Cheer Sick Loved Ones with Get Well Care Packages
Life isn't always a bed of roses. Indeed, most people have a time in their life when they aren't feeling well, or when they have to undergo surgery or endure a long-term sickness. If you know someone that's under the weather, a great way to show you care is with a get well care package. Giving a care package to a sick loved one is a warm gesture that will melt their heart while also providing snacks and unique products to cheer their spirit.
*Note: Some gift shops may not deliver to hospital rooms, so be sure to read all the fine print about delivery, and prepare to deliver the care package in person if this is the case.
Gift Items to Promote Wellness
Look for care packages to promote wellness. You'll notice while shopping online for gifts that care packages often include candies, chocolates, cheeses, pretzels, coffee, or other gourmet snacks. But for a sick loved one, get well care packages may also include medical remedy items, healthy fruits, soothing herbal teas, aromatherapy products, stress balls, pill boxes, sore throat lozenges, mugs or soup cups, and even delicious chicken noodle soup! For little ones, look for fun packaging with first aid items such as Gummy Aid get well band aides and hand-held games or puzzles, along with a cuddly stuffed animal they can enjoy during their hospital stay.
Care packages may also contain boredom buster products to help your loved one cope with long days spent at a hospital or in bed at home. Look for care packages that include crossword puzzle books, a novel by their favorite author, inspirational books, playing cards, a travel size game such as Uno, Yahtzee, or Checkers, and maybe even a CD with their favorite style of music. These are sure to make them feel better while giving them something to do during those long hours!
Care Packages for Work
If you often find it difficult to select a gift for a sick co-worker, boss or business client, a get well care package offers the ultimate opportunity to share your concern while maintaining your professionalism. Find out from a family member what type of snacks/games they enjoy if you're not sure. Also, obtain their home address to send the gift to their family if you can't have it delivered to the hospital. A family member can deliver the package to the hospital for you if you're unable to visit in person.
Care packages make wonderful gifts for other occasions such as birthdays, holidays, new college students or graduates, gifts for mom and dad on their anniversary, new moms, Valentine's Day, or any time you just want to say "Thinking of You!" Use online gift basket resources to browse hundreds of gift choices. You'll be ready on the spot with plenty of care package ideas the next time your friend or loved one isn't feeling well!
