Nurses Week has always been acknowledged and celebrated in the promotional products and branding industry. In the last few years, that importance has only continued to grow. Especially with the onset of the worldwide pandemic, we demanded so much from our nurses and that demand is unfortunately not over.
To show our appreciation, the GACO team has compiled some of our favorite products. Below you will find these products broken down into three distinct groups under each section are ideas that align with that grouping.
- Making Work Easier
- Fuel Fighters
- Self-Care Essentials
If you’re interested in any of these items or would like to see another project take flight – get in touch – we can’t wait to work with you!
Making Work Easier
Nurses already work long, grueling hours. Here are a few products that are sure to make any nurses’ day easier.
This pen is exclusive to Prime Line. It includes the fun and useful Mop Toppers for easy whiteboard erasing or device cleaning, a stylus, a stethoscope-looking pen clip, and of course a click-action ballpoint pen.
Blue Light Blocking Glasses
In our very digital world, nurses are increasingly on devices to track vitals. These blue light blocking glasses by HandStands help relieve the pressure and eye stress that comes from staring at a monitor. The stylish design fits most and includes a storage case for durable protection.
This vest by Charles River Apparel is sure to make any nurses’ life just a little bit easier. It offers two deep patch pockets for storing valuables – it looks and functions similarly to nurses’ scrubs. There are two layers of ultimate comfort and comes in a very inclusive size range for both men and women.
Being hangry or dehydrated just isn’t an option for nurses. They are on their feet, running around saving lives. To keep them well fueled we provided a few options below.
The importance of drinking water is not lost on nurses! Everyone will love staying hydrated both during work and in their free time. This water bottle by ets express is beautiful, highly functional, and available in 6 colors.
It offers over 20 oz of hydration, stainless steel double-walled insulation, a threaded copper insulated lid, and a convenient carrying handle.
The Arctic Zone Lunch Box is available through PCNA. It features an insulated, zippered, main compartment that’s roomy enough for your food containers. The front slash pocket is the perfect place to keep your extra mask or a quick snack. The interior of the lunch bag features high-density thermal insulation and a leakproof lining with Microban® to help protect against bacterial odors and stains. Plus, the exterior materials are made from recycled plastic bottles, so you’re kind of saving the Earth too!
The Everywhere Bowls
These ultimate on-the-go bowls by Silipint are available in three different sizes and so many fun colors and patterns. With a secure lid, this unbreakable, 100% food-safe silicone bowl will be the envy of everyone around the hospital. Easy to clean, dishwasher, freezer, and microwave safe. These bowls can handle it all – you can even bake in them.
If there is anything good that came out of the pandemic, it’s that we’ve all learned the importance of taking care of ourselves. Nurses deserve a gift that reminds them just how important their well-being means to all of us!
We love this kit by Numo! Included is a neck wrap, weighted eye mask, and a note all packaged in a matching ripstop goodie bag. The neck wrap and weighted eye mask are filled with fragrance-free lentils. It’s also important to mention if you’re only interested in one of the items in the kit, that’s also an option!
Stone rollers have been all the rage with self-care mavens! They are known to decrease under-eye circles, tighten pores, and stimulate collagen. These stone rollers, available in Jade + Gold, Pink + Rose Gold, or White + Gold, made by Numo are no exception and would make a great self-care themed gift for our favorite front-line workers.
This cute trendy 6” x 6” whitewashed wood framed letter board from SnugZ is a perfect gift for nurses. They can put funny or inspirational messages that will brighten their spirits on those tough days. Durable white plastic letters are included, sealed in a cotton bag for safekeeping.
