Post-surgery can be just as traumatic as pre-surgery and might at times require therapy in fact. Many people who have undergone surgery never had the pleasure of post-surgery trauma and that’s why having a successful surgery is always a cause for celebration for the patient and those around.

Do you know those awkward moments when you go to visit a recovering patient and you both sit staring into the abysmal silence because there’s nothing to talk about? Well, that’s sickening. You could bore the person back into surgery. Break the silence with one of these awesome gift ideas. They will uplift the patient’s mood, lighten up a tense atmosphere, and, the best part; they are all cheaper than the financial and psychological implications of a burial.

There are multiple post-surgery gifts to comfort someone, be it individually, or also for their immediate family. Our list defines ways you can help, right down to the particular kind of surgery.

Choosing the Best Post-Surgery Gifts

A major medical operation is never fun, certainly not for you or your loved ones. But sometimes unforeseen circumstances happen and it’s required. Surgery is often quite traumatic, not just the procedure itself, but the healing process too. When choosing gifts for those who have had surgery it is essential to consider how you can lessen the trauma. Consider their specific bodily needs, pain levels, and ability to access things. Not only does healing from surgery require basic everyday necessities, but also mental stimulation. Lying in one position for several days can result in low mood and energy. When looking for gifts, don’t be afraid to choose more frivolous items or those promoting mental stimulation. 

How We Identified the Best Post-Surgery Gifts

When evaluating the best post-surgery gifts to choose from, we considered mobility, daily needs, mental stimulation, and whether or not the recipient has daily support. We asked questions such as: does the recipient have enough mobility to shower and wash their hair? Is the recipient engaging in stimulating material while on bed rest? Can the recipient make meals or do they require easy access to things? There are many different types of surgeries and therefore a variety of gifts can be tailored to specifics. Our list takes this into account, with gifts suited explicitly to these situations.

A particular consideration was whether the recipient lives alone. Living alone post-surgery can bring some complications, particularly if no help is available. Care packages like dry shampoo, hygiene products, ease of access products, ready-made meals, and snack baskets were all included in our list to help make the process a little smoother. 

Not only did we consider gifts for humans, but also for our furry friends. Included in our list is a variety of products tailored to common surgeries animals have to go through. And of course, we chose only the best for our canine companions. 

Tips for Buying the Best Post-Surgery Gifts

  1. Consider their specific needs
    Each surgery is unique in its own way. When choosing a gift, consider items that are specific to the injury or healing process. This will help you distinguish between what is more useful as opposed to what is not.
  2. Don’t be afraid to be playful with your gifts
    They say laughter is the best medicine, after all. The healing process can be quite a tedious, serious thing. Why not bring a little joy into their life by choosing fun gifts? These can range from adult coloring books, funny gag gifts, puzzles, books, or anything that promotes mental stimulation.
  3. Pick things that will make life easier
    It’s difficult to take care of yourself (and your loved ones) when you’re sick. When choosing gifts, take this into account. If you are looking for things to add a little ease to the day-to-day stresses, choose things that simplify routine such as hygiene packages, care packages, and gifts that nurture. 

FAQs

What is a post surgery care package?

A post surgery care package is a kit containing items that have been put together for the sole purpose of aiding a person in recovering from surgery. The objects could be to help in physical healing like an orthopedic pillow or to help boost the patient’s mental health like a wall sign or a desktop plaque that contains an inspirational message. Whatever you put together, be sure that the post surgery care package communicates your love, care, and concern for the person.

How do I determine the best post surgery gifts for her?

Before shopping for post surgery gifts for her, you need to first know why she had the surgery and then understand what she needs during her recovery. You can talk to her healthcare provider who’ll definitely give you some great pointers.  You could also talk to another lady who has gone through the same surgery since they know what helped to hasten their recovery process. Having the right information will not only save you cash, but it will also ensure that whatever you purchase will be the best post surgery gifts for her.

What are some unique gifts for post surgery?

Recovering from surgery is a painful, long process; most times the person already has all the medical-related aids they need in their recovery and you may be wondering what else such a person needs. The good news is that there are some unique gifts for post surgery patients you only need to be very intentional in your shopping. Anything that will make them laugh or smile, such as the Giggling Plush Happy Pill, is a great gift idea. Sufficient rest is paramount to healing so get them something to help them sleep better. You could get the traditional eye mask that blocks out light and enables the person to nod off quicker or go a bit more tech and get the sleep headband that has headphones to help the person enjoy some relaxing music while they rest.
