My work secret santa is a nurse who has a hilarious sense of humour. I don't know her well, just in a work capacity.

Budget is £15. Any ideas?!

I recall a Dr friend of mine had a funny book about bowels that he kept by the toilet! Not sure whether its too obscure/out there when you dont know her very well?

A joke book

Cook book

What area of nursing does she work in? I've seen small pendants with various silver plated organs on them. Again, not for everyone, but a cardic nurse friend has a little heart one.

Considering this year, maybe something non-medical? Candles, bubble bath, nice earrings?

Something like this would be a fab gift: www.nursem.co.uk/products/nursem-caring-hand-cream-75ml
It's an award winning hand cream with a great product ethos too?

Plus a decent slab of chocolate to go with it?!

Or just a good bottle of gin, or whatever her favourite tipple is?

Thanks for the suggestions! I get a bit nervous doing secret santa as I try so hard to get it right grin
I got someone some (very nice) candles one year and they visibly turned their nose up when they opened it sad

Poo book sounds great, I'll have a look! I like the idea of some sort of funny book.

Organ pendant sounds nice but she's in paediatrics- probably can't give her one with a small child on it grin

@HelloMama alcohol is a good shout. Why didn't I think of that! Can't go wrong....(and she definitely loves a drink)

I've found a 'make your own sausages' kit. Could be onto a winner there, sort of thing she would find hilarious I think (But also a fun activity, and edible!)

She is not vegan btw...

For my birthday I was given an excellent mug. It says -
Don't mess with me, I get paid to stab people with sharp objects.
It amuses my patients.

Yes speaking as a nurse I would either go with a sarcastic funny nurse mug or similar.
Or equally what about something just nice, just cos we are nurses doesn't mean we want anything too "nursey".
Usually nice treats are equally appreciated.

Nurse here - the most useful thing I've bought this year was a pair of safety goggles that don't steam up around my mask and actually look like ordinary specs but have a great seal around the eyes and top of the nose. I reckon your friend would love a pair and find them really useful.. I'll find a link.
Obviously it would be great if we didn't have to buy our own PPE but the eye protection that we given at work is woefully inadequate.
