12 hours or longer, so giving something they can use to combat their high-stress job is always appreciated. They can sit back and relax after a long shift – or even on their lunch break! – with your gift. \n\nSource: Photographer_Mhom\/Shutterstock.com\n4. A personalized badge reel: Your nurse friends and family probably have so many badge reels already, but they can never get enough! Badge reels keep their work IDs safe and attached, all while showing a little flair and personality. Depending on their position or even the place they work, they might have to wear uniformed scrubs. A personalized badge reel is perfect for them! Whether you get one that’s monogrammed, one that shows off their favorite TV show or one that reminds them how important their job as a nurse is, they’ll love it.\n5. Items to wear on shift…that won’t get destroyed! One of the many hazards while working in nursing is that personal items can get destroyed. This happens a lot with jewelry. You’ll often notice nurses won’t wear too much metal while on shift. If your wife is a nurse, consider getting her a set of women’s stackable rings to show your appreciation – and to keep that beautiful diamond engagement ring safe at home! Other items for them to wear on shift include caps, headbands and even socks!\n6. Personalized water bottle: Nurses are always on the go, but they stay hydrated a lot, too! They can never have enough personalized water bottles. Give any of the nurses in your life a monogrammed water bottle complete with a stethoscope or heart rate decal for a sweet and unique appreciation gift! They’ll love having another bottle to rotate through amongst their stash. Plus, there’s a pretty good chance they’ve got a few bottles lying around their nurses’ station or hiding in their car because they’re so busy they forget to bring it home!\n\nSource: Chompoo Suriyo\/Shutterstock.com\n7. A smartwatch: If they don’t already have a smartwatch or a step-tracker, Nurses Appreciation Day is the perfect time to get one for them! Since nurses are always moving, they don’t always have time to stop and scroll through their messages or catch up on emails. However, a smartwatch can let them quickly see the communications coming in, listen to music or even track their health and activity without needing to put too much focus onto the task. If they aren’t the most technologically savvy, a simple step-tracker is a great option! Today’s step-trackers include heart rate as part of their metrics, so it’s great for nurses to keep track of their pulse while tracking their steps, too. \n8. Face masks and travel-sized hand sanitizer: For many of your nurse friends and family, they’ve probably stocked themselves full of masks and sanitizer, but 2020 reminded us we can never have enough. Give your nurse friends some personalized face masks and give them some travel-sized hand sanitizer to use before and after each shift, when going to the grocery store or picking the kids up from school! They’ll appreciate knowing you’re thinking of their health and safety with their job. Add them along with some other appreciation gifts, such as our wedding rings for nurses or even a personalized stethoscope, as a unique gift set perfect for every nurse!
