Seven Nursing Gift Exchange Ideas for Thanksgiving

Are you organizing a workplace gift exchange or seeking a special token of thanks for your nursing friend? Keep reading because this article will share seven gift ideas you can exchange this Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving often serves as a poignant reminder for nurses to pause, reflect, and express gratitude. Usually, this gratitude is for themselves and their invaluable contributions to their patients' well-being and the world at large. 

In the spirit of gratitude, giving gifts is a meaningful way of expressing thankfulness to our family, friends, and colleagues for all they have done for us this year.

Thanksgiving Gift Ideas for Nurses

These gift ideas you're about to read will communicate your gratitude to your loved ones and make Thanksgiving feel special for them.

Treat box

Who doesn't love a box full of yummy treats like healthy snacks, fruits, chocolates, drinks, and many other belly goodies? Creating customized treat boxes for your nursing friends full of things they love to eat is thoughtful and heartwarming. A nice cherry on the top will be to add a personalized thank you note to the treat box. 

Bouquet of flowers

You can hardly go wrong with a pretty bouquet of flowers. It's Thanksgiving, and a fresh and lovely bouquet of roses, peonies, daisies, tulips, or any other flowers would be the perfect gift. Use the flowers to express your appreciation to your nursing friend or colleague this season.

Bottle of wine

Turkey Day and wine are undoubtedly a  great combo. Get your nursing friends a bottle or two of their favorite bottles of wine so they can tick that off their shopping list for the holiday. 

Scented candles

Elevate your nursing friend's holiday mood with scents of wood, lemon flower, patchouli, musk, cucumber, and other scented candles. This is a great gift idea to set the holiday mood and help your nursing friend have a relaxing holiday.

Spa and massage ticket

It has been a whole year of working on our feet for very long hours. An all-expense-paid ticket to the spa will be a very lovely gift. Let your nursing friend indulge in manicures, pedicures, and facials, all bills on you. This will help them rejuvenate just before the holidays. 

Food hamper

There's never a bad time to receive a food hamper. On a day like Thanksgiving, when your nursing friend may have to care for more people than usual, it is perfect to give them one. Fill your food hamper with perishable or non-perishable food to help your friend Carter for more people with ease.


When in doubt, go for kitchen wares. Whether it's a set of wine glasses, a large pie tray, or a sturdy casserole dish. Any new kitchen or dining equipment is perfect to send as a Thanksgiving gift to your nursing friend.


This Thanksgiving, go beyond the ordinary to express gratitude to the nurses in your life with any of these thoughtful gift exchange ideas.  This will make Thanksgiving a little brighter for them. For more helpful tips like this, please subscribe to our blog at Natty Nurses.
