What are the Best Gifts for the Glasses Wearers?

Posted on Dec 19, 2022

With the holiday season in full swing, you may be looking for unique and thoughtful ideas for gifts for the many glasses wearers in your life. For most of these individuals, wearing glasses is an essential part of their daily routine and a thoughtful and practical gift will be most appreciated! We have gathered a few of our favorite recommendations for the best gifts for all the bespectacled folks on your list this year!


Gifts that Help Care for Glasses

Taking good care of glasses is the key to making sure that the glasses last a long time and provide a great vision for as long as possible.

There are many different things that go into caring for glasses including cleaning, storing, and repairing the frames and lenses.

A top gift in this category is a bottle of lens cleaner with a lint-free cleaning cloth for their lenses. These lens cloths can be personalized and come in a variety of colors and patterns.

Anyone who wears glasses daily knows the struggle of having to use the bottom of a shirt in place of an appropriate lens cloth and will certainly appreciate this gift.

If the person on your list is always losing or damaging their glasses by laying them all over the house, then a quality glasses case or other storage option may be just the right gift! Everyone should have a glasses case that they can store their glasses in whenever the glasses are not being worn.

Having a quality case can prevent scratches and damage from storing the glasses improperly.

Does your gift recipient frequently have crooked or broken frames? If so, a glasses repair kit could prove to be the perfect present.

In a repair kit, a small eyeglass-size screwdriver, temple screws, and small pliers can enable your giftee to make many minor adjustments that may make a big difference in how their glasses fit!

Gifts that Provide a Fashion Statement

Glasses may be more than just a tool for clear vision, glasses can be a fashion accessory!

If the individual on your list is a regular fashionista, then gifts that can act as a fashion statement may be the right option.

A new pair of prescription sunglasses may give the perfect alternative to their typical daily wearing of spectacles. Even a new frame can offer a whole new look!

Is wearing glasses a part of your gift recipient’s fashion sense and identity? Perhaps a nice pair of socks with a fun glasses print or a tie bar in the shape of frames would bring the whole thing together!

There are countless ideas of gifts that incorporate glasses and frames into other items including necklaces, shirts, and earrings.

Gifts that Give the Gift of Sight

For any glasses wearer, the most important aspect of any glasses is that they provide clear, comfortable vision.

Help out those on your list by giving a truly valuable gift – the gift of great eyesight!

A new pair of glasses or a gift certificate to an optical will allow anyone on your list to have the option to choose from a variety of new frames and get an updated pair of glasses!
