When someone is feeling unwell or recovering from medical treatment, we usually like to send something in terms of a get well soon gift or card. But, sometimes it’s nice to step away from the traditional flowers and cards and give them something that they’ll really enjoy. As they say, laughter is the best medicine, so why not give them something that will make them chuckle? Here are some of the funniest get well soon gifts for your favorite patient!
By the way, if you’re interested, here is our list of get well gifts for kids.
Our Funniest Get Well Gifts
Flowers are nice, and plants are lovely, but what about a ticklish plant? The Tickle Me plant reacts to your touch by folding its leaves and dropping its branches when you touch it or blow it a kiss. A cute alternative to your standard plant, this piece of greenery will provide some entertainment as well. Unfortunately, this kit does not actually come with the plant itself, but rather the seeds to grow your very own Tickle Me plant. When it blooms, you will see pretty pink flowers on it amidst the lovely greenery.
Now, this gift could possibly backfire if the person you’re giving it to lives with you! This assistance bell will ensure that your patient has the best care and can get help (or a refill of snacks!) when they need it. It will make them laugh at the idea of being able to ring a bell to summon a caregiver, while also providing a practical way for them to get assistance while healing from their ailments. If they get a little too bell-happy, just tuck the bell away for a while so you can catch a break!
When we’re not feeling well, most of us like to snuggle something soft and cozy.

There’s nothing like a reminder of the good ol’ days, and this “Straight Outta Surgery” t-shirt will make anyone raised in the 1980’s and 90’s laugh at the connection to the popular rap song “Straight Outta Compton” that was so popular back then. If your loved one has just gotten through a tough surgery, then let them be proud of their accomplishment by wearing this funny t-shirt. They’re sure to get lots of comments, laughs, and well wishes by doing so!
It’s a widely known fact that coloring helps to reduce tension and improve one’s mood, and it also serves as a great pastime when you’re stuck resting in bed.
