  • You could go with a nice small plant. Even guys don't want to be in a drab old hospital room. A plant kinda adds a little life. The hand held poker game is a great idea, though!

  • You've gotten some great suggestions: a good book, puzzle books/magazines, the chapstick and hand lotion idea are all excellent.

  • I agree with meooma. A word search or crossword puzzle book is good. I don't know that I would go with flowers, some hospitals don't allow fresh flowers in certain parts of the hospital (allergies and such). Maybe an inexpensive handheld game like pocket poker or dominoes. Those usually run $10-$15 at Target or Walmart. Chapstick and a small thing of good hand lotion are good to have.

  • Magazines, puzzle books, playing cards, candy, and anything else that he won't have to lug home.
