Ideas for friends package

Hey,
So, there's a few members on here that i'm pretty close with, and a couple have recently been admitted to a psych ward, I was thinking that it'd be nice to send them a package with distractions and things to make them smile in it, but i'm pretty stuck for ideas, so I thought i'd ask if anyone else had any? Thanks, Charlie.

things to keep them busy, a journal and pen or colouring book and felt tips, some crafty things as long as there's no sharp bits involved!

Thanks everyone, i've already got:
A letter
A poem I wrote for her
Some little bits of paper with messages saying things like 'I love you' and 'You're beautiful' etc,
A penguin keyring which I made myself,
A bracelet,
Glitter,
A list of support numbers,
The big distractions list,
Perfume samples (I find the smells calming)
Stickers,
Little instant hot chocolate sachets.
When I get paid I need to get a new notebook, some sweets and some scented gel pens :) I know there's a lot there, but for some reason, I still don't feel like it's enough, I need more ideas lol

This is such a lovely idea. For me, receiving a letter meant the world so I am sure that whatever you include in your packages will be a massive boost for your friends. x



Never give up on giving up

I always liked word searches, because they do require some focus, but it's still kind of mindless. It's also something that you can share with people.

Or a Where's Waldo book!



the rage you feel will consume you and destroy you
let this rage inside you die
one day you'll find the signs in every motion
close your eyes so you might see
I will hold you still every second of every hour
let your actions speak your will
raise your head up high so the heavens hear you cry
light the brightest fire from the highest mountain
so the whole world knows that
your spirit can't be broken

Hmmm. Be careful about sending it then. Chances are, if they don't have it in the ward, it's for a reason. I know all the hospitals I've been in have a strict no caffeine rule. Therefore, check and make sure anything you are sending they will be allowed to have.

I think a colouring book or puzzle book is a must as it's something to do.

it would take some work, so might be best if they're in for a longer stay, but you could make some sort of photo album of things that you've done together, and then write notes about what you remember from when the photos were taken... could help remind them of happier times and happy memories




this is my magical medicine cabinet. Left to right they contain: courage, hope, calmness, and strength.

The magical part: They NEVER run out, so borrow some any time you want.



PM me anytime, I love getting messages :)
