National Nurses Week is upon us and if you’re still scratching your head on how to show your appreciation for that special nurse in your life, the ThriveAP Team has got you covered. From personalized to practical, these gifts ideas are sure to reflect your recognition and be put to good use (no stereotypical key chains here).
Consider the personalized stethoscope name ring the charm bracelet nurses can wear on the job. Handmade with pure aluminum, the name ring is one of the easiest to add to most styles of stethoscopes. Charm options range from crosses to hearts, sea turtles, owls and more, and pose no danger of getting caught or pulled off thanks to an added split ring. Both the ring and charms are hypoallergenic and rust and tarnish proof.
If wine drinking doesn’t make you feel classy enough, drinking it out of this monogrammed stethoscope wine glass definitely will. The perfect gift for any nurse or nursing student who loves some post-shift vino, the glass is decorated with quality vinyl in the color of your choice and features a heart shaped stethoscope with a monogram in the center. Extra room along the back allows for an added phrase, if desired.
Busy nurses rarely have time for drinking water during the hustle and bustle of caring for patients and tending to a plethora of other responsibilities. Why not help the beloved nurse in your life get in all 64 ounces each day with a fun, personalized water bottle?
