Prescription to Impress: Get Well Gifts to Soothe a Worried Mind
Three things happened all at the same time that morning.
My daughter Lydia got home early from school, bringing the flu along with her. I cut my hand on some broken glass, and a call came in that grandma had fallen and was in the hospital!
Needless to say, we were going to need some get-well gifts very soon.
Without further ado we hopped in the car and sped over to the hospital!
The first thing we did was check to make sure grandma’s fall wasn’t serious and thankfully she was well enough to be scheduled for release tomorrow. After they stitched me up and got some flu medicine for Lydia we walked over to Grandma’s room. I pondered some possible get well gifts on the way there.
Even though it was just a back sprain grandma was her usual worrywart self and not in the best spirits. Lydia was well enough to entertain her with some songs from her new music player while I figured this was a great opportunity to track down some get well gifts.
We needed to bring up her mood sooner rather than later but I knew finding something that could be delivered same day was going to be tricky.
I whipped out my smartphone and did some searching. Each company required multiple days to send out anything, what was I going to do!
Just as I was about to throw up my hands in defeat I came across a website for GiftTree.com. I immediately loved how easy the site was to use, everything was clearly laid out and distinguishable.
It only took seconds to discover that they specialized in what looked to be some truly amazing get well gifts. And they had same day delivery!
I found an extravagant looking fruit basket and was about to order it but then I saw an option for fruit AND gourmet and it looked frankly stunning. By the time I had it ordered and ready to be delivered today my watch had barely even moved! Lydia and grandma were still sharing headphones and in the midst of some head bobbing, so I took the time to check out some other follow up gifts.
A pair of gorgeously textured lavender spa booties stood out immediately and I knew they would be perfect for grandma. Then I came upon an old-fashioned medicine cabinet stocked full of gourmet treats and goodies. This thing was amazing!
The email confirmations for all the gifts came through just as I looked up and noticed that grandma was starting to get worn out from Lydia’s pop music. We left to get some prescriptions filled and by the time we came back to grandma’s room the get well fruit and gourmet basket had already arrived!
Grandma’s mood changed drastically the second she saw the basket and we all sat together and tore into it. Succulent fresh fruits, delicious gourmet cookies, crackers, cheeses, the basket seemed to be never-ending!
We had all eaten our fill long before the basket was empty so we left the rest with the nursing staff. They were almost as impressed as grandma was!
One of grandma’s sayings is that the key to a healthy body is a healthy mind and the get-well gift basket she received could not have made a better point of that. Just one day later she was back on her feet and just as active as ever.
When the spa booties came she must’ve thanked me a dozen times, and when Lydia’s medicine cabinet arrived I became dad of the year! Thanks to GiftTree.com, our whole family was brought closer together and what could’ve been an ordeal became a pleasure.
