Christmas gift ideas for the hard of hearing

Dehumidifier pot

OK, it’s not going to be the most exciting present under the tree this year but, for the hearing aid wearer in your life, it could be one of the most useful.
Dehumidifier pots remove moisture from hearing aids, this helps prolong the life of the aid and keeps it functioning properly – and aid that it regularly popped into one of these will work longer and better.

Amazon have some of these but you can get them from your local audiologist or hearing aid seller as well.

Lip Reader

The Lip Reader novel features a colorful cast of characters—an unkempt uncle living in a school bus; a grandfather who preaches in a rundown church; a grandmother born deaf; an aunt fluent in sign language but lacking in social graces; and Sapphie, who finds courage and hope despite mother Rea’s unthinkable act of betrayal.

It was the winner of the 2008 Top Prize in Fiction at the Heart of America Christian Writers Awards.

You can purchase it in hardcopy or as an eBook from here.

A hearing test

Now, this could quite easily be the most unpopular present ever given. But for someone who is having trouble hearing and won’t go and get it checked out, it’s a great present. It’s some tough love. You’ll probably get stared at over the turkey and shouted at after a few glasses of wine in the evening but if it gives them the kick to go and see an audiologist it’ll be the best present they’ve had in a long time.
