Headbands
Using a regular headband can keep excessive sweat from saturating your hearing aids. There are also other accessories that serve the same function as a regular headbands that fit over the hearing aids. Ear Gear makes a headband that fits over top of your hearing aids adding an extra layer of protection from sweat and grime. Hearing Aid Sweatbands do the same thing and also come in a variety of colors.

Dehumidifiers
Dehumidifiers are good a present. They help remove excess moisture from a hearing aid at home, and when people are outside at a sports event there are also portable "puffers" available that blow small amounts of air through a hearing aid or through hearing aid tubing and moldings to keep them clean and obstruction free.

Securing Hearing Aids
If someone is playing a contact sport or a sport that may increase the chance of your hearing aid falling off, you may want to secure the hearing aid by using something like Oto Clip which attaches to the hearing aid and then securely to your clothing. A regular headband can also be positioned to keep hearing aids from falling off as well as a skull cap.

Antimicrobrial Products
Hearing aids tend to gather bacteria and other microbes like fungi when they are exposed to excess moisture. Investing in an Antimicrobrial product for your loved one which can be applied to the hearing aids every few days helps kill off infection causing microbes.

Fingerless Gloves People with hearing aids need to be able to operate them, so fingerless gloves are a good present!

Hearing Aid Test-Many audiologist have ways you can prepay for tests or even hearing aid equipment like batteries.
