  1. I would have never thought to get a Netflix gift card! That is like the perfect gift for someone resting and relaxing for a while. Hulu probably makes gift cards like those as well if you have a friend or family member more into TV shows and series vs movies.

  2. Those cozy throws sound perfect! My sister is always cold so a nice warm blanket will be something I think she will enjoy. Thanks for the recommendations on the list.
