Skip Flowers, Perfume and Candy for Your Valentine With Asthma and Allergies

Melanie Carver ·
Flowers, candy, perfume and candles may be common gifts for Valentine’s Day. But if you give them to your loved ones with asthma and allergies, you may give them something you didn’t plan on – triggers that cause symptoms. Instead, give non-traditional asthma and allergy friendly gifts.

Great Valentine's Day Tips! 💖💘💓💌 Yes. Be thoughtful and have a healthy holiday! A book of poetry and a cozy blanket that is safe would be great! A nice mug and a box of herb tea. A sweater that is safe to wear. A pair of slippers is always nice and comforting! For folks that are home bound, how about an adult coloring book and some colored pencils? A nice picture frame that has a picture of you and your sweetie in it! Have a Happy Valentine's Day! 😍

I love those ideas, AAFA and Deb! There are so many cool (non-traditional) gift options out there that can be fun to celebrate and dont bother asthma/allergies: video games, board games, DVDs, or books also make great gifts.
