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)


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?


Then, I cut out 5 inch circles of burlap and prepared my jute and tags.


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.


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!


I love Taryn and this project shows so much what sweet and kind person she is.
