The Magic Weighted Blanket  

Mighty Well | Holiday Gift Guide | Magic Weighted Blanket

We live each day filled with stress, anxiety and tension, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There’s something about being hugged that makes everyone feel great. Hugging releases natural chemicals in your brain such as serotonin and dopamine, which promote recovery. And you can get that hugging sensation anytime, with the Magic Weighted Blanket.

The Magic Blanket is the blanket that hugs you back, designed and weighted with poly pellets, inducing a proprioceptive input in our bodies.

This releases the neurotransmitters into our system, resulting in a calming effect that is great for people who are suffering through a variety of maladies, or living with treatments that make life harder that it needs to be.

The blankets come in chenille, minky, cotton, flannel or fleece, giving the softest of hugs as the blanket molds and conforms to your body. The weighted pellets inside provide just the right amount of pressure to envelope you and keep you feeling safe and secure, and it also comes in a lite version for those that need a lighter touch. It’s all made in the USA since 1998.

We’ve partnered with Magic Blanket for the holidays!  If you mention code “holidays20” you can get 20% when buying 2 or more blankets.

Passion Planner 

Everyone faces anxiety and fears, but it’s easier to cope when you have a way to simplify your life and organize everything, so you can focus on what really matters. Passion Planner does just that. The planner was designed by a student who wanted a way for dreamers, planners and achievers to reach their goals, while helping others reach theirs. The Passion Planner is a Get One, Give One movement, where each planner purchased allows the company to give another planner to someone in need.

How the Passion Planner is Organized

  • The planner starts with goal mapping through the Passion Roadmap, making sure you start with the end in mind.
  • After that, it provides ample space for breaking down your goals and your day, helping you break down tasks to each individual step you need to accomplish your objective.
  • The monthly layout helps keep an eye on the bigger picture, with weekly layouts to plan out your week.

The Passion Planner is more than just a planner, it’s a way to feel gratitude and make a difference in other people’s lives. It’s the perfect gift for someone who wants to give back to the community.

It’s the kind of item that you can wear anywhere, and has deep reinforced pockets that can easily and discreetly store personal belongings and medical supplies.

Mighty MedPlanner 

Keeping things organized is important, and especially so when keeping medications and treatments in order. The Mighty MedPlanner keeps all medical supplies neatly arranged in a discreet way, making sure you always have all your essential medical supplies on hand. It all folds up into a compact nylon shell that looks no different from a cosmetics or gadget organizer, disappearing into the background without drawing attention.

There’s a wealth of functionality here: there are enough elastic grids to hold supplies like EpiPens, inhalers, and syringes, with a pocket with an elastic hem for additional supplies like an ice pack. A binder ring system holds writeable sleeves which you can label with a dry-erase marker, making organization a breeze, and it is perfect keeping the schedule of pills and medications effortless. The loops are easy to open and designed for people who may have hand mobility issues.

The MedPlanner is a perfect gift for anyone who needs the convenience and functionality to organize their daily activities.
