How to Celebrate Public Service Recognition Week

Apr 17, 2023

Public service recognition week is the perfect time to let the selfless person in your life know that you care. Public service workers are often a bit more overworked than the average 9-5er and don’t get the typical corporate pay, which is why setting aside a little extra time or money for that personalized gift is a fun way to celebrate these essential worker bees.

This year, public service recognition week falls between May 7th and May 13th, so we recommend adding a little springtime/summer merriment into your gift ideas. Whether that be with an outside celebration, a full spring clean, or a revitalizing spa day, we’re here for the all the blooming celebrations and gift ideas for our public service workers.

At Choose-Your-Gift, there are few people we love more than our public service workers, which is why we’ve put together an entire public service worker gift guide that you can use this May when trying to find the perfect gift for that awesome someone.

For education workers, we recommend travel or leisure gifts. As most teachers have the summers off, they can use these gifts to see the world and escape for a bit. The options are also endless with a travel gift - choose from great, simple gifts like a brand-new suitcase to bigger gifts like a resort trip. Either way, this is the perfect gift for the teacher or educator in your life.

The Best Gifts for Healthcare Workers

While we should celebrate our healthcare workers every day, taking the time to do it on public service worker week is also a wonderful way to recognize these amazing individuals! Those in the healthcare field work long hours and don’t nearly get the recognition they deserve for the stressful and emotional draining work they do.

The Best Gifts for Safety Workers

Safety workers like police officers, firefighters, and emergency transport workers are often put into dangerous and life-threatening situation, which is why celebrating them each and everyday is a must. However, on public service workers day, taking the time to purchase a gift that shows how much you care is an awesome way to give back to our trusted community heroes.
