With the holiday season upon us, many people in the Dearborn and Brownstown communities are trying to think of gifts for a spouse, loved one, or friend. If you’re picking out a gift for a white elephant party, it’s not too hard, but if you’re trying to think of something meaningful, memorable, and thoughtful for a very special person, it can be difficult to pick out the right gift.

If you have a loved one who is suffering from varicose veins or spider veins, one special gift that they will be sure to love is the gift of vein treatment, and once they see the transformation that can happen with these treatments, they will also feel awesome and remember you with positive thoughts every time they think about how their veins used to look.

However, with a gift like this, it’s important to realize that there are some potential pitfalls that could easily derail what was meant to be a thoughtful and meaningful gift. In order to make sure that you don’t inadvertently have a person misunderstand or misinterpret your gift, here are some of our tips for giving the gift of vein treatment.

  1. Make sure your loved one wants vein treatment. If a person has never thought about getting vein treatment, then it can take a little while to get accustomed to the idea. If you spring the gift on someone before they’re ready, they might take a little longer to warm up to the idea than you thought. Try to plant the idea in their head by bringing it up in a roundabout way. For instance, casually bring it up in conversation, maybe by mentioning a celebrity who has recently undergone varicose vein treatment. See how the person reacts, and ask a couple of open-ended follow-up questions to find out their thoughts on the idea. Keep it all light, casual, and non-judgmental so that they won’t ever guess that you’re planning on giving them such a massive gift.
  2. Make sure your loved one isn’t afraid of vein treatment. Some people have fears, doubts, and anxieties surrounding any kind of medical treatment, wondering if it will hurt and if the benefit is worth the cost. Be very reassuring, confident, and calming if your loved one expresses any fears about vein treatment. Read a little bit about varicose vein treatment and spider vein treatment to get familiar with some of the facts in case your loved one expresses a concern.
  3. Don’t imply that the person isn’t currently beautiful just as they are. This is a fine line to walk, and the last thing you would want is for your loved one to retort, “Oh, so you’re trying to say I’m ugly or something?” Be sure to avoid creating any relationship between the person’s intrinsic worth and their outward appearance in order to steer clear of this pitfall. You can also try sharing some of our tips from our article, “When to Treat Varicose Veins,” in order to let a person see that vein treatment is not about vanity or people thinking less of them.
  4. Wrap your gift in a creative way. There’s just something intangibly wonderful about getting a large, heavy present under the tree. When you’re giving someone a note saying, “This is what my gift to you will be,” the look and feel of the present can go a long way towards enhancing its value in the eyes of the receiver. Try creative ideas like a present within a present, a treasure hunt, or some extra-glittery wrapping paper and a fabulous bow on a small, flat package.
