Valentine’s Day – 14th February
Finding the perfect gift for someone you love can often be overwhelming, but when they are living with a medical condition this can make the task even more challenging. We’ve put together a helpful guide for Valentine’s Day gifts that show how much you love and care, while considering the medical condition they are living with.
Living with a medical condition is often both physically and mentally challenging. Subscription gifts are a great option that will not only make their Valentine’s Day special but also cheer them up throughout the year. The options for subscription gifts are endless, from letterbox flowers to their favourite magazines, you’re sure to find an option that your loved one will enjoy again and again.
Sweet treats for people with diabetes
Chocolates are a classic gift option to give for Valentine’s Day and living with a medical condition such as diabetes shouldn’t mean having to miss out on the sweet stuff. More and more options are becoming available that are friendly for people with diabetes. Discover sweet treats from cakes to chocolates that are still delicious without having to compromise on your loved one’s health.
There are definitely times when living with a medical condition can affect your mental health and leave you feeling low. Therefore a gift which helps to focus on more positive and happier thoughts is a great option for a loved one who you think is suffering. The Happiness Planner is a journal that can help someone master their mind and feel more inspired and happier within themselves. The planners can be used all year long, so this really is a gift that will keep on giving.
Gifts to help them sleep
A wide variety of medical conditions can often have a negative impact on the quality of sleep a person has. A poor night sleep then goes on to have even more of a negative impact on a person’s health and mood. A good night sleep is often seen as a gift in itself and there are a number of products you can give to help achieve this. From pillow spray to relaxing bath salts, a good night’s sleep may be the best Valentine’s Day gift they’ve had.
It is well known that regular exercise is very beneficial to maintaining good health, but for people living with medical conditions it can be difficult to participate, especially in more strenuous exercise activities. Yoga is a great form of exercise as it is perfect for beginners and can be tailored to ability level. Yoga can also be beneficial for health as it helps to build strength, balance and flexibility. It can also improve heart health and even help ease some physical conditions, such as back pain. Alongside this, it is a great way to practice mindfulness, helping manage stress and anxiety levels. A yoga mat is therefore a great gift for a loved one. Personalised options are also available if you want to give a personal touch to your present.
