With the holiday season fast approaching, it’s time to start shopping for those special gifts. Make it a gift to remember with fun, modern gadgets designed specifically for those with hearing loss. From light-up alarm clocks to the most up to date hearing technology this holiday, we’ve got it covered. Here’s a selection of some of the best gift ideas for people with hearing loss available this year.

 

Caption telephones

The caption telephone allows you to read captions of every word the caller says on a digital screen, making communication much easier. It has been specifically designed for people with hearing loss.

 

Bed shaker alarms for smartphones

For a bed-rocking wake up call, bed shaker alarms are compatible with your own smartphone. Once linked up, when your smartphone alarm goes off, you’ll be woken up with a gentle shake, so there’s no need to worry about not hearing your alarm anymore.

 

Sonic Bomb Shaker Alarm Clock

Those with hearing loss can rest assured, as this ultra-loud (up to 85 dB) alarm clock also comes with a pillow-buzzing feature to rouse even the deepest of sleepers.

 

The wake up light alarm clock

Philips has created an alarm clock that uses sunrise simulation to wake you up gradually with natural light, leaving you feeling much calmer and more refreshed than the jolt of a traditional alarm clock.

 

Hearing Things

There is nothing better than a good game to get the family together and engaging with each other. This lip-reading challenge game is lots of fun, whilst being completely inclusive for any family members that may suffer from hearing loss.

 

TV Ears

Kiss goodbye to those battles over the TV volume! TV Ears is a wireless headset system that allows the user to be in complete control of their own independent TV volume without affecting the volume of any other viewers. This is the perfect gift for a keen film or series watcher.

 

American Girl doll

This is a great gift for little ones, and will help to normalise the idea of wearing hearing aids.  This incarnation of the American Girl Doll comes with her very own paid of hearing aids. Take your doll off to the doll hospital where she can have her new hearing aids fitted and your little ones get to play Audiologist.

 

Hearing aids

What better gift than the gift of improved hearing? Our wide range of fantastic hearing aids and accessories, featuring the most up to date Resound technology could make the ideal choice this Christmas.
