Posted on December 8, 2017   |   by   |   Job Seekers, Well Being, Work Environment

Finding the perfect holiday gift for the healthcare providers in your life can be difficult. We’re here to help with gift ideas for the NPs, PAs, nurses, and physicians who support you all throughout the year.

Melnic loves helping NPs and PAs year round. This time of year, we like to have some fun! We have some ideas to help you with your holiday gift giving.

Whether you’re participating in a holiday gift exchange, shopping for a Secret Santa, or buying for the whole department, we have you covered. These five unique and affordable gift ideas are guaranteed to please. Plus, they’re all available online – no trip to the mall required!

1. For Your Favorite Fashionista

A sparkly stethoscope charm or gift certificate from CharMED is the perfect gift for your colleague who wears her scrubs with style. Choose from a variety of colors and styles, priced at about $11 each.

2. For Those With Healing Hands

You know your patients are in good hands when you entrust them to your nursing colleagues. So, show your appreciation with a healing Hand Care Duo from Thistle Farms. This set of liquid hand soap and moisturizing lotion comes in three soothing fragrances, all priced at $26.00. Your purchase also supports the organization’s mission to “heal, empower, and employ” women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction.

3. For Anyone Who Could Use Some Support

When you give your colleagues a pair of these high-tech compression socks from ProCompression, they’ll know they have your support! Nurse practitioners have told us that these socks really work to fight muscle soreness and fatigue. A little on the pricey side, these socks range from $17.00 to $50.00. But they’re made in the USA and available in a wide variety of styles and colors. Sign up on the company’s Facebook page to receive a discount code.

4. For the Young at Heart

Who wouldn’t love a personalized mailbox from the Popcorn Factory, full of treats guaranteed to bring the holiday cheer? This little snack pack is a delight for anyone who has an appetite for fun, for just $20.00.

5. For Everyone in the Unit

Spread the holiday joy around the unit with festive badge reels from the Avery and Lola Etsy shop. You can’t go wrong with adorable snowmen, Christmas trees, candy canes or “mouse ears.” Plus, for less than $10 each, you can get a different one for everyone on your list. And, you’ll have enough money left to clip on a gift card to the local coffee shop!

Wait! Did You Buy Something for Yourself Too?

You deserve a little something for your hard work and dedication. This season, we hope you feel the same warmth and care that you bring to your patients all year long.
