There are 16 soaps there. You could split them into 4 - each with 2 white and 2 purple and either wrap them in a face cloth or tissue paper, OR create 8 gifts - 1 of each colour, and your money goes further.
They make lovely little gifts without costing an arm-and-a-leg.
We have to remember that cheap is a relative term. We don't know what Elaine considers inexpensive and her mother considers cheap.
She maybe spending $5 and she may be spending $25.
It might be 20 Ringgits and she may be spending 100 Ringgits.
I still think it is nice because I bake for my dad and moms doctors offices, but I will write a card to the specific doctor or nurse and give the baked item to them. That way, they can take it home or share. It is up to them.
I think it is wonderful. That you remember your nurses with a little gift. I am sure that they appreciate it, too.
Nursing is such a hard, but rewarding profession. Your gift. No matter how small. May be just the pick me up that the nurse needed that day. I usually bake cookies and write thank you notes to my parents doctors and their office.
Believe me, they appreciate being appreciated. They aren't upset at the cost.
something that is thoughtful and took some thought, something personal that will mean something to the person you are giving to; sometimes something as simple as your time will mean all the world of difference and can be the greatest gift in the world

if the right kind of gift and love and thought which I do for my wife. I get much more enjoyment in seeing her loving reaction than I do when receiving one myself. Don't get me wrong as I do love gifts too I just really enjoy doing / giving things unto her.
The last thing I need is cheap trinkets. If you must get them anything, how about a nice card (as mentioned below) or a day of kindness and gratitude towards them. Not even sure why you get all the nurses birthday gifts....

I have a tight budget when it comes to getting gifts. Because there are so many nurses to shop for. I normally get the nurses in the dialysis center I go to birthday and Christmas gifts. Because there are so many of them, I can't afford to get pricey gifts for everyone.
I do gift better gifts for those nurses I'm esp close to but for the rest I just give a little something. The gifts for the others may be cheaper but I make sure they are nice little somethings.
My Mom berated me saying, that if I give such cheap gifts, I might as well not give them anything. But I'd like to believe that even a little something is better than not giving them anything. What dyu think?
