6. Promote the practice of nursing and pride in your staff with corporate t-shirts. Design shirts with your organization's logo and a recognition sentiment and hand them out to all the nurses on your team. Organize work days when nurses can wear their shirts!

Corporate t-shirts encourage camaraderie and give nurses a lasting token of your appreciation!

8. Steth-o-charms are unique gifts for nurses that provide a public display of your appreciation. These small, colorful charms are displayed on steth-o-scopes and serve as conversation starters with patients. Every time nurses wear a steth-o-scope, they’ll be reminded of your appreciation.

9. If you’re looking for small, low cost gifts for nurses, consider unique badge reels. Nurses are usually required to wear ID cards at all times, and they’re often issued standard badge reels. Brighten their day with a color badge reel or one that’s covered in bling. They’ll smile whenever they use it!

10. Finally, if you want gifts for nurses that will make a lasting impression on your recipient, write a personal handwritten note. Let nurses know what you appreciate about their work and service and how they made a difference on you or your family. Your personal words will be the greatest gift!

Appreciation gifts are most effective when they are personal to the recipient and sincerely given. Regardless of what gifts for nurses you choose, make it special to the recipient with a personal card or the addition of their favorite candy.
