Get Well Gift Idea

Well folks, it's almost that time of year.  The temps are changing, and we know what that means!  Yup, it's sicky time.  I saw this idea on Pinterest last year, and I thought I'd bring it back for this upcoming cold/flu season.  Bring this to a sick neighbor, friend, or leave it on a coworkers desk for when they can't take a sick day.

You could add or subtract as much as you'd like here.  This is a smaller version...
Here is a larger version, where I just added the box of tissues and the vicks.
If you just want to make the small gesture, find a large cappuccino cup, and add the honey, lemon, and tea bags... maybe a few cough drops.  If you are going the soup route, find a single bowl (Target, Walmart, Dollar Store, Home Goods etc) and add the soup, couch drops, and a card ((or maybe a magazine of interest?)).  I like the bright yellow theme.  It reminds me of sunshine, which is nice for someone who's sick and gloomy.  And please, if you get the honey bear, give him a bow tie? :) So cute.

Here are some other items you could ad or switch out for the items above:
  • New toothbrush (for when they are feeling they can throw out those bad sick germs)
  • Hand sanitizer 
  • Cold Medicine
  • Hot chocolate
  • Deep moisturizing cream (for under the nose)
  • Heating pad (for muscle aches)
  • New book, or amazon gift card to use for their Kindle
  • A prepared meal that can be thrown in the oven (lasagna, stuffed shells, etc)
  • Heated blanket (for when they get the chills)
  • Redbox movie (if you can take it back yourself)

Depending on what you decide to include, you may need to get a gift basket.  Michael's is the best place to find one of those (and don't forget to use a 40% off coupon... I use the app on my phone).  While you're there, don't forget a color coordinating bow!  It really does pull it all together.

Stay healthy my friends!
