Thank You Gifts for Nurses and Teacher Appreciation Week


Every May, we show some well-deserved appreciation for two under-appreciated and overlook professions. Yes, every May we celebrate teachers and nurses, with a special collection of thank you gifts especially for Nurse’s Day and Teacher Appreciation Week!

How to Celebrate Nurse’s Day

Every May, people around the world celebrate Nurse’s Day to acknowledge the daily contributions that these professionals serve to our worldwide community. Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, was born on May 12, so we typically celebrate Nurse’s Day on the anniversary of her birth because of her role in the profession.

Why is Nurse’s Day so important? Simple.

Nurses allow hospitals and doctor’s offices to function. Yet, most nurses don’t get the credit they deserve in spite of all of their hard work.

Do you have a nurse in your life?

This Nurses’ Day, show all the nurses in your life just how much you appreciate their constant dedication to the job with a delicious gift from Edible Arrangements®.
