So showing our support to nurses and other healthcare workers is essential, especially as the holidays are approaching. Shooting them a thank you text, donating money to organizations that support healthcare workers, buying the nurses in your life food, and sending them cards are all great ways to lift their spirits. But... a gift is always appreciated too.
