Migraine Gifts: What to Get to Help

migraine gifts

Every year I get migraine gifts for Christmas. This year for Christmas, I got a migraine!  Well, actually I got 4 days of insane nausea (including throwing up) plus tons of pain EVERYWHERE!  This did not come as a surprise to me.  I had traveled the weekend prior to different climates and came home to stress with my family that completely threw me over the edge.  So I spent my Christmas Eve, Christmas, both before and after the way I spend most holidays (smiling on the outside and really battling inside). So today is the first day I’ve been well enough to look through my gifts and reflect.  I got some great gifts that I thought I’d share.  None of these I am sponsored by and have tried to refrain from showing brands.

My Migraine Gifts

migraine gifts

  1. Heated neck wrap-  I use both heat and ice for different reasons.   I already have this neck wrap but got another one because it’s one of my favorite migraine gifts.  My old one has broken down over time and once I find  things I love, I tend to buy them again.  I love the weight on my shoulders and neck.  I even lay it on my face and head for sinus pressure.
  2. Headphones-  My husband bought these for me and I am excited to use them!  I don’t like ear buds.  I have a small head and the buds hurt my ears.  So I got some headphones that will reduce noise, are super comfy, and will help me while I fly.  I’m so sensitive to noise and know I will use them a ton.  If you notice, my headphones and water bottle are purple which is the Migraine Awareness color.
  3. Essential oil–  I still have not found a brand and type of oil that I’m in love with so I use a variety in my search.  The kind I received is in a roller that I will keep in my purse.  It has a pleasant smell that I can use to distract me from heavily saturated smelly places and on my pressure points to help me relax.  I currently have one and use it often when I’m out and feel my migraine raising.
  4. Yoga pants- I try to move and stretch my body as much as possible.  As a stay at home mom and woman who fits in a workout where she can, I live in workout pants.  I know it’s a running joke about wearing workout clothes out but I’m busy and if I’m dressed to move, I do.   Working out helps my migraine and sometimes escalates them so it’s a balance. Even without migraine, I love this gift!
  5. Love, hope, migraine tshirt- I have been trying to support migraine awareness by wearing clothing that talk about migraines.  I have supported foundations and received tshirts and I have received ones like this that have the word migraine on it.  I like to wear these clothes in hopes that someone will ask me about migraine awareness or feel comfortable to talk to me about their situation.  Just wearing a tshirt  brings awareness.
  6. Infusion water bottle-  I try to drink as much water as possible to stay hydrated.  I get sick of water!  I got an amazing infusion water bottle with recipes to flavor my water naturally.  When I buy flavored water I see ingredients that I don’t know and what I don’t know about ingredients usually triggers me.  I’m excited to be putting real natural flavors into my water!  I know my kids will love it too!

While I was sick at Thanksgiving and at Christmas I know I’ll live to fight another day.  I’m lucky my family is thoughtful enough to give me some migraine gifts to fight more. The migraine gifts are ones I will use all year long to fight migraine symptoms and continue my fight. I really appreciate migraine gifts because I use so many products throughout the year.

Looking for more name brands and links to migraine gifts? I’ve got lots of gift guides that I am working on each year. Some stay on my list, some drop off while others are added. Check out lots of ideas.

    Is your neck wrap a “bed buddy?” I have one that I heat and put under the covers at the foot of the bed in the winter. My feet get so cold that I have trouble sleeping without it.

    Yep. I use it on my neck & shoulders. I lay it on my face for sinus issues too. I actually had such bad stomach aches I was sleeping with it on my stomach this weekend. I warm my feet & hands too. It’s my second one because I use it so much!
