Are you having trouble finding just the right gift for someone on your list this holiday season? Maybe friends or family have asked you for suggestions on what you might want this year but you can’t think of anything off the top of your head. Well – have we got a resource for you! It’s the annual Multiple Sclerosis Holiday Gift Guide. Don’t let the name fool you. Sure it has GREAT suggestions for those of us with MS and what could be really helpful for us (maybe send the link for this guide or a specific suggestion to those who buy for you) but there are a lot of great ideas for most anyone on your list. Good gift ideas know no health boundary!
Aside from the usual ideas like jewelry or gift cards, this guide offers ideas like cooling gear, adaptive technology that could mean more freedom, and meal services like Blue Apron that deliver directly to your door for easy-to-prepare, nutritious meals without the hassle of grocery shopping when the fatigue kicks in. There are really fun ideas too, like Wine-of-of-the-Month Club – and one of the perennial favorites: Squatty Potty!
In addition to the ideas of what to give, there is a “what not to give” section that can help those that don’t have MS understand the limitations that should be respected with gifts. There’s even a gift from the author of the guide: a song about MS titled “Wash Your Mouth Out With Hope.”
This isn’t your usual Holiday Gift Guide – it really takes into consideration the MS’er’s needs. That’s because the author has MS herself. Nothing like walking in those shoes yourself.
At the end of the guide, there are links for MS charities where people can donate. Now that’s sure to “fit” everyone! No worries of that being returned!
All of the gift suggestions are hyperlinked so you just need to click and buy. It’s incredibly easy. Hope this helps – and Happy Holidays.
Have you done all your holiday shopping?
Kathy is a wife to TJ who is a golf pro, a mom to 2 teenage daughters (and all the fun that comes with that), a friend, a writer, a marketer, a reader, a crab eater, a beer and wine drinker (occasionally a Jameson drinker), a singer/songwriter, an activist and advocate and oh yeah, I have MS. I’m a patient who lost her patience. I’ve dealt with the symptoms, the flares, the indignities of life with MS – and I can still find a lot to laugh about. Attitude is everything, and my attitude is to talk to MS as it deserves: I give it the finger and say “FUMS” everyday! And I’m here to encourage everyone with MS to do the same thing. Cop an attitude. It’s empowering.
