The Last-Minute Holiday Scrubs Shopping Guide
Christmas and holiday scrubs at The Uniform Outlet
Deck the halls of the hospital! It’s that time of year again, filled with joy and lots of cookies. There’s plenty of stress too though, like battling through long lines of shoppers to get the perfect gift. Even finding a parking spot can be a Christmas nightmare to rival Scrooge’s.
Why not do all your shopping from the couch this year? Everything nurses love is in our online store. Even better, at our prices you can do your holiday shopping and still have a little money left over for hot chocolate. Read on for our list of holiday scrubs recommendations.
We’re dreaming of light fleece warm-up jackets
It’s cold outside and it’s chilly in the hospital too. She’s sure to love the Julia Warm Up Jacket by Vera Bradly, which doesn’t look like your standard medical uniform. It’s embellished with quilted trims and pretty hardware.
The special man in your life will appreciate this stylish jacket by Dickies. Tonal cable routing makes a statement, giving the jacket an athleisure look. The zippered front pocket is a handy addition and a great place to securely stow a cell phone.
And nursing shoes tramping through the snow
A pair of quality shoes will last through the new year, even with all the miles nurses have to walk. We have several popular brands in stock, giving you lots of options in every size.
Cherokee Workwear’s line of leather footwear takes you comfortably through the day and was made specifically for nurses. This pair has a padded foot bed and a white leather exterior that naturally repels stains and spills.
Of course, if you’d prefer an athletic shoe we have those too. Check out our great selection of Reebok shoes, including these trainers in hospital standard white. They make dashing through the snow a little easier.
May your scrubs be merry and bright
It’s not too late to show your holiday spirit in the hospital. Whether it’s Snoopy or Santa a colorful pair of women or men’s scrubs will bring a smile to your patients’ faces. We especially love this festive and adorable scrub top from Zoe+Chloe.
You can choose something seasonal but more multi-purpose as well. A bright red or forest green pair of scrubs subtly reference the holiday, but not destined for storage bin on Boxing Day. This bright red top from Cherokee will stick around to beat the post-Christmas blues.
And all your lab coats be white
A nice lab coat makes a statement gift. Dickies makes a few lab coats that stand out with their signature, elegant silhouette like this one. WonderWink has a line of lab coats made with top tier fabrics, soft to the touch and known for durability. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
If you’re looking for pockets, Cherokee’s modern classic is the way to go. It has two roomy double patch pockets with stitched down instrument holders. Plenty of room for a notebook and stethoscope.
Stocking stuffers for the final touch
Once you’ve piled the presents under the tree, what about those stocking stuffers? Compression socks, under scrubs, or maybe a new MDF LUMiNiX II Diagnostic Penlight all slide in well with an orange and some chocolates.
This is a great place to add in a few little personal touches as well. We like these stethoscope tags available on Etsy, which make a unique addition to the rest of a nurse’s medical gear, and keep stethoscopes from wandering.
Don’t forget about gift certificates!
The best of us sometimes forget to get our holiday gifts in time. No need to panic. The Uniform Outlet offers gift certificates that can be delivered instantly via email. You’ll be able to save Christmas faster than Santa can get down the chimney.
If you’ve got a little more time, don’t forget that every order over $99 ships for free. It’s the best reason to make this Christmas a little more special than usual. After all, the nurse in your life spends all her days giving to others. It’s time for her to get something for herself.
