Our family has been battling a nasty cold for the better part of a month now and I’m so thankful we finally seem to be improving! It seems as though everyone I know has caught some sort of bug lately which can only mean we’re at the height of cold and flu season.
One of the things getting me through my workday is sipping on cup after cup after cup of hot tea. After all the coughing, sniffling and sneezing I’ve been doing lately, a big mug of tea helps soothe my sore throat. How very fitting that Bigelow Tea is celebrating “Hot Tea Month” in January!
I’m sure you know someone who could use a little something to cheer them up this cold and flu season, and today’s DIY gift basket idea is the perfect way to show you’re thinking of them!
What I love about this DIY get well gift basket is that it can be assembled in a couple minutes using supplies you can find at your local Walmart. Hover over the photo below for links to the star of this gift basket – Bigelow Tea!
Get Well Gift Basket Supplies
- Bigelow Tea – two of my personal favorites are Cozy Chamomile and Plantation Mint
- Shoe Box – I used a plain white one but you can find shoe boxes with all sorts of colors and patterns
- Cough Drops
- Lip Balm
- Hand Sanitizer
- Printable Gift Tags (download the free printable gift tags right here)
- String or Ribbon
- Tissue Paper
This supply list may look long, but it’s all small items you can easily pick up at your local Walmart. The toughest part will be choosing tea flavors! I stood in the tea aisle for quite a while debating tea flavors because Bigelow has so many good ones to choose from.
Assembling Your Get Well Gift
Watch the video below to see how easy assembly is! Simply arrange your items inside the shoe box similar to how I did here and you’ll be set.
Tip: Tissue paper is helpful for adding height to items in the back of gift baskets. See how I used it to prop up the boxes of tea?
Free Printable Get Well Gift Tags
Although this gift basket is made entirely of storebought items, it still has that handmade look and feel thanks to the cute labels attached to everything.
Simply print these labels on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper (I recommend a heavier card stock but ordinary copy paper will work, too). Cut out the gift tags and attach them to each item using tape or string. That’s all there is to it!
