holiday-stockings-1If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for someone in your life who has or appreciates Cochlear Implants, look no further. Here are 5 presents that would make perfect stocking stuffers, so you can check one more thing off your holiday shopping list:

1. Kaci the Koala and Vibe the Moose
The Cochlear® and Baha® mascots have never looked cuter—and they would look especially adorable peeking out of the top of a stocking. Plus, Kaci sports a Cochlear Implant sound processor and Vibe wears bilateral Baha sound processors.  So cute!





2. Sling bag, lunch box, and Cochlear water bottle
Perfect for school, work, or trips to the park, the Cochlear Store features an array of useful everyday items that will display your Cochlear pride. They would also make great stocking stuffers, or components of a larger present.

3. “The Sounds from Silence: Graeme Clark and the Bionic Ear Story”

“The Sounds from Silence” is a novel written by Graeme Clark, the original developer of the multi-channel cochlear implant, about how he conceived and directed research and how Cochlear took it up to give so many people the chance to hear.
It tells of how the profoundly deaf and their families cope with the silence of deafness and of their joy in being given the gift of hearing. What could make a better gift for the holidays than a copy of his amazing story?

4. Watertight case with foam padded insert
When it comes to storing and maintaining your processor to keep it working properly, a watertight case is essential. Especially if you’ll be around water, snow, humidity or unpredictable weather, you’ll want to make sure your processor is protected from the elements. A backup case can never hurt, either!






5. Vibrating alarm clocks
Getting out of bed in the morning can be hard for anyone, but it’s particularly challenging for those who may not hear an audible alarm. The vibrating alarm clock is a great solution. Plus it comes in three designs, so you can pick the one that fits your loved one’s style.
