When brainstorming holiday gifts, most people don’t consider oral health gifts, but we think they should!
It may sound silly to purchase something as mundane as a toothbrush or floss, but we’ve put together a list of special oral health gifts that we think will be appreciated. We’ve included gifts in a variety of price ranges, so you’re sure to find presents that fit with your budget.
6 Gift Ideas to Make Everyone on Your List Smile
- Sugar-Free Gum ($.99 per pack): This is a small gift, but it makes a good stocking stuffer or for when you want to give someone a little something! And sugar-free gum can have a positive impact on your oral health since it increases saliva production.
- Dental Travel Kit ($15-$30): A dental travel kit can be a fun gift for someone who’s always on the go. Start with a nice toiletry bag and add in a mini toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, and floss.
- Fancy Toothpaste ($10-$15): Special toothpaste can help bring a little joy into the everyday. Search the internet for toothpaste in attractive packaging or with unusual flavors for a gift that’s pleasantly unexpected.
- Electric Toothbrush ($20-$200): Electric toothbrushes are perfect gifts, especially because they are the type of thing people don’t often purchase for themselves, even though they can make your life better. Plus, subscription services like Quip are making these gadgets very trendy right now.
- Water Flossers ($35-$120): Queer Eye was a very popular Netflix show this year, so most of us are now fans of Jonathan Van Ness. If you remember, he frequently purchases water flossers for his clients. These tools use water pressure to clean teeth, which can be more comfortable and effective than string floss.
- Whitening Treatments ($30-$500): Whitening strips from the drugstore are good, but professional whitening is even better!
If you want to treat yourself to a whiter smile in 2020, don’t forget about our new patient whitening special! New patients qualify to receive a take-home whitening kit for free (a $300 value).
We hope our list helps you to check some gifts off of your list. Happy shopping!
