Happy holidays from Helotes Family Dentistry! What’s a better gift to give to your loved ones than the gift of good health? Here are some of our favorite dental-themed stocking stuffer ideas for healthier smiles during the holidays!

Toothpastes of Different Flavors

Why settle for the same mint-flavored toothpaste? Help your loved ones ring in the new year with some bold new flavors of toothpastes that they might not have tried before! Many come in small travel sizes. Kids love flavored toothpaste with their favorite characters on the tube.

Tooth Brushing Timer

Want a fun way to be sure everyone in the family is brushing for the recommended two minutes? There are quite a few creative toothbrush timers on the market that would be excellent stocking stuffers for both adults and kids.

Dental Travel-Hygiene Kits

Mini toothpastes, toothbrushes, mouthwash, and floss kits are perfect for anyone that you know who is traveling this holiday season! They are also great for anyone who spends much time away from home. It’s nice to be able to freshen up your mouth during the day. Packable care kits are especially appreciated by individuals who wear braces. A small mirror, some wax, and floss picks are good additions to the previously listed dental supplies.

Floss Picks

Flossing is important, but we know not everyone does it! Don’t let your loved ones end up on their dentists’ naughty lists. Give them easy-to-use floss picks!

Electric Toothbrushes & Themed Toothbrushes

This might be a bit of a splurge, but once you switch to an electric toothbrush, it’s amazing how much your dental health can instantly improve. There are plenty of affordable electric toothbrushes on the market if you’re worried about cost! Themed toothbrushes are available in an amazing variety ranging from animals to superheroes. You can also find toothbrushes that are personalized with the recipient’s name.

Whitening Products

A bright, white smile is on everyone’s wish list! Although they aren’t nearly as effective as the treatments offered by a dentist, whitening toothpastes, strips, and over the counter kits are good stocking stuffer items. Even better, arrange for one of the in-office or take-home whitening options that we offer right here at Helotes Family Dentistry! Slip a note into the stocking of your loved one with the date of the treatment.

Healthy Snacks

Candy canes aren’t the only good edible stocking stuffers! Protein-packed nuts, dark chocolate, and sugar-free gums are great alternatives to the sweet stuff.
