We recently polled our community asking “what would you like as a gift?” Here are some creative ideas. Save this list for birthdays, house-warmings, the next holiday, or any time you may want to do something nice for a friend.


  • A homemade coupon book for errands / chores
  • Heated blanket
  • Gift certificates: massage, online vendor, restaurants
  • Netflix subscription
  • Meal prep
  • House cleaning service
  • EZ reach grabber
  • Subscription to their favorite magazine
  • Slippers
  • Heating padcard
  • Eye mask
  • Fuzzy socks
  • Gloves
  • Fleece throw
  • Potted Plant


Note: Some folks might have allergies so avoid heavily scented candles and certain food products. These items might also trigger migraines for some. Also consider seasonal gifts as they can be cost effective.

If you are in doubt it is always okay to ask.

Our biggest tip: remember that people living with chronic diseases can get lonely and feel isolated. Often times just picking up the phone and calling a friend is the greatest gift.
