Keep gift-giving allergy-free this year

The last thing you want to give your loved ones this holiday season is another reason to sneeze.

If you're not sure what to avoid on your shopping list, here's some advice to help you keep the allergens out of the picture.

The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology told HealthDay News that food and desserts are generally best avoided for those with allergies and asthma. Instead of doling out cake and cookies, give them a restaurant gift certificate or kitchenware, the news source recommends.

You may also want to avoid anything pet or fur-related, scented lotions or candles, and certain flowers including poinsettias.

In lieu of all these goods, the best gift you can give to your sniffly friends is a high-quality air purifying system. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is the top rated air purifier on the market and has a variety of settings to capture large particles such as dust as well as molecular irritants and allergens. Its HyperHEPA Filter Stage can capture particles as small as .003 microns.
