Thank you Kleenex brand for sponsoring this post.
Cold and flu season is already in full force in Atlanta. And probably anywhere that kids are in school, because we all know that kids have mutant germs that keep them constantly sick. The numbers of mamas and babies attending our play dates are dwindling since the kiddos are always ill! One of my best mom friends came down with a nasty cold this week. Not only is she chasing around a crazy toddler but she is in the process of undergoing fertility treatments, so I wanted to do something nice for her and put together a little care basket featuring little things to help keep her more comfortable until the nastiness passes.
The best thing to include in any cold care basket is a box of Kleenex facial tissues because you know they’ll use them. I love using the tissues with lotion because I know that any time I have the cold or flu my skin get really dry and the moisturizing tissues really help.
Other ideas of what to include?
-Tea (Peppermint tea is great for congestion)
Think of any items that make your loved one more comfortable for icky days. Whoever you give it to are going to appreciate any effort that you do. Make sure to put it in a basket. make it look pretty, and tie it off with a bow just to make their day extra special! Nearly 50% of people in the United States say that they’ve missed an opportunity to show someone they care, especially during everyday moments, according to a survey conducted by Kleenex brand. Little acts like giving Kleenex facial tissue to someone who needs one helps make the world a better place! Current research shows a strong link between kindly emotions and helpful behaviour and well-being, health, and longevity  – all the more reason to pay it forward and help out those around you!
I stocked up on Kleenex facial tissue from the Walmart pharmacy section before the cold or flu even hits our house! The worst thing is coming down with something and having to run to the store to get the products you need. Right now there is an exclusive Walmart offer on Kleenex facial tissues: receive $5 VUDU credit when you purchase either a 4-pack of 75-count Kleenex Ultra Soft Tissues or Kleenex Tissues with Lotion.Redeem by purchasing qualifying item and star/check the item(s) and the date of your receipt.
