Q&A: Is it ok to give a recovering anorexic a gift basket that has food in it?

Question by Mars: Is it ok to give a recovering anorexic a gift basket that has food in it?
I have a friend that was recently put into the hospital because of anorexia. These past few months she dropped weight so much that she got below 90 pounds. I love her to tears and I know anorexia can be cause by a number of things but as far as I’m aware hers is mostly centered around low self-esteem. (I know this from my observations of the way she talks about herself). So since she’s been sent to the hospital to get better I want to make her a gift basket for when she gets back. I was planning to put some nail polish, make-up, a spa treatment pack and some candy in there. But I have another friend who has dealt with anorexic family members who thinks putting food and make-up in the basket would be a bad idea. Would it? I don’t want to inadvertently hurt her feelings by getting her something that (in a anorexics mind) would say ‘here! get fat and you’re ugly’ and cause her to relapse. I just want to get her those things because I know she likes them, and I think she would enjoy them after getting back from the hospital. I might even throw her a little reunion party if I can figure everything out in time.
But my big question is,
would my friend relapse into unhealthy self destructive habits because of some make-up (which she and I both enjoy) and maybe a packet or two of candy? If so, what would be some alternative gifts I could get her instead?

I think that it would be worth avoiding all together and skip the food idea.

Q&A: What are some good ideas for a gift basket?

Question by Brad: What are some good ideas for a gift basket?
I’m about to be a foreign exchange student and I would really love to thank the person who made that possible with a gift basket of assorted baked goods. I had the idea of some mini banana breads, some cookies and maybe some individually wrapped brownies. Does anyone have any other suggestions that I can put in it? I’d really like to make it special and home-made. Thanks!

Try to add items that will not spoil quickly. I like the items you picked, but would add or substitute some cookies, good chocolates and specialty teas and/or coffee,
