    I would think a goodie basket with some snacks and fruit (as long as his diet allows goodies like chocolate and stuff). If he likes to read, maybe a new bestseller? I've always gotten magazines (hunting, fishing, sports) for my step-dad and BIL.

    That is a great idea, and if he has a sense of humor, the Chia pet thing was great!!! If money isn't an object, a bonsai tree would be cool for a guy.
    Wow, Gompers, great minds think alike. I was thinking of a bonsai tree, too!

    Thanks all-great suggestions :hatparty: I have sent him some gourmet chocolate chip cookies gift basket. He is in ICU. He's an alcoholic and his friend had found him unconscious on the floor of his apartment. The hospital believes he had been on the floor for many days and that he went through DT's while lying on the floor.

    Another suggestion is to send flowers, but attach a sign that says "Real Men Like Flowers."
