Foot Health Gift Ideas for Everyone on Your List

Even in this year – which has been, admittedly, like none other – the holidays will be a time for friends and family members to enjoy an opportunity to express their affection for one another through the exchange of gifts. Whether you do your shopping in person or online, you might want to consider gifts that promote good health this year. You might shop for special face masks or beautifully scented hand sanitizer. Have you thought about gifts to help those you care about enjoy good foot and ankle health in the year to come? Here are five suggestions from Cook County foot doctor Dr. Stavros O. Alexopoulos to help you complete your list:

  1. Socks – Everyone loves a fuzzy pair of winter socks. These can be more than pleasurable for those who live with diabetes or circulatory ailments. Such illnesses can leave feet feeling chronically chilled and warm. Woolen socks can provide real comfort in the cold months.
  2. Slippers – A pair of slippers with non-skid soles can prevent an at-home fall resulting in a foot or ankle injury. How about a comfy pair for everyone on your list? For maximum safety, choose moccasin-style options with backs over slides.
  3. Boots – Winter boots should emphasize function over fashion. Choose well-insulated styles with laces for customized fit and lug soles for traction on winter’s snow and ice.
  4. Lotion – The air has less humidity in the winter, and dry skin is common. A bottle of scented lotion will offer luxurious relief.
  5. Massage – A relaxing foot rub is a real treat! Give someone you care about a gift certificate for a professional visit or a coupon for some one-on-one time at home.
