You can’t always be there in person when a friend or family member is under the weather. But what you can do is send them a thoughtful get well care package. Not sure what to include? Read on for our top cold and flu care package tips.
1. Beverages to Keep them Hydrated
Whether your recipient is a tea or sports drink lover, send them their favorite beverages to help keep them hydrated.
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.
3. Save Them a Trip to the Pharmacy
Save them the trouble of needing to run out to the pharmacy by including some common necessities: Ny-Quil, DayQuil, cough drops, and the like.
4. Add a Thoughtful Card
What’s a get well soon care package without a ‘Get Well Soon’ card? Get a funny one to lift their spirits, and ask some other friends or family to sign it as well.
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!
