It’s officially the most wonderful time of the year. But for loved ones with limited mobility or who are recovering from injuries, it may not feel that way.
In order to help make the holidays special for every-abled friend and family member, we’ve put together a gift guide just for them.
For the New Mama: Slick Chicks Briefs
While having a new baby is the best gift we can think of, those first few weeks (or months) postpartum are anything but easy. With side fasteners and soft stretch fabric, Slick Chicks Briefs are perfect for new mamas–and anyone who may need an easier way to put on their undies. Pro tip: these briefs are also perfect for pregnant bellies!
For Post-Dental/Facial Surgery: Ice Rollers
Whether they’ve just had their wisdom teeth out or had jaw surgery, any loved one who may be feeling swollen this holiday season will love an ice roller. We particularly love aluminum rollers that stay extra cold for longer, like Skinny Confidential’s Hot Mess Ice Roller.
For Those with a Port or Drains: The Celine ¾ Sleeve Jacket
Whether it’s a mother who has just undergone a double mastectomy or a friend who has a round-the-clock port, our Celine Jacket is designed to make dressing easier for patients and caregivers–and to help them feel comfortable and chic all day long.
For Those with Limited Arm Mobility: A Sippable Tumbler
Staying hydrated is important for everyone–especially those recovering from surgery or illness. A water bottle or tumbler and keeps liquids cold and that also has a straw makes it easy for those who may have trouble holding a cup to stay hydrated. We love S’well’s fun colors and thoughtful designs, like the Pink Topaz Tumbler with Straw: not only does it have a straw and mood-lifting hue, the stone-like texture provides added grip for less spilling.
For the Person Who Needs a Little Extra Support: A Cane
This basic accessory provides millions of people dealing with pain, injury, weakness or balance trouble–but that doesn’t mean it can’t also be a fashion accessory! Opt for a fun version like lucite for your on-trend aunt, or a luxe leather handle for a dapper grandfather. Just make sure you choose one with the correct grip and base depending on the recipient’s needs. Click here for cane Ideas
For Post-Knee Surgery: The Phil Shorts
Perfect for those who are recovering from knee surgery, going to PT, or anyone confined to a wheelchair or bed, the Phil Shorts are lightweight, comfortable and breathable–making life easier for both patients and their caregivers.
For Everyone On Your List: A Cozy Blanket
From those recovering from a surgery to those who are bedridden, from expecting mamas to just about everyone else, a blanket is the perfect one-size-fits-all gift. From weighted blankets to cashmere throws, we can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t be thrilled to find this cozy gift under the tree.
For the Person Getting Back on their Feet: Reboundwear Non-Skid Ankles Socks with Grippers
Reboundwear's best selling non-skid socks are perfect for those just getting back on their feet post injury or surgery. They’re also the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone on your list: they can be worn instead of slippers at home, or even to yoga or other workouts.
For The Beauty Queen or Anyone Who Just Had Stitches: Silicone Gel + Mineral Sunscreen
From getting a mole removed to undergoing surgery, so many loved ones may have recently had stitches. Silicone gel will help lessen long-term scarring, while sunscreen is crucial during the healing process. RCP Products have an array of products for skin and scar care.
