GIFT GUIDE: SUPPORTING HEALTHCARE WORKERS
jackrabbitblog | November 1, 2020
Healthcare workers have been working overtime to deal with the overwhelming cases caused by the pandemic. Everyone is giving back to help support and make their time on the job more comfortable. If you have a healthcare worker in your life, make their holiday by giving them the gift of comfort.
Here are our top five gifts recommended by our UX Designer, Destini. Before she started her design career, she served as a Medical Technician in the Air Force, caring for military members and their families at Travis Air Force Base.
I remember working twelve hour shifts on my feet all day in the hospital. Today, pandemic workers are putting in countless hours to support their community. Their feet are literally on the front line holding the load.
My recommendation is the OOFOS Fibre Recovery Shoe ($140). The closed-toe design is best to give your feet a break during your long hours.
Socks are always the butt of holiday jokes. Imagine kids rushing to their trees and ripping apart wrapping paper only to reveal a pair of basic socks. To a healthcare worker, a set of comfortable socks while running from patient to patient can make a big difference.
My recommendation is Balega Silver, No Show Socks ($15). The antibacterial properties and performance is the ideal option for front-line healthcare workers.
You can easy away aches and pains after a long day with your chosen message gun. Standing, walking, and repetitive moments for long hours can cause your muscles to cramp up.
My recommendation is the Hyperice Hypervolt Plus Bluetooth ($399). The 30% more power, paired with the Hyperice App, you can follow guided massage routine that will help to knock out all of your aches.
In addition to a massage gun, I also recommend following up with a CBD Lotion. CBD has come a long way. This completely non-psychoactive treatment can help relax your muscles after using a massage gun.
My recommendation is TheraOne CBD Lotion ($55).
Last, but certainly not least, is a good water bottle. Being hydrated for all of us is essential, but keeping your health when working with at-risk patients is crucial. Our HydroFlask water bottles help keep the temperature of your water consistent throughout the entire day. So, no matter what, you can get a refreshing sip when you need it.
My recommendation is the mother load version of the Hydro Flask, the 40 oz Wide Mouth ($59). 40oz are better than 39oz!
