Sometimes it’s difficult to think of gifts for caregivers. Holidays are stressful at the best of times. When you’re a full-time caregiver for someone with a chronic illness or under hospice care, they can be even more so. Give the Caregiver in your life a thoughtful gift that will make the holidays special. [media-credit name=”Photo by Shawnee Wilborn @ Unsplash” align=”aligncenter” width=”800″][/media-credit] Most of us have people in our lives who are caring for elderly parents, hospice patients, and chronically ill family members. Hospice caregivers and nurses are the unsung heroes of the healthcare world. They are constantly on call to help family members with any need at any time. Home caregivers of terminally ill or elderly family members are tireless and always there for their families needs. Sometimes the simple things are the best and caregivers are usually universally not good at self-care. If you have a caregiver in your life and you’re wondering what would make a thoughtful gift, browse through my guide for some great suggestions. All selections are from Etsy shops. I love supporting my fellow artists and makers and have found some of the most precious and fun things here.
Aromatherapy Jewelry for Peace and ClarityOne of my favorite shops on Etsy is Natural Healing Hope
Aromatherapy / Essential Oils to Complete any Care GiftWhat better item to complement one of Laura’s aromatherapy bracelets than an essential oil from The Plant Guru? The Plant Guru is a family run essential oil and natural ingredient company that offers quality oils at fair prices. As an added bonus, they currently have free shipping and who doesn’t like free shipping?! There is also a shop wide 10% discount on any three products purchased. The Plant Guru also carries a broad range of ingredients such as carrier oils, shea butter, and bulk wax for people who like to make their own body butter, lip balm, lotions, and soaps. All their oils are handmade to order and my top choices to give a caregiver comfort are: Lavender essential oil would be perfect for a caregiver. The scent of lavender is calming and relaxing. The French Lavender that The Plant Guru uses is high quality and potent. Lemon Eucalyptus is a bright citrus-y oil that packs an eye-opening invigorating punch that gives energy and wakefulness.
Natural Health and Beauty Products to Delight the SensesWildcraft Botanicals is another one of my favorite shops. I first found Susan Muphy at a farmer’s market in our home state of Colorado. I’ve been a subscriber of her newsletter for years and I love her products! Susan’s products are organic, cruelty-free, and handmade with love in small batches.
Any of the Body Butters at Wildcraft Botanicals would be marvelous for the caregiver in your life. Susan’s products are soothing and comforting, all natural, and they smell amazing! Give your caregiver the gift of soft skin and beautiful aromas to soothe their senses.An amazing self-care product that I highly recommend is Susan’s Magic Sleepy Grains. The sleeping grains are magical. I have a huge problem with waking up at 3 or 4 in the morning and these put me back to sleep every time! I also love, love, love her facial scrubbing grains. They renew the skin with all natural ingredients and bring a glow back to the complexion.
