How to Make a Get Well Basket

A gift is something that shows you care! It brings a smile to the face of the person receiving it and for those who are ill, gifts are really special and can help them recover quickly. A get well gift basket is one such token of affection that cheers up the recipient and diverts attention from the mundane hospital routine, involving the regular doctor and staff visits. In addition to being an extremely touching gesture, a get well basket is exceptionally quick to make.

    Next, choose an appropriate wrapping sheet and cover the base of the container with this sheet (there is no need to cover the base if you are gifting it in a pouch).

    Finally, wrap it up with nicely colored tulle so that the items do not fall out. Tie it up with raffia strands and don’t forget to tag it with a get well soon message!
