What’s better than a thoughtful Nurses Week gift? A thoughtful Nurses Week from someone who knows you well! That’s why this year, we want to try out something different. Every day we’re going to give out different nurse gifts… to nurses of your choice!
Let us surprise your favourite colleague. Your nurse bestie. Or just any fellow nurse who could do with a bit of comfort or encouragement. Just check in with our daily posts on Facebook, Insta, Twitter or LinkedIn to see what gifts we’re sending out that day, and tell us who we should pick and why!
What if your favorite nurse is… you?
Self-care is important, and right now every nurse deserves a nice present. So don’t be shy if our daily gift is something you like… just nominate yourself! We get it, and we’ll pick several lucky winners each day.
We have our eyes on a range of Nurses Week gifts, and we’re thinking either fun — or practical. So one day it might be a Nurse Coloring Book for Adults, a Giant Microbe plushie, or an “It’s Fine” badge reel — another day something properly useful like a Breeze Report Book, a fancy hand cream, or a good pen light. All you need to do is show up in our replies on Facebook, Insta, Twitter, LinkedIn — or even right here on our blog, where we will update this post every day.
DAY 1 — May 6: We’ll kick off the week with a rude little gift: the snarky Nurse Adult Coloring Book by Morgana Skye! Who should we send a copy to? Nominate yourself, or one of your colleagues or nurse friends in the comments or on our social media posts!
DAY 2 — May 7: We’ll be giving away 5 autographed copies of the cartoons book “Nurstoons: The Art of Nursing 2” by Carl Elbing. Who should we send one to and why? Nominate yourself or a nurse friend or colleague! 🤗
DAY 3 — May 8: Today we’re making several gifts of the badge reel that said it all, when it comes to this past year, featuring the iconic “It’s Fine” dumpster fire design.😁 If you prefer a kinder, gentler look, we can also gift you a cute Baby Yoda badge reel instead.😊 They’re both made by the same maker, Crystal Coffman — and she’s an ICU nurse herself! Nominate yourself or a nurse friend or colleague (and don’t forget to mention which one you’d like).
DAY 4 — May 9: After three days of fun mode we’re getting serious and professional with gold-standard TribeRN nurse tools which come with a lifetime guarantee. You can express a preference for one of these two gifts:
1️⃣ The single best-reviewed nursing penlight on Amazon, which is truly built to last and comes with interchangeable bright white light and soft warm light bulbs.
2️⃣ The BadgeGuru Set of 26 badge-sized reference cards, printed on waterproof PVC and densely packed with vital information.
Both especially useful for new nurses — but not only for them of course! We’ll be giving out several of these, so nominate yourself or your favorite nurse, and let us know which of the two gifts it should be.
DAY 5 — May 10: Today we’re giving out several gift boxes full of adorable GIANTmicrobes plushies! They’re blood cells.. but a million times their actual size, and cuddly. Cute, and you can use them to cheer up and educate your patients! Tell us why you would love one for yourself or for your favorite colleague — like every day, we will pick several winners from across our social media accounts! 😊 ❤️
DAY 6 — May 11: We love to support a small, nurse-run business! That’s why we are giving away Breeze Report Books from Moxie PRN. How they work: you record patient information with sharpie pens, and erase them with alcohol swabs — every day again. No need to mess about with bulky clipboards or paper — you can feel extra organized with these stylish report books that come in three versions: one for MedSurg and PCU nurses; one for Labor and Delivery nurses; and one for CNAs and PCTs.
Do you know one of those who deserves some recognition and a useful Nurses Week gift? Or would you like to nominate yourself? Let us know in the replies here or on our social media posts, because we will give away a few of these!
DAY 7 — May 12: Every day this week we’ve been selecting different gifts for you. But today it’s your turn! What did we forget? What would YOU consider the best nurse gift?
If we select you as one of our winning entries today, we will order anything you’d like on Amazon (of up to $25) for your favorite nurse! And if the gift you’re thinking of is something that’s not practical for us to order online (like a bottle of wine for example), we’ll even send you the money via Paypal or Zelle instead.
So today, it’s in your hands! Tell us what gift we should send today to who — and as always, it’s also okay if your favorite nurse is… you. 💝
We support Support Our Scrubs!
Just over a year ago, the tireless mom of a Texas nurse saw Covid-19 spread across the US — and decided to do something. Rather than feed her anxieties, Crystella McIvor would feed nurses! She founded Support Our Scrubs, and that Nurses Week we joined her effort — and we are doing so again this year!
With our $1,000 donation, Crystella’s team will be bringing nurses at Children’s Medical Center Dallas a treat of Starbucks coffees and specially designed “Essential” t-shirts. They will use our contribution to give out “Essential” t-shirts as well to healthcare workers who attend the free yoga classes Support Our Scrubs organizes with Sarah Shiplett Yoga in Allen, TX.
Not from around there? Don’t worry — you can still enjoy the online library they created with on-demand yoga classes!
