Humans have been giving gifts to each other since the beginning of time. There are many reasons for giving someone a present: birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, a job well done, congratulations… and more. One great reason to give someone a gift, however, is to help them feel better after surgery. But when it comes to gifts for surgery patients, what's appropriate? What's fun? What can take their minds off the pain they may be in or the stress they may be feeling?

One word: comedy.

We are going to explore a number of appropriate gifts for surgery patients. After that, we are going to introduce you to a fun way of putting a smile on someone's face – regardless of whether they’re recuperating from a major or minor surgery.
