It’s that time of year: cold and flu season. The days may finally be getting longer, but it’s still pretty cold out there and summer is still a long way away. (Insert crying face emoji). If you have a loved one suffering from the common cold now or preparing to confront seasonal allergies in a few weeks, it’s a good time to stock up on get well cards! If possible, we highly recommend hand delivering these cards with a bowl of chicken noodle soup. From clever puns to bunnies dressed as nurses, here are twelve get well cards to provide the perfect pick-me-up for those in need.
