Alternative Gift Ideas for Christmas

by Holly Bramwell on November 22, 2019

 It's difficult to come up with ideas for Christmas presents at the best of times, but when you need to go that step further and consider a child or young adults needs due to their learning difficulties, it can feel like a minefield!

Here are just a few ideas from some Special Needs businesses who understand - which will help when it comes to buying gifts for those with Special Needs..

 

Tubieego

Tubieego offer an amazing adaptation service which means almost any bag can become a Tube Feeding bag. Just send Tubieego your bag and it will be adapted for Tube Feeding including a Tubiee Go Insert which is compatible with Abbott, Nutricia and Fresenius feed systems and types. 

They also provide a wide range of colourful backpacks to suit Abbott, Nutricia and Fresenius users, from Llamas to Dinosaurs to adult bags!

Take a look at the website for more information and to buy online: www.tubieego.com 

Tubie Kids

At Tubie Kids they understand the difficulties faced with dressing a tube fed child with suitable, adaptive clothing. That's why they created the Tubie Kids 2in1 combo (bodysuit and t-shirt in one), making feeding and changing a lot easier for parents and carers. The product has grown since, including Emergency Seat Belt Pads and Harnesses, Hoodies and Pouches to keep all those Tube Feeding Bits & Bobs together!

Visit the website now for more information and to buy online: www.tubiekids.co.uk
