Vertical Mouse + Keyboard support
This gift is great for anyone who’s recently gotten a desk job or spends most of their day typing. Wrist support is important to consider to help prevent carpal tunnel. People who’ve recently started spending their days on the computer may feel hand and wrist pain as a result of the strenuous positioning of their hands at a keyboard for an extended period of time. This particular set is from Etsy and makes a practical gift a fun one, too.
Therapy Bracelet for Pain
If you have a friend or family member with arthritis and carpal tunnel, this may be a great gift for them! These titanium bracelets are magnetic and work to help improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain in those with a number of conditions, like carpal tunnel, arthritis, tennis elbow, and tendonitis. *Please review all medical warnings before use.
Amazon Kindle Fire
At the end of a long day, your hands are tired. The great thing about a digital reader, like an Amazon Kindle, is the ability to prop it up and read, hands-free. If you know an avid reader who spends all day using their hands, this may be the perfect gift for them. (Or you!)
Quick Heat Paraffin Wax Bath
This gift is great for anyone on your holiday shopping list who likes to relax. This wax bath provides customizable thermal heat relief for achy hands of all shapes and sizes. In addition, it leaves your hands feeling like you’ve just left the spa.
