    I want to post a gift over to my cousin who is currently on suicide watch in the UK. I can't post aftershaves or liquids so aftershaves and cologne are out.
    What should I get him? I want it to be an ''I care'' sort of present. I have not seen him in years, a long long time ago, but he's my flesh and blood and if is family isn't there for him who is,I gave his mom advice earlier which I think was good advice.She loves him and is very worried about him.

    Anyway sorry for rambling on, what would be an appropriate gift?

    Does he like to read? How about a carefully chosen book? Something to distract him, to take him to another time and place. The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, etc.

    A picture frame with a picture of family or a favorite pet or vacation spot? A book of humorous quotations? A journal and a nice pen?

    I'm sure that he will appreciate any gift you choose...just to be thought of when is really at a low point. :arms:

    Is he allowed outside food at the hospital? I know with my step father who is in nursing home due to MS, some ordered in take out food pretty much instantly makes his day. Send him a pizza? I don't even know if that's feasible. Just an idea. haha.

    Food or something humorous... perhaps a book? It gets painfully boring and usually hospital food is only borderline edible. I would say music but i know sometimes they don't like people having electronics. Is he allowed to accept phone calls? Often times a good long chat is a good time waster and means a lot.
