This week my manager left for a whole stinking month.
I know what you're thinking. "The nerve of that woman!" But, hold up, she's got an excuse!
My manager took off because she is having surgery and will need time to recuperate.
Despite the mounds of work that she'll be leaving us with, she's a great manager and I wish her well!
My manager is a sweetheart and I totally adore her!
Peaches and I wanted to get together a little gift basket before she left, so we brainstormed ideas.
...and you all know what happens when Peaches and I brainstorm...
While we never put the basket together, we settled on having flowers delivered to her after she is released from the hospital. We know it's not an original gift, but I'm sure the thought will still serve as a pick me up!
You know I can't make all my brainstorming go to waste though, right??
Here are some great ideas to get a co-worker as a Get Well Soon gift.
1. Movie Basket
Pick a whole bunch of cute chick flicks and throw it in a pretty basket filled with candy and popcorn.
Movies and candy are a great way to spend the day when you are bed ridden!
My sick day chick flick pick was Devil Wears Prada! Did you catch that rhyme, Cat?
2. Book Basket
Pick a trilogy of books and put it all together in a cute package with a fancy bookmark.
Many people wish for more time to read a good book. Might as well help your coworker take advantage of it!
My book trilogy pick was Fifty Shades of Grey. Nothing like a juicy read to help feel better!
3. Recipe Journal
Purchase a super cute, keepsake recipe journal for your co-worker to make use of!
Some people like to feel useful when they are recouping! Organizing the messy recipe drawer is a great start!
The recipe journal I like is from here. It's cute, practical, and yellow!
4. Tea Infuser
The one thing I love when I am sick is a really good cup of tea.
A fancy tea infuser set is a great gift and totally appropriate to pair with a get well soon card!
The loose tea infuser I picked above is from here. I actually may get that for myself...
5. Picture Frame
This was Peaches' idea and a total gag gift bound to make our manager laugh!
A framed picture of your manager's favorite employees eh hem is sure to brighten his/her's recouping face!
I totally fell in love with the above picture frame from here.
What are your get well soon gift ideas for a co-worker?
