Last year’s cold, cough and flu season was rough. As a family of five, every time one of us got sick, we all got sick. Just as soon as we thought we were feeling better, we would be struck with another round of sickness. It seemed like the cough, cold and flu would never end in our household.
That’s why this holiday season, I’m making sure my family stays one-step ahead of the cough, cold and flu with my Ultimate Get Well Gift Basket for Loved Ones. It’s the perfect gift basket to give those you love and it is so easy to make. It only requires a few essentials, but they are the best essentials for anyone feeling under the weather.
Ultimate Get Well Gift Basket for Loved Ones
To make the Ultimate Get Well Gift Basket for Loved Ones you will need to start with a basket, of any sort, and a cozy, warm blanket for the base layer. Spread your blanket through the bottom of your basket and then you’re basket is ready to fill with my favorite items for those sick days.
Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes
Whenever the cold, cough, and flu start to go around, I always make sure to keep Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes on hand. These wipes, wipe away 99.9% of the most common allergens* and help you keep germs from spreading around to the whole family. Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes are great for using on hard non-porous surfaces and come in a fresh lemon scent that smells clean and refreshing.
Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold
Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold give you powerful relief without a prescription. Theraflu treats those miserable cold symptoms like:
- minor aches and pains
- nasal and sinus congestion
- cough due to minor throat and bronchial irritation
- minor sore throat pain
- and temporarily reduces fevers.
Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold fits right in your routine. Compatible with most single-serve coffee makers, these fast-relieving pods work on even your severe symptoms. Press. Sip. Relief. Available also in Theraflu Power Pods Nighttime Severe Cold, these pods are powerful enough to help you feel better on your worst days.
When gifting Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold, I recommend adding a nice coffee mug to and a pair of warm socks to your Get Well Basket.
Breathe® Right Extra Clear Nasal Strips
Breathe® Right Extra Clear Nasal Strips are great for helping a sick loved one get a better night’s rest. Breathe® Right is drug-free and safe to use with any sleep medication. These strips help reduce nighttime snoring and provide relief from congestion due to colds, allergies, or a deviated septum.
Breathe® Right clear nasal strips work the same way the tan strips do. However, the materials used are slightly different, making clear strips easier to remove, which can be beneficial for people with dry or sensitive skin. Each Breathe® Right Extra Clear Nasal Strip is easy to apply and has a flexible, “spring-like” band on the inside. On the underside is a special adhesive that, when placed properly on the nose, gently sticks to the area right above the flare of each nostril. As the bands attempt to straighten back to their original shape, they gently lift the sides of the nose and open the nasal passages, providing immediate and continual relief. Breathe® Right opens your nose up to 38% more than decongestant sprays alone.
When placing Breathe® Right Extra Clear Nasal Strips inside your loved one’s gift basket, you can be certain they will Breathe Better, Sleep Better, & Feel Better.
Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment
Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment is for more than temporary symptom relief, it’s for healing. It delivers the best results when used at the first sign of a cold sore and is the only FDA approved OTC medicine to shorten healing time.
When you pack your loved one Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment, you can feel certain knowing it’s proven to heal stubborn cold sores faster and better than other cold sore medications.
Robitussin® Honey Maximum Strength Cough & Chest Congestion DM
For that stubborn cough that usually accompanies cold and flu season, I recommend adding Robitussin® Maximum Strength Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM intended for 12 and older, With Robitussin Honey, you can fight your cough and help kick your symptoms to the curb. The liquid-strength of Robitussin Honey soothes on contact and provides cough relief for hours.
Remember, Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold and Robitussin® Maximum Strength Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM should not be used at the same time.
I also add Children’s Robitussin® Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM so you can help your little ones feel better with effective cough relief plus real honey. It’s intended for ages 4 plus and is non-drowsy, so kids can take it before school with no sleepy side-effects. It relieves chest congestion, mucus and quiets cough.
Also add a box of tissues to help with the runny noses that often go with a cough.
