Forever one to create original content, I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon and create a gift guide. Not any old gift guide but one containing some idea for the chronically awesome chronically sick person in your life.
Before I dive straight into the list I really must stress that us ill folk have interests outside of, you know, being ill. So if you know them well enough it’s probably best to go down that route and choose a more personal present. This is just my top five safe bets I know I personally, as well as many other illness warriors would be happy to receive.
Speaking for myself. I’m 90% sure I own more PJs rather than actual clothes. At least I definitely feel like I wear them more often. A nice pair of pajamas is a lovely treat and not something people often think of buying for themselves. A pretty safe bet and a present that you can splurge on or still get on a budget.
Hot Water Bottle / Warmer
As the weather gets colder and being someone who suffers with random aches and pains, there’s nothing I love more than being tucked up cuddling a hot water bottle or warmer. Whether you prefer a traditional bottle you fill with hot water from the kettle, or a microwaveable teddy, there’s a wide variety of gift sets out in the shops at the moment. I’d recommend the noozie, a rechargeable heat pack that stays warmer for longer than a hot water bottle, is easy and quick to use.
A gift card
This may not sound that interesting. However I love nothing more than internet shopping. It’s even better when somebody else is paying for it. Not only have you given someone the potential to buy exactly what they want for Christmas. You’ve also bought the gift of something to keep me entertained for a couple of hours.
Pillows / Cushions / Fairy Lights
I spend a lot of time in my bed, therefore it being comfy and cozy is really important to me. Who doesn’t love cute cushions and twinkling lights?
Socks / Hats / Scarfs / Gloves
Us sick folk get cold. There’s tons of cute gift sets containing these items around. I can never have too many pairs of socks and you can guarantee that if I have to step outside in the less than warm months, I’m gonna be wrapped up in enough scarfs and cozy material, that I could quite easily be mistaken for a ski resort guest.
Let me know what you’ve asked for this Christmas
