Tonight I'm visiting a friend who's recently home from hospital. I want to slip out of the office this afternoon and get something to bring her, but I'm not sure what.
The last time I was in hospital, all I wanted was for somebody to bring me something real to eat, and then post some sort of notice informing the food people once and for all that I did not want any coffee. (I was desperate for tea and they kept saying they'd bring it, and then turning up with coffee. Torture!) Once I was home, I appreciated the books, magazines and DVDs friends brought over, but I'm not quite sure what this friend likes to read.
I'm waffling between these ideas:
A plant or some flowers (not a particularly inspired choice, but it's spring and she's been stuck indoors),
A pretty bound journal, or
Some interesting and relaxing teas from the market.
Any other fun suggestions? Any great sick-at-home gifts you've gotten? What would you want?
