Giving Tuesday Suggestions for Travel Nurses!
It’s Giving Tuesday, and as we head into the holiday season, many nurses across the country are feeling emotionally exhausted and burnt out. This year has been tough for everyone, but for healthcare workers especially, it has been brutal. They have been on the frontlines caring for patients since the beginning of the pandemic and often receive little or no thanks for their efforts. Now more than ever, people are looking for ways to give back to nurses, and a gift card this holiday season can be a thoughtful gift to show your appreciation. Travel Nurses are always on the move so a gift card is perfect as they can be delivered via phone or email. We categorized some gift cards for travel nurses that we think most would appreciate very much!

Gift Cards for Travel
It’s no secret that nurses often get into travel nursing because they like to travel and want to explore new places. However, we all know that traveling can be expensive, so anything that helps make travel cheaper is a plus. Hotel chains and websites like Hotels.com offer gift cards that are perfect if travelers need a short-term place to stay in their new location, or if they’re planning on taking overnight trips during their assignment. Airbnb is also an option and is great for travel pairs or trios who want to plan a vacation together. Gift cards for Uber or Lyft are nice for helping travelers get around town or to/from the airport. Gas gift cards are essential for any traveler who has to drive to their new location or float between different hospitals. In addition, U-Haul also offers gift certificates that can help with moving expenses.
Gift Cards for Food
Gift cards that can be used for a nice meal out or groceries are always appreciated by travelers. Restaurant chains like Applebees, Olive Garden, and The Cheesecake Factory have locations nationwide, so it would be easy for travel nurses to use those gift cards wherever they go. Fast-food and takeout places are also good ideas for a quick meal on the go. Moreover, travel nurses who worked a long day might just want to get something delivered for dinner. That means gift cards for food delivery services like Uber Eats, Grubhub, and Doordash would never go to waste. Also, gift cards for coffee places like Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts can help travel nurses get the caffeine they need to stay energized!
Gift Cards for Shopping
There’s no doubt that travel nurses will have to make a few purchases when they arrive at their new destination, and helping them with those expenses can go a long way. It’s hard to go wrong with an Amazon gift card where travel nurses can find virtually anything they need or want. Warehouse stores like Target and Walmart are also useful for travelers who need to stock up on kitchen supplies, furniture, and other home goods. For clothing and outdoor recreation gear, retailers like Dick’s Sporting Goods and REI are good for workout clothes and can help spark a traveler’s sense of adventure! Furthermore, Whistle Workwear is perfect for any traveler who needs to get a new pair of scrubs!
Gift Cards for Entertainment
Many travel nurses pay for subscription services for entertainment, but with so many options these days, the cost can add up quickly. If the traveler is into movies and TV, a Netflix or Hulu subscription would be perfect for them. Now that movie theaters are open again, gift cards for Regal Cinemas or AMC Theaters can help pay for a movie night. Furthermore, there’s nothing like escaping into a good book, and travel nurses who are also bookworms would be thrilled with a Barnes and Noble gift card or an Amazon Audible subscription. For music lovers, an Apple Music or Spotify subscription would be right up their alley!
