Top 10 Gift Ideas For Nurses

With the Christmas season here, finding the best gift for nurses can be easy. It can be easy because nurses all have a common language. If you look at the memes on the RnMindset instagram feed, there are a lot of memes that regular people might not find funny at all, but nurses find it hilarious. Finding a good gift for a nurse is easy when you can look into the things that nurses want, and need.

Here are the top 10 best gift ideas for nurses.

#10 Compression Socks.

Compression socks might be misunderstood, but if you have a job requiring the amount of standing, running, and lifting such as nurses do, you will know that having good socks that are comfortable, and give a boost with circulation help tremendously.

A fun idea for the Christmas season is to find socks that have either a Christmas theme, or a nursing/medical theme.

#9 Nurse Bag.

Whether the nurse you are buying a gift for is a man or woman, finding a good medical bag is very helpful. It is nice to be able to have all of your supplies in one place. This is also a good item to have when you are in nursing school. If you show up to a clinical without a stethoscope, or something else that you need, you will find yourself in trouble. Having everything you need in one spot, that is designed for medical gear, like your stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, eye flashlight etc...will help nurses get out the door faster without looking to make sure they have everything they need.

#8. Nurse Undershirts.

During the winter months it might be obvious to wear a little extra during the long shifts, but even during the summer months hospitals are usually cold, and nurses like to wear undershirts. The type of undershirts that nurses are allowed to wear is usually plain white or black. Undershirts provide comfort, and warmth, and are also a stylish piece of the nursing uniform that many nurses are wearing right now.

They are comfortable to wear during long hours standing on your feet, yet provide support to your arches.

Buying a good fitbit is great for nurses. Nurses have long hours, and are most likely focused on their health. Having a good quality fitbit helps nurses in many ways. Nurses are constantly using their watch to record the time of when they last gave a Norco, to counting the drops in an IV drop chamber. Fitbit is a great product that is inexpensive, and makes the number 5 on this top ten.

This product is a must for all nurses. No matter where nurses work, they are most likely working with, or around people. People spread germs, and nurses have their phones on them.
