Standard fluorescents make me feel like it's three in the morning and I 
ought to be in bed. Too much time under them puts me in a terrible mood 
and can bring on headaches.

"Daylight" fluorescents are a lot better -- at least some of them are, 
I haven't tried them all; but did find some I can use at home. I 
haven't tried LED's except in a flashlight, which is a different 
situation and doesn't let me judge whether I could stand them for 
general lighting.

People's reactions to types of light vary drastically. Giving these as 
gifts is a good idea; but unless you already know the tolerance of the 
particular people I'd give one or two bulbs per household, with a note 
suggesting they try them and let you know whether they'd like to have 
more. Or, if there are various types, you could make up a gift box with 
one or two bulbs each of each type.
