Get-Well Gift and Hip Surgery Recovery – 5 Ideas

Get-Well Gift and Hip Surgery Recovery – 5 Ideas

For someone with hip problems, their hip can be in such pain that they have trouble walking comfortably. And, forget doing any jogging, swimming or hiking.

That is why hip surgery is such a godsend. The replacement hip can restore much of the normal movement that the person had lost over the years. And, it can does so in a way that can render their hip area pain-free.

Of course, as with any surgery, hip surgery should be taken seriously. The recovery period can take from many weeks to up to 6 months (for total hip replacement surgery). Recovery will go smoothly for most patients. However, there may be some pain involved. And, there is always the boredom and mild sense of disorientation that a person in recovery feels.

This is where a well-chosen get-well gift for surgery recovery patients comes in. A close friend, colleague, or family member is likely to receive a wave of appreciation and goodwill from the person in recovery after hip surgery.

If you have questions about a get-well gift and hip surgery recovery, here are 5 ideas that can help:

1. Body pillow:

A body pillow is a great way to get comfortable in bed after hip replacement surgery. A body pillow is shaped a bit like a boomerang: it is long enough to “snuggle” the body around, providing a place to put one’s head. The hip surgery recovery patient can also straddle their legs around the pillow, while laying on his or her side. Before buying this gift, check to see whether they already have one. If not, this makes a great get-well gift.

2. Magazine gift basket:

A gift basket is a lot of fun to receive. Gift baskets have a festive feel and make anyone’s heart race a bit when they receive one. Imagine giving the hip surgery patient you know a gift basket full of their favorite magazines! Be sure to choose a theme, such as men’s hobbies, home improvement, sewing, fashion or electronics, depending upon their interests. In so doing, you are giving them a great way to pass the time.

3. Complete TV show season on DVD:

If you are someone who watches TV or keeps their finger on the pulse of pop culture, you know that there has really been some great television on the air over the past 5 – 10 years. Some Emmy-winning TV series are truly on par with anything you might see on the silver screen. A great gift idea is to buy one or more seasons of an award-winning show on DVD. By choosing a series over the course of one or more seasons, you are giving the person the chance to really “get into” a show and enjoy it. This all makes the recovery time pass by that much more quickly.

4. Plant a tree in his or her name:

Okay, if you or the person in recovery are “save the Earth” types, what better gift than to plant a tree …

I Want To Buy My Spouse A Gift To Show I’m Sorry For Cheating – What’s Best?

I Want To Buy My Spouse A Gift To Show I’m Sorry For Cheating – What’s Best?

I sometimes hear from spouses who want to offer some sort of gift to indicate how sorry they are for cheating or for having an affair. And yet, everything that they consider seems wrong. They want to get the perfect object that shows their sincerity in moving forward. But they aren’t sure what is appropriate.

I heard from a husband who said: “I cheated on my wife and she found out. Honestly, I was considering leaving my wife and being with the other woman. But once my wife found out and I saw the pain that my actions caused her, I changed my mind. Seeing her so vulnerable made me remember the woman I first fell in love with and I decided that I owed it to both of us to try to save our marriage. Much to my shock, she agreed to give me that chance. The fact that she is willing to take another chance on me humbles me. I want to get her something to show her how grateful I am. I asked one of her best friends what she might like and the friend told me that I am treading on thin ground because my wife is going to read too much into anything that I might chose. Is she right? I don’t know what to do at this point.”

What Your Spouse Really Wants: While I think it’s touching when a spouse wants to show their love for the other, I agreed with the friend that the wrong choice could make the situation worse. I need to be honest right now. As a spouse who has been cheated on, I can tell you that what your spouse wants isn’t jewelry or one more trinket. What your spouse really wants is to have their marriage back. They want to feel like they can trust you again. They want reassurance that you still desire them and that you won’t cheat again. They want to feel your genuine affection. They want for you to do whatever you need to do in order to help them heal or to recover from this. Frankly, these things would be more meaningful than any trinket could even be.

Make Sure That Any Gift Shows Your Spouse How Much You Understand And Appreciate Them: I do understand and respect that you want to make a gesture to show your spouse how important they are to you and how committed you are moving forward. In that case, you need to give this serious consideration. You don’t want to send the wrong idea. You don’t want to just give them a “guilt gift” that you didn’t think very deeply about. Many men will think that they will be covered if they just buy their wife expensive jewelry. I suppose this works for some women, but many wives will assume that you think that you can just buy your way out of this and that is not the message that you want to send.

It’s my …

Buying Jewelry For Your Girlfriend – A Practical Guide

Buying Jewelry For Your Girlfriend – A Practical Guide

If you’re a man, you’re probably not much into jewelry. Most men, by and large, aren’t. Nevertheless, maybe it’s your girlfriend’s birthday or it’s Christmas or (heaven forbid!) it’s Valentine’s Day and you’ve decided you want to give your special girl the gift of jewelry. Good for you! It’s a wonderful choice, assuming, of course, that you already know that your girlfriend loves and appreciates nice jewelry. Okay, so now what?

Step One: Decide how much you can comfortably spend. Or, if you’re rolling in money, decide how much you’re willing to spend. If you’re barely scraping by, don’t beat yourself over a lack of funds or get the idea that unless you put yourself into dire financial straights over this purchase, you aren’t loving her enough. That’s nonsense, and any woman worth her salt will tell you so. When it comes to jewelry, we gals know that it’s not a guy’s cup of tea, that they are out of their depth and probably afraid they’ve made the wrong choice. We get it. And we appreciate the fact that you’re willing to try.

Step Two: Once you’ve got an idea of your budget, decide what form this jewelry gift will take. Will it be earrings? A necklace? A bracelet? A ring? If money’s a concern, earrings or a pendant necklace, especially if we’re talking about fine jewelry, are probably the most affordable pieces of jewelry. For the uninitiated, you can translate ‘fine jewelry’ to mean anything that has a K in it – as in 10k gold, 12k gold, 14k gold, etc. Earrings are pretty self-explanatory. A pendant necklace usually means a precious or semi-precious stone or two in a gold or silver setting, suspended by a chain of the same metal.

By the way, there is absolutely nothing wrong with opting for a piece of fine jewelry that’s 12k gold or even 10k. The gold content is distributed throughout the jewelry piece, so put aside any fears you may have that the gold will ‘wear off.’ If it’s all you can comfortably afford, it’s fine. And it will look good, too. This is supposed to be a token of affection and thoughtfulness, not a test of how much you care nor a measure of how much she’s valued. We’ve got to lose this notion that someone who receives an 18k gold ring is more loved than someone who receives a 10k ring. It’s ridiculous.

If the budget can’t accommodate a gift of fine jewelry, then consider Sterling silver jewelry. There are many beautiful Sterling silver pieces available, many with gorgeous semiprecious gemstones. Or you can stick with straight Sterling, no gemstones, and find your dollar will go quite far. For the same amount of money you’ll pay for a pair of, say, diamond stud earrings, you can probably buy your girl a completely new wardrobe of Sterling silver jewelry.

When you deciding on what kind of jewelry to buy, please take your girlfriend’s style into consideration. If …

The Different Types of Corporate Gifts

The Different Types of Corporate Gifts

The Importance of Gift Cards

The Importance of Gift Cards

Retail companies find the use of gift cards necessary to gain more customers and customer loyalty. These are given during holidays like Christmas or during birthdays. It is because some people find it hard to find the most appropriate gift to buy. It is the next best thing to do by the gift giver. It would not only save the gift giver time and effort but the giver is assured the recipient will love the things bought from the card given. So instead of giving money, it is best next thing to give.

It is pretty much like a credit card, it has a magnetic strip found at the back part of the card which logs the amount of purchased items. A gift card can be used when someone pays for a specific amount on the card. A $1000 worth can go a long way in purchasing items that you wish to buy. It is also pretty much the same as gift vouchers except it is printed on a card instead of paper.

There are many pages in the internet which offer its valuable website visitors a chance to get one. Be very keen in choosing websites which offer free gift cards because there are websites that give out fake cards. Aside from the internet, these are also given out in:

• Accumulated credit card points, most credit card companies issue particular points equivalent to the amount purchased using the credit card. The more frequent the credit card is used, the more points you can get. These credit card companies would delegate specific amount that would make the credit card user eligible to get one for free.

• Attending trades shows and expos are also one of the popular ways of getting one. Normally, participating companies in the trade shows give out business and gift cards this would encourage trade show visitors to visit their stores. Sometimes these companies would require a person to answer particular questionnaires and survey forms in order to get one.

• Internet advertisements by different internet companies offer these cards by simply becoming a part or member of their social networking sites. It could be as simple as liking their Facebook fan page or following the company in the Twitter community.

• Checking out blogs of either commercial or personal blogs often give free stuff. When you do blog hopping, you may find several blog contests that give free gift cards as their prize. These are randomly given to blog visitors.

• Look for a website or fan page like Free Gift Card Page to get your gift cards. Various companies create a tie-up with FB fan page like this because all they need to do is to give the cards and let the Fan Page administrator to the marketing.…

The Difference Between a Bonus and a Gift and the Appropriate Time for Each

The Difference Between a Bonus and a Gift and the Appropriate Time for Each

Do you know the difference between a bonus and a gift? You may have seen a sales page or an advertisement on TV where they list all the bonuses that come with your purchase. A bonus is something that is expected. It’s already been advertised ahead of time and it’s packaged with a purchase.

A bonus might include a special report, CDs, a workbook, a strategy session, or other things like that. It might be offered for a limited time. The important thing to remember about a bonus is that it is not a gift. It adds value to whatever you’re offering but it is not a gift.

You may be wondering when you can call something a gift. A gift should be unexpected. It should be a surprise. It should not be a marketing piece or an educational product. It should be something the receiver would enjoy receiving.

You might think that the products and things that you’ve created in your business are wonderful and valuable, and they are. But don’t offer them as a gift, use them as a bonus.

Think about what your client would want to receive as a gift, not just as an extra bonus. It should never be a product from your business. If it’s a product from your business, then it’s a bonus. It becomes a marketing piece because it probably has your logo on it and your contact information, but it’s not a gift.

There is a place for both bonuses and gifts. Bonuses add value to what you offer your clients. They can help sweeten the deal and make it more enticing to buy. They help your customers feel like they are getting more than what they are paying for.

There is also a place for gifts. Gifts should be used to thank, to show appreciation, and to reward your most loyal clients. If you really want to show appreciation to your clients, make sure you take the time to give a real and sincere gift, not just a bonus. When you send a gift, it makes the recipient feel valued. It makes them feel that you care about them. When they feel valued by your business, they are more likely to stay longer and refer their friends to you.

The key difference between a bonus and a gift is a bonus you’re expecting, it’s advertised. A gift is a surprise. It’s unexpected. It will make your clients feel valued and special.…

Gift For a Throat Cancer Patient – 3 Tips For Finding the Right Gift

Gift For a Throat Cancer Patient – 3 Tips For Finding the Right Gift

When people talk about throat cancer, they are usually referring to one of two types of conditions: a. head and neck cancer, which can affect the lip, mouth, nasal cavity and related organs and tissues, or, b. esophageal cancer, which is a malignancy of the esophagus.

In either case, throat cancer is something to be taken very seriously by both the patient and their friends, family members, and acquaintances. Fortunately, there are various cancer treatment methods for throat cancer patients, including radiation, chemotherapy, surgery and other specialized treatments.

If you know someone who has contracted throat cancer, you probably would very much like to cheer him or her up. And, your instinct is spot on. They likely need some cheering up. If there is anything as hard as having cancer itself, some forms of the throat cancer treatments themselves are good candidates. Both the throat cancer itself and the treatments can wreak havoc on the mind and body.

Happily, you can contribute to keeping the cancer patient’s spirits up with the right get-well-soon gift. Giving a gift to a cancer patient whom you know and care about is a great way to show that you wish them the best. A well-chosen get-well-soon gift can lift the spirits, calm the nerves and warm the heart.

If you are looking for a gift for a throat cancer patient, here are 3 tips for finding just the right gift:

Tip #1: Your gift choice should be sensitive to their medical condition:

Throat cancer patients often have dietary and physical restrictions given their medical condition. For example, certain types of foods are likely to be avoided, especially during treatment cycles. Also, the treatments may be making him or her more tired than usual. So, of course, you will want to avoid any gift that might cause him or her to strain themselves when using it.

Tip #2: Find something that is joyful and uplifting:

Going through cancer can be a dark time in someone’s life. Even people with generally sunny and positive attitudes may be going through a lot on the inside. The person may be more sensitive than usual. Your gift should bring joy to the person and should be uplifting. While you do not need your gift to get “all mushy,” anything that can bring humor, hope, and joy will be appreciated.

Tip #3: Take into account their living environment and situation:

Make sure you choose a gift that can be used given the person’s current living environment and overall situation. Take into account the size of their living quarters, how much room they have, and whether or not they have regular access to the outdoors. If you are not sure about these things, ask a spouse or another friend or family member about any potential restrictions of this nature.

Follow these 3 tips to find the right gift for a throat cancer patient.…

If your company is coming on up their 30th anniversary, then you need to start thinking about gifts. What kind of gift would be good for your 30th corporate anniversary gift?

Years of Service Plaque

You can get these in acrylic, glass or just about any other material you would like. You can personalize these per person or you can just have the company name on it. Many come with special sayings and some type of clip art that has the amount of years of service. These range from $20-$70 and are very practical.

Memory Lane Photo

These are a bit pricier, but defiantly a cool 30th corporate anniversary gift. These are large poster pictures that have all your progress on them. The beginning of the picture would have things like the building designs, car designs, and anything else your corporation started with from the very beginning. The memory lane continues to show picture on how the company continued to grow, until you reach the end, where you show how the company looks now. It’s really a neat poster. These can cost a few hundred dollars.

Personalized Heart Paperweight

These paperweights are unique and can be personalized. Most will come with a note, so you can also personalize that. The heart can usually fit a few lines of text on there. The heart is silver, so it does not look cheaply made. They only cost around $20, so you can purchase a lot if needed.

Dinner

For your 30th corporate anniversary gifts, stay away from the traditional gifts or add a small gift to a dinner package. You can set up a family dinner at a banquet hall, or if your company is smaller, you could rent part of a pool hall and eat and play pool. Using your judgment will be best here, but employees love having a paid for dinner with their family and co workers.

Cookie Baskets

Individual cookie baskets can be made up with your company name on the package and some places will even place the company name on the cookie. You can choose how big you want your baskets to be, and what type of cookies you want. I have seen some places ordered these baskets for everyone, and the basket has the companies name, logo and a funny …
