Nurses put in long hours, caring for people who are sick, injured, and just plain not feeling their best. As they retire, they deserve to celebrate this big occasion with a party or at least a gift for their friends and family to show their appreciation. But what are some good gift ideas for a retiring nurse? They definitely need some pampering, fun, rest and relaxation.
We know just the thing.
Here are some ideas to get you started…

Nurses spend a lot of time on their feet, which means that they would really enjoy a foot spa with vibration to help their feet relax and recuperate. Consider making them some salt and sugar scrubs to go with their pedis.
