June 8, 2007, Newsletter Issue #65: Sympathy Gift Baskets for the Homebound

Tip of the Week

Do you know someone who is homebound because of a sickness or injury? Being confined to a bed or couch can be difficult, so help the days pass a little easier by creating a sympathy gift basket. Give your friend or relative some fun activities to do, such as crossword or word search puzzles, or give him or her a few new magazines. Search for the latest novels of the patient's favorite author, and add a few movies to the mix. Place some soothing herbal teas and flavored coffees into the sympathy gift basket, along with some gourmet popcorn and mixed nuts. Sometimes music is just the thing to ease those stressful moments that being confined can bring, so add a couple of calming compact discs to the gift basket, too. Finally, place a scented candle in the middle of the basket, and tie a large colorful bow on top.
