Father’s day is right around the corner (Sunday, June 19th for those of you who are procrastinating) and we’ve done the hard work for you by finding some of the most unique, thoughtful, and useful gifts for any nurse or medical professional that also goes by the title “dad.” We respect and value diversity and work to incorporate inclusivity in our mission, so you will find our gift list to be mostly gender neutral. Beyond Father’s Day, our gift ideas are perfect for anyone experiencing a birthday or other special occasion this summer. That being said, we understand if you want to keep this list handy for any other holidays (erm, Christmas). Don’t worry, we won’t tell.
Scrubs. Scrubs are a timeless gift for any nurse. Pay close attention to the color and style they wear; joggers, straight-legged, v-neck tops, elastic or drawstring waistband? Are they a brand snob or prefer something low-key? If you aren’t sure of their size, a gift card to a local scrub store is just as good.
Sustainable jewelry. Old-school nurses rely on wristwatches as part of their everyday uniform. For the environmentalist nurse, this waste-free watch is created entirely from sustainable materials.
Stay organized. This multi-pocket utility waist pack keeps any healthcare worker organized. Scissors, saline flushes, tape, and more are secured but also easily accessible without taking up room in precious scrub pockets.
Gift baskets and boxes. These aren’t your typical fruit boxes or overdone gift baskets. Man Crates offer one-of-a-kind gift kits to match any hobby or interest. Jerky grams, knife-making kits, and barware crates help your nurse celebrate off the clock.
Personalized tumblers. Every nurse needs to stay hydrated (or caffeinated). A personalized Yeti tumbler keeps their favorite beverage hot or cold through their shift.
Sentimental gifts. For nurses and allied health professionals who are new dads, thoughtful gifts that commemorate the most special day of their lives through framed prints, paintings, cards, and mugs mean the most.
Customized clothing. Customized gifts show you put in the effort to recognize someone. These gender neutral socks are perfect for anyone who wears shoes and combines a useful and funny gift without breaking the bank. We recommend using a slightly unflattering photo for extra laughs.
Grooming essentials. Looking your best and smelling great is for anyone and everyone. Beard oils, specialty soaps, and grooming tools never go out of style. Almost everyone enjoys pampering, so a gift certificate to a local spa for a massage or haircut is perfect for any nurse.
Event tickets. Summer is often teeming with outdoor activities, concerts, and festivals. Surveys show that over 60% of Americans prefer experience gifts over material gifts. Considering you’ll be joining in on the fun, this type of gift is beneficial for everyone and allows you to make priceless memories. Eventbrite makes it easy to search for events in your area such as comedy shows, wine tastings, and musical events.
Grilling season. ‘Dad’ is often synonymous with the word ‘grill.’ A complete BBQ grill kit helps dad perfect their medium-rare burgers while subscription programs like Wild Fork Foods ship premium portions of steaks, seafood, pork, and more.
Outdoor activities. Father’s day coincides with the beginning of summer which means long days and late nights. Baseball season is in full force as are camping, hiking, and beach days. A pool lounge float makes for a relaxing afternoon while a hydration backpack keeps dad cool on the trails.
Landscaping and gardening. Nothing gives dad more pleasure than a manicured lawn. A cordless blower and trimmer get the job done fast so the family can enjoy some downtime on their lush turf with a competitive game of cornhole.
Advantis Medical wishes our nurses and allied health professionals who celebrate it a Happy Father’s Day. Whether you are working with our dedicated recruiters to find the perfect travel nursing job or taking the season off to recharge, we hope you have a safe and relaxing summer.
