20 Best Migraine Relief Gifts you’ll Love this Year

gifts for migraine relief

My 20 best gifts for migraine relief gifts of 2020 are here! For the last few years, I have been putting together lists of my favorite holiday and year-round gifts. This year, I’ve found new products and added them to my list.  Now, I have brought together the 20 best gifts for migraine relief all in one convenient place.

I list my favorite products with discount codes, reviews, and links. The links may be affiliate links that reward me for my recommendation.  I only talk about products I use and love. Some are Amazon links and some are links directly to their website.  I recommend buying from the website if possible to support the company more directly.  But if Amazon is better for you, go for it!  I will be compensated if you click and buy from my links. Thank you, your money helps support my blog and migraine advocacy.

20 Best Migraine Relief Gifts

Before I begin my list, I’d like to remind you of some sensitivities your loved one with migraine may have. Sensitivity to smell is a huge factor in making your gift choices.  Some oils or bathroom products may contain a scent that is triggering. Everyone experiences trigger differently but I don’t advise candles, perfumed lotions, or fragrances without knowing the person’s reactions.

1. Green Light Therapy for Migraine

Allay Lamp

My FAVORITE CHOICE OF 2020

green light and migraine

This year, the green light is all the rage in the migraine world. Studies have been shown to help migraine sensitivity to light and the results have been pretty convincing. After trying both Allay and Norb, I find that I react really well to green light.

Allay Lamp Review

Discount code: $25 off  Allay Lamp

The major difference between the Allay lamp and Norb bulb is exactly that, bulb vs lamp. The Allay lamp is my favorite because I can move it around anywhere (and I do!). The nice thing is that you can flip the lamp to be a white light if that is what you prefer. It also comes with a shade that helps deflect the light in a direction that won’t be irritating to you. It is light, offers a dimmer for adjustment, and can go anywhere.

Norb Wellness Lightbulb

Norb light relief

Norb Wellness Lighting Review

Discount code: SUPPORT10 for 10%off all lights

The Norb Relief bulb is a perfect fit for a nightstand or reading corner. I use it in my family room because by the end of a long day, I’m needing relief. I sit and read with my children and turn off all white lights. This is a cheaper option to try green light therapy to see if it works for you. Check out my GIVEAWAY for Norb Light(12/18/2020 – 12/25/2020)

2. Weighted Products

SensaCalm

SensaCalm Weighted Blanket Review

Cuddle Fabric Weighted Blanket Review

Discount code: MYMIGRAINELIFE for 10% off

NOVEMBER 26, Weighted Blanket Clearance is marked an additional 50% off!

This remains one of my all-time favorite gifts for migraine relief. I have both the weighted cuddle fabric and the travel blanket adored by my son. The large blanket that I have lived on my couch and everyone uses it.  The fabric is so soft and comfortable. But the weight is what makes it comforting. After having a relationship with Sensa Calm for many years, the founder has now invested in the migraine world and donated to Retreat Migraine, and gives back. If you are looking for a weighted blanket, look no further!

Huggaroo

Huggaroo eye compress

Huggaroo Review

Buy weighted eye mask, neck wrap, and more

Weighted blankets aren’t the only thing I love. This year, I was introduced to Huggaroo and all their fabulous products. I had the opportunity to try the eye mask, neck wrap, and weighted lap dog. My children LOVE the weighted lapdog for at-home learning this year. It is a calming ‘friend’ that gives weight, softness, and comfort. The eye pillow can be heated or cooled with scent or scentless.  Huggaroo offers lots of great choices.

3. Migraine Glasses

Axon Optics

Axon Optics Review

Buy Axon

With an increase in screen time this year, my whole house wears some kind of eye protection. My daughter started getting headaches when she started remote learning.  This sent panic through me, as a migraine mama, but my Axon Optics indoor glasses have helped that problem. She noticed a difference on the first day and on days she doesn’t wear them a headache arises by 1:30 pm. I am so happy I had these to share with her and so many options to decrease light and technology triggers.

Avulux

Avulux Review

Buy Avulux now

Coupon Code: MYMIGRAINELIFE

These are a new category different from fl-41 and backed by research in a clinical setting. They are new to me this year and different from the others. As you can see in the pictures, Avulux has more of a grey tint than the rose-colored alternatives. Avulux offers one tint for both outdoor and indoor use. Although I need really dark sunglasses on sunny days, I love these glasses for indoor use, cloudy days, and dusk strolls. The color is different than what I am used to but are glasses I reach for in a variety of ways. These are a great new find and worth a try!

Theraspecs

Theraspecs claims their glasses can filter up to 25 times more problematic wavelengths than other typical blue light glasses.

4. Food and Drink

Pure Wine

PureWine filters wine to reduce hangover gifts for migraine relief

Pure Wine Review

Discount Code: mymigrainelife for 15%off

Special this year….for a limited time only, when you purchase the Silver & Gold Wand 10-Pack, you’ll receive a second box FREE!

Cheers, Happy Holidays! The problem is, drinking can be a migraine trigger. For me, using the Pure Wine wands, I have been able to drink a glass of wine without getting a migraine hangover which hasn’t happened in years. This is a great stocking stuffer and can be used by anyone who gets congested when drinking. It’s a thoughtful gift for migraine relief.

Sprinly

Sprinly Review

Order Sprinly Now

 Receive a free Sprinly tote bag upon ordering a 6, 12, or 18 meal plan with code SPRINLYTOTE. This offer will be live 11/23 – 12/4.

Food delivery is a great idea now more than ever! Remember that food sensitivity and triggers are individual and finding out your loved ones’ diet is important. Having food delivered to her door is a way of sending comfort and convenience. Sprinly is vegan and local in Ohio. They drop off my meals at my door in a cooler bag and all I have to do is open and eat. It is such a convenience to have already made food in my refrigerator that is healthy and available. Cooking and dishes are a struggle for me and I think many people would love the gift of a meal service.

5. Books

Dizzy Cook Cook Book by Alicia Wolf

dizzy cook

I haven’t had time to write a review about The Dizzy Cook but I’ll tell you now, it’s two thumbs up. Not only have I enjoyed many recipes that Alicia created but I have become friends with this fierce advocate this year. Alicia experiences what is called Vestibular Migraine. Her book helps navigate vestibular migraine, triggers, and shares lots of knowledge. She is involved with migraine awareness and is a lovely new friend I connected with in 2020. She’s one of my silver lining friends in a year that seems to have a bit of a cloud over it. My online friendships grew closer this year and I’m happy she is a part of it.

Headache Hat

Headache Hat Review

Buy Headache Hat Now

Headache Hat is my first review ever and still one of my top gifts for migraine relief! I have an entire freezer full of headache hats (all sizes) and use them daily. DAILY! My children use the halo single hat for bumps, headaches, and fevers. It is light and smaller for their little heads. I use the big ones for full coverage and freeze my pain away. Ice is my best natural remedy and Headache Hat has supported migraine events for years.  The owner is touched by the migraine stories she hears and passionate about helping them.

7. Heat

Huggaroo

Huggaroo Review

Another natural gift for migraine relief is heat. I use heat often but in different ways than I do ice. I enjoy ice to freeze my painful head. But I enjoy the heat, to soothe my shoulders and neck tension. I experience a lot of tightness and heat really helps loosen and soothe.

Bed Buddy

Bed Buddy gifts for migraine relief

Bed Buddy (Amazon)

I use the Bed Buddy to warm my cold hands and feet. During a migraine attack, I have trouble regulating my temperature and during a migraine attack my nose, fingers, and toes get frigid. I have had the Bed Buddy for many years and love to wrap it around my hands, feel, and sit with it on my lap to warm my aching body.

8. Natural Beauty Products

Be Natural Organics

Be Natural Organics Reviews

Be Natural Organics Review

Organic cosmetics and face

Natural beauty products will not help a migraine, but it may help your loved one feel better. For me, quality clean beauty products are always a great gift. A little pampering makes for my favorite self-care time.

I love natural beauty products.  I have lots of reviews of lots of brands if you are looking……

10. Crafts

This year, I have embraced art therapy at home. With my children at home, we enjoy coloring, crafting, creating, and being creative. I find that art therapy is a wonderful distraction for migraine pain and calms my body and mind. A basket filled with adult coloring books, colored pencils, markers, pens, and more can spark some creativity for your loved one. A migraine gift box filled with crafts is a great choice.

11. Salt Lamp

Salt Lamp

Himalayan Salt Lamp Review

Buy Salt Lamp Now (Amazon)

My Himalayan salt lamp is not exactly a gift for migaine relief but an item I love. The soft gentle glow of the salt is relaxing but doesn’t change my migraine symptoms. I do, however, feel that it helped with my son’s congestion and breathing issues at night. Plus, it’s pretty.

12. Essential Oils

Organic Aromas

Organic Aromas Diffuser gifts for migraine relief

Organic Aromas Review

BLACK FRIDAY DEAL: Friday, November 27th (for 24 hours)  50% DISCOUNT on ALL 30ml and 50ml essential oils!

Discount code: BLACKFRIDAY50

November 30th (for one 24 hours) 30% DISCOUNT on ALL our Nebulizing Diffusers!

Discount Code: CYBERMONDAY30

You can find diffusers and oils pretty much anywhere.  Buy with caution remembering that your loved one may be triggered by smell. I am very particular about what scent I enjoy and how it affects me. Quality oils would always be looked for and not all are created the same.

Essential oil rollers are my favorite relief that I throw in my purse. Once again, be cautious of smell. I have a roller I love and a coworker was triggered by it.

13. CBD Products

Similar to essential oils, CBD products seem to be everywhere. I have listed 2 that I have tried below. Once again, be cautious and knowledgeable with CBD or Hemp products. Each one is not created with equal quality and you often pay for what you get. Consult a physician if taking supplements or oils to discuss your treatment plan.

14. Black Out Curtains

As you can tell by now, light is a huge factor in My Migraine Life. I like a green light, light filtering/blocking glasses and I like zero light in my bedroom. Blackout shades are on most of my windows in my house. I enjoy a dark cave-like experience in my room and blackout curtains are a necessity.

15.  Apps

Healthline community app

Migraine Buddy

HeadSpace

Insight Timer

Calm

16. Kindle or Audible Subscription

Both offer 30-day trials. Paperwhite does not emit blue light.  It should not affect migraine and should not interfere with sleep.

17. iRobot Vacuum

My iRobot vacuum is such a time and energy saver for me! With a hairy dog and messy children, I need to vacuum my house a lot. Unfortunately, I am not always able to do so. With my cordless and automatic vacuum, now I can run it and save my spoons for a more worthwhile activity.

18. Acupressure Mat

acupressure mat

I’ve had this mat for a few years now. I have to admit, I don’t use it ALL the time. But I do occasionally use it to relieve pressure and feel relief. It’s a very strange feeling but something in my toolbox that I pull out every now and again.

19. At-home Yoga or Workout kit

yoga for migraine

Working out is extremely difficult with migraine. It can be a trigger or a migraine relief. While many of us are at home, a home workout or yoga kit may be a nice way to encourage self-care and stretching. Proceed with caution when giving workout gifts. One year, I was given a set of weights and I just felt like my boyfriend was telling me I needed them. Instead, remember to add a card explaining how yoga may be a gift for migraine relief and how starting slow can lead to improved health.

Yoga starter kit

20. Gift Cards

When in doubt, a gift card is always nice. As a teacher, I am given lots of gift cards. This always feels like such a treat to me and something I use to ‘treat’ myself with. I don’t love spending money on myself, but a gift card is a reminder that someone else wants me to enjoy.

Why are Gifts for Migraine Relief Important?

As someone who lives with daily migraine, I use products every day. Yes, I use medications and alternative therapy, but I’m mostly at home using products. Everywhere you look, there are products geared towards migraine or headache relief. It’s hard to know what works and what is another waste of money.  I try a lot of products and report them to you. It is up to the reader to decide what may work for himself or his loved one.

Regardless of the gift, just showing you are caring and trying to help is nice. Be careful to not make it sound like you have a cure or a simple fix.  Because the internet has a lot of “cures” that just don’t exist.  I can’t tell you if any of these products will work for you or not. My wish is that someone finds relief with what I recommend.

If you have read this far, THANK YOU! And Happy Shopping 🙂

    Awesome! I’m glad it helps!



  3. Kathryn Glen on December 13, 2020 at 6:02 pm

    I love these ideas.i used to get migraines so bad that I would have to go to hospital every time and have an intravenous drip as I dehydrated after being sick and would pass out! However I got Chronic fatigue syndrome/ M.E. 13yrs ago and I now have facial migraine,severe pain around my nose and across my face.im currently on meds but dont know of any alternatives to use as you recommend for migraine.Could you recommend anything? Obviously I cant wear glasses as they sit right on the pain site?



  4. Sarah Rathsack on December 13, 2020 at 8:29 pm

    Always consult your doctor. I’m so sorry you have been living with this for so long! Does ice help you? The headache hat and koldtec are very helpful for me. Everyone is so different so it’s hard to know for sure. I hope you find relief in some way soon!



  5. Sarah Rathsack on December 29, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    I’m sorry you have gone through so much! Does your doctor have any recommendations beyond medication? Does heat or ice help you?
