Whether you are a migraine sufferer looking for a gift to add to your own wish list, or if you are shopping for your loved one with migraine, look no further! Here are my true and tried suggestions for the best gifts for migraine sufferers:

1. Neck and Shoulder Heating Pad

Neck and Shoulder Heating Pad by Pure Enrichment

heat therapy for migraine relief

Did you know that approximately 80% of people with chronic migraine experience neck pain as a migraine symptom? It is a very common migraine symptom. It is actually much more frequent than nausea.

Heat therapy can be an effective treatment for migraine and neck pain. This neck and shoulder heating pad by Pure Enrichment is electric and needs to plug into an outlet. The design wraps around the neck and shoulders with a magnetic neck closure to keep it from falling off. It has an auto shut-off timer if you want to use it before bedtime. It is extremely comfortable and soothing.

I get severe neck pain with my migraine attacks. I have been using this heating pad daily for so many years and have gifted it to family and friends! It is one of my favorite gifts for migraine friends because it is affordable and offers immediate relief.

2. Migraine Glasses

4. Migraine Cookbooks

Whether you are following a migraine diet or not, The Dizzy Cook’s cookbooks make fun gifts for migraine sufferers. Alicia has now written two books, which I keep on my kitchen shelf.

The Dizzy Cook – Specifically written for people with migraine, this cookbook features more than 90 delicious recipes and dozens of helpful tips to help combat migraine symptoms through diet and lifestyle. This cookbook is an excellent choice if you want to try a migraine-elimination diet and need recipes to guide you. However, I use it simply as a cookbook of migraine-friendly recipes. It is also a fantastic guide for people with vestibular migraine.

The Mediterranean Migraine Diet – Alicia co-wrote this book with her neurologist, Dr. Beh! Based on the popular Mediterranean diet, this cookbook goes beyond migraine elimination diets. The book includes recipes, meal plans, Alicia’s tips, and Dr. Beh’s scientific information. This makes an excellent gift for people with migraine.

6. Cold Therapy

Cold therapy is another effective migraine relief strategy for migraine sufferers. I always thought cold therapy didn’t work for me. Turned out I was just using the wrong ice packs. Here is my favorite migraine head gear for cold therapy:

Koldtec Halo – The Halo delivers targeted cold therapy with flexible ice that can bend and contour to the natural shape of the head. It comes with extra ice that you can keep in the freezer and replace it throughout the day. I have homeschooled my kids in this halo during the pandemic many times!

7. Books and Audiobooks

reading made easy with kindle and audible

Reading is one of my favorite self-care activities. Since having kids, I prefer listening to audiobooks while running errands or doing housework. An Audible subscription would make a perfect gift for a book lover whose migraine symptoms or busy lifestyle get in the way of reading physical books. Whatever the preference, here are a few options:

Kindle Paperwhite – If you or your loved one prefers reading e-books, Kindle Paperwhite is one of the better e-readers for migraine sufferers. It does not emit blue light, so it does not affect migraine or interfere with sleep.

Audible Subscriptionif you prefer listening to audiobooks like me, I suggest trying out an audible subscription! Audible offers a great selection of books and audio entertainment for $14.95 for Premium Plus after the 30-day free trial period. Sign up for a free 30 day trial!

8. Yoga Mat

This yoga mat with extra cushion and support is perfect for migraine yoga. There is research that adding a regular yoga practice to a migraine treatment regimen may help to reduce the intensity and frequency of migraine attacks.

9. Inspirational Jewelry

Inspirational jewelry

Mantras can relieve stress, anxiety, fatigue, and improve mood, all of the things that are helpful for migraine sufferers. You can now wear mantras on elegant jewelry and have a daily reminder of inspiration, positivity, and mindfulness.

Mantra Band jewelry are some of my favorite pieces, which are inspirational and powerful.

10. Cleaning Gadget

Tineco iFloor 3 Wet/Dry Hard Floor Vaccum Cleaner

Cleaning while chronically ill is no easy feat. My least favorite chore has always been washing hardwood floors. I never had a good cleaning strategy for the floors which made me avoid doing them most of the time. Well, enter the vacuum mop discovered by my best friend. Now I cannot live without it and my friends and family have one too!

It is cordless, lightweight, and I grab it on a whim and wash my entire downstairs without making official plans to clean. This gadget is a dream and it makes my migraine life easier.

Remember the Basics

I have personally tried and loved all these products on the list. Each one serves a special purpose in my migraine life, which requires careful management of my symptoms.

Although all these products would make the best gifts for migraine sufferers, don’t forget about the basics: a text saying hello, a phone call, sending a card or flowers, and other acts of kindness, which often carry just as much, if not more meaning to people who are chronically ill.
