With the holidays quickly approaching, you may be wondering what to include in those colorful stockings hanging above the fireplace. Candy canes, chocolate bars, and other sweets tend to be the most popular options these days when it comes to stocking stuffers, as do things like gift cards, small toys, and cool gadgets. But what about gifts that are smile-friendly? Here are a few creative gift ideas from your trusted dentist that your whole family will love!

1. An Electric Toothbrush

Everyone loves getting a neat new gadget or gizmo in their stocking, so why not hook your loved one up with a brand-new electric toothbrush? At first glance, a toothbrush might not be the most exciting gift in the world, but these items have completely unmatched benefits. They’re proven to clean teeth more effectively than their traditional counterparts, and they also come in all sorts of cool colors and designs—some even play music or connect with smartphones to track your brushing habits! Needless to say, this gift is fun in its own way; and it’s certain to enhance your loved one’s oral hygiene habits.

2. Fun & Exciting Dental Products

There are all sorts of other dental hygiene products that have their usefulness, while also being small enough to fit inside of a stocking! A new tube of flavored toothpaste might be exactly what your loved one needs to make brushing feel like less of a chore. Dental flossers or a water flosser can ensure that your loved one is flossing often enough; Gum-chucks are a particularly popular variety that kids love. If you have younger children still learning the oral hygiene ropes, you could also get them a tooth timer or dental-themed toys and books that help instill in them the value of oral hygiene!

3. Sugar-Free Sweets & Treats

Let’s face it; it would be disappointing to go the entire holiday season without receiving anything sweet and delicious—but don’t fret! Sugar-free varieties of all kinds of candies exist these days, no matter what your cravings or preferences are. Sugarless chewing gum, dark chocolate, and other sugar-free options like nuts, fruits, and vegetables might not always seem as festive, but they’re infinitely better for your teeth and gums than traditional options like candy canes, milk chocolate, pies, pastries, eggnog, and more.

4. A Refillable Water Bottle

Water is by far and away the absolute best beverage for one’s oral health, and there’s no better way to ensure that your loved one is drinking enough water than by getting them a refillable water bottle. Drinking water encourages the natural flow of saliva inside your mouth, which is integral in the fight against tooth decay and cavities. Water bottles come in all sorts of colors, themes, and varieties, meaning that there’s one out there that every member of your family is certain to love and use often!
