    Gift certificates from Amazon always seem to work well. They can order anything they want with it online. People usually love it.

    A gift card or cash is always a good option.

    For my Peds clinical instructor, my group pitched in for a big candle from White Barn Candle Co. For my OB instructor, I'm thinking we may get a case of Pepsi (because she's addicted to the stuff!) and then something else.....

    We got our instuctor a gift certificate for a day of beauty at the local day spa, includes: 1 hour massage, pedicure, manicure, haircut and style, facial and they said they will serve her lunch and a glass of champagne. Still trying to decide on OB instuctor.

    Hey, never thought of getting any instructor anything. Thanks for giving me the idea, I think I'll get my instructor something too.

    When I was in school, we got our instructor a foot massager, various items from bath and body works, and a gift certificate to a restaurant. Needless to say, she was a very good instructor and well deserved everything she got.

    We're giving our instructor the gift of peace.... in other words, our absence! :chuckle

    I forgot to tell yall that he's a 65 year old man so the spa is probably a BAD idea! Thanks for all of yall's input-yall had some good ideas. We found a pocket watch for, like, $70-split 10 ways that we think he will like. By chance, though do yall know of any websites with nursing poems or anything? Every one I have seen is for a woman(those poor male nurses are a minority!) Anyhoo-thanks again!

    When we graduated we gave each instructor a key ring with a leather tag that had a brass plate on it, on the plate was each instructor's name and RN,BSN or RN,MSN. I ran into one of my instructors the other day and 6 years after graduation she was still carrying the key ring in her hand.
