A Little (Dental) Inspiration for the Perfect Holiday Gift
The holidays are a favorite time of year. It is a time filled with family and friends (and lots of delicious foods and treats!). The holidays are a season of giving, and there’s nothing better than the gift of a healthy smile! Everyone can use a little inspiration when it comes to gift giving, so here are some dental inspired gift ideas:
Give a GoodMouth subscription
Give the gift of a new toothbrush (manual or electric replacement heads). When the old one is wearing out, a new one is shipped directly to the recipient’s door! As if this isn’t already a great idea, for every GoodMouth product you buy, GoodMouth will donates a toothbrush, or the equivalent in dental care, to someone in need through their Giving Goodness program.
We know, we know! So practical. So boring. But so good for your teeth! Travel sizes of toothpaste or mouthwash along with a toothbrush and floss make excellent stocking surprises that can be put to good use! Stuff stockings with mints or gum that are good for your smile. Clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay.
Children’s Books on Oral Hygiene
It’s always better to start oral habits early, and many children love a fun book! There are thousands of titles that often come with stuffed animals or dolls to help bring the story to life (Check out Scholastic’s list of books to read before a dental visit).
A Few Fun (and wacky) Gift Ideas
Come on now! Who wouldn’t like a stuffed tooth?!
Tooth-shaped magnets make a great stocking stuffer or a small gift for office gift exchanges.
Whatever you decide to give to your loved ones this holiday season, be sure to keep in mind that it’s the thought that counts. It isn’t about what’s under the Christmas tree, but who’s around it. Happy Holidays!
