7 Gift Ideas for Nursing Students

gift ideas

Tis’ the season to give back to those you love. Do you have a nursing student in your life who is in need of some holiday joy? These 7 gift ideas for nursing students will get you started on the right path.

1. Comfortable shoes. It’s no secret that nurses spend a considerable amount of time on their feet. To combat the strain of long working hours and unforgiving hospital floors, consider gifting some high quality shoes. Check out this list of the top 10 most comfortable shoes for nurses to point you in the right direction (list of top 9 men’s shoes here).

2. A good book. Nursing school requires a heavy dose of reading and study. Give the nursing student in your life a little breather by gifting him or her some light reading. “Becoming Nursey” is a highly reviewed book by Kati Kleber (of Nurse Eye Roll fame). If you’re unsure what types of books you nursing student likes, consider an amazon gift card.

3. Relaxation. Nursing school is taxing at best. Sometimes all a nursing student needs a little downtime to recharge the batteries. Consider a massage session. Most massage parlors offer gift cards which will allow him or her to pick the best time (perhaps after finals)!

4. A good meal. It’s easy for nurses and nursing students to develop poor eating habits (here’s why). Make your nurse a delicious and nutritional meal for him or her to enjoy after a long day.

5. Something personal. Often it’s the unexpected gifts that make all the difference. Check out this amazing personalized chalkboard of nurse rules from Etsy. The wording and colors are completely customizable so you can make the gift extra special. Etsy has an entire page devoted to gifts for nurses. 

6. Stethoscope. For the practical nursing student, you may want to consider buying a stethoscope in his or her favorite color. 3M™ Littmann® Cardiology III™ Stethoscopes are highly rated.

7. Get random. Check out This site offers nurse-created products that are useful for a nurse’s everyday work life.
