Initially I had planned on packing this all in a nice little basket, but as the gift grew and grew I found I didn't have a basket this size! I tied a cute tag to each item and packed them inside a gift bag tied with a big colorful bow. Here is what I included:
1. Facial cleansing wipes. Even when I am at home there are times it is a chore for me to make it up to go wash off my face at the end of the day. Lay me up with a post-operative, major leg surgery condition and I may never wash my face at all! Now she can just stash this nearby the bed and freshen up as needed.
|"Because sometimes you just don't want to get up to wash your face."|
|"Because surgery sucks."|
|"For inspiration during recuperation"|
|"A tissue because we will miss you"|
|"Take a moment everyday to relax"|
|"So your lips my shine as you smile through pain"|
|"May you have strength from tip to toe"|
|"To get you back on your feet"|
|"A warm hug from your Kindergarten angels"|
|"Because chocolate makes everything better"|
Total time: It took a little more than an hour to make the tags and pack up the items.
Final verdict: I think it looks like a gift I would want! Hopefully the items are helpful to her and she has a swift recovery.
