Love Is The Best Medicine

There is nothing worse than not being able to be there for your partner when they need you, like when they are sick. It feels even crappier when you are the one that got them sick then had to leave. Which happened to me one time; I got sick on our trip to Disneyland, and by the time I had to leave for school, he had gotten sick.

I felt guilty and I wished I could’ve been there to take care of him since it was my fault he got sick in the first place. So I thought a care package was the next best thing. This is an all-inclusive-guarenteed-to-make-you-feel-better-asap “Get-Well Soon” care package.


Here are essential items to include:

  • Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup
  • Airborne or Emergen -C
  • Chapstick or Carmex
  • Box of tissues
  • Pocket-sized tissue packets (to blow your nose on the go)
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Mug
  • Halls
  • Tea
  • Honey (mixed with hot water and a lemon soothes the throat)
  • Pleated face mask (this one is kinda more of a joke, but hey it can help prevent the spread of germs)

I should’ve have made a cute card to go along with it but I ended up writing a short note instead. After all, it’s the thought that counts and he loved the package. You should have one of these ready to ship so that as soon as your S.O. starts feeling sick, you can ship it and it will get there by the time their cold is in full gear.

What would you add to a “Get Well Soon” care package for your S.O.?

  1. I’ve always wanted to do this but my baby is only ever sick when we are together (I think he’s allergic to me haha). Super sweet and thoughtful though of you!

    This is a pretty great package, but if I were to add anything, …hmm… perhaps a dvd or book he’d like since you usually just feel like laying around when you’re sick. And perhaps some Advil cold and flu (is Emergen C the same type of thing? I’ve never heard of it, or is it more like Cold FX?). Also there are these delicious throat numbing suckers I always love when I’m sick, so I might throw those in too.

    P.s. We’re both closing the distance soon! 😀

    • Emergen-C is like an immunity booster. Yea medicine like Advil and NyQuil is also a good idea. So is the movie or dvd.
      Now that you’re closing the distance you’ll always be there to take care of him and he’ll be there for you as well! ❤

      How long did you do long distance? For us it will be 3 years!
