I want to buy gifts for the ER staff from BH. I was an ER nurse and don't want to give the typical gifts of a bag or a mug. There are male and female staff members and we are including nursing and non nursing staff. I have been wracking my brain. Ideas???

Booze. Lots of it.


For real, maybe some coffee house gift cards?

(I know GOOD coffee in an ER is like gold)

Anti stress items
coffee gift cards

If your BH a doc or in a supervisor position then maybe cater in a meal for the staff or set up a table of gifts in the breakroom.

I have a staff of 14 mostly 20-something kids. I'm giving them all a gift bag of a 'dinner-on-me': I bought jars of Trader Joe's pasta sauce, a package of TJ's spaghetti and boxes of Jello (because everyone loves jello )


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Whoa.... Good ideas, but putting them together blows my mind, Moo.

Super small town so no coffee houses.

Maybe anti stress gift baskets?

Movie passes, Target gift cards, or insulated tumblers with lids and straws. Seriously love the tumblers and have gotten so many people hooked. They are the most amazing thing ever

Gift cards are great when not knowing what to give, imo.

Tervis tumblers are the best, and you can find them lots of places. I'd get them with lids and fill them with Christmas-colored M&Ms :)

I like the tumblers filled with m&ms idea. And BH just mentioned that someone at work said they would like personalized pens because they are always stealing each other's pens. I will do some research on best pens I can get personalized.
