If there is an underrated fact that the public has learned over the past few years, it is that health care professionals are heroes—nurses especially. Nurses are our first line of contact in doctor's offices and hospitals, and they are often responsible for how comfortable we feel during times of crisis.

They work extra long shifts, spend time away from family, and are faced with tedious tasks that require dedicated attention.

To celebrate and honor the nurses in your life for all of their hard work, diligence and sacrifice, here are some gift ideas to bestow upon them and show them love.
