15 Practical, Helpful Gift Ideas for a Sick or Injured Loved One
There are plenty of things you can do to help out when the people you care about are sick, injured, or recovering from an illness or surgery—whether it's bring over meals, help walk their dog, or send a sweet card or gift to let them know you're thinking of them.
Care package ideas are great if you're packing up a whole box to send your far-flung (or quarantined) buddy, and flowers or food are traditional gift ideas for people who are sick or injured.
But some of the best gifts for sick people or quarantined friends can be practical, comforting, and home-focused: You want to encourage your friend or family member to stay home, rest, and get healthy again. Even if you can't be there to give them a hand, these gifts can really help them out.
