Looking for the best gifts for those with migraine or gifts for someone in chronic pain?
These items are certain to not only make your loved ones happy but also bring great change in their journey to dealing with migraine. Whether you are gearing up for the holiday season, are brainstorming for an upcoming birthday, or want to create the perfect migraine care package – I can personally attest to all the items on this list!
BEST FOR THOSE WITH LIGHT SENSITIVITY
These Axon Optics Migraine Glasses (1) are my first pair of glasses for migraine and I can assure you they definitely help! Not only are they helpful on very migraine sensitive days, but they also are fantastic at preventing an attack from getting worse. I especially like having my glasses (which include my prescription) for difficult tasks for those with migraine such as going super market shopping, visiting doctor offices, traveling in airports, commuting on the train, or working in an office. Use code DWM25 for an EXTRA 25% OFF your order.
The Allay Lamp is a dynamic device that is honestly a must have for anyone that lives with chronic migraine. It can be used as a regular light and provides migraine soothing, narrow-band green light. Allay’s unique band of green wavelengths calms the brain by creating small signals, relaxing your brain so you can get rest. My favorite part of the lamp is that it is chargeable, meaning you can move it anywhere you need it. On migraine sensitive days, I can peacefully take a shower, clean up my kitchen, and read before bed without having to deal with any glaring lights.
BEST FOR THOSE WITH STYLE
Why not advocate for migraine while on the go? I love this adorable and functional Migraine Super Goddess Tote (2) from The Dizzy Cook’s online shop. It can be incredibly powerful to acknowledge you deal with migraine but ALSO that you are still a warrior goddess, despite what you go through. This is another affordable gift option for any occasion (or maybe just a gift for yourself).
If you haven’t heard of the Achy Smile Shop, it is an online store by Erica, a creator living with chronic pain. In her shop you’ll find tons of fantastic gifts for someone in chronic pain. This Migraine Definition Tee (3) though holds a special place in my heart because most folks truly understand what migraine is and that it is much more than just a headache. Plus, it’s an amazing conversation starter for meeting other folks that deal with migraine too! Use code, DEALINGWITHMIGRAINE, for 10% OFF your order!
BEST FOR THOSE TRAVELING
Cefaly (4) is a neurotransmitter device that works to help desensitize a super sensitive, major nerve (trigeminal nerve) in our brain that is routinely involved in a migraine attack. Over time, with continued use of the device, you can lower the sensitivity of the nerve which is why it can help lower the frequency and intensity of a migraine attack, not to mention help with preventing them overall.
While this is one of the more expensive gifts for migraine sufferers, it is an investment that pays off with each use! Cefaly is a drug free treatment but you should not use it if you have any metallic or electronic devices in your head, are suffering from pain of an unknown origin, or have a cardiac pacemaker or implanted/wearable defibrillator. Cefaly routinely runs fantastic promotions where they offer up to 20% OFF, especially around the holidays! Use my code DWM15 for an extra 15% OFF!
Migrastil makes so many wonderful products that are the best gifts for those with migraine. I think this Migrastil Travel Kit (5) though is the perfect present with everything someone with migraine can use on the go. The kit includes: a migraine stick, their soothing shoulder and neck cream, anti-dehydration electrolyte drops, a nausea inhaler (my absolute favorite), a super comfy light-blocking eye mask, and ear plugs. Having a bag of these supplies ready to go can make the thought of traveling with migraine much less stressful!
BEST FOR THOSE NEEDING TO COOL DOWN
Cold therapy is a fantastic and reliable avenue for dealing with head and neck pain. Ice packs can help in more than one way but especially numb pain (due to constricting the blood vessels).
BeKoool Migraine Sheets can be such lifesavers and also make the perfect gift for a migraine sufferer on the go. Unfortunately a migraine attack can happen at any time, including when we are not home with our supply of ice packs. I try to always keep of pack of these in my car as well as my suitcase. While I may look silly driving or shopping at the grocery store, the relief I get from wearing these sheets is totally worth it.
This Comfitech Migraine Relief Hat (6) is soft like you’ve never felt before! This is because the hat and ice pack are one and the hat happens to be incredibly cozy and moldable. The cold doesn’t last more than an hour but I still really enjoy having this migraine product in my arsenal simply because of how comfortable it is to wear, even cuddled in bed. Use code DWM100FF for 10% OFF.
BEST FOR THOSE WITH NAUSEA
Nausea and vomit is surely my least favorite symptom of dealing with migraine. Blisslets (7) stylish bracelets that provide natural relief from nausea. The stylish part is actually incredibly important because they are the only bracelets on the market that double as accessories and a nausea relief tool. I love bringing these for travel like on a cruise and amusement park, as well as for long car rides if I’m having a lot of migraine sensitivities. You can use my code, EVEDWM, for 10% OFF here.
BEST FOR THOSE NEEDING A STRETCH
This Neck Stretcher (8) is a recent favorite I’ve incorporated into my migraine relief tool kit. I only started experiencing severe neck pain from migraine over the past year. It can be incredibly painful for your neck to feel so weak and unable to properly support your head. This gift for migraine sufferers is very affordable and a great step for someone learning how to stretch!
