7 Great Holiday Gift Ideas For Diabetics

Hope you like my new header. It was meant to put in a holiday mood, if you are not there yet and to lead you into this topic. The weekend is here and some of you may be heading out to take advantage of some of the great deals for those special people in your life. If diabetics are among those on your shopping list, you may be scratching your head wondering what to get them. Well, here are some meaningful ideas to choose from:

Snack Gift Basket – To keep your diabetic from going hungry, give him/her a snack basket of healthy treats. This healthy gift box shown below contains a colorful assortment of dried fruit such as pineapple, apple rings, kiwi, and more. It also has heart-healthy pistachios, and almonds.

Air fryer – In order to minimize the risk of high cholesterol which can lead to heart disease, diabetics need to follow a low-fat diet. To help her in this regard, why not give her an air fryer? She can grill, bake and roast food and it will come out crunchy, nicely browned and flavorful.

Diabetes Supply Carrying Bag – A person who is on insulin or other diabetic meds should always be prepared. To ensure that she has everything at her fingertips, give her this attractive Insulin Cooler Diabetic Medicine Travel Bag this Christmas. Great for short trips and outings, this bag will keep her Epi pen, meds, eye drops and all her other important supplies safe and sanitary.

Medical bracelet – The American Diabetes Association recommends that all people suffering from diabetes should wear a medical alert bracelet. In the event of an emergency, it will alert those nearby that you need urgent medical attention because of your condition. The elegant bracelet shown below is made of Titanium steel, waterproof, is rust resistant and comes with free engraving.

Foot inspection mirror – I cannot stress the importance of this foot inspection mirror enough. Christmas or not, I think every diabetic should have one. Because diabetics may lose sensation in their feet, they need to inspect their feet daily to ensure there are no sores or wounds that need attention. This mirror has a long, collapsible handle, swivel neck and it’s illuminated. You can’t go wrong with this one.

Tea themed gift – Is your diabetic friend or relative a tea lover? Give her a gift box of her favorite teas like the one below.

Exercise dumbells – Last but not least, help your diabetic achieve her goal to exercise more in the coming year. Give her a pair of dumbells like the ones below (in her favorite color) . Weight training is one of the best exercises to help boost insulin sensitivity in diabetics. The ones shown below are 5lb. but you can choose a weight that is more suitable for her fitness level.
