As the anticipation for Christmas and the holiday grows, the search for the perfect gift reaches a fever pitch. If you’re shopping for someone with a hearing impairment, the selection of possible gifts has ballooned over the last few years, giving more options for gifts. Here are some of the best and most popular hearing loss gift ideas for people with hearing impairments.
Hearing Loss Gift Ideas for the Hearing Impaired
Storage and Cleaning Kits
Daily use takes a heavy toll on any device, especially hearing aids. Helping loved ones take care of their devices is a gift that keeps giving. Cleaning kits, storage cases, and dehumidifiers are all excellent choices as gifts for loved ones who are hearing impaired.
Many people looking for hearing-impaired-related gifts are surprised when batteries are mentioned. The truth is, batteries are always welcome; as most hearing aid users know, you can never have too many. The average life span of the typical hearing aid battery is only 1 to 3 weeks (depending on the batteries required.) Since batteries can be stored for long periods, stocking up is not an issue.
Many newer hearing aids have Bluetooth wireless capabilities. This technology can truly transform hearing aid devices into truly life-changing equipment. You can change a loved one’s interaction with almost any Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as televisions, computers, cell phones, doorbells, and much more.
Alert Devices and Accessories
Not all helpful gadgets require a wireless connection. Devices like sound-activated lamps and bed shakers have been around for years and have improved the lives of millions of people. While they might not be as exciting as the most advanced technology, alert devices and home accessories for the hearing impaired, have stood the test of time and have a proven track record of success.
We hope the suggestions will make your Christmas shopping more manageable, allowing you to spend more time with friends and family this holiday season.
