When a loved one goes through a health problem, whether it’s an illness, a surgery, or a broken bone, you would do anything you could to help. While you might not be able to take away the source of their pain, there are ways to show you care and help lift your loved one’s spirits. One easy way is to send a get well gift that can instantly put a smile on her face. Here’s how.
How to Choose a Get Well Gift
Choosing a get well gift isn’t as complicated as it may seem. Your first step is to consider the type of illness or health problem your loved one is experiencing. This can influence the type of gift you get her. For example, if she’s undergoing surgery and has an extended hospital stay, consider a hospital care package that includes everything she needs for extra comfort. Or, if she’s battling a cold, the flu, or COVID-19, consider a care package that includes a big jar of chicken noodle soup. On the other hand, you could give her something that promotes rest and relaxation, such as an electric heated blanket or an aromatherapy candle.
Or, consider choosing a gift from Edible Arrangements® that’s designed just for the occasion. We have an entire section that’s devoted just to get well soon gifts, including fresh fruit arrangements, cupcakes, flowers, and balloons.
