Who here dislikes Cold and Flu Season as much as I do?

I feel like our family has been sick on and off for the last 3 months, and I’m kind of done with it. We’ve had lots of family and friends who have constantly been sick, so I decided to come up with a Cold, Cough and Flu Kit for some friends in particular who have been sick for the last month. Sometimes I feel like there isn’t much I can do to help and thought this kit might be helpful as well as brighten their sick days.

MY OTHER RECIPES

I filled it will all sorts of great things. First and foremost, 100% Florida Orange Juice. I’m a strong believer in lots of liquids and vitamins when you are sick (and to prevent getting sick), and OJ is the first thing my family gets when we are sick. I also included Clorox Wipes, Cold-Eeze, a movie, popcorn, Kleenex and Anti-Bacterial Hand Soap. This kit was inspired by Safeway pharmacy’s “Be Well. Save Well.” Pamphlet. This is a pamphlet found at the Safeway Pharmacy that has all sorts of tips and tricks for being well during the Cold & Flu Season. It also has several coupons on items that might be useful while you are sick (score!)

{Evie, my baby, was my shopping companion. She’s definitely the easiest to cart along!}

Safeway also had all sorts of brochures, coupons and tips on how to stay well during the cold and cough season.

4. Make a paper accordion for the front. To do that you will cut two strips of 12 inch scrapbook paper. Each strip of mine was 2 inches wide. Then I folded the paper back and forth (zig-zagging) until the end. From there I hot glued the ends together to form a circle. Then, I pushed the centers in hot glued. Add Get Well Tag to the top.

5. Hot glue accordion and tag to your box.

6. Fill box with goodies and put shredded paper in the excess areas.

Now you have a super cute Cold, Cough and Flu Kit that you can give to your friends and family to show that you are thinking of them and that you love them. ๐Ÿ™‚

100% Florida Orange Juiceย and vitamins (like the gummie kind) are also a great way to help your kids get the vitamins they need without realizing it not only prevent sickness but helping them to get better, which is always a bonus. These, as well as the other items including in the kit play a huge part in keeping our family well during the harsh winter months. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cassie

LOVE this idea! Thanks so much for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    So glad you like it, Cassie! I just thought it would be fun to give a cute gift this time of year since everyone seems to be sick. Hope you can use the idea. XO

Very cute kit! When I am sick I have lots of soup and hot chocolate- the warmth tends to open up my sinuses for a time. Also Walmart has a cold and allergy bath salt package that you can use in the tub – or if you prefer to shower sprinkle a little down on the floor before you start. It has menthol in it and can really open up those sinuses too. If you use it follow the directions and be careful measuring- my sweetheart who has been sick all work used some and just guessed at the 1/3 of cup that it calls for and had to take a shower after the bath to get it all off him. He used about 3/4 cup instead.

    Lil' Luna

    Soup and Hot Cocoa are great when you’re sick!! Totally forgot about those! And thanks for the tip about the Walmart salt package – that sounds awesome!!! Have a great day! XO

Brandi

I love the kit! So sweet! In order to stay well, I wash my hand…A LOT! I also drink OJ, peppermint tea, and tons of water to stay hydrated. It seems like the more I drink, the less I get sick!

    Lil' Luna

    You’re so right, Brandi! Water is definitely key as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

Libby O'Regan

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you, Libby! I thought this could brighten up anyone’s day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Jill

Kristyn,
What a GREAT idea! You’re a nice friend! Thanks for sharing! Smiles, Jill

    Lil' Luna

    Don’t know if I’m a nice friend… I feel like I hardly have time to help anyone and that’s why I thought the kit would be good. It would make me feel like I was being more of a nice friend! ๐Ÿ™‚ So glad you like it though. XO

Bonny

I absolutely love how you put it all together in a gift box!

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you Bonny! I couldn’t find a cute basket at the store and thought I could turn the ugly box into something cute (and save money at the same time). ๐Ÿ™‚ Win – Win. ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you liked it!

Beeb Ashcroft
