3) A Custom-Made Gift Basket ($20-$100)
This is one you can put together yourself, tailoring it perfectly for the nurse in question. Do they love to curl up with a good book, some chocolate and a glass of red wine? Or is getting pampered with luxurious lotions and heavenly bath crystals more their thing? Heck, maybe she likes all of the above! When you make it yourself, you can include any combination of their guilty little pleasures. You’ll also get bonus points for the thought you put into it. Everyone wins!
4) A Netflix Subscription ($7-$9 monthly)
After an overnight shift, there’s nothing better than slipping into some PJs and relaxing to a 30 Rock marathon. And the last thing they want to do is go searching for their favorite titles at the local video store. Give the gift of relaxation and entertainment right at their doorstep with a prepaid Netflix subscription. Nine dollars a month sound pricey? Not to worry. You can select any number of months you’d like. Just make sure he or she doesn’t already have a subscription!
5) A Tote bag ($10 – $50)
Thanks to their long hours and ongoing need for education, nurses carry lots of things to work. A great tote bag will help the lug all of their belongings in a way that’s organized, stylish and easy to carry. Totes for nurses come in so many different forms – from minimalist to colorful, structure to slouchy, canvas to leather and everything in between. For a more personal touch, consider monogramming with your nurse’s name. No matter what you decide on, this is a gift that’s sure to satisfy.
