Thoughtful Nurse Christmas Gifts

Thoughtful Nurse Christmas Gifts

It’s crazy to think we’re about to enter the festive season for 2019, yet here we are! It’s been a turbulent and excessively stressful year for nurses, on top of the usual demands of the job, there have been increased staff shortages and (dare we mention it) Brexit issues ongoing!

As Christmas approaches we have sought out some of the most awesome and thoughtful nurse Christmas gifts that we know any nurse would be delighted to receive! (or gift to yourself!) Nurses, you’re worth it!

Heatable Microwave Slippers

Nurses are on their feet all day, usually for 10 hours +. Any gift that pampers the feet is a winner for nurses, so when we saw these heatable microwave slippers, we knew these had to go on our thoughtful nurse Christmas gifts list! These slippers are quick and easy to heat up in the microwave, are non-slip, and gorgeously comfortable. Just as an added bonus, they are also lavender scented!

Foot Spa

Another foot pamper gift that keeps on giving all year round, the foot spa! Nothing like coming home after being on your feet all day, relaxing into your favourite chair and slipping your feet into a warm water filled, massaging, aromatherapy scented foot spa. There are many different makes and models to choose from, but rest assured that this is a gift any nurse would love to receive! (aromatherapy oils are a great addition to really finish this gift off!)

Massage Voucher

We are all well aware of the stresses related to being a nurse, what is required not only physically but mentally too. It is definitely a labour of love, but it does take it’s toll. A massage voucher is a wonderful gift for any nurse and a voucher means that he or she can book in for their appointment when they need it most! A more generic voucher would also allow the nurse to decide whether they would like to tailor their massage to a certain area of their body for example back, neck, legs or feet. (this is probably one of our top thoughtful nurse Christmas gifts)

Heatable Microwave Bottle

Heat is a healer and apart from making a person feel cosy and warm, a hot water bottle or hot pack can also be applied to any area of the body to soothe and ease aches and pains. We came across these Heatable Bottle Microwave Heat Packs, and think that one of these would be great for all nurses! They are furry and snuggly and quick and easy to heat in the microwave which makes them safer than the regular hot water filled bottle. Also they are lavender scented for that extra special relaxation touch!

Spotify Gift Card

The therapy of music is undeniable in reducing stress, lifting spirits, and altering the mood. For the nurse friend/colleague/family member in your life, a Spotify Gift Card would be a fabulous gift! They are easy to purchase online and can be bought for varying periods of time and cost. This would be especially appreciated by any nurse who does a lot of travelling to and from work we think!

Diffuser Water Bottle

We aren’t going to harp on about the importance of drinking water and especially for nurses to stay hydrated on a long, busy shift! The great thing about diffuser water bottles is that you can add your favourite fruit or fruit flavoured teas to make a refreshing and more appealing drink (that you are probably more likely to drink!) There are many options when deciding on the perfect water bottle for your gift. We came across a review for the 10 Best Infuser Water Bottles, so we’ll let you decide.

Nurse Christmas Gift Ideas

Nurse Christmas Gift Ideas

We’re well into December and that means many people are looking for gifts for family members and colleagues! We’ve been on the hunt for unique and quirky nurse Christmas gift ideas that are sure to be loved!

Whether you buying for a nurse colleague, friend or loved one, here are some nurse Christmas gift options that will be appreciated into the new year:

 Personalised Silver Fob Watch

With all the technology that we use in nursing and healthcare nowadays, the old fashioned nurse fob watch is still loved and used daily!  This stainless steel fob watch is a good choice and you can have it personalised with your favourite nurse’s name! The recipient of this gift will remember you each time they use their fob!

Nurse Bag

If you’re looking for something that’s quirky but also useful, you can’t go wrong with a nurse bag! Nurses always have a range of items to carry around with them! Made from durable, hardwearing material, these are a range of colourful and convenient bags. The company, Goodies for Nurses, make a whole range of useful, eye-catching products which are designed to make life easier for healthcare workers.

Nursing Mug

Few things are as important as the vessel that holds a nurse’s coffee or tea, and everyone should have their own mug for work. If you want to bring a smile to your nursing colleague’s lips every time they brew up then this is the perfect gift, and there are many designs to choose from!

A Relaxing Spa Voucher

Nursing is an incredibly rewarding, however stressful profession. We can say with complete confidence that a spa voucher will hit the mark every time! Allow your nursing colleague or family member the opportunity of letting someone else look after them for a change.

Water Bottle

Another fun but very functional choice of nurse Christmas gift is a water bottle. Support your nurse colleague or family member with their new years health resolutions with a cute water bottle to encourage and remind them to keep their water intake up during shift!

Nurse Bath Duck

Nurses love a long bath to ease tired muscles after a long shift, why not get them a nurse bath duck to keep them company! Alternatively, it can be used as a desk ornament. This quirky little fella not only looks cute but you are supporting the Florence Nightingale Museum charity at the same time!
