The Ultimate Spoonie Shopping Guide
Whether you’re coming to this list as a spoonie, a spoonie supporter, a lifter, fitness enthusiast or someone looking for some ideas for any of the above, I hope you find some awesome stuff! This is all some of my favorite stuff and all things that I use, love and have gifted to others because I love these things so much! So happy shopping!! I’m also a big user of Amazon Prime – from subscription services to family gifting lists to entertainment so I’m always a big proponent of the gift of Prime!
Gifts to keep your spoonie cozy:
A heated fleece wrap.
This wrap is amazing. It’s smaller than a blanket so less bulk, and definitely easier than trying to get a square plastic heating pad to contour to your body. It’s definitely something nice to snuggle up on the sofa with while sipping your coffee in the morning.
A contoured sleep mask.
I LOVE this mask. I actually buy three at a time, because my toddler got sick on mine and I honestly cried about it. So now I always have back up! I had no idea how much a good sleep mask could help me improve my sleep. Blacking out every little bit of light is a game changer, and this mask is comfortable enough to forget about on your face.
A heated matress pad.
This pad is adjustable on two sides, so I can keep my joints nice and warm to help me sleep while my husband who is always hot can keep his side cool. It’s comfortable to sleep on and the heat comes very evenly, so you don’t ever feel like it’s getting hot spots.
If I could get away with wearing these PJ’s to work, I totally would. Okay, not gonna lie…I definitely work from home in these all the time…I just don’t think they’d fly in our office! Leveret PJ’s are super cozy and have lots of fun patterns. They make them in so many sizes, too! My toddler has been wearing them since she was a newborn and we are even hella cute in a few of our matching pair!
A Pregnancy Pillow.
My rheumatologist recommended this pillow to me years before I was pregnant and it was a total game changer. You can move it to help you comfort and elevate like, every part of your body! Mine lasted years until I actually got pregnant and by the end of my pregnancy I’d pretty much worn down the middle to nothing, but it went a good 3.5 years before I needed to replace it. The one I currently have is 3 years old and still going strong!
Super Cute “toastie” hand warmers!
I suffer from Reynauds and it gets nearly unbearable in the winter months. These little guys keep me agile enough in my fingers to type for work and for leisure, and keep my hands from being in more pain than necessary. And they’re cute as hell!
Gifts to give your spoonie relief:
Indulgent Body Moisturizer.
I’ve spent thousands trying to find a moisturizer that does everything I need only to find the perfect bottle costs less than $15! The scent is divine but not overbearing (it doesn’t trigger my migraines so SCORE!) and it really goes deep into your skin and feels incredible after an Epsom bath!
Eucalyptus Essential Oil.
I SWEAR I’M NOT SELLING YOU PSEUDOSCIENCE AND WOO! I will say that I am all about science and clinical studies, but I also know that when my immune system is fighting a cold, nothing helps me breathe like throwing some of this into my humidifier. I will not claim any sort of cures, but I will say it gives me a lot of relief in the winter months.
