Get well soon care packages and gift baskets are one of the most amazing things to receive in the mail.
I fully believe that any thoughtful package is amazing, whether it’s for an illness, as a an anniversary gift or just because…. But there is something extra special about getting a get well soon package. Maybe it’s because when you get one it’s because you ready to feel better about something.
Whatever the reason, when you see the face of a family member or someone you care about opening up one of those packages it’s like a light has gone on behind their eyes.
To know that someone out there loves and cares enough to send you one is uplifting and very validating. It makes for a speedy recovery, or at least it feels that way.

A little pampering is often not just a little when you need it so badly.
This may seem like a gift box that is for everyday but that’s the point of it. Sometimes a little distraction goes a long way with kids. Why not get them off the screen and onto some fun activities while you have the chance to?
Hot and cold packs don’t need to be bland or boring. If you’ve ever seen a little kid hug their favorite stuffed animal when they don’t feel good then you know how important it is to make them feel comfortable and engaged so get in on the healing game. I know my kids will lie still and actually keep a cold pack on their heads if I stick it on a soft toy or have them hold a hot washcloth that is wrapped up in their favorite snuggle blanket.
Puppies sometimes need some extra love too. Dog is mans best friend.
If you know a family that has a dog that is going through and injury or having a procedure done then a little thinking of you gift with a dog theme would definitely be a welcome surprise.
Sometimes the best medicine for a sick friend (or dog) is a simple reminder that you are thought of a cared for.
It doesn’t always have to be perfect or even the best idea ever. But a good idea is better than no idea. Delicious foods, a relaxing bath, and lots of rest can go a long way when it’s needed.
P.S. Expect a nice thank you text or phone call on delivery day when they finally get to open up their gift box.
