When someone has been ill, there’s nothing that cheers them up faster than a Get Well Gift Basket. These are not only fun for the recipient but can actually help the healing go more quickly. You can either order one to be delivered or choose to personally assemble one yourself.
The ones customized by you will probably be more appreciated as well as include more of the things you know this person likes. Have a look at these ideas to get you started:
1. Let Me Entertain You: This is a gift basket that contains everything you know this person enjoys. Put in the latest best sellers from their favorite writers, some crossword puzzle magazines, DVDs, music CDs from by their favorite bands, jigsaw puzzles, set of pens and pencils, and anything else that you know they love.
These are guaranteed to keep the person occupied and relaxing, as they need to be doing.
2. The Hobby Basket: If the person you’re putting the gift basket together for has a special hobby that can be indulged in while recuperating, you can assemble The Hobby Get Well Basket. For example, if this person happens to crochet or knit, you can put in various skeins of yarn, needles, and pattern books.
For people that enjoy painting by numbers, you can put together a basket containing several paint-by-number pictures, a set of good paint brushes, and other things that may go along with that. This is where knowing your recipient is handy.
3. The Gamer Basket: For those recuperating people that enjoy playing games, you can put together a basket that will keep them busy and occupied for hours on end. If they own a game console such as a PS3 or Xbox 360, you can buy games that you know will be enjoyed.
Computer games can also be purchased to be played directly on the computer. For Dungeons and Dragons fans, a new campaign, the latest D & D book, some accessories and anything else to flesh that out works nicely. Just be prepared to have to also offer some of your time to play, too.
