According to the Family Caregiver Alliance, more than 40 million people provide unpaid care for their loved ones each year.
If you have a friend who is a caregiver, then you already know by now that they are worth 1000 gifts for all the work they do.
But that would cost us a lot so sticking to one gift at the end of the year is usually a good idea.
The year is coming to an end and so are the holidays and perhaps you’re thinking about a gift you could buy for your friend who is a caregiver.
In this post, I’ll share some ideas on gift ideas for your friend who is a caregiver.
Let’s get right into it.
Gift ideas for your friends who are caregivers
Massage gift cards
Care-giving can require a lot of physical activity. Thus, even a minute of massage is appreciated by caregivers.
If you can find a gift card to a massage parlor, your caregiver friend will love you forever.
Continuing on with the theme of relaxation, you can give your friend the gift of a spa day. A day of relaxation will help your caregiver friend recuperate and be rejuvenated enough to care for their loved one.
Home spa kit
And in case, they don’t want to brave the traffic or bad weather to get to a massage place or full-on spa, you could get them an at-home spa kit so they can relax at home.
Send them to see their favorite show
Is your friend into the theater arts or do they have a favorite band? Send them off to enjoy one of these experiences!
Books can help anyone escape into a place of fantasy and enjoyment…even if it’s just for a few hours.
So whether it’s a year’s subscription to an audio book service like Audible or a book series you know your friend will enjoy, books are wonderful gifts.
Apart from the gifts that help your friend relax, they will also appreciate household help.
Any help they can get with cleaning their home, laundry, folding, yard maintenance and household repairs go a long way.
These days, you can buy gift vouchers for such services from local providers or from marketplaces like Amazon.
Everybody needs to eat!
You can buy groceries or prepare meals for your friend.
If you can’t do this yourself, you can purchase a meal delivery service for your friend.
Is your friend into any hobbies? Do they like to crochet, paint, knit or play a sport?
You can support that hobby with a thoughtful gift!
These are just a few gift ideas for your friends who are caregivers.
Caregivers are some of the most-overlooked and under-appreciated people. And so, show them you care these holidays by surprising them with one of these gift ideas.
