32oz Motivational Water Bottle with Time Marker

People with POTS need to drink a ton of water every day. A TON. Help them get their daily fluid intake with a large reusable water bottle that has fun reminders to drink on them. Honestly, I might put this one on my own wish list.

Portable Mini Bike

Price: $$$


These bikes can help people with POTS who deal with exercise intolerance. They can use these bikes from the comfort of home, and this model also functions as an arm cycle. This is a great product for POTS patients to help them get more active and build their exercise tolerance!

POTS Strong Tee Shirt 

Price: $$

This is another cool gift idea for people with POTS: apparel! This tee shirt comes in a variety of pretty colors and features “POTS Strong” on its front. Plus, I think it’s touching if you buy someone with POTS a gift that helps to spread awareness of their condition. It’s a small way to show how much you care!

FitBit Smart Watch 

Price: $$$

Smart watches come with a hefty price tag. But if you have the budget, this gift has the potential to tremendously help people with POTS manage their condition. I depend on my FitBit watch and wear it every day to track my heart rate and activity level.

Dysautonomia Awareness Tote

Price: $

How about a cute dysautonomia awareness tote for your POTSie friend? This bag comes in three sizes (the small and medium are $25 or under), so it’ll fit all of their needs for doctor’s appointments, hospital stays, school, work, or shopping trips.

Yoga Mat

Price: $

I picked this yoga mat because of its thickness and the variety of colors it comes in. A yoga mat makes for another awesome gift idea for people with POTS since many of the strengthening exercises recommended to us are done on the floor. Help make strength training more comfortable by gifting them a thick yoga mat with extra cushion.

iRelief TENS Unit

Price: $$

Give the gift of natural pain relief this year with a TENS unit. My mom first bought this TENS machine for herself, and then I started using it and found it really helpful for my lower back and hip pain. This pain relief method works by naturally blocking pain signals and stimulating the release of endorphins.

Adjustable Laptop Bed Tray Desk

Price: $$$

Another great gift idea for people with POTS is a bed desk that they can use on bad symptom days. This option is a little pricier than others, but it allows the user to adjust the desk angle to accommodate their position. Plus, it’s foldable for easy storage. With this product, POTS patients can still work and study from bed or the couch.

I adore this sweatshirt! It has turquoise dysautonomia awareness colors and a cute rainbow design. Plus, the “POTS Warrior” text on the front would make me proud to wear this sweatshirt any day of the week.

A New Book

Price: $

For some, reading is a favorite hobby to reduce stress. For others, it’s a fun home activity they can do on bad-symptom days when they may be bedbound or focused on resting. Support both types of readers by buying them a new book.

Shop some of my recent favorites:

Night Road by Kristin Hannah

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

How Not to Drown by Jaimee Wriston


Medical Alert Bracelet

Price: $

POTS patients—especially those prone to fainting—should consider wearing a medical alert bracelet. What better way to show someone you care about them than by buying them a gift that could help them in a medical emergency? You can personalize these bracelets to include information about their medical condition(s), allergies, and emergency contacts.

Book Them a Massage 

Price: Varies by service and location

Living with chronic illness is stressful and, for some, painful. Treat the chronic illness warrior in your life to a massage or a spa day. They deserve a day of pampering and relaxation that they can use at their convenience.  


Lululemon Leggings

Price: $$$

My sister asked me if the price of Lululemon leggings is worth it. Without hesitation, I answered, YES! I asked for a pair of Align leggings for Christmas last year and have been so in love with them. I wear them when I exercise or travel, or when my lower body is in pain from #bloodpooling. For me, they work the best for pain. So, if the person you’re buying a gift for lives with chronic pain, then they may benefit from trying these leggings. (Be on the lookout for sales or discount codes to avoid paying full price!)

Floppy Sun Hat

Price: $

What girl doesn’t love a floppy sun hat in the summertime? But what’s great about this hat is that it blocks the sun well, allowing us to stay cooler. I wore this hat often over the summer to help survive the heat. Plus, it’s super stylish and affordable!

POTS Ribbon Charm Bracelet

Price: $

This POTS ribbon charm bracelet made with a turquoise cord is a simple yet cute gift for any POTS patient. It would make a nice gift on its own. Or, you can pair it with a few other small things like a book, a face mask or foot soak, and their favorite salty snacks (Jerky? Gourmet pickles? Popcorn?).

POTS Girl Fall Crewneck Sweatshirt

Price: $$

THIS IS SO DANG CUTE, AND I WANT ONE! It’s a crewneck sweatshirt with the clever saying “Pumpkin Spice & Electrolytes” on it. It comes in multiple color options, too! It may no longer be fall when you give this gift, but this is a gift I think many POTSies would like to have for every fall to come.

POTS Girl Winter Long Sleeve Shirt

Price: $$

This is basically the winter version of the fall crewneck sweater listed above, but I’m here for it, too! It also comes in multiple colors and features “Feeling Tachy & Full of Cheer” on its front, along with a Christmas tree design. How festive is that?
