2. Essential oils

Arthritis sufferers experience pain, fatigue, and in some cases, anxiety. Essential oils are a natural way of finding relief from these symptoms.

Whether they use a diffuser or simply apply it to the skin, there are a range of different essential oils for arthritis and joint pain. Plus, this is an easy on-the-go form of self-care.

Some of the best scents for arthritis are jasmine, lavender, and peppermint (a festive choice for the holidays).

3. Lotions and creams

Lotions and creams designed for arthritis pain can be very effective. They typically include ingredients like menthol and camphor to provide pain relief.

Popular brands include Bengay and Icy Hot. While the relief may be short-term, these creams are generally considered a safe and effective form of arthritis treatment.

Give the gift of knowledge with a book about arthritis — and don’t be afraid to think out of the box! Perhaps they would enjoy a cookbook with recipes that help reduce inflammation. There are even books that cover the best yoga and physical therapy exercises for arthritis.

Acts of service are often the best gifts. Create your own booklet of gift certificates that are good for different jobs around the house.

Make a donation to a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing resources to those with arthritis.
