I' m recovering from major surgery and I am bed/house-bound. I'd like to give the people in my life who are taking care of me a nice gift.

About a week ago, I had another major surgery. For the last few years, I've gone through some serious health issues, which luckily, seem to be resolving themselves after my hospital stints.
There are a handful of friends in my life who have really gone out of their way to take care of me - making meals, keeping my apartment clean, helping me with my physical rehab, etc. It can be exhausting and it takes time out of their own busy and hectic 30-something lives.
I know they do this cheerfully and because they love me, but I want to give them something to show my gratitude. I would gladly return the favor but that's not an option given my physical state right now.
I am limited right now to either purchasing something on the internet or calling a business to set something up, but otherwise, anything is fair game.
It doesn't have to be big or crazy - I was looking to spend maybe 50-100 dollars on each person. My first idea was spa gifts, but I thought maybe there were some more ideas out there.
I'd like it to be something that maybe relaxes them or does something for them that saves time, since they've been giving so much of it to me.
Thanks for your help!
