Sympathy Gift Guide

Perhaps the best reason to give a gift is to help lift someone’s mood and get them through a tough time.
Whether it’s an illness, the loss of a loved one or the end of a relationship, your friend will appreciate your
thoughtful gift in their time of need.


Gift Ideas for Someone Sick

The simplest gift for an ill friend is a heartfelt Get Well Soon card. Include a personal sentiment, a thermos
of chicken noodle soup and a bouquet of flowers for the perfect gift. If you want to go the extra mile, create
a personalized care package for your sick friend. The package can include magazines, movies, a blanket,
medicine and whatever else your friend might want or need. Bring your gift by your friend’s home or hand
deliver it to the hospital so you can show you care not only with a gift but with your time. If your friend’s
illness is keeping them from their daily activities, the best gift is offering to help out. Bring over a pre-made
casserole or volunteer to pick up the kids from school.

Gift Ideas for Someone Mourning a Death

The loss of a loved one is a difficult event for all of those involved so it’s important that you keep your gift
respectful. If it’s appropriate, a wonderful gift can be helping to pay for an aspect of the service. You can
offer to buy the floral arrangements for the funeral house or rent the limousine for the processional. You can
also help to celebrate the life of the deceased with a beautiful memorial gift, such as a scrapbook of photos.
Again, offering to help out with daily activities, like grocery shopping, is a great way to show you care and
that you understand what the grieving family needs. If it’s within your budget, consider helping out with a
grand gesture such as flying out a relative for the funeral who couldn’t make it or honoring the deceased
with a legacy gift.

Gift Ideas for Someone Dealing with a Breakup or Divorce

Traditional post-breakup gifts, like ice cream and chocolate, are perfect options for a friend right after a
tough split. You can even put these items together in a gift basket and include some gag gifts like a book of
boyfriends who were worse than hers. If your friend is spending his time moping around the house, give the
gift of escape with a day at the spa, fun new activity like rock climbing or dinner out with friends. Spending
time with people who still care about him and having new experiences are important to help him move on.
And when she is ready to get back out there, great gifts include a trip to the mall to update her wardrobe or
signing her up for a new dating service.
