Nurse Appreciation Week

May 7, 2020 | By: The Darling Dish

Nurses everywhere are hard at work at keeping us safe and healthy. If you ask us, there's no better time to celebrate Nurse Appreciation Week, May 6-12. If you have a friend or family member who is a nurse, here are a few ideas to make sure they know that they are appreciated and loved!

Care Package

After long hour shifts and stressful situations, nurses should come home to some relaxation time and self-care. Here are some things that are perfect to add to a quick and easy care package:

  • Bath bombs
  • Homemade citrus face masks 
  • Bag of Darling clementines for quick snacks
  • Gift card for online groceries or meal delivery apps
  • Mask Headbands to help those sore spots behind the ear where the face masks put pressure
  • Compression calf sleeves for sore legs

Personalized Food Delivery

You can help out by performing a neighborly act. With LGS's list of recipes, cooking a meal for a friend/family member is a good way to provide some support. Here are some recipes that we found would be great after a long shift.

If you're a novice chef, this recipe is a simple meal to prepare and show your thanks for the support nurses provide. Dropping off a dinner like this, they'll be able to fuel up for the day ahead and be able to spend their leisure time on something besides cooking. 


Healthy Salmon with Darling Clementines® Ginger Glaze

A nice warm meal is a great "welcome home"gift. The vitamin C-rich Darling Clementines® and spicy ginger pair to give the fish rich flavor. This is another simple-to-make recipe that is easy to reheat and will be sure to pass along the message of appreciation!
