A get-well gift shows someone in the hospital that you care. There are many gifts that can cheer up a recovering friend or family member. Personalised and fun gifts, however, can be creative alternatives to traditional ones. By thinking beyond the hospital gift shop, you can give a unique gift that communicates your warm wishes and will be appreciated.


Though many hospitals require patients to wear hospital gowns for practical reasons, you can make someone's hospital stay more comfortable by giving comfort items. For example, you can give a friend or loved one a fluffy robe, cosy slippers or a colourful blanket. Not only will your friend or family member feel more comfortable while hospitalised, but he or she can also take the gift home and continue to enjoy it.


A humorous book or gift may raise a loved one's spirits and speed up the healing process. Humorous gifts, such as Freudian-slippers and positive half-full glasses are available for purchase through websites like perpetualkid.com and philosophersguild.com.


While your friend or loved one waits to be discharged from the hospital, prevent him or her from getting bored by giving the gift of entertainment. Help your loved one pass the time and feel connected with friends by making a unique slideshow or series of videos offering your friend well wishes.
