Great Holiday Gift Ideas for Travel Nurses

This article provided by: Gifted Healthcare

After spending the entire year caring for others, travel nurses deserve to be recognized. The holiday season is the perfect time to show love and appreciation for the travel nurse in your life.

Gift shopping for a Travel RN this holiday season? Read on for 5 great ideas for gifts for nurses!

1. Monogrammed Stethoscope

A monogrammed stethoscope is a fantastic gift for the registered nurse in your life. Companies like allheart offer head or tube engraving and some of the best stethoscope brands on the market. 

Engrave your nurse’s name or include a special message, turning a common medical tool into a one-of-a-kind memento.

2. An Awesome Book on Nursing

Whether they’re used while settling into a new home or en route to a new assignment, books are great gifts for travel nurses. There are many fantastic reads on nursing that are both fun and educational.

Nurses of all kinds are sure to love Notes on Nursing: What It Is, and What It Is Not by Florence Nightingale, one of the most important nurses in history.

How to Survive and Maybe Even Love Your Life as a Nurse by Kelli S. Dunham is a great resource for new nurses.

Inspired Nurse by Rich Bluni is a beautiful tribute to nurses that explores the great joys and sorrows of the nursing experience.

3. High-Quality Drinkware

Travel nurses are always on the go, and having a portable water or coffee container is a must. They will love and appreciate high-quality drinkware that preserves the temperature of their favorite beverages.

YETI is always a great choice for bottles, tumblers, and mugs. Their containers provide fantastic insulation and are made of stainless steel.

4. Nurse’s Gift Box from Nightingale Express

Nightingale Express was founded by travel RN Aishleen O’Brien. They offer custom gift boxes and accessories specifically for nurses.

Let your favorite travel nurse know you’re thinking of them by mailing a gift box. Packages like The Florence, The DayShifter, and The NightShifter provide premium-quality nursing essentials that are perfect for your favorite nurse.

5. Compression Socks

Compression socks might not seem exciting, but they are an extremely useful gift for travel nurses.

Nurses are on their feet all day, which can cause aches and pains. High-quality compression socks improve circulation and prevent blisters, allowing your favorite nurse to remain comfortable through their entire shift. That’s quite a gift.

Don’t be afraid to get creative! There are plenty of fun styles to choose from.

The holidays are right around the corner. Give the travel nurse in your life a gift that makes their long days and nights a little brighter!
