Today I wanted to share what we put in our “Thank You” baskets for our nurses at the hospital! You definitely don’t have to bring a thank you basket when you give birth, but I think it’s a really nice gesture. The nurses work so hard and it’s often a thankless job!!!
To start with, I found these cute pink baskets on Amazon that were just the perfect size. I ordered two of them, one for the nurses in the Labor and Delivery unit and the other for the Postpartum unit (at my hospital, they’re on two different floors). For the cute, customizable “Thank You” tags, I purchased the template from Etsy and printed them off myself. I also laminated them because the paper felt really flimsy! You could also print them on cardstock to get a similar effect. (P.S. There are a tons of template options to choose from on Etsy!)
For my baskets, I didn’t want to include just candy and sweets (since they probably get a lot of that). I thought it would be fun to put together some of my favorite non-food items! This includes my favorite hair scrunchies, claw clips, eye patches… and Tarte makeup! Here’s a little graphic that shows everything in the baskets:
I did throw in a *few* sweets, because who can resist chocolate pretzels? 😀
Let me know if you have any questions!
