Holiday Gifts That Give Comfort and Joy to Feet

holiday gifts

Giving thoughtful gifts, presented with heart and soul, is a wonderful part of the holiday season. This year, consider offering your loved ones gifts that pamper their feet. In the hustle and bustle of life, people can overlook their feet all year long. You have an opportunity to remind them of the importance of good foot health with thoughtful holiday gifts like these:

  • A pedicure kit contains everything they need for a professional-style at-home pedicure. You can buy one pre-made or fill a pretty basket or reusable bag yourself. If a whole kit sounds like too much, you might purchase a few items like a quality foot file or a tube of thick moisturizing cream.
  • A gift certificate to a licensed nail salon is sure to encourage your loved one to take time out for foot pampering. Research the salon first to ensure you’re sending them to a clean, professional facility.
  • Make a foot care travel kit. Fill a small zippered bag with travel essentials such as nail clippers, emery boards, moisturizer, bandages, and sunscreen. If your loved one has a specific foot problem, such as corns on the tops of their toes, toss in some corn pads.
  • Socks are great holiday gifts, and who doesn’t love a new pair or four every year? Socks are fun and useful, and your loved one will appreciate your picking out just the correct pairs.
  • Supportive slippers are an excellent choice for older adults who need extra help with stability or anyone who works on their feet all day. Look for brands that carry the APMA seal of approval.
  • An electric foot massager soothes tired feet and promotes excellent circulation.
