If you’re struggling to choose a graduation gift for a newly qualified nurse then this list is just the antidote you need.

Engraved Fob Watch with Gift Box


Nurses aren’t usually allowed to wear anything below their elbows such as jewellery or wrist watches to help prevent any bacteria or viruses. So you’ll often see many nurses wearing fob watches, these clip on to the their pocket and hang upside down so the wearer can see the time. We wouldn’t recommend buying a really expensive Fob watch for a nurse as they are easily lost or damaged, this Posh Latitude design is beautiful for a nursing graduation gift and can be engraved with their name to add some individuality to their uniform.

Nurse Graduation Keyring

This ‘she believed she could so she did’ key chain makes a wonderful graduation gift for any newly qualified nurse. It includes an antique silver stethoscope charm, a birthstone of your choice. The keyring can be personalised with your recipients initial and graduation year for a thoughtful present.

Before Patients, After Patients Mug and Glass Set


Never accidentally drink wine or gin before a shift again with this before and after mug. This humorous gift will go down a storm with any nurse who loves their morning coffee as much as their evening tipple. The mug is a standard 325ml size and the glass is 450ml, making it suitable for both spirits or wine. Both are dishwasher safe and printed with high quality ceramic ink.

Personalised Stethoscope ID Tag

stethoscope tag gift for nurses

In a building full of stethoscopes, an ID tag is essential so this personalised copped ID tag engraved with the name or message of your choice will be a helpful tool. It slides over the earpiece to attach and can be squeezed closed so it won’t fall off.
