The holiday season is right around the corner, facing us once again with the annual challenge to buy our loved ones gifts they’ll both use and enjoy.
But what about our friends and family who suffer from foot afflictions? Foot-pain-relieving presents might not seem like an obvious choice, but at second glance, comfort and relaxation might be the greatest gift out there. Here are a couple ways we can give it:
1. For the workaholic: Shiatsu foot massager
We all have those loved ones who just won’t take breaks — they’re always working hard and running around. Such constantly active lifestyles often cause tension and soreness in the feet, for which a Shiatsu foot massager is the perfect solution.
The massager is designed to stimulate acupressure points in the feet through pressure and heat, providing its users unbelievable relief from the stress of day-to-day life.
2. For the foot-stresser: compression socks
This gift works wonders for anyone suffering from poor circulation or swelling in their feet — diabetics, pregnant women, frequent travelers edema sufferers and people with varicose veins are commonly afflicted.
Compression socks put pressure on the leg muscles, reducing swelling, improving circulation and relieving their users of serious foot tension.
3. For the bunion sufferer: Bunion Booties
Bunions often cause chafing and irritation which, if left untreated, can result in blisters, swelling, tenderness and bursitis. Those afflicted with bunions have few options, including surgery and/or bunion correctors.
The most effective and least intrusive bunion corrector out there is the Bunion Bootie. It helps guide the big toe back into its rightful position, provides relief from chafing and fits easily in just about any shoe. On top of all that, its 0.4-mm material is odor-and-bacteria-resistant, making the bootie even less noticeable and more user-friendly.
A plus: Bunion Bootie is currently holding a Black Friday promotion pricing, so get in there before the discounts end!
4. For the constantly cold: wool socks
Your friends and family who can’t seem to shake their shivers might not know their typical cotton socks are actually making them colder. Cotton absorbs and retains moisture, making it lose its insulation value. It’s a recipe for cold feet.
So you should go with wool: it’s thicker than cotton and won’t lose its insulating properties when wet — the perfect stocking stuffer for the wintery holiday season.
