The cold weather is finally here and although that means it is the beginning of the holiday season, it can also be the start of colds and other ailments. There is nothing worse than feeling under the weather, but there are ways to help friends and family feel better faster.

A great way to help a loved one get better is to help them with tasks they have to do everyday so they can rest instead. Offering to take their kids to school or extracurricular activities for the week is sure to help them. You could also make a few meals that their families can just heat up and serve.

If you can't be there to help in person, but you still want your friend or family member to know you're thinking about them, why not send get well flowers? Nothing says "I hope you feel better soon" quite like a gorgeous arrangement of blooming florals. A collection like Splendid Surprise by Teleflora is sure to impress. This bouquet of green miniature hydrangea, lavender roses and purple alstroemeria come in a pretty glass fuchsia cube that the ill person can reuse when he or she is feeling better.
