Hi everyone!!! It is December 1st, 2015 the 1st day of Blogmas. Are y’all as excited as I am?! Although, December or as I like to call it Doecember (I’ll make a more in-depth personal post about that later) for me is a really emotional month. This year I am going to do my best to look at the month positively.
So, on the first day of Blogmas 2015 I thought I’d talk about Christmas gift ideas for someone with a disability. Now, being disabled we can virtually get anything it’s not a must to get any of these things. I’m just sharing some ideas. When shopping for someone with a disability a lot of things have to be considered. Like, the kind of disability they have, and any limitations, age, likes and dislikes naming a few. Ultimately, though the best Christmas gifts for a disabled person is something they can use. Not just once or twice but long term use.
Here’s a list of some things:
- Eating and drinking aids
- Kitchen aids (e. one touch can openers)
- Easy grip items (spoons, forks, cups, grooming tools, etc.)
- Clothing and personal items
- Long handle shoehorns
- Reaching tools
- Bathroom aids
- Seat lifters, or swivel seat cushions
- Driving aids
- Electronics (cell phones, computers, tablets, hearing and speaking aids)
Kids will also like:
- Adaptable toys (plush bears, blocks, puzzles…)
So, hopefully with a few of these ideas you can find something to get yourself or a loved one for the holidays.
Sidenote: December 1st is also known as World Aids Day. Millions of people live with this virus on a daily basis, but millions have died as well. Educate yourself and others…KNOW YOUR STATUS! Also it is Giving Tuesday, a day created in 2012 to commemorate the act of kindness, giving and supporting charities and causes all over the world. So, why not give today? I did! See, ya’ll tomorrow!
