"goodie basket"

I was just wondering.....I've seen previous posts talk about taking a "treat" to the castle staff when they have their surgeries.

What exactly do you put in there. I have one week to go and thought it might be an idea. Something nice for the awesome nursing staff, and maybe a '"sucking up tactic" for the few that are not so nice. Any ideas would be great. Thanks a bunch.

The goody basket I brought had hard candy like mints and things like that and also those small chocolate bars. I also had on hand some Biscotti that was indivually wrapped that is good with either tea or coffee.
The staff really appreciated the treats and thoughtfullness.

Life Savers! Since that wonderful nursing staff is helping to save the quality of our lives!

I'm also doing assorted individually wrapped votive candles and little bags of potpourri since I work for a pottery/candle/home decor company and know that sometimes a little votive or potpourri can add a great aroma (and perfect for those afraid to indulge in the sweets!) -

The goodie baskets are a great idea and very much appreciated by the staff! I bought a basic square tin box at Target and in it put miniature Hershey candies and kisses, mini peppermint patties, some fruit flavored hard sucking candies, assorted tea bags, and a variety of hand lotions (small, travel size).

Everyone who came into my room, from the nurses to the techs to the lady who mopped the floor, was offered something and no one refused. Hospital employees work so hard and deserve a treat.

What a great idea!

You ladies never fail to amaze me!
Now here's a way to take my mind off of me, and how fun to plan! Thank you for a great idea! Why didn't this occur to me sooner?!

Hi, I took a basket of candy treats & found staff going out of their way to come by and grab a little nibble. I put a variety of small wrapped candies in it. I didn't think of Biscotti , that would be good ( I probably would have eaten it all). I also took some small angel pins that I made & gave them to the "angels" who were extra nice or caring. I was given good care so I gave away 14 angels. Everyone enjoys a small token of appreciation. :dance2:

Sweet Tooth

Hello Ladies
What I used for the nurses was tootsie rolls, bite size milky ways, herseys treasures, and some gum for those without a sweet tooth. I wanted to butter up all the nurses but only a few took some, my Dr wouldn't touch the stuff. If I had it to do over again I might add a few fruit somethings for those who watch what they eat.
I might add it was hard having those sit on my table within reach when I could only eat jello!!!!
Good Luck all you LIW.....
Your trip will be done and over with before you know it!
