Gift for friend having hysterectomy?

-A friend having TAH and I wanted to get her something. I have amnesia and can't remember, What do you think a good little present would be when she comes home? She has someone to cook and tidy already, so food is out. Any suggestions? Best gifts you may have received? Thanks!

How about a gift card for a pedicure when she can get up and moving but not able to bend a lot. Or even a facial. If she isn't a girly kind of gal that would appreciate that, then a selection of magazines, puzzle books, dvds or short stories in a basket along with some good choccies!

I have always worn cotton nightgowns but a dear friend brought me a satiny feeling type of nightgown that she had found at Wal Mart - it was wonderful - made moving around in bed much more easy as the more slippery material moves easily around on the bedding. No getting your nightie stuck under you. Now it's my favorite! Chocolate is ALWAYS good too.

Most people do things right away and within a week or two, it's like no one remembers you. I received flowers, fruit baskets, food but my favorite was being taken out to lunch by a coworker about 1 month after. It was great and I got out of the house. I also have a friend close by and once I felt up to it we would meet 1 or 2 times a week at a local bagel shop for bagel sandwiches and coffee. My dad would drop me off and she would bring me home. It was so much fun. So I suggest doing something like that. I really appreciated the change of scenery and conversation.

Thank you all so much for all the great suggestions! I think I will combine a few, especially the ones aimed at a few weeks post-op. Its true that even though you still feel kind of crappy, people move on with there own stuff. Thanks again!

I like Debbie's idea for a "gentle outing" at a few weeks post-op. You make the plans/reservations for a restaurant meal or a movie, you pick up your friend at her doorstep, drop her off right outside the door of the site, etc. Sorta like you are taking her on "a date."
