Can anyone recommend nice gift ideas for my midwife and her assistants? Thanks!
One idea I had was a nice bright flashlight. I figure you can always use an extra. Can any midwives recommend their favorite flashlight? Or maybe this is not a good idea?
Something personal or for self care. A gift certificate for a massage, gift card to a nice boutique, a midwifery themed piece of jewelry, gift basket with chocolates and fancy foods, bottle of wine. (Depending on her tastes of course.) Getting a flashlight from a client would be like getting a vacuum cleaner for mother's day.
So many things are nice :) Soaps, candles, jewelery, ornaments for a tree, coffee or tea, a nice travel mug, gift cards (especially for eating out or doing fun things), etc. It doesn't have to be birth related.

I am planning on getting my MW gift certificates for a night out with her DH. She's told me about her favourite restaurant and small theater. I also plan to get a fruit arrangement for the entire clinic - about 10 MW plus the staff and their students. I like the idea of a gift certificate for a spa or treatment.
It's so hard to find something purposeful and meaningful.

I have enjoyed receiving massage certificates, warm socks, and earrings. Oh, starbucks gift card. And a Coke T-shirt, as I'm seldom far from my diet coke.
I really like my bitty mag-light - it's as strong as a big one, but runs on AA's b/c it's LED. Or I have a headlamp I love - the vag light, for suturing. It's sold as a moutaineering light, goes around my forehead.
After 4 m/c, our is here!
