The holiday season of giving is almost here. As friends and family gather together to exchange gifts, it’s another chance to show how much we care about each other. While gifts should always come from the heart, items that improve the quality of life usually are more appreciated. If you find yourself shopping for someone who uses a hearing aid device, there are many more options than you might think. Check out these fantastic hearing aid gift ideas for hearing aid device accessories and tools.
Hearing Aid Gift Ideas: Holiday Gift Guide for Hearing Loss
While it may seem like a boring gift, in reality, cleaning kits get old and wear out eventually. The newest cleaning kits may have advanced in available features and provide a much-appreciated upgrade.
Another everyday sounding gift, earwax guards are very helpful in prolonging the life of a hearing aid device as earwax can buildup and interfere with the device’s function.
A hearing aid can get sweaty and dirty like anything else a person wears and cleaning them also involves moisture. A dehumidifier helps shorten the time it takes to dry out the softer parts of the device, preventing the problems associated with humidity like bacterial growth and ear infections.
Ultraviolet Light Box
One very popular item this year for hearing aid users is a UV light sterilizer. Regular use of hearing aids and earbuds can lead to bacterial infections; ultraviolet light can eliminate bacteria and mold, reducing the chances of potential issues.
While the holidays only come once a year, using hearing aids is a year-round activity. As devices wear out from daily use, a pack of extra parts is a gift that will keep giving throughout the entire year.
Hearing Aid Batteries
One of the most vital components of hearing aid devices are the batteries. Without power, a hearing aid device can become useless; extra batteries will ensure your loved ones are never without the power to join in the festivities.
Another popular upgrade is to go from regular disposable batteries to rechargeables. Over time, the cost of batteries can lead to an expense that rechargeable batteries can offset the price very quickly. However, just because they may already have one, these devices can wear out over time so, a spare would probably be appreciated.
