Our Top Ten Gifts For A More Inclusive Christmas
There are a lot of Christmas gift guides popping up at the moment, but for the most part, they're not focused on those of us with chronic health conditions, physical impairments, or invisible illnesses.
That's alright though; there are plenty of excellent companies making beautiful products for this sizable but often overlooked demographic. In this blog post, we've listed our top ten gift ideas for you and your loved ones this Christmas.
Babe with a mobility aid?
We had to post about these guys first, as we keep seeing them all over the place (most recently, during one of our own photoshoots). Neo-Walk are a company we really admire - they prioritise the aesthetic value of walking sticks, turning them into a desirable fashion accessory for those who need them. They have a range of amazing sticks, from coloured, translucent and glittery to ones that actually light up! Check out the Tickled Pink Punch stick for a classic.
Perfect for power-chairs
Accessorise in style
Face mask fashion
Front-fastening and fabulous
The K-utest earrings
Our Rosie the Riveter inspired t-shirt (also sold on our sister site, K, Babe) is a best-seller. Featuring a badass woman with a prosthetic arm, it's a statement that diversity and representation are important. Disabled women can be sexy and powerful, so it's about time we see them being depicted in just that way.
If you're shopping for someone with a long-term health condition, this luxury spa bath pillow is a thoughtful idea for much-needed relaxation time in the tub. Its two-panel design supports your upper back and it has seven suction cups, which mean the pillow won't slip. It's also odour, mould and mildew resistant. Pick one up today from Valmars.
Pockets n prints
Last but not least, we couldn't compile a gift guide without featuring our best-selling kintsugi-print skirt. This a-line number has an elasticated waistband, concealed side Velcro opening and two deep front pockets, which can hold everything from your phone and housekeys to medical devices such as blood sugar monitoring kits and Epi-pens.
Happy shopping, lovely readers. And whatever you're doing this Christmas, stay safe.
