Looking for Creative National Nurses Week Gifts? Try a Spa Day
Roughly 2.6 million nurses will observe National Nurses Week May 6-12. If your facility is looking for a unique way to celebrate National Nurses Week, consider organizing a spa day. After all, what better way is there to recognize nurses' hard work than with the gift of relaxation.
To create a spa day, set up massage stations in a designated area of your facility. Ask local massage students to provide reflexology and massage therapy services for your staff. Likewise, hire a yoga or Pilates instructor to offer some simple stretches and strengthening moves to improve posture. Serve health foods commonly served at spas such as a Mediterranean lunch with tuna salad, tabouleh, fresh fruit and hot tea. Light scented candles or use an herbal air freshener to encourage a soothing mood.
Complete the event with National Nurses Week gifts of scented lotions and bath products formulated to reduce stress. For instance, the Mini Urban Renewal Gift Pack is a luxurious, yet cost effective, National Nurses Week gift. The sinamay fiber gift bag features a skin-enriching vitamin C body lotion, Himalayan blend soaking salts, Echinacea and tea tree oil and an herbal sanitizing spray. Nurses also can curl up with a cup of antioxidant-rich green tea. You can personalize the gift bag with your logo imprinted on a white card.
Help nurses get much needed R&R at home with this E-Z Comfort Set. The set contains a pouch imprinted with your logo, an eye mask and foam earplugs.
It's perfect for unwinding at home after a long shift as well as for use on airplanes and in hotel rooms. If you're giving this gift, consider setting up a table with comfort foods such as milk and cookies. Play gentle music to encourage a truly relaxing experience.
Another way to up the wow factor of your National Nurses Week gifts is to include a prize drawing for a spa basket. The Tranquil Delights Spa Basket includes Cru de Provence body wash, body lotion, botanical soap, lavender tub teas, body salts and a bamboo bath brush. Your logo appears on the lovely bottles and bath items. The gift is packaged in a lovely wicker basket that nurses can re-use when they go on picnics or to store blankets or magazines.
