Bidets, particularly bidet attachments and portable travel bidets, make exceptional and quite unexpected gifts. Giving the gift of a bidet speaks volumes for your affection and concern for the recipient and their health. There are a few of life situations that almost cry out for a beautifully wrapped bidet.
Let’s start with the birth of a baby. After childbirth it is extremely important for new mothers to take proper care of the perineum in order to avoid infection and to speed healing of the rectal and pelvic muscles. Typically there is uncomfortable swelling and pain in this area due to the stretching required to deliver that baby. The last thing you want to do is to rub this area with dry, scratchy toilet tissue. A gentle, cleansing spray of warm water will provide comfort to the area while aiding in the healing process. The new mother will always remember your thoughtfulness. Everyone gets cute and practical gifts for the infant, but few consider what Mom’s needs might be. This is your chance to break away from the pack.
Next, if you’re looking for the perfect gift for someone who drives a truck for a living, is pregnant, overweight or is known to have poor and unhealthy dietary habits – the bidet attachment or portable bidet is just what you’re looking for. According to researchers, people in the above categories tend to develop hemorrhoids more frequently than the average individual. When the veins in your rectal area, become swollen, a hemorrhoid occurs. The infected region of your backside may be tender to the touch and you may feel a bump where there shouldn’t be one. Some of the more serious symptoms of hemorrhoids include painful itching, broken skin, and bleeding. Part of soothing and treating this condition includes fresh water washing and soaking of the area. Bidets to the rescue!
Finally, for the avid traveler on your gift list, there is a portable travel bidet which is growing in popularity. There is so much concern, and rightly so, about bacteria and germ contamination related to heavily populated areas, air port terminals, train stations, hotels and restaurants. The thought of using the public rest room in any of these locations gives us all pause. We try to do our best, but sometimes that just isn’t enough and we find that we could use a bit more help. That’s where the portable travel bidet comes in. It provides non-irritating, sanitary, warm water cleansing of delicate private areas, and provides the user with a convenient and discrete method of personal hygiene while on the go.
