Hello Everybody!

It’s Taryn again from Design, Dining + Diapers and it’s always great to be here The 36th Avenue!

I’m just 2 1/2 weeks away from my due date with baby #2, so naturally all things baby have been on my mind.

In preparation for the big day, I took a little time to make gifts for the nurses at the hospital.

When I had my first 2 1/2 years ago, I had no idea that people actually did this.

But I have since learned how much the L&D nurses appreciate little gifts so I thought I’d put together a little something to show our thanks for all of their hard work. Afterall, if it wasn’t for the awesome nurses, L&D might be a whole different experience!

I put together these little mason jars filled with salt water taffy and a little note that reads, “Thank you for helping us welcome our SWEET baby into this world!” These little gifts were super simple to make and could work not only for L&D nurses but as thank you gifts for friends and family



– Mason Jars – Salt Water Taffy (or candy of your choice) – Burlap Fabric – Jute – Tags (see free printable below) IMG_3459


I started by filling the mason jars with the yummy salt water taffy. I originally wanted to use a different type of candy, but decided that something wrapped would be more appropriate in this situation. And how can you go wrong with taffy? IMG_3473


Then, I cut out 5 inch circles of burlap and prepared my jute and tags. Nurse Thank You Printable via @Tarynatddd


I created this graphic for the tags (click HERE to download)

and then used my Silhouette machine to cut it out in the shape of tags. DIY Nurse Gifts via @Tarynatddd


And it all comes together like this!

I’m hoping I get to give these to the nurses sooner rather than later 🙂

Thanks for having me over today, Desiree!
