It’s often difficult at the best of times to buy friends or family members a good Christmas present. Perhaps you’re one of those people who hate spending money on ‘useless’ gifts that will probably end up not used?
Well, this year at Cavendish Health Care, we have some products that are perfect for gift ideas with the added value of being practical. Below are five products we think will provide someone with a little more independence this Christmas.
Now if you’re looking for something handy and practical that will last a long time, then a Handi Grabber is a great option. It comes with a 6 month guarantee and would suit anyone who struggles to bend over to pick up dropped items.
There are many different variations on the standard – even one with a magnetic tip which will pick up dropped keys, coins, and other metallic objects.
These folding walking sticks can be used all the year round as they have a heavy-duty rubber ferrule on the end which provides great stability and support on most surfaces. It has a ‘T’ shaped handle for comfort and a wrist cord which is a useful way to make sure you don’t drop it.
A lightweight and folding design means that it’s small enough to keep in your bag or car glove compartment for when you need it the most. Hey, you could even use it for that walk after Christmas dinner.
There’s nothing quite like sitting in the warm with a nice pair of snuggly slippers. The Cosyfeet range is carefully made to produce footwear that give those with swollen feet or ankles a comfortable option.
They also use material which hides the internal seams which in turn will reduce rubbing, which can be very important when you have sensitive or vulnerable feet.
It’s not just slippers either, Cosyfeet stock a wide range of men and women’s shoes as well.
As an avid reader myself, I think that The Bookchair would make an inventive Christmas gift idea. It essentially takes all the book weight, keeping your hands free so would really help someone who has arthritis of the hands or wrist.
It will fit nicely on a flat surface, whether that’s a coffee table, bedside cabinet, or kitchen side. In fact, the larger version would be perfect to cradle that new Christmas Cookery Book.
A kettle full of boiling water can be a dangerous thing for people who have limited mobility in their hands or wrists. The Uccello Kettle is a wonderful invention as it has assistive technology to make pouring easy.
Everything about this kettle has been thought out from the tapered spout, ergonomically designed handle, and the easy-touch lid.
The 1.5 litre water capacity and anti-scale feature would make this a useful addition to any kitchen.
