Beat the Boredom

Handy Gadgets That Make Life Easier

  • It’s nice to have something to drink by your bedside when you’re sick. That’s when a small tea pot (not too heavy) or a fruit infuser water bottle comes in handy.
  • Much to my own surprise, a multitasking bed tray is one of the most used gifts I’ve ever received. You can use the cushion padded lap desk to eat in bed, place your laptop on or use it to write/colour/craft on the couch.
  • Cute and useful: a fashionable pill and vitamin organizer clutch.
  • The Spoonie Planner and Medical Diary are powerful tools to help chronically ill people organize and tackle their health issues in an efficient way. And it makes a beautiful gift too.
  • It’s a splurge but kitchen tools that help your friend put a nourishing meal on the table when they’re running low on energy is an ultimate spoonie gift. The Crockpot turns cooking into an effortless chore and clean-up is a breeze. I’m also a big fan of the KitchenAid blender – you can make a lot more than smoothies with your blender!
