Like we mentioned before, being in bed all day is no fun at all. And apart from the whole bored out of their mind problem, there is also the problem of them being uncomfortable, lying around the whole day. Comfortable bed sheets, heat-able pillows (in place of hot water bottles), warm and comfortable bed socks, and even bed wear suitable for wearing all day long will make excellent gifts.

Gift selecting is no rocket science. However, it does take some practice to get perfect. Here are a few tips on how to select the perfect gift.
- Know who exactly you’re buying the gift for – if you’re doing last minute Christmas shopping for a big crowd of gift receivers, it can be tempting to just randomly buy things, then think of who to give what. Unfortunately, this doesn’t usually end well. Your only option here is to opt for something impersonal; like gift cards. However, know that this doesn’t suit for close family members or friends; not unless the gift cad happens to come from a boutique or restaurant they are partial to.
- Take their hobbies and interests into consideration – this obviously means you have to pay enough attention to your gift receiver so you know their hobbies and interests. Catering to their interests can be fun to you as well. For example, if you have a doctor friend/relative, consider looking into doctors bags; the traditional kind. We are sure they’ll get a kick out of it…like someone who has an interest for mystery novels will get have fun with a detective cap.
- Try to think of things that will be of use for them – while something superficial like a detective’s hat might be a fun gift to receive, it will not be particularly useful. Keep your gift receiver’s daily life and work schedule in mind if you plan on gifting something useful. For example, something like a vaccine fridge will be useful for someone with complicated daily medicines or vaccinations, while a comfy pair of stylish work shoes will be more useful for someone who is always on their feet.
- Keep the gift receiver’s age in mind – electronics is a gift option that many people now instinctively opt to; simply because how readily available it is, and because how it’s a nearly always a fool proof gift. However, it’s important that you keep the age of your gift receiver in mind when thinking of such a gift. If your gift receiver is too young; you might end up spoiling their eye sight or hearing. If the gift receiver is elderly, chances are that complicated electronics can be just a little too advance for them.
- Try to think out of the box – to select the perfect gift, it’s important that you think out of the box. If you gift something that is predictable, or even worse, if you happen to gift the same kind of gifts every year, chances are that your gifts might not be as well received as you hope. So be different.
- Don’t be afraid to experiment with your gifts – it’s easy to fall back to the familiar; especially when it comes to gifts. When a gift is received well, it can be tempting to fall back to it. However, think of your gift giving as a moment to introduce something new to your gift receiver. Who knows…? You might even introduce them to a life long passion or hobby.
