The holidays are here and gift giving is a tradition that is celebrated by millions of people. We gather with family, fill our bellies with good food, and exchange neatly wrapped presents with the people we love. Ok, not all presents are wrapped neatly, but it’s the thought that counts, right?

Although a lot of products are advertised on TV and online, there are very few that are tailored towards someone who is blind or visually impaired. That’s why we did some research and found a few fun and thought provoking products that you can buy for them!

Funny Braille T-Shirt – Everyone needs a shirt to wear, but why not wear one that will make people laugh? The shirt reads, “The worst thing to read in braille, Do Not Touch.” Spreading the joy of humor is something everyone can enjoy.

Magic Speed Cube – This one is a little more on the serious side. It exercises your brain and reduces the stress of a long day. It can foster sense of space, enhance memory, and is a great puzzle game for people of all skills!

Talking Clock Keychain – This is a gift that can be used every day. It is great for traveling, people who are in a hurry, or find it easier to press a single button, opposed to finding their phone for the time. But wait, there’s more! If you push the button twice, it tells you the year, month, day, and day of the week.

Uno Card Game – Everyone loves to play UNO, but what if you cannot see the cards? Mattel created UNO Braille for that exact reason. They even made audible and printable braille instructions for the game!

Reading Lamp – For individuals who have some usable vision, but have a hard time seeing without bright light, this LED reading light comes in handy. It has three levels of brightness, a rechargeable battery, and is flexible for easy maneuvering.

Back and Neck Massager – This gift is geared towards everyone, but massagers are relaxing and are great for stress. It has eight massage modes, infrared heating that provides gentle to hot heat, and comes with three adjustable speed settings.
