Last minute gift ideasDecember 19th, 2016
With the shopping days left until the big day dwindling, the Christmas pressure may be starting to ramp up. It can be tricky to think of new ideas, especially for the friends and family who already seem to have everything. Today we’d like to bring you a selection of gift ideas that might just put a smile on the face of those oral health conscious family and friends who are still on your ‘to buy for’ list.
Here at Ock Street we are pleased to be able to offer a range of gift voucher options. You can purchase vouchers in £20 and £50 denominations, or alternatively why not consider a voucher for a specific treatment. If you’re looking to buy for that special someone who really wants to get their teeth whitened, for example, why not have a chat with us about a bespoke voucher for this treatment?
There are a range of toothbrushes on the market, both the conventional type, and electric versions. As a recent convert to the electric toothbrush, I’m still enjoying the squeaky-clean feeling I get after every brush, combined with the satisfaction of knowing I’ve gotten to all those hard to reach areas. Why not bring that feeling to someone else? There are a range of electric toothbrushes available on the market, to suit every budget and set of requirements. There are also versions for children too.
Timers for tooth brushing
When setting about our oral healthcare routines, we should be aiming to brush our teeth for two minutes at a time. Many of us struggle to know when those two minutes are up. Luckily there are a range of timers available online that can let you know once you’ve been brushing for long enough, and which can also guide you regarding areas of your mouth you might have missed. For those friends and family who love technology, why not consider gifting an app for this purpose: there are lots of options available that can help them keep track of their brushing time.
Tooth fairy cushions
For the little ones on your list, why not consider a cushion with a little pouch for transporting milk teeth to the tooth fairy. Many online retailers stock a wide range of innovative designs: there will be a design to match the interests of any child. All that then needs to be considered is how generous the tooth fairy might be feeling when they switch the tooth for a coin as the child is sleeping!
A treat or two
Through the media we constantly hear messages about the dangers of sugar and why we should avoid it. However, we’ve all got that family member or friend that has got a sweet tooth. Instead of opting for the normal selection box or chocolates this year, why not seek them out some lower sugar alternatives. Not only will they still get to enjoy a sweet treat, but you’ll be supporting them with their oral health too, and helping them avoid tooth decay.
Hopefully we’ve given you a few ideas to finish off your shopping this Christmas: if you’re lucky, some of those January sales might just have started already too!
