Luxury Gifts for People With IBD

Updated December 04, 2013

People with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have to endure a lot -- diarrhea, aches, pains, doctors poking around in not-so-pleasant places. There should be some sort of compensation for enduring these hardships and others. These luxury items may help make the miseries of IBD a little more bearable.

Most people with IBD have recurrent diarrhea, and that can irritate the skin, making a bidet quite comforting. This toilet/bidet has a built-in seat with a rimless design for easy cleaning. In addition, a remote control offers seat and water temperature control.

Everyone has aches and pains, but people who have IBD certainly have more than their fair share. Arthritis is common in people with IBD, affecting about 25% of patients. A massage chair can help soothe related aches and pains, although you can also consider a year's worth of massage services, too.

The massage chair is great, but for those aching joints, some hot tub therapy could feel really great. The relaxed feeling you get from a bit of time in the hot tub really lasts. And the best thing about a hot tub? If you give it as a gift, you might be invited to hop in, too.

The most affordable luxury item on this list is one that is also the most versatile. IBDers tend to spend a lot of time at home due to their symptoms and the fatigue that's often difficult to overcome. With a beautiful and functional game table, you don't need to go out to the party -- the party will come to you. There are several tables to choose from at various price points.
