Gifts for Nurses on Labor and Delivery Day - D.I.Y. Goody Bags


I wanted to find a way to say 'thank you' to the nurses I'll meet on my labor and delivery day, which is fast approaching! After spending way too much time on Pinterest, I ended up doing my own little version of goody bag gifts for nurses. I think the people who help bring your baby into the world deserve a little something extra, so here's what we made to take to the hospital...


- chewing gum
- individually wrapped chocolates
- funky ink pens
- Purell hand sanitizer
- smoothing lotion
- Blistex

The contents are simple- just a few little things for the nurse on the go! Still, I think it's the thought that counts here. I mean, if I were delivering babies- you BET I'd want someone to say thank you. This idea just takes a little extra step to show appreciation for the special people who'll take care of you and your baby. We tied pink ribbons to seal off the transparent bags and I found a template for the little thank you note online. Simple to attach to each gift and made more personal with a handwritten signature at the bottom, I think.

I put together 7-8 of these little bags with my already packed hospital bag. This way, we're less likely to forget them when we head in for labor and delivery day. I'm excited to give these to the nurses I haven't yet met and I'm even more excited to meet my little girl!!
