4. Thank You Gift Cards
Gift cards are always a great way to say thank you and I appreciate all the help. With so many amazing stores to choose from including Starbucks, The Cheesecake Factory, modern & trendy clothing stores such as Express, massage & spa facilities, Amazon.com and a plethora of movie theaters there’s a gift card for almost everyone.
And when it comes to nurses any of the above gift cards would make a great gift and put a smile on their face. Choose a gift card that’s personal and has something they’d really enjoy to do nearby such as grabbing a coffee, eating at their favorite restaurant or buying themselves a nice gift at one of their top clothing stores.
You don’t have to go expensive on the gift cards either ($25 is plenty) as most nurses appreciate the small gifts that show you care and appreciate them without making them feel guilty because of something expensive.
5. Golden State Fruit Pacific Coast Classic Dried Fruit Tray Gift
Golden State Fruit offers a best selling Pacific Coast Classic Dried Fruit Tray that’s filled with a variety of delicious dried fruits and nuts.
This gift set contains a number of delectable foods including roasted salted Almonds, roasted salted pistachios (in the shell), dates, prunes, dried apricots, dried peaches, dried pears, dried plums and dried apples.
The gift tray is large enough to feed several nurses, so it’s a great option for the entire shift and because they’re dried fruits they don’t need to be refrigerated to stay fresh. They can be consumed over several days, which makes it an ideal snack for hard working nurses.
When using food as a gift
Delicious snacks make an excellent gift for nurses as these hard working professionals can spend 12 hours or more providing care to patients and families on any given day.
A nice food based gift can definitely make work a bit less stressful and give nurses something to snack on while they are trudging through their day, however when buying food as a gift be sure that you purchase food/snacks that are properly sealed and air tight as nurses and healthcare centers have to be very cautious about baked goods or those made by unfamiliar individuals, despite your best intentions.
