When you live with chronic health challenges, things like spending time with loved ones, a home-cooked meal or help paying your bills, tend to be more valuable than gifts such as new clothes, electronics or jewelry.

Since these types of practical gifts can’t really be bought in stores and wrapped, we created 16 coupons for kind gestures that can make life easier for your chronically ill loved ones. Print the list or copy and paste the coupons you like to send to your friend to “redeem” them when they need some love.
