Are you looking for a perfect gift for your friends and family suffering from foot problems such as plantar fasciitis, athlete’s foot, blisters, or heel spur? Here is a perfectly curated list of thoughtful foot relief items you can give your loved one this holiday season.
Categories of gifts for common foot problems
Foot support gift items
You can relieve foot aches by supporting the arch of the foot. People with conditions like plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, and Morton’s neuroma will benefit significantly from this category of gifts because it helps to take pressure off the heel and relax the ligaments and tendons of the arch of the foot.
Examples of foot support gift items include:
This specially crafted footwear provides excellent arch support and relieves footwear. It is also very comfortable to wear around the house, especially on hardwood or tiled floors.
The Vionic Arch Support slippers/flip flops are an excellent reserve for warmer months, while the boot slippers are very comfortable for cooler seasons.
● Foot chair orthotics and Foot chair slim orthotics
Foot chair orthotics are adjustable pads that provide arch, heel, and ball-of-the-foot support. They are recommended for sports, walking, prolonged standing, and running.
For women who love wearing heels and dress shoes, you can give them a foot chair with slim orthotics. It is also perfect for hard-to-fit shoes, as it provides excellent arch support regardless of the kind of shoe.
Foot massage gift items for tired feets
Acupuncture slippers are ideal gift items for people with mild to acute foot pain. Although they are not your regular fluffy slippers, the small buttons on the slippers hit vital nerve endings resulting in pain relief and better blood circulation. In addition, acupuncture slippers have many health benefits, including improved sleep cycle, restless leg syndrome, and fatigue.
● Foot massage oils
Foot massage oils are well known for their therapeutic effects. They are very effective in relieving foot pains and promoting sleep cycles. A recommended mix of lavender, peppermint, and marjoram provides a soothing and relaxing scent.
Also, remember that foot massage oils are perfect for fireplace Christmas stockings.
● Foot massage roller
Foot massage rollers are perfect gifts for people with plantar fasciitis. The plastic version is highly recommended compared to the wooden version because it is softer. In addition, it effectively relieves tension and pains in the foot and improves blood circulation.
Another plus option is that the foot massage roller is affordable, fun, and portable.
● Anti-fatigue mats
Research reveals that anti-fatigue mats reduce pressure on the feet by 30 percent. It is an excellent gift for people who stand on their feet for long hours, especially on hardwood floors. They are different variations of anti-fatigue mats; some have acupuncture buttons.
They are perfect fits for the kitchen and are very easy to clean.
● Cushion socks
Socks are never too far away from Christmas gifts. Rather than regular socks, how about cushion socks or compression socks? They are great for relieving foot pain and promoting foot health.
Cushion socks with extra padding are known for relieving pain around the heel and arch of the foot.
Foot pamper gift items
Foot-pampering gift items are the best Christmas gifts. Who does not love a refreshing foot pampering session?
● A day at a foot spa
A thoughtful gift for a loved one with foot problems is a relaxing day at a foot spa. They enjoy foot baths, massages, pedicures, and foot treatments. So sit back, soak your feet, set the mood with music, and enjoy.
