Pulsometer Watch

The Scrub 30 Version 2 Pulsometer watch was designed for nurses. The easy-to-read face displays both standard and military hours, day, and date. But more importantly, the 24 hr cycle, called the Quadrants Ring, is broken into 15-second intervals for quick and easy pulse assessment. Count for 15, then multiply by 4! Easy, peasy. 

It has other features too. The watch hands are reflective for higher visibility in dark rooms. This watch is water-resistant. And it is fully customizable. Choose a band color to match your nurse’s scrubs and engrave a message for a keepsake to treasure. 

Mini Mantra Block

The Nurse Mini Mantra print will bring a smile to your nurse’s face and maybe a tear to their eye. The deeply meaningful inscription will remind them why they love nursing on the hard days. And it will bring them pride as they remember why they chose nursing every day, “being a nurse goes far beyond bandages and charting – it’s about loving people through their rawest moments.”

This gift is perfect for the home or office decor. And for a bonus surprise, snag the matching Nurse necklace to be worn wherever they go.

Coloring Book

Coloring books for adults have seen a comeback. Focus plus the repetitive motion of coloring have a majorly cathartic and meditative effect on the mind. If you want to give the gift of stress relief this season, check out the How Nurses Swear Coloring Book. 

This clean book is suitable for any audience. The hilarious non-sweary quotes will make nurses giggle and help them blow off steam. And check out the other versions too: How ICU Nurses Swear, How Pediatric Nurses Swear, and How Psychiatric Nurses Swear.

Scrub Bestie Blanket

For the very best nurse friend, a personalized fleece blanket is a one-of-a-kind gift that they will treasure always. The small lap blanket size might be just right for your night shift bestie who gets cold while charting. Or the large size cozy fleece is ideal for snuggling at home. Either way, this gift will hug your nurse when you aren’t around. And for that reason, this might be the best gift ever.
