Hospital Thank You Bags! (Baby edition)

Hello everyone,

Today I am officially 34 weeks pregnant and packing up our hospital bags. One thing I try to do, every time I have gone in to deliver, is bring some sort of thank you gift. I know they are “doing their job” but it always feels good to be acknowledged. Especially during the long shifts so many of them work each day.

With my son it was personalized cards and teddy grahams. With my daughter we did thank you cards and candy bars. I remember I had a midwife student in the room during my daughter’s delivery and despite the fast pace of everything and being slightly intimidated she was so sweet! She came in and gave me a hug after she discovered our thank you card πŸ™‚

This time around we will have a handful of thank you cards for those who helped with our delivery. During the rest of our stay I wanted something easy I could pass out. Usually my husband takes charge of writing the thank you cards but if he isn’t around and with our kids I still wanted something to show my appreciation.

So with all of that being said….this is what I’m doing this go around for baby #3 and our 2nd little boy πŸ™‚ I made 15 bags in total so each one was pretty inexpensive to make.

It was soooo easy to put together and I got everything from Target (quick online delivery!) I would go in store but it becomes more of a challenge with two little ones while pregnant πŸ™‚

All you need is items for inside the bag. I chose chapstick, cliff bars (blueberry, white chocolate, and chocolate chip), and some gum. I also got these clear plastic treat bags and a package of blue tissue paperΒ (pink option).

Since the tissue paper came in a pack of 8 I just cut each piece in half (16 total now) andΒ  folded it in half to cover the items on each side.

I stuck the items and tissue paper inside the plastic bag and slipped in the thank you card/tag (pictured above).

Here are the cards I made to use. Both the baby boy and baby girl version. If you want to put more than 4 you can just copy these pictures and paste them onto a word document.

Again super easy to throw together but something every nurse can use!(according to my nursing friends). I know another super popular and easy thing to do is just to buy doughnuts, bagels or pizza for the nursing floor. But my poor husband will already be traveling back and forth a lot πŸ™‚ Would love to hear what you did! Comment down below!

Happy delivery,
