The Christmas season is here and the deals are abundant (and so are the sugary holiday treats)!
As you doing your Christmas shopping this year, you’re undoubtedly thinking about the needs and wishes of everyone on your list. Sure, you want to delight each person with the amazing gift they never knew they wanted, but don’t forget about the practical stuff, too – the things that will keep your loved ones healthy and loving life for years to come. As you hit the stores on Black Friday, keep an eye out for deals on these fun and healthy gifts for everyone on your list!
For adults, the Sonicare electric toothbrush is a great gift. At around $30, they aren’t cheap, but they’re definitely worth the price to improve your dental health and feel cleaner and fresher every time you brush. Once you try it out, you’ll never go back!
Fun Kids’ Gift Sets
Encourage great dental habits for your kids by putting together colorful, fun, dental-themed gift sets. Start with a toothbrush with their favorite cartoon character – SmileMakers has a wide selection of children’s toothbrushes for children of all ages.
Pair the toothbrush with a flavored toothpaste like those in Crest’s line of kids’ toothpastes. Add a small toy for a stocking stuffer that’s both fun and functional! Remember, children under two should brush with fluoride-free toothpaste.
For older children, alcohol-free mouthwash like ACT for Kids and a package of minty floss picks can help them build great habits that will last into adulthood. Top it all off with a package of fruity sugar-free gum, preferably with Xylitol!
We particularly suggest the Waterpik WP-450 Cordless Water Flosser. Waterpiks have been clinically proven to be twice as effective as traditional dental floss at removing debris between the teeth and improving overall gum health. They’re more comfortable than floss for many people, and studies indicate that people are much more likely to use them every day!
High-Tech Water Bottles
Drinking more water is one of the best things you can do for your teeth and your overall health. Encourage everyone in your family to drink more water with fun, reusable water bottles from Camelbak – they make colorful, easy-to-use kids versions and have a wide range of options for adults.
My Family Dentistry Gift Card
If someone on your Christmas list has been talking about having their teeth whitened or has other dental needs, a My Family Dentistry gift card is the ideal gift! Contact our office to purchase a holiday gift card for anyone in need of dental services.
Wherever you shop this year, put these mouth-friendly gifts at the top of your list. Focus on keeping your family as healthy as possible this holiday season, and celebrate all the people you have to be thankful for.
