Oral Hygiene Conscious Christmas Gifts Ideas from Bondi Dental You may have been racking your brain about what to get a special someone (or two) on your seasonal gift list and may be close to giving up.

They either have everything, don’t want more “stuff” or are somewhere in between.

What better way to ring it in than with a few gifts that are aesthetically pleasing as they are healthy.

Yes, these gifts are cool enough for stocking stuffers or Secret Santa because everyone could use something beautiful and best of all — you can guarantee each of them will be used daily.

At Bondi Dental, we offer the following suggestions for cool, thoughtful, and useful dental gifts for this gift-giving season!

Gifts for everyone!

Electric toothbrushes are great for all ages. Practising oral hygiene should be fun, exciting, and as simple as possible. Surprise your friends or loved ones by giving them an electric toothbrush.

Electric toothbrushes are effective, easy to use, and typically include cool features like built-in timers. Electric toothbrushes are a great gift for the very young and very old whose control of a manual toothbrush might not be complete.

Tooth whitening. A unique gift, teeth whitening is the gift that keeps on giving. Take-home whitening kits at Bondi Dental are inexpensive and only require one visit to our office. In-chair whitening is also available!

Toothpaste tube wringer. A perfect gift for the more economy minded people on your gift list, a toothpaste tube wringer is the best way to make sure that all the toothpaste is forced out of a tube. It’s a great way to avoid waste and save money.

Toothbrush timer. These small TWO MINUTE (recommended tooth brushing time) timers are perfect if you don’t have an electric toothbrush that alerts you when your two minutes is up.

Fresh breath. It’s not an easy thing to say, but sometimes you have to let the people you care about know that their breath isn’t smelling so fresh. It’s not easy to hear, but it’s needed advice. And one way to do it gently and with care is to offer them mints, breath strips and mouthwash during the holidays.

Sugar-free gum. Do you know someone with a sweet tooth? Get them a gift of sweet sugar-free gum. It’s a safer alternative to the sweet treats that eventually cause cavities. Sugar-free gum also increases the production of saliva, which is one of the tools your mouth uses to keep itself clean and healthy!

Just remember that even if you use the very best oral hygiene products on the market, you still need to be seeing us at Bondi Dental on a regular basis. You’ll probably be eating a lot of food throughout the holiday, so when you’re ready for that much-needed check-up, contact us at Bondi Dental and we’ll get you started for the New Year!

Stocking stuffers

Fill children’s stocking with happy and healthy dental toys.

  • A new toothbrush featuring a favourite character
  • Mint-flavoured dental floss.
  • Watermelon-flavoured toothpaste.
  • A brightly coloured toothbrush case for use on sleepovers or vacation.

For college students or adults a perfect stocking stuffer is an inexpensive spin toothbrush. A spin toothbrush is a good alternative to the more expensive sonic electronic toothbrush for recipients in a college dorm or other limited spaces. A spin brush is also a great gift for people who spend a lot of time at work because everyone needs to brush multiple times a day. You might also include dental floss and a tongue scraper to build a complete package.

Give yourself the gift of serenity

Does the holiday season bring you more stress than cheer? Here are four tips on shopping for your family and friends this year designed to help keep your year merry and bright.

Shop in off-peak hours. Most stores aren’t jam-packed in the early morning or late at night. Shop at slow times, and you can avoid the crowds and long lines.

Take a list that includes your budget. Start your holiday list early in the season and take your checklist with you when you shop. Your list should include the amount you want to spend on that gift or person.

Buy extra gifts Find some general interest items on sale that can be for a man or woman and purchase a couple of extras in case someone unexpectedly gives you a gift.

Reward yourself. Treat yourself to a special meal, or buy a small token for a job well-done. You deserve it.
