Why We Gift Wednesday (Thank Your Nurse Edition)

Welcome to Why We Gift Wednesday! Each week, we celebrate one of the thousands of reasons that we truly love giving. Whether it’s honoring the relationships that we have, feeling grateful for an occasion or a special time of year, or relishing life’s simple joys, Why We Gift Wednesday is all about giving and generosity – the expression of appreciation for life’s many happy moments. This Sunday May 6th is National Nurses Day. If you’ve ever had a surgery or have had a loved one staying in the hospital for an extended period of time, you really get a sense of the big picture – the sacrifice, the selflessness and the dedication of nurses going above and beyond to work for the health of their patients. And even if you’ve only had to get your blood drawn or your blood pressure taken, the grumpy old man in the room next door who’s yelling at his nurse may be indicator enough that nurses deal with a lot, every single day. People who are sick, in pain, angry, confused, scared… in the most altruistic way, nurses everywhere turn their hearts toward those who need loving care when it matters most. Have you taken the time to thank the nurses for caring for you or a loved one when they needed it? A simple gesture of thanks goes a long way! Here at GiftTree we’ve got a collection of gifts, flowers and gift baskets that would be absolutely perfect for sending to the staff break room at your local hospital, or to the nurses at your family doctor’s office.       Comment Below Have...
