Tubie & Port Care Gifts

Spoonie Threads Shoulder Snap Tees. These tops are loved because they make dressing easier and give easy access to lines. Plus the snaps can secure lines and are MRI friendly. Available in sizes for adults and kids. New colors arriving this December! 

Spoonie Threads Cath Clips are a great gift or stocking stuffer. These handy clips come in fun bright colors and help secure all types of cords, lines and more!

Consider a Patti + Ricky TubieGo Feeding Tube Adaptive Backpacks for adults and kids. Secure your pump and feed safely in cute designs for kids that include  butterfly, dinosaur, fox, unicorn, and giraffe! Or stylish solid options for adults. 

Zappos Adaptive has Uggs for kids and adults. Fluffy easy on and easy off slippers in playful bright prints make a gift that will be used daily. If these bright colors aren't your style, Zappos has a large selection of other slippers sure to suit everyone's taste.
Stoma Stoma has playful t-shirts and onesies with original tubie-related designs with a lot of humor and wit. Check them out for a humorous gift.

Diabetes Care Gifts

Spoonie Threads insulin pump belts. Perfect for on the go activities! The zipper pocket can hold your pump, meds, phone, keys, earbuds. Simply tuck inside and keep your hands free. 

Patti + Ricky has a variety of fun diabetes medical supply bags. Two soft fabric ones caught our eye--a camo one for days when you want to blend in and a text bag Naturally Sweet with a pink donut for days you're feeling more playful.

Zappos Adaptive has Dr. Scholl's Non-binding Advanced Relief Diabetic socks that are soft and stretchy to give comfort and support. 

Patti + Ricky has a Diabetes cooling headband for a nice gift for someone who is active, outdoors or just simply overheats at times.

Ostomy Care Gifts

Spoonie Threads Ostomy Covers are a great gift to give an ostomate. Options include solid colors like navy, grey and black, humorous text (Oh Crap and #2) and coming this December new patterns!

Note: the Spoonie Threads pink HOT SHIT ostomy cover is available exclusively at Aerie.

Patti + Ricky sell a women's bikini swimsuit with a high waistband ideal for accommodating an ostomy bag. Plus we like the sunny orange color! 

Patti + Ricky also sells pants with side zippers for a flattering look that also makes changing bags easier on the go.

General Support Gifts

Spoonie Threads Recovery blouse is a thoughtful gift for someone post surgery, mastectomy or for a new nursing mother. The material is buttery soft, hangs beautifully and has well placed interior pockets. 

Juniper Unlimited has an assortment of adaptive products. Their Cane Covers are a way to add a little personality to a look. We especially liked the women's leopard cane cover and the men's festive red plaid cover

Inspiration socks on the Juniper Unlimited site tell your favorite Spoonie you get them! We thought the Tough Cookie socks and the Courageous Queen ones would make a memorable gift. 

Spoonie Threads Tees for spoonies and their allies! Choose from various styles and colors with graphics "we see you, we hear you, we believe you" and "love your spoonie-self".

Alivia features clothing inspired by work of creators with disabilities. The distinct vivid patterns and colors are found in dresses, skirts, sweaters, pajamas and accessories. It's too hard to pick just one piece--check them out and find what calls to you. 

Zappos Adpative Ugg’s selection of inclusive footwear, dubbed Ugg Universal, includes the brand’s most popular silhouettes with features that include oversized zippers, stretchy laces, and pull tabs so that getting on a comfortable pair of shoes is never, well, uncomfortable. For anyone.


Update 12/9/2021

Bodysuits size 2-18
shark an rainbow pocket flap bodysuits

This soft adaptive bodysuit has a zipper opening at the front abdomen to access feeding tubes, ostomies, and more. Inseam snaps allow for easy diapering or toileting. This bodysuit can be worn alone, or worn under pants and skirts.

G-Tube Zip Tees
spaceship and shooting star g-tube zip shirt

A soft cotton tee with a concealed zipper across the midsection for easy access to g-tubes, ostomy bags, and other centrally located devices. Express yourself in a colorful tee designed to offer the look and feel of a traditional T-shirt, with the functionality to easily access your devices throughout the day without having to remove your clothing.

Shoulder Snap Tees--new colors!
red, navy and yellow shoulder snap tee

A soft jersey tee with concealed snaps at both shoulders. Why use snaps? Zippers are heavy, and can feel cold and uncomfortable on your skin. Our low-profile snaps have a soft fabric backing, and were carefully sourced to be MRI-friendly. Unlike zippers, our snaps can also be used to secure loose lines during treatment.
