The three key elements to a thoughtful gift are:
1. Find a gift that sends the right message. Books and Journals
are always a good choice. CareGifting has a variety of books and Journals to choose from. We do our best to stock a wide variety of books but there are times when we might not have exactly what you are looking for. If there is a book that you want to send and we don't have it, we will do our best to go out and locate the book at a local merchant and add it to your order. Please call customer service for assistance.
2. Find a gift that's appropriate for the situation. If someone is recovering after surgery you should not send them candy or flowers. What they really need are comfort items that will assist them in healing, we recommend any of the gift baskets in our After Surgery Gift Baskets
3. Find a gift that fits your budget. Spend an appropriate amount based on your relationship with the recipient and your budget. Look for quality, re-usable items that the recipient will use and not re-gift. CareGifting offers you the ability to Create Your Own
gift basket within your budget. Remember it's not about buying the most expensive basket with the most items inside; it's about giving something meaningful to the recipient that they can use.
For days and possibly weeks, your basket will be in the recipient's home or office. Your gift message will be read over and over again and will be a symbol of your thoughtfulness. The right gift basket idea will make all the difference.
Your girlfriend just had surgery and totally loves yoga, but that doesn't mean you should get her a new yoga mat as an after surgery gift. Instead, seek out something with a more pampering theme- maybe bubble bath, slippers, silk pajamas or an all natural body lotion.Gift Ideas For Children
You can do your best to get them outside and away from the TV, Computer, etc but sometimes that's just what they like and all that they have given the situation. CareGifting offers a selection of journals, drawing books and puzzle books so you can encourage them to explore their creative side. Warming/cooling plush animal wraps are always a hit with young children and tweens and are great gift ideas to send after a tonsillectomy. Shop our children's gifts and create your own special gift basket, birthday gift basket or graduation basket that is tailored to cure boredom or stress relief during get well or after surgery.Gift Basket Ideas for Someone you don't know so well
Sometimes we have to get a gift for someone we don't know that well, a coworker, an employee, the postal man or maybe even your own relative. What you need to do is not select a gift that is too personalized. Socks, journals, crossword puzzle books, healthy snacks, pillows, blankets are all universal items that anyone of any age could enjoy.
Any gift basket idea is a good one! Gift baskets are great for any moment deserving of thanks-thanks for taking care of my cat, sympathy-sorry for your loss, or congratulations-welcome baby Jane! A new job, wedding gift, Easter basket, birthday, house warming,if it comes from you and it comes from the heart, gift baskets are always welcome and always remembered.
