For a joyful, holiday year... Gift ideas for family members and friends with disability challenges

"What can I choose as a holiday gift? I want to help make life easier and more accessible for a loved one who has special needs..."

If it’s a gift for someone who is blind, has low vision, deaf, hearing impaired, arthritic, mobility challenged, aging, or elderly, the idea is to find the right gift to make a difference in that person's daily life.

Let us take the guess work out of your holiday shopping.  Holiday gift giving can be much easier right here at MaxiAids with our wide range of useful products that will help you find just the right item for that special person(s).  Thoughtful and functional gifts go a long way and will prove useful, as we offer many products that will assist in daily challenges inside and out of the home.

Holiday meals and the joy of cooking...

Does your family member or friend with vision impairments enjoy cooking? Make your gift giving a useful one and you will most likely get an invite to their next holiday meal!   Here at MaxiAids we offer products to aid in the kitchen and make food preparation enjoyable again.  With those who have low vision or can't see, products like talking measuring cups, liquid indicators, boil alerts, talking microwave ovens, and other helpful kitchen tools and accessories are sure to bring a smile on their face when receiving a holiday gift as functional as these kitchen and cooking products are.

The joy of reading...

When reading becomes an issue, why not choose a gift that turns text into speech?  What a great way to give your sight impaired family member a wide range of freedom in reading possibilities!  Open the door to fiction and nonfiction adventures, a favorite author, magazine subscriptions, newspapers, or anything they want to read.  What better way than to cozy up around the fireplace this winter and enjoy a good book while listening to the spoken words, or when out and about they can 'read' the restaurant menus.

The joy of better hearing...

When gift buying for those with hearing impairment, MaxiAids offers so many choices for those with hearing loss.  Personal amplifiers help make listening to conversations and watching TV more enjoyable.  As loved ones begin to lose their hearing, do you find they're getting frustrated trying to hear what others are saying and missing parts of the conversations? Or are they blasting the TV volume so loud that it's disturbing others in the room or keeping their partner awake at night?  Our amplifier headphones will allow them to hear better and more clearly without disruptive background noise or disturbing others.  MaxiAids has so many choices of personal amplifiers and TV amplifiers that allow for better and ultra crisp hearing. 

Be part of the conversation again with personal sound hearing amplifiers!
