What’s The Best Get Well Gifts For The Holiday Season?
Scratching your head over what to get that special someone this year? You’re not alone – finding a great gift (one they’re sure to love and one you feel good about giving) can be a challenge, especially when you’re gifting from across the miles. Throw in a recipient in delicate health and things get even more complicated!
What to Get a Convalescing Friend or Family Member
Gifts of flowers and plant gifts are the traditional choice for get well gifts and sympathy gifts. But if you’re looking for something a bit more unique, and/or something that’s more in keeping with the holiday season, food gifts are a great way to go. When you’re combining a get well gift and holiday gift, however, you want to choose carefully – meat and cheese gift baskets make great Thanksgiving gifts or game day ensembles, but they can be a bit heavy for someone who is recovering from an illness.
Give the Gift of Choice!
Gourmet food gifts are almost always welcome year-round. When putting together gift boxes for friends who are or have been unwell, your best bet is to go with an assortment of goodies. When you include variety of items inside a gift basket (such as a selection of fresh fruit gifts), you’re sure to appeal to every taste. Even better, a larger assortment lets you provide treats to everyone in your recipient’s household, so your thoughtfulness goes even further.
For instance, Pittman & Davis’s own Sweet Surprises Christmas Gift Bag is sure to be the Christmas gift everyone in the family will love! Succulent, healthy citrus fruit is paired with seasonal cookie gifts so every taste is satisfied.
Something for Every Holiday
Fruit baskets don’t just make great Christmas gifts – they’re great ways to celebrate any holiday and any season! A box of pear and apple gifts taste of fall while they help keep the doctor away, and ones that include cheese gifts make especially nice pairings.
Sweets for the Sweet
When Valentine’s Day approaches, candy gifts might be the first things that come to mind. But in addition to a moderate helping of sweet candy, how about choosing a gift box that includes sweet fruit, as well? Such a gift is sure to be a hit with everyone from health professionals to health nuts!
For something more savory, consider assorted nut gift baskets – this kind of snack always comes in handy on game nights. And while meat gifts might not seem sweet, a meat gift basket can be, because it gives the recipient something to serve that they didn’t have to work to prepare!
For the beach lover on your gift list, a selection of tropical fruits including mango and pineapple gifts are sure to inspire visions of blue water and swaying palms. Such a gift can prove a special delight to the beach lover who’s on the mend after an illness, because it will introduce peaceful thoughts and inspiring visualization, as well as lots of vitamins!
Go with a gift basket; wrap up your holiday shopping! A unique fruit basket or gift box from Pittman & Davis will suit everyone on your gift list this year.
