When it comes to the holidays, Gifts of Comfort from Hammacher Schlemmer always find their way to the top of our wish list. It’s not everyday that one can splurge on goodies that help you achieve maximum relaxation all year round. From massages to manicures, having these done right in the comfort of your own home is one of the best gifts imaginable!
The Personal Oxygen Bar is modeled after oxygen bars found in resorts and spas. Available only from Hammacher Schlemmer, retail $399.95 this is one gift they won’t forget for days, months, years to come.
This personal oxygen bar that increases the concentration of oxygen you breathe by 43% (from 21% to 30%), helping you to achieve a sense of calm to facilitate relaxation. A compressor draws in ambient air and first passes it through two removable, washable filters that remove larger dust particles and impurities. A membrane then isolates oxygen, increasing its total concentration. The concentrated oxygen is then pumped through a tube to a headset—worn either over the head or around the neck—where it gently exits an adjustable outlet near the mouth, allowing you to recline, lie supine, or sit in your favorite comfortable chair as you inhale.
It has easy-to-use push button controls that allow you to enjoy 10- to 30-minute sessions, and its built-in speaker plays up to four different ethereal musical patterns to accompany inhalation. After each session, it will automatically purge itself of excess water vapor and heat from the compressor before shutting itself down.
The Plantar Fascia Heated Foot Massager is available only from Hammacher Schlemmer, retail $149.95 and makes on of our top gift of comfort list this holiday season. This heated foot massager helps ease the pain of plantar fasciitis with a pair of 2″ diameter rolling Shiatsu-style nodes. Simply place your feet on the device and slide them back and forth, applying the preferred amount of pressure along the arch of the foot and stimulating the plantar fascia.
In addition, 46 mini-nodes target pressure points on the bottom of the feet and provide relief with a vibration massage. Its infrared heating can be used independently or simultaneously with the vibration massage and produces 120° F of warmth that helps increase circulation. Complete with a foot-activated control panel enables one to manage the unit’s massage speed and heating function and an integrated handle easy portability.
The Hand Reflexology Massager applies gentle, soothing massage to both the top and bottom of the hand. Making it an idea gift of comfort to consider this holiday season. Available from Hammacher Schlemmer, retail $129.95.
Similar to hand reflexology, it compresses trigger points on the palm and back of hand using a mechanical air pressure system that kneads the hand for a comfortable, spa-like massage. This helps relieve pain and discomfort in the hands of most users. Its soothing rhythm helps to relieve the tension, stress, and fatigue associated with extended keyboard and mouse usage. After a hand is inserted into the device’s soft polyester interior, a push of a button begins your chosen session at one of four pressure levels. You can also use the infrared heat selection during sessions to promote better circulation.
For the man in your life, The Heated Shaving Lather Dispenser is a perfect gift of comfort they will love from the first moment of use and beyond. Available from Hammacher Schlemmer, retail $39.95.
This heated lather machine dispenses a warm shaving cream or gel to enable a closer, more comfortable shave. The device heats shaving cream or gel in 1 1/2 minutes, producing a barbershop-worthy, soothing lather that opens pores and softens and raises whiskers so they are easier to cut. A dial adjusts the temperature of the lather and an indicator light illuminates when the preferred temperature has been achieved. The unit accommodates most canisters up to 2 1/2″-wide and stores unobtrusively on a countertop or inside a toiletry kit.
