Since a week back, I have begun to think of a first-aid kit as a great gift idea for families. What made me think of this unusual gift idea was a sudden minor accident of the hostess at a lunch my family was invited to. The hosts were a nice couple who invited us over for a lunch. The hostess was apparently frying something (perhaps, some fries) in the cooking oil and just in the matter of moments, we witnessed her having a lot of hot oil spilled on her skin. Ah, thanks to the freezing cold water that was running through the kitchen tap that eased the burning sensation a bit for them. However, there was no first aid kit instantly available. Her husband and I, both ran to a local store to buy some cotton, antiseptic, bandages, and an ointment for immediate relief. Just thought about this and concluded that a first-aid kit can be one of the most useful things, and hence a great gift idea. Think about it and please share your thoughts!
