Are You Shopping For A Trichy Christmas Gift?
Christmas is almost here and one of the my favorite things in the world to do is shop for meaningful and thoughtful gifts.
As someone with trichotillomania I totally understand what it’s like to cope with this hair pulling disorder and I’ve used a lot of cool tools and products over the years to help me manage it.
I thought with the season approaching I would make a list of good Christmas gifts to buy someone who has trichotillomania.
What I like about these specific gifts is that it shows you actually took time to find something that would help a hair puller feel better this Christmas.
Tickets To The BFRB Conference 2019
There are lots of sessions to attend during the conference dates; some for kids, some for adults – they are all educational, inspirational and motivating no matter where a person with trichotillomania is at on their journey. There’s a large conference area set up where they have booths from all sorts of different exhibitors in the BFRB space.
Everyone stays in the same hotel, we get together for the conference sessions, have a big dinner, enjoy the nightlife and swimming pool.
Any Trichster would be absolutely at home at this conference, as someone with severe anxiety who has battled Trich her whole life, I can tell you this is the most welcoming, loving, inspiring environment to be in when you have this disorder.
If you have the financial resources to send someone with trichotillomania to this conference, DO IT! It’s life-changing. Every single year the conference location changes, last year it was on the West Coast, this year it will be on the East Coast in the Washington DC area.
Keen Bracelets by HabitAware
These habit detecting bracelets are great for personal awareness if you have trichotillomania. If you know someone who pulls their hair out without realizing their doing it, this is a great tool for them.
I bought a pair of these Keen bracelets awhile back and I’m so pleased with my purchase because they helped me become conscious of my hair pulling so I could stop it.
They work like a little hand alarm, it buzzes your wrist gently when you are in the picking/pulling position. What I love about them is that you can fine tune the settings to make it work for you and your particular positioning! These make a great gift for a hair puller whether they are a kid or an adult.
Faith-Based Trichotillomania Journal
This is a faith based journal that is full of the love of God for a Trichster.
It aims to show someone battling trichotillomania that it is God’s will for them to be healed and whole.
I personally wrote this journal, I’m a bible school graduate, I hold an Associate Degree in Theology. This journal has a firm biblical foundation for healing and wholeness and was created by a Trichster, for a Trichster.
I know God wants every one of His children healed, it’s my sincere hope that this journal will lift any person with trichoitllomania out of despair and impart faith to believe God for complete restoration in every area.
CBD Oil Is A Great Supplement For Anxiety
CBD oil has been my go to for anxiety relief now for months. If anxiety, stress and depression are triggers for the person you are shopping for, I HIGHLY recommend some CBD oil. The oil comes in a tincture and it goes under the tongue for about a minute.
CBD oil immediately brings me relief and calms my nerves.
That’s why you hear so many good things about CBD, not just for anxiety but for a whole host of other things. CBD oil works with the systems of the body, not the symptoms like traditional meds. 50% of CBD users quit taking their prescriptions over time.
At first CBD oil seems expensive but this brand here is very potent, most people, including myself, only need a few drops a day to get us by. One bottle is good for months.
It’s definitely one of the best things that has ever happened to me and it would make a great gift for someone with trichotillomania that you know.
Buy NATURAL 500mg Full Spectrum CBD, it’s the only one I recommend for someone with Trich – it’s amazing!!
These T-shirts we’re created by a fellow Trichster who poured her heart into making them in order to raise money for her Trichotillomania Financial Assistance Foundation. Not only are they awesome trich shirts, they were created by one of us for the benefit of the whole community.
Book For Kids
This is a book for kids written by a kid with trichotillomania. It’s a good book to read with your child who has trichotillomania because it will help them cope and understand it better. Hair pulling is a unique struggle and this book helps let kids know they are not alone in this.
Fun Fidgets for Hair Pullers
These are some of the best fidets to play with for with trichotillomania. I have a bunch of trichotillomania fidget toys that I love because they keep my hands busy. Fidgets are inexpensive gift ideas for kids and adults with hair pulling habits.
Experiences Make Good Gifts
What is something that you can do together? Find something to make good memories that would be fun and get their mind off their anxiety, stress and cares of this disorder.
How about a concert, a trip, a good restaurant, a spa day? One of my favorite places to look for ideas for some experiences is on Groupon! You can have the item delivered electronically to you right away so you can print it out, put it in a card!
I plan to continue adding to this list but the gifts I chose are meant to be thoughtful and meaningful.
What are some of your favorite thoughtful gift ideas for someone with Trichotillomania?
What are some of the best gifts you’ve given that really impacted your trichster?
I would love some help building this list!
