Fashion Fights Arthritis Gift Ideas AND a Cash Giveaway For Christmas
While talking to mom and Lesley one day, I had an idea about gift ideas for fashion fights arthritis. Just because our hands, fingers, arms and whatever don’t work the same doesn’t mean we don’t want to look nice. But we have to find the products that help us. And I thought a little humor might be needed for this post.

In addition, I am joining up with a group of women to offer you some fabulous gift cards that you can use for your Christmas shopping (or for you, no one will know!)
Gifts for Fashion Fights Arthritis
I had both Charlotte and Lesley help me with these ideas. My mom has struggled with arthritis for years and I’m sure many of us have limitations when it comes to some of the details on our jewelry.
And I’m sure there are many other items that would be helpful. If you have ideas, please share them with me too.
Necklaces with magnetic closures are much easier for arthritic fingers. In fact, at FierceCon, I met a woman who makes these kinds of necklaces. Her company is Katia’s Designs, and I showed how her necklaces not only are magnetic but also very versatile. I actually have 3 of her necklaces and they are fun to layer together which I’m showing below. And the thing is you can just as easily wrap these around your wrist to create a bracelet too!
While Katia’s designs are a little more expensive than the couple I showcased below, you are also supporting her business if you purchase from her. In fact, I just reached out to her and she said she will give you 10% off and free shipping until November 21, 2019.
Her website only has a couple of examples on it, but you can see more on her Instagram or Facebook. Then just message her and mention me (Jodie’s Touch of Style). She will even mix and match so you can ask for a certain color stone and different inspirational message other than the ones you see already put together.
Katia also has less expensive bracelets that incorporate the same uplifting messages. I don’t get anything from promoting her jewelry, except that I met her in person, and she’s an amazing woman.
Or how about long necklaces that you can just slide over your head? I just received one from Alison + Aubrey that would be perfect. I do receive a commission if you order from Alison + Aubrey as long as you go through my link.
As long as the necklace is long enough, you can just ignore the clasp on it.
Any bracelets that are magnetic or elastic would solve the problem of trying to get them clasped with arthritic fingers. Alison + Aubrey have quite a few bracelets like that. This is the one I have and love. But check around for others too.
Earring backings can be tough as part of fashion fights arthritis. There are two options that could be better. One is an earring cuff that has no closure and fits around the cartilage part of your ear. The other is the omega back earrings that simply flip closed.
Brooches or Pins
A magnetic brooch or pin would be very helpful for more than just decoration. Sure you can wear them as bling on almost anything, like we have shown in past blogs. We’ve shown them by our neck, on a pocket, and even on other accessories.
While you can use them as decoration, don’t forget they would work wonderfully to “tie” a scarf closed or even a cardigan.
Watches are another item that can be harder to get on and even to read the face. I love the idea of a cuff bracelet for your watch or a magnetic closure.
It can be hard to give rings as gifts because they are usually sized. Except the ones that aren’t. Those are my favorite even though I don’t have arthritis yet. Because then I can wear them on different fingers depending on the day.
And onto the giveaway, which is what I know you are all here for!! I hope you not only enter, but check out the other’s hosts blogs. Everyone appreciates your support.
