oopdoohug.com a Minneapolis based company, is pleased to announce that its (oopdoo)™hug wrap was chosen as a notable new get well gift for children by the popular e-magazine "But You Don't Look Sick". Butyoudontlooksick.com designated September as "Get Better Get Well Gifts" and featured gifting ideas beyond the traditional choices.
The (oopdoo)™hug is an irresistibly soft oversized fleece wrap in the shape of a bandage and includes a pocket that can hold a hot or cold pack. For a child it combines the emotional benefit of an adhesive bandage with the soothing comfort of a security blanket. In her review of the product, site owner Christine Donato said of the (oopdoo)™hug, "This cute gift is perfect for a child who is sick, or under the weather. Since every kid wants a band aid for every boo boo, this is a fleece "bandage" for the boo boos you can't see. This gift is perfect for stomach aches, headaches, or hospital stays."
Christine (Miserandino) Donato started 'But You Don't Look Sick' in 2003 to chronicle her own journey with Lupus but quickly realized that it was a voice and support system for all people battling invisible diseases. It has grown into an e-Magazine with daily articles and a vibrant community. Recent articles include "How to write a better get well note" and "36 easy things you can do to make the life of your chronically ill friend a bit better"
