14 Ideas for a Comforting Care Package for a Sick Loved One (+ A Giveaway!) | The Health Sessions.

Since I’m looking for more generalized ideas, I’m sticking with the following items:

  • a journal

  • a handwritten message, likely inside of a greeting card

Of course for friends and family members I know more intimately some of the other suggestions in the article would be easier to use.
