Gifts for our nurses...

This week on Pinterest I came across a great idea... treat baskets for the nurses in the Mom and Baby unit! When I was in hospital with my son, Andrew, I was so grateful to the wonderful nurses who cared for us, so I immediately thought I should get some kind of thank you organized.   Instead of one basket I decided to make individual treat bags with homemade cookies.  That way I would be sure that all nurses, residents and doctors would receive a little something!

I baked a double batch of my favourite Chocolate Chip Cookies and placed them in freezer bags.

I made these great tags and printed them off on card stock.

I placed each bag of cookies into a paper bag, and secured a tag to each using some yellow ribbon.

The cookies should stay fresh in the freezer while we wait for the big day! And I'm sure to receive ultimate care!!
