"Get Well Soon" Care Packages

It seems like a lot of people around me are having surgery or have made emergency trips to the hospital lately.  My mom had rotator cuff surgery last week, and one of my best friends will be having eye surgery next week.  After my mom had surgery, I realized there were a lot of things that I could have given her ahead of time that would have made things easier on her.  So I will definitely be prepared for my best friend's eye surgery!  If someone you know is hospitalized, needs surgery, or is just super sick, here are some helpful hints on items to include in a gift basket for them.

I've had my fair share of surgeries, medical procedures, and hospital stays.  These make up remover wipes are a lifesaver, especially when you have to wait so many days before you're allowed to bathe!

Again, a lifesaver when you can't wash your hair or just don't have the energy to.  It's the only kind of dry shampoo that I use, and it's a plus that it's super cheap!

Don't forget about including snacks to take medication with!  Other snack recommendations are pretzel crisps & veggie straws.

Depending on your budget, you may want to include some comfy jammies!

Other Items to Think about Including:
- magazines

Then throw it all together in a cute reusable bag!

Anything I'm forgetting?  I hope everyone is having a great Thursday!

  1. I wish I had someone make me one of these! This is such a great and thoughtful idea!

  2. A good pair of PJs are really a good idea. I used to wear old t-shirts and the like before "investing" in PJs (they aren't even expensive but they are proper PJs). They make me feel so much better! =)

  3. it's weird i nearly had to go to the hospital the other day!! this is such a great idea!!


  4. A good book! I was in the hospital for two weeks last summer and the books my mom brought up helped so much with the boredom.

  5. This is a great idea! I think comfy jammies/slippers are a must! So is dry shampoo.

  6. This is such a good idea! I like the idea of the makeup remover wipes and dry shampoo!


  7. I'm so sorry to hear that! That's very sweet of you, though:)


  8. These are great! My friends put together gift baskets for me after I had my surgery, but my absolute favorite thing that people brought me was fresh flowers. I could move enough to get myself outside, so it was nice to have the outside brought to me!
