It’s December, and Christmas is almost upon is. It’s been a long time since all most people wanted were their two front teeth, and dental related Christmas gift might not be the first thing that springs to mind when thinking of your nearest and dearest. On the other hand, if you’re struggling to find presents these might just be what you’re looking for. Gifts for children, gifts for the man or woman who has everything, even gifts for your dentist…
If you’re thinking tooth related gifts might be rather gruesome, think on. Although – the idea of teeth hanging from your ears might not be immediately appealing, but these antique silver teeth earrings are rather pretty – and certainly unusual. A good present for someone who loves wearing quirky jewellery, perhaps? Other tooth related gifts can fall more in the category of ‘novelty’ gifts – we’re always saying that you shouldn’t use your teeth for things they weren’t designed for like opening bottles. But we’re prepared to make an exception for this bottle opener, especially if it stops the recipient using his or her own!
If you’re thinking of investing in an electric toothbrush as a gift for someone, we stock the Philips Sonicare range of toothbrushes and the Philips Sonicare flosser. Drop in when you’re passing and pick one up – a great present, bought locally too!
Encouraging children to get into a good toothbrushing routine can be a struggle – so the more fun you can make it, the better. If your child finds it hard to brush for 2 minutes, getting them a timer might be a good idea: how about one designed like an owl or a space rocket You can otherwise encourage brushing with themed toothbrush sets featuring favourite characters Thomas the Tank Engine or Frozen perhaps?
For anyone who’s ever complained that they don’t like mint flavoured toothpaste, Marvis has created a range of flavoured toothpastes – and you can by a toothpaste selection pack featuring 7 flavours – ginger toothpaste, anyone? Marvis also produce a stylish black toothbrush – a modern twist on the humble bathroom staple, although make sure it’s suitable for the person you are buying for!
Enter the tooth fairy
Children can sometimes find the process of losing their teeth quite traumatic – so make it more enchanting with some of these tooth fairy related gifts: From a ‘first tooth keepsake’ picture, a pouch for your child to hide his or her tooth in ready for the tooth fairy.

And for the dentist in your life…
From all of us at the Pembrokeshire Dental Centre, we hope you have a very Happy Christmas!
