Christmas Gift Guide

Posted by Francis Whitehead on November 24, 2023

Christmas Gift Guide

It’s the beginning of the Festive season, and regardless of if you’re more of an Ebeneezer Scrooge than a Buddy the Elf, one thing stands true. What am I going to give my friends and family for Christmas?!

It seems every year there’s always the same presents: the reluctantly accepted but reliable pair of socks, the tub of chocolates where only the coconut ones survive before Boxing Day, and yet another Top Gear DVD boxset for dad. But what about some useful daily living aids that will make independent living easier for your loved ones?

That’s why we at Ability Superstore have compiled a fantastically festive Christmas Gift Guide to give you all the ideas you need. Let those sleigh bells ring!

Washable and Reusable Christmas Face Mask

Christmas Face Masks

Winter is fast approaching, and there’s no doubt that in colder temperatures, illness and bugs always spread faster. Even 3 years after the first lockdown, variants of COVID are still going around, so there’s never a better time to wear a mask! And if you are, why not keep it festive with these Christmas Face Masks? With a wide range of patterns from holly to stockings, these make the ideal gift for anyone keeping safe!

Luxury Tartan Cushioned Lap Tray

Picture this, it’s near 8pm and even though it’s not long after you demolished your Christmas dinner with 5 pigs in blankets and all the trimmings, you feel rather peckish for some cheese and mulled wine while you put your feet up. That’s where the Luxury Tartan Cushioned Lap Tray comes in. You can place everything you need on it while keeping snug and comfy! It comes in a wide range of patterns and designs, but this Christmassy red tartan is our favourite. Not only that, it’s also made in the UK with British fabrics from Made in the Mill, so you can be sure of a high quality product!

Made In The Mill Blue Badge Permit Holder

Made In The Mill Blue Badge Permit Holders

Another great offering from Lancashire's own Made in the Mill are these Blue Badge Permit Holders, all available in a range of colourful designs! Choose from birds, to owls, to puppies, even foxes! Definitely something a bit more different to the usual plain black ones and would be a welcome addition to any car.

Microwaveable Slippers and Neck Warmer

Microwaveable Slippers and Neck Warmer Set

The cost of living crisis has made gas and electric bills absolutely astronomical, and some can be left to feel freezing in their own homes as the temperatures drop. A handy solution for getting circulation going in your body are these Microwaveable Slippers and Neck Warmer! Simply place them in the microwave for a short while and feel heat dispersed all through your body, saving you money by not having to crank the heating up.

Water Resistant Cosy Fleece Blanket

Water Resistant Cosy Fleece Blanket

Whether you are out and about at a festival, sports event or just sitting for long periods waiting for the bus, or in your wheelchair, this stunning Water Resistant Cosy Fleece Blanket will keep you warm and dry. Complete with both a rain-busting waterproof layer and a comfortable fleece layer, you can be sure you or your loved ones can go about their journeys and stay snug! Perfect for the dreadful winter weather.


Gift Card

Ability Superstore Gift Card

What’s the greatest gift of all? Being able to choose exactly what you want of course! That’s why giving someone an Ability Superstore Gift Card makes for a perfect idea. You can choose from £10, £20, and £50, which someone can use as free credit towards any purchase on our website. These are also good for when you’re not sure what to get for someone!
