Your closest friend is ill and she is going to be spending a considerable amount of her time in the hospital, eating unappetizing food, restricted to the bed, with not much for company. While you can visit her from time to time, it may be a good idea to give her something that will cheer her up on a depressing day and remind her that you miss her and can't wait for her to feel better. What better way to do that than to give her a get well soon card, albeit with a twist. In this article, we give you some unique ideas that will make them fun and thoughtful at the same time.

Ideas You can Use

The same old cards flood every card store and while they may mimic your feelings exactly, they may not be the most personalized things to give. Given in this section are some of the more unique ideas that you can try out if you are looking for some thoughtful ideas.

Videotaping the Message
If you want the message to be truly personalized, then there is nothing better than a message that has been videotaped. With mobile phones equipped with cameras becoming cheaper by the day, it is literally child's play to shoot a video with all her loved ones sending out their own messages to her. Compile the entire footage into one video, add music and text messages, and send it out to her. Not only is the message sure to touch an emotional chord, it is a message that is forever.

On Wine Glasses
If you have an artistic side, then this is an idea that you should definitely try, especially if your friend loves her wine and is presently a temporary teetotaler. Buy wine glasses or pick up old wine glasses that you have rotting at the back of your dinnerware cupboard. Now pick up paints for making stained glass. Play around with different designs. You can opt to have the message you want sent out divided between a set of glasses or have the same message repeated on each of the glasses. Paint out their favorite cartoon characters with text bubbles and funny messages. This is a funny and great twist on a traditional card.

Jigsaw Puzzles
You know your friend is bored out of her mind with nothing to do and being bed ridden is not really helping the situation. In fact it is only making her more irritable by the minute. What can you do to tell her that you want her to get better as soon as possible and also get her to spend some time constructively? Well make her a jigsaw puzzle. It does not necessarily need to be as well-defined and structured as a store-bought one but you can kill two birds with one stone by not only telling her how much you care about her, but also giving her something to do while recuperating.

Is your friend a bookworm? Does she read almost anything that she gets her hands on? If yes, then what could be a better idea to get her to feel awesome, then dedicating an entire magazine to her? Get her family and friends together and give each of them one page to design. The content of the page, the art work, everything would be their responsibility. Once you have all the pages, compile it together and create a cover page with one of her best photos on it. This idea works well to get anyone feel like they are the princess of the world.

These are just some of the ideas that you can try out. The basic aim behind creating such a card is letting someone know how much you care about them, and how eager you are for them to get better. Make such a card for them and see their face light up.
