Last-minute holiday gift shopping can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be thoughtless. How’s this for a fabulous gift idea? – Help your loved ones treat their feet to some kind attention, respect, and even pampering. The staff at Montgomery Foot Care Specialists in Montgomery, Alabama suggests some unique places to go for thoughtful gifts that are easy to pick up and that your family and friends will love:
Specialty Athletic Shoe Store
This is the perfect place to go for the runner or triathlete in your life. Naturally, they have quality athletic shoes (consider a gift certificate), but stores that specialize in running shoes have all kinds of other interesting products, including
- funky shoelaces
- devices that keep laces tied just so, to minimize foot pain
- stickers and bumper magnets that proudly declare one’s triathlete status (“70.3” for example means that they’ve completed a half Ironman race)
- nutrition bars and goos to down on the run
- reflective vests and safety lights for those early-morning/late-evening workouts
- clothing and special socks that whisk away sweat and help keep feet clean.
More great equipment for exercise can be found at tech and electronic stores. Some ideas: a fitness watch; a heart monitor; a gift card for Google Play or iTunes store for apps that help diabetics and dieters stay on track.
Ok, they’re not directly related to pampering your feet, but sunglasses give extra incentive and a fashionable push to get out and get heart-healthy (and foot-healthy!) exercise. You can choose sunglasses and accessories with specific designs for activities like playing golf, walking, running, or biking.
What an excellent place to find gifts for foot pampering, like quality foot scrubs, moisturizing lotions, nail trimmers and polishes for a perfect at-home pedicure! A gift certificate for a salon pedicure is another gift that people really appreciate.
Give anyone on your gift list who suffers from bunions, warts, nail fungus, or any kind of foot pain a referral to Dr. Heidi M. Christie or Dr. Chandra L. Day-Houts. We specialize in all things foot-related and have a special department just for custom orthotic fittings. Give the gift of foot health by calling us at (334) 396-3668 or contact us online.
