Gift Guide | The Under-The-Weather-Friend
Here are five things that make great gifts when giving to someone who is feeling under-the-weather (and why we love them):
#1 - Peppermint Tea: Peppermint tea is known to ease upset stomachs, help with headaches, relieve clogged sinuses and so much more. A hot cup of tea is also so soothing on a sore, dry throat. Gift Smack's favourite peppermint tea is from Calgary Company, Rosso.
#2 - Ginger Tea: Known to help with many of the same things as peppermint (upset stomachs, headaches etc.) and a great flavour alternative for anyone who doesn't love peppermint. Our fav is from Canadian Company, Tealish.
#3 - Linen Hot + Cold Therapy Pillow. You know that feeling when you're sick, first you get the chills and you can't warm up? That's why we love the Therapy bags, heat them or freeze them, they're really your best friend when you're not feeling well. A welcome relief for sore muscles, cramps, or night sweats with the addition of lavender to enhance your relaxation experience. Linen is a highly durable, hypoallergenic, breathable natural fibre made from the stalk of the flax plant, making it the perfect fabric for this highly eco-functional therapy tool. Gift Smack's go-to for therapy pillows is Canadian brand, Halfmoon (did we mention they have a washable cover?).
#4 - So Luxury Coco Oat Soak. Did you ever see the Frank's Red Hot sauce commercial where the granny 'put that *&$# on everything'? Well, we feel the same way about So Luxury's best selling soak, we use it to solve every problem! Dry skin, inflammation, sore muscles, you name it, this soak soothes each ache and discomfort. Even if you're not a bather, take the time to indulge yourself with this amazing soak. Trust us, you'll love it!
#5 - Unscented, unflavoured lip balm. Dry, chapped lips are common when struggling with cold and flu season, and a nourishing, moisturizing lip balm is a necessity for Canadian winters! Our current crush is Canadian brand, Apt 6 Skin Co.
