As in, people that aren't nurses, the people you don't work with?
My mom always does, has since I became an RN 8 years ago. She usually sends me a card.
This year, I didn't get one in the mail. I noticed that I didn't, but didn't think TOO much of it (other than noticing, since she generally doesn't miss it!). We had a family cookout for Mother's Day. For *girls* in my family, there are me, my sister, and my sister-in-law (my brother's wife). I'm the odd man out (or woman out, I guess) because I have no kids. My mom comes out later in the afternoon with a little card and gift for the girls. I was surprised when she handed one to me, too; I know she always gets Mother's Day gifts for my sis and SIL, but why for me? OH, yea...it was my Nurses' Day card. :heartbeat Our gifts were small, these little notepads, really cute. It always makes me feel so good that she thinks of that, no one else in my life outside of work acknowledges the day. It was also nice that she waited, granted, I know I'm an adult and it doesn't bother me when people get gifts and I don't (I'm not a kid that'll throw a tantrum, LOL) but it also feels nice to be included, since I was the only non-mom in attendance that day.
Does anyone in your life do something for you?
