In preparing for the delivery of our little princess, it has felt like a never ending list of to-dos! Clean this, wash that, pack this for the hospital, leave that at home. So many lists!
Maternity Nurse Gifts
One of the things I really wanted to do was make maternity nurse gifts for the staff. Nothing too big of course, because with a new baby we are on a budget. But still something sweet and individual for the people who would be taking care of me and my precious baby girl for the short time we’re in the hospital.
My aunt is a nurse and when I asked her opinion on the matter she said anything chocolate is a big hit and, of course, little individual gifts are so appreciated by the staff.
I decided to make little baggies with two types of chocolate, Reeses and MnM’s. In addition, I purchased the candy from Walmart for less than $10, and still had plenty leftover for those late night chocolate cravings.
I opted for Individual Portioned Baggies (these Great Value Brand bags to be specific) since I already had them in my cabinet and then designed labels to attach to them. These bags are actually the perfect width of a business card, so using them to potentially promote a business in the future may come in handy! Just staple your card to the top and go, but that’s a topic for a different blog post.
DIY Maternity Nurse Gifts
While I know, without a doubt, that we are having a girl, I figured some readers may be having a boy or may not know at all (kudos to those moms who can wait until birth to find out, the suspense of that would kill me!) may want other color options besides pink. I have included the FREE printables for pink, blue and yellow if you would like to recreate these for your own use.
Once printed, I cut the labels out, folded them over and stapled them to the bags. Super easy and quick! All together, I made 20 little baggies in less than 30 minutes.
