FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!

Putting the nurses basket together was really fun. I love making gift baskets and also enjoyed it this time (I have actually also made a huge basket to take with me when I went to hospital with Emilia but I have never gotten around to share it and after a few months I didn´t even find the photos anymore but I loved how the nurses loved the surprise and little things I got for them). The day I finished the basket actually was the day I went into labour. Maybe it was because this was the last thing to finish and after that I was mentally ready for her to be here.
So this time it definitely didn´t do anyhting for me other than feeling very accomplished. I made two baskets this time around cause the labour and delivery ward is another than the postpartum station and there are wonderful people in both areas that care for you and the baby.
I got lots of little but “practical” things for the baskets. And before you get to me this is not meant to be that everybody gets a piece of everything. It is the idea of taking some little things that you might want/need at that moment like a sweet treat, some gum, a hair tie or even just a pen.
What I put into the nurses baskets
– lip blam
– hand cream
– hair accessories
– trail mix
These are just some things you could get but there are a thousands more like little coffee cans, gift cards, hand sanitizers and many many more. I think you get where I am going to.
Do you like the idea of giving the hospital staff a little something for their efforts? I know that it is their work but it isn´t it nice to be valued as well??!!
