Care Packages for Sick Loved Ones

By Donna Stark

Do you have a friend or family member who is stuck at home and sick in bed? Do you wish you could do something to lift their spirits while keeping a safe distance? Well, you can! A care package is always a welcomed treat, so just grab a basket or box, start filling it up, and drop it off on their doorstep. Here are some ideas on what to include that will be sure to brighten anyone's day ... and they may even bring some much-needed relief to the person you love!


Many people swear by the healing properties that a cup of hot tea can bring, which is why it has become one of the most favorite beverages to drink while feeling sick. Check out all the different options you can choose from.

  • Peppermint tea - Peppermint tea has significant antiviral properties and can help soothe a sore throat, suppress coughs, and open sinuses
  • Chamomile tea - Chamomile tea can help a person fall asleep (which is exactly what the body needs when sick) and may help reduce inflammation
  • Ginger tea - Ginger tea is the most common go-to for sore throats and upset stomachs
  • Green tea - Green tea is packed with antioxidants and the perfect remedy for sinus infections

Cozy Comforts

Everyone needs a soft, cozy blanket when they are sick, so head to the store and pick out the fluffiest one you can find. Your loved one will definitely use it to fight those chills as they are napping, watching TV, or cuddling with that box of tissues.


It's hard enough to find time to cook in our everyday lives, let alone when we are sick! Don't let your loved one live off of crackers and toast. Fill a couple of mason jars with your homemade chicken noodle soup or buy some premade soup from the store. Whatever you send, your loved one will be incredibly grateful to have a delicious meal to eat. On top of that, you know it will be packed with all the nutrients the body needs to heal.


Even though a bouquet of flowers may not help your loved one physically, it will bring a smile to their face, and that can be extremely impactful. Find out what their favorite flowers are and brighten their home with this sweet display of affection.

On the Road to Recovery

Care packages are the perfect gift to send and mean so much to the recipient, especially when they are filled with items that help the healing process and bring a smile to your loved one! Here's to good health for everyone!
