During the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us or our loved ones have been impacted. We all hope and wish everyone remains safe during this trying time, but realize that due to the scope of the virus, a lot of people have become sick. If you’d like to do something for your close friends or family that have tested positive and endured the dangerous symptoms, then a get well gift can mean the world to her. We all appreciate gifts, but also appreciate the sentiment that people our thinking about us and our health. However, it can be hard to know what to get. You want to help your loved one and put a smile on her face. You definitely don’t want to overwhelm her or make her feel like she has to repay your generosity. Here’s how to choose thoughtful get well gift ideas along with some ideas to get you started on your search.
How to Choose a Covid Get Well Gift
When it comes to choosing the a Covid get well gift, you have to consider the severity of the illness. For example, many typical get well gifts focus on things someone likes. If your friend had a severe case, yet likes exercise, an active gift basket doesn’t make sense because they are likely still suffering from some fatigue. However, a book about exercise might make sense because it could encourage them to focus on recovery and get back to the gym or on the road. To be safe, Covid get well gifts should focus on relaxation and warmth that invokes comfort. Think about a cozy bathrobe or a pair of slippers that allows for comfort while likely still fatigued and stuck at home. Or maybe an at-home spa kit that helps her feel at ease while she’s getting back on her feet.
Alternatively, food always goes hand-in-hand with comfort. Gift baskets or food delivery options, such as an arrangement from Edible Arrangements® provide a sweet treat and she doesn’t need to leave home to enjoy them. Additionally, at Edible Arrangements®, we remain diligent on our safety protocols so you can be confident in the safety of our team and products. Or, choose a cup of chicken noodle soup or a package of extra-delicious freshly baked cookies. Of course, if your friend has a favorite treat or meal, then deliver it to her home. The choice is yours.
Alternatively, you could choose to give her something to do to pass the time while she recuperates. This is a great choice, especially if she’s laid up in bed recovering from an injury or surgery. Think of a book that you recently loved or consider a journal to keep track of her thoughts. Or, maybe even challenge her a little with a difficult puzzle. Any one of these gifts can help pass the time while she’s getting back on her feet.
