I am looking for ideas for christmas gifts for the NICU. Last Christmas I made little dove ornaments out of this dough that said peace, love, hope and a short story about our journey in the NICU. I didn't like them very much so i want to make something different. I also want to start collecting journals and pens for the parents of the babies in the NICU.

My ideas so far are bottle cap pins for the nurses that say NICU nurse, and magnets for the parents that say "Parents of a preemie, NICU graduate, Preemie parents" something along those lines.

This november we celebrate my daughters 4th birthday, and my younger daughter turns two next week, she was in the same NICU for only 18 days, but it holds a very dear spot in my heart so I want to contribute something. I will be making them for both NICU's as we spent a lot of time at both. So something that's easy to make lots of.

What do you guys think? Any neat ideas come to mind? I don't want to make blankets or quilts as there's already people that do that.

Any feedback would be appreciated thanks ladies

I've had 2 babies in the nicu over Christmas. The best little gift we got was a little stocking that had treats for the parents. The stocking was just felt sewn together but it was cute.
