Unique Gift Ideas For Both Mother's Day and Father's Day That Help With Chronic Pain

Mother’s and Father’s Day are approaching, and I wanted to curate a list for you to help you figure out what to buy your parents this year!  Many of our parents are aging and dealing with more chronic health conditions. Instead of focusing on flowers or chocolates, why not consider buying something that may be useful in helping reduce their aches and pains!

Also, these recommendations are not exclusive to your parents! You might just want to get something for yourself as well!

Phymat heating pad:  This is a full body size heating mat that I use on my massage table.  It utilizes infrared heat, which penetrates the body much deeper than the typical heating pad.  What I love about this mat is that it helps boost circulation, reduce aches and pains (especially the kind made better with warmth), and promotes relaxation. The price on this particular model is VERY economical when compared to other well known brands.

Life Pro Waver Vibration Plate:  This is a must have for anyone with aches and pains in the feet and legs.  It is also helpful for those with mobility issues due to poor circulation. The vibration plate helps boost blood circulation and is helpful for those who lead more sedentary lifestyles.  It is helpful for symptoms associated with edema, poor circulation (cold feet, spider veins, varicose veins, discolored feet due to poor circulation, etc), and pain.  I have a blog article about how my LifePro Waver Vibration Plate helped eliminate my chronic foot pain.  Just click here to read all about it.

LifePro Oculux Eye Massager: This is for the person who has eye pain/strain or headaches that typically involve the eyes.  It produces a gentle warmth, massage, and acupressure to help rejuvenate the eyes and reduce headaches.

LifePro Legra Hand Massager: This is for the parent with hand pain!  Arthritis, carpal tunnel, numbness and tingling in the hands… It helps with all of it! It warms the hands, uses compression massage, and also targets acupressure points to help relieve pain.

Note: if a person’s pain is made worse with heat, try it without the heat option.

Ora’s Amazing Herbal Hemp Soothe Salve:  I LOOOOOVE this product.  It is my go-to for all things pain and nerve.  I apply it to my hands after a long day of massage. I use it on the back of my legs for restless legs at night.  If I’m having trouble sleeping I will apply some on my belly button to help me relax. If you had a massage with me, I probably used this on you! The herbal formula in this salve is probably one of the best I have come across. It nourishes the skin and smells AMAZING! Use my discount code HAPPYCAT to save 10% off your purchase!

Amope Rechargeable Foot File:  I bought my mom one of these for Mother’s Day years ago, and she still has it and LOVES it.  My dad even bought one for himself.  What makes this such a great tool for mom and dad is that they don’t just use it on their feet.  Many times people get calluses on their elbows, toes, and fingers. This file helps get it gone. To go with the Amope Rechargeable Foot File, I highly recommend Ora's Amazing Herbal's Footcare Butter. The footcare butter has a light lavender and peppermint scent. It leaves the feet, hands, elbows, and other body parts soft and deeply moisturized.

Massage gift certificate: Of course I wouldn’t make this list without mentioning that you can also buy a gift certificate for a 60 or 90 minute massage!  Even better, a series of massages to help get real relief from the chronic aches and pains. You can use the code MOTHERSDAY24 when booking your massage to get $10 off for the entire month of May.

Note about LifePro products:  there are many other similar products made by other companies, but I recommend LifePro specifically because I have had personal experience with their customer service team, and they are top notch. They really value the customer experience and are quick to make something right.
