Hopefully, the list of gifts below will bring back holiday, bring back the coziness, relief and smiles to those you loved.

Gifts for People with Arthritis


HurryCane - The all terrain cane

I had a co-woker in Austin, Texas who has severe arthritis. He got arthritis from some immunization shot since early age. Even now I remember how painful it was for him during winter, and how difficult and painful it was for him to just bend down, or twist a bottle cap.

Most people with arthritis have some sort of physical pains and even physical limitations; like my friend, his fingers were always stiff, and due to the severe pain on his leg, he couldn’t even easily sit or bend down. For people with arthritis, a gift or a bundle of gifts that would help with getting around more easily, doing chores around the house more easily or would offer comfort and relaxation will be ideal.

Gifts for People with Frequent Headaches and Migraines


Headache

I love writing about gifts and gift ideas that help us solve the problems we have or at least make them become more tolerable. That’s why the first couple of posts I wrote on Gift ASAP were all about pain relieving gifts — the kind of pains that my friends and relatives and probably yours, too, have been experiencing. This time, I’m turning to a problem that I’ve had — migraine headaches. The headaches can come out of the blue or can be triggered by anything from strong smell (of perfume or smoke), bright sun light, heat, noise, caffeine or stress and deadlines.

When the headache strikes, I don’t want to do anything, just want to lay down, close my eyes and rest. If it strikes at work, I turn off the light, take a cup of warm tea, and close my eyes for several minutes from time to time — small things that help get me through the day. Below are some products and gift ideas that people with frequent headaches will appreciate.

Gifts for People with Wrist Pain


Wrist pain

Together with back pain, using computer, computer mouse or exercising (your wrist such as playing tennis or golf) too much and repeatedly day by day without proper support and resting will gradually stiffen the muscle around your wrist and cause wrist pains. The pain will likely go away naturally if you stop doing these same repetitive activities everyday; however, more often people just cannot afford to have that kind of time off for the wrist to heal.

Wrist pain can seriously affects your work and your daily activities as besides the irritating pain, you may also lose the power of your grip. Your hand and fingers become less flexible, making some simple activities like holding things, turning door or car keys, typing, writing etc. suddenly become harder and painful.

Foot Pain Causes and Relief


Foot pain causes

Foot pain causes

I didn’t really care much about foot pain until recently when my mom was complaining incessantly about her foot pain, especially how painful it was for her to stand first thing in the morning. It turned out my mom was not alone; many of her friends have had foot pain, and even some of my friends, who are in their 20s and 30s, also have foot pain.

Pain is like a signal your body is trying to tell you there’s something (wrong) going on, in this case with your foot, and unless you do something about it, the pain is only to get worse with your daily life and activities. The pain could be due to inflammation or misalignment of one or more of the different structures in your foot including bone, joint and ligament or tendon.
