Introducing Goodbye Crutches Get-Well Gift Collection

Posted by Tom Schwab

Uplifting_Post-Surgery_GiftsI am so excited to help announce the launch of the Goodbye Crutches Signature Get Well Gift Collection. Just like Goodbye Crutches’ signature crutch-alternative products, these gifts were designed to ensure that someone’s recovery time doesn’t have to be a dreaded “down time”.

Healing aromatherapy, soothing comfort, uplifting colors, and encouraging messages are all elements which have been thoughtfully curated to complete this Get-Well gift collection. Here are some highlights and insights into the items we’ve included in our gift packages:

Hydra Aromatherapy Shower Bursts make a fantastic base for this collection due to the fact that they address what is often cited as the most desired luxury for someone after surgery – a long, hot shower! Since baths are usually not an option after foot or ankle surgery, a luxurious shower is well deserved and appreciated. These aromatherapy bursts are activated by the steam and indirect moisture of the shower, creating a spa experience right at home! Each gift set in the collection includes four brightly foil-covered shower bursts each with a different blend of essential oils, along with a pine shower deck to place them on. Each burst lasts between 2-4 showers depending on the length of the shower and proximity to direct spray. We also chose Hydra Aromatherapy’s Healing Triple-Milled Shea Butter Soap Bar for its restorative scent and rich lather. All Aromatherapy Shower Bursts, Shea Butter Soap Bars and Pine Decks are All-Natural and Made in the USA!
