Oreo Cookie Bouquets are a Great Way to Brighten You Camper’s Care Packages

comments 0

Whether your child is a first-time camper, a summer camp veteran, or even a part of the camp staff, receiving a care package at mail call will always add to what is probably already a fun day! Care packages are a great way to send a little love while your child is away, and also gives your child a wonderful way to share some goodies with their cabin mates or camp friends. Here’s an idea for building the perfect camp care package:

Cookie Bouquet Centerpiece: Start building your care package around a centerpiece, such as a cookie bouquets. An Oreo cookie bouquet is a great option because it looks fun and contains yummy treats, but the cookies are sealed in packages that can be stored safely away from the temptation of insects and other critters until your camper is ready to enjoy them.

Reading Materials: Quick-read comic books like Archie comics will give your child something entertaining to look at during rest periods or before bed, and once they are finished with it, they can trade another camper for a comic book they haven’t read yet! Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean they shouldn’t keep their reading skills sharp, either.

Puzzles and Games: Small puzzles or handheld (non-electronic!) games will give your camper something amusing to play with during rainy days or downtime between activities.

Toiletries: Your camper’s toiletry supplies might run low over the course of the summer, or a cabin mate might be in need of something. Small items like travel toothpaste and deodorant, hair ties, packets of sunscreen, and bug spray are always a good idea.

These are just a few ideas to pair with a cookie bouquet to create the perfect care package for your camper! Get creative with the packing materials or box décor and they’ll have a great time receiving, opening, and using their package.

How to Cheer Up From Winter Blues

comments 0

During the winter months when days are shorter and nights are darker, many people can experience a significant change in mood and stress level known as the winter blues. Many people brush off these feelings, but some people have a difficult time adjusting to the seasonal shift. Here are some great ways to cheer up from the winter blues:

 

Go on a quick walk

Even if it’s too cold outside, a quick stroll down the hallway can give you the burst of energy you need to get through the day.

Watch a funny movie or TV show

Researchers have found that sometimes laughter truly is the best medicine. According to Psychology Today, laughing releases endorphins, or feel-good chemicals in our brain.

Read a book

It can be easy to fall into the trap of overthinking and the best thing to do is refocus your brain on reading and turning the page.

Share with a friend or family

Studies show that sharing with someone can improve your overall mood. Surprise a loved one with tickets to their favorite sports game or an assortment of delicious gourmet cookies. Bisket Baskets offers gifts like the get well cookie bouquet that are buzzing with handcrafted gourmet cookies.

Don’t let the cold weather get you down by following our tips for getting through the winter blues. And when you’re looking to cheer someone up throughout the year, check out our many gift baskets and bouquets.
