The Ultimate IBD Holiday Gift Guide

Heating Pad

IBD often causes abdominal pain that can even radiate to the back, making it uncomfortable to rest and sleep. A great heating pad can be a perfect solution! Try a heating pad applied to the abdomen next time you are feeling crampy. 

Travel Bag

Another favorite travel essential is a small travel bag to house medications in. This bag has a nifty ice pack to keep things cool too. We always recommend meds be taken with you in your carry-on while traveling and these handy bags make that easy to do. 

IV Hoodie 

The new BeWell hoodies are perfect for staying cozy on infusion or lab draw days. We love that this company is founded by a fellow IBD warrior that has to navigate the same challenges you do. Grab a hoodie or two and check out the rest of their awesome, IBD-friendly products! 

Toiletry Kit

 This Carhartt toiletry kit is an awesome addition to your IBD travel essentials. A little bag like this can be so helpful in keeping toiletries in one place so they can quickly be thrown in a larger bag for on-the-go needs. For even more personalization, have it embroidered with an initial or name!
