Whether it’s cancer or an autoimmune disease or some other chronic illness, it can be tough to find the right present to give to your friend or loved one. Maybe they don’t have a lot of energy, are in pain, or don’t get out much. How do you know what they really want? Or more importantly… NEED? These are the 50+ best gifts to give to someone with a chronic illness (or anyone who wants to be healthier) and for everyone’s budget. Trust me. They will thank you.
To make it easier for you, I divided the gifts from least to most expensive. I also included a short blurb about each one because some of these presents may seem a little weird or “out there.” You may wonder, why would this be a good present? Who on earth would want this? Unless you have walked in these shoes, it can be tough to understand the world of having to struggle a little harder than most. These gifts will be well-received and are super practical!
PS – While each of the products is placed into three price categories, please understand if the manufacturer changes the prices and they end up being a little more or less than what they are listed as here.

Our bodies are full of electricity, and connecting to the ground provides electrical and chemical reactions through our feet. This may help to reduce inflammation, reduce stress, sleep better, increase energy, and even combat jetlag. Earthing is obviously easy and free. Just step outside and onto the grass.

Remember those smoothies we discussed earlier? Mighty Maca is one of my favorite superfood powders to add to smoothies. It’s rich in antioxidants and full of fiber, vitamin C, copper, iron, and 20 amino acids. Maca is an adaptogen which may help to enhance energy, mood, and memory and boost sexual health.
Cozy and comfy. Are you noticing a theme? It’s a big part of dealing with some of the adverse effects of having a chronic illness. Organic blankets are a great cozy gift to give.
Swannies Blue Light Glasses
Many people with health issues have problems either falling asleep or staying asleep. Melatonin is the hormone that regulates your sleep/wake cycle, and blue lights from your cell phone, TV, computer, etc trick your body into thinking it’s still daytime. Since it’s impossible to live in a bubble and not be away from our cell phones, tablets, computers and TV’s for any length of time, day glasses for screen glare and classic blue light blockers are a favorite health hack.
