Affordable, yet meaningful all in one package! Everyone loves a deal, especially us nurses! These are some affordable deals for under $20 that are perfect Valentine’s Day gifts for nurses.
What nurse doesn’t love a good spa day? Relaxing, refreshing and quiet is a combination all nurses dream about.
Taking care of yourself is so important in regards to mental health, dealing with stress and anxiety and promoting the best patient care we can.
A great gift to help facilitate relaxation is a gift certificate or spa day gift. A great affordable option is a pre-packaged “spa-in-a-box” that will be sure to put a smile on any nurse’s face!
We are always carrying a bunch of stuff around that we use everyday; pens, extra pens, sharpies, extra sharpies, tape, flushes, and so many more supplies that accidentally come home with us. A great, affordable gift can be something to carry all of this stuff in!
We really liked these (maybe filled with some candy):
If you’ve ever been on a hospital floor and seen a nurse’s station it would seem quite unassuming on the outside. But, you can be that we have a hundred of our favorite cups, mugs and glasses sitting behind the station filled with enough caffeine to feed a cafeteria.
Some of our favorites included:
A nurse is only as good as their shoes. Well, just kidding, but you get what we’re saying. Shoes cannot be valued in a nurse’s arsenal. They literally run the show when it comes to a nurse’s day.
Comfort, support and easy to clean are three things that come to mind when someone mentions “Crocs”. These are not for everyone as far as style, but we highly recommend these shoes for anyone who can tolerate the style!
Here are some of our other favorite styles:
These are lined with fur – super, super warm!
These are a super fun, easy gift for anyone in the medical field, especially nurses! We have a full post on badge clips/reels.

For That Special Nurse
These are some options for that someone special in your life. Whether it’s a beloved coworker or the love of your life these Valentine’s Day Gifts will be sure to put a smile on any nurse’s face.
If you’ve been a hospital recently, you’ve most likely seen this logo on someone’s scrubs. These are the ever-so-famous “Instagram grown” scrub brand “Figs”. These are premium scrubs that are on the pricey side, but are very very good scrubs. Here is a link to their website, and even their Star Wars branded scrubs. These scrubs are not only great gifts for female nurses, but male nurses as well. They’re becoming more and more popular among male and female nurses, making Figs’ Scrubs a perfect Valentine’s Gift for any nurse!
Stethoscopes are one of a nurse’s most important tools. They get lost, stolen or broken and are one of those things that nurse’s don’t necessarily always want to keep “repurchasing”. Here are a few options at some different price points that are sure to be a great gift.
Jewelry is an awesome gift to say to someone how much they mean to you. It typically has a stigma around it that says it has to be expensive. Well we are here to tell you different.
We pieced together a “DIY” affordable necklace from Amazon, for men and women nurses. All-in it is a total of about $30 and really sends a meaningful message.
You can interchange the parts, but the chain we used was this one:
And the pendant we used was this one:
The pendant linked uses the “RN” initials, but there are several other initials that you can purchase including; DNP, MSN, RT, NP, LPN, FNP, etc.
You can also make some of your own designs using a kit like this combined with your own chain.
Nursing Shoes (Dansko)
These are some of the most “worn” shoes in healthcare, especially for female nurses and OR staff. These shoes are highly regarded in the healthcare community. They can be a bit on the pricey side, however you cannot go wrong with this purchase. Dansko’s will make any nurse’s Valentine’s Day a special one to remember!
