Get Well Gift Basket and Flowers
Giving a get well gift basket and flowers is important for anyone recovering from a serious illness, the birth of a baby or an extended illness. It is also polite to send a get well gift basket and flowers to someone with a terminal illness. Sometimes the smallest of gestures can be all it takes to make the day of someone who isn’t feeling well.
If you will be giving a get well gift basket and flowers, make sure you set a budget for yourself. If you are able to stick to it you will ensure that you can give a wonderful gift to someone else later on. Flowers are always beautiful and their fragrance helps eliminate the “hospital” smell from hospital rooms. Bouquets can be found in any price range and can be simple or extremely elaborate.
Any get well gift basket and flowers would be much appreciated by anyone who has been feeling ill or is in need of a pick-me-up. There are a number of things you could include in the get well gift basket to make time in the hospital pass a bit more quickly. Think of a time when you may have been in the hospital. Chances are that even if you were prepared and came to the hospital with things to occupy your time, you finished them up with relative speed. Anyone in the hospital who is well enough to sit up for any length of time is sure to experience some boredom from time to time. It is great to build a gift basket based on the basic need for mental stimulation. You can add books of crossword puzzles, word finds, games or sudoku to help pass the time. Many hospitals have CD players available for patients to use. If the hospital in your situation does, consider giving a CD or two of the patient’s favorite genre or a book on CD to listen to. Books are another great option. Paperbacks of recent best-sellers are extremely affordable and can meet the reading preference of just about anyone. There are also paperback versions of many literary classics. Games in travel sizes are also wonderful for hospital stays. They are smaller than their full-sized versions and are easy to store away conveniently. Games for one or two players are appropriate. A deck of cards or a deck of cards for a specific game (Phase 10, Pinochle, Hearts) can be a lovely addition as well. Additional items to include are magazines, baby wipes, shampoo, shaving items, toiletries, tissues, and snack items. All of these will be exponentially useful to a patient and a great addition to any get well gift basket and flowers.
If you happen to know someone who will be in the hospital for an extended period of time it is always a nice gesture to send a get well gift basket and flowers.
