If you’ve got out-of-town family and special guests staying over for Thanksgiving or Christmas, a gift basket is a great way to say welcome this holiday. It’s is a big hit with visitors and it conveys your hospitality in grand style.These welcome baskets are not only a nice way to dress up your guest bedroom or bathroom, but it’s a thoughtful gesture to help guests stay healthy now that germ fighting season is upon us.
In order to address a variety of germ fighting maladies, I created basket featuring an assortment of products including: Abreva Pump; Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, 32-35ct; Theraflu Severe Cold & Cough Daytime Powder; and TYLENOL® Cold+ Flu Severe Warming Honey Liquid.
Since my family makes running in the local Turkey Trot 5K part of our Thanksgiving tradition, I thought these particular products would come in handy. Running in the chilly weather sometimes aggravates cold sores. Abreva is great because it’s easy to apply and it actually helps heals cold sores when you first get that tingling sensation that one is on the way.
If my guests should feel achy after the race, they can reach for their basket and take Theraflu Severe Daytime Cold & Cough Powders. I chose berry infused with menthol and green tea flavors.
It provides fast-acting relief by turning up the heat on cold and flu symptoms without making my house guests feel drowsy. This way they can feel better and stay alert while watching the big Thanksgiving Day football games on TV.
For those who need to quiet coughs or clear congestion, I tucked away TYLENOL® Cold + Flu Severe in their goodies. It a comforting warming liquid that’s ideal for tackling coughs and other bug-like symptoms while helping to relieve head and body aches.
Wiping down surfaces with Clorox Disinfecting Wipes is a proactive way to kill 99.9% of germs* that can live on kitchen counter tops, coffee tables and other hard non-porous household gathering spots for up to 48 hours.
Fortunately, these products were featured at a special savings price at Kroger when I used my Kroger Plus Card. I found these over-the-counter products in the Kroger Signature store’s Pharmacy area in the cold and flu aisle, whereas the disinfecting wipes were located in the cleaning products section.
