Nurses are often referred to as “angels”—and there’s no surprise as to why. These dedicated women and men deliver experienced and gentle care when we need it the most.
National Nurse’s Day is on May 6, 2013 and it’s the perfect time to show the nurse in your life your appreciation! I’ve gathered some unique gift ideas for Nurse’s Day that will show just how much you care. After all, an ol’ present won’t do for an exceptional nurse. Here are my top unique gift ideas for Nurse’s Day:
Scrubs aren’t at the high end of the fashion scale. So spice up their occupation outfit with unique gift ideas for Nurse’s Day, like this set of caduceus symbol earrings. The caduceus is a long-used symbol that embodies the medical practices, making these earrings the ideal gift for the nurse you love.
These earrings are 14k yellow gold and will add just the right amount of shine to everyday scrubs. What’s more, the earrings are studs, so they won’t become tangled in hair or get in the way of daily responsibilities.
If you live with or love a nurse, you know that time is critical, whether he or she is conducting a test or administering medications. So thank the nurse you love with a personalized nursing watch from Occupation Gifts. It’s one of the top unique gift ideas for Nurse’s Day!
This watch is handcrafted with miniatures of a nurse’s hat, stethoscope, and pill bottles next to the watch face. Available in a pink Italian leather band with your choice of gold or silver accents, it features quartz movement. Customize the watch with any name, up to 10 characters, and be rest assured she’ll get plenty of use out of it!
Does a nurse you know have just a little bit of spunk? Then this is one of the unique gift ideas for Nurse’s Day that should be on your short-list: a license plate frame from Café Press. Your nurse will get a chuckle or two when she starts driving around town in this frame, which reads “Be Nice to Me. I May Be Your Nurse Someday!”
The frame is made from durable shiny chrome, and the message is a waterproof vinyl decal that is UV and water-resistant. At 12” x 16” it fits on most car makes and models.
If anyone deserves a yummy treat, it’s a nurse. That’s what makes this cookie gift basket from Cookies in Bloom one of the best unique gift ideas for Nurse’s Day. Available in a range of sizes, this basket offers a selection of delicious almond-flavored sugar cookies artfully hand-decorated with decedent butter cream icing.
Cookies are decorated in a variety of nurse-themed designs, including a prescription bottle, a bear nurse, and a prescription pad. The completed arrangement, which is wrapped in gift cellophane and tied with coordinating ribbons, averages about 20” tall, so it’s sure to make an impact when it arrives.
