Difficulties at home or at work, illnesses or general worries - we all have to follow the rocky path of life and are hit by hard times at some stage in our lives. Being there for our friends during those times and a few kind words can make coping a lot easier. A small gift, as a symbol of friendship and support, will often say more than a thousand words.
Tea Lover: T(ea)-L-C
Get a nice teapot, a box or basket and fill it with high-quality teas, some honey and a couple of fresh lemons to offer a little TLC to whoever is going through a rough patch. A very simple but lovely way to say "Hope you feel better soon!".
Pillow: "You can lean on me"
A pillow with a beautiful, comfy pillow case makes an excellent present for anyone in a difficult situation. Whether confinement to bed due to illness, requiring back support for the elderly or "a shoulder to cry on" for someone going through a rough patch - this is a fantastic and personal gift providing comfort, both physically and mentally.
Sweets: Yellow Candy in a Jar
Need a gift for someone who is feeling blue? Help them 'beat the blues' and give a jar of yellow-coloured candy (or in fact, any other yellow items).
Your message could read "Green is the colour of hope, regeneration and strength. I'm giving you a little yellow to turn your blues into a beautiful green!".
