Plants for Nurses: Questions & Answers

Plants Express The Right Sentiment For Nurses Week/Day


We celebrate National Nurses Week every year from May 6th to 12th, which is on the founder of modern nursing Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Its purpose is to honor the significant contributions that nurses make to society and to our lives. While no nurse gift could equal the sacrifice nurses make, a great place to start is by giving Nurses Week gifts that show how much we appreciate all their hard work. For thank you gifts for nurses, nothing is as perfectly suited as plants as the most meaningful nurse appreciation gifts. When you give the plants in our nurse gift collection, you’re giving a nurse a present as beautiful as it is practical. Plants also have myriad health benefits, including purifying the air and reducing stress that make them ideal for the workplace and great Nurses Week gift ideas too.


It shouldn’t take a lot of effort to find a nurse gift, even for someone so deserving as a nurse. Nothing conveys thanks, friendship, and affection as the Peace Lily. Not only is it a beautiful sight wherever they put it, it’s also well-known for its air-purifying and mood enhancing abilities. In fact, its iconic white flowers are a certified peace symbol. Since it’s easy to care for, it’s all a busy person could hope for. Another plant that’s functional as it is fun is the Ponytail Palm. While its quirky looks will be a bright spot in their day, its low maintenance needs make it a popular starter plant. It’s the nurse gift that’s sure to keep on giving.
