Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Nurses
Choosing the best gift for the special nurse in your life
Spring is finally here and Mother’s Day is right around the corner. If the mother in your life is also a nurse, we have the ultimate guide to thoughtful gifts are every price point that are all sure to make her feel special and appreciated. Delivered with breakfast in bed, these gifts will make this Mother’s Day one to remember.
How much coffee does a nurse need?
The answer is more if she is also a mom! In honor of the superpowers caffeine bestows on the special nurse in your life, why not get her a cute mug that highlights her profession? These are easy to find in online boutiques, so you can support independent artists and give an especially unique gift. Check out this cute mug for sale on Etsy, or this one, which can be personalized.
Give her a sparkling home after a long shift
Moms coming home from a long day of work often end up pulling second shift cleaning up after their families. This year for Mother’s Day, why not lighten the load a bit? You can clean the house yourself as a surprise, down to fresh sheets on the bed so she can climb in after a long twelve hours on her feet. If you like the thought but cleaning isn’t your thing, why not hire a professional to do the job? Or you can give a Molly Maid gift certificate and let her choose the perfect day for a clean house.
Make dinner (and make it again and again and again)
Like cleaning, dinner is a chore that never ends. This year you could splurge on a meal kit delivery service, like HelloFresh or Blue Apron, and give the busy nurse in your life healthy options without having to do the work of shopping for ingredients. You can also give a DIY version of a meal service. Offer to shop for and prepare dinner for a week or two – even if you help with cooking often, everyone likes to get a total vacation from chef duty.
Give her some new socks to keep her comfortable on her feet
As any nurse can tell you, compression socks will keep you going for hour after busy hour. With fun patterns to choose from in the Uniform Outlet store, this gift is anything but boring. Pair a set in cheery floral patterns with a springtime bouquet and a card, and your gift will show that you understand how hard she works to take care of her patients and her children.
Pick jewelry that shows you appreciate her work
Diamonds might be a girl’s best friend, but even diamonds mean more when the jewelry shows that you really thought about the recipient. There’s lots of jewelry designed especially for nurses, but this tasteful heartbeat pendant from Zales is guaranteed to be delivered before Mother’s Day, as long as you place your order before Friday, May 4th. The necklace is a lovely reminder of the important work she does as she checks pulses and reads charts.
Gift a kitchen gadget that is great for healthy breakfasts in a hurry
The Vitamix has been known for its quality and efficacy ever since it hit the market, but this space-saving version comes with a 20-oz insulated blending container that doubles as a travel cup, making it the ideal choice for nurses on-the-go. It also has an interchangeable 40-oz prep container so that you can get the professional performance of a full-sized Vitamix blender, handling soups, sauces, veggies and more.
Now that you’ve ordered your perfect gift, relax and enjoy surprising the nurse in your life on May 12th. And to all the nurses and moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day from the team at the Uniform Outlet!
