Amazon Gift Guide for Nursing Students

When you’re in nursing school, it seems like your whole life revolves around school. There is a lot to it from clinicals to classes.  In this post, I compiled a list of 12 gift ideas that are perfect for nursing students. Most of the gifts are related to self-care, rather than the typical outwardly nurse gifts (such as stethoscope jewelry or crewnecks that say future nurse). Everything below can be found on Amazon and is linked. I hope that you can find something in this Amazon gift guide for nursing students either for yourself or for a nursing student in your life!

Amazon Gift Guide for Nursing Students

1. Laptop Riser

As a nursing student, you often spend lots of time on the computer working through modules, watching videos, or studying. A laptop riser is helpful and prevents you from straining your neck constantly looking down. It’s a small luxury and adds an aesthetic touch to your study space. It makes a great gift for a nursing student.


A tote is essential for every nursing student for clinicals. You often need to bring lots of different things to clinical such as your laptop, notebook, paperwork, stethoscope, pen light, lunch, and water while going to clinical. I love the BAGSMART tote and it was perfect for my needs in clinical. I have a full packing list of what I brought to clinical that can be found here. It’s a great, high-quality option for a clinical bag and it makes the perfect gift for a nursing student!

3. Hydroflask Tumbler

It can be hard to remember to drink water during a busy clinical shift. This water tumbler can make drinking water 10x better. It’s designed after the popular Stanley tumblers, but this one doesn’t leak. It still has all the best features such as a handle, being able to fit in a cup holder, and double-walled insulation that keeps drinks cold for hours. Plus, it comes in a few different colors and is available on Amazon.

4. Stethoscope Case

In nursing school, you are hauling your stethoscope around from place to place between clinical sites and lab. A case will help protect a stethoscope and make it last longer. While not completely necessary, it’s a little luxury that is worth the investment. It’s a great gift for any nursing student.

5. Acrylic Dry Erase Board

A dry-erase board is helpful during school to help keep track of everything nursing school-related. There is a lot to keep track of notes and things to do such as tests, classes, clinicals, and study sessions. If you are gifting to a nursing student who could use some help with organization, or loves to plan and is a visual person, this is the perfect gift.

6. Apple Airpods

The Apple Airpods are so helpful for nursing school. They are easy to pop in your ears and go for a walk while listening to a lecture, or YouTube video explaining what you’re learning. They are really a great investment that you can use for years after nursing school ends.

7. Lap Desk

I love a lap desk for when you don’t feel like sitting at a desk or table. These lap desks are helpful if you are in nursing school and feel like you are always studying. You can take it to the couch or in your bed to use for your laptop or take notes. They make studying much more comfortable and give you a change in environment.

8. Hatch Alarm Clock

The Hatch Alarm Clock is a trendy 3-in-1 alarm clock, white noise machine, and sun lamp. This alarm clock simulates natural sunlight by gradually lightening to help gradually and naturally wake you up. It’s a more peaceful experience than the iPhone alarm blaring to wake you up at 5:00 am.

9. First Aid Beauty Skincare Set

Between night clinicals, the stress of school, and long hours of studying, your skin can get a little dull in nursing school. If you are gifting to someone who loves skincare or self-care, a skincare set is perfect. I love First Aid Beauty Skincare. This set includes the KP Bump Eraser Scrub, Facial Radiance Pads, Pure Skin Face Cleanser, Ultra Repair Firming Collagen Cream, and Ultra Repair Cream. It’s perfect for head-to-toe (including lotion to moisturize your hands because they can get SO dry when you are constantly using the hospital hand sanitizer).

10. Stethoscope

This is one of those gifts that is more on the nose for nursing students. While they probably already have a stethoscope since you need one while in nursing school, a new stethoscope (especially if they are close to graduating) is always nice! I would love a cute new stethoscope, but it’s one of those things you can’t justify buying if you already have one that works well since they can be a bit spendy.

11. Lounge Hoodie

For wearing to class, on your way to clinical, while studying, or while out and about, a hoodie to lounge in would make a great gift for a nursing student! This hoodie specifically is a dupe for the Lululemon Scuba Hoodie. For the nursing student who basically lives in athleisure (outside of their scrubs), this would make a great gift!

12. The Five Minute Journal

The Five Minute Journal is a journal that is meant to help guide you through self-reflection, gratitude, and manifestation. Each page has a prompt that is geared to promote confidence and positive manifestation. The pages take at least five minutes to complete. The journal has enough pages that it would take 6 months to complete if doing one page a day. Nursing and nursing school can take a mental toll on you. This journal can help combat some of the burden and can be a healthy outlet for when feeling stressed.
