3 Gifts To Give Healthcare Employees for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Celebrated every October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign that raises awareness about breast cancer and its impact on patients and their loved ones. Since its inception in 1985, healthcare workers and the public have come together to share their stories, donate to breast cancer research, and participate in events that rally behind the community. 

Many people wear shades of pink in October to support the cause. Others wear the signature pink ribbon created by Evelyn Lauder, breast cancer survivor and daughter-in-law of Estee Lauder. This simple act goes a long way in raising awareness about breast cancer and the importance of frequent screenings. At SpecialistID, we offer lanyards, badge reels, and pin buddy badges that can help you join the conversation. 

It’s time to think pink: Here are three gifts to give healthcare employees for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

1. Heart-Shaped Badge Reel 

Doctors, nurses, and all healthcare employees enjoy wearing badge reels on the job. Badge reels are one of our most popular ID solutions because they are easily attached to lapels, belts, and bags. Our Heart-Shaped Badge Reel combines fashion with function, featuring a pink ribbon heart design. This heart visibly shows your support of the cause and keeps your tools firmly in place. 

In terms of function, this product includes a reinforced vinyl strap that can slide through any type of credential, including slot-punched ID cards. It also has a retractable cord that makes swiping and scanning through checkpoints a breeze. Plus, it is rated for 100,000 pulls, making it a heavy-duty option for keeping your belongings safe. We love this badge reel because it encourages your patients and coworkers to be proactive about their health and learn more about breast cancer.

2. Pin Buddy Badge 

You may have heard about our badge buddies, but have you seen our Pin Buddy Badge Holders? Used with your existing badge buddy, our pin buddy badge holders are a great way to show off your enamel pins underneath your credentials. So if you have a pink ribbon pin, now’s your chance to wear it proudly. All you have to do is to place your pin buddy underneath your ID badge and badge buddy. It hands further than your badge buddy, making it a clean and simple way to personalize your ID solution. 

Healthcare employees can customize their pin buddy badge with all sorts of pins. We also offer horizontal and vertical pin buddy badges, so no matter your ID’s orientation, they can represent Breast Cancer Awareness Month in style.

3. Pink Breakaway Lanyard

Gift your friends in healthcare with our Pink Breakaway Lanyard. Its silky pink material is printed with the Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon, making it a great piece for individuals who want to make a statement. It is comfortable to wear and allows doctors and nurses to remain hands-free while caring for their patients. Additionally, there is no minimum order on this product, making it a great gift for both smaller and larger teams.
