With pandemic fears at an all-time high, soothing treatments for those quarantined to ease symptoms and reduce the risk of infection is a necessity. But luckily, it’s never been easier – or more stylish – to pull together a care package.
And it’s not just people who are feeling less well that deserve a boost! Care packages can be a great way to show your appreciation for those who have been working tirelessly in the midst of this crisis.
But how are you supposed to know what to pack? Need practical, small-scale ideas that can be whipped up in a hurry and will make an impression? Read on.
- Alcohol Spray
Whether you’re a medical professional, an emergency services user, or just someone who’s felt under the weather, you probably know that alcohol sprays are a necessity nowadays. And the best part? These products are relatively inexpensive – perfect for a gift!
Just because you have a ‘flu’ doesn’t mean you’re off the hook when it comes to cleansing. But there’s something about being in the midst of a crisis that takes focus away from your colon. And that can be dangerous. That’s why linctuses, a type of laxative, are such an important medication.
A good decongestant can make all the difference to a congested nose. From clearing up a cold to helping with sinus problems, an active decongestant can help ease discomfort and make you feel better.
- Pepto Bismol
Pepto-Bismol is more than just a stomach soother. It can help you out in several ways, from relieving heartburn to calming indigestion, diarrhea and nausea. It’s definitely a go-to product if you’re feeling under the weather.
- Throat Lozenges / Cough Drops
Flu-like symptoms can be a real pain, especially when they hit before you get the chance to grab some lozenges. Don’t let your sore throat win! These treats will help soothe your sore throat, and they’re pretty easy to whip up.
- Nasal Spray
A nasal spray is an essential part of any flu kit! A nasal spray can relieve symptoms like stuffy noses and congestion, keeping you from getting sick.
- Snack gift box
Any food lover will appreciate a snack box. Opt for a healthy gift box, or choose your snacks to tie into your care package theme.
- Coffee, Tea or Hot Chocolate
A mug of hot chocolate or a steaming cup of tea is a great way to comfort those suffering from a cold, the flu, and even stomach ailments. If you’re feeling extra generous, bring along some sugar packets or honey packets as well!
- Blanket or Socks
These are useful in any care package, but when you’re trying to make sure a quarantined person is safe, these can be especially life-saving. Knit, crocheted or knit/crocheted socks are perfect for keeping feet warm and cozy, while blankets can keep them warm from the inside out.
- Essential Oils
These are definitely not just for aromatherapy! Essential oils can help calm a raging headache, reduce fevers and more. They’re also a good way to ensure the quarantined person feels calm, which is often essential in fighting off any illness.
