Gifts for the NICU

‘Tis the season for giving, and that is exactly what Pampers has given me the opportunity to do this holiday season by creating gifts for the NICU at a local hospital.

Having a child in the NICU has to be difficult. Thanks to Pampers, I was able to provide gifts for the NICU families at a local hospital.

Taking inspiration from Pampers iconic “Peace on Earth” video, I created little gifts for the babies and their parents.

I assume it’s incredibly hard to have a child in the NICU, but I imagine it’s even harder over the holidays. I wanted to do a little something that would bring a little cheer to these special families.

Gifts for the NICU

I’ve never had a baby in the NICU so I didn’t really know where to start. After talking with some of the nurses and educators at the hospital, I came up with these little gifts for the NICU.

Each of these gifts for the NICU include:

  • aden + anais muslim swaddler
  • $10 Starbucks gift card
  • $10 iTunes gift card
  • Baby’s first Christmas ornament
  • small stocking
  • M&M’s mini
  • York Peppermint patties

With the funds I had been given, I was able to purchase enough supplies for 15 families.

Two of my children and I delivered our gifts for the NICU yesterday and it was such a great feeling to be able to do something I wouldn’t normally be able to do for people I don’t even know.

I hope that my children grow up with a desire to help others. To see beyond their own needs to the needs of those around them.

I’m so thankful for companies like Pampers that see the value in these random acts of kindness and for giving me the opportunity to make a difference right in my own backyard!

Thanks, Pampers!

    Speaking as a mom who had twins in the NICU for 2 weeks, I can say that you did a WONDERFUL job on these! This would have definitely brightened our spirits! I’m sure they will be greatly appreciated!

    This is amazing. My daughter spent just over 30 hours in the NICU when she was born this past summer, and I was able to see a lot of the babies in there… this is wonderful and would for sure mean the world!

    Aww this is such a wonderful idea! I would have never thought of doing anything like this. So great seeing people give back.

    One of our granddaughter spent the holiday in NICU and gifts are so appreciated. Thank you for all of your inspiration and generosity. I know how much it is appreciated. i donate to the cause every year but you have inspired me to start volunteering.

    Such an amazing idea! I love how people think they must give back to others! Volunteering is really appreciated.

    Now that is a great idea and something these parents will really appreciate. I have a good friend whose granddaughter was in the NICU for 4 months and it was the little things like this that mattered so much to her daughter and husband.

    What a great idea to give gifts to the NICU, I love the giving back mentality and making a new parents life easier/happier by doing this.

    These are all so precious. I especially like that you come from the place of ‘putting a smile on their faces.’ Yes, that’s the most important part!

    This brought back memories of my little ones in the NICU. It is a precious time and the right gift makes a great difference.

    Our oldest twins were in the NICU during the Christmas season, and gifts like these really made the hard times easier. We were given blankets and ornaments from people who just wanted to help, and it really did!

    What a sweet idea!! I am sure those parents loved it, what a hard time of year to have babies in the NICU.

  12. 12

    That is such a sweet idea. I know a couple of people who’s kids had to be in the NICU, and little things like this are what made it easier on them.

    Those are the sweetest little gift bundles ever – I especially love the baby’s first Christmas ornament idea. That’s something many in the NICU might not get because things are so busy and hectic.
