It’s officially that time of year again. We’ve made our grocery lists, the reservations or travel plans and now thoughts turn to gift ideas for everyone on our list.
Wondering how your dentist can help with gift ideas? Some of our suggestions lend themselves to better oral health and some are just for fun! Without further ado, here are our recommendations for YOUR “nice” list and maybe even something for that one person that has everything!
A little something for friends or co-workers
This is an easy one for the ladies. Every gal loves a new lipstick! Why not help her festively celebrate with a bright red shade? Be sure to get a hue with a blue vs. orange undertone. Orange-y red can make teeth appear dull and yellowed. A red gloss with a blue undertone will make teeth look whiter! It makes a great stocking stuffer for your sister or mother or aunt or stepmother or any significant lady in your life as well! MAC cosmetics' popular Russian Red is an outstanding option and a fabulous gift theat won't break the bank.
For that Someone Special
Give the gift of better oral health with a Sonicare Diamondclean toothbrush. Besides an unmatched clean, fresh feeling, you will reap many health benefits from the powerful sonic technology that reaches hard to clean surfaces in the mouth. This dentist-recommended tool removes up to seven times more plaque than a manual toothbrush and can give you a whiter smile in a week’s time. Just think—if you gift this to yourself or your loved one on Christmas, you will experience a whiter smile by the New Year! Additionally it can improve gum health in as little as two weeks. BONUS: Just in time for the holiday, Stanley Dentistry is offering a Sonicare special that rivals Amazon and Costco! Save up to $40, get exclusive extras like a whitening pen, extra brush head and whitening toothpaste. When purchased in our office, you can skip tax and shipping too!
A little something for yourself
If you are making plans to look your holiday best at the season's soirées, don’t forget the first thing most people notice! While hair, makeup and an amazing outfit may take center stage in your mind, the star of the show is really your smile! More than half of people surveyed state that the smile is the first thing they notice when meeting someone new. As the saying goes; you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. Brighten your entire look with a quick in-office procedure! Zoom! Whitening can instantly enhance your cheer and leave loved ones musing 'Something looks different... What could it be?' In addition to a fabulous smile upgrade, you will receive $100 off Zoom! whitening services in our Cary NC dental office through December 21.
The gift of your presence
Finally, there is nothing that can rival the gift of quality time. A recent LinkedIn article cites scientific evidence that experiences trump material gifts. Dr. Thomas Gilovich of Cornell University and other researchers have found that experiences—as fleeting as they may be—deliver more-lasting happiness than things. In the holiday hustle and bustle, it becomes easy to overlook precious moments of Joy. This year be intentional about enjoying time with friends. Make plans to grab one on one time or experience a meal with cherished friends and family this holiday season and relish the memory of time well spent for years to come. Just don't forget to brush and floss after your revelry!
