The holidays are upon us and tis’ the season to start shopping for the ones you love!
If you are shopping for someone with a chronic illness like lupus, that can sometimes be challenging!
Take a look at some of our suggestions below of what to buy someone you love who has lupus. We hope that they will give you an idea of what kind of gift a lupus patient would appreciate:
GLOVES, SNUGGIES, HEATED BLANKETS:
The lupus overlap disease, Raynaud’s Syndrome, can leave a person’s hands, feet, ears, and nose bluer than Jack Frost! That is why heated blankets, Snuggies, and gloves are a must!
Essential oils or “aromatherapy” have been used for hundreds of years. Using essential oils may help give symptomatic relief with sleep, joint mobility, relaxation, and overall well-being.
SLEEP MASKS & PILLOWS:
Some people need a little assistance to get some restful zzzzzz’s.
When you have a chronic illness, you want your kitchen to be a place of convenience and efficiency!
There is a great variety of inspirational books available that everyone needs in their collection!
