Create a care package for an ill spouse.

Setting Up Your Sick Kit

The Sick Kit is so easy to throw together! You can even snag most things from around the house and your spouse is sure to appreciate having everything from this cold or flu kit within arm’s reach. If you want to be extra considerate, run out and grab your patient’s favorite treats. You’ll also want to make sure you’ve got a bucket or some type of container on hand, then you’ll be all set.

Editable labels to personalize your sick kit.

Start attaching tags and arranging your items in the bucket. We’ve included versatile, pill-shaped tags to attach to each item your spouse might need to get back on their feet in short order. Not only that, but we’ve provided editable blank pill tags if you want to add some special treats.

Care Package for Sick Boyfriend Ideas

If you need something for your man or an idea for a sick care package for your girlfriend, we are here for you! This needs to be thoughtful, but also useful, after all, no one needs random tchotchkes when they’re sick! Just in case you need some ideas to get you started, we’ve made a list of some thoughtful items you might want to include in the sick kit.

The perfect pick-me-up on a sick day.

Stay Hydrated
Encourage your sweetie to keep drinking their fluids by including a bottle of water, ginger ale or Gatorade in their sick kit. Don’t forget a straw!

Soothe Your Throat
If your spouse has a cold, add some cough drops or some lemon tea with honey to their kit, in order to ease their scratchy throat.

Breathe Easier
Prepare for congestion by nasal spray, Vick’s vapo-rub, and most importantly, tissues to their sick kit.

This would be great to give next time your spouse is sick.

Eat for Energy
Don’t let them forget to snack throughout the day. Include easy to grab snacks like a granola bar, applesauce, soup and crackers.

Rest is Restorative
My doctor always tells me the best cure for anything is sleep. Ensure that your spouse is snoozing by boosting their sick kit with heir favorite comfy PJs and slippers. Eye masks or a warm, cuddly blanket would also be a great choice.

Shorten Your Sickness
Add a little help in the form of vitamin C, immune support tablets, decongestants or essential oils.

Make the best out of a sick day.

Silence is Golden
Include a small note pad and a pen so it doesn’t hurt to communicate, make sure he’s got his phone handy so he can text if he needs anything, or stick in a pair of earplugs so the sounds of the house don’t disrupt rest.

Entertain Yourself
Being sick can be SO frustrating, especially when it goes on for days. It’s crucial to keep your mind occupied so it’s a great idea for your sick kit to include your spouse’s favorite magazines, a book, a Netflix movie list, or a video game.

Send love with the spouse sick kit.

Ease Your Aches
Provide your ailing honey with a heating pad. We are also big fans of BioFreeze for muscle pain.

Refresh Yourself
Stock your patient with hand sanitizer and face wipes. Lip balm and lotion are also essentials for rejuvenating dry skin.

Indulge in a Treat
Give your sick spouse some joy by providing them with chocolate, candy, or cookies (maybe all of the above?!) in their sick kit!

Extra Ideas for Your Flu Kit

Does your poor, sick love have a favorite snack or comfort? {Mine LOVES ginger ale ice cubes!} Be the ultimate attentive spouse and include anything else you know they’ll love to make it personal. Using the free Adobe program, fill in with whatever text matches your treat, then add it to your care package. Maybe even throw in some love coupons for a massage or a few silly love notes to brighten their day!

A love pill for your flu kit.

Complete your care package by printing the prescription label and affixing it to an old medicine bottle. Now don’t leave that bottle empty! Fill it up with mints for fresh breath or a sweet treat for a sick spouse! Not only is this sick care package for girlfriend, boyfriend, or spouse great for healing, but it will be a bright spot in their day.

Help your sweetie feel better with this gift.

How perfect would it be to create this sick kit ahead of time? Can you imagine being totally prepared before sickness even hits?! When your sweetie comes down with a bug all you’ll have to do is pull your bucket out of hiding!

Make your honey smile next time they sniffle.

Be prepared to help your love feel better – quick!! And if they are on the mend but not 100% ready to get out into the real world, perhaps you could have date night at home this week! Not only do we have a great list of 2 Player Games, but we also have a list of 2 Player CARD Games. Get ready for some rest, relaxation, and a lot of quality time.
