The holiday season is upon us, and along with gifts, it can bring colds, the flu, strep throat, COVID-19 and many other viruses ready to get festive at you and your loved one’s expense.
In the true holiday spirit, a get-well-soon gift can provide the joy and healing a loved one may need should they receive a visit from a virus that isn’t as cheery as Santa.
Check out these five get-well-soon gifts that can serve as caring holiday gifts as well:
Staying hydrated helps strengthen the immune system and relieves congestion. The LARQ Self-cleaning water bottle uses innovative non-toxic mercury-free UV-C LED technology to purify water and clean the bottle’s inner surfaces. The bottle claims to eliminate odor-causing bacteria and viruses by self-cleaning every two hours. Not to mention it keeps your water cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours. This gift is a double-whammy for healing and prevention.
You are sure to receive a Spoonful of Comfort with this Get Well Soon Package from Spoonful of Comfort. The package contains a 64-ounce jar of hearty, heartwarming chicken noodle soup, old fashioned rolls and cookies - your loved one will feel like they’re right back at grandma’s house.
Bonus: Chicken noodle soup is proven to have healing properties when sick!
Honey makes everything taste so sweet, and a little bit can go a long way with its infection-fighting antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Instead of grabbing that little honey bear from the grocery store, go fancy with Sourwood Honey by Asheville Bee Charmer from the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. It’s one of the most sought-after monofloral kinds of honey in the world and it tastes buttery and delicious, too.
Apple Cider vinegar is hailed as a cure-all for colds, sore throats and other pesky sicknesses. When paired with natural ingredients such as ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, garlic and lemongrass, like the Stone Hollow Farmstead Infused Apple Cider Vinegar, you can pack a punch to your sickness. Infused apple cider can be taken on its own as a two-ounce shot, or when feeling better, it can be added to olive oil for a salad dressing or combined with gin for a cocktail (no judgment here).
Oh, my switchel! If you haven’t had a switchel before, you are missing out. A switchel is a beverage made with carbonated water, apple cider vinegar and ginger. It’s a fun way to get all the benefits of apple cider vinegar and ginger while enjoying a tasty beverage. Best of all, it can be made with a variety of flavor ingredients, including orange, lavender, honey and cinnamon, just like the ones you can purchase at Switchel Superior and Hobby Farms.
Hint: For non-alcoholic drinkers, a switchel can be a perfect alternative to alcohol when not sick.
Although the holiday season doesn’t always bring cheer, sending a gift that helps heal and lift the spirits of a loved one can make it cheery and bright.
We wish you a safe, healthy and cheerful holiday season!
