We're often asked for advice and inspiration on what to buy a loved one in need of a little TLC for all kinds of reasons - the flu, a broken leg, a difficult pregnancy, or just having a hard time right now - as well as those going through cancer treatment.
So here are our Top 10 Get Well Gift Ideas.
1 - Cosy Bed Socks
These Cosy Mohair Bed Socks are a lovely get well present. Tied in a ribbon, displayed in a gift box and available in a range of colours for him and for her, these treats for the feet will be very welcomed by someone feeling under the weather (why not take a look at our Bed Sock Gift Sets too, which also include a mini chocolate hot water bottle!)
2 - Poorly Sick Tray
Introducing the Poorly Sick Tray - the perfect get well gift to bring a smile to a loved ones face.
This high quality and sturdy tray includes a spot for everything an invalid might need. Bell - check, tissues - check, a space for some brave little soldiers & finally space for a bowl as they could probably 'manage a little soup' while watching a 'bit of daytime TV'. Choose from a range of bells to suit the recipient's tastes and make this a really personal present.
3 - Chocolate Messages
When the going gets tough, it's important to show your support to those who need it. Our thoughtful chocolate gift will give them a boost and let them know that you're thinking of them.
Made up of individual squares of delicious Belgian milk chocolate, these Chocolate Messages can be as sentimental or as silly as you like.
4 - Nightwear
A fresh pair of PJs or pretty dressing gown is a lovely treat when spending time in hospital or recuperating at home. Take a look at our Nightwear - the perfect addition to a get well hamper.
Our range of button front pyjamas are great for men and women who may struggle with their mobility, and our light cotton kimonos are cool in summer but a lovely extra layer in the chillier months.
5 - Pampering Gift Sets
When we're feeling poorly or feeling down, we often forget to look after ourselves - just when we need it the most! Encourage your loved one to take time to pamper themselves with some of our lovely Pampering Gift Sets.
Jam packed with natural toiletries, pretty scented candles and other safe essentials, each pamper package shows you've really thought about what your patient needs (and we've listed what makes each set so great, and who it's perfect for, beneath it's description).
6 - Puzzles and Puzzle Books
For those who are unwell, time spent recuperating can be long and often boring. Gifts to help keep poorly patients entertained are a thoughtful present for all ages. Our wide range of Jigsaw Puzzles will mean you're sure to find something to raise a smile, and our small Puzzle Books are perfect for using at home or popping in a bag for a hospital visit.
7 - Mindfulness Gifts
Mindfulness has been shown to help with a number of conditions such as anxiety, depression, stress and even some physical conditions such as chronic pain. It can also help in other situations such as coping with serious illness, bereavement, insomnia and other stressful events.
It can be really hard to let someone you love know that you are thinking of them when they are going through stressful and anxious times as it's difficult to understand something you can't see. So we've chosen a lovely selection of Mindfulness Gifts including useful books, calming and relaxing candles, journals for noting worries and thoughts and many more thoughtful gifts and cards for you to choose from.
8 - Personalised Mug Gift Sets
It's the British way to believe everything is made better with a cup of tea. And whilst it might not be the answer to all ailments, we're certainly fond of a cuppa here!
With our Personalised Mugs you can include the recipient's name and a heartfelt, meaningful or funny message to create a unique and thoughtful gift that they can treasure forever. And with lots of small Extras to pop inside and create a thoughtful gift set, you'd be a MUG not to! (do you see what we did there?)
9 - Children's Presents and Activity Packs
After receiving calls for help from the families and friends of children with illnesses, we introduced a range of practical presents and gifts to help entertain them during hospital stays, treatment sessions and while recuperating at home...plus the odd treat!
Choose from a range of Arts and Crafts Kits, Cuddly Companions and Chocolatey Goodies (if it's OK with Mum and Dad, of course!) - all perfect distractions for poorly kids.
10 - Original Get Well Cards
Whilst there are plenty of generic "Get Well" cards available in the shops, not every situation suits this sentiment and it can be tricky to find one that's appropriate. We have a range of cards that can help you find just the right words, or to be honest when you can't.
All of our Get Well Cards can be sent to you, or directly to the recipient with a hand written personal message of your choice.
