Foot Care Gifts for the Holidays

Our family and friends could all benefit from thoughtful foot gifts this holiday season. If you’re unsure of where to begin, the doctors at  New England Podiatry Associates are here to help. Whether you’re looking for a gift to help with daily foot checks or extra comfy socks, start here with our recommendations. Happy Holidays from our family to yours!

Foot moisturizer

The winter season is beautiful, but it can also bring dry skin. Help your loved ones prevent dry skin and cracked heels by gifting them with a podiatrist-recommended moisturizer. For best results, be sure to stress the importance of not putting lotion between their toes. Unfortunately, this area is the optimal environment for fungus to grow.

Diabetic socks

There’s a chance that someone in your life is managing their diabetes. One way to support them during the holiday season is to provide them with a special pair of socks. Diabetic socks offer more comfort and cushion. They also do not have an elastic cuff, which can be uncomfortable and create circulation issues.

Nail clipper set

A new, clean set of nail clippers and a file can be a great way to start the new year. Daily foot checks should always include clean tools. If you notice that a loved one needs to upgrade their foot care kit, consider shopping on their behalf. Always remind them that they should not share hygiene items, including nail clippers, nail files, tweezers, etc.

Foot care should be every day, and we think each of these gifts can contribute to healthy feet for your friends and family. Here’s another gift: recommending that a loved one visits a podiatrist.
