Holiday Gifts for the Visually Impaired and Others

Many have asked me from time to time what the best gifts are for those that are blind or visually impaired and while I have a few suggestions, I think you will find that at the top of the list we all have the same favorites.


1. Pocket money brailler

A great gift for the blind or vision impaired is a pocket money brailler, that can mark bills from $1 to $100. It is small and compact and can be clipped to a keychain or slipped into a pocket. Average cost is around $7.

2. Hand-held braille labeler

Another nifty gift for around $25 is a hand-held braille labeler. Although the cost is around $25 it is a million-dollar life saver for the visually impaired.

6. Video magnifier

On the higher end of the scale are video magnifiers. These can help with everyday needs from reading the mail, pill bottles, menus to reading an entire book. There are several available on today's market and the prices ranges from around $200 to over $1000. These have so many capabilities from the hand-held to the stationery.

9. Gift card

Gift cards to a favorite restaurant or store make a great gift and that gift becomes even more special when the giver shares the dining or shopping experience with them.
