The holidays are right around the corner and so is the season of sharing germs! My extended family gathers together during the holidays (All coming from different states). The running joke is who is going to bring the cold or flu virus with them. One year it was so bad the cousins were taking turns throwing up! Sadly that year it wasn’t a very festive holiday. One thing I have learned over the years is to be prepared! Preparing to combat the germs and Cold and Flu Symptoms the more fun our family has.


For the arrival of all the family this year I am going to be prepared and have a Cold, Cough and Flu Symptom Basket ready. This will assist in making our holidays enjoyable. No one likes to be under the weather during the holiday season. So I’ve compiled a few items to share with my guests to soothe the sickness. I am here to share my cute basket idea with you!

First head to your local Kroger Store (which in my case is my Smith’s Marketplace). One of the easiest ways to keep my home free from germs is to include a container of Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes in every single room of my house. Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes wipe away 99.9% of the most common allergens*. Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes make it easy to wipe down any hard non-porous surface or door handle in a matter of seconds. These are found in the household cleaning items aisle.

Listening to one of my teenagers or a sweet niece or nephew cough all night is not fun. To give them relief I have found my favorite cough product: Children’s Robitussin® Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM. This product is intended for children 4 and up. My favorite cough product for myself is Robitussin® Maximum Strength Cough & Chest DM. This product is for adults, 12 years and older.


My favorite thing about the Children’s Robitussin Honey is that not only does it relieve chest congestion but also mucus congestion and quiets children’s cough. Children’s Robitussin Honey formula contains 19.2% Real, *True Source Certified honey. Any of these items can be found in the Pharmacy section of your local Kroger store. To sweeten this deal right now there is a $1.25 off coupon through 1/4/19 that can be used on Robitussin products!


I love the Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold or to sleep well through the night I like the Theraflu Power Pods NighttimeSevere Cold.


Remember, Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold and Robitussin®  should not be used at the same time.


The pods are compatible with most single-serve coffee machines.  Daytime Power Pods Severe Cold and Nighttime Power Pods Severe Cold relieve symptoms including Nasal Congestion, Body aches, sore throat pain, fever, runny nose, sneezing and headaches.

Before finishing up the shopping trip a couple more items I like to include in my Seasonal Sickness Survival Basket are the Breathe® Right Extra Clear Nasal Strips and also some Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment.Sickness Survival store photo cold and flu


To work alongside the Theraflu and Robitussin are the Breathe® Right Extra Clear Nasal Strips. Finally being able to Lay down on my pillow to get some rest and all of a sudden one or both of my nasal passages is clogged! This symptom can be prevented by using Breathe® Right Extra Clear Nasal Strips. Trying a drug-free option may be the way to go for some of my guests and I want to definitely keep the options open.  Breathe Right assists in breathing better, sleeping better. Along with lifting and opening the nasal passages. Breathe Right Clear Nasal Strips use a 3M adhesive and can be used by people ages 5 years and older.
Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment is a nonprescription cold sore medication approved by the FDA to shorten healing time and the duration of symptoms. I love that I can pump a little onto my clean fingertip and apply to the cold sore.sickness survival products

Find a cute basket and add all the products as mentioned above to create your own basket! This is a simple, fast and easy way to show your guests that you care. (*disclaimer keep the basket out of the reach of children). I have a cute shelf in my kitchen I perch the basket upon and that way adults can easily see it but it is out of reach to the little hands!

My eyes spotted this cute wire chalkboard basket and I knew it was perfect for what I wanted to accomplish. Honestly, any basket can work as long as your guests know they can use any of the products inside. Labeling the basket is an easy way of letting them know!
