This Get Well Kit couldn’t have come up at more appropriate time for me. I’m currently still fighting a nasty sinus infection. Marla, my parents and I all had it a couple weeks ago (and most of the kiddos too, of course). I thought I was getting better, had another day or two of feeling lousy, then thought I was getting better again, and now the last few days have been just awful with it again! I just can’t seem to kick it. I’ve developed some bizarre eye swelling to go along with it…I’ll spare you the pictures as it would frighten off even our most faithful of readers. Although I do enjoy texting those photos to my mom & Marla every morning (although probably not smart…one day they’ll end up coming back to haunt me!).
Currently being under the weather myself, I can tell you that receiving one of these get well baskets would make my day! (Even having this one I made up myself has been great!) Customize your kit with goodies you know your sick friend or loved one will enjoy, along with a magazine or two (I’d be pleased as punch to get a copy of Kinfolk or Home & Hill), and it’s a sure way to make them feel better.
I collected a few staples of sickie must-haves and packaged them in an old wooden berry basket. So what’s in my get well kit?
- Burt’s Bees Natural Throat Drops
- a few packs of Emergen-C
- Hand Sanitizer
- Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
- Honey (buy local if you can, it’s so much better!!)
What are some of your must-haves when you’re feeling sick??
I’m off to sip some tea and put my kit to good use…
Stay well! Manda
