Allergic Living’s 2012 Holiday Gift Guide
For U.S. residents, the casual, relaxed styling of this Roots leather medical ID bracelet with stainless steel emblem makes a life-saving and attractive gift for the young man on your list. MedicAlert medical ID speaks for you when you can’t speak for yourself. $49.95 at www.medicalert.org.
Canadian residents, meantime, can offer a loved one a medical ID gift that gives back. When you purchase a 50th Anniversary Limited Edition MedicAlert Bracelet in signature red by December 20, $10 will be donated to support the Canadian MedicAlert Foundation’s No Child Without program. That program offers free live-saving ID bracelets to students with medical conditions between the ages of 4 and 14 at participating Canadian schools. $49 plus tax at www.medicalert.ca.
Not to toot our own horn, but a gift subscription to Allergic Living magazine does make a wonderful present for anyone on your list with food and environmental allergies or celiac disease. The award-winning magazine features helpful, engaging and sometimes provocative articles on topics of great relevance to those living with these conditions. Also: great expert Q&As, tips for travel and dining, new product reviews and sensational recipes free of top allergens and gluten. Affordable prices vary by length of subscription. www.allergicliving.com/subscribe
Up for splurging? Your allergic special person will love the luxury of a certified Asthma & Allergy Friendly SmartSilk Comforter. It’s a great choice for many reasons: the duvet is filled with silk, which repels dust mites, covered in soft cotton, lightweight and wicks away moisture, so there’s no getting too warm under the covers.
