I’m a little bit obsessed with gift baskets. There’s the endless theme possibilities, the convenience of it all being in a basket (or jar, or box, or bag), and of course the sheer “adorable-ness” of the finished product. Gift baskets work great for all occasions, and they’re especially fun when it’s a “just because” sort of gift. While I could go on and on with all of the various gift basket themes I’ve seen, I’ll save that for a different post and instead launch right into a “Flu Fighter” gift basket.
Flu season is upon us. Coworkers coughing up a lung at the desk next to you and your kids giving you the lay down on how many kids have thrown up at their school this week…
Someone around you is bound to get sick unfortunately, and I have the perfect “Get Better Soon” basket filler ideas so that you can be the favorite friend or family member after gifting it. This basket can be as expensive or inexpensive as you’d like, just pick and choose which options you want to find, and use this list to inspire you to add some of your own favorites as well. (Maybe your grandma has the best soup recipe that she swears cures the common cold? Print it out and include it in the basket!)
Here are some of my favorite things to include in my “Flu Fighter” basket:
Canned Chicken Noodle Soup
Bottle(s) of Sprite or Ginger Ale
Packets of Tea (Lemon Ginger is perfect for an upset stomach)
Mints (Altoids also help upset stomachs)
Ice Pack or Heating Pad
A Book or Magazine
Coloring Book or Puzzle Book (Sudoku is my favorite)
Warm Fuzzy Socks
Vitamin C Drops or Emergen-C Packets (I love Emergen-C!)
Medications (if you know what kind they prefer)
Boxes of Tissues
Lotion (Stay away from heavily scented if they have a cold; it could trigger symptoms)
Reusable Water Bottle
Those are just a few ideas out of the many out there! You can really include anything you’d like, and your friend or family member will really appreciate the time and effort you put into it for them.
