Something I noticed since my first days of hospital placement was that the registered midwives and staff in the wards wore different kind of accessories such as personalized name badges, particular fob watches and cute badge holders.
The more days passed the more I realized how wearing a uniform, the same every day, can be quite depressing and therefore, adding to it something yours, happy and different can really change and cheer up your day.
I decided then to do my research online and I found something amazing on Etsy, that I thought should be in the Top Wishlist for Midwives (and beyond!): its name is BadgeBlooms
"Just as a flower transforms from a bud to an eye catching bloom, BadgeBlooms® have transformed the old boring badge reels"
BadgeBlooms® offers a unique assortment of ID badge accessories to spice up your workwear, it can be an amazing present for your colleagues, for yourself or a great thank you for the midwife who took care of you!
But let's look closer at all the reason why I highly recommend them:
1. QUALITY & BEAUTY
You will soon notice the care dedicated to the creation of these products. Melissa, nurse, mum and new entrepreneur crafts by herself all the accessories and knows well how it can make a difference having something cute and funny to add to your uniform and how it's easy to find low quality gadgets. She chose then to use the highest materials possible.
"As a nurse, having a retractable badge holder was an essential part of my uniform. The plain badge reel I purchased when starting my career broke within a couple of months. Instead of buying another, I thought it would be fun to make my own decorated badge holders using higher quality materials. I started with a few designs, and colleagues quickly noticed. Soon, I began making them for all my coworkers.
I was familiar with Etsy, and thought I'd offer my creations online. In less than 12hrs, I sold my first piece. Shortly before I became pregnant with my daughter, the business was growing so much that I was able to see my dream of being a SAHWM (Stay At Home Working Mom) come to fruition. Now, we're selling thousands per month and I get to witness and cherish all of my daughters firsts."
2. FOR YOURSELF &...FOR YOUR PATIENTS!
"Our newest line of exclusively copyrighted BadgeBlooms® Organ Characters and Medical Humor BadgeBlooms® are gaining a lot of attention, including the wildly popular Yolanda Uterus.
Working in healthcare can be stressful, I'm told our items brighten not only the wearers day but also their patients.
The things I like to hear most are how patients and or children have gotten through frightening procedures while distracted by the adorable BadgeBloom their nurse or doctor was wearing."
All items are affordable so they make excellent gifts for coworkers, corporate gifts, and stocking stuffers.
Gifts Under $10, Unique Nurse Gifts, Staff Appreciation Gifts, Coworker Gifts, Holiday Gifts, Teacher Gifts, Graduation Gifts, Birthday Gifts, Secret Santa Gifts, and Corporate Gifts.
You can also purchase multiple BadgeBlooms ® with a discount bundle pricing.
4. CLEVER DESIGN
The Mylar Button Badges are a clever way to buy a first Retractile Badge Holder and change just the buttons according to your daily mood!
5. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE & WRAPPING
The parcel arrived in Ireland from Chicago extremely fast, less then one week.
Melissa is incredibly kind and open to answer to any question you have for her and to adjust your order and product to any preference you can think at.
Furthermore, it was with a great surprise that I noticed the delicate and cute wrapping inside the parcel!
The box with the logo is extremely nice and a pink tissue paper encloses your product and a sweet message with her details.
I'd definitely love for any gift to be wrapped like that!
You won't just do something nice for yourself or your friends but also support a good cause, helping abandoned children:
"Being an obstetrics nurse, issues surrounding moms and babies are near and dear to my heart. That's why at BadgeBlooms ®, we are passionate about a local charity, and a portion of monthly Etsy proceeds will go to support The Save Abandoned Babies Foundation in Illinois. www.saveabandonedbabies.org
