Want to add a little holiday flair to your hearing aids? We’ve compiled our favorite tips and tricks to make your aids sparkle! Whether you like to go big and bold or keep it subtle and classy, we’ve got ideas to help you stand out from the crowd.
Materials: Inspiration is everywhere! You can use a variety of materials to decorate your hearing aids, including holiday themed nail stickers, scrap-booking stickers, and adhesive rhinestones. Washi tape is also a popular choice; this thin, inexpensive tape comes in a variety of colors and patterns and can be removed easily without damaging your hearing aids. You can also experiment with charms, chains, and other jewelry making supplies to really customize your look.
Precautions: We strongly recommend that you only use self-adhering, easy to remove materials to avoid damaging your hearing aids. Never use loose glitter directly on your aids, as it can get stuck inside the aid and damage it. Never apply decorations to the microphone, buttons, or battery door, as this could diminish the functionality of your aids. Using washi tape as a base can help make other decorations easier to remove, since its adhesive is often weaker than that of regular stickers. Simply cut a piece of tape to fit your hearing aid, attach it to the area you want to decorate, and stick the decorations to the tape.
Pre-Made Options: If you don’t want to fuss with designing your own decorations, there are a variety of sellers on websites like Etsy that offer custom-made stickers, charms, and tube decorations for every occasion!
