Whether you’re at home, in college, or starting your own family, care packages are always a simple and easy way to show someone you’re thinking of them. This season, make sure your loved ones know you care by sending them a care package filled with everything you need to get through the winter. 

Tea:

Herbal teas containing some sort of honey, peppermint, or cloves will help soothe a sore throat.

Medicines such as Nyquil help you get the sleep you need to recover. Liquid medicine is always a safe choice instead of having to swallow pills.
