Frugal Gifts for Kids With Allergies
Posted on Monday, December 9th, 2013 at 7:00 am
Buying gifts for kids who have allergies can be difficult. You definitely don’t want to make a mistake and give a child something that he or she is allergic to. Here is a short list of some allergy friendly (and frugal) gifts for kids who have allergies.
Allergy-Friendly Gifts for Kids
Allergy-free Candy Canes
You’ll find several different kinds of holiday candy that is “8-allergens free” on Amazon. That means the candy does not contain any milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy, or wheat. It is a great place to get allergy friendly candy canes. Try these Sweet Nature Candy Canes.
Cute Epi-Pen Carriers
It isn’t always easy to convince a child to carry his or her Epi-Pen wherever they go. Kids don’t carry purses, and the pockets in their clothing are just too small to hold one. Check out these really cute carriers for either an Epi-Pen or an Auvi-Q. Most of them clip onto a belt loop or backpack. Prices range between a little under $10.00 to around $15.00.
Food Allergy Music
There is an artist by the name of Kyle Dine who has more than one CD of songs about food allergies. All his music is designed for kids. The songs are fun, and uplifting, and can be enjoyed by both children and adults.
Gluten free Play Dough
The play dough that is made by Crayola (and other companies) contains wheat. This could be problematic for kids who have celiac disease or an allergy or intolerance for gluten. Young children tend to want to taste the play dough. Try these great gluten-free options!
