Caregivers

Dec 23, 2015 7:37 PM

Anyone have any good way for me to thank my amazing caregiver/fiancΓ©? I need something unique and thoughtful. He goes to so much trouble helping me just get through each day.

What are his hobbies or interests?

Well I'm just gonna throw some ideas out there. Since he is hour caregiver I'm not sure how much help u actually need. But
1: a day out alone doing his favorite thing. Or with one of his friends . but make it about him make it day where he does not have to worry about tending to anything but himself.
2: a gift card for a nice restaurant
3: sports tickets
4: maybe a new recliner or some kind of upgrade to his man cave if he has one. If he does not maybe get him a man cave.
These are just some things I've seem people do a d some things I wshbi could do for my family. I hope you can find a great gift.
Also make sure he knows for sure how u appreciate him..
Blessings to you..merry Christmas.

Being a care giver myself, I like the idea of letting him a day out with friends or have moment by himself or even a weekend getaway to a spa, (yes I know its a man) but some like to be pampered for just a bit, if he is not the spa type get him a gift card for him to get a massage, it will sure help him with sore muscles if he has any. I pray that you can find the perfect gift. Merry Christmas to you and yours! πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽπŸ’•β„β›„

Or, if he likes excitement you can go onto Adrenaline365.com and get him an "experience" like driving a race car, a helicopter ride, jumping out of a plane, horseback riding, fishing, there are a lot of activities to choose from. One thing that I can think of that I know I would love.. A letter from you to him expressing exactly how much he means to you and how very much you love and appreciate what he does for you. Something from your heart. It doesn't get better than that!πŸŒ»πŸ™πŸ»

I think a letter of appreciation and a day out with friends. Caregivers sometimes forget they have friends when they help take care of someone. They get stuck in the house except for running to the store or drug store. I think what they need is a reminder that they need to take time for themselves. If he has a best friend, get him a gift card to a place where they have a bar and eating. Then some movie tickets. I just bought some movie tickets for a date night for a couple for their anniversary with money for the concession stand. Just an idea.
