Give a gift that keeps on giving this Christmas

Whether you have friends or family with little ones, or know someone who is expecting a baby this Christmas, give a gift with a difference this year with Vicks® and Braun.

Give the gift of better breathing and a good night’s sleep this winter with the Vicks SweetDreams Cool Mist Humidifier with Image Projection

Receiving Gold in the Best Innovative Gift over £50 at this year’s Loved by Parents Awards, the humidifier features ultrasonic technology to produce an ultra-fine visible mist, which helps to bring relief when little ones are suffering from congestion and/or a chesty cough.

Humidification can help to maintain moisture levels between 40-60%, reducing the survival of flu viruses on surfaces and in the air, while easing the discomfort of a child by soothing dry noses, throats, eyes and skin discomforts.

With its in-built projection system, it also creates a magical bedtime environment for children. You can manually select one of three Dream Themes – Safari, Sea and Starry Night. Each of the three themes has three images that automatically rotate to soothe and calm little ones as they drift off to sleep. The SweetDreams humidifier works with the Vicks VapoPads® scented pads with essential oils. Available in menthol (recommended as of 3 years and up) or rosemary & lavender (recommended as of 3 months and up)), each pad provides up to eight hours of soothing vapors.  For further information visit

With so many different thermometers to choose from selecting the right thermometer to give as a gift can be difficult, so let us lend a helping hand. If it’s an in ear thermometer with cutting edge technology you’re after, the ThermoScan® 7 with Age Precision ticks all the boxes. It allows parents old and new the ability to set the age of their little ones (0-3 months, 3-36 months and 36 months to adults) for an accurate temperature interpretation.

Many parents are unaware the definition of fever changes with age – so what is an acceptable temperature for a four year old can be classed as a high fever in a newborn. The colour-coded display allows you to easily interpret the results, displaying green for a normal temperature, yellow for elevated and red for a high temperature.  If you’d like to find out more about the ThermoScan® 7 you can do so here:

Or why not consider the Braun No Touch + Forehead thermometer. What makes this thermometer stand out is that it has two modes, offering breakthrough technology. You can place it directly on a child’s forehead in ‘touch’ mode or hold it up to 5cm away in ‘no touch’ mode, ideal for measuring a child’s temperature throughout the night, without disturbing them from their sleep.

The ‘no touch’ function helps to limit the risk of spreading germs and eliminates the possibility of cross contamination amongst family members. The simple colour indicator also makes interpreting the results simple. You can find out more about the No Touch + Forehead thermometer by reading our dedicated article here:

So, if you’re struggling for gift ideas this Christmas, put the usual baby grows and cuddly toys down, and give a gift that keeps on giving.
