The gift of warmth comes in all kinds of presents. Coats, hats, scarves, gloves, boots, insulated underwear, wool socks, electric blankets and on and on.
How about a unique kind of warmth? A towel warmer.
I instantly thought of my niece when I saw the towel warmer from Brookstone. She is 23 years old and is 100% disabled. Whitney is unable to walk without the help of her mother, Nancy. My niece is also legally blind, has diminished hearing, and communicates only through her actions and touch.
Nancy has taught me that instead of focusing on what she cannot do to find things that she can enjoy.
She definitely possesses her sense of touch and what better way when you get out of the shower but to have a warm towel wrapped around you. Ahhhh… the immediate gift of warmth!
The towel warmer will also accommodate robes and blankets. It even warms mittens, gloves, hats and scarves before going out into the wintry cold. You can imagine how heavenly that would feel!
It’s a wonderful gift for women who are cold natured and would certainly be appreciated by the elderly! It’s a great gift for anyone or any occasion!
Sometimes because of our mindset, we have difficulty finding that perfect gift for grandparents, parents, children, family and friends who are disabled or may not be able to do the things they used to do. Remember the five senses – vision, hearing, taste, smell and touch. Focus on their strengths, and you will find the perfect gift.
You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. – Jane Goodall
