Winter Blues… Ideas to Chase the Blues Away

berries cookies 1

When I think of Winter Blues I think of décor, but the reality is the cold days of winter can cause a different type of winter blues for our friends, family and even ourselves!  Shari’s Berries asked me to take a look at their Get Well Gifts Page to share what I would give to a friend who is having a tough time!

   I was not compensated for this post.

I think this feet cookie bouquet is adorable!  This would be great for a friend who needs a push to make change.  “Put one foot in front of the other” Christmas jingle comes to mind!

Get Back on Your Feet Cookie Bouquet

I love this fruit and snack gift for a friend or family member who needs a little health kick to realize the benefits of a “cleaner” diet.  The simple act of receiving a gift delivery lets a person know they are on someone’s mind.

And, finally who doesn’t love a Starbucks care package!  This would be a great “thinking of you” for someone having a rough time.

Starbucks Recharge and Renew

I like to purchase Starbuck gift cards online in increments of $5.00 to include in “thinking of you” cards- especially this time of year when the holidays are over and we are like, “now what?”

I include these in my care packages for my college age daughter as a “thinking of you.”


What do you do for a friend or family member who needs some TLC to chase the blues away?

Let’s just say I speak from experience for this post! It’s amazing what you can grab for last minute gifts or stocking stuffers for the teens in your life. And, the suggestions are not just gift cards!
Merry Christmas!

I included gas and gift cards. Grab a magazine that the teen in your life might be found reading during the Christmas break. Remind them what it feels like to hold a glossy magazine, cooking utensils are an easy and inexpensive pickup for the students who live off campus, and who doesn’t love a little product love like body wash!
