Celebrate Nurses Day 5/12

May is officially here and springtime is in full swing all across the country. That means we are quickly approaching an important holiday in the healthcare world: International Nurses Day.

What is Nurses Day?

During the entire month of May, we have the opportunity to bring attention to certified nurses everywhere and show appreciation for their contribution to our healthcare system. These essential workers play a crucial part in the world but their hard work is often forgotten or taken for granted. National Nurses Day, and National Nurses Week, allow us to shift our attention to these well-deserving workers and show our gratitude for their hard work and dedication. The date of May 12th was chosen as it is the birthday of Florence Nightingale, a pioneer in modern medicine.

Crush Your Office Party with These Secret Santa Gift Ideas

The Christmas season is here and it is time to celebrate! There are so many different ways to celebrate this holiday season. One of the ways your workplace may celebrate is by doing a secret Santa. The idea behind secret Santa is to get a coworker a present without he/her knowing who the present is from. You can make the gift personal or you can get a generic present for the recipient. Either way, it is a secret!

There are different ways to approach giving a present to your coworker. You can:

  • Spend within a certain dollar amount
  • Give a gag gift
  • Give a thoughtful present

Gifts Under $20

Most offices that participate in secret Santa will set a dollar amount to the present. Setting a dollar amount will give all of your co-workers a guideline of what they should spend. There are so many different present ideas when it is under $20! If you are wanting to stick with a practical route you could give them a basket with some kitchen gadgets like an oven mitt, reusable straws, or coasters. However, if you want to get more specific and give them a great present, that is easy to do!

50th Birthday Gift Ideas

When I was growing up, it was a ~thing for adults to hate their birthdays. They’d make a big deal about NOT wanting to celebrate their birthdays (honestly, a bigger deal than just celebrating would be). Women, in particular, would play this game of pretending they were turning 30 over and over again. 

In the fateful words of renowned artist, SmashMouth, “The years start comin’ and they don’t stop comin’.” I understand that birthdays can feel like a thing that happens to you, and the culture of beauty and health standards isn’t always kind to the aging process. But it always made me mad. 

Birthdays are so much fun! We are living longer (and better) than our ancestors, and each year provides triumphant growth. Why can’t we honor and celebrate birthdays the way they were intended? ESPECIALLY when it’s a milestone birthday like 50. That’s one we can’t just forget (looking at you, mom).

Gifting a hat to your loved one will show how much you want to be safe when doing what they love.
  • Gloves: If the weather is turning cold or there is a chance for rain or snow, you want to ensure your hands stay warm and dry when outside.
