When buying a gift for someone who is a nurse, don't buy just any generic item. Think of humorous gifts with inside jokes for the medical profession, sentimental gifts that show how proud you are of your loved one's career or practical gifts that complement her life as a nurse.
Unique Humorous Gifts
There are many humorous gifts available for nurses. Ideas include a medical syringe pen (a ballpoint pen that looks like a syringe or needle), a T-shirt or tote bag with a humorous nurse joke (such as: "Do you want to talk to the doctor in charge or the nurse who knows what's going on?"), knee socks with an image of the leg and foot bones, a hat with the image of a brain or a key chain that looks like a spinal cord. Other ideas include a nurse action figure, nurse's cookie bouquet (sugar cookies decorated to look like nurses and placed in a vase), cocktail shaker that looks like a prescription pill bottle, "Nurses Night before Christmas" book, box of chocolate Band-Aids, brain stress toy or sexy nurse costume.
Unique Sentimental Gifts
A sentimental gift is something that has special meaning to the person receiving it or means a lot coming from the person giving it. Ideas include a nurse's guardian angel pin or figurine, nurse appreciation bracelet, Precious Moments "Nurse's Blessings" music box, nurses prayer printed on a blanket or other household item or charm bracelet full of medical charms.
Unique Practical Gifts
There are plenty of unique yet practical gifts available for nurses. Ideas include a stethoscope with a heart-shaped chest piece, "hip clip" stethoscope holder, plush stethoscope cover in the shape of an animal, personalised badge holder (such as a dog-shaped holder for someone who love dogs), beaded lanyard, model skeleton, foot bath or massager (to use after working long shifts), educational DVD set related to the medical profession or a magazine or journal subscription relevant to nurses.
