Hugs, Kisses, and Get Well Wishes!

Picking the perfect "get well" gift can be tricky because it really must be customized to the recipient's exact situation. Are they in the hospital or home? In bed or mobile? In the mood to eat? Can they focus on a book or TV show?

Balloons, framed family pics, and flowers usually work well, unless the recipient has allergies. My personal favorite is a bouquet of Sunflowers...simple, bright, and smiley!

If the person is home OR if the family is spending most of their time as caregivers, then how about the gift of home-cooked meals? I always try to send freezable meals just in case the family is inundated with food or simply isn't hungry the night you drop off the meal. One of our family favorites is Barefoot Contessa's Chicken Chili. Somewhat time consuming, but definitely worth it!
