Care baskets. Something that seems to not truly exist much anymore. A simple gesture can go a long way. I wanted to team up with Kleenex Brand to showcase that there are more than one occasion to show you care than just waiting until someone is sick. Gone are the days that someone brings over a bowl of soup, some Kleenex Facial Tissues, a glass of orange juice, and a basket heaping with love and care.
Feeling nasty is not just about cold and flu season. Allergies can be awful, what about the last stages of pregnancy? All our senses and energy are just shot during that time. Someone just get out of the hospital and laid up and lonely? Care packages are so often though of as something sent to military but care packages and baskets can still be a joyous gift to receive to feel loved.
A few times a fun care basket would be an afterthought to you but an amazing thought to someone else: A gift for a widow, a new Mom, A grandparent who can’t visit often, A gift for a parent who is sending their kid off to college (kleenex facial tissues are a must here!), a stranger, and the homeless. A care basket or package is something your heart does in a material way to share that you care.
I know that when flu season does pounce on us, I head to Walmart right away to stock up on essentials. Being prepared for when my husband is acting like a baby makes the task of taking care of him much easier. Caring for your loved ones when they are not sick can also help with preventative care. I asked my husband what he would offer me if I was sick, his answer, “A massage coupon.” Now he knows my language. I make sure to keep some fast access essentials in our home. If my neighbor was feeling down, wether sick or sad…a pumpkin muffin and a tall class of orange juice would perk her up I’m sure!
When my Mom is feeling cold because her immune system is not quite right, I am always ready with a hot bowl of chicken noodle soup. The one thing that every gift basket or care package has in comment is our favorite Kleenex facial tissue, from sniffles, to sneezes, and tear drops that are shed…they are soft and reliable. The simple act of having a tissue to offer a stranger who sneezes near you, that shows you care!
Kleenex Brand wants to prove that no matter how big or small your sharing moment is, the act of giving a Kleenex Facial Tissue to anyone in need, can connect one another and lift someone’s spirits. With the Kleenex Ultra Soft Tissues you get a little extra TLC on the nose, and they are great for delicate skin like teaching toddlers how to blow their noses.
It doesn’t take much to spread germs but it takes a lot more it seems to show you care about the people around you. The CDC suggests that if you cough and sneeze within a tissue, to throw it away and prevent spreading the illness to others. Germs are passed away super fast at work, in school, and around public transit.
Right now you can take advantage of an exclusive offer at Walmart while you stock up on your Kleenex Facial Tissues. You will receive a $5 VUDU credit when you purchase either a 4-pack of 75ct Kleenex Ultra Soft Tissues or Kleenex Tissues with Lotion.
