Adafruit Holiday Gift Guide: PPE

If 2020 could be summed up in a single image, the face mask would be a strong contender. PPE has become a symbol of love and community in many ways, and no doubt giving it as a gift shows someone how much you care about their safety.

We’re carrying a collection of personal protective equipment that varies from disposable face masks to thermal temperature cameras to Adafruit-assembled mylar face shields. We curated this line of products with our DIY maker-community in mind. Whether it’s a tool for temperature/fever detection or a full-length isolation gown, we’ve got you covered.

Check out our guide here.
