The holidays have arrived and it’s time to show that special nurse in your life how much they mean to you! We’ve compiled this list of the best gift ideas for any type of nurse from student to seasoned nurse and everyone in between.
1. Cell-Phone Sanitizer
Cell-phones are some of the dirtiest objects we own. Imagine working in a hospital, then touching your phone with all those germs. YUCK! Help your favorite nurse out by getting them this portable phone sanitizer – equipped with a charger.
2. Prescription Coffee Mug
Seriously, how cute is this mug!? Yea, nurses may advise their patients to decrease coffee intake – while self-prescribing… coffee PO Q2H PRN.
3. Nurse Sweaters Are All The Rave
No matter what kind of nurse they are they probably love their job and also adore anything nurse related. Snag a trendy shirt or get into the holiday spirit with these fun options!
4. Silicone Wedding Ring – To Wear At Work.
Diamonds can cut through latex gloves and FORBID that it happens while a nurse is anywhere near bodily fluids. These rings are the perfect solution and can even be worn while working out! They’re comfortable and durable – leave the nice ring at home, wear this instead. Made for men or women.
5. Personal Massager
Nurses are busy people and don’t always have time to book professional massages. After a long shift, this personal massager comes in handy to relieve knots, tension, spasms, aches, and pains. Percussion therapy relieves muscle tension, knots, spasms, aches, and pains. It’s powerful and can be customized for various types of massage including deep tissue and trigger point therapy on the neck, back, hands and face.
Staying hydrated (cough-cough… caffeinated) while working is a must!
So, how do nurses make iced-coffee? First, they make the coffee. Then, get busy and forget about the coffee. End up drinking it cold! LOL. That won’t happen with this YETI tumbler. Ever. Yeti is king.
7. Every Nurse Needs A Good Stethoscope:
