This post is brought to you by Puff Plus Lotion at Sam’s Club but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
It’s cold and flu season (bummer!) and it’s already made it’s way to our house. Stuffy noses, sore throats, coughs…it’s no fun to get sick, and I hate that it always seems to happen right after the new school year starts. A couple of my kids got sick last week, right before my press trip, and I prayed that I would be able to make it through my busy traveling week without getting hit with whatever bug they brought home.
I was doing well until this morning, and I can feel the aches and the sore throat inching in on me.
I think the hardest job of all is being a mom when you’re sick. No one stops for mom. Kids still need to be taken to school and practices, dinner still needs to be made, and the milk won’t buy itself.
Luckily, even before the first sign of sniffles in our house, I picked up a 10-pack of Puffs Plus Lotion at Sam’s Club so I was well-prepared for everyone to have a stock of tissues on hand near their bed, in the kitchen, in the bathrooms, and in the family room. We love Puffs Plus Lotion because it is the most soothing and soft tissue ever….and that makes a huge difference when we’re wiping noses constantly!
Because I know what it feels like to be sick with no mom around to pamper me (don’t you wish your mom could come visit every time you got sick??), I decided to create a fun DIY cold and flu care package to give to a friend (preferably a fellow mom who needs extra pampering). It was so easy to put together, and I know that I would love to receive something like this from a friend when I’m feeling under the weather.
How to Make a Cold and Flu Care Package with Puffs Plus Lotion
I grabbed a cute basket and filled it with a variety of products to help comfort and soothe anyone who’s been beaten by one of the many bugs that go around during the fall. I’m excited to deliver this to a friend in need – not that I would ever wish that a friend get sick!
Here are some ideas of items to include in the care basket:
- Puffs Plus Lotion
- A favorite magazine or two
- Snacks and candy
- Herbal tea
- Nail polish
- Water bottle
- New toothbrush
- Breath mints
