How We Are Giving Immune Support This Holiday Season

If you lived around here, I’d probably invite you over.  I love having friends stop by, and whether I was expecting you or not, you are welcome.  My house is always in some varying state of disarray, but I won’t let it bother me if you don’t.  The friends who do stop by regularly all have kids, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that I’m taking some extra measures for our guests by giving immune support this winter.


We had some friends come stay with us for the weekend.  We hadn’t seen them in quite awhile, so I really wanted to make sure that they felt welcome and appreciated, so I decided to set up a holiday guest basket for them.  I wanted it to be something they could use while they were here, as well as take with them.  I know they have had a tough year, so I wanted it to be special and really warm their hearts.  Here are a few things I included:


  • Ester-C Immune Support
  • Winter scented hand soap
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Body Wash
  • Bottled Water
  • Candy
  • Handmade Card
  • Caribou Gift Card



We were already headed to Walmart, and the kids love when I let them putz around and look at every. single. thing.  We spent a lot of time picking out the right scented items for our basket, and when we got home, we couldn’t wait to get it ready for when they got here.


I couldn’t help myself and had to swing through Caribou and get a gift card because whenever we manage it, this friend and I leave the kids with the dads for a little while and sit and chat for a bit, so I wanted to make sure we did it this time too.  You never know when you will wake up thirsty, so I wanted to leave a bottle out for them.  The kids decided we needed to leave some of the Andes mints we had left from our cookie baking as a special treat {that no doubt their 4 year old will eat}.


I wanted to give it a holiday feel, so we got some wintery hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.  I figured it would be a great idea to add in some hand sanitizer and some Ester-C.  If you haven’t added Ester-C to your winter routine yet, you should check it out on Facebook and Twitter.   It is a great way to support your immune system no matter what time of year.  I have started taking Ester-C to support my immunity.  My immune system needs some round the clock support to keep up with the kids, and I know our friends could use the extra support as well.  My goal with this guest basket is to support our friends health as we dive into the holiday season and into the New Year, and being able to feature a product we know and trust makes it easy to share with them.



Do you have guest baskets for family and friends?  What do you include in these baskets {or would include}?
