Help take the edge off
Whether it’s back pain, achy knees, a throbbing hip, muscle pain, or migraines that won’t quit, most of the year you can only sympathize with people who are in pain.
But on holidays and special occasions, you have a chance to give gifts and gadgets that take the edge off—whether it’s for people who need occasional pain relief or for those who need help year-round.And there are a lot of them. Nearly one-third of Americans have experienced chronic pain or have a chronic pain condition. Here are a few gifts that can help them out.

Nearly all people who have fibromyalgia, a chronic condition characterized by fatigue and muscle pain, say they have problems sleeping, according to a 2007 study.
This could be for a variety of reasons, but the support from this pillow ($35-45, amazon.com) will at least help eliminate neck and back pain that may be keeping them awake.
