~A gift cert for a dinner out when he is well!
~A mans tolietry baskets (gotta love dollar stores!) with nice masculine deoderant, nail clippers, toothbrush, toothpaste, BACK SCRATCHER (he will love you for that!) and the like.
~ A subscription to a mans mag like Maxim (not x rated but manly) or a hunting/car/fishing one..whatever his likes are. But get him the recent issue so he can read it while he waits for the next one
~Tell him he is moving to a shared ward..and get him soap on a rope..LOL!
~A gift cert for a massage or foot rub (this is actually very requested believe it or not!).
~Books, word puzzles or what not to keep him entertained.
or this one was hillarious when I walked in on a patient and the family bought him this so he was entertained by the nurses reactions....they have these spilled beer or wine glasses that are plastic but look so REAL! I walked in and was like HUH? Oh we got a good laugh from that!
What does he like to do...start there too! Like my bro loves guitars...I would have brought his in, and got him little guitar trinkets (and betty boop..he loves betty boop) from the dollar store or a party supply store and fill a fun basket full of them! Along with a CD player and a favorite CD of his!
Hope he is better in no time!
