You put on your dress shoes for parties, your comfortable flats for shopping, your rubber boots for cleaning up the yard, or your slippers for baking up some goodies in the kitchen. So imagine if you had to have foot surgery during the holiday season. It very well could turn Christmas into a bah-humbug holiday – but it doesn’t have to. If you know someone recovering from foot surgery, below are some “gifts” you can give them to help with their recovery and still enjoy the holiday season.

10 Best Holiday “Gifts” For Someone Recovering From Foot Surgery

There are many activities you can do while recovering from foot surgery.  First off, get rid of the crutches and rent yourself a Knee Scooter.  The Knee Scooter is a lifesaving invention for those wanting to stay active and mobile while recovering from a foot injury or surgery.  In fact, you may be able to use this time of year to lean on your friends and family for help.  Most people reach out during the holidays to help those in need.  Whether it be the local food drive or caroling at the Nursing home, it's a time of year to help others. I have compiled a list of the top 10 things you can do for someone recovering from foot surgery/injury. If you think of something that's not on my list, leave me a comment and I'd be more than happy to add it.
