Get Well Gift Ideas

  • Homemade Heating Pad

    This inexpensive and simple-to-make heating pad can be used over and over again! Each time they use it, they'll know that you are thinking of them.

  • Get Well Gift Basket

    Use a gift basket to put "get well" items in (chicken soup, aspirin, tea, cough drops, bandages, vitamins, etc.)

  • Boredom Buster

    When you're in bed sick, it can get pretty boring. Purchase (or lend) books, magazines, puzzle books, stationary, dvd's, board games, computer games, or hand-craft items (knitting, embroidery, cross stitch, etc.) and put put them in a basket or stack them and tie them up with a ribbon.

  • Make Them Comfortable

    Buy things that will make them feel relaxed and comfy...a pair of slippers, new pajamas, a robe, or a cozy blanket would be perfect!

  • Look Forward to "Well Time"

    Give them something to look forward to after they're feeling better--a gift certificate for a round of golf, a few games of bowling, tickets to the movies, a concert or a theme park--whatever it is they enjoy doing when they're feeling well.

  • Flowers

    Pep up the room they're recovering in with a dose of fresh flowers.

  • Fruit Basket

    Help build their immune system using the healthy benefits of fruit. To get a little more creative with this idea, try making an edible fruit bouquet that both looks and tastes great!

  • Movie Package

    For those recovering from a surgery or other medical issue that does not affect their appetite or diet, create a movie package. Fill an unpopped popcorn tub or popcorn bowl with drinks, snacks, microwave popcorn, seasoning salts, and a DVD (or a gift certificate to a movie rental store--with a note that says you'll pick it up for them).

  • Art Kit

    This is a great get well gift for a child. Fill a gift bag or other container with pencils, crayons, markers, paper (both construction and drawing), stickers, scissors, glue, stencils---whatever art supplies you can find. Other great add-on gifts would be a lap desk or how-to-draw books.
