You all know that 2017 was not a kind year for me (at least, since that last week of February). A humbling experience in just how much a body, a person can go through. Needless to say, the holidays tend to (are known to) be difficult for people with chronic conditions, in periods of turmoil in their lives, etc. It’s definitely not easy and nor is there actually a “physical gift” that can ever heal chronic pains. I’m sure loved ones wish a magic cure could be found for their ailing or struggling family members, and I wish there was too. I don’t even have a “Christmas List” this year, it feels wrong in some way (we can’t always ask for medical bills to go away or a lifetime supply of Zofran (kidding)!). Our loved ones already to so much for us, but if you are a loved one looking to give a little something special here are 25 gift ideas for someone living with a chronic illness to jumpstart your thinking process.
3: There is nothing more calming than slipping on a warm and cozy robe after a nice hot shower.
5: I’m sure you’ve heard the benefits of weighted blankets. A perfect way to ensure a “drug-free” restful night’s sleep.
6: On those days when the body just needs to rest in bed, a recliner pillow is perfect.
13: Some great wireless speakers for playing music to relax to, escape in, or some feel-good singing (when no one else is around!)
14: Plants and nature are so healing, but some no-care, no-fuss plants are perfect (even with a black-thumb!)
15: A quality slow cooker, because easy, dump-and-go, delicious meals (that make the home smell a-mazing) are everything!
16: A perfect cozy, but simple for everyday wear, beanie! Keeping your head warm is the actual way to stay warm, plus you don’t have to worry about what your hair looks like 😉
19: Give them the gift of a lovely little spa treatment with a super high-tech foot spa machine!
21: Soaking the body in the tub can be just what the muscles need to relax (as well as the mind!) A bathtub tray/caddy is perfect for a long soothing soak.
22: If they’re ready for it and it’s been talked about, a pet (therapy, emotional support, or not) can make a world of difference. (This is my own *hint, hint* to family)
24: Speaking of subscriptions, a fun box every month can be a great little surprise to receive and look forward too. Try Love With Food (perfect for gluten-free foodies!)
So tell me:
+ What’s on your wishlist this year?
