Gifts For a Family Member
Get Well Tote For Guys
This “Get Well Crap” tote bag full of get well crap is great for the father, brother, or uncle in your life whose health needs a little pick-me-up. Included in the bag are a velvet throw, Burt’s Bees creams, and ginger snap cookies.
Advertised as being for pregnant women, these body pillows can help ease aches and pains for men and non-pregnant women alike. The Snoogle takes the place of multiple pillows to help support hips, back, and neck.
Remember the last time you had the flu? What did your house look like after you recouped? Probably worse than a nightmare. So, why not give a loved one the joy of not having to scrub the bathroom tiles? Consider hiring a house-cleaner for the day to spruce up the place a bit.
Netflix Gift Cards
There’s only so many books and magazines you can read while lying in bed. Give the gift of thousands of original TV shows and movies on Netflix to help entertain your loved one during a prolonged illness.
Your not-feeling-so-well family member will probably be doing a lot of sleeping, so a personalized inspirational pillow sounds like part of the cure. The embroidered design includes the person’s name, a list of qualities to inspire, and a get well message.
Trips back and forth to the doctor’s office can get costly when it comes to transportation. If your family member drives, consider buying them a gift card at their nearest gas station. If they prefer public transportation, grab them an unlimited pass for the longest duration of time available.
We own one of these, and seriously -- it feels amazing even without an illness. They are known to help with anxiety, and they provide the gentle sensation of being held to encourage deep, healthy, restful sleep.
Get Well Tote for Ladies
In case the ailing one is a mom, sister, or aunt, here’s the female version of the previous gift. This tote includes a pashmina wrap, Lipton chicken soup mix, and organic peppermint tea.
Mrs. Fields’ Feel Better Bear
Let’s not forget the little ones in this list. Mrs. Fields has a “Feel Better Bear” dressed as a doctor to comfort the younger members of your family. Oh, and he comes with six cookies. Yum.
Already Prepared Meals
If you’re a spaz in the kitchen, you know how tough it is to cook with all body parts working. Imagine having a broken bone, a chronic illness -- or worse -- and trying to just shop for ingredients. A healthy, pre-prepared meal would be more than appreciated by your ailing family member.
Amazon Prime Membership
If your dear one is going to find it difficult to travel to the store to buy necessities or treat themselves to a new pair of shoes for the foreseeable future, consider buying them an Amazon Prime Membership. This allows him or her to get their desirables with free two-day shipping.
Pulse Point Oils Wheat Bag
An aching body will hinder anyone from fully recuperating. These handmade bags are a great and pleasantly smelling alternative to a hot water bottle. Pop it in the microwave and voila.
