    Default Is it weird to give your Dr a christmas gift?

    So we absolutely love our GP, and we are seeing her for an appointment next week, and I was thinking of giving her a little christmas gift - like chocolates or a nice christmas ornament or something - do you think this is weird? Like, creepy? lol.

    When I was teaching, I loved getting cards & things from the parents & gifts too - not because I liked getting presents, but because I really felt their appreciation and the thought that went into it. So I thought it would be nice to do something for our doctor, she is trained as an ob but works as a GP specialising with women and babies and delivers babies at our hospital, so we have seen her though my pregnancies and she sees my DD now, so I feel like she has done so much for us and we'd like to say thank you.

    So have you given your Dr a christmas gift before or do you think it's a creepy thing to do?

    I used to work in a doctors surgery in the UK and the doctors used to get chocolates, wine etc from patients, they loved it.

    Not weird at all. If I was seeing my GP next week I'd probably take a pressie. We're going to our M&CHN on Wednesday next week and all going well I hope to take a home baked pressie (we've all been sick for the last 10 days, so no baking for us yet).

    No it's part of why they love their job they love the good news remember OBs see the difficult pregnancies typically not just the healthy ones so good news is always a bonus

    Not weird at all - but I'd probably stick to something edible or consumable, nothing keepsakey or that will take up space.

    I invited the midwife that delivered DD to her first birthday - she came, brought her son and had a great time
