Being hospitalised is exhausting, both physically and mentally. If one of your friends, family or relatives is in the hospital, then you must know this feeling. Be it an illness, injury or surgery, it drains out all the energy and leaves the patient with an irritated mood.
During this hard time, it’s your duty to show compassion towards your loved one with a special present. A get-well-soon card, gift basket or personalised gift, are all great ways of expressing your love and affection.
Looking for some get-well-soon gift ideas? If so, then go through the following list.
1) A Lovely Bouquet
Nothing can beat a bouquet of assorted flowers as a get-well-soon gift. Add roses, gerber daisies, hydrangeas, wax flowers and hypericum berries to create a colourful gift for your loved one. He/she can place it in a vase as a centerpiece or at his/her windowsill. The beautiful aroma will fill the patient’s room and give a refreshing feel.
2) A Fruit Basket
A loaded with a variety of seasonal fruits is a healthy option to consider. He/she needs adequate nourishment at this time and consumption of fruits will help him/her get Vitamin C, dietary fibres, and other important nutrients to recover from illness. However, make sure he/she is not allergic to any fruit. If so, then replace it with some other fruit.
3) A Cute Teddy Bear
If you want to gift something to a child who is in the hospital, then a cute, snuggly teddy bear is the best bet. It will give the much-needed comfort to the patient while he/she sleeps. You can add a ribbon with a personalised message for your loved one and some delicious chocolates to make him/her feel special.
4) A Fun Book
Be it a passing illness or a major surgery, the patient needs to keep him/her positive throughout the treatment. An empty mind is a devil’s workshop; therefore to keep him/her motivated while he/she lies ideal on the hospital bed, a good read is essential. A fun book with some positive thoughts and inspirational stories will give a positive outlook, beat the boredom and keep him/her diverted from the illness.
5) A Chocolate Gift Basket
Being in the hospital is boring and depressing. Why not full of sweet ‘anti-depressants’? Chocolates are the perfect mood-enhancers and wonderful get-well-soon gifts. However, if your loved one is on medication, then consult a doctor before gifting him/her chocolates. If the doctor gives a green signal, then go for it.
These small tokens of love will give a soothing touch to the one going through medicines, blood tests and what not. Even if it’s a passing illness, a get-well-soon gift will strengthen the bond you both share. Select one of these gifts and see the smile on your loved one’s face.
