When someone is in the hospital, I like to visit and take something to brighten their room or pass the time away. However, when someone I care about is in the hospital and lives far away, a visit is just not possible.

That’s when sending flowers comes to mind. That’s also when you can easily discover that doing so will cost you close to $50 even for the simplest arrangements.

Recently I discovered another option: the hospital gift shop.

Located in the hospital, there’s no delivery fee.  Not only that, but their arrangements are usually affordably priced.  Many gift shops offer the option of adding a book, magazine, or another gift option from all they carry in their shop.

Recently, I was able to send a friend a floral arrangement, a magazine, and a book for just $25!  Using a traditional florist, I couldn’t have even sent an arrangement for that price.

I love when I discover deals like that!

What about you? What strategies have you used to send get well wishes to someone on a “living with less” budget?
