Holiday Hearing Gift Guide

What to Buy? Holiday Hearing Gift Guide

Buying gifts for others during the holidays can be quite the challenging task. The holidays are a stressful time, even though it shouldn’t be, but we don’t live in a perfect world, so it is. During the holiday season it’s not uncommon for people to obsess over finding the “perfect gift,” and this can take a lot of time and energy. Buying gifts for your friends and family can be tricky, and this task can become even more challenging if they happen to have a hearing impairment.

If you have someone on your list that has difficulty hearing, find the perfect gift for them by checking out this handy holiday hearing gift guide.

• Purchasing your loved one a hearing aid dryer is a thoughtful gift that will help keep their hearing device in tip-top shape for years to come. While this gift may sound simple to some people having one of these available is very handy.
• If you know someone who loves to wear headbands, or has a young child, hearing aid headbands are a cute and practical way to keep cochlear implants and hearing aids in place.
• Waking up to an alarm clock can be difficult when you are hearing impaired, so purchase your loved one a vibrating alarm clock. Preferably one with a bed shaker and an extra loud alarm!
• Books are always a great gift, so give the gift of knowledge and understanding this holiday season. Suitable for both young and old alike, books can help give one a better understanding of hearing loss.
• Another thoughtful, yet handy gift is a hearing aid maintenance kit. One of these can act as a great stocking stuffer and has all the accessories needed to keep one’s hearing aids maintained.
• Hearing aid accessories are available for children to add some fun and flair to their device. There are stickers, Skinit’s, and other decorations available for every personality type.
• Earplugs are a great way to help prevent further hearing loss from occurring, especially if your loved one is an avid concert goer. High-fidelity earplugs are now available to provide a safe listening experience.
• Nowadays, it’s becoming more common for mainstream toys (i.e., Build a Bear) to come with plastic hearing aid accessories as a way of celebrating the differences we all have!
• Hearing loss and tinnitus can go hand in hand, and this potentially debilitating condition can make it hard for one to fall asleep. Luckily there are pillows available that can play tinnitus-relieving sounds to help soothe the ringing.
• A personal listening amplifier is a handy device to have around, especially when out at a restaurant or watching television. These assistive listening devices are available for individual use or as a complete at-home system.
