It may seem a bit niche (and okay…maybe it is) but we think the dentally-oriented folks in your life will be happy to receive any of these lovely toothy gifts come the 25th of December – from flavoured dental floss to molar-shaped candles, there’s something out there for everyone on your list!
For the plushy lover
It doesn’t get much cuter than these colourful mini tooth pillows! These little ones come with a tiny pocket for a tooth that’s just fallen out, helping the Tooth Fairy keep everything in order. And even when they aren’t keeping those loose teeth safe, they are cute and cuddly enough for the little ones in your life.
For the ironic friend
Talk about a sweet tooth! While you’d never want your natural teeth full of sugar and chocolate, a cookie jar in the shape of a giant glistening molar is a fun and quirky addition to the kitchen.
For the writer
This adorable notebook is perfect for those who a) love to jot down their notes throughout the day and b) are fans of tooth-related humour. A win-win situation, really.
For the one who always forgets to floss
A water flosser or oral irrigator is a great gadget for that person in your life who hates the stringy part of flossing. By using water pressure to dislodge bits of food and plaque from in between the teeth, it’s a great addition to anyone’s dental routine – and let’s face it, it’s a bit more fun than the regular way, too!
For the oral hygiene completist
Have you heard of tongue scrapers? They are rather unusual little plastic tools that clean the bacterial build up, dead cells and food debris from the surface of the tongue. These are the bits that cause many common oral health issues, including bad breath. Make sure you’re not insulting the recipient of your gift with this one…
For the traditionalist
You can’t go wrong with an electric toothbrush. While there are lots of different views as to whether an electric toothbrush is better than a manual one, there’s no denying that the ease at which an electric toothbrush works with your own movements to get rid of greater amounts of plaque is useful. Not to mention the fact that a toothbrush should be changed every 3-4 months, so chances are the gift receiver in your life will need a new toothbrush near the holidays anyway!
For everyone else
If you find yourself near our practice here in Central London, you could always look to one of the oldest pharmacies in the UK, John Bell & Croyden. Besides being one of the oldest, it’s also one of the biggest – surely you’ll be able to find something lovely within!
