My oncologist and her staff at the county hospital are GREAT!  They are so friendly and caring--I look forward to every visit.  Any ideas what I could/should give them for Christmas?

    A Starbucks travel carrier for the office and the gingerbread

    How about Starbucks for the office with the gingerbread loaf they make?

    I brought a box of peaches

    to the doctors and nurses and staff to the place where I was treated for breast cancer about 8 years ago . They were so nice and lovely to me that I try to do it every year. This year I didn't make it due to having my surgery for kidney cancer...but everyone seems to appreciate any kind of food treat. Thanks for your thoughtfulness!

    I'm just going to give them the bird

    Lots of birds, actually. Little paper birds. I do origami.

    There's rules...

    There's rules that medical folks have to follow as to what they can receive as gifts.  Where I worked, it pretty much was reduced to snackies or no-cost trinkety things.  If you were a vendor, they sometimes even limited the food and when / where you could bring it.  Hence, medical staff folks are probably awash in cheap ballpoint pens (Might like some nicer but still inexpensive ones). 

    I don't think my little squares of folded paper will be a problem.  Maybe I should have little packets of snackies, too, just to be on the safe side.

    FOOD to share!  Most

    FOOD to share!  Most professionals cannot receive gifts, her their licensing board criteria.

    However, if you bring something to SHARE with the whole staff it is okay.

    Nice idea~

    I agree, food is always welcome

    I sent a gift "tower" of candies to my "earth angels" that care for my mom in the alzheimers facility in California.....it was a BIG hit.
