Gift Ideas for a Friend in the Hospital or Recovery

I was in the hospital for 17 days when I was having brain surgery and recovery. You can read my story here. If I am honest, I had no interest in doing anything as I was so drugged up. But when I got home, I now had 6 weeks before I could go back to work. It was so important to stay sane and keep myself busy. I was so grateful for gifts from friends and family. I even bought myself some gifts to help with my recovery. Need some gift ideas for a friend in the hospital or recovery?
