Do you have a friend/partner/spouse/whatever with Fibromyalgia in your life? I thought I would make it easy for you by giving you a round up of all of the things I am currently wishing for!

Please note that some of my links are affiliate links, if you make a purchase I will make a small commission without extra cost to you.

Reading! Does your person with Fibromyalgia read a lot, like me? You can try Amazon Kindle Unlimited! Just sign up here Kindle Unlimited Membership Plans. Amazon Kindle Unlimited gives you unlimited reading (say what?), unlimited listening to their audiobooks. They now have magazines too! It’s also available for those of us who use Amazon.com.au *squee*. I would enjoy this.

If audio books are more your speed, as they are for me with three little ones, you know you can get a free trial of Audible on Amazon here. I’ve recently started reading a lot more audio books as the hands free option is far easier to access with the wee ones. You will get access to two audio books, plus two Audible Originals, and other cool membership options for 30 days. Cancel anytime if you don’t want the full subscription.


Amazon Prime Gift Membership – you can give 3 or 12 month plans. They have access to: FREE Two-Day Shipping on millions of items; No minimum order size; Instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows; Unlimited, ad-free access to over a million songs and hundreds of playlists. All of these are useful for tired night ins, flare days and just life in general! You can find it here Give the Gift of Amazon Prime. As I said above, I read a lot and one of my favourite authors is Jennifer L. Armentrout – and I cannot think about Amazon Prime without thinking of a character in the book Brave who is obsessed with Amazon Prime!

Sunbeam Microplush Heated Electric Throw Blanket – I’ve written a lot about how heat helps. A self-heating heat pack would have been my ideal, until I saw this. It’s like an electric blanket for the couch. Perfect for a cold winter’s night or the sore Fibro friend.

Morning tea – maybe your friend would love to get out of the house and have a cup of coffee and a croissant at Starbucks with you. If they don’t drive, perhaps you could pick them up and drop them home.

Inspirational cards for meditation practice – I am a big fan of meditation and I created these motivational affirmations for use in meditation practice. They are a digital product that can be printed at home or sent to the printer. A simple, practical gift.

Essential Oils Starter Kit – I have been learning a lot about essential oils for natural health lately. You can sign up here for access to my free resources page with downloadable report about Essential Oils. This set of six is a nice starter pack.

Melissa vs Fibromyalgia: My Journey Fighting Chronic Pain, Chronic Fatigue and Insomnia how about my book? This is everything I have researched, written and learntMelissa vs Fibromyalgia book cover about to fight Fibromyalgia. It’s how I went from miserable to thriving – I still have Fibromyalgia, but it doesn’t dominate as much as it used to.

BONUS: Something that is completely free – a compassionate ear. Please be there for them. The best gift we could ever receive is unconditional acceptance.

  1. Amazon Prime as a gift is something I’d actually really love to receive! It’s one of those things that I’d find useful and fun, yet not want to pay for continually for myself. Great ideas =]

    1. Thanks, me too! Ongoing costs are not easy so gifts are useful. I’m asking for massage vouchers for mothers day too (forgot to add!) as I have to see a physio 2-3 weekly to survive yet would adore a whole body massage as a treat!

  2. I’m also asking for massage gift certificates–a whole body massage is a big wish!
