A selection of quirky gifts to give people with arthritis
Here at Arthritis Digest we love Droyt, a Lancashire company that has been making soaps in England for almost 100 years. The master soap makers use only the best quality vegetable or mineral ingredients to make soaps that look gorgeous and feel sensational. The Introductory Soap & Liquid Box (pictured) contains the company’s best sellers and is £15 (ex p+p).

A dual-purpose product that incorporates the support of a grab rail with the style and subtlety of a decorative plant feature, the Plant Pot Grab Rail (£54 ex p+p) is made from stainless steel, and is an example of British design at its best.

Shake up the way you clean your home
Take convenience to a new level with a robot vacuum. The iRobot Roomba i7 automatically empties into an enclosed bag that holds 30 robot bins, so you don’t have to think about vacuuming for weeks at a time. Different floor surfaces can be taken on with this clever robot (£799.99), who will learn, map and adapt to your home’s layout.

A smart yet discreet vibrating watch, the Pivotell Vibratime has 10 alarms to remind wearers when their medication is due. Supplied in black with the choice of bright colours for an optional extra strap, the handy gadget (£25 ex VAT) is rechargeable, and the USB is provided.
