It’s important to celebrate the good times with friends and family, but it’s also important to support them when things aren’t going well. We all get sick, whether it’s the flu or a more serious disease or surgery. Wish those you love the most a speedy recovery with one of these great get-well gifts.
Mom in the Mail
When you aren’t feeling good, nothing is better than mom. In this case, mom comes in the form of freshly baked cookies or bars! Choose between the two or a mixture of both with fresh out of the oven favorites, like classic chocolate chip, double fudge pretzel brownies, and pecan toffee shortbread. Add on the get well extras and they’ll send fuzzy socks, Kleenex and ginger chews along with the cookies.
This style box not only provides you with comfy clothes from trendy brands to recover in, but it also donates 10% back to Stand Up to Cancer. Surprise your friend with a new athleisure outfit, a handmade Pura Vida bracelet (that also gives back!), and a fun pair of sunglasses from I-SEA to look towards brighter days.
After someone is sick in the house, all you want to do is keep germs away. This cute little kit from Humble Suds (plant-based, safe cleaning products that smell good) comes with everything you need to rid of the germs: laundry detergent, all-purpose cleaner, two hand sanitizers, and a mask. It’s the perfect gift for anyone on the mend or someone who wants to fight off germs.
Sometimes, a few meaningful words can go a long way. These Good Snail cards have adorably designed messages like “You’re one tough cookie” and “Chemo is tough, but I know someone tougher.” Add a custom message for them to print out for you, or order it blank and add something in your own writing to show how much you care!
Night sweats sometimes come with being sick, and they can be super uncomfortable. This sleepwear brand aims to change that with moisture moving technology— Xirotex—that pulls away sweat and bacteria. There are few things as valuable as a good night sleep (especially when you aren’t feeling well!), and this aims to change that.
People need to feel loved in good times and in bad. We love this gift for someone recovering from surgery or battling a major illness. It’s the perfect pick-me-up to remind them how much they are loved and supported. With just a few minutes, friends and family can contribute notes to this little love jar. Present the jar with all of the notes and we are certain that love and appreciation will radiate.
Flowers and plants are always nice get well gestures, but it’s hard not to smile when the plant comes in a vase shaped like a llama! This potted plant from Enchanted Express is a low-maintenance house plant, so they can reap the benefits of bedside greenery without too much work to care for it.
A warm bath can feel so therapeutic, especially when you are soaking in tea. This bath tea 2-pack contains soothing lavender and calming green tea, the perfect antidotes to sore muscles or a recovering body.
It’s always nice to have one less thing to worry about when you are recovering. Freshly meals make a great gift because they are easy to prepare—they come ready to heat. All meals are gluten-free and filled with good stuff like seasonal vegetables and lean proteins. Your sick friend or family member will thank you for the ease of cooking AND cleaning up.
Sometimes the journey to recovery is longer than others. Remind your loved one that they are a fighter with a hand-stamped pendant, featuring inspiring words like “Warrior,” “Breathe,” or “Peace.” Plus, $5 from every purchase will be given back to their outreach programming for at-risk Tanzanian youth, where the founder, Abby, was once an elementary school teacher.
