..Nurse Thank You Bags

July 29, 2018

The deets: Blue Raccoon Designs muslin baby onesie bags via Etsy (mine are 5x7); Plum Polka Dot hair ties via Esty (I asked to swap dots for floral ties); Forever 21 Rose Face Masks; Vaseline Rosey Lips; cards were a Home Goods find (sorry); Tiny Bees cookie wrappers via Etsy (had them leftover from my wedding welcome boxes).

Okay, I know some of you may think this is #extra but I knew very early on that I was 100% going to be putting together thank you gifts for my delivery nurses and doctors. I definitely don't think it's something you have to do at all (they just care about you getting out of there safely with baby) nor do they expect anything for doing their jobs but for the amount of trust you have to put in them and how they much take care of you in your most precious life moments just makes me personally want to leave them knowing how much gratitude I have. Those jobs are so hard and so high pressure! I could never do it. 

Since I knew I wanted to do them I just added it to my hospital bag to-do packing list and since I am pretty type A when it comes to being prepared (you guys know how I start preparing packing lists for trips months in advance) I actually already have my hospital bag 90% done and knocked out these thank you baggies this weekend too! I only have a few things we use everyday left to throw in there along with some fresher cookies. I baked these just for the photos (and my husband) but the homemade dough is ready and frozen in my freezer so I can make some the week leading up (currently 35 weeks pregnant). I know that might not happen if I end up being in an on the fly situation but in that case I have some boxed snacks I'll throw in instead since the rest of the bag contents are packed. 

I know these are pretty girly but I didn't really see any male nurses my whole tour (and there are Starbucks gift cards I'll have on hand if that happens) but since I am having a girl I went with an "it's a girl!" pink rosey theme. If I were having a boy I also had plans to get the same kinds of items but in blue theme. I also added in the cards even though the hair ties say it already because when I was researching nurse thank you bags around the web a lot of actual nurses commented that they appreciated the handwritten notes the most. To be totally honest I just enjoy putting these kinds of things together and I am really happy with how they came out!
