It happens every year. You count down the days until the tree goes up, the music is played, and the cookies are baked for Santa and his jolly team of reindeer. But before you can gleefully unwrap the gifts from your friends and loved ones, you have to set out to find the perfect gifts for them. But what should you buy for your Dad or your sweet little niece or that coworker who is always helping you on those big projects? Well, if they wear glasses, maybe we can help you check a few items off your shopping list.
From pragmatic to high tech to fun and just plain cool, here are ten gift ideas for the eyeglass wearers in your life.
1. “ReadeREST” Magnetic Eyewear Holder
This handy little contraption is one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?” items that answers a question commonly asked by every eyeglass wearer: Where are my glasses? After being featured on Shark Tank, this product’s popularity has soared and there’s no wondering why. The simple yet ingenious design allows you to hang your glasses on your pocket or shirt thus ensuring that your spectacles are always where you can find them. With multiple designs available, from the original stainless steel to sassy bejeweled options, there’s a ReadeREST for everyone.
2. Stylish Eyeglass Holders
Since clothing isn’t always the best place to keep your eyewear, it’s a nice idea to have a holder that can be placed on a desk or table while you’re working. Whether your loved one is a dog lover, a tech geek, or just super stylish and a little whimsical, chances are you can find an eyeglass holder that fits perfectly. From robots to puppies to noses, there’s an eyeglass holder for everyone on your Christmas list.
3. “Talk Nerdy to Me” T-shirt
Yes. We know that not all eyeglass wearers are nerds. We also know that not all nerds wear glasses. But we are equally certain that you know someone who proudly rocks his or her spectacles while taking in the midnight showing of the entire “Lord of the Rings” trilogy in celebration of J.R.R. Tolkien’s birthday. This shirt is for you… to give to them. They’ll love it.
