When we find out our friends or co-workers are hospitalized, the first idea that comes to our mind is often to send them a get well gift. Indeed, wishing friends and loved ones to get well soon is one of the common gift occasion. A heartfelt gift can cheer up the patient, make them feel being loved, and facilitate healing of the body. This article provides some ideas on get well gifts for different situations.
In selecting a get well gift, some of the considerations are:
* Is the illness mild or serious?
* If the patient is hospitalized, will the hospital stay be long or short?
* Does the patient have dietary restriction?
For individuals with mild illness, such as the flu, you may want to make them feel better by sending a basket filled with Chinese green tea and fresh honey to soothe their soring throat. The basket also contains cookies, cheese, and other goodies. Alternatively, you can send a gift basket filled with humor and treats that will help to beat the blues. The gift contains band aids, Get Well pills, fortune cookies, giant aspirin and popcorn that will amuse the recipients and cure their ailment.
For individuals diagnosed with serious illness, you may want to send a gift basket with a book of inspirational and uplifting stories of personal triumph. The stories will help the patients to overcome the challenges they may face. Also included in the basket are a calming aromatherapy candle, chocolate drizzled biscotti, herbal green tea, cinnamon vanilla tea, and other treats. This gift basket is especially appealing to women. For men, you can send a care package to help him go through rough time. The white gloss gift box has a word search puzzle book to keep him occupied, a plush monkey in a “Hang in There t-shirt” that will bring a smile to his face, and healthy treats that will brighten his day.
For a humorous touch, you can send a gift box filled with a “cranky” teddy bear, chicken noodle soup, crossword puzzle book, herbal green tea, a stress ball, and other treats. The recipients will know you care when they open this thoughtful gift.
As mentioned previously, you need to find out how long the patient will be staying in the hospital before sending your gift. If you want to send the gift to the hospital, you have to be sure the recipient will not be discharged from the hospital already when the gift is delivered. Otherwise, it may be better to send the gift to the home of the recipient. For illnesses that require long recuperating period (as in major surgery), you may want to send a gift box filled with playing cards, Smiley face stress ball, a teddy bear with a Get Well Soon message on its tee shirt, and other goodies. This thoughtful care package will sure to bring some sunshine and cheer up the recipients and make them feel better.
For someone with strict dietary restriction, a nonfood gift may be appropriate. You can send a plush bear which delivers a heart warming voice message of goodwill and love to help your loved one to get better. The teddy bear will delight and inspire your loved one to feel better soon, and is appropriate for kids and adults. Alternatively, you can send a candy bouquet. For individuals who cannot take in sugar, you can send sugar free candy bouquet. You can also send a rose bouquet or a container garden which contains everything needed for flowers to grow in a container: seeds, nutrients, soil and a decorative leak-resistant bag that is used for its very own growing pot. The recipient will appreciate your caring thoughts when the plant grows and blooms.
In addition to gifts with get well theme, you can send other gifts that the patient enjoys, for example, a soup gift basket. Soup baskets are meant to make the patinet feel “good all over”, and are filled with old-Fashioned chicken noodle soup mix, water crackers, natural baked pita chips, wine cheese, a small cheese knife and other soothing treats.
A movie gift basket can help the patient to pass the time. One of such movie gift box is filled with movie theatre snacks such as Cracker Jacks, Planters peanuts, buttery movie popcorn, pretzels, and Movie Roll gift tin filled with assorted mini candy bars. The movie gift basket can provide an evening of fun and tasty snacking when you send it to your movie-buff friend who is ailing.
For Nascar lovers, you can send a Nascar lovers gift basket to wish them a speedy recovery. The gift contains a history book of stock car racing that will entertain your NASCAR fan, and the goodies in the basket will treat him as he reads.
In summary, sending gifts to friends and loved ones who are sick can cheer them up and help them to recover sooner. Popular gifts include get well gift basket, gift box, candy bouquet, plush bear with voice message, fresh rose bouquet, soup gift basket. Send these gifts to express your heart felt wishes, and they will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
