Sick Kit

Hello friends! With it being winter time and ‘sick season,’ I thought I would share the Sick Kit that I put together to give to friends or family members who are ill. It’s never fun or a good time to be sick, but it’s always a good time for a surprise gift basket on your doorstep… especially when you’re sick!

This Sick Kit is perfect for someone who is under the weather, filled with all the sick day necessities! I’m going to show you how with a quick run into Kroger, you’ll find trusted products that will have your friend or family member feeling back on their feet in no time!

Here’s what you will need to put a Sick Kit together…

  • Cute basket or crate
  • Campbell’s® Chicken Noodle 4 Count 4 Pack
  • Lipton Daily Support Herbal Supplement with Green Tea
  • Original Premium Saltine Crackers
  • ExpressMax Severe Cold & Flu Caplets
  • TYLENOL® Cold + Flu Severe Day/Night
  • Jar of homemade Chocolate Peanut Clusters
  • Sick Kit printable tag and twine to tie it on

Why do all of these components make the perfect Sick Kit? I’m so glad you asked, friend!

A cute basket or crate will make packaging up your Sick Kit so much easier.

Campbell’s® soups are a staple in our home when we are sick. For generations moms have turned to Campbell’s® Condensed Soup to soothe and comfort. It warms you up when you need it the most! 

Lipton’s new wellness range of herbal supplements are boosted with botanicals and are carefully blended with essential oils known for their wellness benefits. 

Nabisco PREMIUM is the #1 saltine cracker and pairs perfectly with Campbell’s® soups… they were practically made for each other, am I right?

When I need powerful relief but without the prescription, Theraflu is my best friend. 

TYLENOL® is the #1 doctor recommended pain relief brand and the Day Night pack comes in convenient caplets to relieve painful cold and flu symptoms like coughing, congestion, and sore throat both day and night. (Remember to use only as directed.) 

And lastly, sometimes you just need a quick, chocolatey pick-me-up when you’re sick, so these Chocolate Peanut Clusters are the perfect solution! A chocolatey crunch that you can pop right in your mouth. I like to package them up in a jar to give out as gifts. 

I thought I’d share the easy recipe for these Chocolate Peanut Clusters with you too so that you can make them for your Sick Kit! You’ll need chocolate melts and peanuts for this recipe… that’s it! Melt your chocolate down and add peanuts to it. There’s really no specific measurements… I usually eyeball it until I feel like there’s a good chocolate to peanut ratio. Stir well and then put spoonfuls onto a Silpat or parchment paper. Let cool in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. Package in a glass jar when cooled! Easy and delicious.

After you purchase all of your supplies at your local Kroger store and make the Chocolate Peanut Clusters, arrange them all in the crate or basket, print out the Sick Kit tags, and attach it to the crate with a piece of twine. It’s ready to surprise your sick friend with and make her/his day a little brighter! And if you want to save a bit of money, be sure to grab your digital coupons.

What do you do to kick your cold’s butt and get back to yourself again? I’d love to hear your tips and tricks too!

College Bathroom Tote Gift

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and LISTERINE. All opinions are mine alone. #BackToBold #CollectiveBias

It’s here, friends! Back-to-school season is upon us and we are ready for it! This year I have a niece who is getting ready to head off to college, and I couldn’t be more excited for her. I have the best memories from my college days and living in the dorms with friends. Going off to college, you feel so bold and confident… ready to take on the world! I wanted to do a little something to congratulate my niece and show her just how excited I am for her new adventure, so I made her a College Bathroom Tote gift with all the essentials she’ll need. 

To make the perfect college bathroom tote gift for your college student, you’ll need:

  • basket or tote
  • hand towel
  • sponge or lofa 
  • razors
  • toothbrush with holder and toothpaste
  • shampoo/conditioner
  • body wash
  • ribbon

Now all you have to do is put everything into the tote or basket. Make sure you make it look pretty!

Can’t go into college with bad breath! I love LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE because it has 6 benefits in one, including helping prevent cavities, killing bad breath germs, cleaning your whole mouth, freshening breath, etc. Plus it’s from the #1 Dentist Recommended Mouthwash Brand!

Once everything is inside of your tote, tie a cute ribbon around it to finish it off.

I also love LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE ZERO ALCOHOL because the zero-alcohol formula cleans deep to kill millions of bad breath germs for a healthier mouth, with a milder taste. So if you aren’t a fan of a strong minty flavor, this is the mouthwash for you.

Right now if you buy 3, you get a $5 Target Gift Card! The offer is good (6/29-9/9) and is valid online and in store. Who doesn’t want a $5 gift card to Target?! You can even put that into your College Bathroom Tote gift! To make it even easier, you can hover over the image below to shop!

This gift tote is so simple to make, and I just know your college student will be grateful for a gift that they will actually put to use on a regular basis! Help prepare your college student to Go Bold with LISTERINE®! 

Mommy Tell All Monday: At Home Pedicure Gift Basket

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

Hello friends and welcome to Mommy Tell All Monday… an almost weekly series dedicated to all things motherhood! And today I’m sharing a fun gift that is perfect to give your momma friends. It’s an easy gift to put together and I guarantee they will love it. Check out how I put together this At Home Pedicure Gift Basket, featuring Amopé Pedi Perfect and Amopé Foot Cream.

Pedi Gift Basket5

As busy mommas, it’s so difficult for us to get away for a relaxing pedicure. I remember the days when I’d get a pedicure every couple of weeks… so spoiled I was and I didn’t even know it! Now I’m lucky enough to get a fresh coat of polish on my toes before hurrying out the door to church. Setting aside 20-30 minutes to myself each week to give myself a pedi after the kids go to bed…that more manageable for me, and probably for my other mom friends too. So I decided to create a gift basket for a momma friend who deserves a little extra TLC. 

For this At Home Pedicure Gift Basket, I purchased all of my supplies at Target. I picked up the basket, cotton balls, nail polish,Amopé Pedi Perfect and Amopé Foot Cream for the gift. I even used the Cartwheel offer (11/2-11/22) and got 10% off of the Amopé Pedi Perfect! Love that app!

Pedi Gift Basket1

First I emptied the cotton balls into the basket…

Pedi Gift Basket3

Then I placed all of the pedi supplies in the basket, wedged into the cotton balls. I chose the new Amopé Pedi Perfect and Amopé Foot Cream products for this basket because when paired, they add moisture for even softer, healthier feet. 

Pedi Gift Basket4

I added scraps of vintage fabric to the handles and created a cute tag to attach with a piece of twine.

You can print off the “I’m Pedi Thankful For You” tags HERE. There are 4 cute options. Please remember all printable freebies are for personal use only. 

Pedi Gift Basket7

Now that my basket is all put together, it’s ready to bless one of my mommy friends. 

When you head to Target to pick up your own Amopé Pedi Perfect and Amopé Foot Cream products, be sure to do a few things…

-use the Cartwheel deal to get 10% off from 11/2-11/22

-get a $5 Target gift card when you purchase one Pedi Perfect from 11/9-11/22

-shop for these products on the foot care aisle, not the beauty care aisles.

  Pedi Gift Basket6

Can you think of one momma friend who you are {pedi} thankful for? Why not bless her with an At Home Pedicure Gift Basket?!  I know my feet could use a little extra TLC… let’s #RespectUrFeet with Amopé Pedi Perfect and Amopé Foot Cream. 

Thanks for stopping by today friends. I hope you have a great week! 


Happy Handmade Holidays: Life of Pi Gift Basket

I’m so excited to share today’s gift idea with you! Although it’s not completely handmade, I did pick out and coordinate a gift basket with fabulous products from World Market. We’ll call it semi-handmade. This basket is perfect for the avid reader, movie watcher, and dreamer of world travel!

I LOVE a good book-turn-to-movie, don’t you?! Right now World Market has exclusive Life of Pi products! Have you read the book or seen the movie yet?

Life of Pi is the story of an Indian boy named Pi, a zookeeper’s son, who survives a
disaster at sea and is thrown into an epic journey. While adrift in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with another a
fearsome Bengal tiger. The movie opens in theaters November 21, 2012. 
You can watch the trailer for Life of Pi here:!/watch-trailer
I took my girl with me to World Market and we had a good time putting our Life of Pi gift basket together.
It was easy for me to put together the gift basket just by using the fabulous products from the World Market Life of Pi display. I found a beautiful basket…
And filled it with various Life of Pi products such as the book, ornament, and tea. I added a few other goodies to make this gift basket even more fabulous.

Wouldn’t this be the perfect gift basket for an at-home date night? Dinner, tea, snacks, and a new book to cuddle up with…in preparation for the movie of course. 
(I have to read the book before I see the movie…how about you?)
Here’s the whole basket put together…
Who would you make a Life of Pi gift basket for?
