Cold and Flu Season: What to Include in a Get Well Kit
It’s autumn once again and you know what that means. Yes, pumpkin carving and days devoted to eating as much turkey as you can in multiple sittings, but it’s also cold and flu season. Quality Logo Products was hit a few weeks ago with pesky bug that managed to get at least one person from every department in the matter of a week and a half and it’s only October!
Chances are you or your customers have seen this happen in their workplace too, so use this opportunity to expand your company’s name with promotional products. Need a few suggestions besides giving out cough drops? Perfect, because that’s why we’re here!
What’s the one thing you want when your head and nose are plugged up? A soft and warm place to snuggle up and fall asleep until you feel better. A Sweatshirt Blanket combines two wonderful things into one promotional product. Nothing feels as nice as a cozy sweatshirt that you’ve had for years and is properly broken in. But you can’t wrap it around yourself and nap all afternoon in it. With these promotional blankets you get the cozy feeling of that beloved sweatshirt and the ability to curl up on the sofa and have every inch of you covered up. They’re also great to bring along to outdoor sporting events during the fall and spring when the Mother Nature hasn’t received the memo that it shouldn’t be as cold or as rainy as it currently is.
We all know we’re supposed to get as much sleep as possible while we’re sick so our body’s natural antibodies can kill the bug that’s making us sick. But being able to sleep a solid block of hours can be tricky with sunlight streaming in through your windows. Having an E-Z Comfort Set will keep the outside world from creeping into your sleep cycle and disrupting it. The mask will keep light from waking you up and the foam earplugs will muffle the sound of those obnoxious tweeting birds outside who assume everyone is awake at 4:37 in the morning.
Soup or tea or even applesauce usually always tastes good when you’re fighting a sore throat or stubborn cough. Whatever sounds tasty to your customers can be served up perfectly in these Spooner Mugs so they can get back to resting up and less time searching for a clean bowl. These promotional mugs come with a spoon and have a handy place to hold it when they need to set the mug down. The bright and vibrant colors available for ordering them in will attract all the attention to your brand’s name!
We won’t be like your mother and tell you that if you would’ve prevented getting sick in the first place, you wouldn’t be sick at home right now. We’ll leave that up to her. For the next cold/flu season that usually hits in the spring, be prepared with these Antibacterial Hand Sanitizers (1 Oz., Full Color) in your purse or briefcase. Your customers will love and appreciate receiving them and you’ll love the 1 ½” x 7/8” full color decal for your imprint. Everyone can benefit from these custom hand sanitizers being given out.
Drinking tons of liquids is imperative to getting better sooner. Help your customers flush out all those germs faster and prevent dehydration by including an Alpine Aluminum Water Bottle (25 Oz.) in your flu/cold kit. They come in four great colors but the choices for your imprint are almost immeasurable. Go with a clever message about surviving the cold & flu season of 2012 and each time your customers look at it they’ll remember what an awesome company you are for caring enough to want to keep them healthy.
Nobody enjoys being sick. Oh sure, pretending to be sick on a random Friday or Monday to get out of work is one thing. But dealing with a fever, chills, body aches, sore throat, and a runny nose is nobody’s idea of a good time.
Whether you hand out these kits to your customers or employees when you hear they’re sick or give them out to everyone to prevent them getting sick, you can help them to rest and relax so their body can fight off the germs that are keeping them under the weather or may eventually. Your company will be a hero!
