Help...I need some ideas for xmas basket!

  1. Hello

    I'm putting together a gift basket for some friends for christmas. It's titled "Nursing Survival Kit". I'm including some of the following:

    Toothpick: To pick out the good in everyone-including yourself.
    Marbles: To replace the ones you lost somewhere along the way.

    I need some ideas for this basket and was hoping allnurses would come to my rescue. Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks a bunch everyone....happy holidays!!!!!

    Perhaps some inexpensive /skin/nail care items...pumice stone, things for hands & feet--Since we've always got to be 'on our toes' and put our best foot forward.

    Small hand lotions - Since we all know "one hand washes the other"

    Herbal tea assortment--Because there will be times we're all in hot water.

    Lip balm---To be a reminder that sometimes we may have to kiss things to keep peace on the job.:kiss

    A few pieces of candy tossed in---to remind us that we attract more bees with sugar, than with vinegar!

    THEN--(if I were preparing the basket )...I'd go to a website, like (my favorite) & gather some "words of wit/wisdom/humor" and pen them onto little pieces of paper...& tuck them into the basket .

    I don't think there's a nurse around that wouldn't appreciate this.:Santa1:
