The 5 Best Ways to Celebrate Nurses Week in 2023

Apr 05, 2023

Nurses: they’re one of the hardest working individuals and rarely do they get the credit they deserve, which is why National Nurses Week is such an important time during the year to celebrate their many amazing accomplishments and sacrifices.

At Choose-Your-Gift, we have a deep love and appreciation for nurses, which is why we’ve created the ultimate gift guide that you can use to celebrate a nurse that you know – whether that be an employee, a friend, or a family member. 

What is Nurses Week?

National Nurses Week is a week-long celebration that takes place each year on May 6th and runs through May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.

Since its inception in 1994, National Nurses Week has become an international celebration sponsored and promoted by the American Nurses Association as a way to honor the daily contributions made by nurses to and for communities all over the globe.


The Importance of Celebrating Nurses Week

While the rest of us drudge through our 8-hour work day, nurses are often working 12-hour shift three-days in a row! Not only do they have to deal with the stressors that come with taking care of sick patients, but they also have to educate and provide emotional support to them, as well which can take a serious toll on their mental and physical health.

From assisting with critical and life-threatening cases, to working with the elderly and delivering babies, nurses are true heroes with a wide-range of special, compassionate gifts that are unique to their field.

As a way to honor their gifts, we thought we’d create a dedicated gift guide to help employers celebrate their nursing staff for all that they do.

Best Ways to Celebrate Nurses Week

While there are endless gift possibilities for nurses, here are five of our favorite gift and celebration ideas to show the nurse in your life just how important they are!

Organize a Self-Care Day

Nurses are often on their feet all day, so for a more personalized gift, organize a self-care day that lets them know how much you care. Whether it’s a nail appointment, a facial, or a simple movie pass, gifting a self-care day is the perfect, relaxing gift for the nurse in your life.

Showcase Awards that Celebrate Nurses

It’s so important to showcase any nursing awards that honor the work that both individual and nursing teams do! Whether that’s national, local, or regional awards, promoting the outstanding achievements of nurses is a great way to honor your team and recognize their amazing work.

Delivering Personalized Gifts

If you’re going to celebrate each day of National Nurses Week, opting for smaller, less expensive gifts is the way to go! At Choose-Your-Gift, our over 40,000 tier-level gifts come in a wide variety of price ranges, so that you can celebrate all the nurses on your team – not just individual ones.

Choose from kitchen gadgets to beauty and health gifts, to fitness gifts and food options! When it comes to gift ideas for nurses, the limit truly does not exist.

Host a Nurses Celebration Event

The best way to recognize multiple teams of nurses is through a nursing event celebration, where nurses at the hospital, district, or event county can come and network or enjoy hearing each other accolades. Choose-Your-Gift can help you find the perfect take-home gift for every attendee, which offers a more personalized touch.

Provide a Free Lunch Day

The best way to a nurse’s heart is through their stomach! Something as simple as a free lunch or breakfast for the hardworking nurses on your team is the perfect way to show appreciation.
