What’s the best gift for someone with pain? Something that they will use! So, my team scoured the internet to find these gifts for you. Cost was not an issue when looking for these items, just whether or not they could be used and enjoyed by people with chronic pain. I hope at least one of these things finds its way under your tree this holiday season.
Gifts of Comfort
Comfy pajamas and slippers can help make a bad morning feel a little better. A great choice for pajamas is a pajama gram (www.pajamagram.com). They even offer free gift wrapping!
Not sure what size pajamas to get? What about a cozy faux fur blanket? With over 3,000 5-star reviews, this one would make any bad pain day more tolerable.
Gifts of Convenience
I stumbled across this pill pack system the other day on Amazon. Where has this been all my life? I can fill up a month’s worth of pills and seal them. Now, I can throw them in my purse and go and not worry about them spilling out.
A meal delivery service is another great gift for convenience. Ones to try include: Home Chef (lots of meals to choose from which start at $7.99), Terra’s Kitchen (unique delivery vessel and based on the Mediterranean Lifestyle), and Daily Harvest (for the superfood ingredient lover on your list).
Gifts to Ease Symptoms
Sometimes noise and light can aggravate anyone’s pain. These gifts are just the remedy!
Tinted glasses can help ease the light sensitivity that can lead to migraines or other headaches. TheraSpecs (www.theraspecs.com) are precision tinted, thoughtfully designed eyewear that filter out the harmful light that triggers migraines, headaches, eyestrain, and other conditions.
Noise canceling headphones have several health benefits including reducing stress and reducing hearing loss. These headphones can be very expensive (over $390) or very affordable (less than $100).
Gifts of Care
As someone who suffers from pain on a daily basis, the best gifts are those of caring. My family (being understanding with me when I’m not feeling good) helping me put on my socks and shoes, or just snuggling with me on the sofa are the best gifts of all.
My team and I are will be taking time off to spend with family but we’ll be back on January 2nd! Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones.
