Everyone has a friend or family member who is challenging to shop for. Maybe they are picky, or they already have everything and tell you "oh nothing" when you ask what they want.
Footcare gifts may not be on the top of their list, or even on their list at all, but giving the gift of happy and healthy feet is something they will thank you for all year long.
For Dry Feet...
There's a reason our Urea Care foot cream is the number one selling product available in our office. It is packed with urea, aloe vera, vitamins, and essential oils. Users enjoy the non-greasy texture and the fresh, light scent. It makes a great stocking stuffer for a family member who has diabetes, that aunt who constantly complains about dry heels, or anyone who appreciates a little extra pampering. Urea Care is available right in our office for your convenience.
A pumice stone can make a great addition to a powerful moisturizer. Pumice stones help to exfoliate dead skin from the feet. We should note that these stones are not recommended for folks with diabetes.
Is there someone on your list who values self-care? A pumice stone and Urea Care are perfect stocking stuffers.
For Aches and Pains...
Another product conveniently available in our office is BioFreeze. You may have seen this product at the drug store, but we carry a professional-grade version of the product as a health care provider—gift BioFreeze to the runner, golfer, or just generally active person in your life. The menthol-based gel quickly provides a cooling sensation to the affected area, relieving pain from strained muscles or ligaments.
Of course, everyone enjoys a foot massage. Modern innovation has created a way to enjoy that foot massage from virtually anywhere! Foot rollers come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. Freeze-able ones are also available to provide an icing effect with their massage.
Both of these products are perfect for anyone with feet! They can significantly help those who suffer from heel pain. Foot rolling encourages stretching of the plantar fascia, which can help ease some of the symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
If you have an athlete in your life, perhaps they would appreciate a package of laser pain therapy treatments. This treatment is available without consultation and can benefit any level of athlete, from the occasional 5k runner to bodybuilders and college players. Simply purchase the package in your recipient's name, and they can call us to schedule the treatments at a time that works for them!
For Foot Odor...
Does the smell of your partner's shoes make you cringe? Do you know someone who has tried sprays and powders and everything in between, but they can't seem to get rid of the potent smell?
A new high-tech advancement in the war on stinky shoes is SteriShoe+, a device equipped with UV light. The light helps to dry shoes faster and inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
Practical Gifts to Show How Much You Care
Let's face it, feet are probably the last thing on most people's minds (unless they have a foot issue, that is), and most people wouldn't think to put footcare products on their letters to Santa. The best gift you can give is showing that you care and providing a friend or family member, a boss, or a teacher with the products they need to practice more self-care.
Most of the products listed above are available right in our office! Give us a call or stop in (with a mask, of course) to purchase those last-minute gifts or if you have any questions! We are here for you anytime you need help. Give us a call at (989) 695-6788 or fill out our online contact form to connect with us today!
