Great Gifts for Adults with a Chronic Illness

Posted Sep 14 2008 10:15am

Yesterday I posted on gifts for children with a peanut allergy. Today I am introducing you to my gift guide for adults with a chronic illness. I've actually tried many of these out myself!

OmOm Nectar Douceur organic body wash, made with aloe vera and raw shea butter, smells and works like a dream. Also in Valencia orange and Provence lavender.

Icy Bag insulated and chilled accessory bag is a stylish and discreet way to take your heat-sensitive medications and other health items with you wherever you go.

Xocai all-natural chocolate treats are made from unheated chocolate, which retains 100% of its antioxidant and nutritional value. It delivers the full antioxidant capacity of dark chocolate without the fat, wax, milk, fillers, preservatives and high sugar content normally associated with almost all store-bought chocolate.

The Comfort-U Body Pillow is sooooo comfortable.

I've posted before about how much knitting has helped me. I love these knitting kits by Kpixie.

This Conair Sound Therapy device really soothes me.

Kindle is great for all those doctor waiting rooms. It's easy to adjust the font size and and light as a feather in your bag. Don't forget a cover!

Lb1511_br Speaking of bags, I like these chic Casauri laptop cases, totes, and overnight bags.

This is a great light for a hospital stay or for sleepless nights.

Never underestimate the power of a furry friend! I love bringing my cat with me in this Sleepypod mobile pet bed.

This Apple iPod touch is great. I can't stress enough the power of the tunes! Music and instant TV shows are essential for long nights, so it's a good idea to add iTunes credits.

Along those lines, there's also Tivo. I will admit that during my illness i developed a slight (maybe not so slight) soap opera addiction... and knew everything going on on pretty much any show!

Audio books like Recorded Books are fabulous. You would shocked how engaging a book on tape (or mp3) can be -- especially if the person's medications mess with their vision.

These weekly planners by Sarah Pinto are cute -- and Sarah donates a portion of proceeds to the Pediatric Cardiology Center at California Pacific Medical Center.
