Get Well Gift Baskets are an extremely popular alternative to bouquets of flowers as they are both thoughtful and practical, and there are also LOTS of variants available. Well at BG there are!
Most people tend to favour fresh fruit as it is healthy and easy to eat if you are feeling under the weather. Although sometimes a get well gift can be for someone with an injury rather than an illness, and so maybe they'd rather cheer themselves up with some sweet treats or a bottle of wine! Or perhaps someone is just feeling a bit down and in need of a pick me up & in this case a pampering/spa basket might work well. If you can't decide, then a little bit of everything can be nice & our most popular get well baskets tend to include some fresh fruit, a magazine, some snacks, a puzzle and perhaps a teddy or facemask.
If you can't find a basket that is quite right, then there is always the option to Create Your Own.
This is what a lady, Lisa, in Liverpool did lately when she was tasked with arranging a 'Thinking of You' gift from a group of colleagues to their good friend and workmate Dan. I remember this gift basket well as we got in touch with Lisa to check she wanted the floral balloon design OK. It turned out that yes she did, as she preferred that design and we think she created a really lovely get well gift.
Here's a list of what Lisa selected for Dan's basket:
Food & Drink:
100% Pure Coconut Water 1L
Kilbeggan Organic Porridge Oats 500g
SD Bells Belfast Tea Carton - Teabags
Cadbury Chocolate Easter Egg
Sweet Boutique Novelty Marshmallows 175g
Ditty’s Bakery Moist Fruit Cake 400g
Candle "Special Message" - With Love
Luxury Get Well Gift Cards
Adult's Get Well Balloon - Floral
Mens Monthly Magazine: Men's Health/GQ
Shampoo & Body Wash for men from Scaramouche + Fandango
Deep Pore Cleansing Peel Off Mask For Men
Massage Oil Essential Oil Blended 100ml
Deep Fabric Lined Gift Basket
We think Dan must be really missed around his workplace as they included a special "With Love" candle and wrote in their message that they loved him lots and hoped he had a swift recovery so as he was back soon to "king it again DLo style."
