With one out of every five individuals in the United States afflicted with some form of hearing loss, there’s a good chance you know at least one person who has some trouble hearing.
And considering the strong links amongst healthy hearing and physical, mental, and social well-being, the holiday season is the ideally suited opportunity to give a highly meaningful gift.
If you do know somebody with hearing loss, here are some fantastic gift ideas:
A Year’s Supply of Hearing Aid Batteries
Do you know anyone who actually enjoys shopping for batteries?
We don’t either.
Nevertheless, hearing aids won’t achieve much without the batteries, which makes them a must have. By giving a year’s supply of hearing aid batteries, you could take away the burden and expense associated with the work of managing the supply.

Customized Ear Protection
Are you buying for any musicians? Any hunters in the household?
The gift of custom made ear protection could prevent hearing damage and future hearing loss. And contrary to the cheap foam earplugs available at the convenience store, custom earplugs are expressly constructed to curb detrimental sounds while conserving the essential sounds. This gets rid of the “muffled” sound connected to foam earplugs.

Hearing Aid Accessories
All hearing aids mandate periodic upkeep and cleaning to assure lasting, optimal performance. And although this can’t be averted, it can be made a whole lot easier.
Here are some gift ideas to make hearing aid maintenance and cleaning easier:
- Hearing aid sanitizers apply ultraviolet light to safely and comprehensively kill harmful pathogens, such as harmful bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and molds.
- Hearing aid dehumidifiers clear away excess moisture and increase the life of the parts of the hearing aids.
- Hearing aid multi-tools incorporate 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 in use and can make transport easier.
Not certain which accessories you’ll require for a particular hearing aid? Contact us and we’ll help you find the right products.
This is a popular gift idea, as these gadgets turn a pair of hearing aids into a set of top-quality headsets.
Streamers are devices that will pick up an audio signal—from a TV, computer, or other device—and will deliver the signal directly to the hearing aids for crystal clear sound.
Are you aware that numerous hearing aid models can be controlled with portable electronic devices such as cell phones and digital watches?
A smartphone or digital watch is a superb gift in the first place, but for those with hearing loss, it’s better yet. Together with compatible hearing aids, you can discreetly adjust hearing aid volume and can alter the settings right from the portable device.
This is one function that, once you have it, you’ll never go without it again. Give us a call and we’ll inform you of which hearing aids are compatible with which devices.
Last but not least, if you want to go all-out this year, consider giving the ultimate gift of hearing—a set of digital hearing aids.
Of course, you can’t just venture out and buy a pair of hearing aids. Each person’s hearing loss is unique and will require a hearing examination, not to mention that each individual will have special preferences in terms of hearing aid style and functionality.
But presenting a gift card to cover the expense could prompt someone to finally get the hearing aids they know will ultimately lead to a better all-around quality of life.
And just how many gifts can really accomplish that?
