Suffering from sore feet and foot pain can be a real drag, so why not treat your loved one to a gift that can soothe this soreness.
My Top Gift Choice For People With Sore Feet
There are many reasons that people may suffer from sore feet, such as injuries to the foot, toe, achilles, heel and ankle or simply from overuse and wearing the wrong type of footwear.
And this is a common problem, with a 2014 survey by the American Podiatric Medical Association estimating that 77% of Americans experience foot pain of some sort during their lives.
Which sucks as having foot pain can really restrict you when walking, exercising, driving, and carrying out your regular daily activities.
So if you have a loved one that complains about their feet feeling sore, how about getting them a little something to help ease the pain.
As the following gift ideas for people with sore feet are all ones that can bring them some form of relief.
1. A Comfortable And Supportive Pair Of Shoes
A lot of the time the cause of someone's sore feet is wearing inadequete, mis-sized or unsuitable footwear during the day.
So our first gift idea is to get them some comfortable and supportive footwear instead.
Because whether that is sneakers for walking or exercising in, boots for working in or shoes for the office, this can make a real difference to how their feet and body feels by the end of each day.
With a good choice for a pair of walking/running shoes being the Asics Gel Nimbus 23 running shoes.
2. A Pair Of Lush Slippers To Relax In
Our next gift idea is to get someone with sore feet a lush and wonderful pair of slippers to relax in once they get home in the evening.
As slipping a pair of these on will immediately make their overworked feet feel better.
And a pair that I'd recommend are the Orthofeet orthopedic slippers.
As not only are these slippers spacious and comfortable, they also have great arch support and cushioning too.
3. A Pair Of Foot Compression Sleeves
One way of cutting down on foot inflammation and pain is by wearing a pair of compression foot sleeves.
As these improve blood circulation around the feet as well as compressing the muscles and tendons in your foot.
So a pair of TechWare compression foot sleeves as a gift could help them to get around easier and in less discomfort.
4. A Pair Of Ice Socks To Reduce Painful Inflammation
When sore feet become swollen and inflamed a good way to reduce this inflammation and discomfort is to use ice on them.
So a pair of ice socks they can wear around the house is a great gift idea.
As the Natracure cold therapy socks have various pockets in them where they can slip a gel ice pack into to soothe their foot pain.
Which is ideal when they feel the need for some cold therapy.
5. A Hot Foot Spa For Soothing Relaxation
One of the best things you can do for your sore and tired feet at the end of a long day is to soak them in a heated foot spa.
As not only does the warm water help to soften and relax them, the jets and massage rollers inside will make your feet feel great again.
So the gift of a Wahl therapeutic heated foot spa is one that most people with foot pain will appreciate.
As this one has everything they need and is deep enough to soak up to their ankles too.
6. Epsom Salt Foot Soak For Healthier Feet
You could pair the gift of a heated foot spa with a pack of Foot Cure tea tree oil foot soak.
As this is a foot soak containing epsom salts that will help to right a list of ailments that people can have with their feet.
And it's also ideal for getting tired feet to relax and let go.
7. An Electric Shiatsu Foot Massager
A good foot massage is a great way of treating sore and tired feet.
And a gift idea that will allow your loved one to massage their feet any time they need to is to get them an electric Shiatsu foot massager.
As these machines help to reduce foot pain and fatigue by three methods via heat, kneading and rolling massage, and air compression.
So they can sit down and relax with their feet in one of these massagers and enjoy to their hearts content.
And for a good quality choice check out the Renpho Shiatsu foot massager.
8. A Manual Foot Roller Massager
If they'd prefer to get their foot massage the manual way then you could get them a foot massage roller instead.
As these contain nibs and indents that work into the foot as you roll your weight over them.
Which is great for relaxing and rejuvenating tired feet by relieving the tension that has built up.
So check out the Gaiam Restore foot massage roller for a simple tool that they'll find useful.
9. A Wedge Pillow To Elevate Their Feet
Elevating your feet above your chest level as you are relaxing in bed or on the couch can be a good way of relieving foot pain.
As this alters the blood flow to the feet and can help to reduce swelling.
So a wedge pillow such as the Zen Bamboo leg elevation pillow is a really useful accessory for them to have in the armoury.
10. A Comfortable Foam Foot Rest For Work
A gift idea that can keep their feet nice and comfy throughout the day is to get them a foam foot rest to use under their desks.
And by elevating their feet too they can sit in a healthier posture and avoid other aches and pains that may come from working on a computer all day.
So check out the Ergofoam foot rest for one that'll do the job nicely.
And you can even flip this one over and use it as a foot rocker too, which is an added bonus.
11. An Anti-Fatigue Mat To Reduce Lower Limb And Foot Pain
One cause of sore feet, ankles and legs is when someone is on their feet for long periods each day.
So a gift for their home that can really help them to avoid this lower limb fatigue is to get them an anti-fatigue mat.
As the Sky Solutions anti-fatigue mat can be placed in their kitchen to use while cooking, in their home office if they use a standing desk, while doing the ironing or anywhere where they'll be on their feet.
And this can make a big difference to how their feet feel at the end of the day.
12. Toe Dividers For Relieving Foot Stress
One tool that some people with sore feet find relieving is using toe separators.
As using these to spread your toes out for 15 minutes per day can really help to releive the stress and tension felt in your feet.
So the gift of the YogaToes Gems toe separator could be a good one if you think your loved one would benefit from trying it.
13. Bath Salts To Take Away All Their Aches And Pains
While sore feet and foot pain may be the biggest problem for your loved one, they will probably have aches and pains elsewhere to contend with too.
So a gift idea that can relax their sore feet but also help them to relax their whole body and unwind is to get them a pack of Epsom bath salts.
As the Coach Soak muscle recovery bath salts will disolve in their warm bath water and help to soothe their aching muscles and mind while taking a nice long soak in the tub.
14. Treat Them To A Foot Massage
Our final gift idea is something that'll take a bit of effort from you and that is to give their tired feet a lovely foot massage.
As this will feel like bliss to them and will definitely put you in the good books.
And pair this with the Majestic Pure sore muscle massage oil for a truly soothing experience.
