Holiday Gift Ideas for Nursing Students

Do you have a busy and hardworking nursing student on your holiday list? Then it is time to start shopping for the perfect gift that they will love. Whether your nursing student is only just starting off and working on their bachelors degree or they are older and getting ready to complete one of the top DNP executive leadership programs online or doctor of nurse practitioner programs from Bradley University, the following gifts are sure to please.

Massage Therapy Gift Card

Let’s face it: nursing school is really difficult and very stressful. Students have to spend long hours working on assignments, studying, and getting to know what it is like to really work in a clinical setting. Because this education is so stressful, why not get your favorite nursing student a gift card to one of the best local spas? They can receive healing massage therapy while enjoying a bit of much-needed downtime and rejuvenating their body and mind, so they will definitely appreciate this gift.

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee

Your nursing student probably has long nights and early mornings, and once they start working, they could end up working the night shift at a hospital or the morning shift at a doctor’s office. So why not get them a gift that will keep them going, and that they will be able to use even after they graduate college? A great option is a gift basket loaded with coffee mugs, travel coffee mugs, and coffee. This is sure to be a hit, especially if your nursing student is a big coffee drinker and relies on it to get much-needed energy every day.

A Pair of Really Comfortable Shoes

Nursing is a tough gig, and these hard workers stand on their feet for extended periods of time. Nursing students may also find themselves standing for a long time or walking long distances across campus. So, again, you can give your nursing student a gift that they can use both while they are in school and after they graduate, and you can do that by getting them a pair of super comfortable shoes. Look for shoes that are designed with nurses in mind, as they will help reduce back and foot pain, assist with balance, reduce discomfort and stress throughout the body, and even help to prevent spinal and back problems.

A Stethoscope

Another fun gift that will help your nursing student in class and at work is a colorful stethoscope, or a standard looking stethoscope if that is what you think they would prefer instead. The great thing about this gift is that, not only is it useful in your nursing student’s day-to-day life, but it will also remind them of you whenever they wear it and use it.

These are just a few of the many fun gift ideas that you can think about if you are ready to start shopping for a special nursing student in your life. Once you decide upon the right gift, you can rest assured that it will be received with enthusiasm.
