Putting together a care package is a great way to let a loved one know you are thinking of them. Whether they are down with a cold, had a recent surgery or just feeling blue – a care package can brighten their day. With Kleenex brand’s new Share the Care website you can create a customized care-board message to send across social media.
What message would you send?
Putting together a care package is as simple as 1 – 2 – 3.
- Gather some entertainment
- Put in a box of Kleenex facial tissues
- Add some get well items
Now let’s break it down to help you come up with ideas for the perfect care package.
When someone is feeling blue they often want to lounge around and relax. However, while recovering from an illness a person can become quite bored. Some entertainment ideas to keep them busy in bed are:
- Favorite Book or New Release
- Current Issue Magazine
- Activity Book – crossword puzzle, word search, sudoku
You can take advantage of an exclusive Walmart offer while stocking up: receive a $5 VUDU credit when you purchase either a 4-pack of 75-ct Kleenex Ultra Soft Tissues or Kleenex Tissues with Lotion.
Kleenex Facial Tissues
I personally love the Kleenex Tissues with Lotion. The aloe really does wonders on your nose during the cold and rough sinus season. For delicate skin, care for your sniffles and sneezes with the extra soothing softness of Kleenex Tissue with Lotion. When you want softness Kleenex Ultra Soft Tissues are there for you with a little extra TLC; they’re the #1 preferred Ultra Tissue.
All it takes to spread germs and sickness in the workplace or at school is a cough, sneeze, or an unwashed hand. The CDC suggests coughing and sneezing into a tissue then throwing it away to prevent spreading illness to others. Unlike many substitutes, Kleenex Facial Tissue is designed to shield a cough or sneeze to help keep stuff off of hands.
Get Well Items
If your care package is for a loved one that has a cold or the flu, pack items such as cough drops. I put some cough drops in a small mason jar instead of adding the entire bag of them to the basket. You can also add a little note on the mason jar, fancy ribbon or label. Some other get-well soon items to make them feel better is a can of chicken noodle soup and a soda or sparkling water.
What items make you feel better when you are under the weather?
By purchasing the Kleenex brand facial tissues in a 4-pack at your local Walmart you can redeem your receipt for a $5 VUDU credit. The VUDU credit allows you the option to rent a movie for your at-home entertainment. Once you redeem your code you can add this to your care package as a free gift.
Shoppers can receive a $5 VUDU credit when they purchase either a 4-pack of 75-ct Kleenex Ultra Soft Tissues or Kleenex Lotion Tissue. Some packages will have stickers that denote coupon and some will not, but all of the Lotion/Ultra Soft 4-packs are eligible.
Redeem by purchasing qualifying item and star/check the item(s) and the date of your receipt. Snap a clear photo of the entire receipt with your phone. Text CAREPACKAGE to 811811 for submission instructions. Please allow 48 hours for processing.
November is the month of giving back and showing gratitude. Who in your life are you thankful for? Create a care package for them just in time for the cold season. Even if they are not sick, anyone can enjoy a care package.
