My readers will know that I just recently graduated from nursing school. This means I was in position to think about what I would have appreciated for a gift, but also what I gave my friends for graduation.
A classic but much appreciated gift is a stethoscope. It is pricey but a quality gift that will give the user years of service. I would recommend a Littman Cardiac II or III.
They can be customized or engraved.
Plus they are so pretty.
Jewelry is always a wonderful gift for a celebration. I love this piece from Etsy.
All new nurses need a great coffee mug to help them get through those night shifts they are about to be working. Might as well make it personalized. 🙂 Find this one here.
So, what did I gift my two nursing besties?!?
You might remember these beauties from my birthday party and my pinning.
I created little gift bags with a few things I thought would make the first days of nursing easier.
A pretty pair of earrings to boost confidence, a water bottle to remind them to stay hydrated, an amazing little Kate Spade thin wallet which is perfect size to slip in your scrub pocket, and a candle to unwind with after a long day.
I hope this helps you find some ideas to gift your graduate or for someone who just passed their boards. Let me know if you have any other great ideas!
