Nurses Week: Gift Guide

Check out this Nurses Week Gift Guide for great tips on recognizing that special Travel Nurse in your life.

Nurses Week is fast approaching.

Nurses Week – May 6-12th 

Do you have a travel nurse in your life? Wonder how you can thank them this Nurses Week? We put together a holiday gift guide for the travel nurse that is good any time of the year.

Don’t forget that whatever gift you choose for your Travel Nurse, make sure it’s small and appropriate to traveling.

1.) Food

Is there a special grocery item that your traveler can’t find locally? Something that they found while traveling that they just can’t stop talking about? Browse the grocery isles and find something unique to your local. (spices, and snacks top this list).

2.) Home-Made

Everyone loves something that has a bit of heart and thought into it. Send your traveler a box of home-made cookies, or another of their favorite treats.

3.) From the Kids

Travelers miss being away from grand-children, nieces and nephews (and other children in their life) What better than to have your little one create a hand-made card or picture to say Thank You to the traveler in your life.

4.) Everything in a Jar

I just LOVE these. You can tailor them to suit just about anyone. My favorite is the “Energy in a Jar” – Everyone knows that nursing takes everything out of you and a little boost of energy never hurts.

5.) Compression Socks

Nurses spend a lot of time on their feet. In addition, travelers often spend hours driving from assignment to assignment. Compression socks aren’t just for the elderly anymore. Check out these recommended Compression Socks that would make a great gift for any nurse this Nurses Week.
