Last year when Nurses Week and Nurses Day rolled around we were early in the pandemic. No one knew quite what to do, staff was exhausted and stressed and finding enough PPE supplies was almost impossible. Now, a year later vaccines are rolling out and everyone is beginning to breathe a sigh of relief. Nurses week may look a little different this year, but in a good way.
Our ideas for Nurses Appreciation Gifts from previous years are still relevant, especially these ideas that are all about pampering and relaxation.
The reality is that even with vaccines rolling out and cases of COVID declining, it will be forever ingrained in our minds to sanitize everything more than we ever did before. UV Sanitizing wands and boxes are timely gifts that Nurses can not only use on their personal items such as phones after work, but that the whole family can use to keep items sanitized. There are an abundance of choices in different price ranges to fit your needs.
A good lip balm always makes a nice gift, but this amazing lip butter makes a terrific small gift during Nurses Week. This lip butter is seriously amazing- and will be so appreciated by dry lips roughed up by masks all day. You can even pair it up with anti-friction soothing stick, which helps cut down on the skin irritation of wearing extra PPE.
Used alone or as a set, this anti-friction soothing stick and lip butter make great Nurses Week Gifts.
Fun items such as custom woven socks, fanny packs, which are great for running, walking or other exercise or even to keep up with supplies while visiting patients and earbuds that come in a variety of styles and price ranges offer a way to tune the rest of the world out at the end of a shift or on break.
Having time to eat can sometimes be hard to find for nurses so items such as these bento boxes, stainless steel insulated food container (perfect for soup) or this food storage box that is perfect for meal prepping are perfect to give them a little extra time to eat and relax instead of waiting in line to order food.
Save a rainy day walk to and from the car with an umbrella such as this one that comes with a stock “thank you” message on the underside and your imprint on one outside panel. The illuminator umbrella has a built in light in the handle making it multifunctional at night. Or choose this umbrella with a reflective border to promote safety with maximum visibility. Umbrellas are a useful gift for Nurses Day that are sure to be appreciated.
