PRACTICAL GIFTS FOR MALE NURSES TO USE EVERY DAY
It's no secret that nursing is the kind of demanding job that can fire up one's pedometer. Just to put things in perspective, studies have shown that nurses walk around five miles per shift, and getting those steps in every week adds up. So much so that they basically complete a marathon every five shifts. Talk about endurance! That's why the right pair of shoes is not a fad for a nurse. It's a must-have. Comfortable, durable, breathable shoes ensure that even the longer shifts are more enjoyable. So, a cool and cozy pair of sneakers is an excellent gift for a male nurse. We have some great suggestions of nursing shoes:
12. The ASICS Men's Gel-Contend Seven
A high-quality running shoe perfect for nurses who spend hours on their feet. The wearer will be surprised by how comfortable they are. The cushioning provides excellent shock absorption; the mesh upper improves airflow ensuring maximum breathability, and don't even get us started on the wide variety of colors: from classic black to vibrant neon and everything else in between!
13. The Brooks Men Revel 5
This is another good gift option. Ask any nurse, and they'll tell you all the same: these shoes are as stylish as they are high-performance. They're the tip-top blend of comfort, lightness, and durability. The male nurse you're shopping for is bound to love them.
14. Nike Air Zoom Pulse Triple Black
These are easily one of the top choices of nursing shoes for male nurses. The fact that nurses were directly involved in engineering these shoes also helps. They're durable and will last through long shifts on both dry and slippery surfaces. They're easy to clean and showcase a sleek design like no other. In short, they're among the best nursing gifts for male nurses.
“I have enough scrubs!” is a sentence you'll probably never hear uttered by a nurse. They work long shifts, and things can quickly get messy or uncomfortable in an environment like the hospital. So, a pair of high-quality scrubs will be a hit with your favorite male nurse. Choose a set of scrubs designed for comfort and maximum durability, but make sure it doesn't tread behind in the styling department either. Male nurses deserve to save lives in style!
16. Badge Reels
Badge reels are one of those essentials that every nurse loves because they allow for a bit of personalization of an otherwise dull work uniform. You'll strike gold if you gift a set of nurse tag retractable clips in different styles.

This is a solid choice for a gift: it's packed full of features and is incredibly durable. It can store more than 300 songs for those car rides home when there's nothing good on the radio. Another thing we love about it is its four-day battery life, so the person you're gifting it to can go multiple shifts before having to recharge. Not to mention that they get access to 24/7 heart rate monitoring, activity, steps, sleep stages, calories burned, and floors climbed. Monitoring your health is the best way to stay on top of your health!
27. Massage Gun
Nursing takes a toll on one's body. Every shift involves many hours spent on your feet rushing from one patient's bedside to another's. You may be required to move heavy medical equipment or lift patients to help them get more comfortable. That's why a massage gun can quickly become a Registered Nurse's instant best friend. It can help alleviate muscle pain and release tension. To make sure they make the best out of your gift, go for a qualitative model, well-designed functionally and esthetically.
