Get Well Mug for your Sick Friends

Get Well Mug to Make for Your Sick Friends | Louella Reese

Cold season is officially in full swing and if your friends are anything like me that means they are bound to be under the weather in the coming months. Since I get sick all of the time (I’m working on my immune system, promise) and know how crappy it can be, I decided to put together the ultimate Get Well Mug. This Get Well Mug is filled with all of the things someone under the weather may need. A few things to make the process easier, a couple to make it more comfortable, and some items to boost their immune system. It is super simple to put together yet such a sweet gesture to make your friend(s) feel better! 

The best part – the mugs can be completely catered to whatever your friend’s needs may be. My recommendation, make a few and keep them stashed away to have on hand whenever your friends come down with something. Then add or switch items as needed.

I filled the bottom of my mug with some crinkle paper and then placed all of the items on top. This helped the items to stick out a little bit and for everything to be seen. Just made things a little prettier – I’m all about a good presentation. You could also wrap up in cellophane and tie with a bow if you really want to bring your presentation game!

  8. This is so thoughtful. I think everyone likes to be treated a little when they’re sick.

    What a sweet idea for a friend who’s come down with a cold. If there is one thing we crave the most when we are sick it’s being taken care of.

    • Thank you Lyida! And I could not agree with you more – love when my husband or my mom spoil me when I’m sick. It means so much and definitely makes me feel better!
