What are the Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Nurses?

With Valentine’s Day nearing as it does every year, I compiled a list of some of the best Valentine’s Day gift ideas for nurses. I did my best to make a generic list that both male and female nurses will love. I’m hoping to, at least, inspire some ideas in those of you who are clueless (trust me, I’ve been there).

When it comes to gifts for nurses or nursing students, I think you could get them anything and they would be happy. It is just nice to feel loved and appreciated by your coworkers, family and friends. However, I wanted to get together a list of things that I would want as a nurse on the floor or working.

These gifts are things that nurses might use every day, but they don’t want to buy themselves. Or, their current stuff is all worn-out. Whatever the case, let’s get into it!

Best Valentine’s Day Gift for a Nurse

In my opinion, the best Valentine’s Day Gift for a nurse is one you give them from the heart. While there are a lot of V-Day gift options that I’m going to give you, just remember that you know the person best. Get them something that you know they will love.

Affordable Gift Ideas

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!

Special Nurse Gift Ideas

These are some options for that someone special in your life. While they might be a bit more expensive, it’s worth it to put that smile on your favorite nurses face!

Figs (Scrubs)


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. 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!


Dolan Scrubs

I recently took a look at these new scrubs from Dolan. They were actually incredibly impressive and one of our favorites to date. They are comparable to FIGS, however at a much better price point and quality standpoint.


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:

  • Timeless Jewelry: The Hawaiian Silver Jewelry sterling silver 1mm box chain is a classic piece that should not be missing from your collection. Simple and refined, this necklace can be worn on its own or paired with your favorite charm or pendant.

  • Exquisite Materials: Our 1mm box chain is made of 92.5% sterling silver. This chain is reliable and long-lasting, as well as safe to wear straight on the skin.

  • Unique Gift: Get one of our box silver chain for yourself or as a lovely gift for any special person in your life. This unisex nickel free long necklace is a staple piece in anyone’s collection so you can help your family and friends enjoy high-end jewelry with their everyday outfits.

And the pendant we used was this one:

Miss Pink RN Nurse Gifts Medical Caduceus Keychain Women Men Jewelry for Graduation Brithday Christmas
  • Medical caduceus gift – RN
  • High polished stainless steel key ring, antique silver plated RN charm, eco-friendly made, with nickle and lead safe
  • Key ring measures 1 1/5″ in diameter, RN measures 4/5″
  • Makes a perfect gift idea for birthday, christmas, graduation or just because
  • Comes with a velvet bag for easy gift-giving

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.
