There’s this group of our friends that gift manufacturers nowadays seem to take more seriously than ever. I mean our germaphobe pals.

Yeah, that’s correct. Walk to any gift shop and ask for gifts for a germaphobe and you’ll be surprised by the variety on offer.

Well, it’s happening everywhere and I believe is a good thing for the industry that everyone is catered for.

Now, guess the type of gifts that seem to win favor with this group?

Well, I know we can’t blame their being almost paranoid about germs but to be honest, I didn’t expect gift sellers to be this committed.

    How To Approach Gift Buying For A Germaphobe

    Germaphobes are preoccupied with sanitation and seemingly appreciate presents that help their cleaning endeavors so whatever you choose, it’s hygiene first.

    That being said, it’s always advisable to keep the following in mind:

    • Know his/her interests: if, for example, he is a frequent traveler, giving him a product that makes their traveling life easier makes more sense to them. You may ask him cleverly.
    • Go back in Time: If you have previously given them gifts, try to recall what gave them a twinkle in the eye. Something on the same line would probably work marvelously- of course, you can’t buy them same gift twice.
    • Talk To Close friends: Since you would most likely want it to be a pleasant surprise, an easier way of getting a gift idea is to inquire from close friends. He/she could have shared some experiences which can help you understand his tastes better.


    As you know, our comrades wash, sanitize, blow, dust, brush, scour, disinfect and all that stuff so gifts for a germaphobe tend to follow one theme- being neat and germ-free.

    From  germaphobe keychain and all the way to toilet survival kits, it’s all about beating the terrible disease carriers in their own game.

    The prices vary a lot but our list has a healthy mixture so you won’t luck something thrilling to suit your budget.
