There are some gifts that are a little more universal. For example, any nurse would likely appreciate a thoughtful card and a nice double walled vacuum sealed mug. I mean, who doesn’t drink water? And even if they already have one, it’s always nice to have one you can keep at home and one you can take on the go. I have 3, myself. One of the office, one for the car, and one at home.
If finding gifts for nurses leaves you scratching your head every time, this is the gift list for you. No tacky mugs, no tween cartoon “theme” memorabilia – this list is comprised of the unabashedly stylish, the unquestionably pragmatic, and some surprisingly affordable kinds of gifts that you can not only be proud to give, but that you might actually be happy to receive as well.

Sentimental retirement gifts. Scrapbooks, photo albums and collections of notes from customers, clients or colleagues are often the most meaningful retirement gifts. While sentimental gifts take some effort to compile, they are likely to be cherished by the retiree. "Gift recipients of all kinds love sentimental gifts, ones that remind them of the gift giver and the relationship the gift giver has with the recipient," says Jeff Galak, an associate professor of marketing at Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business in Pittsburgh. "Givers should focus on gifts that exemplify the relationship they had and will hopefully continue to have with the person who is retiring. Research shows that this will not only be well liked by the recipient, but could also strengthen the relationship between gift giver and gift recipient."

The holidays are coming! Chances are you need a gift idea for a colleague or work gift exchange, or there’s a special nurse in your life who needs a treat! Below are my holiday gift ideas for nurses. Whether it’s for a sister, friend, or colleague, the nurse in your life deserves something special! Here’s what may be on his or her wish list this year.
Nursing scrubs that get softer with every wash? I dare you to find a nurse who doesn't dream of that. Scrubs are a wardrobe staple for nurses—they can never have too many! But these nursing scrubs are unparalleled in their comfort (crucial for 18 hour shifts), durability (can last over 100 washes without fraying or fading), and fit (purposeful tailoring is flattering and gives unrestricted movement). Add an extra special touch with personalized embroidery in fade-resistant thread!   ">
Experience retirement gifts. Retirees already have a lifetime of accumulated possessions, but almost everyone appreciates a fun new experience. "The research suggests that experiential gifts are better than material gifts," Galak says. "That is, rather than give a gold watch, give a ticket to a concert. Even better would be to give two tickets, and go with the recipient. Not only will the retiree appreciate the experience itself, but they will have a chance to form a stronger bond with the gift giver." ">
Does your preceptor enjoy coffee? One thing that always makes going to work something to look forward to is when I buy myself a gourmet coffee drink. Right after college I was still trying to grapple with the whole getting-up-at-5am- thing, so I decided to buy myself a delicious and expensive coffee drink each day on my way to work. A $5 mocha-chip Frappuccino was all it took for me to be excited to get out of bed and head to work. As I got older and tried to instill the habit of living on a “budget”, I realized that maybe I shouldn’t do this every day…so I started making drip coffee. Oh what a step down! So needless to say, a coffee gift card would be a perfect gift for preceptors who enjoy coffee.
Inject some fun into those vital tea and coffee breaks with a novelty nurse mug. Everybody knows nurses are amazing, saintly superheroes who work extra-long shifts and unsociable hours. Besides featuring funny phrases to cause a stir, these nurse mugs provide decent-sized vessels for daily doses of caffeine – essential fuel for keeping up superhuman standards of patient care!
Earlier this year, Nurse Blake and Nurse.org started the ‘Nurses Support Their Young’ movement to end the phrase and culture of ‘nurses eat their young.’ Together, the campaign has gained international attention and is already creating positive change within the nursing community. We hope to create a culture based on kindness, civility, and respect for many nursing generations to come. If you’d like to show your support for nurses, hoodies, mugs, posters, and pillows are available here. 100% of profit is donated to the University Nurse Camp for high school students! While you’re at it - sign the pledge, here!

Add a bow or ribbon for further decorating! 😉
I'd make either bags of Chex Mix or Hidden Valley Ranch oyster crackers-also wonderful if you have any diabetics in the group! My children's teachers loved getting Chex Mix from them each Christmas! Even little jars or cups (try Good Will for unusual ones!) filled with hard candy or fudge would be fun! Tie them with a fancy ribbon and bow and you're good to go!
