This winter has been a particularly rough one for the flu and colds. I knew it was really bad when I received an email saying that there was a high flu warning for the Louisville and Cincinnati area. It’s definitely put me on high alert as to ways to avoid getting sick in the first place.
But it’s not possible to always avoid getting sick. In fact, I’ve actually been feeling pretty run down for quite a few weeks. There’s rarely been a day when my desk wasn’t covered in tissues, cough drops, and a glass of orange juice.
Easy Get Well Soon Gift Basket Ideas
If you know someone that’s feeling under the weather, too, a quick and easy gift basket full of little things to make them feel better may be just the ticket. Here are a few easy and inexpensive ideas anyone would appreciate.
Chicken Noodle Soup – homemade or store bought, it doesn’t matter which. Pour it over into a mason jar and wrap it with a pretty ribbon for an extra-special touch.
Cough Drops – When people are sick, they’re likely to go through a whole lot of these. Save them a trip to the store by tucking in a bag or two.
Tea – include a box or a few bags of soothing tea. Lemon, herbal, and calming are all good choices. You can even tuck them into a pretty cup, or add some honey straws or even a tea ball.
Entertainment – when you’re sick, you are probably not doing much more than trying to stay warm on the couch. A magazine or two, a quick paperback read, or a favorite movie on DVD would be very appreciated.
Crackers – They pair nicely with the chicken noodle soup, plus they’re good for solo snacking, too. I don’t know about you, but when I’m sick, I don’t usually feel like much more than sipping on a little soup or nibbling a cracker or two.
Tissues – I can’t count the number of tissues I’ve gone through in the past few weeks. Seriously, every time I reach for a tissue, I swear the box is empty. A box (or three) of tissues are a great addition to your gift basket.
Lately I’ve been using Puffs Plus Lotion for my tissues. While I’ve used Puffs some in the past, I’d never tried the lotion variety before. Honestly, I thought they’d end up being greasy I guess. They’re not greasy, though. What they are, are clouds for your nose.
Whether you’re giving a get well gift to someone else or you’re stocking your own home for one of the toughest flu seasons in recent history, do your nose a favor and choose something soft and soothing. So Pass the Puffs!
