Anyone doing any gift baskets for your nurse(s) or dr after delivery? I am seeing a lot of cute ideas on Pinterest and really want to make one up for my dr and the main nurse.

I'll probably just bring some cookies or bagels or something, depending on the time of day we end up going in.

I plan on making something. Haven't really decided what yet but I want to do something. Maybe a gift basket with snacks or maybe something from a local bakery. I remember I was so upset after DS2 that I wasn't able to thank my nurse with a card or anything. I cried a lot about that (most likely hormones) so this time I am hoping to do something in the beginning.

I plan to. We have had a lot of family in the hospital in the last year, so we have gotten pretty good at the nurses gifts. Packaged snacks and candy go over really well. The problem with homemade snacks is that they don't stay fresh long and some people don't like to eat stuff that people made in their homes b/c there is no way to know whether or not the kind-hearted person who brought it has a clean kitchen or not. This past week when my dad was in the cardiac ICU, we brought snacks every day. The staff loved us. We brought variety baggies of chips, variety packs of granola bars, rice krispy treats, and variety packs of full sized candy bars. They were long gone before we could replenish and the nurses thanked us profusely. They can eat them on the fly when they don't have time for much else and they can carry them with them easily down a hall. And there is something for everyone. This is what I am going to do for the L&D nurses, as well.

My stepmom works on a l&d floor and she says they always throw out homemade things due to safety concerns. I plan on bringing something store bought. Unfortunately not as personal, but better than wondering if your gift was even enjoyed.

Now you have me thinking. As far as the doctor - I do not plan on anything. The doc is well paid (Of course, I will always have a fondness in my heart for a special doctor out there. I bled at 26+ weeks with my second child. When the hospital was about to release me, he found I was contacting. He stopped everything. He managed my care and I delivered at a few days before 38 weeks. I was able to take our child home very healthy within 48 hours. I saw him last week and reminded him of what he did. He does it daily. There is no greater gift he can give to a lady.)

I am thinking of some packaged items for the nurses. As others said people often are a little weary of things baked at home. On the other hand if you are crafty I am sure that is something they would appreciate.
