Welcome Back Readers,
You guys have a lot of great resolutions, I hope we all stick with them and make them a permanent thing! The following winners will definitely have a great head start. Congratulations to Will (January 9, 2012 at 5:07 am), Natalie J Vandenberghe ( January 8, 2012 at 12:41 am), Donna Joyce (January 6, 2012 at 10:12 am), Carol (January 6, 2012 at 5:37 am), and Jonathan Ammons (January 6, 2012 at 12:18 pm)! Send your info to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get your Modesto Fruit Baskets out.
January, as we talked about last week, is the time for healthy resolutions, fresh starts, and eating right. Well, January also happens to be the worst time for flu-season and feeling like garbage no matter how many apples you eat. A few people in our office are already out with some sort of sickness, and I could do without a few weeks of coughing, sniffles, sneezing, and body aches. Last year during Chicago’s “Snowmageddon,” I was snowed into my apartment with a case of pneumonia. Literally every store was closed (mostly because it was covered in snow) and my contact with the outside world was limited to a few glances at the internet when I wasn’t dozing off from medication. At this point, I was pretty sure a dog sled team lead by Balto was going to be my only salvation. But luckily, I had a super awesome roommate who was there to take care of me and generally make sure I didn’t die. From my brief moments of consciousness, I know that she made me hot tea and cut up apples for me with a side of peanut butter so I could get some strength back and food in me. It was basically the best I could ask for.
It’s good to know that I have a really good friend who would take care of me and wish me well. I’m sure all of you have just as great of friends, and even are that friend who likes to help. So, if you’re looking for a nice Get Well gift to send, we’ve got you covered. Any fruit basket would obviously be a great choice because, well duh fruit. But let me highlight some of our specific gifts that I think will warm anyone’s heart (and mostly stomach!).
The Soup’s On Gourmet Soup gift basket looks absolutely delicious to me right now (especially after not being able to find a place that delivers soup to the office). It comes with several soups like chicken and rice, creamy potato, crackers, large soup mugs, and the actual basket looks great. This is gift basket is sure to brighten up any ill friend’s day.
Probably our cutest gift is the Friend on the Mend Doctor’s House Call gift basket (pictured at the top of the article with the super awesome red basket). Absolutely adorable gift made to look like a doctor’s bag, complete with chicken noodle soup, word search book, bandage and nurse cookies, tea, honey straw, crackers, and more! I know that anyone who receives this will be more than happy to call you their friend.
Hopefully all you lovely readers are in tip-top shape, getting lots of sleep, drinking tea, and getting all your vitamins. Either way, in the comments section below (1-2 paragraphs), tell me a “Get Well” related story! I’ll be giving away FIVE of the Friend on the Mend Doctor’s House Call gift baskets to some lucky and random winners.
