Gift Ideas For The Home-bound, Ill, Those Hospitilazed, Those Undergoing Chemo

And anyone else you might be visiting  that you want to cheer up.
Yes, I think too much...........about stuff that may not matter. 

tic tacs
lip balm
treats for their furry family
purse tissues
small, bright bouquet
home made soup
favorite hot or cold drink from a fast food place
 stop in for a visit and just talk 
single serving size of sherbet or ice cream
assorted hot drinks for the Keurig (it's nice to offer drinks to visitors)
unscented toiletries
coloring books are all the rage (I don't color)
candy to suck on
ginger ale
ginger candies

While you are visiting offer to:
(maybe JUST DO IT)
clean his/her glasses
water the plants
feed/walk pets
fill the Keurig
wash the dishes
put the dishes away
switch laundry loads
throw clothes in the dryer
fold the laundry
carry something up or downstairs 
take the person shopping, some place fun, go out to lunch

Just some things that popped into my head


  1. Those are all great suggestions, Linda. I think sometimes people stay away and just don't do anything because they don't know what to say or do. I am praying for you!! xo Diana

  2. Excellent tips....Thanks!!! Best coming from someone who KNOWS how it feels. Love, Hugs and prayers.

  3. Thanks for sharing! It is nice to bring or do something that they would like/enjoy.

  4. Linda, Thank you so much for reminding us . It is some times the little things that mean so much. I think also bring toilet tissue and paper towels . Paper plates and bowls. Things that will just help make a person who may not be feeling well , not have to worry. I do believe in jumping right in to do laundry, dishes, sweep and dust. Bless your heart. Love you, xoxo, Susie
