A thoughtful gift can brighten the day of your loved one in the hospital. At the Wishing Well Gift Shop in Women’s and Children’s Hospital, we provide gifts and items to cheer up patients and celebrate new lives.
We offer a variety of wonderful gift items, including:
- Baby items (numerous pink and blue selections including big brother/big sister t-shirts)
- Coloring books, puzzle books and activity books
- Melissa & Doug educational toys
- Plush, fun toy animals in all shapes and sizes
The volunteers are happy to deliver merchandise to patient rooms. Food items such as gum and candy will not be delivered without approval from the nursing staff.
The gift shop is a wonderful part of the culture of MU Health Care and Women's and Children's Hospital. All profits from the gift shop benefit patient programs.
