25 top gifts for nurses for Christmas

I’m practical but I’m also girly so here you go, my favorite picks.

Nurse love their Danskos because of the arch support, and rocker motion.

But let’s be honest, Danskos show off your style. These multi-colored pair are bound to make you feel happy when you look down during the day. Compression socks may help ward off those unsightly spider veins, and  promote lower leg circulation.

25 Top Gifts to Buy a Nurse for Christmas: SELF CARE

Nurses need to meal prep to help avoid all the goodies in the break room. These have Bento like compartments and can go straight into the microwave in the nurses lounge. A Fitbit helps keep you motivated to move. Compare your steps per day with other nurses. Felt like you walked 5 miles today? You probably did.

25 Top Gifts to Buy a Nurse for Christmas: RELAXATION

Release your inner child with these coloring books for adults. Last summer I bought 5 Secret Garden books because they are unique and beautiful. I tried to save them for Christmas, but gave them away early to my sister, daughter, and nieces. Then I discovered the Anatomy Coloring Book! It’s so cool, and you learn anatomy as you color. Gel pens or soft core pencils? Your preference, I like pencils.

25 Top Gifts to Buy a Nurse for Christmas: WORK ESSENTIALS

Every nurse needs angled bandage scissors, but pink handled scissors make them a gift.  Every nurse needs a stethoscope but every nurse wants a Littman stethoscope. The 3M Littmann Lightweight II S.E. 28 inch is a classic favorite, and the Littmann Cardiology is top of the line. I wish someone had given me one of these clipboards with tons of references when I started nursing. The Badge Buddy Gift Set will be a new nurse’s best friend.

25 Top Gifts to Buy a Nurse for Christmas: PAMPER ME….

Pamper me…I love beauty products. For wearing on days off, Flowerbomb blends notes of white floral, patchouli, and green. Kat Von D’s lipsticks are legendary long wearing, and she put together a color combination that’s hard to beat.

tip: Line lips and fill in lips with liner (preps lips for lipstick). Apply lipstick and dust lips with finishing powder. Brush off excess powder, re apply lipstick. Lasts for hours. Naked2 eyeshadow palette, I notice it’s gone up in price since I got mine a couple of years ago…but the pigment is top quality, and it makes a gift any girl can use.
