WITH FINALS APPROACHING, the nursing student you know needs you now more than ever (hardly exaggerating). The holidays are a great time to show the student nurse in your life your love and appreciation, especially with functional and creative gifts! Let us help you get an A+ in gift-giving this holiday season with our top 10 gift ideas for the student nurse you love! Check out our list below:

1. Badge and clip holders

The student nurse in your life may or may not be in the hospital yet,
but will surely be there soon enough. A customized badge is a perfect
way to get the student excited (and much more fashionable) about
nursing. Scrubs can get a little boring, but badges can add that extra
something to the look that keeps the job exciting. We love this sweet
badge from the Etsy shop

2. Aromatherapy

Essential oils are a great way to promote natural health for the
stressed, tired, restless or moody student nurse (because let’s face it,
we would have anxiety too). Add a few drops to a room diffuser, create a
room spray or simply instruct the student to dabble a bit on his or her
wrists and feet.

3. Hand soap and cream

Nurses and students all have one thing in common: the risk of dry hands.
Nursing students have it even worse, constantly washing their hands,
writing notes, etc. Show care for the student nurse in your life by
purchasing a nice, natural, hand cream and soap that the student can
take with him or her anywhere!

4. Desk organization tools

Staying organization as a student is so important to academic success
(and mental sanity), so why not do it in style? The student nurse you
know will surely appreciate a functional and stylish desk organization
set. A file organizer, pen holder, and stapler will do!
5. Portable phone charger
There’s nothing worse than a dead phone. While this is a little
dramatic, most college students may agree with the statement. A portable
phone charger that they can take to classes and work is a perfect
addition to a purse or backpack! Check out this one from

6. A new clipboard

Nurses use clipboards everyday! The nursing student you know is sure to
love a new, cool and convenient clipboard. This one from
has a compartment in the back for extra pens, files and other

7. Nursing books

No, we are certainly not talking about a nursing textbook. Do not get
them a textbook. They might throw it at you. Instead, get them books
they might actually use. From motivational books, to first year stories,
there are so many to choose from. Check out this useful list from

8. Coffee… everything!

From mugs, machines, to actual coffee itself, coffee is a nursing
student’s better half sometimes. There are a ton of nursing mugs that
the nursing student you appreciate can sip his or her extra dark roast
espresso from! This
“I Heart Nursing” coffee mug from Zazzle is
seriously awesome.

9. Customized tech stuff

Every nursing student could use some updated and cool tech gear! With
all those assignments on the computer, why not give them some extra hard
drive (nursing style, of course) with this adorable
nursing USB drive
from! Or get him or her a new pair of headphones that
they’ll always be wearing.

10. Pedicure basket

Whether in the classroom or in the hospital, student nurses are always
on their feet! Give them a mini at-home spa treatment basket by putting
together a pedicure set. The nursing student you love will surely use a
basket filled with things such as lotions, nail kits, polishes and bath
