9 Heartfelt Get Well Soon Gifts That Are Better Than Flowers
From the softest socks to a Get Well Soon hamper, brighten up someone’s day and show them that you care. Here are 9 gift ideas to make recovery that much easier.
A good cup of tea solves everything, so if you have a friend who isn’t feeling too well, sending this hamper may help.
During their time off work, laid out on the sofa, they can enjoy a nice cup of English Breakfast or Earl Grey tea accompanied by a beautifully rich Tregroes toffee waffle, a delicious all-butter shortbread biscuit or a slice of the sublime apricot and ginger cake.
If you’re homesick you can feel under the weather so support an old friend in their predicament with this brilliant box of British delights.
If they are genuinely ill though, there’s popcorn a-plenty for them to munch on while watching a TV movie at one in the afternoon and some crumbly Cotswold fudge for when they need something a little sweeter.
If they loved jelly beans when they were younger, then they’re in luck. The Natural Candy Shop’s bag of jellied treats will give them flash backs to their youth spent in a British sweet shop and have them up on their feet in no time.
Chocolate can make everything better, so when you want to wish someone well, send them a big box of the finest chocolate treats.
If you gift this Get Well Soon hamper, they’ll be on the road to recovery with delights such as orange peel dipped in rich dark chocolate and beautifully light Monty Bojangle’s truffles.
There are two different flavours of Willie’s Cacao chocolate which is brilliantly pure and a tin of top-quality hot chocolate from Chocca Mocca that will soothe them to sleep.
- Cookie Doe London: Edible cookie dough (Gift wrapped 3 pack) – £18

Available in over 10 flavours, you can tailor this gift to your struggling friend’s taste. Sending this gift can be very personal and it shows them that you understand what they need.
- Oo&Ahh: Get well soon giant chocolate chip – £6.95
