Time for another gift guide! This time I am going back to my roots; a gift guide for your spoonie friends. A “spoonie” is someone who identifies them from The Spoon Theory; typically someone with a chronic illness.

We just love this tshirt! “Sick and Surviving” is what we’re all doing right? People tend to say people are battling chronic illness, but what can you battle if it’s a chronic one? We survive and we adapt. But then that doesn’t mean we should have to. I love this shirt and its meaning! And made by a small business, which everyone should support!
This is something that could just come as one present and bam did! How about a gift hamper? This is a herbal chronic illness (Cancer) gift set, which can be good for them self care days! It’s pretty, affordable for hand made and would be a great supportive gift! (They have all various kinds for different illnesses too!)
If you’re a spoonie, you’ll know we measure our daily activities by “spoons”. Well, why not a mug of spoons? Of course, this is metaphorical. I love this one especially! It’s very simple and I think in the winter a nice cup of tea when having a low spoon day!
Dorkface is a blogger I’ve followed for the longest time and I even have some of her products hanging in my house! But to be “spoonie” specific; she has some really cute prints such as the one above reading “Look After Yourself” that you can situate around your room to help with some positive affirmation. I would never say these can make you think different or “cure” you of your evil thoughts but it can make your day a little bit brighter in the moment and remind you to put yourself first today.
And as we’ll be in the depths of Winter by Christmas a nice blanket does not go a miss. Of course, this would be a lovely gift for anyone but when you have a lowered immune system; your body thermostat is a little off. A blanket is the perfect gift and adding a personalised touch makes it even more special!
