Arthritis-friendly accessories for open water swimming


It's coming up to Christmas and I'm thinking of gifts that I can get for my mum, who's gotten into open water swimming. I'm looking to get her some accessories, but I know she's already come across some problems with things like wetsuits due to the arthritis in her hands. In particular, she wants wetsuit gloves and a swim float.

Is there anything I should be considering when buying her the wetsuit gloves or the float? Anything that people have tried before that helped? Any extra advice on wetsuits and what has worked before would be massively helpful too! thanks!
