Editor’s Note: This article is updated annually and has been modified to include 2022 new Nurse Appreciation Day gift and celebration ideas for 2022.


It’s that time of year again—time to show nurses just how much we love and appreciate their hard work. Canada’s National Nursing Week falls from May 9-15, to coincide with the birthday of one of the world’s most famous nurses, Florence Nightingale, who was born on May 12. There are more than 430,000 hard-working regulated nurses across Canada. Show these caring individuals how much you value them with one of these National Nursing Week gifts.


Energize for hours

Nurses work long hours and most of them are spent on their feet, caring for others. That takes a lot of energy. Nurses will love a boost to help them feel refreshed and energized throughout their shift. A vacuum tumbler, imprinted with words of thanks, keeps a drink hot or cold for hours. Fuel nurses up with tasty to-go snacks for when they need a quick burst of energy. Snack mix, pistachios and trail mix are perfect choices.


Help them get out the door

A National Nursing Week gift idea that’s sure to come in handy is a stylish and sturdy tote. Perfect for nurses on the go—whether early in the morning or late at night—a tote bag is a convenient all-in-one place to store their personal items. Toss in a new scrub top, pants and a fun pen to really make a great impression.


Care for the caring

Self-care is especially important in the fast-paced environment of nursing. Help nurses de-stress and enjoy a little “me time” with a self-care kit. Encourage relaxation and self-care with a stress relieving colouring book. Also include a Soothing Stick to help keep their hands soft and some lip balm to keep dry lips at bay.


Boost sleep quality

Quality sleep helps boost heart health, lower stress levels and improve memory. After a hard day (or night) of caring for patients, some good shut-eye is a must. A sleep kit that includes an eye mask, plush blanket and pair of sweatpants will leave a lasting impression. Every time they curl up for some much-needed rest, they’ll be grateful for their sleep-aiding National Nursing Week gifts.


Show personal recognition

A personalized message from the heart is a truly memorable gift. Give each nurse on your team a thank-you card with a handwritten note. A themed notebook or doodle notebook filled with personal messages from fellow staff is another unforgettable gift that will be long-cherished. Every time they read their notes, they’ll be inspired for another great day of helping other people.


Give heartfelt appreciation with National Nursing Week gifts

Nurses save lives, help patients achieve a higher quality of life and bring cheer and comfort to those in need. We owe so much to nurses. With these National Nursing Week gift ideas, your team will feel incredibly appreciated.
