When we are in pain, when we are infirm or when we just need comfort when a loved one is unwell or suffering, a nurse always is there with a helping hand. How are we able to say thank you to them, what kind of gifts for nurses are welcome?




Nurses are special people with a unique calling. More importantly, they are there when we need them most. Taken for granted at times or worse ignored nurses take what they do in their stride. Nurses accept everything that’s thrown at them. Sometimes this results in taking them for granted and even ignoring their needs.   It is what they do. Nurses do their job because they care and love what they do, not for the money.

If a person says: “I’m a doctor”, that doesn’t specify in which specialty he’s working. Duties and responsibilities differ from one specialty to another. The same applies to nurses. Physicians and nurses work in a team. For example, imagine your favorite team. Each player has a specific task but they all work towards one goal. Nurses have a wide range of duties, where administering patients’ medicines and their observation are only a few of them.

A nurse in a children’s ward. A nurse in a hospice dealing with sick and dying patients near the end of their life. Or a dispensary nurse. No matter what kind of nurse a person is, they are all cut from the same cloth. People really need to thank nurses for what they do and finding gifts to say thank you for nurses can be challenging.

Perhaps you have a special nurse in your life, who you wish to make happier. What sorts of gifts for nurses are appropriate and welcome for birthdays and other times of the year?


Here are five simple gifts for nurses that will always go down well.

Affordable, simple with a big variety of designs to choose from and when given, especially by a young patient, the sentiment will be felt each time the mug is used.

Relaxing atmosphere

Nurses often work crazy hours and relaxing atmosphere is essential.  Dealing with things some people cannot even imagine, unwinding in a hot bath can provide it. One can boost this experience with the simple gift of some bathroom soaps, bath salts and bubble bath.  More than that, think in terms of aromatherapy, combine different aromas in different products.
