Holiday Season: Great Foot Care Gifts
posted: Jan. 02, 2017.
The holiday season is here, can you feel it? There is just enough time to buy those last-minute gifts for your loved ones and keep in mind that personal, thoughtful presents are the best ones to give. Many of us don’t like investing in lavish pampering products because they seem so self-indulgent so foot care gifts are a great idea!
Here are some great ideas that your loved ones will surely appreciate:
Specialty socks are specialized socks that provide superior comfort for hurting feet. Though they may be a bit pricey on the side, the person who will be receiving this will definitely be happy! They don’t make feet swampy after a vigorous activity and they contain added padding in all the right spots to prevent pain, blisters, moisture and pressure ulcers.
Warm, Fuzzy Socks
Warm, fuzzy socks are gifts that anyone would definitely enjoy. A pair of plush socks equates to pure comfort around the house – especially during the winter! Socks protect our feet, and when used along with a good moisturizer, they are a great way to calm dryness during the colder months.
For the special outdoorsman in your life, heated insoles are the perfect present. Nobody likes having cold feet while walking the dog, hiking, hunting, or shovelling. These heated insoles let you turn up the heat by using a remote control and rechargeable batteries. There’s even a latest version that can be charged via USB and can run up to five hours continuously. A spare battery can also be inserted for warmth that will last all-day long. This should be used with caution if you have diabetes or decreased sensation on your feet to avoid accidental burns.
Foot Moisturizer Cream
Foot cream is ideal for stimulation circulation as well as softening corns, calluses and rough heels. If you have a loved one that works doubly hard, giving them moisturizing cream will definitely be such a treat.
A foot massager makes for an excellent stocking stuffer. It is not something you’d think of buying for yourself but if you have it, you will be sure to use it constantly. Using it is simple – you just need to roll it under your feet, or over any other sore, tired body part. You are bound to feel a soothing stimulation. It is prized for its portability and its impact on plantar fasciitis pain. You can look for one that comes as a hot/cold therapy set. As always, this should be used with caution if you have a history of diabetes or decreased sensation on your feet.
After a long and tiring day, a foot soak is a relaxing treat and also a great way to get your feet prepped for bedtime. Tea tree oil soak promises to deodorize, soften calluses, and leave feet feeling new again.
