It seems like everyone around us is getting sick, and it’s not just the sniffles. Friends and family are feeling under the weather for days and weeks at a time. Two-thirds of people get sick at least once during peak cold and flu season*! I love a good pick-me-up when I’m sick because, as they say, laughter is the best medicine. I mean, laughter certainly doesn’t make things worse! I partnered with Puffs to create this Get Well and Smile Care Package that is humorous yet practical. You may use this printable (click here or on the image below) to make your own cold and flu season gift basket filled with items your loved one needs!
The poem reads:
This blanket is to keep you warm
and know somebody cares.
There’s tissues for your nose
and something else for theirs.
Remedies to keep you moving,
gloves for cleaning chores.
Tea to soothe your throat
and earplugs for the snores.
Get well soon!
When one member of the household is down with a cold or flu, everyone else scrambles to avoid it! We aim to keep the air and surfaces fresh and clean, disinfecting light switches and handles, and using separate hand towels.
This little Puffs Pal invites me to care for my nose with America’s #1 selling lotion tissue brand. Puffs Plus Lotion facial tissues keep my nose from getting red and irritated, because it locks in moisture better to soothe skin. Our home is well stocked, especially during cold and flu season!
DayQuil and NyQuil have been some of my go-to cold and flu remedies for years. Adulting doesn’t allow time for sick days. DayQuil helps me keep up with my kids during the day, and NyQuil helps when my symptoms make it hard to sleep. My other favorite remedies: green tea, homemade mashed potatoes, a hot shower, and a perfectly cozy blanket.
Do you have a favorite blanket to use when you’re not feeling well? My designated blanket is luxuriously soft, warm – but not too warm – and oh so cozy. I wrap myself in my cozy blanket with my Puffs Plus Lotion facial tissues and a warm cup of green tea. With this care package, I’d happily cuddle up and hand those ear plugs to my husband. Because you know I’ll be snoring peacefully in no time at all.
What are your favorite cold and flu remedies? How do you help loved ones feel better when they’re sick? Stock up now on Puffs Plus Lotion so you’re prepared when a cold strikes. A nose in need deserves Puffs indeed!
