Shopping Ideas for People with Diabetes
People with diabetes are more than their diabetes. They are first and foremost people, each with talents and
interests unique to them. But if you are looking to give someone with diabetes the gift of encouragement and
good health, here are some traditional and not-so-traditional ideas to help get you started.
Gift Certificate to a Seamstress
Does your loved one wear an insulin pump? A gift certificate to a local seamstress could create special
pockets for that pump, making your loved one both healthy and fashionable.
While keeping track of foods and blood sugars is very important, it's also important to remain emotionally
healthy. A journal or diary for your loved one will give them a space to write their feelings about diabetes
and keep them from feeling bottled up.
Gift Certificate to Anywhere!
Treat him/her to the latest fashions from their favorite clothing store. It’s not only a great gift but a great way
to help them stay warm and protected in the elements.
Give the Gift of Charity
If your loved one is moved by causes, make a donation to their favorite one, in their name!
What busy parent wouldn’t love a little help via a personal chef, housekeeping services, even a grocery
delivery service. An extra hand in these areas is great stress relievers.
You can find not only great ways to save money every day, but great gift ideas, too. From a free meter,
newsletters, and access to over 1,000 recipes, the gift of a dLife membership is a gift that can help bring a
healthier new year.
It’s in the Stars
Naming a star after your loved one or in honor of a loved is still a wonderful way to be different.
