With Christmas just around the corner, gift buying is at the forefront of everybody's minds, but it isn't only during the holiday season that a great gift can lift the spirits of a recipient. Giving gifts is one of the best feelings in the world, and this feeling is increased tenfold when you have really put some thought into what you are buying or making for a loved one. Thoughtful gifts really are the best kinds of gifts, especially when it comes to get well gifts for somebody who is in great need of cheering up. Here are some perfect ideas for thoughtful gifts and get well gifts for Gift It Friday.
It may be an old-school option, but there is something really special about giving somebody a mixtape filled with songs that they love or songs that mean something special to your friendship or relationship.
Write A Poem
Rather than saying I love you with money, say I love you with artistic effort in the form of an original poem. It doesn't have to rhyme, it doesn't have to be Shakespeare, all that matters is that is comes from the heart!
How about a few homemade vouchers that promise outings that you can go on with your gift recipient? From seeing a movie to going to brunch to going out on a date, just think of fun things you can do together. They can cash in a voucher whenever they are feeling low!
There is something classically fun about a puzzle, and it's a thoughtful gift for somebody who needs cheering up. It helps to take a person's mind off of the real world and encourages them to get lost in the intricacies of the pieces they are trying to find and fit together!
If they need cheering up, create something that will help them to remember better times by putting together a wonderful photo collage that displays all of their family and friends in different situations and locations. It's a gift that will brighten up a room on the wall, and brighten up the mood of the recipient!
We all love a good cup of tea or coffee, and we spend more time with our favourite mugs than we realise! Cheer someone up with a shiny new mug that boasts a positive or inspirational slogan as its main design. Every time they head to the kitchen for a cup of comforting tea, they will be boosted by the message and also by the memory that they were gifted the mug by a friend who really cares about them.
Homemade Bath Soaps
There are hundreds of amazing DIY soap tutorials online, so why not make a batch of your own special brand and gift some to a person who you think deserves a long, luxurious soak in the tub? Sure, store brand products are good, but the love and attention that is added to bespoke bath soaps make the experience that bit more special!
