With one out of every five people in the US suffering from some degree of hearing loss, there’s a high probability that you know at the least one person who has some trouble hearing.
And bearing in mind the strong connections between healthy hearing and physical, mental, and social health, the holiday season is the perfect opportunity to give an extremely meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are a couple of great gift ideas:
A Year’s Provision of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who genuinely looks forward to shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nonetheless, hearing aids won’t achieve much without the batteries, making them a requirement. By furnishing a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could remove the responsibility and cost connected with the chore of managing the supply.

Custom-made Ear Protection
Are you shopping for any musicians? Any hunters in the family?
The gift of custom ear protection can reduce the risk of hearing injury and long-term hearing loss. And in contrast to the inexpensive foam earplugs available at the convenience store, custom earplugs are specifically designed to curb harmful sounds while conserving the important sounds. This removes the “muffled” sound related to foam earplugs.

Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids demand periodic maintenance and cleaning to ensure lasting, optimum performance. And while this can’t be averted, it can be made a great deal easier.
Here are a couple of gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers make use of ultraviolet light to safely and thoroughly kill hazardous pathogens, including harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers remove excessive moisture and increase the life of the parts of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools feature a magnet for battery removal along with other tools to clean the various parts of a hearing aid. This is the swiss army knife of hearing aid tools.
- Hearing aid storage cases can protect the hearing aids when not being used and can make transport easier.
Not sure which accessories you’ll require for a particular hearing aid? Talk to us and we’ll help you find the most suitable products.
Here’s a favorite gift idea, as these devices turn a pair of hearing aids into a pair of premium headphones.
Streamers are gadgets that will detect an audio signal—from a computer, TV, or other device—and will send the signal directly to the hearing aids for crystal clear sound.
Did you know that numerous hearing aid models can be managed with portable electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a tremendous gift in the first place, but for those with hearing loss, it’s even better. Together with compatible hearing aids, you can inconspicuously control hearing aid volume and can change the settings straight from the portable device.
This is one function that, the moment you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Talk to us and we’ll inform you of which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
And finally, if you want to go all-out this year, how about giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
Admittedly, you can’t just go out and buy a pair of hearing aids. Each individual’s hearing loss is distinctive and requires a professional hearing test, not to mention that each individual will have specific preferences with regard to hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the expense could encourage someone to finally buy the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a better all-around quality of life.
And just how many gifts can accomplish that?
