The holidays can be tough for a migraine sufferer. Stress, food triggers, strong candle scents, and tense family gatherings have a way of taking a toll on people who are prone to migraines and headaches — especially if they’re caused by a TMJ problem.
With so many people here in Southern California living with migraines, the odds of you having a sufferer on your holiday shopping list are pretty high.
…. And guess what? That migraine patient’s wish list probably looks a lot different than your little cousin’s list. Gifts for migraine sufferers are functional and provide support in times of need.
If you’re stumped over what to get your migraine-prone friend or loved one, here’s a few ideas:
- A massage gift card
- A facial roller – which feels like a massage for the face, temples, jaw and neck
- Essential oil diffusers
- Blackout curtains
- Blue light blocking glasses (for people who’s migraines are triggered by screen time)
- Gift certificates for prepared meals and services
- Memory foam with a cooling gel pillow
- A donation to migraine research
Gifts to avoid:
- Perfumes, colognes, scented bath and body products.
- Scented candles.
- Chocolates and food items.
While these gift-giving ideas may not be fun, exciting or glamorous, they will give people a reason to smile.
All of us here at Pasadena Pain Management hope these ideas can help make this holiday season the best one yet.
