The thing about a get well gift is you never know when you’re going to need it. When you find out a close friend or family member is under the weather, you know you want to do something special, but what?

Perhaps one of the best things to do is to think of things that make you feel better when you’re not at your best. Often when you don’t feel well, small luxuries can do wonders for your mood. Need some ideas to get your started? Here’s a few suggestions for quick get well gifts ideas under $25.


If your friend or family member isn’t feeling well and is trapped at home, a pair of slippers is a great get well gift. Slippers check off a couple needs in the get well gift category.

First off, slippers are comfortable. When you don’t feel well, comfort is of the utmost importance. Even if your sick friend already has a pair of slippers, it’s great to receive something new.

Slippers are also practical. It’s something she can use now and in the future. Some of the best gifts are the ones you can use on a daily basis.

Homemade soup & a soup mug

Got a favorite homemade soup recipe you love to have when you’re not feeling well? Why not whip it up and take it over to your friend’s house along with a new soup mug. Soup mugs are great, because they make spoons optional. Your friend can sip her way back to better health with your comforting homemade soup.

Relaxing bath products

Many people enjoy hot showers or warm bathes when they are sick. If your friend or family member falls into this category, getting them a relaxing bath product may do the trick. This can be anything from bath oils, to an invigorating body wash or body scrub. The smells of a refreshing bath product can reinvigorate someone who’s under the weather and make them feel pampered.
