Nurse Teeny’s Favorite Things: 2013 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again! Time for your favorite nurse or nursing student to a) Finally have a bit of a break from school and/or b) Learn what it means to spend the most wonderful time of the year at work. 😉

Since I haven’t had much time to do anything BUT study for the past few months, I’m dedicating this year’s holiday gift guide to goodies of the non-academic variety…

First up, this awesome mug I found on Amazon and promptly purchased for my work Secret Santa gift. It’s so awesome I want one for myself (ahem, cough, cough):

Continuing along the caffeinated vein (heh), a hand-stamped coffee spoon from MilkandHoneyLuxuries over at Etsy.

Other Etsy finds this year:

If you’re a practical type, I’d suggest checking out a website like Allheart.com and springing for supplies your nurse will need on the job or at clinical. As an oncology nurse, I love the Share the Care watch…so much so that when I wore the first one out in nursing school, I went out and bought another one!

I’ve also become a big fan of the subscription idea. In addition to magazines, there are a whole number of items that can be ordered for delivery over several months, making them the gifts that keep on giving. I’ve read mixed reviews about Birchbox, which seems to have started this whole craze over the past couple years. My personal wish list includes Barkbox (for the poor neglected pups), Naturebox (which appears to have some very yummy snacks), and Ipsy (because I am 33 years old and still don’t really dress or wear make-up like a grown woman…this is my SOS call). A couple Christmases ago, I bought my sister a subscription to Adagio Teas, which she seemed to like. Other ideas to consider include gifting a subscription to a local CSA (community-supported agriculture) for ongoing deliveries of fresh produce or to a favorite coffee company.

As someone who appreciates free time now more than ever, I’d also suggest checking out your local daily deal websites for “experience gifts” (wine tasting, special meals, local tours, sports events, etc.) It’s a great way to learn more about the place where you live, and –  trust me on this – the nurse in your life will appreciate the gift of time with you.

Of course, a hot stone massage wouldn’t hurt either. 😉

May your holidays be merry and bright! I look forward to another year to come … hopefully this time with more consistent posting!

I was neither paid nor perked to suggest any of the items listed above. No affiliate links are present in this post – I’m simply sharing the neat stuff that can be gifted to the nurse in your life…
