10 Gift Ideas for Cancer Patients



When a friend has cancer and is going through surgery, chemotherapy or even radiation, she is probably not feeling very good.  Why not try to add some cheer to her life with a gift?

Here is a list with 10 ideas for you.

  1. A cute tote bag to carry her things to appointments.
  2. A Gift Subscription to NetFlix so she could watch funny movies or uplifting shows.
  3. A useful notebook where she can keep all of her notes.  The Bomber Jacket Circa with some extra pocket dividers or sheet protectors and a business card holder would really be nice.  She can write out whatever the doctors tell her, maybe add some journaling notes, phone numbers and her schedule.  The pocket dividers can hold any loose notes or brochures she needs to keep up with and the business card holder will hold any business cards she accumulates.
  4. An iPod or a personal DVD player would be useful for days when she just wants to watch a movie or listen to books and programs she has downloaded or relax to her favorite music.
  5. Some foot cream and spa socks to keep her feet cozy on treatment days.
  6. Red lipstick.  Gwyneth Paltrow says, “Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
  7. Some fun-to-read Nora Roberts or Sandra Brown books.
  8. Crossword puzzle or Sudoku books.
  9. A new hat or scarf.
  10. Some loose fitting sweats or loungewear.
