What do I give as a gift when visiting at the hospital?

I am going to visit an old friend that I haven't seen since high school. She is extremely ill and in the hospital.

I would like to bring her something, I just don't know what. She may in an ICU, and they don't allow flowers there . . .

Any suggestions?

  • I crocheted my friend a cozy pair of slippers. Another time I brought a friend a couple new magazines that I knew she would enjoy.

  • If she can eat it, bring her favorite candy. If not, bring her a radio and put some of her favorite music on =)

  • When my Uncle was at the hospital in ICU, I brought him pictures! He had been in there for awhile, and I wish I would have recorded him when he saw pictures of my 2 girls, he was so happy just to see pictures! I agree with cozies (socks, robe, blanket)
