2. Include Puffs Plus Lotion

By the time they get your get well care package their nose will probably be raw from all that blowing— you’ll be their hero by sending tissues with lotion. Puff Plus Lotion will soothe their irritated skin, and/or you can throw in Puffs Plus Lotion with the scent of Vicks, which offers comfort with every nose blow.

5. A Fun Way to Spend their Time

Tossing in a few entertaining pick-me-ups can work wonders. Consider some light reading, a feel-good movie, a gift card for some fun new apps to download, Sudoku, some crossword puzzles or word searches, etc.

Customize your cold care package for the specific person you’re sending it to (and if it’s a flu care package, re- member that the flu may hit harder and last longer—so don’t hold back on care items like tissues with Vicks!). Perhaps you can add some hometown goodies when preparing a care package for your sick (or homesick) college kid. Get creative, Florence Nightingale!
