FIND THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR YOUR LOVED ONES

RNIB is here to help make your Christmas to-do list that little bit easier with our choice of top gifts

Finding the ideal gift for your partner, parents or friends can be quite a challenge. RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) is here to give you a few tips on the kind of gadgets, gizmos and goodies that make day to day life that much simpler.

The innovative PenFriend 2 Labeller is easy to use and can help with making audio labels for food, so that use-by-dates and cooking instructions can be played back when needed. You can also label clothes, medications, DVDs, and paperwork.

Our range of talking watches are available in a number of voices and designs to suit every style. With a click of the button the watch can guide you through the set-up procedure and let you know the time, date or set an alarm.


As the house is bustling with family and friends drink spillages are bound to happen! A non-spill mug has a suction base which can prevent any mishaps dampening the festive cheer and is a reliable cup for the less steady hand.

 

 

 

When you finally get round to having a quiet moment to yourself, you may want to get stuck into one of your new books.  An LED touch light will help you see text and objects more clearly, whether you’re reading, baking, building or sewing. The light is easily transportable, mains powered and can be plugged into a USB dock.

 

Visit RNIB’s online shop to see more of our range of fun and practical gadgets for people of all ages and needs.

Blind and partially sighted people who are having trouble setting up a new gadget they received for Christmas can also join one of RNIB’s free Online Today sessions.
