Gourmet Coffee Box

Working in a delivery room can be exhausting. Taking care of the newborns, keeping a watchful eye on the new mothers, and so much more, takes a lot out of a nurse! And let’s not even get started on births that take thirty-six and a half hours for the baby to be born (sorry mom).

Hospitals are sparsely decorated. There might be a painting or two throughout the floor. Maybe some potted plants, but that’s usually about it. So after a day of looking at barely anything, your nurse will want to come home to a nicely decorated place This figurine is the perfect decor piece for them!

Simple, not flashy, and sure to spruce up any space. A nice gift for the nurse just starting out or the one retiring.

What is one of the most important things you need as a nurse? Your ID badge! With its many uses throughout your workday, it’s a vital part of your job.

Losing that ID badge would be the hospital equivalent of losing your homework when it’s due or forgetting your wallet at home- It would be disastrous! Never lose your ID badge again with this handy retractable button that will clip onto your uniform and stay with you throughout the day!

Rayon Metallic Paisley Flower Garden Two-Sided Reversible Scarf

Is it just me or are hospitals always really cold, even in the winter? Nurses can only wear so many layers under their uniforms. And I haven’t seen too many nurses wear a hoodie over their uniform.

It’s cold, it’s drafty, and their choices for layering are limited. What’s the perfect gift to give them to stay comfortable? A beautiful scarf in vibrant color! Sure to keep them comfortable and also brighten the mood of anyone who sees it!

Anything can happen during childbirth. Especially with at-home deliveries, you need to be prepared for anything and everything. Dad passes out, you’ll need smelling salts. Mom might need an extra pillow to help keep her propped up.

You might need a snack or coffee to keep you going. Well with this bag, you can fit anything and everything you might need for home deliveries in it! With the extra space to hold water bottles and a loop for your pen, you’ll be prepared for anything!

Inspirational Fun Push Socks

Nurses need comfortable footwear to get them through their day. If any part of your footwear is uncomfortable, your feet will be in a lot of pain by the end of the day! And honestly, most of us probably wear socks more than anything else because we want to keep our feet clean and warm. So these comfortable socks will be perfect for the nurse in your life.

This journal gives the gift of memory to your favorite delivery nurse. Whether it’s keeping track of every baby they helped deliver or things they learned along the way, they will always have the memories stored away safely!

L&D Nurse Buttons Pins

As a society, we love to find ways to express ourselves. Bumper stickers. Novelty t-shirts. These items and many more are used to help express ourselves and the things we love. Some people even show off their careers through these forms of self-expression!

So for the nurse in your life who isn’t going to walk around in her scrubs all day long these pins are the perfect way to express her career in a subtle way that can be put anywhere.

Tea Gift Set

Not everyone enjoys coffee. In fact, some people avoid it because of the high caffeine count (I avoid it because it tastes like sludge). In a delivery room, all nerves are on edge and tensions are high, especially during high-risk births.

And during a long delivery, with all those factors in mind, you don’t need to add caffeine jitters to the mix! So for the labor nurse who needs a low dose of energy, this tea set is perfect for that!

Labor & Delivery Nurse Appreciation Sherpa Wrap Throw

Delivery nurses who make house calls can have a harder time than delivery nurses who work in hospitals. Unlike hospital nurses, they have limited resources, and limited staffing, and they have to make sure they’re prepared for anything.

Bath Bombs Gift Set

At the end of a long day of deliveries, your delivery nurse is going to be tired and sore. She’s going to want to come home, prop her feet up, and enjoy the silence. Maybe even enjoy some wine and a good book.

What else will help her relax? A nice warm bath filled with bath bombs sure to ease her sore body. Pair them with the spa basket mentioned earlier and she is sure to feel relaxed in no time!

Natural Canvas Tote Bag

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy tells us it’s important to always have a towel. Towels can be very handy., but when you’re a nurse you need a lot more than a towel to help you out!

You might need smelling salts to wake the new father up, an extra blanket because the mother ripped the other one in half, aspirin for your headache… the list goes on and on. With this handy tote bag, you’ll be prepared for any and all situations!
